FIUDAV, FEBHUAitY 7, 1947 WRA is Critical Of DeWitt Order Agency Which Moved Japs Across Country Says Idea 'Was Wrong' i, u ? Y IIEM!N K MOKBKKG United I'rcss staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, Feb. 8. — The mass wartime cvacunllon or 110.000 Japanese Americans from Ih'c West Const lo Arkansas and other slates was entirely unjustified act Jklnt established a pattern for "un- "emocrntle behavior in the eyes of freedom-loving peoples.'' Tliat Is the conclusion of the War nelocalioii Authority in its final report op the evacuation pro- Bra m which it W n s charged with carrying out. Tlie report was highly critical of U. Gen. John L. DeWItt, who headed the Wartime Western Defense Command and «-ho recommended the evacuation of the Japanese-Americans. It nairt there "is a Rieat deal of evidence" thai DeWitl wss "by no means free of racial feelings in ordering the evacuation and that he held them long after it had become nn accomplished fact," WRA said DcWill's action was condoned by the United 'States in general because there exists in this country "a marked xenophobic tendency" — a tendency to hale and fear foreigners. Not only were thn Army's reasons for the evacuation "highly arguable or wholly unfounded", the report snld. but the Japanese -a'erc held in relocation camps longer Ilion necessary by any security standards. The report was written under the direction of Dillion S. Mycr. direc- (or of WRA until it w a s abolished m 1946. DeWitt recommended ttie evacuation of West coast Japanese to j&pbc secretary of war on Feb. 14, ^1042. president Roosevelt subsequently approved DcWill's sugpcs- tion. WRA said it recognized that DeWitt was under "heavy responsibility ' for the protection 'of the West Coast, and that feeling was j-un- »»»g high at the time in the areas where u, c jnpaneso were coni« n- trated because of the recent attack on Pearl Harbor. •Nevertheless, the report said. WRA does not believe Ihnt a mass evacuation was ever justified, am! it feels most strongly fliat the exclusion orders remained in effect for months and perhaps for years after there was any real justification- for their continuance." _BLYTHEViLLE (ARK.)
