Assignment by Mary Honda for period II History class taught by Mr. Harry Bentley Wells, a teacher at Manzanar High School. Mary describes the reason for being at Manzanar and the need to do everything possible to make Manzanar as home-like as possible. Safety and avoiding further unhappiness from the thoughts of war are the reasons she identified for being at Manzanar. She hopes that people will make the most of the situation and everyone should cooperate to make something they can be proud of. Transcription is found in item: ecm_wells_9027.
