THE MORNING AYAUNCHE 1942 Dial 4343 For The Avo(onche-Journ*t Offico [Great Britain Appoints Australian To Be Minister Of State In Middle East lirst Dominion Statesman Ever lafeh Into Inner Fold Is Named . -LONDON, March 19. (ff>—Brit-y ain's government took a dominion statesman into its inner fold today, for the first time in history, appointing Australia's Richard G. Casey to be minister of state in the Middle-East for the war cabinet. The handsome and vigorous Son Of Local Chinese Cafe Man Said Safe "Safe in Macao." That terse communication brought welcome news to Tom Shek Nom, Chinese operator of Casey now is Australia minister the S ji ver Grill cafe, Thursday. The news was contained in a telegram from his 12-year-old son, Tom Kuo Cau, and left the impres-* sion that the boy presumably is with his mother at Macao, a Portuguese pert. They formerly were at Hongkong. Macao is about 60 miles from the fallen British bas- to Washington. The appointment, announced in the House of Commons by Prime Minister Churchill, was interpreted in some quarters as an effort to re-tie the bonds between Australia and the motherland at a moment when the dominion seems to be pulling away towards the United States. Authorized British quarters said full concurrence of Australian Prime Minister John Curtin had been received before the appointment was suggested to Casey. Personal Proposal However, a Reuter dispatch from Canberra quoted Curtin as saying he had first told Casey that "having regard for all circumstances, it was the wish of the commowealth government not to make any change in the Australian representation in Washington as matters stand. Curtain added: "It was made clear that this was our wish and not our instruction," that it was "initimated to me that the proposal was entirely personal" and that he had therefore cabled Casey "The decision was one entirely between Mr. Churchill and himself." Casey replaces Oliver Lyttelton and will have headquarters at Cairo. Lyttelton recently was made minister of war production. Henry Methvin Paroled By Oklahoma Governor OKLAHOMA CITY, March 19. (#>)—Henry Methvin, dapper gunman who betrayed the notorious outlaw duo of Clyde Barrow and cigar-smoking Bonnie Parker to their deaths in Louisiana for a Texas pardon, was paroled today by Governor Leon C. Phillips. .Methvin, once condemned to die in Oklahoma_'s electric chair, •was serving a life term for the murder of Cal Campbell, a Commerce, Okla., police officer. Campbell was slain when he attempted to question Methvin, Barrow and Bonnie Parker as the trio sat in a parked automobile near Commerce April 6, 1934. He was lion. The Lubbock man, who expressed the opinion that his family was safe as long as the Portuguese remain out of the war, was informed that he might communicate with his son in care o Hipwoh Middleschool at Macao in care of Mokkink,. the schoo principal. Evacuation Of Japs To Start (By The Associated Prcssl SAN FRANCISCO, March 19— Mass evacuation of all Japanese from military zone No. 1 starts early next week with a contingent of 1,000 volunteers from Los Angeles area, and the Army made t clear today that it wants the 2.00-mile-long strategic strip o£ oastline cleared with the least iossible delay. Lieut.-General J. L. De Witt, lead of the western ^defense command, urged other Japanese to fol- ow the example of the Los Angles volunteers, saying: Cooperation Is Urged "I desire to make it unmistake- ably clear that evacuation will be continued with or without such cooperation. With such cooperation, those affected will find their situation much less difficult" The Los Angeles volunteers are ;he first evacuation group announced by the Army," although voluntary exodus has been reported gaining momentum. They will help establish homes, agricultural work, schools, churches, a 150- bed hospital, recreational facilities and generally pioneer a reception center at Manzanar, 40 miles south of Bishop in the Owens valley .of London Paper Gets Warning i By The Cnitcd Pie ss> LONDON, March 19— An official spokesman said today that the government had warned thu London Daily Mirror that it would be suppressed "if it continued to publish irresponsible matter calculated to foment opposition to the successful prosecution of the war." He said the newspaper, a -tabloid morning .paper, had received its warning in connection with a cartoon showin it published recently, a group of seamen and Royal Air .Force men under the caption: "The price of petrol (gasoline) has been raised one penny." Refers To Editorial Referring to an editorial in the same issue, he said: "Reasonable criticism is one th: g but general violent denunciation, tending to undermine the Army and depress the whole popu- Dr. Kramer Speaker At Kiwanis Luncheon Dr. James W, Kramer, Denver, Colo., Baptist evangelist and who was present at the organization of Rotary International, spoke Thursday noon at a Kiwanis club lunch- f:bn in Lubbock hotel. Dr. Carl E. Hereford, in whose church the minister is holding a pre-Easter revival, was program chairman.. President O. J. Sexton presided and following the meeting, directors met and voted on two applications for membership. Jesse James o£ Austin, state treasurer, a former Lubbock school student in l9'21-25, spoke briefly. Dr. Kramer discussed the function of service clubs in the civic life of a community.

"The cartoon in question was a particularly evil example of the newspaper's policy, intent on exploiting an appetite for sensation. "With reckless indifference to the national interest it has repeatedly published scurrilous misrepresentations and distorted, exaggerated statements." If the newspaper were suppressed, it would be the first since the Communist London Daily Worker, was closed down - 13 months ago. that came under his personal observation.
