Full title:We're all set to go again, state Clarence Kimura and Kiyoshi Miya as they pose on their 170-acre farm in Birmingham, a suburb about 9 miles northeast of Kansas City, Missouri. Almost the entire farm is level bottom land on which they plan to grow most cabbages and some tomato and other vegetable crops. Clarence and his wife, Hazel, are formerly of Woodland, California, and relocated from the Granada, Colorado, center in March, 1944. Kiyoshi's hometown is Hanford, California, and he joined Clarence from the Jerome, Arkansas center in June 1944. Both men are graduates of the University of California College of Agriculture at Davis. In 1944, they operated a small acreage near Liberty, Missouri, raising tomatoes, cabbage, and beans on a semi-experimental basis while learning the characteristics of local soil, climate, etc. They will be ready to begin operations in a few days and other relocatees will be working on their farm this season. During winter, they secured temporary employment in essential industries, securing their housing through the War Housing Center.<lb /> Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru<lb /> Kansas City, Missouri.
