Summary: This correspondence addresses the possibility of moving Japanese Americans to Kansas to serve as laborers. In her letter to Shoeppel, Mrs. Mary Golden of Matfield Green, Kansas, argues that Japanese Americans should not be allowed to work in Kansas because of the way the Japanese military has treated American prisoners of war. In his reply to Mrs. Golden's letter, Governor Schoeppel explains that he is only doing what the federal government asks with regard to the Japanese Americans, and, if required, he will work with the U.S. Government "in utilizing American born Japanese labor on projects or in areas approved by your government, and my government officials."
