Information was obtained in this industry for 6,778 foreign born male employees, of which number 44.3 per cent are fully naturalized and an additional 19.1 per cent have secured first papers.

Among those races manifesting an interest in American citizenship it will be noted that a slightly larger proportion of Irish than Germans, Swedes, Canadians, other than French, English, Danes, or Scotch, a considerably larger proportion than of Bohemians and Moravians, Norwegians, or Russian Hebrews, and a very much larger proportion than is shown by any of the other races, are fully naturalized, the Slovaks reporting the smallest proportion, or 10.6 per cent. As regards these same races, having secured first papers only, it will be seen that the Croatians, with 46.4 per cent, show a considerably larger proportion than the Norwegians, Russian Hebrews, Magyars, Danes, or Slovenians, and a much larger proportion than is shown by any of the other races, the Scotch reporting the smallest proportion, or 10.5 per cent.
