The New York Times reported from Havana today that deliberations of the immigration committee of the labor conference had revealed the American countries as willing to consider orderly immigration in preparation for the expected post-war flood of immigrants.

“However,” the dispatch added, “the conference was reluctant to consider the immediate problem of European refugees on the grounds that the problem was of a political nature and that the nations here represented were only discussing the permanent, agricultural-settler type of immigrant.”
