Full title:Jimmy Tsujimoto, age 23, is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Rikitsu Tsujimoto, from the Poston Center. He has a younger brother, Harry, 17. They came to the Buffalo district to accept a farm opportunity on a share basis at Elma, New York, in December 1943. Although the bulk of the acreage had not been worked for twenty years, the Tsujimotos were able to get it into sufficiently good shape so the farm is now producing abundantly. This season they have planted and harvested tomatoes, cabbage, broccoli, peppers, egg plants, radishes, asparagus and rhubarb. In addition to these crops they grew flowers. Their employer, who operates a grocery store, reports that he marketed over $200 worth of gladioli alone, and said that tomatoes were so abundant that he has had to sell surplus baskets on the general market. Harry finished his high school course in a country school at Elma and made such a good record that he has earned an agricultural scholarship to Cornell University, which he is seriously considering accepting. The entire family work shoulder to shoulder on the farm, and are so encouraged by the results of their efforts that they are now looking around to buy their own farm and bring the equipment from the West Coast.<lb /> Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru<lb /> Elma, New York.
