HILTON HOTEL Albuquerque New Mexico Card Mailed From Java On Dec. 7 Requested nformatjon From C, Of C.' Regarding City- Wednesday the chamber of commerce received a card which read: "I am interested in West Texas. Please send me information about Lubbock and surrounding territory, descriptive 'literature on points of interest and recreation, and an economic survey. Also a city map." The inquiry is typicai of hundreds received at the chamber of commerce over the course of a year. But this particular card will receive very special treatment, for two reasons. One reason is thai; it was postmarked in Soerabaja, Java, last-Dec. 7. The great Soerabaja naval base was the chief objective ot the Japanese when they invaded Java. Because of the other reason, the card has been turned over to the proper federal authorities. This precaution was taken as a safeguard against taking any chance, no matter how remote, that it might have military value. As painted out by chamber officials, it isn't likely, but it is possible that agents of the chins, druggist. Marfa, K. E. Petross, railroad agent. Memphis, Carl Harrison, hardware merchant. Meridian, J. T. Lomax, auto dealer. Midland, Ralph. M. Ban-on, banker. Muleshoe, Charles Leneau, lumber dealer. Odessa, Jas. S. Key, insurance and loans. Olney, C. T. Woolverton, jr., oil company agent. Pampa, Crawford Atkinson, auto supply dealer, fecos, Kayman Pouncey, auto sales manager. Perryton, Aldon B. Bell, wheat exchange operator. Petersburg. W. C.

Roswell, New Mexico in WTCC affiliated territory, the president for 1942 is W. W. Merritt, owner of a ladies ready to wear store. Japs might have sent similar, requests to many places in the United States in an effort to secure information and maps which might prove useful if they ever should succeed in an invasion of this country. Chamber oifioials hadn't decided definitely whether .to attempt an answer to the card. If the attempt is made, it will be to see what happens. But if there is an answer, it will contain neither a. map of the city of Lubbock nor any other information of possible use to an invader.
