Trial Set for Jap In Evacuation Case

United States District Judge Lloyd L. Black today set for October 20 the trial of Gordon Hirabayashi, 24-year-old American-born Japanese, and University of Washington student, accused of refusing to obey evacuation orders of the Army.

The student was chairman of a "conscientious objectors' group" when he attended the University. he contends the military order is a denial to American citizens the civil liberties to which they are entitled.
