“Continuance of the major aspects of the National Refugee Service’s peace-time program and the successful fulfillment by the agency of its new war-imposed tasks” are the chief perspectives of the NRS for the coming year, it was stated today by William Rosenwald, president of the organization.

“Since war creates grave and greatly increased responsibilities for the National Refugee Service, our patriotic desire to aid our nation dictates that we continue to make possible through NRS the complete incorporation of the refugee newcomer into American life,” Mr. Rosenwald said. Some of the major problems NRS will have to cope with, Mr. Rosenwald pointed out, are a rising relief problem an increase in employment and retraining activity, the speeding-up of the work of providing Americanization opportunities and arrangements for English instruction to loyal aliens, and making available the special abilities of emigre physicians and other professionals with skills useful to national defense.
