D. P. Study Is 'Democracy in Action'
The Iowa committee on resettlement of displaced Europeans reporte4 to the state's congressmen Wednesday that Iowans have furnished "a worthwhile example of democracy in action."
The committee's report, made public earlier, was submitted to Iowa congressmen by the committee chairman, Secretary of State Rollo H. Bergeson.
Bergeson said the survey and the report "were designed to give Iowa's congressmen a true picture of the willingness of Iowa's people to take part in the solution of this . . . humanitarian problem."
Bergeson said the Iowa report is the first completed by any state. It has been forwarded to a national organization in Washington studying D.P. resettlement, and will serve as an initial sampling of national opinion.
The report declares that the committee's surveys of church, labor and farm groups disclosed that Iowa "would welcome at least its mathematical share" of displaced persons.
