An additional million dollars worth of food and other supplies will be purchased by the Joint Distribution Committee and rushed to Poland for the emergency relief of tens of thousands of Polish Jews now returning to that country from the Soviet Union, where they found haven during the war, it was announced today by Edward M.M. Warburg, chairman of the Committee.

Mr. Warburg revealed that in response to a call for help from the present surviving Jewish community of Poland, the J.D.C. voted a special emergency appropriation of $1,000,000 last week and began arrangements for the purchase of the supplies. The emergency grant brought to $3,100,000 the total aid appropriated this year for Jews in Poland by the J.D.C.
