Every American consulate and embassy -frcm the big ones in the world's major capitals like London ami Moscow to the tiny consulates in far away, little-heard of lands-is besieged daily !jy people wanting to «ome to America. /The (iron curtain docs not prevent the people behind it from trying—evcr\ though they must know what neither the American nor Soviet policy gives them much hope. The U. s. immigration laws prevent any but a selected few from celling the much desired visa in (heir passport, which will alloiv them to conic to America. Hopes of 400,000 refuRces and displaced persons in Germany—victims of Nazi loriyrc and concentration tamps for veins—were (loomed by Uie failure of Congress to act on an urgent presidential request to admit that number to this country. They must fa :c at least another year of American concentration camps.
