Description
Full title:Fred Doi, age 35, his wife Mrs. Doi, and their three small children relocated on the Omar Farm, near Elkhorn, Nebraska, last November. This is a dairy and poultry farm. At the present time, they have between 3,000 and 5,000 laying hens. The St. Joseph Hospital in Omaha, Nebraska, purchases all of the milk produced. Mr. Doi has proved himself to be very adaptable and capable. After working about six weeks, his employer raised his wages fifteen dollars per month. Besides salary he is provided with an eight room house, milk, eggs, poultry, and meat. The children have made friends with their schoolmates and teachers, and the women of the community of Elkhorn have called on Mrs. Doi and included her in their sewing circles and Red Cross projects. After the Dois were settled, Mrs. Bessie Nakase, a sister of Mrs. Doi whose husband is in the service, and Tom Nakanishi, a brother of Mrs. Doi, have joined the family. Tom is also employed on the farm, and the employer asked us to get two more farm workers for him. Elkhorn, Nebraska.
