Heretofore the Japanese have employed passive resistance against doing any kind of manuel labor such as cleaning out ditches and certain construction jobs. An observer close to the labor problem there has told a United Press representative that the work was being stepped up .for the benefit of reporters. As he puts it—"the colonists know you're here and they're going to he bnsy while you're here." The observer said the colonists don't like certain types of manual labor, and it it is forced on them they apply passive resistance and sit down with a smile. - • He mentioned as an example an auditorium which has been under construction since January and has progressed only as far as the foundation blocks. Thirty-five nurses aides ol the colony went on a strike which.last- jcd a week before llicir grievances were settled. 'Hie competition for white collar jobs is very keen, and many of-the stenographers and office assistants are college graduates. Sixty per cent of the evacuees are Ncsci-or citizens of the United states by birth—and feel that they are being held prisoners in their o\vn country. Officials of the War Relocation Authority emphasize that the centers are not. concentration camps. They are snpixiscd to serve merely to care for Ihe evacuees until they can be relocated in jobs and homes in olher states. mam FLEET FURIOUSLY HI HULK'S'HEEL' Bui Big Invasion Anlicipat- cd By Axis Fails To Ik- come 'Reality By llnllnl I'rfss The greatest puck of American Ubeuitor bombers ever used by Hie MIddlc-l'.iiHt Cuiiinmnd has torn three new chunks mil of Ihe Iliillan hool.
