The difficulties of finding a satisfactory solution to the problem of “permanently uprooted groups” were stressed by George L. Warren, State Department advisor on refugees and displaced persons, in a speech today to the 24th school of International Relations at Radcliffe College.

Citing the inter-relation of economic revival and “selective immigration” to secure particular professional, technical or agricultural skills, Warren emphasized the importance of political and cultural factors in determining immigration policies. “Countries of immigration tend to avoid the introduction into their territories of old world political and cultural attitudes which may survive to retard early assimilation to the culture of the adopted country,” he said.
