Hirabayashi Posts Bond On Draft Charge

SPOKANE, July 4.--(AP)--Gordon K. Hirabayashi, 26-year-old Japanese-American, was free today on $1,000 bond after his arrest and arraignment on the federal indictment charging he failed to fill out and return a Selective Service questionnaire.

Hirabayashi told reporters he would be glad to serve in the Pacific as a neutral doing relief work but could not bear arms because of his membership in the Society of Friends. He said he did not plan to bring a test suit in the present case as he did unsuccessfully in his fight against the Japanese evacuation from the West Coast.
