ALTHOUGH I have worked with the PXO-
PEER but a short time* I have never found
a staff that put in so many hours and
that worked so cheerfully and faithfully
as that of our little Amache newspaper,
I have enjoyed working with all of you
since I have been the acting reports of-
ficer. How that the FIOFEER is signing

The Advance Party from the Merced assembly center
arrived at Granada, August 27, 1942, The first reg-
ular evacuee contingent arrived on September 3, 1942,
also from Merced.. The last contingent arrived Sep-
tember 28, 1942, coming from Santa Anita.
On October 14, 1942, the first flews Bulletin was
printed: the fourth Bulletin carried a page In Japa-
nese. On October 28, 1942, Volume I, Ho. 1 of the
Granada PIONEER was issued.
Through all the trials and vicissitudes of camp
life--relocation, segregation, voluntary enlistment,.
Selective Service, transfers in and transfers out,
increments from Tula Lake and Jerome--the paper has
carried on. It has given the residents the news, as
the editor saw It; and has dispensed necessary in-
formation for the Administration.
On behalf of the Administration I thank the staff,
past and present* may good luck go with you!
To the people of the center; In the first issue
of the PIONEER I extended greetings and. welcome. I.
have carry out the commitments made In that
message. I appreciate^ your help. Many of' you have
been here for the full three years and, like myself,
are eager to return to your homes.
May good fortune attend you, every one I 1 wish
you well.

SOMEHOW I FIND 'the 'keys
on my typewriter "h e a vy"
in pounding out this, my
last column for the PIO~
rNESR. At the same time

I started writing columns,

work has meant to me. It
has given me an outlet to
certain of my pent-up feel-
ings. It has given me an
opportunity to do something
I liked to do, and had
helped to- take some of the
dullness out., of the drab
camp life; \ Believe me;
am grateful to the provi-
dencesthat brought it about.
In the number of columns
Ive written,. -I found my-
self in varied roles. Ive
been a villain to those
whose opinions countered
mine; to those whose actions
I couldnt countenance. And
Ive been sort of a "hero"
--if in. a small way (which
has been a source of much
joy to me)--to those whose
cause I tried to help along;
to those who shared my kind
of thinking. L- am just as
thankful for the former as
for the latter in that
they have added spice to my
life here, lifted my work
out of the rut and routine,
and gave me the satisfac-
tion of knowing that some-
body was paying attention
to my efforts.

they and I saw the same
thing not in the same light.
They were looking through
WRA eyes, which was their
prerogative, and I was at-
tempting to show cause for
the evacuees. Both stands,

yet there couldnt be a

feel that this has been a
loss, I do not altogether
regret it. If a person,
chooses to dislike me sim-
ply because our opinions
failed to -coincide on one

value to me--in time of

the editorship, Ive heard
echoes of grumblings on the
PIONEER policy* I daresay
some harsh words were used
profusely. Although dis-

working for something above
such discriminatory criti-

To All Amacheans;
It has been a privilege to have served
you as high school principal for the last
three years I shall always remember the
cooperative student body and the many
parents who helped us create a high school
on the dusty hill of the enter. 1 re*-

you leave with restored faith and hope
to resume your 'lives in either new or
former homes.
To all teachers, assistants, and jan-
itors, both appointed and resident, who
worked faithfully, remembering the words
of Tagore, "He who teaches a child labors
w/ith God in His workshop," I extend my
sincere thanks, To Mr# Paul Terry and
Dr, Lloyd Garrison and to the project
staff go my respect and appreciation for
their wise guidance and consideration*
Mrs* Walther,Karel Jean, and I recall
gratefully the courteous hospitality of
the residents of 6F block, with whom we
lived for a year.
Sincerely yours,

Frank Tsuchiya> ow/ner of the Grenada
Fish market "and also associated with the
California Fish company, Los' Angeles, in
a recent letter to Project Director James
G. Lind ley says in part-,
"I notice by the PIONEER the relocation
pace has greatly accelerated-now/ the w/ar
is overso the most ardent die-hards
will have to get out... The.sooner the
people leave camp, the better it w/ill be
for them.
"When I first made my trip to Los An-
geles in M/rch, I saw only a few Japanese
but today they are .all over tow/n. Most
of them regret the fact they did not leave
the center sooner. Housing is very .acute
but the early relocatees by coining out
early have been able to find houses.

iNE of the queerest things about race prejudices
Is the way they are held by people who are them-
selves victims of race prejudice. At a meeting of
the Japanese
zens league to
vited in Denver
I was told that
American Citi-
which I was in-
the othe r night,
there are many
Japanese Americans who, although vigorously protesting
race prejudice when it applied to them, had strong pre-
judices themselves against other minorities, such as
MexIcans, Negroes and Jews,
The Japanese American Citizens League is combating
such prejudices among their own group with the very
sensible argument, "How do you expect others to stop
being prejudiced against you If you insist on having
similar prejudices yourself?" .
Unfortunately, the point is-hard to get across to
many members of minority groups. The reason is not far
to seek. The victim of discrimination .is simply con-
soling himself by finding someone else to discriminate
against, "I may be low down, a Japanese American may
say to himself, "but at least Im not as low down as
those Mexicans." Or the Negro may say, "I may be .low
down, but at least Ifm not as bad as those Jews,

Many people have' requested reservations^ for coaches
leaving, on scheduled dates and then at the last minute
have cancelled their reservations and set ta later date
for departure? This practice mast peasel When we or-
ders car from the railroad company we guarantee a cer-

to receive bo*th letters and phone calls from high of-

will not be able to continue to' furnish special coaches
and Pullmans unless we live up to' our agreements. We
are going tolive up to them. N6 cancellations will
