EDITORIAL


       A man, uprooted, stands bewildered in an alien land. Somewhere
a hand reaches out to help. Behind the compassionate gesture there is a
mind that understands. If the help is to be truly effective, it must be based
on knowledge, and experience. Behind the knowledge and experience
gained are the rich sources whence they came.
       The International Migration Digest is and strives to become even more so,
such a source. From its inception as a little paper concerned with the
problems of one group of people, it has ever broadened its scope to em-
brace the needs of all migrant peoples everywhere, of all nations, all races,
all religions or of no religion.
       In this still expanding program, the Digest is to become the International
Migration Review, and is to be issued quarterly. It is increasing its committee
of valuable consultants and includes some of the most widely experienced
men in the field of sociological studies of migrant problems. The variety
of material used, the sources of that material all make the Digest the most
central and all-inclusive locus from which to explore all avenues of study
and findings in the field. Articles, news, legislation information, book re-
views all are sought to this end.

what do they find, what will their children be and their children's children?
How can we help? The questions seem simple. The answers are not. There
is a tremendous complex of empirical study involved in those answers. The Inter-
national Migration Digest is, and seeks to become ever more deeply involved
and therefore wishes to be the channel of the results of the scientific findings.
It urges now the cooperation, closely, of all centers of study, and is especially
interested in original articles in the field.
       The International Migration Digest is the organ of the Center for Migration
Studies, itself an integral part of the Center in Rome. The Digest is severely
disciplined in its published material. It demands a high standard of scholar-
ship, of technical exactness in its articles. It is highly objective, and where
there is divergence of opinion between editor and contributor, the contri-
