Refugee Commissioner Alekna told the J.T.A. today that the Lithuanian Government is negotiating with Soviet Russia and Germany on the question of repatriating refugees.

Alekna said that refugees would be obliged to seek emigration possibilities but that in the meantime the Government would try to alleviate their grave situation. He said labor permits would be issued to refugees on an individual basis.
