or Ferguson (R-Mich) suggested to-

inquiry into the Pearl Harbor attack.
Ferguson proposed such an inquiry
by a five-member special Senate com-
mittee in a resolution drafted for in-

It calls for 'a full and complete"
investigation into the sneak Japa-

Desirable To Learn Enemy's
Character,' Says Dr. Huntley

Stevens Urges
IRA To Fight

"Since we've got to live in the
same world with seventy million
Japanese after the war, it would be
well for us to learn their national
traits now," Dr. Frank Huntley, of
the Civilian Affairs Training School,
declared in an address Sunday at the
International Center.
"Our boys in Saipan certainly
don't think the Japanese are
quaint," Dr. Huntley said, denying
. the truth of the American notion
that Orientals spend all their time
viewing cherry orchards and mak-
ing cute little dolls.
Neither are the Japanese imitators
or lacking in inventive genius any
more than the other peoples of the
world, according to Dr. Huntley.
"The Japanese can build any ma-
chine they wish from the tiniest
motor to the largest turbine .
There is hardly a thing the Japanese
have taken from other countries
which they haven't improved on,"
he said.
Dr. Huntley's six years in Japan
belie the superstition that all Jap-
anese are treacherous, he said.
Never in that six years of leaving
his children alone with Japanese

CHICAGO, Nov. 19.-)-Ameri-
can Jewish leaders called today for
the opening of Palestine in 1945 to
all Jewish war refugees, Dr. James
G. Heller asserting that "every dic-
tate of honor, of humanity, of pity,
must compel the opening."
Assembled here for the national
conference for Palestine, some 700
delegates heard Dr. Heller of New'
Orleans, chairman of the United Pal-
estine Appeal, and other speakers
declare that the British white paper
policy restricting Jewish immigration
must be abandoned.
30 Million Needed
Dr. Heller, in an address at the
opening of the meeting yesterday
said Jews must provide $30,000,000 in
1945 to speed the building of the I
Jewish Commonwealth in Palestine
and make possible immigration of
1,000,000 uprooted from the Euro-'
pean continent following the end of
the war with Germany.
"Palestine must be permitted to
house millions, yet to come, millions
who must be enabled to escape from
Europe," Dr. Heller declared.
He said the mandatory adminis-
tration of Palestine, "yielding to the
pressure" of the Jewish agency, had
released the last 10,300 visas which
remained, under the white paper,
"visas which it had held back under
various pretexts."
Test of White Paper
"The whole policy of the White
Paper will now come to its time of
testing, and there is a concensus that
it will have to be abandoned, that
every dictate of honor, of humanity;
of pity, must compel the opening of
,the portals of Eretz Israel to the,
thousands who will come in.
"This coming year we must organ-
ize as never before. We must come

Seeks Workers

to American Jews with the message
that this year is the turning point,
the year of victory and of liberation."
Dr. Nahum Goldmann, member of
the executive committee of the Jew-
ish Agency for Palestine, who arrived
last week from Palestine, said that
Palestine's Jewry has "reached a
stage, economically, socially, politi-
cally and morally where it regards
itself as an autonomous state, able
to run its own affairs."
Calling for world recognition of
Palestine as a Jewish Common-
wealth, he said:; "Hitler has proved
the Jews need it and Palestine Jewry
has proved we can do it."
Solid Post-War
Front Urged
AFL Denounces CIO,
Pesses Labor Unity
The AFL, deploring the widening
split with the CIO, beckoned anew
today to its one-time committee to
come back and present a solid labor
front for the postwar world.
The American Federation of La-
bor's leadership, represented by the
executive council, made its annual
report for the 64th annual conven-
tion and highlighted it with a bitter
denunciation of the CIO and an ex-
pession of hope the gap between
the two unions might be erased.
Labor Unity Urged
The Congress of Industrial Or-
ganizations, formed as the commit-
'tee for Industrial Organization of the
AFL in 1935; by John L. Lewis, is
starting its convention simultaneous-
ly in Chicago tomorrow but Presi-
dent Philip Murray made no refer-
ence in his annual report to any pos-
sible re-affiliation. He did urge
labor unity, however.
The council devoted considerable
attention to postwar problems, do-
mestic and international. Its princi-
pal proposal was for congressional
creation of an office of war mobiliza-
tion and adjustment, with an econ-
omic commission made up of workers,
employers and farmers. The com-
nssion would make policies to guide
war mobilization, reconversion, and
reconstruction and reemployment.
Post War Plahs
The plan allowed for continuation
of pricescontrol and rationing "until
scarcities disappear."
