Guam issue is defended

Washington (UP) –
A new Republican demand for “the truth about Pearl Harbor” was voiced by Rep. Frank B. Keefe (R-WI) yesterday in charging that the administration sought to evade the issue by blaming Congress for failure to fortify Guam.

Congress did not fail to fortify Guam because neither the President nor the Navy Department asked it to, he asserted in a speech on the House floor.
