Child 1: "Mr. Kato, goodbye."
Child 2: "Bye."
Mr. Kato: "Goodbye, be careful on your way home."
When Mr. Kato was seeing off the children returning home, the phone rang in the teachers' room. It was a call from the school's principal.
Principal: "Hello, is this Mr. Kato? I think at your branch school there's a blue-eyed doll that came from America long ago."
Mr. Kato: "Yes, there surely is."
Principal: "Today there was a phone call from a police officer. I was told to get rid of that doll. Since he's going to the school tomorrow to verify it, please dispose of it soon."
Mr. Kato: "OK, I understand. I'll burn the doll today."
Principal: "Please take care of it."
The phone call ended.
During that time Japan was fighting a terrible war with America. Therefore, many people said, "America is a devil! Don't use English! Destroy the dolls given by America!"
