The War Department will name a flying fortress “The Jewish National Workers’ Alliance,” in appreciation of the purchase of $400,000 worth of War Bonds by members of the Alliance during the Third War Loan Drive, it was announced today.

The members of the Alliance are currently concluding a campaign to purchase $2,000,000 worth of War Bonds. This sum will be used to construct a Liberty Ship bearing the name of Dr. Nachman Syrkin, the famous Jewish scholar and spiritual leader of Labor Zionism.
