Original summary excerpt: The Phoenix hearing held on March 6 by Senator Chandler, chairman of the Senate subcommittee investigating the WRA, received little press attention outside of Arizona. Senator Chandler's public declaration, "There is no question in my mind but that thousands of these fellows were armed and prepared to help Japanese troops invade the West Coast right after Pearl Harbor..." was published in only one paper, the Arizona Republic. According to newspaper accounts, testimony at the hearing was unanimously agreed that Arizona could not assimilate more than a few hundred Japanese, but witnesses differed as to the best method of handling the problem.

March 16, 1943
