U.s., British Govts. Accept French Invitation to Three-power Conference on Immigration

The United States Government has accepted a French invitation to a three-power conference in Paris on refugee migration, a State Department spokesman announced today.

The French invitation was made in notes to the British and U.S. Governments Oct. 31, following a British protest over the sailing of Jewish refugees from Marseilles to Palestine. The United States will be represented at the parley by officers attached to the U.S. military government in Germany, the U.S. political advisor’s office in Berlin and from the headquarters of U.S. forces in Europe.

(In London a Foreign Office spokesman announced that the British Government had also accepted the French invitation.)
