(Yasui was a Portland man who decided to test the constitutionality of the curfew by intentionally breaking it and walking into a police station to be arrested.) Hirabayashi writes, "With the decision concerning the Yasui case in Portland plus tendencies of the W.R.A. there is much for us to be hopeful and expectant about. I hope that by next summer, the camps will be diminished in size by a half." Hirabayashi also discusses life in jail and some of his visitors. He asks Mrs. Ring if she knows any news of peace or armistice since he heard various rumors concerning the matter. less
