the Jap soldiers into some devilish plan to
horass us.
"All of us ogreed, after hearing him brag

that if we ever saw him ogain we would kill
him. I don't doubt that every American who

Since returning here, Kawokito told the
FBI, he hos been engaged in the export-import

"The republicans are reducing the

more than the loss of taxes by re

"Personally I cannot see any rea
