htitlf of the department of labor, Commissioner-General
of Immigration Cam
inetti today asked the members of the -house
Immigration committee to con
fine Asiatic exclusion legislation to
Hindus. He carefully avoided using the
word "Japanese."
"The ' department of laibor,'' said
Caminottl, "so far has considered the

relates to Hindus and from an economio
but not a radical viewpoint. Their ex

this legislation be confined to Hindus
only." '
