ES: This is one of my friends, closest friend from Arizona relocation center. He came visiting Heart Mountain center because there are many of his friends here. This is, on the right was my neighbor. This friend of mine from Arizona, after a few days' stay, or visit, he returned to Arizona camp again. He is now living in San Jose.

WH: What's his name?

ES: Toshi Nakamura. I think he is ninety-two years old. That's Miss Virgil Paine, she's a wonderful person. Alongside of him is Douglas M. Todd, vice-administrator. Here Miss Paine is leaving for some position in Washington, D.C.

And this gentleman, I don't recall his name, but you know, the personnel at Heart Mountain were very compassionate. They listened to you, and that's the reason I liked the center very much. Although we had a few difficulties and misunderstandings, but those were ironed out very quickly.
