415 Japanese Aliens Reach Dakota Camp

BISMARCK, N.D., Monday, Feb. 9.--(AP)--Four hundred and fifteen Japanese enemy aliens arrived here today and were whisked to the Fort Lincoln internment camp, a mile south of the city, to join more than 400 German internees.

Although officials refused to comment, it was understood most, if not all of the internees, came from the California area. This was borne out by the fact that few had even topcoats to wear. The Japanese were guarded by a cordon of federal immigration partolmen armed with sub-machine guns.
