He is carving names out of wood, that is if he lives in any of Camp Harmony's four areas. Carving names out of wood has become the current hobby of the 'haba-haba' boys, and also boys that are not 'haba-haba.'
Virtually every boy with a whittling urge and a boy scout knife is now engaged in carving his or his girl's name out of wood. There is a rumor that in Area A, one boy has even gnawed at a piece of timber until it resembled -- Masakatsu.
The usual procedure followed by the 'little shavers' is selection, whittling, sandpapering and finishing. Selection of wood is important. According to veteran whittlers, the wood must be soft, easy to cut, and even grained. Whittling depends upon the skill of the individual. Some unique and intricate names have been wrought out of a hunk of kindling, while on the other hand some names look like a hunk of kindling.
Due to numerous requests to shellac the names, the Area D Art department has been forced to hang up the 'No More Shellac' sign. Art Head Moe Naito says "They finished the finish."
Popular names amongst the ambitious woodpeckers are Mich, Heidi, Sachi, Kazzie, Hicky, Yoshi and Akiko. These names take the shape of plain block lettering, names on hearts and names on arrows.
Names are not the only things being carved. George Minato of D has whittled himself a ball and chain out of wood. According to George it signifies married life.
A family shall be considered as the father and mother and all children who have not passed their 16th birthday, the WCCA declared.
Coupon books will be issued only to persons considered as heads of families and to those considered as individuals (bachelors).
It was pointed out by WCCA officials that requests for lowering of commodity prices to wholesale level were considered but denied due to the fact that the free coupon books would compensate for retail prices at the canteen.
"But if I can help win the war with my posters," he said, "then I'll draw as many as they'll let me."

Commencing June 15, the Sacramento assemble center evacuees were transferred to Tulelake at the rate of 500 a day. Their movements were completed yesterday. Upwards of 4,800 Japanese were involved.
Meanwhile, the Western Defense Command still failed to indicate when the Puyallup Assembly Center evacuees would begin their trek to the relocation center.
Early this month, Col. Karl R. Bendetsen, of Gen. DeWitt's civil affairs staff, had announced that Camp Harmony was among those assembly centers slated for relocation at the Tulelake colony.
The population of Tulelake, after the Marysville assembly center is incorporated, will stand at 8,600. Capacity of the center is 16,000, although some quarters indicated construction under way would accommodate upwards of 19,000 people.
The schedule, which went into effect on June 22, sets visiting hours as between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. daily.
"The selection and orderly movement of the visitors," McGovern explained, "is assumed by the Japanese Area Councils."
It was added that continuation of the scheduled movements, which are to be conducted by the Interior Security Patrol, will depend upon the manner in which the privilege is used.
Camp residents desiring to avail themselves of visiting privileges are to apply at their Area Headquarters.
The complete schedule, copies of which have been posted on Area bulletin boards, is as follows:
Date Area No. ---- ---- --- June 22 A to D 50 23 B to D 25 24 C to D 17 25 D to A 50 26 A to B 50 27 B to A 25 28 C to A 17 29 D to B 50 30 A to C 50 July 1 B to C 25 2 C to B 17 3 D to C 50 4 RepeatPage 4
In the first feature of the afternoon, fathers oiled their creaking bones and challenged their offspring to a game of softball. Though the outcome was never in doubt, the sons were given a real scare in the last canto, when the hitherto dormant "pops" suddenly sprang to life and proceeded to ring up eight runs. Final count was 9-8.
The majority of the oldsters were dads 45 and over. Such old-timers as Ishibashi, Ota, K. Arai, Obazawa, Yoshino, Kimura, Anky Arai, C.T. Arai, and Tsuboi were numbered in its roster.
A woodenface competition was also held between the dads and sons with son Munato Nezu racking up 24 strikeouts to win. Mr. Yoshino saved the day for the fathers when he came in second with a final score of 23 strikeouts.
In the first game, the "Administrative Big-Wigs" took on the 12 to 15 years old "All-Stars" led by Shoji Kanegawa and promptly shellacked the youngsters 9 to 5.
Then elated over their first victory, the "Big-Wiggers" challenged Sumio Nagamatsu's "Boiler-Boys." A dignified umpire in the personage of Leo Kanogawa with his age-old "respect for the elders" adage proved a huge asset to the "Big-Wigs."
Shoichi Suyama, however, came to bat with the bases loaded for the "Boiler-Boys" and slammed the ball high and beyond mess hall No. 1. Thanks to Suyama's Ruthian clout, the "Boiler-Boys" emerged a 4 to 1 winner. Tom Okazaki pitched for the victors.
WEDNESDAY SCORES 'B' Old-Timers-3, 'A' Old-Timers-1 'B' Old-Timers-6, 'A' Old-Timers3Spurred by the success of last week's Areas A and B softball melees, two more inter-area double-headers were slated for A's Pitcher Field this week.
On Wednesday, an old-timers team from Area B journeyed across the way to appear in a twin bill. Numbering 25 strong, they included such ox-stars as K. Takeyoshi, T. Takeyoshi, F. Nagamine, Jack Ito, Tad Yoshida, D. Yoshioka, K. Kondo, Flax Sao, Roy Sakamoto, M. Yanagimachi, Linc Beppu, and Grant Beppu.

The invading squad from C includes such luminaries as Shoichi Suyama, George Okamura, Tom Okazaki, Shoji Kanogawa, George Nakagawa, Tomeo Fujii, Tak Shibuya, Andy Hasegawa, Isao Okazaki, Mas Yamauchi, Shig Urakawa, Kay Kihara, Noboru Nakagawa, Shinji Kozu, Shiro Iwana, Fred Aoki, Mas Fujii, Frank Nakano, Mun Iwamoto, Warren Hasegawa, Noboru Suyama, R. Kanogawa, Sumio Nagamatsu, Tsuneo Hidaka and Kaun Onodera.
The home squad banged the horse-hide mercilessly to gain a easy 18-6 decision in the first game. A big eight run uprising in the second canto proved to be the invaders' undoing. Hank Fukano's sparkling stickwork paced the winners while Augie Aratani blasted a round-tripper for the B team.
Area A's Section 5 squad made use of 14 walks issued by B hurlers Yosh Tsuji and S. Ogasawara to hammer out a close 9 to 7 win in the nightcap. After a wild first inning which saw the invaders pound out six runs, "A" flinger Frank Kanemori settled down while his teammates came back in the third to notch up eight runs on seven walks plus a couple of singles.
