Assignment by Satoru Sakuma for class taught by Mr. Harry Bentley Wells, a teacher at Manzanar High School. Satoru describes his daily routine at Manzanar. He wakes up, attends school, and then heads home to do his home work. However, instead of completing his work, he plays marbles and basketball with some of his friends. He realizes he doesn't have time to complete his home work and so Satoru decides to tell the teacher the he was sick last night. Over the weekend he plays basketball and watches some of the other teams. He says there's very little else to do at Manzanar. Transcription is found in item: ecm_wells_9035.
