B.C. Japs, Sent Inland, Can't Take Families

Special to The Times.

VANCOUVER, B.C., March 23. -- First 100 of the 3,000 Vancouver Japanese to be sent to work in pulp mills and logging camps of Ontario will leave within the next few days, it was announced today.

The Japanese will be selected carefully for this work. Family men may be included in the first contingent, but will not be allowed to take their families with them. Women and children will remain in British Columbia.

Japanese labor also will be used to improve the Cariboo Highway, from Clinton north, and several sections of the Trans-Canada Highway in British Columbia.
