DUC SUPPORTS
JACL LEGISLATION
Over-riding an objection for
further study and referral to
committee before taking formal
action, the Denver Unity Council
at its Policy Board meeting on
May 6 adopted a resolution en-
dorsing the adoption of the JACL
ADC national legislative program
by the United States Congress.
Urgency of time, in view of
the recess of the 80th Congress
on or before July 31, 1947 was
stressed by Min Yasui, JACL Tri-
State representative, who pre-
sented the resolution.
Emphasing injusti ce of a nat-
ure lizati on law that prevents
parents of 20,000 Nisei soldiers
who fought in the war from be-
coming American citizens, and by
pointing to Issei who aided the
war effort by teaching in mili-
tary intelligence schools, Yasui
urged adoption of the resolution.
Dr. Charles Fujisaki and SMg
Imamura will serve as co-chair-
men for the occasi on, it was an-
nounced by President George Mas-
unaga of the local chapter. The
Nisei physician-surgeon served
in the China-Burma-India theater
while Mr. Imamura saw service in
the Pacific theater.
Cooperating with the JACL in
the program are Kevs. Y. Tamai,
N. Teunoda, S. Uemura, K. Sasaki
Russell Nakata, and Robert V.
Gildner. As the Bulletin goes
to press, the co-chairmen's com-
mittee was scheduled to make fi-
nal preparations for the serv-
ice.

Concerning oar City Election
May 20th.
NISEI/// VOTE
ON MAY 20/6/
In order to aoquaint readers j
of the Denver JACL Balletin with I
the mayoral oandidates of Denver
we present the following state-
ments submitted by eaoh candi-
date.
comtmmmis
THE CRITICS CORNER.
kf$il/-UosolmJa.
One of the most heartening e-
vents to come out of the war is
the growing realization among
many Americans that this oountry
must praotioe as well as preach
demooraoy.
On the higher levels there
|re red faces among diplomats
every time some foreign spokes-
an points to the Amerioan hand-
ing of its minorities as an ex-
.mple of inconsistenoy to pro-
'essed ideals.
The old desire to achieve and
to improve the community should
seize every ardent man and woman
today*
Whether you are a Mexioan,
Negro, Irishman, Jew, or a Nisei
one of you are an integral part
of the community. It is your
stern duty to assume the respon-
sibility of your respective com-
munity, and it should be a com-
mand to your conscience to bring
about just soolal conditions*
This can be brought about or
attained only by full partici-
pation and cooperation with your
fellow man in civio affairs.
Tour inherent super-natural
impatience with conditions now
existing inheritance or heri-
tage of prevailing wrong and in-
justice should make you scorn-
ful, and you must insist upon a
strenuous and vital change to
remedy the iniquity that exists*
your aotive participation at
the polls on May 20 th may not be
a panacea for all the ills of
the community, but it certainly
will be a definite step towards
the fulfillment or accomplish-
ment of your insistent desires.
Therefore, as an Amerioan
CITIZEN it is your duty to ful-
fill your obligation on May 20*
On this page you will find
indorsements from all the candi-
dates. The Japanese American
Citizens League does not oare
how you vote, but be sure to
oast your ballot* In short, "If
you don't vote; don't squawk::;;
Just a reminderdon't forget
our Memorial Day Service on May
30th* A oommunlty-wide joint
service will be heLd at the 01-
vio Auditorium at 11;00 a*m.,
sponsored by the JAGL. Remem-
ber that these services are be-
ing held to honor the memories
of our gallant Nisei soldiers.
THOU MORRISSEY
By his reoord as U. 3, Dist-
rict Attorney for nearly four-
teen years, Thomas J* Morrissey
has proven that he is unalter-
ably opposed to every form of
discrimination against racial
minorities.
In his platform as candidate
for mayor, he made this pledge:
"Under my administration there
will be equal job opportunities
for ail, regardless of raoe, oo-
lor or oreed, and equal protect-
ion for minority groups under
the law* As District Attorney
my door always was open to every
one and as mayor it will remain
open*
Oandidates for Mayor, arrang-
ed in alphabetical order, are
depicted on this page*
Two candidates, Clarence U*
Stafford, and J* Leon Miohaelson
have withdrawn* Miohaelson in
withdrawing from the race, end-
orsed Quigg Newton's oandidaoy.
We do not make any political
endorsements, buA urge all Nisei
voters to oarefully consider the
qualifications of the candidates
and exercise their Amerioan pri-
vilege to vote in the ooming e-
lection on May 20th.

mum Dietrich
"I am opposed to discrimina-
tion of minority groups and na-
turally this includes the Japa-
nese, the Japanese-Amerloans, as
well as the Negro, Mexioan and
Jewish people.
I pledge myself to v/ork for a
local PEPC ordinance which would
prevent such discrimination and
help the minority groups in se-
curing employment outside of the
menia1 occupations whioh are u-
sually assiged to them*"
j. qum NEWTON
"My program for Denver is to
bring non-partisan, non-politic-
al government based on service
to all and special privilege to
none to the oity...
My 13-point program includes
Oivio Unity with the proposal to
set up a Mayor's Committee on
Human Relations; Open Government
so that the people may be kept
informed about the business of
the oity; overhauling the Health
Dept, and the police force, with
raolal minorities to be repre-
sented on the former; redevelop-
ment of blighted areas; effici-
ent city management and city
purchasing; a study of traffic
problems and a full recreation
program*"
JUDGE WmA BLACK
"It will be my avowed purpose
to effect a spiritual rebirth in
Denver Oity Govt to the end that
all the people of Denver, with-
out regard to race, oolor or
oreed, will know that their gov-
ernment is dedicated to an effi-
cient, honest, impartial admin-
istration in the public inter-
est, and that all citizens, re-
gardless of raoe, color or creed
will have an equal opportunity
in its voice and service; and to
seoure for them their natural,
essential and inalienable rights
among whioh they may reckon the
right of enjoying and defending
their lives and property, acqui-
ring, possessing and protecting
property, and of seeking and ob-
taining their safety and happi-
ness*"
MAYOR BENE STAPLETON
"Since our free and demo ora t-
io -form of government needs the
participation of all citizens
it is with gratitude and heart-
felt thanks that I, as the Mayor
of Denver, acknowledge the aid
of the Japanese-Amerioan popula-
tions*
We are all v/orklng together
to keep this the finest oity in
the world* With your help we
will be suooessful* May I con-
gratulate you on your civic
pride and your contributions to
our way of life?
Closer to home, there ere
tundry ohurches, labor organiza-
tions, servioe groups, educators
\nd others who are concerning
themselves with the race problem
Ln America* Strangely enough,
oost of them are concerned more
vith re-educating their own peo-
ple on racial' issues than in
trying to "elevate" the status
of suoh minority groups as Ne-
groes, Japanese Americans and
Spanish Americans*
This, it seems, is a new and
welcome taok* Up to recently,
the emphasis was on uplift of
the minorities, in the hope they
would thus become acceptable to
the Caucasians*
But no matter how profioient
the darker-skinned Americans be-
oame in their table manners and
other social niceties; no matter
how they raised their cultural
and educational level, they were
held down by the refusal of the
whites to accept them in other
than menial capaoitles or with a
patronizing air*
Now, there is a realization
among the experts that the white
people themselves have been liv-
ing in highly segregated oircum-
stanoes, that they must be re-
educated and prepared to welcome
non-whites into their ohurohes,
businesses and social organiza-
tions*
This realization that these
problems are two-headed, and a
mutual one, strikes us as a very
healthy trend* Those of the ma-
jority seem to be aware for the
first time how few of their num-
ber oan, for instance, go into a
Negro gathering and feel com-
pletely at ease in their midst*
The other side of the problem
oan soaroely be ignored by the
Nisei, however* How many Nisei,
for instance, are prepared emo-
tionally and from a social stand
point, to move in completely non
Nisei circles?
