Recognition of International
Law Must Precede Any
BRUSSELS. Oct. ?.?The Internatlonal
Commission for the Relief of
Russia has begun its sessions here.
At the outset the delegates from
Great Britain and France made the
announcement that their govern*
ments would not agree to the extension
of credits to Russia so long
& the Soviet government refused to
recognize the principles of international
law?presumably referring to
Russian external debts.
The conference decided upon the
immediate dispatch of foodstuffs to
the impoverished regions, but to
postpone giving economic aid until
sn official investigation of all conditions
in Russia had been made
Walter Lyman Brown, American
delegate to the commission, explained
the Hoover system of relief
under which the Americans retain
complete control over the supplies
they are furnishing.-The commission
probably will adopt this system
rather than the plan of Dr. Pridtjof
Vansen. which calls for a mixed administration,
which would include
members of the Soviet government
on the controlling board.
