The League of Nations moved today to extend to Sudeten refugees the protection of the Provisional Agreement of July 4, 1936, and the International Convention of Feb. 10, 1938 in accordance with a decision of the Council at its January session. Secretary-General Joseph C. Avenol circularized League members with a memorandum of Sir Herbert Emerson, High Commissioner for Refugees, regarding extension of the agreements. After receipt of replies, Sir Herbert will draft a report for the September session of the Assembly.
