Description
Full title:Mrs. Kay Korematsu, formerly of Tule Lake and Marysville, California, in front of her house on the $135,000 farm that her husband has leased near Grand Island, Nebraska. Mr. and Mrs. Hi Korematsu have accommodations for several families in this modern home which has an all-electric kitchen and is nicely furnished. Mr. Korematsu can provide housing for 12 families on his farm. Wages are excellent and for those who stay permanently a bonus will be given on the basis of the profits each year. For single men who can operate a tractor and help irrigate the land, Mr. Korematsu will pay $125 per month plus room and board. Married men will be provided housing, $140 per month and their groceries at wholesale prices. Mr. Korematsu will develop the 800 acres for truck-gardening, and expects to plant several thousand potatoes the first of April, with other crops to follow--tomatoes, beets, carrots, lettuce, etc. His address is Route No. 1, Shelton, Nebraska. A little yellow school house for elementary grades is located near the main farm house; the high school is three miles away, and Mrs. Korematsu furishes transportation to the high school. Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru Shelton, Nebraska.
