Description
Full title:If 'Hot cargo' means a hot race of buyers trying to buy your produce, then I am for it, said Mrs. Chiyeno (Jimmy) Yamamoto when the camera man caught her sorting boysenberries on the Yamamoto berry farm near Cupertino. The buyers from San Francisco have come in droves and begged for our berries or at least a part of them from the very first, continued Mrs. Yamamoto, one of the first evacuees to return to Santa Clara County. The Yamamotos were told they would not be able to market their crop. But Jimmy and Chiyeno and her father, Jisaburo Tomiyasu (65 years old and active, but camera shy), went right along producing a crop. Long before harvest season buyers began dropping in. And hot cargo threats quickly cooled. The Yamamotos are from Heart Mountain. They relocated 15 minutes after Proclamation No. 21 became effective. With Mr. and Mrs. Yamamoto on their own farm are June and Linda, their two young daughters, and Mrs. Yamamoto's father, Jisaburo Tomiyasu. Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru Cupertino, California.
