65,000 Sudeten
Jews Seek Entry
To United States

  Vienna (AP)—United States consu-
lar officials today reported a “con-
siderable increase” in the number
of Sudeten Germans applying for
entry into the United States.

  They said applications began to
pour in, chiefly from Jews, as soon
as it became clear the Sudeten
territory was to be absorbed by
  So  many  residents  of  German
Austria  want  to  emigrate  to  the
United States that under the present
quota of 600 a month it would take
more than nine years for all the
applicants to get past Ellis Island.
The consulate already has a wait-
ing list of 65,000 names.
