Jewish Council Launches Nationwide Survey of Aliens for the Defense Program

As a result of many inquiries from aliens who are eager to participate in the defense of the United States, the National Council of Jewish Women today announced the launching of a nationwide survey of the skills, aptitudes and time which alien residents of the United States are able to contribute to the defense program.

Each of the 203 Council sections throughout the United States has been asked to interview the foreign-born residents of its community in an effort to compile a national inventory of the volunteer resources offered by our alien population. Among the services which non-citizens may be eligible to offer are: blood donations, practical nursing, canteen work, knitting, sewing, first aid teaching, medical aid, leadership of recreational projects and dietetics.
