SULLIVAN United Press Staff Correspondent SAN KRANCISCO, March 3— The Army today declared the western ha!f of Washington Oregon and California and the southern half of Arizona a military area from which enemy aliens and American-born Japanese will be ousted progressively to rid the Pacific coast of a potential fifth column threat. Created in the- most drastic step yet taken toward alien control, the area was designed by Lieut Gen. John L. DeWitt, chief of the wcjtern defense command, under authority granted by President RooseveH and the War department. It affected 140,000 enemy aliens and 70,000 American-born Japanese., California alone has 93,000 alien and American-born Japanese. Oregon and Washin*- ton have 27,000. ° Evacuation Order Later Dewitt emphasized the proclamation merely sets up prohibited and restricted areas on the coast and does not represent an order for aliens and Japanese-Americans to move out. Evacuation will be ordered later. He said immediate compulsory mass evacuation of all enemy aliens and American-born Japanese was not practicable, and that there would be no mass evacuation. DeWitt said the entire process would be progressive and gradual, aimed at clearing the vital district but avoiding economic hardship to the extent consistent with the military urgency which impelled the action. Splits Into Fourths DeWitt's proclamation split the four states into fourths. One fourth—the coastal areas of the three Pacific coast states and the southern border of Arizona—was designated prohibited zone A-l The second fourth, except for certain prohibited zones within, was designated restricted zone B. Together, these two fourths from military area No. 1. The third and fourth quarters of the four states form military area No. 2. There are to be no restrictions in area No. 2 except for certain established prohibited zones. After defining the zones, De- Wiit gave a glimpse of the procedure which would be followed in removing or restricting enemy aliens and Japan ese'-Americans from their boundaries.

Class' 5—Italian aliens.; •Being Apprehended Daily DeWitt said persons in class 1 were being apprehended^ daily by the FBI and other intelligence services. The evacuation program itself does not concern with them. "Evacuation from .military areas will be a continuing orocess," DeWitt said.

When that work is completed DeWitt said, German and Italian aliens would be next in line fo evacuation. However, . German and Italian aliens TO years of a°e or over will not be required -to move "except when individually suspected." Also exempted will be "the families, including parents wives, children, sisters and brothers of Germans and Italians in the armed forces," unless such removal is required for sp'ecific reason She Got Awqy—But He Has Proof in Picture FORT BLISS, March 3 (P, — Movie Actress Rosalind Rus=ell bent over the form ot sleeping Pvt.

ALL THIS WEEK ,„ „ 'By The Associated Prtssi WASHINGTON, March 3—Senator Vandenberg, Michigan Republican, proposed with Democrat support today that President Roosevelt be given the power to veto legislative riders to appropriation bills. Var.denberg told reporters that efforts of the Senate farm bloc— later aoandoned—to attach a parity price amendment to a $32,762 '37,900 military appropriations bill demonstrated the need for le"i>=la turn which would permit the president to knock out individual items or riders in money bills. Perfect Example This is the perfect example of ™? n ,? c ?£ sl1 * f ? r P 16 so-called item veto the Michigan senator de- His views were sponsored by Chairman - Van .Nuys (D-Ind) of the Senate judiciary committee, which has under consideration a resolution by Vandenberg ea)5i n * lor a constitutional amendment to accomplish this purpose. Vandenberg said he believed the goal could be reached by passage of a simple law by Congress,. but since there was controversy on this point he advocated taking both routes. , "There is no reason why the president should have to swallow some rider that has no business on a bill just because the appropriations measure must be signed" Van Nuys declared. Efforts Ar« Aband^^d Assured that the War a~nd Navy department would not make any purchases of government - held crop surpluses with the funds involved. Senate farm bloc members abandoned efforts to attach the parity price provision to the huge military measure before it was passed-yesterday. The president has said that it would be reprehensible to attach a rider which ought to be vetoed to a bill which could not be vetoed. Farm bloc members, meanwhile took consolation in 'the fact that the House appropriations committee had written into the regular agriculture department appropriations bill a restriction against u<=e of the administration funds of the Commodity Credit corporation to ! dIS P° se , of crop surpluses, which ' could depress the existing prices of farm products.
