State to Face Men Preblsms A
Seaalt of Foreign
Chicago, Sept 18. Immigrant
trains are once more arriving in
Chicago bringing foreign passen
gers whose number is H&st ap
proaching the pre-wr level. Miss
Orace Abbott, executive secretary
of the Immigrants' Commission of
Illinois, said here recently.
"Th state is sure to have new
problems and new aspects of the
old problems to deal with as a re
sult of the present influx," Miss
Abbott' said. "The people who are
now arriving come from suffering
and devastated regions of Europe
and Will 90 doubt bear the impress
of what they have endured during
the past six years."
The Illinois commission expects
to achieve results by study of h
changing conditions, by keeping n
touch with immigrant: groups, and
by making accessible to them Of
ficial and private agencies which
can be Pf assistance during their
period of readjustment, Miss Ap-
"Wt axpiiunea.
At present social study of coal
mining towns is oeing made and
the educational heeds ' and oppor
tunities offered the Immigrant who
Is above the age of compulsory
scnooi attendance are being investi
gated. :
"Somewhat of the scope of the
work before thl commission can be
seen," said Miss Abbott "when it
4s explained that in 1910 there were
40260 foreign born residents in
Illinois, and that from ltlo to 1S1T
there were OT.tM immigrants who
gave Illinois aa their destination."
Of the approximately half million
Immigrants who came to Illinois
during the last feeade only, about
9 Per cent were, English speaking,
IT Per cent were Polish, 15 6 per
veni itaiian, a per cent Heprew, 7
per eeat 8ava from the Balkan
States, 4.1 per cent Lithuanians and
Letta. 4.1 per cent Greeknud 3.1 per
