Description
Full title:Ikuro Wada, former produce packing shed worker from Hollister, California, came to Denver from the Colorado River Relocation Center. Ikuro praised the attitude of his fellow workers at the Hartner Produce Company, where 70 of the 90 employees are Japanese-American. Mr. Elmer Hartner, company manager, praised Ikuro's work and added, We don't have to worry about discriminatory practices because Japanese-Americans work in harmony with Caucasians. This country should utilize its thousands of Japanese-Americans in agriculture and other fields where there are labor shortages.
