A total of 5,151 German, Jap- ancse and Kalian nationals !iave been seized since the war'began December 7. Thus there are more .- than 4,000 cases still to be handled. Biddle has been reviewing per• sona'lly the recommendations o£ alien enemy hearing boards, listened to evidence submitted by the FBI: There are 93 such boards in the 86 federal judicial districts, each board comprising three to six citi?ens working on a voluntary basis. Disposition of the cases thus far included 145 Germans, 36 Italians and 34 Japanese released; 274 German, 45 Italians and 102 Japanese paroled; and 255 Germans. 37 Italians and 156 Japanese ordered interned. Six Germans, Italian Are Held At Dallas 'DALLAS, Feb. 25 (U.PJ—Author- ities held seven enemy aliens six Germans and an Italian — overnight after raids in the Dallas area that netted 87 sticks of dynamite, three bundles of fuses and 40 guns and pistols, among a truckload of contraband. U. S. Dist.^Atty. Clyde O. Eastus iaiu he WOuIcI pi'OScCUtc T.gorGUS- ly willful violation of alien regulations to surrender guns, short- wave radios, cameras and field glasses. He said that less than one per cent o£ the 1,050 enemy aliens in Dallas county had complied -with the recent order to surren- ' der their contraband. Weapons Confiscated Among those arrested were a German farmer who officers said had expressed hope of a Nazi war victory; a German only recently paroled from an alien concentra"- tion camp and an Italian awaiting deportation. Besides the cache of dynamite found near a farm house where a German alien was picked up, weapons in the possession of the 22 Germans, 21 Italians and two Japanese rounded up included a 14- inch knife fashioned from an automobile gearshift lever, arid two machetes, wicked cane and brush knives used ia tropical jungle countries. i'.The raids were termed "checkup arrests" by A. P. Kitchin, special agent in charge of the Dallas FBI office. The -roundup - was -carried put to determine-how many aliens in the county had complied with federal regulations regarding contraband surrendered. Still Violate Regulations v But_Eastus' said: ' .. :"_'_'It is apparent to me-that some aliens just will not comply with the. 'regulations. In spite of the fatherly protection we have'given th.em;, where they are .safe' from bombs-and persecution, they still must violate regulations when the enemy Vis at our throat. ..."They seem to feel that it is imperative that they keep in touch with the fatherland or the Duce or some other hyena that is causing all the trouble in the world For such people • our office will give the most vigorous prosecution.. "We have alien hearing boards and we are going to bring the bad cases to their attention and try to get these aliens interned for the duration and if possible deported after the war."

Most of the questions, officials said, have come from the area adjoining the present northwest city limits which is proposed for inclusion in the corporate Jimits. The area embraces approximateh- three-quartcrs o£ a square mile including the Friend's, Arnett and Benson and the Maddox sub-divisions. Approximately 2,500 people now live there. asked, question officials most frequently said, relates to , when property m the area will be assessed for city taxation if the territory is brought into the city. Tne assessments, officials said, would be after January 1, 1943 and the first city taxes would have to be paid before Feb. 1, 1944, to avoid becoming delinquent. Another question repeated frequently, according to officials, has related to when utilities extensions and pavement could be expected if the areas come into the city. On that point, officials have declined to make any promises. Extension Expected Soon The expectation is, they said, that water and sewer line extensions could be reached "before very long." But this has been emphasized as an expectation and nope, not as a promise. Officials made clear that in such matters as utilities extensions, pavement, street lights, and the like, the new area would have to take its place m the line of first come first served." Work of that kind needed and desired within the present city limits would, in most cases, come first.
