Description
Full title:The six children of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Omachi on the $135,000 farm near Grand Island, Nebraska, leased by Hi Korematsu. The children are Albert, Gertrude, and Elaine in front, and the Omachi twins, Jean and Joan, and Esther. All five of the older Omachi children attend schools located conveniently to the Korematsu farm. Instead of corn, Mr. Korematsu plans to plant garden crops on his 800 irrigated acres this spring. He needs workers immediately and can provide housing for 12 families. In addition to providing housing, Mr. Korematsu will pay $125 per month to single men plus board, and $140 per month to married men plus groceries at wholesale prices. To those who stay on permanently, Mr. Korematsu will pay a bonus at the end of each year based on profits. Women and children can also earn money on the farm doing seasonal labor. Wages are 35 to 50 cents per hour for bunching potatoes, crating spinach, etc. Address is Hi Korematsu, Route No. 1, Shelton, Nebraska. Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru Shelton, Nebraska.
