Adjourning after a public hear- ing of less than one hour this morning, the tribunal rendered no decision on prosecution requests that the trial be poslponed beyond Movember 20 and that Alfricd Krupp heir to the Krupp muni- tions empire, be indicted as a war criminal in place of his father. The decision to try Bormann, Hitler's deputy and closest hench- man during the tinal hours of Nazi Germany, was made upon recom- mendation of Sir David MaxwcII- Fyfc, deputy to the British prosecu- tor. The British report said there was doubt whether he was dead. f Gen. J. T. Nikitchcnko, the So- viet judge, appeared on the bench for the first time after Hying here from Moscow. It was believed thai his presence probably would has- ten the tribunal's decision regard- ing Krupp but there was no indi- cation when it might be announc- ed. Since no postponement action has been taken yet, prosecution and defense faced a feverish week-end in preparation for the opening session of the trial Tues- day. It was learned that Oic four prosecutors were advised by the tribunal lo hold themselves in readiness in Ihc event an after- noon hearing was called. the international' military tribunal refused today to ndict Alfricd Knipp, 3S. proposed j >y U- S. Prosecutor Jackson as a substitute for Guslav Krupp von JohJcn und Halbach. and ordered the trial of olhcr Nazis lo start on schedule November 30.

"t of cffam." Of. oes not mew wifl jiut on pan tis Washington, Nov. 17 miral T. B. Inglis testified today that the Navy might have discov- ered the Japanese task force at- tacking Pearl Harbor if it had used its long-range patrol planes. Under questioning by Senator Brewster Inglia told Senate-House Inquiry Committee that 69 PBY's. capable of flying a .triangular course with an 800 mile radius, were available for patrol work in December. 1941. Previous Army and Navy inves- tigations have indicated that no long distance reconnaissance was being flown on the day of the at- tack. The Navy was charged with this responsibility under agree- ments made in the joint defense plan. Brewster asked if it would have 3cen possible, with the equipment available, to have discovered the Japanese task force if an 800-mile patrol had been flown in the areas not covered by American ship- ping. "My answer is with this Admiral Inglis re- plied. "I don'.t think the areas covered by our own shipping could be counted upon. The patrol would have. had to cover the full 360 degrees." The witness expressed the opin- ion that the 69 PBY's on hand sufficient to'hiake'any such full patrol. Brewster contended that It would not have been necessary :tt> patro! the areas in which there was American shipping, since the Japanese obviously would avoid such sectors. At this point William D. Mil- chell. committee counsel, told Brewster that a full report on he reconnaissance situation would be available to the committee la- r. The Pearl Harbor Investigating Committee turned today to ques- ioning whether any act of United States officials touched off the war vith Japan. Republican members told news, men they would challenge a sum- mary of Japan's side of the story vhich Rear Admiral T. B. Inglis, aval intelligence officer, expected o lay before the committee in its bird day of hearings. Hull's Part Studied Senator Brewster who as had the summary in his pos- ession since Thursday, expressed 10 opinion to reporters that the report was designed to show for- icr Secretary of State Hull "was ot responsible for the war." Brewster said the summary un- crtakcs .to prove that the Jap- ncsc decision to attack Pear! arbor was made long before lull's negotiations with Nippon- sc "peace" envoys readied their Umax with the presentation of nal American proposals on No- ember 25, 1911. "In this the Maine scna- or declared, "the report is being used to say that Mr. Hull was not csponsible for the start of the "ar. "I am a friend of Mr. Hull, but lat certainly is a partisan con- lusion for the Navy lo make. The ommittce, not the Navy ought to make the conclusion." Kcp. Kcefc (R-Wis) insisted hat orders to execute the Japa- esc plan for attack came only ftcr Hull's proposals -were handed o the envoys here. Rep. Gcarhart (R-Calif) de- larcd his belief that the Japanese "doing everything jn their power to reach agreement" with United States, adding that regarded Hull's proposals as an ultimatum.
