The question of the men without a country, refugees in Poland and Roumania, came up for consideration at the meeting of the Advisory Committee for Refugees which was held here. On the proposal of Lucien Wolf, it was decided to ask the Refugee Section of the International Labor Office of the League of Nations and the International Labor Office itself to appoint a committee to investigate the question and to give effect to the resolution adopted on the question of the persons without citizenship and to put a stop to the present state of affairs by which seven years after the conclusion of the Minorities Treaties the provisions of the Minorities Treaties are not yet being observed, with the result that there are large numbers of people who are not recognized as citizens of any country.

The Conference of Private Associations for the Protection of Emigrants and Immigrants has appointed a committee on which Lucien Wolf and Mr. Aberson are members, to study the question of men without a country and inquire into the difficulties arising in regard to emigration matters because of the non-observance of the provisions of the Minorities Treaties on the part of certain States.
