' TUESDAY, APRIL 21, 1942 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK,), COURIER NEWS [LISTS REQUIREMENTS 'FIRST DOG OF LAND'' Local Draft Boards Prepare To Register Men In 4564 Age Group With local boards throughout the- state of Arkansas reporting all in readiness for the registration on April 27 of men between the a<res of 45 and 64 years, inclusive. Brig". Gen. E. L. Compare, .state director of Selective Service, today pointed out that there are only three main requirements for this registration. Director Compere summarized these major requirements thus: (1) Every male citizen and every male alien residing • in Arkansas, other than persons excepted by the Selective Training and Service Act of 1940, as amended, who had attained the 45th anniversary of the day of h;s birth on or before February 16. 1942, and has not attained the G5th anniversary of the day of his birth on or before April 27, 1942, is required to present himself for and submit to registration on April 27. 1942. At Designated Place (2) Registration should be made at a "designated registration place of the local board area in which the registrant has his permanent "home, or in which he may happen to be "between the hours of 7 and 9 p.m. on April 27. This registration place may be the office : of the local board having jurisdiction in the area, or other public place properly designated b> that local board. (3) Registrants must answer all • questions asked by the registrar .for notation on the registration card. It is important that the . registrant describe his place of residence in detail as well as give - full particulars as to the address ; at which he will be sure to receive ; mail or -other . communications. * ; Absentee. 1 Provisions \ Anyone who is unavoidably away from his home on April 27 may register at the registration place • most convenient on that day, the director said, but all registrants are urged to make every effort to register with their own local boards to . avoid possible confusion in the future. Any person who must register away from home also is warned to "carefully specify his.home address so that his reg r istration . card niay be forwarded promptly to his own local board. Special registrars also will be provided to register men who cannot ^appear at a designated place because of illness or other incapacity, the director stated, but it is incumbent upon these men to advise a registrar in their local board, area of their inability to at a registration'"place." No Transient Address A registrant who has more than one place of residence may choose which one he wants recorded as his place of residence, but no transient address may be recorded. Director Compere declared, and a registrant who lives on an ,RFD route which goes through ' two states is required to indicate the location of his residence, rather than his mailing address. After the registrant has answered all questions and signed his name to the registration card, he will be given a registration certificate signed by the registrar. This certificate must be in the personal possession of the registrant at all times. Failure to possess this certificate, or to show it to authorized persons constitutes a violation of Selective Service Regulations and is considered prima facie evidence of failure to register. Director Compere pointed out that those who register on April 27 are not liable for military service under the Selective Training and Service Act of 1940 as amend- HORIZONTAL I Pictured dog's name. 6 It is a -~-.. 12 Lariat. 14 Weird. 16 Kitchen police .(abbr.). 18 Opposite (prefix). 19 First -man. 20 Symbol for ruthenium. 21 Aetatis (abbr.). 23 Burnt sugar, 24 Peruvian silver coin, 2 5.

One permanent relocation center has been selected, an Indian reservation in New Mexico. Others are being considered, but one problem here Is that no state wants colonies. But Uu« luckless Japs have to go somewhere, and ,once on these permenant reservations the problems multiply. Shall they be paid? if so, what? Should it be more than the soldiers' wage? Shall they be put to developing areas which will be theirs after The next meeting will be at the church Wednesday afternoon, 2 oVhx-k. Home Demonstration Notes Havt» All Day JVU'Clintr.

Yarbro News today the government has r?o evidence of any actual sabotage from the Japanese-American element ol the population. Espionage, yes. The Japs did plenty ol spying. But no sabotage. THE ARMY STEPS IN There remained the danger that any one of the more than 100,000 Japs still at large might commit sabotage, however, so at this I point the Army took over. Even ' the 6000 young men of Japanese extraction who were in the U. S. military service had to be demo! bilized into the reserves. The 5000 suspicious characters put into concentration camps included most of the leading citizens, the exporters, the big merchants and hotel-keepers.

All these Japanese will be .moved by .the end of May—not to their final wartime abodes, but out of the strategic areas into temporary reception centers. That doesn't solve the problem." In the wake of this mass migration are whirlpools and eddies But the mass of Japanese left included the poorer elements, the fruit and vegetable growers and vendors, ,the fishermen,, the people who took in each others' washing.

They have recognized they're on the spot and they have moved out of their former homes without mak- ng any fuss or starting any lawsuits. But without getting soft or sentimental about these Jap- Americans, they are unquestionably taking pretty much of a beating and ths potentialities for claims against the government out of. real or imaginary damages to their persons and property can be rather sizeable.

There is no provision yet for safeguarding the property interests of these U. S. citizens of Jap extraction, as the Alien Property Custodianship takes care of non- nsidenis only. Consequently the Jap-Americans' cars, houses, furniture and farms are now threat- end with serious depreciation or destruction, laying the basis for many claims against the government later.
