Full title:Opal Matsushige and her sister Lilly are relaxing in the Baltimore, Maryland, apartment they are occupying temporarily until a home, which their family recently purchased in another part of the city, is available for their occupancy. They live with their mother, Mrs. Manuela Matsushige, a naturalized citizen of Spanish-Mexican extraction, and their brother, Eugene. The family relocated to Baltimore in November, 1943, from the Colorado River Relocation Center. Mr. Matsushige died there the preceding May. Prior to evacuation, the Matsushiges owned a farm at Holtville, Calif. Now Mrs. Matsushige is employed by a pretzel-manufacturing company; Lily works as a clerk in the Baltimore office of the Social Security Board; Opal attends Western High School; and Eugene attends City College High School and works part-time in the office of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom. Lily was married in Baltimore in February to Technician 5, Tom Sakemi, who is now overseas with the anti-tank unit of the 442nd Combat Team.<lb /> Photographer: Van Tassel, Gretchen<lb /> Baltimore, Maryland.
