Citizens Committee Offers Its Aid to Senate Body Investigating Dp Situation

The Citizens Committee on Displaced Persons today offered to cooperate with a Senate sub-committee which will investigate the European DP situation and said “the eyes of the world will be focused upon these investigators, whose report will spell the difference between life and death for 400,000 worthy human beings.”

In a telegram to Sen. Chapman Revercomb, chairman of the investigating group, the Citizens Committee said it was pleased that “definite action finally is being taken with respect to these innocent victims of war.” The Committee has supported the Stratton Bill which would permit the emergency entry into the United States over a four-year period of 400,000 persons now in European DP camps.
