Secretary of the Navy Frank Knox last night warned the leaders of the Axis that their crimes against the peoples of the world will not go unpunished. Speaking at the sixth annual “Good Will” dinner of the Massachusetts Conference of Christians and Jews, Sec. Knox stated that “there will be strict accountability for the bloody crimes against charity and humanity which is the basis of every great religion.” He also voiced a plea for unity which will be free of all religious intolerance.
