I.r.o. Head Appeals for Funds for Immediate Transportation for 20,000 Dp Immigrants

Twenty thousand European refugees and DP’s could be resettled immediately in new homes if ocean transport ware available, it was stated here today by William Tuck, executive-secretary of the Preparatory Commission for the International Refugee Organization.

Tuck appealed by letter to the 21 member governments of PCIR0 for advances from next year’s contributions to a special fund for ocean transport authorized at the January meeting of the Commission. This fund would enable the organization to charter ships to move the 20,000 refugees already selected for immigration and completely documented by national selection missions operating in DP camps in Germany, Austria and Italy.
