WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, Some Citizens Every Time German Get Excited They Hear Uy BRUCE CATTON Courier News Washington Correspondent WASthNQTON, Kept. 20. — A Washington resident called ilia Federal Bureau of tiivc-stlfation Ui<\ other day nmi implcml the fi-iiicn to have a gander at queer goings-on in (lie lint next door to I'is, in a rather tony downtown apartment building. k "llierc arc lights c» In that, flnl will) 3 o'clock and after, almost every night-," he announced. "Who- evcr's In there talks German all the lime. Must )>o a bunch of spies. You people ought to Icok into' St." 'Hie PBt sighed and went, forth to check up. In the end, it found—as it had anticipated—no cause for alarm. 'Hie Mat, II developed, was occupied by a gentleman of German blrlh who was very fond ol card games—penny ante, pinochle, and what-not. He had a number of like-minded cronies, also of German ancestry. Four or five nights a week they would come in and play cards, eat Hverwurst sandwiches, and maybe drink a little beer. SH-H-H, BEER PLOT IS EXPOSED They talked In German because that was the language they grew up with; but the most careful 'investigation failed to show that, any cf them were anything but good Americans or tint anything any more sinister than a little friendly card playing and beer drinking was hatched there. This is just, n sample of the sort of thing the' FBI is getting these days. As the nation's first line of defense against foreign espionage, it is getting a perfect flo:d of complaints from the citi/.enry. As a matter of duty, it runs each one down; as a matter of policy, it doesn't go arcund telling everyone what it learns. But a huge percentage of the complaints are pretty woozy. FBI is in good shape to fight any genuine spies that may appear. It new has a force of 800, soon lo be increased by 150.' In addition, it has what prac- tlcnlly amounts to n "G-Man Reserve Jporps," consisting of 'slightly, less than 500 men who' have •-llceir graduated from ;thfe- f thrceVmo'nth training courses which the 'bureau conducts. " ; . • , Practically all of these graduates are members of the police forces in different American cities. The FBI keeps in touch with them, keeps them informed about what is going on—and knows that in case cf need it has, in all of these different cities, regular police officers, trained in FBI methods and thoroughly sold on co-operation with the PBT, who can go into p"*'on if needed. SPY ROUTE FOR PERSONA!, GRUDGES The bureau checks oil complaints thoroughly, even if it is morally certain In advance that everything is okay. It is n trifle disturbed at (he number of people who seem to be willing to work off personal grudges by trying to turn in innocent people ns spy suspects, but it takes no chances. Right now it is keeping a watchful eye on all persons known to have overseas connections, and is bending every effort to prevent any recurrence of the sabotage cases of the last war. Incidentally, its cases don't often J. L. GUARD Optometrist Only Graduate Optometrist in Blythcvllle. Glasses Fitted Correctly I iniul In cowl — or Imven't sj f ftr , mij'liow.
