Hias Participates in Washington Talk on Settlement of Cuban Refugees

The U. S. Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare, John W. Gardner and his top staff met with leaders of the National Catholic Welfare Conference, Church World Service, United Hias Service and the International Rescue Committee–representing Catholic, Protestant, Jewish and nonsectarian agencies–with regard to the resettlement of recently arrived Cuban refugees and those expected to come to this country as a result of the agreement between the United States and Cuban Governments.

The Secretary stressed the necessity for cooperating on a national basis, so that as many Cuban refugees as possible may be resettled in communities throughout the country.
