He is married and has one child. His family lives in San Diego. Phillip's letter, written on Okinawa and dated April 19, says in part: . . Island Quaint and Beautiful "This island is quite a place. It is the nearest thing to Japan Itself, so I am told. The island is quaint and 'beautiful in spite of 'being all torn up from shelling and bombing. The people look very much dike Japs, are very small'ln stature and dress like the Jap peasants you see in the movies. They are principally farmers and very primitive. Their fields arc small plots about like a good sized garden back home and are all worked toy hand. They are terraced into the gradual slope of the •hill sides, which slope up from the water. Their principal crops are cabbage, sweet potatoes, beans, carrots and a little wheat. I have seen a few rice paddies but rice doesn't seem to be so popular here. They raise quite a few hogs and I guess that's the reason for the wheat. Their main food is pork and sweet potatoes, supplemented by all sorts of fish and sea food.

They bury their dead in concrete vaults hewn out of the rocks in the hill sides. When a person dies the body is placed in a wooden box in a sitting position and then placed in a vault. They leave it there for a period of three years after which there is little left but the skeleton. They take what remains out and purify the bones In alcohol and then place them in huge porcelain urns and stack them back in the vault. Every year they hold ceremonies inside the vault, something like our memorial day, I guess. Man Is the Big: Shot "They are like the Japs in that man is the boss and the women are little more than slaves. They bow to you every time you turn around. I guess they learned that from the Japs, too. They are filthy in their living habits and they keep their live stock practically in the same room In their miserable shtfftks.
