    Notes 
    • WOOLISCROFT, IN KOBE, WELL FED
      A radio message, confirming earlier reports that Everett B. Wooliscroft, formerly of Seattle, is alive and a prisoner of the Japanese, was recorded by the United Press listening post in San Francisco yesterday, the news agency reported.

      The message, from Wooliscroft to his father, David Wooliscroft, at Three Tree Point, said Wooliscroft, an engineer, was "safe and well."

      "I am safe and well in Kobe," the message asserted. "We are quartered in a large mansion surrounded by gardens and lawns. Ample quantities of excellent food are served us three times daily.

      Contact Pomeroy Company, 333 Montgomery St., San Francisco. We are all in good spirits and looking forward hopefully to the day we will be returned to our homes so that we may work for better understanding between American and Japanese people.

      "Do not worry or become discouraged because everything will turn out all right. Please inform Jean that this message is also intended for her."

      Wooliscroft was one of a number of engineers working on Guam when the island was taken by the Japs.

      The broadcast was one of four recorded by United Press. The three others were from William G. Johnston, Franklin, Tenn.; Charles F. Greggs, Los Angeles, ???? manager for Pan American Airways, and Harley Lucke, ????, Calif., all of whom were in Guam with Wooliscroft. [11]
