Memorandum by the Under Secretary of State ( Welles ) to the Legal Adviser ( Hackworth )
Mr. Hackworth: Dr. Fenwick8 left with me this memorandum this morning.
I think it is highly desirable that the Committee of which he is a member extend the scope of its functions in every appropriate way during these critical times. My judgment is that the points made in the memorandum are satisfactory. Will you let me have your reaction?
