Bill Would Allow Special Entry For Adopted Tots

Washington, Mar. 30 (AP)-  The United States would grant 500 alien children under six years of age special permission to enter the country as adopted children of Americans abroad if Congress adopts a resolution introduced by Rep. Francis E. Walter (D., Pa.).

The measure provides that such children would have to be adopted by U.S. citizens abroad in the country's armed forces, or who are employed by the U.S. government.

The authorization would terminate Dec. 31, 1954.

The children, in addition to having been adopted by Americans, would have to be eligible for immigrant visas and comply with all other provisions of the existing immigration laws.
