YOUNG GERMAN ASKS TO BE ARRESTED
CANNOT GET WORK. (By Telegraph.—Press Association.) Auckland, February 9. A young German named Robert Emil Winkler, aged 25 yeare, presented himself at. the Auckland Police Station this morning and asked that he be arrested. He stated that before the war broke out he was employed by a hairdresser in the city, and on account of his nationality he had been thrown out of work and had found that his German birth debarred him from getting work. He had now come to the end of his resources. Winkler was formally taken into custody on a charge of vagrancy, and came before Mr. Frazer, S.M., who remanded him for a week- to enable the police to communicate with the military authorities, remarking that if the circumstances were as stated it would probably be a kindness to prisoner to intern him as a hostile alien.
