This is contained online in the Hawaii War Records Depository, accessible through the University of Hawaii website.

WAR RECORD #657
DESCRIPTION: Rubber (Japanese). Mr. Turner of Standard Oil with scrap rubber from a Japanese submarine.
HWRD DATE: 8-Jul-42 (Date on back of photo.)
NEWSPAPER: SB
NEWSPAPER PUBL DATE: 10 Jul 1942
NEWSPAPER CAPTION: JAPANESE RUBBER, TOO: The Japanese didn't know it when they raided Pearl Harbor December 7, but they began then and there contributing to the Salvage for Victory (rubber) drive in Honolulu. Kenneth Hnutsen, Honolulu surveyor, that day at the harbor picked up two mementoes of the outbreak of war--a long, thin strip or gasket, used to stop the door of a Japanese submarine; and a small vibration absorber used in a Nippon plane. He has given these to the local Salvage for Victory committee, whose chairman, D.W. Turner, is shown here with examining them appreciatively. The Salvage for Victory drive officially ends today, but actually rubber donations will still be accepted--with thanks.
