March 14, 1942, FBI Arrests Japanese  

March 14, 1942: The FBI leads arrests of Buddhist priests, teachers, photographers, housewives, gardeners and businessmen in the continuing roundup of “enemy aliens.” Among the arrested was the Rev. Hiroshi Izumi of the Japanese Congregational Church in Santa Barbara.

“It is understood that most if not all of those arrested yesterday were either Japanese-language school instructors or were connected with them in some other capacity,” The Times said.

James Bartram sent away a “dazzling blond” who knocked at his door,  angering the Hollywood producer who had arranged a date for him, according to testimony in his divorce case.

Chinese actor Keye Luke has been working on illustrations for a new edition of Donn Byrne’s “Messer Marco Polo.” He leaves for New York as soon as he finishes “Across the Pacific” to take the drawings to his publishers and will hold an exhibition of his work while there, Hedda Hopper says.

    The airplanes in the cartoon look just like Lockheed Hudsons or Venturas, but those planes actually had twin tails.
