Representations Made by Hull

Secretary of State Cordell Hull today indicated that he had made representations to the Cuban Government, cautioning against passage of the bill which would confiscate more than $1,000,000 in American funds advanced as bonds for the entrance of refugees into Cuba.

Questioned at his press conference on the matter, Secretary Hull said that developments were not such that he could make public the conversations at this time. It was learned from other sources, however, that strong pressure has been brought to bear by Washington and that the Cuban Government is now inclined to kill the bill.
