PREVENTION OF WAR
The opinion that wars should have been stopped at the, peace tables after the last war and even at Munich was expressed by Harold Watts Alfred McCarthy, waterside worker (Mr. Finlay), who applied to the No. 1 Revision Authority, Mr. A. H. Johnstone, K.C., yesterday afternoon, for his release .from a detention camp. .. Cross-examined, applicant said he had no affiliations other than unionism. Provided they were equally unionist , and internationalist, he would allow large numbers of Japanese and Chinese to enter the Dominion. He still subscribed to the views he expressed in a letter sent to the Armed Forces Appeal Board stating that fighting men of the country should stay at home to defend it. There were responsible Ministeng who refused service in the last war sending men away to do what they would not do years ago. Decision was reserved.
