--W.R.A. Made to grant permanent camps, included “list of chores” so interns can get compensation.--
General Dewitt recommended for the evacuation of J.-U.S.A.
--This is what he thought about the Japanese.--
“The Japanese race is an enemy race and while many second and third generation Japanese born on United States soil, possessed of United States citizenship, have become ‘Americanized,’ the racial strains are undiluted. . ..
