HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Ready for the War Hundreds of Aliens Are Rounded Up Quickly " IBy JACK STINNETT WASHINGTON—In recent weeks you have heard much about various 1 divisions of government that were not ready for this war, and in weeks to come you are going to hear about more.

Terms sirable or questionable aliens were behind bars, confined to hotel rooms under guard, or under orders to remain in their homes with 24-hour patrols on duty to see that they obeyed those orders. Within n week; more than 3,000 Japanese, German, Italian and other non- citizens under suspicion ns possible fifth columnists had been interned without arousing more than occasional scattered squawks from nearly 5,000,000 aliens who have been living within our borders without taking out even first citizenship papers. Behind all this is more than a year- old story. It goes back to the days when Supreme Court Justice Robert L. Jackson was attorney general, but it's a story that doesn't belong to any one man. The present Attorney General, Francis Biddle, was under the guns when the war broke out, and FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover was on deck long before Jackson. For nearly 11 months ,the FBI and its parent Department of Justice have been wrestling those files of 5,000,000 aliens plus a few thousand more from the citizenship list that had a question mark on the line that should nave noted "good intentions." Out of this formless mass, about two months ago, began to come dossiers that had some meaning. The FBI worked out its plan. Attorney eneral Biddle approved. Before the last words were written on the initial story of the blasting of Pearl Harbor, Biddle was signing warrants for detension and the FBI, with the aid of police, was making wholesale arrests from New York to San Francisco. This doesn't mean that every fifth columnist, spy, or saboteur in the United States has been arrested—not by a long shot. It doesn't mea nthat every one held as a suspicious alien is dangerous to the United States. Hundreds of them will be released. Many of them may prove A-l loyalty before this war is over. But in neither case should that detract from the job that already has been done. The job ahead may be comparatively simple as a result of it. When some one, someday, comes to write the story of the handling of aliens in this country in World War II, th etale will be packed with some of the most interesting sidelights in the whole picture. For example, although our Italian aliens add up to far more than those . from any other major nation (more than l'/i times as many as any other country under the domination of Hitler), the number of 'suspicious" Italians taken into custody was so small it was hardly worth noting, when compared to the 700,000 Italian aliens on the non-citizenship lists Then, too, there is the problem for the FBI of keeping Italians and Germans apart in concentration camps. To put them together is to invite camp free-for-alls that wouldn't end this side of bloodshed if guards didn't interfere. At the big camp at Missoula, Mont., not long ago, one of the Italians was being sent home under an expatriation agreement. His Italian buddies gave him a big farewell party. The camp cook, an Italian, baked a huge cake. On its crowning layer were two cross colored 'sugar flags. One was the flag of Italy; the other, the Stars and Stripes. No Tires? No Cars ?

Society what's left of their cars. If five men all go to town from one neighborhood, each man's car can be made to last five times as long if they take turns with an impromptu "bus service" for all. Some 12,000,000 Americans are believed to live in places which offer no other means of transport to their work than their own cars. Making their present cars last three or four limes as long by "clubbing up" seems their only "out." Within a few years it is estimated that 35 per cent of existing cars will be driven off the road by rubber shortage. There arc some 27,000,000 passenger automobiles now in use, and 650,000 new ones built and awaiting sale. The- tires now on those cars are the greatest rubber stock pile in the world. It must be made to last until new sources of rubber, natural and synthetic, can be cultivated. Less driving is the only answer. Horrors'.

Roar of Cities Drown Sirens Failure of Warnings Shows U. S. Must Take Lessons By MILTON BRONNER NBA Service Stuff Correspondent WASHINGTON-From New York, Washington and other big American cities comes news that tests of air raid sirens failed. This can be turned into success if the authorities will take lessons from London. Anyone coming to any big American city after service in blitzed England is apt to jump up and make ready to go to an air raid shelter when, sud- dcnily, down in the street they hear sirens hooting. But the siren is usually only on a fire engine, police car or an ambulance. At all hours of the day and night in the big American cities these screams arc heard. So long as this continues, it will be very difficult to devise a system of sirens that, to the average American, will mean an air raid alarm. They Still Use Gongs in London In London and other big British cities no fire department or police vehicles are equipped with sirens. Neither are amhbulances. They still use simple gongs. And the vehicles get through the crowded streets of London just as quickly as do their siren- howling counterparts in New York. Lesson No. 1: Ditch the sirens. Go back to gongs. But even if American authorities dispense with sirens on fire and police vehicles and ambulances, there still remains the every-minute noise of American cities—the swelling chorus of motor horns that would serve to drown out the sound of air raid sirens. Some years before the present war broke out, authorities in London handed down the ukase that the sounding of motor horns was entirely to cease. Motorists at once set up the kick that this would lead to endless accidents. The authorities stood pat. The expected increase in accidents did not materialize. Being forbidden to hoot their horns only served to make motorists more careful in their driving. A vast volume of noise ceased. Great London's immense traffic from then on only made a deep hum. What London did, American cities can do. In fact, the city of Memphis has already done it. Co, Lesson No. 2: Stop motor horn tooting. In London there are nearly 500 air raid sirens. Some are run by steam, some by compressed air, some by electricity. As there are no skyscrapers in London and few buildings over ten stories in height, the sound from the sirens is mainly projected horizontally, from points between 50 and 100 feet above the street. When the Royal Air Force sound detectors find enemy planes coming towards London, the news is flashed to a central authority there. A very thorough system has been set up whereby those in charge of sirens arc notified and warnings arc given all over town British Skipped Tricky Signals In Bfritain there was no attempt to have a long sound followed by a short one. The simplest method was adopted—a long wavering sound, up and down, up and down. The banchee cry of 500 sirens lias been entirely effective. Only a drugged or a drunken sleeper fails to hear the sirens when they let go at night. So, Lesson No. 3: Following the experience of London, there should be sirens placed all over town so that each does not have to cover a radius of more than a half mile. In the downtown skyscraper districts, sound should be sent both horizontally and vertically, the latter because of the tall buildings where the alarm must be heard. The long wavering up and down sound should be adopted. In Britain, the All Clear signal is a long steady sound on the sirne, with no wavering.
