Description
Full title:Because the lease on their ranch had another year to run did not stop Mr. and Mrs. Katsusaburo Oda from relocation in Santa Clara County. The Odas arrived here in April of this year from Heart Mountain and found housing with friends at 659 North Fifth Street, San Jose. They are shown here picking boysenberries on the Cupertino ranch of Mr. and Mrs. James Yamamoto, pioneers of relocation in Santa Clara County. The Odas own a 14-acre highly productive farm on Route 2, Box 206, San Jose, which is leased to Filipino friends. The lease will expire at the end of the current year, at which time the Odas plant to return to their own home and re-embark upon a farming career. The Odas were recently joined here by their daughter, Sakae, who had relocated in Chicago. Mr. Oda is 59 and Mrs. Oda is 46. Nevertheless, they responded to the call for berry pickers sent out by the Yamamotos recently. We do not mind the work, said Mrs. Oda. In these days everyone must work in order that there will be no wastage on our farms. And besides, the pay for farm labor is high. Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru Cupertino, California.
