Full title:Ted Tanaka, Issei relocatee from the Granada, Colorado, Center, waits on a customer in his restaurant at Rocky Ford, Colorado. Although a farmer before evacuation from his home near Modesto, California, Tanaka proved that an Issei well along in middle life can start an entirely new venture in a strange community and make a success of it. His restaurant, which specializes in Chinese dishes, is popular not only with Caucasians, but is a magnet for Chinese aviation cadets stationed at air bases at La Junta, ten miles from Rocky Ford, and Pueblo, 55 miles distant. Tanaka has a wife, three sons, and four grandchildren. One son, Jimmie, a student in the RCA radio school in New York, recently passed his physical examination and expects to be called into the army soon.<lb /> Photographer: Mace, Charles E.<lb /> Rocky Ford, Colorado.
