MARSEILLE, France, Aug. 15 (AP)-A year after their first ill-fated attempt to reach Palestine, 355 Jewish men, women and children arrived on the French Riviera today to make the voyage to Israel.

The Jews are among those who sailed clandestinely on the ship Exodus 1947. They were turned back by British warships and returned to Germany.

This time they arrived on special trains, accompanied by American troops. The exact time of their sailing was not known.
