drafts designated to meet Christian requirements and Jew-

This plan has the approval of our State Department and
that of each of the foreign countries concerned.
The European Governments will hold all contents of Am-
erican Relief Warehouses free from requisition and will as-
sist in transportation of all foods. Should any profit accrue
from the operations, it will be turned over to .the Children's
Fund. Those desiring to contribute to the General Relief of
any of the countries namted without designating any individ--

ual may purchase a draft and we will forward it to the Re-
lief Administration.
This is a constructive relief measure without the uneco-

out any assurance that they will ever reach their destination.
