10 THE SUN, BALTIMORE. SUNDAY' MORNING. 1TULY 31. 193S REFUGEE PARLEY ' WILL BE RESUMED Evian Conference To Meet In London Early In . August . Democracies Sympathize With Unwanted Jews, But Fail To Solve Problem 7 Jf. .1. 3. SABGIXT (Special Dispatch to The Sun London, July 30 If it has done nothing else, the conference on refugees from Germany and Austria, which was convened at Evian by the United States and which is to meet again in London early in August, has once gain shown the sympathy for the oppressed which is shared by the three great democracies of the world, the United States, Great Britain and France. . v Each of these countries placed on record its desire to come to the aid of those to whom, as the Zionists expressed it, the world appeared to consist of countries where Jews cannot live and countries which Jews cannot enter. In casting around for possible new homes for those unhappy people who can no longer exist in Germany and Austria, the conference first considered the more sparsely populated regions of the world as being able perhaps to provide new homes for an afflicted race. Australia Prefers British What was the result? Australia, where a whole continent is only now supporting little more than two-thirds of the population of New York, while expressing its complete agreement with the idea underlying the conference, declared that it wanted to draw its manpower from the source from which most of its citizens had sprung, that is to say Great Britain. Canada dwelt on its unemployment problems and held put little hope that many refugees could be absorbed, while Brazil, another country of vast mpty spaces, made it clear that the great bulk of immigrants must be agricultural workers or people connected with some industry closely related to agriculture. One Of Major Tragedies It is this problem of finding new homes for people not wanted in the lands of their birth which is one of the major tragedies of present-day international life. We have seen it in the case of the Assyrian Christians, who dwelt in the valleys of the Euphrates and the Tigris, and were therefore Turkish subjects at the beginning of the great war. They threw in ' their lot with the Allies and fought stoutly against their Turkish masters, but, when the war came to an end and the Kingdom of Iraq was set up where Mesopotamia had once been, these Christians were no longer wanted by the Arab Government of Baghdad, and they are now wandering homeless. Much Sympathy, Little Else The Evian conference made it clear that the democratic countries of the world, approached the refugee problem with much sympathy and good will, but with little else. No concrete proposal for moving these vast numbers of people to happier surroundings was put forward. As usual with international conferences, it was agreed to postpone decision until another conference had sat, and the meeting in London will open with a troubled inheritance. One question which cannot be Ignored is, assuming that some sort of arrangement is made for removing refugees from Germany and Austria, will the matter end there? Already demands are being made that the confer ence should consider the position of Jewish refugees from other European countries. Where can those countries which do not put anti-Semitism In the forefront of their policy And room for all these people without gravely injuring their own citizens, who are finding the fight for life hard enough as it is? Cross Frontiers Destitute Finally, the condition in which German refueees are allowed to emerge Ifrom their country adds immensely to the difficulty of finding new homes for them. Germany has proclaimed her readiness to allow the Jews to leave the country, but she is also seeing to it that they cross the frontiers destitute. Germany's policy of confiscation makes the work of rescue next to impossible. If governments can first strip and then turn out beyond their frontiers immense numbers of undesired citizens, the rest of the world is confronted with a puzzle which no meeting of humanitarians can solve. It if not yet too late to hope that some change of policy may occur in Berlin, but it is also clear that the London conference will open in conditions which might discourage the most optimistic and charitable hearts."

Some company executives said a rough, but not disastrous, landing could have put her radio apparatus out of commission. A telephone co'mpany employe on Lahuy Island, west of Catanduanes Hand, which is approximately 230 miles east by south from here, said he heard a plane flying above clouds three hours after the clipper's last re- port. Airways officials said the island is directly on the Guam-Manila route and is among the first islands of the Philippine archipelago sighted on the westward flight from Guam.

Cowan Aboard Cruiser Houston, in Galapagos Archipelago, July 30 (Rr-Led personally by President Roosevelt, a party of fifty officers and men from the cruiser Houston searched San Salvador Island fruitlessly today for the grave of Lieut John S. Cowan, of the United States frigate Essex, buried on the island in 1813. . One hundred and twenty-five years of erosion by wind and, water evidently had era.sed all evidence of the grave. Lieutenant Cowan, aged 21, believed killed in a pistol duel with another member of the Essex's company, was buried by Admiral David Porter, then commander of the frigate. President Roosevelt had hoped to be able to have the remains of Cowan removed to the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis. Given 30 To 40 Years For Killing Ranch Owner Prescott (Ariz.)
