A promise that Polish refugees in Russia – among whom are hundreds of thousands of Jews – will continue to receive feed, clothing and medicine on a lease-lend basis from the United States has been given to Jan Stancyzk, Polish Minister of Social Welfare, by Edward Stettinius, American Lease-Lend administrator, it was announced here today in Dziennik Pelski, official organ of the Polish Government-in-Exile.

In the course of the conference between Minister Stanczyk and Mr. Stettinius the Polish official informed the Lend-Lease administrator concerning the situation of the Polish refugees in Russia and the Middle East and discussed the possibilities of aiding these refugees, the Polish newspaper stated.

Meanwhile, Polish Jewish circles here received word from Kuibyshev that Dr. Henryk Schrieber, Jewish Socialist leader and for many years a member of the Cracow municipal council, died in Siberia on June 27.
