Description
Full title:Ed B. Phillips, shown seated on the tractor, is just starting from his asparagus field with a full load of grass, as asparagus is called on the farm. The asparagus cutters standing beside and behind the tractor are part of a group of 60 seasonal workers secured by the Illinois Mushroom company under contract with the War Food Administration to harvest the asparagus crop of Mr. Phillips and of a number of other growers in the vicinity of Naperville and Aurora. Mr. Phillips describes his Japanese American workers both Issei and Nisei as very satisfactory, as doing and working well, and as being cheerful and willing. Naperville, Illinois.
