End comment states: "These communications are of the type that ordinarily are considered privileged and inadmissible as against public interests. The correspondents so frequently refer to operational plans and other documents, that to admit this will require considerable rebuttal evidence in explanation, all of which will have little, if any, probative value as to the real issues of hte case. it seems, therefore, that hte Defense should confine such proof to items that they consider aggressive or unfriendly, or hostile to Japan, and that the minor defense preparations during the time war was going on in Europe should have no part of this case."
