Aliens Turn in 256 Contraband Articles

Two hundred and fifty-six items, declared contraband last week by Gov. Arthur B. Langlie, have been turned in to the Seattle and Renton offices of the State Patrol by enemy aliens and American-born Japanese, officers reported today.

Of the number, 156 were surrendered here. The deadline for turning in the contraband was extended from Thursday night to 5 o'clock this afternoon. Included on the contraband list are short-wave radios, firearms, dynamite and swords.
