Morley said, were "just as destructive as faombmg and eventually cause as much loss of They were being used as a weapon by "unions as selfish as any corporation could ever have been and in many cases a good deal more so."

All people had to adopt a new philosophy, realizing the im- portance of common humanity.

Only one witness. Dr. Jose GiraL premier of the exiled Spanish Republican government, was heard directly.
