Firm Policy Toward Reich Would Force New Attitude on Refugees, Ex U.S. Diplomat Holds

A firm attitude toward Germany on the refugee problem to for her to allow refugees sufficient expenses to reestablish themselves in other countries was advocated today by Robert Peet Skinner, former American publisher and diplomat.

Writing in The Times, Mr. Skinner advised that interested nations inform Germany that her refugees would not be admitted unless they were provided with all expenses and had at least part of their property restored to them in Germany. Mr. Skinner declared that such notice would force Germany to revise her policy and deal with the countries willing to accept refugees. “We should stand up to Germany in a cold, practical manner, “he said, “and in the way we will render a better service to the suffering Jews.”
