Two refugee sisters, separated for more than two and a half
yedrs, were reunited recently when a little girl bearing the tag

in the United States receive adjustment and integration assistance
from the National Refugee Service, which derives its funds from
the United Jewish Appeal for Refugees, Overseas Needs and Pales

American Jewry.

Willkie Charges Nye With
Arousing Anti-Semitism
uing to press his charge that spon
sors of the Senate movie probe
had sought to rouse anti-Semitic
sentiment in their isolationist
campaign, Wendell Willkie in an
interview with the Jewish Tele
graphic Agency pointed out that
there had been no denial of this
fact by Senators Gerald P. Nye
and Bennett Clark, sponsors of
the investigation resolution.
Nye, in testimony before a
Senate Inter-state Commerce Sub-
Committee, denied any personal
anti-Semitism, but voiced the be
lief that active support of inter
ventionist policies by leading
Jewish writers and other figures
would create strong racial feel
“Mr. Nye’s statement makes it
plain that the sponsors of this
resolution have no reluctance to

New York (JPS)—The Inter-
American Jewish Conference,
postponed on several occasions be
cause of international develop
ments, has now been scheduled for
the Southern Hotel, Baltimore, on
October 26th, 27th and 28th, the
American Jewish Congress, its
sponsor, has announced. Lack of
adequate facilities in Washington,
the original place for the meeting,
caused the transfer to the adja
cent city. The American State
Department is reported to have
given its “sympathetic consent” to

from South and Central Ameri

fan the flames of latent anti-
Semitism in their drive to smear
the motion picture industry,
which, in turn, is only an effort
to hamstring the American for
eign policy through coercion,”
Willkie declared. He added that
acceptance of Senator Nye’s theo
ries regarding the danger of anti-
Semitism developing because of
interventionist activities would
have the effect of “denying the
right of free speech to a substan
tial and thoroughly loyal part of
our citizenry.”
Senator Nye Asked
To “Investigate
Chinese Control
Os Laundries”
The Non-Sectarian Anti-Nazi
League yesterday wired Senator
Gerald P. Nye of North Dakota,
asking him if he felt that an “in
vestigation of Chinese control of
laundries” in the United States
might ,be in order.
of ttte -wire fellows:
*\“Have you considered the large
control over our laundries exerted
by Chinese-Americans ? In view
of your repeated attacks, together
with Charles A. Lindbergh, upon
racial groups for alleged control
of various industries, just think
of the magnitude of the control of
laundries by Chinese-Americans.
“Chinese laundry-owners are at
tempting to influence the Ameri
can people to keep their shirts
washed. There is a vast conspir
acy to influence Americans to
ward a cleanliness drive which is
opposed by 80% of the people,
particularly the younger genera
“Is oqr youth to be forced to
participate in matters with which
it feels it has no concern ? Is our
youth to be sacrificed upon the
altars of unwanted cleanliness by
h minority group?
“We want you to realize that
despite this request, some of our
best friends are Chinese. You
really can’t blame them either for
trying to make an honest living.
But we feel that the investigation
suggested above would certainly
be in the same class as the other
samples of Nazi propaganda you
are dishing out, and should be
treated with just as much respect
and consideration.”
