Effects of alien laws began to be felt around Santa Cruz high school today where Lila Kitahara and George Hashimoto had to leave school because they are moving from an area prohibited to aliens of enemy nationality after midnight, February 24.

Both were members of the high junior class at the high school, both prominent in high-school affairs. Hashimoto was a member of the boys' quartet, which made several local appearances.

Several others are expected to drop out of school either because they are aliens or one or both of their parents are aliens. A store catering to high school trade reports the loss of several high school boys of Japanese descent.
