See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Pro-Nazi elements in Germany are strongly opposed to paying the claims of Jews now being negotiated at The Hague, Adolph Held, president of the Jewish Labor Committee and member of the praesidium of the Conference on Jewish Claims Against Germany, declared here today following his return from Europe where he participated in the preparations for the German-Jewish negotiations.

“The Socialist representatives in the German Parliament have pledged their support to the proposals of the negotiators,” Mr. Held said. He predicted that “the month of May should see the final decisions on the amounts demanded from Germany by Israel and the Jewish groups from other countries, as well as the rate and manner of payment.”
