A series of responses to a letter written by Congressman Charles F. Ayer to John W. McCormack regarding the "Jap menace" in Hawaii. Urges the evacuation of all Japanese from Hawaii to the mainland to protect from invasion. McCormack forwards this letter to Henry L. Stimson. Thos. T. Handy, assistant chief of staff, forwards the McCormack letter to Stimson with a memo describing the government's plan of action. Personal memo to McCormack from Stimson informs that the Japanese are crucial to the economy in Hawaii, and removing them would freeze the shipping industry.
