Caption by Kenneth Iyeki: "A scene midway on the track length on the west side of camp. At the very end of the track to the left is the commisary warehouse. The rails were a favorite of youngsters. They would boast of having walked such and such a distance. Never heard of anyone balancing his way the whole mile and an eighth. There were more sensible things to do. Running the oval was a favorite recreation. Early in the mornings or in the evenings, one could see internees plodding endlessly along."

September 10, 1942
