J.) today endorsed Herbert Hoover's published opinion that the United States might have remained out of World War n, while Demo- cratic Congress members differed sharply with beliefs attributed the former Republican' President. The comment came in the wake of- an article in. the current Ameri- can magazine quoting Hoover as saylnp, "We never would have been attacked by the Japanese If we had not given them provocation." Hoover also was quoted as saying: "My theory is that if we had kept out of the immediate conflict, we could have put our sword, down on the table with our economic re- sources Intact and made u decent peace when the time for peace- making came." Democrats took opposite view- points. Representative Sabath (D.-H1.) said in a statement today, "it is in- deed strange" that Herbert Hoover should "repeat the same propaganda line which was followed by the Japanese-Nazi war was 'forced' on Japan and Ger- many." Sabath said: "I believe that the American people, and especially the veterans who fought the Nazis and the Japs, will resent In no uncertain way Herbert Hoover's unjustifiable and unwarranted calumnies, and will repudiate him and his party and all they stand Real Estate Unit Pleads Innocent to Antitrust Count Washington The National Association of Real Estate Boards and the Washington Real Estate Board pleaded Innocent today to a federal indictment charging viola- tion of the antitrust laws.
