Secretary of the a Knox denied it and Admiral Kimmel him a a of denied it. Now eight months later. Senator Homer Ferguson. Of Michigan has Mada Public a letter he has received from Admiral Kimmel confirming what was denied last october namely the Kimmel trial at the earliest practicable Date. It so happens that this writer saw copy of Admiral Kim melts draft letter to Secretary Knox october so there was absolutely no question about his proposed plan. Also the Admiral had discus cd the matter with one of the Best Navy lawyers in the country. Col. Harry Leonard retired. Scrappy Marine corps to la St an Arm in the Bojker rebellion and was carried almost lifeless from the Battefeld by the late gen. Smedly Bulter then r lieutenant. Later Leonard had occasion to repay Bulter when the latter was ordered court Martiale by her Bert Hoover for a speech in which he Allied that Mussolino had run run Over a child and not even bothered to Stop. Col. Leonard handled gen. Bult cry Scase so skilfully that the court martial was dropped like a hot potato be fore it even got started. Last autumn. Col. Leonard began work on Admiral Kim Mel a defense causing the Navy judge advocate general Tommy Gatch to remark privately a a we re for a Tough but after the publication of the oct. 11 Mery go round terrific pressure was brought on Kimmel by Navy friends to withdraw his demand for an Early court martial which he did. The fact the Admiral Vav As employed by a firm of consulting engineers working on War orders and the fact that his superiors wore do pendent on the Navy for contracts May have had something to do with his about fact. Not15 a last october Kimmel made the Point that Pearl Harbor witnesses might die that one wan dead already that with the lapse of time Peoples memories be Ca tii obscure and that while hol and Confidence in the fairness of Secretary Knox he was not Sun of any Secretary of the Navy who might follow Knox. Therefore hooked for immediate to the records of the Navy department to prepare his Case and Eaid a i can no longer Bear the obloquy alone without trial which i herewith Hannegan and Farley Bob Hannegan chairman of the democratic National committee Isnit too Happy about his Friend and fellow irishman Jim Farley sex Boss of the same committee.
