Description
Full title:An interesting picture is in the making as the many intriguing pieces of a jig-saw puzzle are begin fitted together by the efforts of Ken Shinagawa and his Caucasion landlady, Mrs. C. Leonard. The young lady kibitzer who is standing nearby is Mrs. I. Main. The place is the living room of Ken's boarding house where one other Nisei, Jim Nakamura, and six Caucasians live under one roof. It's just like a school dormitory, says Ken. They often refer to Mrs. Leonard as the housemother. Address of this home is 3716 Garfield Avenue in Kansas City, Missouri. The weekly rate is $9.00, which includes breakfast and dinner and a box lunch each day to carry to work. Ken is employed at The Agar Container Company as Assistant Machine Operator, averaging better than $50.00 a week. Now is the time to resettle, while things are good, is Ken's opinion. He was formerly from Poston. Kansas City, Missouri.
