California IN BRIEF : WATSONVILLE : Japanese Students Aid Quake Victims

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Led by a World War II Japanese fighter pilot, 34 students arriving fresh from Tokyo to help California earthquake victims raised their fists and cheered three times, "We will do our best!" Then they pitched in at a Salvation Army relief center Thursday, packing food boxes, sorting clothing and putting together sacks of baby supplies. The students flew to California at their own expense to help 3,000 victims displaced in the Watsonville area by the Oct. 17 earthquake.
