WKDNKSIMY. JULY If,. l!M7 Congress Urged To Act on Urgent Refugee Problem Three Members of Truman's Cabinet Go Before Committee WASHINGTON, July 1C- (UP) — Secretary of Slate George c. Marshall and other high administration officials told Congress today that early resettlement of Europe's refugees is vital to U. S. world leadership of peace. Marshall, Secretary of War Robert P. Patterson, and Secretary of Commerce W. Averill Harriman asked n house judiciary subcommittee for quick action on legislation to permit entry to the United States of 400,000 displaced pcrso:|; in the next four years. President Truman has repeatedly asked passage of the bill, but Republican leaders doubt it can be enacted in this session. Marshall salt; the rest of the world is watching to sec "if we, practice what we preach." He said "our moral leadership" Is at stake. Patterson told the subcommittee that resettlement of the refugees would "be a significant factor in promoting ol lasting world peace." Criticizes long Delay Any further drfay, Harriman said in a statement sent to the subcommittee, would suggest "callous neglect of the desperate need for assistance of these victims of war." Marshall snid that to continue indefinitely the segregation and maintenance of DP's in Germany would have a deteriorating effect not'only on them but on Europe, vln calling for passage of the bill, Marshall said this country must "demonstrate that WE are not retreating behind the Atlantic Ocean." Rep. Ed Gossett, D., Tex.. In questioning Marshall charged that Russia was sending Jews into American DP camps with a view to getting them into this country for subv'er- '. sive purposes. Marshall contended that the Jews Gossett referred to were refugees from Poland. Has Quick %nswcr for Tex.ln Gossett remarked that this country has more nlleris than any other and Marshall retorted: "That is the significance of the statute of Liberty." "If we practice what we preach, -.Marshall tola.,.the -.subcommittee, "if we admit a substantial number of these people as imigrants, then with what others .ire already doing and will do we can actually bring an end to this tragic situation." The United States Is in a better position than any other na-i.in to receive a large quota of refugees. Marshall said. "We have numbers of theiT stock already in tnis country who know their language and who have the resources and interest to assume the task of lilting n relatively small number of their kinsmen into our vast economy, without expense to this nation in their resettlement, and with a reasonable assurance that they will not become public charges." Urging prompt action on the legislation which has been tied up in committee for more than three months, Marshall said: "We must continue to keep these allies of ours, these captives of the Germans, indefinitely In the camps — prolonging their abnormal existence and killing their hope."
