T CONGRESS Y4 Why not have an investigatien? Why not seize this God-sent opportunity? I * Why not give to the American people--the millions on millions of ruthlessly robbed relief and restitution? What does it matter, what can it matter, why should it matter who 'eaked," who "benefted," who should be punished? The damage has been done.
