Premier Hendrikus Coliun urged in a radio broadcast today that generous support be given tomorrow’s countrywide collection for Jewish refugees. He declared that since Nov. 10, the Netherlands has admitted about 4,000 refugees, whose maintenance would require more than 2,000,000 guilders (about $1,100,000).
