Tule Lake Center Operation to Continue for Short Time

The period of residence for evacuees remaining at Tule Lake Center will be extended for a short time beyond February 1 in order to permit the Department of Justice to complete its review of the program still under consideration in Washington, Harry L. Black, Acting Project Director, announced today.

Ivan Williams, representative of the Department of Justice at this center, stated that arrangements are being made for a ship to transport several hundred voluntary repatriates to Japan during the month of February. A total of 7100 repatriates were removed during November and December.

After the status of all Tule Lake residents has been determined, Williams added, it is probable that a group will be removed to Department of Justice internment camps to await final disposition of their cases.

Black stated that WRA will continue during the month of February to assist in the relocation of those persons at the center who are not under Department of Justice detention orders.

Official announcement of continuance for the time being of WRA services to evacuees at Tule Lake Center in cooperation with the Department of Justice and to allow the Justice Department to complete its determination of status of all residents, was made by Black in the absence of R. R. Best, Project Director, who is inspecting WRA relocation facilities on the West Coast.
