As I sat in the bleachers watching the dancing on the floor below it was impressed upon me how American it all was. .; "Here were Japanese, Hawaiians, Portuguese, Filipinos along with soldiers of all races and creeds from the United States and sailors, seabees and marines (officers and enlisted men.) "Music was being furnished by an unsually good service dance band of some 25 pieces playing ballads, swing swaltzes and rhum- bas. · ·' i "There are other evidences in a steady stream, such as great sports fields spreading the doctrine of American sports and good sportsmanship; also the local volunteer organizations which actually operate without thinking of whether they'll be highly publicized; too, the local volunteer guards consisting of Japanese, Hawaiian*, Portuguese and Filipinos: and, of coarse, most of all r news bulletins of loyal Japanese volunteers dying in action for the allies.
