ML COMMENDED
IN APPRECIATION:
In this, the final issue of
the "DENVER JACL BULLET IP under
the editorship of True Yasui, it
is only fitting that I, as pres-
ident, express my gratitude in
behalf of the Denrer Chapter.
It has been a pleasure to re-
oeive the "Bulletin" every month
but it has only been thru the
unstinting efforts of the editor
and her staff that we hare been
privileged to enjoy this publi-
cation.
Starting this year with the
1947 cabinet, and an enlarged
sheet, her period of editorship
has been an arduous one.
I wonder how many of you re-
alise the time and effort really
required of an editor in prepa-
ration of materials for these
monthly editions?
Our oablnet officers often
have had the privilege of peek-
ing over True's shoulders to see
her working assiduously; all the
way from preparing copy, getting
the stories and features, page
make-up, writing heads for in-
scription by the artist, adjust-
ing lay-outs for art work and
photos. Friends, that is plain
hard work!
It is with a great deal of
pleasure that I oan state that
our DENVER JACL BULLETIN has and
is aoolalmed as the best ohapter
publication in the United States
of Amerioa!
I feel as Colton did as he
onoe so truly said, "No meta-
physician ever felt the defici-
ency of language so much as the
grateful."
"Thanks" I oan express but so
little at times. And yet, we do
appreoiate very much True's in-
spiring and unrelenting leader-
ship.
"We'll miss you very much,
True. We thank you a million
for your untiring efforts!"
But, to our readers, we give
reassurance that the publica-
tion Of the DENVER JACL BULLETIN
shall go on.
Whenever I have the chance to
do so I always recommend two
books to my friends. They are
both by the same author, D. Elt-
on Trueblood, who is the Profes-
sor of Philosophy of Religion at
Stanford University. The first
one' is "The Predicament of Mod-
ern Man." The other is "Founda-
tions for Reconstruction."
No one needs to be told today
that there is something wrong in
the world, something so wrong
that unless we get it mended
pretty quickly it will be too
late. Few of us need to be told
that that wrong is in the area
of human relations. That means
the trouble is within us. It is
a spiritual thing primarily and
YE EDITOR SEZ WE
After a struggling start in
Kay, 1946, under the editorship
of Katie Kawamura, the Denver
JACL Bulletin has achieved rec-?
ognitidh as the most outstanding
A CL paper in the U. 3,
This accomplishment was due
to the assiduous work of loyal
staff workers, many of whom have
already ceased connections with
our paper.
Ben luiyahara, Merijane Yokoe,
and others have assisted in the
development of this bulletin..
And now, True Yasui as editor
and Hin Yasui bid- farewell to
the Bulletin. Sab Tani who made
the distinctive heads for us al-
so leaves the paper.
However, our steadfast stand-
bys, Rosa Higashi, Bill Hosokawa
and Kami Kataglri will continue
their unique contributions. And
the Denver JACL Chapter cabinet
has assumed responsibility for
future publication.
And so, your editor, now bids
farewell and good luck to the
Denver JACL Bulletin.

the material circumstances wait
upon those inner motives and
purposes. It is that inner life
that we have lost sight of in
the romantic discovery of the
wonders of our physical world.
We are afraid of each other,
and the one great answer to fear
is faith. We have an unbounded
faith in physical achievement
but we are afraid of our own a-
chievements because we have lost
faith in ourselves and in others.
We are eager for education as
never before, and one only needs
to go to one of our universities
to see the hunger for knowledge,
but it is not matched by any
great hunger for righteousness
or faith in a high purpose.
We have come through a des-
perate war that we said was a
war against physical force, the
The Tri-State and Denver JACL
offices have been commended for
their support of HR 2768 (evacu-
ation claims) and HR2933 (de-
portation bill). Nat'l HQ and
Uasaoka request continued sup-
port when the naturalization is-
sue comes up for hearing before
Congress.
MEMBERSHIPS LAG-
NEED RENEWALS!!!
Last year, under the presi-
dency of Dr. T. Mayeda, and with
the special efforts of Yoshiko
Ariki, membership chairman, the
Denver JACL maintained its rank
as'the largest JACL chapter in
the United States.
We had 388 members in 1946.
This year it has dropped to 256.
We were FIRST in *46, and now we
are FIFTH in*rank.
Let's renew our JACL member-
ships! Get your friends to Join
JACL. More than 100 old members
will put us in a fight with Chi-
cago with 308 members for the
crown as the BIGGEST and BEST!
and when it is really oxay, I
say 'sharp sharp'.
I was surprised the other day
to have Tosh Yatsushiro walk in-
to this office. It seems that
he is here to stay.
Frankly, I think you have a
better organized chapter there.
For one thing, the people in LA
are so scattered about and every
one seems so busy with their own
personal affairs. Just like Den-
ver used to be. I've been boast
ing about Denver Chapter, and
the publication to both Joe Ma-
saoka in S F. and to Eiji and
Scotty here. They all agree
with me tho' or do you think
they're Just being polite? Joe
is the same fellow, always seems
so bubbling over with his work.
Unfortunately, tho, I did not
get a chance to see Mary-Ann,

phone

good. Do drop a line when you

power of coercion, but we have
no great faith in the power of
persuasion, spiritual power.
We need faith. Morality and
spiritual awareness have grown
from the roots of religion. Most
people do not believe it, but I
am convinced that the most urg-
ent problem of our time is the
spiritual problem. The Kingdom
is within us whether it is the
Kingdom of God or the Kingdom of
evil, /Biether our material ci-
vilization is blessing or curse,
depends upon our spiritual char-
acter.
Yve do not know whether we
have the atom bomb or whether it
has us. No external freedoms
will be of much use unless our
spirits are free. We can't have
peace in a world of men who are
at war v/ithin themselves. We
want to start everywhere but
within ourselves, and that is
the one place where the start
would be significant. Life is
forever deteriorating at its
center and we are always trying
to do something about it at its
fringes.
Our problem is spiritual.
.Vhen v;e realize that we will
have started, at least, towards
a solution.

THE CRITICS CORNER.
-UosoImJa.
So Denver has a new mayor and
you helped elect him* Or did
you?
There's been a lot said about
the political lethargy of Nisei,
but no one thought it was qui^i
so bad until they checked the
rolls of registered voters* They
found only a handful registered
out of perhaps a thousand eligi-
ble*
But your one little voteor
a thousandwouldn't have had an
onnoe of influence on that ter-
rific landslide that swept Ben
Stapleton out and Quigg Newton
into office?
Maybe not, as it turned out*
But it might have been oloae*
Your vote, and the vote of 999
other Nisei, might have made a
difference. Maybe it will next
time, whether or not you vote as
a bloc.
Besides, there's that matter
of exorcising your birthright,
the right to oast a ballot* Good
men have died fighting for that
privilege*
Also there's an intangible
little matter whloh might be
termed the sense of belonging*
Are you Just marking time
here, Just making a living until
there's an opportunity to drift
elsewhere?
Or are you a Denverite, in-
terested in your oily's progress,
in better government, better
streets and parks and sohools, s
better return in service for
each tax dollar you fork over?
All these matters affqot you
and your pooketbook if you're
more than a oasual passerby* And
one way in which you oan help to
shape the ocuree of affairs as
you would like to see them is by
making your wishes known through
your vote*
Many Denverites today are ex-
periencing a wave of exhilara-
tion as a result of the eleotion
results* They see a brave, new
fhture for the city under a new
young executive surrounded by a
cabinet well fortified with pro-
gressive ideas*
Whether Mayor Newton succeeds
in making good the hopes of the
great majority which voted him
in office will affect each Nisei
as oltizene of this olty*
And you as voters oan have a
voioe in supporting his program
and encouraging him, or opposing
his intentionswhich it is your
privilege to doby making your
wishes known*

OBEDIENCE OF RULES
The Tri-State JACL office has
ascertained from the Colorado"
Game and Fish Commission that
alien fishing lioenses are ob-
tainable for Japanese residents
of Colorado at *3.00.
Min Yasui, Tri-State Regional
Representative, urges all Japan-
ese Issei fishermen to scrupu-
lously observe the rules and re-
gulations regarding sport fish-
ing in Colorado. A printed book
of rules has been issued*
In general, the law provides
that no fish less tuan 6 inches
may be taken; that the limit for
trout is 20 fish per day or not
more than 10 pounds of fish per
day, whichever is smaller; and
the hours of fishing are from
4:00a.m. to 8:30 p.m^
The JACL office is particu-
larly anxious' tiiat the Japanese
Issei shall obey the laws and
not abuse the privilege, so that
tnere will be no agitation to
revoke this privilege in the
next session of the State Legis-
lature.

It is with lingering regret
that The Bulletineer takes leave
of this sheet after 13 oonseou-
tive issues, to make way for new
blood. We've seen this paper as
an infant and seen it grow,
Ah well! To go with our usu-
al small talk we note that
our genial GEORGE IURUTA emceed
a swank JACL ball in LA on May
30th, The maestro is in there
pitching; and speaking of pitch-
ing, FURUTA joined the hole-in-
one fame by canning one on the
17th hole at Willis Case the o-
ther day.
The JACL standard joined the
celebration of I AM AN AMERICAN
DAY" on the 18th, headed by our

citizenship under the Cable Act.
DU sociology students invaded
the Manchu Grill for a Japanese
dinner on May 15th to continue
studies on "Japanese American
Contributions to American Life."
SAB TANI gave a talk on art, and
