F.B.I. Watching Jap Groups, Says Hoover

WASHINGTON, April 6.--The Federal Bureau of Investigation has been closely scrutinizing certain Fascist and Japanese organizations, it was disclosed yesterday in the publication of testimony of J. Edgar Hoover, Federal Bureau of Investigation director, before a House appropriates subcommittee.

"We have to be alert, because particularly the Japanese have a propensity for joining and forming organizations, almost under any pretext," Hoover said. "This problem of organizing the fact extends to some of the war-relocation camps which have been set up for such individuals."
