James T. Nicholson, American Red Cross representative in Berlin, has gone to Geneva to consult with Wayne Chatfield Taylor, head of the Red Cross delegation abroad, on difficulties arising in the distribution of relief in Poland, according to cables received here today.

The Red Cross is attempting to bring pressure on both and British and the Germans so they can continue to bring into Poland supplies of medicine and clothing.

An attempt will be made to persuade the Germans to modify their prohibition on American supervision of the distribution of Red Cross supplies in Poland. The British Ministry of Economic Warfare has issued orders that no more supplies for Poland be allowed through the blockade until American supervision is assured with proper guarantees.
