Homes of enemy aliens in the San Jose and Mountain View areas were being raided today by 25 FBI agents and local officers on warrants charging possession of contraband.
Italians and Germans, as well as Japanese, were said to be named in the search and seizure warrants.
The voice of Japans Lord Haw Haw, radio propagandist, was identified today as that of Hideo Okusako, American-born Japanese and graduate of the University of California, according to dispatches from Auburn.
Earl Crabbe, dean of men at Placer Junior College, and Robert Kinsinger, Stanford student, said he identified himself at the end of a propaganda broadcast from Tokio.
Okusako, whose parents reside at Newcastle, attended Placer Union High School and Sacramento Junior College, then was graduated from U.C. in 1937. He went to Japan later, but returned to the United States to register for the presidential election in 1940, Mr. Crabbe asserted.
