Full title:Masashi Namimatsu, relocated from Salt Lake City and Gila to his vegetable ranch at 491 Boynton Avenue, San Jose, is shown here with his three daughters, Phyllis, 18; Frances, 12, and June, 11. The picture is taken at the Namimatsu home. Masashi--Frank to his friends--is one of the fortunate farmers who retained all of his farm equipment throughout evacuation. When he returned to his home in February of this year, he brought his equipment with him and since that time his several tractors have been worked day and night helping other evacuees get their land into shape for planting. Frank is one of the largest growers of celery in the San Jose District. He now has about 40 acres planted to this crop and the cultivation of it requires considerable extra labor. Frank is using evacuees exclusively on his farm. Public reception? repeated Frank when asked how he had been received. Just say it is better than before evacuation so far as the Namimatsus are concerned.<lb /> Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru<lb /> San Jose, California.
