W.n.r.s. President Outlines Program for Post-war Aid to Jewish Immigrants

A program of aid to refugee immigrants now and later the war was outlined here today by Charles A. Riegelman, newly elected president of the National Refugee Service, in a statement issued to the press. Major points in the program are:

1. Consultation and planning with other interested groups, on a broad educational program built around the value of immigration.

2. A scientific study, also in collaboration with other agencies, of the adjustment of refugees in communities throughout the country in the past decade, intended to provide information and guidance for future work on behalf of refugees.

3. Participation, in cooperation with governmental agencies and private organizations, notably the Joint Distribution Committee, in activities for location of refugees overseas sought by their families here, and of relatives in the United States brought by refugees abroad, with a view to eventual reunion.
