DESCRIPTION
Announcement of Revision of Forms DSS Form 304A and WRA Form 126 (Re: Question 28)

Revision of Question 28 for males, and aliens. Printed in English and Japanese.

ANNOUNCEMENT
Word has been received from Washington as follows:
1. ALL CITIZENS WILL ANSWER QUESTION 28 AS IT IS NOW PRINTED ON DSS FORM 304a AND ON WRA FORM 126, REVISED. This means that male citizens, all of whom are required to execute DSS Form 304a, will answer the following question:
"28. Will you swear unqualified allegiance to the United States of America and faithfully defend the United States from any or all attack by foreign or domestic forces, and forswear any form of allegiance or obedience to the Japanese government, power, or organization?"

Female citizens who are required to execute WRA Form 126, Revised, will answer Question 28 as printed there.

2. ALIENS WILL NOT BE REQUIRED TO ANSWER QUESTION 28 AS NOW WRITTEN; INSTEAD, THEY WILL ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTION:
Are you sympathetic to the United States of America and do you agree faithfully to defend the United States from any or all attack by foreign or domestic forces?

In order to accomplish this purpose, the interviewer, when questioning an alien, should strike out certain words from Question 28 and insert others as follows:
"28. Are you sympathetic to the United States of America and do you agree faithfully to defend the United States from any or all attack by foreign or domestic forces?"

The Japanese interpretation of Question 28 as revised for answer by aliens is as follows...
