Full title:Norman Tanabe, formerly of Topaz and Marysville, California; Hi Korematsu, formerly of Topaz and Oakland; and Peter Omachi, formerly of Topaz and Loomis, California, with some of the $20,000 worth of equipment on the farm leased by Mr. Korematsu, Shelton, Nebraska. This $135,000 farm has been used formerly for corn, but Mr. Korematsu plans to plant garden crops on its 800 irrigated acres this spring. He needs workers immediately and can provide housing for 12 families. Mr. Omachi has six children, five of them in schools located conveniently to the farm. In addition to providing housing, Mr. Korematsu will pay a bonus each year based on the profits. Mr. Korematsu has been in farming all his life, is a 1939 graduate of Cornell, and did so well on this farm last year that a company has financed him so he can lease it this year with an option to buy. Address is Hi Korematsu, Route No. 1, Shelton, Nebraska. Women and children can also earn money on the farm seasonally. Wages are 35 to 50 cents per hour for bunching potatoes, crating spinach, etc.<lb /> Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru<lb /> Shelton, Nebraska.
