SUBJECT: Abstracting of Foreign Periodicals (other than the daily press) 


1. Since completion of the study on the above subject, forwarded to you 
under date of 24 September 1947, a report prepared by ID, WDGS has been received 
relating to it. 

2. This report was mentioned in Tab D of the OCD study which stated that 
Col. R. F. Ennis, Chief, Intelligence Group, WDGS, had ordered a survey be con- 
ducted for the purpose of ascertaining those current foreign periodicals being 
received by the Intelligence Division Library, WDGS. 

3. The attached report of this study t>y ID, WDGS is composed of the fol- 
lowing sections: 

r 

a. M/A’s and major commands resubscriptions to periodicals to be for- 
warded ID, WDGS after present subscriptions expire. 

b. The periodicals the M/A’s and major commands are processing within 
their own offices. 

c. Those the M/A’s and major commands have been requested to subscribe 
to and to forward as new subscriptions to the Intelligence Division. 

4. The periodicals listed in the attached report include daily newspapers 
and some periodicals in the English language in addition to foreign language 
periodicals. Due to language difficulties and unfamiliarity with this type 
periodical, no attempt has been made in this office to segregate them. This 

was also true of certain of the lists contained in OCD's original study forwarded 
under date of 24 September 1947* 

5. The USSR is not included in the attached report inasmuch as the report 
from the H/A, Moscow has not yet been received. We are assured that OCD will be 
furnished this information when it is received. Copies will be forwarded 00 
immediately upon receipt.
