10A OUR SUNDAY VIsrrol~ The Observer Edition November 16, 1952 Urge ace n Wasington -- (NC) -- Discarding of the "rigid, impractical" national origins quota" system in present immigration law and replacing it with a flexible distribution formula under control of Congress has been advocated by Edward M. O'Connor former U.S. Displaced Persons Commission member. "Provision could be made for a joint committee of Congress, or an independent commission of out- standing citizens or a combination of both," Mr. O'Connor explained, "to determine how the quota num- bers should be distributed. If a dual basis of domestic needs and international requirements was used to arrive at allocations, say every six months, we would then be on our way to an elastic, dynamic immigration policy." Mr. O'Connor's views were ex- ~mressed in an article called "The migration Debate and Its Central Issue" in Catholic Action, monthly magazine of the National Catholic Welfare Conference "published here. Mr. O'Connor was an official with War Relief Services--N.C. W.C. before his appointment to the Displaced Persons Commission in 1948. ula a communism must, by law, be 'charged," Mr. O'Conncr wrote He pointed out Germany's quota is 25,957, but that 50 per cent of it already is mortgaged by the Dis- placed Persons Act. He also de- tailed the following quotas mort- gaged by 50 per cent under the DP Act: Estonia, 116; Latvia, 236; Lithuania, 386; Poland, 6,524; Czechoslovakia, 2,874; Hungary, 669; Rumania, 291; Bulgaria, 100; Albania, 100; and Soviet Russia, 2,798. Mr. O'Connor said that the total number of immigrants theoretically admissible to the United States in a year is some 154,000, but that l records over a period of years show that some 50 per cent of the total quotas authorized have been used The writer pointed out that if, as frequently has been advocated there was a pooling of unused quotas, it would make available between 70,000 and 75,000 quota numbers a year. "When all the debating is finish- ed and the dust has settled in the arena, the central issue will be Mrs. Stevens Visits Church Daily To.., ! ...... ? tngs Mrs. Anna E.
