The Soviet embassy here will make Russian ships available for the transportation of relief supplies to the Jews in liberated sections of Poland, as soon as such arrangements are approved by Moscow, a delegation of the Canadian Jewish Congress was assured yesterday by Soviet ambassador George Zarubin.

The delegation, headed by Samuel Bronfman, Congress president, discussed with Mr. Zarubin the various problems involved in getting, food, clothing, medicine and other relief supplies to the Jews of Poland.
