Description
Full title:One of the live wires of the San Jose evacuee farm colony is Masashi--Frank to his friends--Namimatsu, shown here inspecting his celery crop near San Jose. Besides farming his own place, Frank has been a life saver to many of the evacuees who are without farm equipment. He has kept his several tractors running day and night helping his neighbors get their land into shape for planting. Frank arrived here from Salt Lake City by way of Gila in February of this year. With him are his wife, Toshiko, his three daughters, Phyllis, Frances, and June; and his brother, Hiroshi. In spite of the fact that he has been here only a short time, Frank is now maturing one of the largest celery crops in the Santa Clara Valley--approximately 40 acres. Some indication of his business ability and of the attitude of the large banks toward relocation may be drawn from the fact that Frank recently borrowed $25,000 from a San Jose Bank with which to produce his celery crop. I see no difference in public sentiment now than before evacuation, says Frank. We have no difficulty buying supplies of any kind if they are available at all and we have already had a number of buyers inquiring about our celery crop. With us everything is okay. Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru San Jose, California.
