Breaking into the lime-
light is a lady, Mrs. Hanan
Arai, probably the oldest
living nisei from the Pacif-
io ooast.
Mrs. Arai is 58 years old
and never left California
until evacuation orders
forced her to do so.
She was born in San Fran-
oisoo in 1884 and attended
f-he La Count primary, Den-
lan grammar, and Girls high
schools. Until Mrs. Arai
was 15 years old she never
saw a Japanese of her own
Her parents operated the
first Japanese boarding
House at Stockton and Clay
streets from 1860-1906 when
the disastrous earthquake
on April.18,1906, destroyed
the building.
In 1896, she witnessed
the first fair ever held in
San Francisco, the Mid-win-
ter fair at Golden .Gate
Mrs. Arai attended the
Panama exposition at San
Francisoo in 1915, and had
the honor of shaking hands
with Vice President Mar-
Although a citizen of
the United States, Mrs.
Arai did not vote until
1941. She had married K.
Arai, an alien, in 1905,
therefore she thought her
voting rights automatically
became void. In 1941, when
a registration of all al-
iens was made she discov-
ered that if a citizen had
married an alien before
1907 she retained'her citi-
zenship.---Suyeo Sako

John N. Sayre, represent-
ing the Fellowship of Re-
conciliation, whose offices
are located in Berkeley and
New York, visited the proj-
ect last weekend.
His organization pub-
lishes booklets and pam-
phlets distributed to thou-
sands of citizens explaining
the losses incurred by the
evaouees, the problems of
post-war. adjustments, and
the demoralizing influences
met in relocation centers.
Sayre stated that speech-
es over radio stations and
oivio meetings have been
conduoted to present the
evacuees side of the story.
DUT-y OF ITlfliy
A sermon on "The Highest
Duty of Ifen" by Rev. Akira
Kuroda, formerly of the Los
Angeles Holiness churoh,

GREELEY, Oot. 29Wild
rumors about Japanese in
relocation oenters have
been refuted by Congressman
William S. Hill, a recent
edition of the Greeley Tri-
bune said.
"I have had many letters
protesting the fine -treat-
ment received by Japanese
in relocation centers,
Hill stated. "The publlo
is alarmed because reports
from the press
tell of many atrocities in-
flicted on our boys who are
Japanese- prisoners.
He squelohed rumors with
facts about housing, work,
public subsistence grants,
and clothing allowances in
relocation oenters.
