This chapter describes the Washington visit of F. B. (Frank) Leon Guerrero, member of the Guam Congress. In August 1948, Frank paid an impromptu visit to Maurice J. Tobin, U.S. Secretary of Labor and member of the Hopkins Committee. Among other things, Tobin told Frank that he was bound by the Hopkins Committee decisions not to speak out for civilian administration and other rights when he testified before Congress. He also personally would have gone further than the Hopkins Committee Report, he said. He also wanted Frank to talk with Navy Under Secretary W. John Kenney, whom he believed to be of the same opinion. Then and there, Tobin arranged a meeting for the three of them at the Pentagon for August 26. Returning to the office of the Institute of Ethnic Affairs after his meeting at the Pentagon, Frank reported that Kenney strongly supported the policy determined by the four Secretaries last year. Kenney and Tobin repeatedly assured him that officials in the top brackets are determined to carry out this policy.
