We do not agree, however, that the way to bring this about neccsdcr.tes any break with our allies, which, in our opinion, would result in the very danger which we are anxious to . avoid.

It will be remembered that some of our fliers were executed after the first aerial attack on Tokyo in April, 1942. With Tokyo and industrial Japan suffering more serious damage than ever, under the systematic bombing of Superfortresses, it seems probable that the Japanese will carry out their threat and execute American aviators when captured. ' , If this proves to be the policy of the 'Japanese Government, it will not be adequately met by warning the Japanese ers that this country will hold them re-' sponsible for such executions. Once it is definitely determined that our fliers are being executed in Japan, it will be proper for this country to consider reprisals, but, in doing so, we must bear in mind the thousands of Americans now held captive 1 library.
