Letter to popular local radio reporter requests that he speak out against injustices perpetrated against Japanese-American citizens during World War II. Smith notes his responsibility for "the care of our 37 Japanese churches" states that he is concerned that church members are not being allowed to work in canneries in Sacramento by the union, and mentions that he thinks that the same problem is likely to occur in San Jose soon.
Smith, Frank Herron
