Dynamite, Poisons Found on Jap Farms

SANTA ANA, Calif., Aug. 6. -- (AP) -- Sheriff Jesse L. Elliott yesterday reported discovery of two Japanese caches of poisons, other chemicals, dynamite and photographs of oil fields and military establishments which he believed intended for sabotage.

The caches were found by tenants who had taken over farms of Japanese removed to assembly camps.

The Westminster farm where the poisons, other chemicals and photographs were uncovered was near a reservoir which supplies the Huntington Beach area and near an oil-tank farm, Elliott said. A San Juan Capistrano farmhouse, near gas and power substations, yielded the dynamite.
