Assignment by Ruth Ryoko Saitow (portion of name is missing due to torn upper right corner, full name determined via class roster) for period V Social Problems class taught by Mr. Harry Bentley Wells, a teacher at Manzanar High School. The author comments on the need for workers during the war, but all of the Japanese Americans were put into camps and are working at jobs that have no future. The war is causing a shortage in labor for farms, and men and boys are being taken out of camp on furlough. Meanwhile, most of those in camp are loyal Americans and are idling away waiting for peace time. Transcription is found in item: ecm_wells_9024.
