PRCSiDFNT GIVtS UNQUAliftfD APPROVAL TO
ARMY'S MOVE TO MAKE NISEI COMBAT TEAM
A photostatio copy of President Franklin D. I!00seveit1 s letter to
Secretary of F/ar 3tiinsoiiregarding the announcement of the formation
of a Japanese-Auierioan combat unit, was tioday received by Project
Director James Gr Lindley for Gapt* Williams. Fairohildj head of
the Army recruiting team now at the center.
The text of the letter:
THE WHITE HOUSE
WAShhNC3TM
February 1,1943
My Dear Mr. Secretary:
' Tha* proposal of the War Dapartment to organise a combat
team consisting of loyal American ciiisens of Japanese desoent
has my full approvals The new combat team will add. to the nearly
five thousand loyal Americans of Japanese ancestry who are already
serving in the armed forces of our country.
This is a natural and 10gieal step toward the reinstxtu-
tion of the Selective Service procedures -whicli were temporarily
disrupted by the evacuation from the West Coast#
No loyal citizen of the United St&tes should te denied
the democratic right to exercise the responsibilities of his
citisenship, regardless of his ancestry. The- principle on which
this country was founded and by wiiich it has always "bedn govoraed
is that Americdnism is a matter of tlie mind and heart; AmorioaniBin
is not, and never was, a_ matt&r of race or ancestry* A good American
is one wiio is loyal to this country and to our creed of liberty and
democracy. Evory loyal American citizen should be given the oppor-
tunity to serve this country wherever his skills will the
greatest contribution -- whether it be in the ranks of our armed
forces, war production, agriculture, government service, or other
work esseEtial to the war^ effort#
I -am glaA to ofes:rve,tliat the War Duprtmuni, tne NBvy
Department, the War Ifenpower CormiaiBsion, the Department of Justice,
and tiie Wax* RelOGation Authority are collaborating in a program
will assure the opportunity for all loyal Americans, includir
Americans of Japanese ancestry, to serve their country at a time
i?iierx the fullest and isest use of our manpower is all-important
to the war effort.
The Honorable,
The Secretary of War,
Washington, i C
?ery sincerely yours?

enlistment in the armed
forces has been the subject
of much, discussion.
The response to tMs
opportity of serving the
country may possibly be
.slow. t
The War department's re-
ceirb release was a complete
atout fac to their previ-
ous stand.
Less than a year ago
many nisei desiring to en-
list were refused because
of tiieir ancestry. They
were told that tiie Army
could not or would not use
blxena.
Since then the vast ma-
jori-tyiias been reclassified
as 4C, .a classification
.for persons unfit for seru-
ice
Our "belief in America
and Americanism is some-
thing inborn, "but the prin-
ciples of Americanism em-
bodied in the Bill of Rights
were or thefirst casuax-
ties of "the war. Our faith
in our country, while not
"broken, has received a frac-
ture fromthe discrimination
accorded us. Time will heal
this fracture,"but there is
HQ substitute for time.
If the Wav department or
the public expects an im
mediate response o St imson s
proclamation, they are be-
ing unfair to the-nisei.
Volunteering imj be slow
at first for the nisei must
"be allowed to readjust their
outlook. They must "be given
an opportunity to realize
that the fracture to the
'principles of Americanism
is "being mended.

Oscar Buttedahl, reports
officer from Washington,
at the PIONEER staff meet-

He placed much oonfi-*
dence in the successful
relocation of the evacuees
in the months to come# He
felt that the recent an-
nouncement made by the Wftr
department in reference to
the nisei "being admitted in-
fo the armed services would
result in favorable public
reactions, and t hat it
would play axl important
pfirt in the placement of

Sandvo's, associate de-

Used as reference, the

The survey, crew, con-
sisting of 12 to 15 boys,
have teen working under
Ernest Fukuda, formerly un
engineer with the City of
Ls Angeles.
In October and November,
the crew made a complete
survey of the 31 miles of

"boundary signs. "Often,
the boys are out on a job
"before 8*30 E.m. and some-
times remain until after

Of Pyrethrum
The Imache WKA farm
division will not undertake
the raising of pyrethrum
this year, ns previously
announced, according to a
decision recently made by
WHA Director Dillon S.Myer.
It was felt that the
production of s.u"bRistence
crops will utilize most of
the available manpower in
the center this year, and
that a long-range project
such as growing pyrethrum
should not undertaken*

^vVe, the students and teachers of the Amache schoola^

our new flag pole, 'and to officially rstise the flag
that it shall fly in the days to come# May this flag
pole forever display the exciting beauty of our sym-
bolic flag as it ripples and flows in the stirring
breeze. Though it must now rise in a darkened sky
may it not fail to afford us comfort and courage with
its gentle stirrings from its lofty summit. May its
stars and stripes always, remind ua of the faith, hope,
unity, and strength for which it stands, end for which
men and women have given their lives and fortunes, and
for which we are again makiiig great sacrifices#
Let us all remember the pure meaning and the prom-
ise of the flag of the United States of America as it
rises to the crown of our dedicated flag pole.
MLet ua all join together and salute our flag:
"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United
States of America and to the Republic for which it
stands# One nation, indivisible, with liberty, and
