Description
Full title:It takes many hands and a lot of stooping to cultivate and bleach celery, particularly a 40-acre patch of celery. That is why Masashi Namimatsu, known to his friends as Frank, calls upon a considerable group of evacuees to give him a hand on his San Jose ranch at 491 Boynton Avenue. Shown here working in the Namimatsu celery are Lily Takemoto, voluntary evacuee and relocatee from Utah, Tets Kifune, recently arrived from Heart Mountain, Masazo Kifune, father of Tets, Eddie Akizuki, recently returned from Gila, and Masami Kifune, relocated from Heart Mountain. Lily is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Kajiro Takemoto, who are now employed on the Bracker ranch near Santa Clara, California. The Takemoto family returned to San Jose in April from Fielding, Utah, at which place they voluntarily evacuated. The Kifunes returned from Heart Mountain in June of this year, and their relocation is now complete, except, of course, for Tomio, who is in the army at Camp Ritchie, Maryland. Eddie Akizuki, his father, Tsutomu, his mother, Yoshiko, sister, Bernice, and brother, Gary, all returned to San Jose from Gila in June. The Akizukis are housed temporarily with the K. Kogura family in San Jose. Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru San Jose, California.
