Full title:Home again and happy! Heart Mountain Special No. 2, carrying nearly 100 Santa Clara County evacuees, pulled into 16th Street Station in Oakland around 1:00 P.M.--three hours late but no one seemed to care. Relocation Officers from San Jose and a Reports Officer from the Northern California Area office boarded the train in Oakland and delivered a formal Welcome Home. Came then, the always interesting ferry ride across San Francisco Bay, a taxi dash across busy bustling San Francisco to Third and Townsend and the final lap on the Three Five in a special car down the peninsula to Santa Clara County. In Palo Alto, Mountain View and Sunnyvale friends--Caucasian and Japanese--were waiting with cars and words of genuine welcome. Due to San Jose Depot congestion, the main body left the train in Santa Clara, where a large crowd waited to deliver evacuees to their final destinations. Reception plans throughout were worked out by WRA and the Santa Clara County Chapter of the Council for Civic Unity.<lb /> Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru<lb /> San Francisco, California.
