registration might bo carried out; fol
lowing tho program adopted by I?ng
land nnd Franco for keeping watch
over tho activities of enemy subjects.
Tho recent Incrcnso In tho number
of disastrous fires, nnd Indications of
renewed operations of enemy jiropu
gandlsts have prompted officials to
consider more radical steps against
German residents than tho restrictions
heretoforo Imposed barring them from
a half-mile zone about munition plants'
and government property without spe
clal government permits.
Under tho proposed registration'
plan, Germans sroiilil bo given a spool
fled tlin'o, probably several weeks, In
which to report their names, occupa
tions, family or business connections
to postmusters or some other govern
ment agency. Those not registered
then would bo rounded up nnd prose
cuted, nnd officials believe that tho
failure of noma to enroll would glvo
valuable clues to tho Identity of sus
picious persons whose conduct and In
