Short told the Pearl Harbor investigating committee his last conference with navy commanders at Hawaii took place on Dec. 3, 1941 — four days before the attack. He said he believed Adm. Husband E. Kimmel, commander of the Pacific fleet based in Pearl Harbor, passed along to him "all information which he considered important." .Hep. John W. Murphy, D., Pa., brought out, however, that Short id not see messages Kimmel re- eived from Washington Dec. 3, 4, and 6 informing him that Japan lad ordered destruction of. coc machines at various diplomat josts and authorizing the navy .estroy conidential papers at o ying islands such as Guam.
