(Jewish Telegraphic Restrictions)

The plight of Russian Jewish refugees in Germany, their difficulty in gaining a livelihood in view of the handicaps and restrictions imposed upon them, were presented to the International Labor Office of the League of Nations by a delegation representing the Federation of Russian Jews in Germany.

The delegation consisting of Dr. J. Teitel and Dr. Goldenweiser called on the director of the International Labor Officer, Mr. Albert Thomas, and the Chief of the Refugees Department, Mr. Johnson.

Dr. Teitel and Dr. Goldenweiser submitted a memorandum describing the condition of the Russian Jewish refugees. It was stated that the International Labor Office promised a subsidy out of the Nansen fund for the purpose of extending productive credit to the refugees and to take steps with the German government with a view toward the abolition of the restrictions.
