Caption written by Kenneth Iyeki: "The barrack in the foreground was the recreation #6 building. Each area possessed its own rec hall. Competition was keen among them. From out the open window would [?] the sound of ping pong games in progress, little children screaming in laughter or just screaming, girls daring the boys to a volley ball game (we lost) and window panes tinkling to the ground. (It had to happen), the boys forming the Commander Club, the rec leader trying to keep things running smoothly. The leaders did much more than those who realize-realize."

August 24, 1942
