I attended Concordia Academy in Portland Oregon at that time a Lutheran boarding highschool A roommate from Idaho said he could remember begging for berries along the barbed wire fence of an internment camp there He would have been born in 1935 or 1936 and have been seven at the time of the internment I of course said Internment what internment In my senior year we played Hood River Highscool in football I believe it was the only game we won that year I would like to go back over their roster to see if any Japanese Americans played in that gameHood River has often been the stop off point on trips to see my brother in southwest Washington and on business trips to Pendleton Oregon One of my favorite seminary classmates also lived thereAt one time I was going to write an article on the internment and researched Oregon newspapers so I've been aware for some time that Hood River was a hotbed of anti Japanese feeling in Oregon and as it turns out in the entire countryWhile reading a hard copy I discovered this book is available as a free down load so I am going to finish it that way The reader knows how to pronounce the names correctly
