A rare survival from the first year of Japanese American internment during World War II. This is the third issue of the high school newspaper produced by the students at Tri-Lake High School inside the Tule Lake Relocation Center in Newell, California. The front page prints a blurb commemorating the tragedy of Pearl Harbor, followed by the usual combination of school news, gossip, "witticisms," calls for students to treat each other with kindness, a call for "Better Behavior in Study Halls," reports on stylistic "Fads and Fashions" (including the "Pokolau Haircuts"), and more. OCLC reports a smattering of issues at six institutions, almost all in California - the Hoover Institute, San Francisco Public Library, Stanford, UC-Davis, UC-Irvine, and the Clements Library.
