Assignment by Henry Haruda for period VIII World Geography and History class taught by Mr. Harry Bentley Wells, a teacher at Manzanar High School. Henry recounts needing to leave his dog Scrappy behind when his family left Los Angeles. He tells a story of Scrappy stealing bacon from the grocery store and getting into the neighbor's chickens. The day before the forced evacuation he had to give the dog to a neighbor, and he thinks of his dog constantly. Transcription is found in item: ecm_wells_9020.
