Description
Full title:A successful post-evacuation farmer is Harry Saisho, 62, who operates about 85 acres of irrigated tract near Holdrege, Nebraska. Mr. Saisho formerly farmed near Turlock, California. His present crops are mostly potatoes and sugar beets with about 15 acres devoted to various vegetables on an experimental basis. The farm is owned by Dr. T. A. Petersen of Holdrege, who is highly satisfied with Mr. Saisho's efforts. The soil is black sandy loam of good fertility and there are already signs of a bumper crop for this year. Other members of the Saisho household include Harry's wife, 46, three sons, a brother and another evacuee. Still another son is serving in the army. They relocated from the Granada Relocation Center on January 11, 1944. Holdrege, Nebraska.
