For men enlisting for 2 years
promotions will be one grade low-
erthan that of 3 to 5 year en-
listments*
The period of language train-
ing at MISLS will be 9 months

JULY 1947

(qEORGfE MASUNAQA
By now you all know that Min
Yasui is leaving our office* and
I would like to take this oppor-
tunity to try to thank him on
behalf of both the cabinet and
the members for all the work he
has done for us*
It is difficult to egress
the appreciation and gratitude
we all feel toward Min for the
invaluable help he has given to
all of us; for all the time he
has so unselfishly spent working
with us* and for all the assist-
ance and advice he has given us*
Those of us in the Cabinet
who have had the opportunity to
work with Min are especially
grateful to him for all the help
and direction he has so gener-
ously given us from those first
dark hours when the cabinet was
being reorganized*
While we say "thanks" to Min
and wish him the best of luok*we
also wish to welcome Roy Takeno
as he steps into the Tri-State
office to a job which is not an
enviable one* We pledge him our
support and wish him much suc-
cess*
zMtiatfa
another Lody Editor
tokes over
With some hesitancy we take
over responsibility of publish-
ing what is considered the "best
chapter bulletin"*
It will take some real doing
on our part to maintain the high
caliber of previous issues edit-
ed by Katie Kawamura and True
Yasui and their able staff.
It is a real pleasure, how-
ever* to take over a paper so
well liked as the DENVER BULLE-
TIN^
We newcomers* with the aid of
some standbys* will strive hard
to give you the news you want to
read*

Co opera t/on
In an active organization ev-
ery member contributes whatever
talents he has to make success'
ful any program the group under-
takes* The JACL is no exception.
To take the load off the in-
dividual member, the chapter
cabinet has planned a year* s pro-
gram. It has gone ahead and
done the heavy work1 by taking
care of details and making ne-
cessary arrangements. You, as
the individual member* are asked
to help from there by giving
your wholehearted cooperation*
Please show your support by
attending meetings* volunteering
your time when' it is asked for,
and making whatever other con-
tributions you can*
Right now we are asking you
to insure the success of the
winter raffle by purchasing tic-
kets or selling them to friends*
If each member will do his share
the burden will not fall on one
or two individuals as has hap-
pened in the past.

If you re wondering how well
Nisei are being accepted* take a
listen to this* We undertook a
2,000-mile reportorial junket
recently into Utah and southern
Idaho* The trip involved talk-
ing to everyone from one of Ida-
hos great industrial tycoons to
a ghost-town miner* to farmers
and produce shippers* to sheep
herders and sheep magnates* to
truckers, to newspapermen* and a
college president*
Not once could we detect even
a quizzical eyebrow when these
personalities first saw our Jap-
anese face* In fact they seemed
to take reporters with Japanese
faces for granted.
We experienced only courteous
and cooperative treatment--ail
that any reporter could ask for*
If youre looking for some-
thing different in entertainment
go to a show by the Piper Play-
ers at Idaho Springs* Theyre a
refreshing bunch of youngsters
with a high professional stand-
ard, who are acting for the love
of acting.
They sleep on army cots in
dormitories* do their ;own cook-
ing and washing* and have a tho-
roughly good time although they
certainly arent getting rich.
The performances are staged
at the Idaho SpringB high school
Wednesday through Sunday evening
plus a 2:30 p.ra. matinee on Sun-
days* 3he price is 75 cents and
well worth it.
We too want to welcome Kichi
Ando, our new editor, who has
also talrpn over a somewhat thank
less job, and we want to thank
her for her willingness to as-
sume the responsibility for the
publication of the Bulletin.
