Download PDF for this date

A statement has been issued by the New York headquarters of the Nansen Relief Commission declaring that the Commission will continue its Food Draft Service to Russia in order to meet the urgent need for same there.

The reports that the Nansen Commission and the ARA were dismantling the emergency free food distribution apparatus and will no longer handle clothing packages has led to the erroneous impression that the Nansen organization was quitting the relief field entirely.

The Nansen Relief Service desires to correct this impression, the statement declares.
