Full title:Mr. and Mrs. Kenji Sumi, Issei from the Heart Mountain Relocation Center, are relaxing in the bedroom of the furnished apartment they share with Mrs. Sumi's sister, Miss June Okubo, also an Issei from Heart Mountain. They found their comfortably furnished apartment by answering an advertisement in a New York City newspaper. By relocating to New York, Mr. and Mrs. Sumi, who were formerly engaged in domestic work in San Francisco, were enabled to learn and practice a new trade as silk screen operators for the Meissner Colorcrafts, where they are both employed. Miss Okubo is a secretary for Eastern Cooperative Wholesale. The Okubo sisters are graduates of Polytechnic High School, San Francisco; Mr. Sumi was graduated from Lowell High School there. While at Heart Mountain, Mr. Sumi was employed in the housing field office, Mrs. Sumi was a waitress in the mess hall, and Miss Okubo worked in the relocation office. Miss Okubo resettled in New York last March and was followed in May by Mr. and Mrs. Sumi. The parents of the Okubo girls, Mr. and Mrs. Tadaaki Okubo, and their brother Tadashige and his wife and child are still at Heart Mountain.<lb /> Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru<lb /> New York, New York.
