Nations Meet
To Find New
Jewish Haven
Countries Willing To Take
Only A Limited Number
Of Penniless Refugees
LONDON, Dec. 1.-(P)-Represen-
tatives of the United States, France,
Great Britain, The Netherlands and
Brazil will meet here tomorrow to
study the great task of finding homes
for Europe's harassed Jews, particu-
larly those in Germany.
They form the' "inner" committee
of a board formed at Evian-Les-
Bains, France, last summer by dele-
gates of 32 nations and sponsored by
President Roosevelt.
The British chairman, Earl Win-
terton, and the American, George
Rublee, permanent executive director
of the international committee, are to
report on the reaction in other coun-
tries which were asked to help.
Taylor Arrives'
Myron C. Taylor, American indus-
trialist and vice-chairman of the in-
ternational body, arrived today for
the meeting. If concrete proposals
are formulated to deal with the prob-
lem, representativs of all 32 coun-
tries likely will be summoned.
Some countries have expressed a
willingness to take refugees on cer-
tain conditions and in limited num-
bers. But because German Jews are
allowed to take only a small amount
of money when they emigrate; some
nations are unwilling to admit more
than a few families.
Rublee has approached the Ger-
man government to receive him ',o
discuss the possibility of letting refu-
gees take more money out of Ger-
many. German officials said they
would consider the proposal but gave
no more tangible replies to repeated
requests.
First Group Arrives
Meanwhile, the first group of 300
Jewish children, whom England
agreed to receive, was. due tomorrow
at Harwich from Germany. .
Australia disclosed she would ad-
mit 15,000 refugees within three
years.
Prime Minister. Chamberlain has
announced surveys in British Guiana,
Tanganyika and elsewhere to deter-
mine the suitability of wide areas for
colonization.
The Netherlands Government,
which already has admitted some
Jewish children, planned to receive
1,500 more.

Campus Calm
AS Mysterious'
SignsAppear
By BARTON KANE
There has been considerable spec-
ulation during the past few days con-
cerning the purpose of the great num-
ber of colored triangular paper slips
with mysterious symbols on them that
recently have appeared on bulletin
boards and strategically placed trees
at various points on the campus.
Theories have been advanced by a
number of authorities in an attempt
to explain these cryptic missives,
though apparently with little success.
The most frequent, though usually
offered with the tongue-in-cheek at-
titude, is that they are communica-
tions from the "Men of Mars," pub-
licized so well by Orson Welles.
It seems unquestioned that the
notes are the product of an intelli-
gent and crafty mind, a number of
students have stated, particularly in
view of their careful execution and
their systmatic placement on the
campus. The charges that the slips
are merely some childish prank or
the product of the warped mind of a
crank are thus more or less obvated.
Students of egyptology that were
interviewed concerning the matter
had obviously been deeply impressed
by the symbols displayed, one even
going so far as to 'state that they

bore a curious resemblance to certain
footnotes on the famed Rosetta
stone, though he stated further that
they semeed to have been consider-
ably corrupted by modern usage.
The suspicion that the colored slips
were due to the machinations of Tri-
angles, junior honorary engineering
society, was disproved late yesterday;
when a high official in the organiza-
tion disclaimed any ',knowledge of
them.
The possibility that the signs are
instructions for some secret organiza-
tion to begin a systematic sabotage
in the University were held utterly
groundless in view of the fact that
they had been so widely distributed.
There still remained an air of appre-
hension concerning the mysterious
missives, however. The general opin-
ion was that the campus should main-
tain a stoic calm and await further
developnients.
On the whole, it seemed more than
likely that the signs were merely a
publicized gag on the part of some
organization or other.

Five planes dumped 70 bombs over
Barcelona. Most fell in the sea. One

Insurgent aerial operations in-

pursuit planes approached Piugcerda
but turned away without attacking.
French anti-aircraft batteries made
ready but the planes did not fly over
French soil.
Spain's battlefronts were report-
