No Relief Without U.S. Supervision, Commission States

In comment on Clarence E. Pickett’s statement in Washington, it was authoritatively declared today at the office of the Commission for Polish Relief that it was “impossible to have relief action in Poland without American supervision.”

The Commission spokesman added: “The donors in the United States expect to have reports on the use to which their money is put. We still have hope that the German Government will consent to this supervision. We had received complete assurances from the German authorities that there would be no discrimination between Jews and Christians. Every paragraph of the agreement said that ‘this relief will be distributed alike to Christians and Jews.’ The basic point now appears to be to gain American supervision.”
