In this letter to Senator Arthur Capper, Kansas State College of Agriculture and Applied Science professor Ada Rice explains that her brother in Manilla has seen many U.S. civilians who had been in Japanese prison camps during the war. Asserting that they need assistance from the U.S. Government, Rice asks Senator Capper to vote for House Resolution 1823, a bill introduced by Congressman Carl Hinshaw of California that provided money to former U.S. civilian prisoners of war.
