Dec. 27, 1941: Tom Treanor says that some Japanese Americans are upset that Chinese Americans are wearing badges to indicate they aren’t Japanese.

Mrs. E.J. Horton writes about a “Japanese schoolboy who got mobbed” and Mrs. Dill Nance “says she knows of two markets in her area (Manhattan Beach) which have discharged Nisei boys in their vegetable departments.”

Dorothy Darling, a  “naughty personality in platinum,” is at the Follies.

Jimmie Fidler says:“Sophie Tucker’s spouse, Al Lackey, has just published a song titled “I Wouldn’t Be a Jap for All the Tea in China.” Very hummable.

    My favorite jaw-dropping WWII song is “Goodbye, Mamma, I’m Off to Yokohama,” which contains the lines,
    “A million fightin’ sons of Uncle Sam, if you please,
    Will soon have all those Japs right down on their Jap-a-knees!”

      Mine’s “Dig You Later (Hubba Hubba Hubba)”

      Say, whatever happened to the Japanese?
      Hmm a hubba-hubba-hubba, haven’t you heard?
      A hubba-hubba-hubba, slip me the word!
      I got it from a guy who was in the know
      It was mighty smoky over Tokyo!
      A friend of mine in a B-29 dropped another load for luck,
      As he flew away, he was heard to say:
      “A hubba-hubba-hubba yuk yuk!”

    No matter. I’m sure those cocky Junior High students got their talking down in Manzanar. (How do you get “Cocky” after Pearl Harbor?)

    I have a few North Hollywood yearbooks from the late 1930s, and there were many Japanese-American students in the schools. I’ve always wanted to track down what became of their lands and families. Many wanted to be farmers because their families were farmers.
