C. nane- l'.y HIITI'V iM NilA Staff Ciiri-fsjioiiilriit WASHIN'G'I ON.~Unusual secrecy .shrouded the arrival of u heavily loaded troop convoy from Hawaii this month. Crowding (he decks were ^800 soldiers, silently watching the outline of America loom out of the fog. Ninety percent of these men never hud seen flio land Ihey'il pledged (heir lives to defend. They were Japanese- Americans. The story of the convoy trip across 2,500 miles of water, and of secret train embarkations to their irniuiiij; camp at Kurt Shelby. Miss., was described by a young officer who accompanied Ihe Jap- aiicfc-Atuericaii soldiers from Honolulu, lie Is Capt. Ajnslcy Mahlkoa, recent visitor in Washington. IIIK! a firm believer in Hie lovnlty of the Nisei, "The boys were all volunteers, froiii i-ane fields, wluwls, defense jobs. They svere selected from 8000 Japanese men who signed up," Capt. Mahikoa said. "They weren't very good sailor.i —most of them were seasick — but they turned out to be excellent soldiers. They obey commands without complaint, their minds seem to slip automniirally into military patterns of living."' HAD MON'J'.V AT h'lKST On the trip across, Capt. M.ihl- ko.i i''.'call(.<! that many of the buck privates ware loaded with money earned at lucrative defense jobs at Pearl Harbor and other military areas. Tneir cr.ip gaoii'S often netted si.fiw; puts. They tip- (X'd lavishly. Once ahoartl a troop Irain, they threw coins down on the heads of passes-shy. On arrival in port Capt. Mahikoa. was unable to phone his wife from ivlwin he'd been separated for three years. She lived only four blocks away. Secrecy was essential and the Japanese-Americans carried their dtilllc baps from boat, to train under cover of warkness. He said: "They weren't allowed off the train. We were afraid of what- might happen if people kuc-w about. 2P.OO Japanese being in the vicinity. Once 1 was asked by people at a station what nutkmlahy tin. 1 boys were. 1 told 'ej)i these were crack troops fro m 'Jhiung Kai Slick's army, here for training!" Oapt Aimh'v .Mahikoa. above, helped bring 2SI1C Japanese-Americans h> the U. .S. \Vhcn train porters asked '.he .soldiei's tliemsejves, tl\e answer was always' "Hav. : :iiian-bnrn Americans. 1 " A trifle homesick, they all wore paper leis, sang island .songs to ukelelc accompaniment on the trip to camp. Most of them speak a pidgin English, familiar in Hawaii, but their jargon baffled the officers in charge at Shelby. They went crazy over candy liars, and one biicK private sent a porter out with S50 lo buy up the station. • EDSON IN WASHINGTON Employment After The War Hv i'irn:i!
