ddr-densho-37-549 (Legacy UID: denshopd-i37-00549)
Original WRA caption: Rohwer Relocation Center, McGehee, Arkansas. Much of the timber cleared from reclaimed farm lands is used for fuel to heat barracks homes. Cutting and chopping is done by volunteer workers enlisted by block managers, to provide fuel for each individual block. Each capable resident is expected to contribute his share of time to the fuel project.
