ways of fighting discrimination
by exchanging mutually useful,
and beneficial press copy.
The representatives present
agreed that a job equally im-
portant as that of educating the

THE DENVER JACL BULLETIN
NOVEMBER 1947

Sdttotiof'Pii
Mark this date, Friday. Nov-
ember 21 on your calendar. It
is an important one. Your Den-
ver Chapter is holding a general
election meeting that evening,
at 8 p.m. at the Nihonjinkai
hall to select officers for 1948.
Please do come to make your
nominations and to cast your
ballot. It is very important
that a good hard-working cabinet
be chosen for next year's acti-
vities.
In the first place, the ADC
jm Washington will still need
lots of support and help. JACL
officers will have to take the
iniative in raising funds, edu-
cating the people, and promoting
the cause in other ways.
Secondly, the biennial nat-
ional JACL convention will be
held in Salt Lake City sometime
next summer. We want to send
capable leaders of whom we can
be proud.
So for the sake of selecting
a good cabinet for 1948, do come
out to vote. Many people sly
away when it comes to voting,
but this should not be. You can
show your interest in the JACL
work by coming to this meeting
and making your choice. The 1947
officers have tried to put on a
good program this year. By your
presence you can show them your
appreciation of the work they
have done too.
The ADC drive to raise funds
is still going strong. On Nov-
ember 50 and December 5 two be-
nefit parties are being given by
two local organizations to raise
funds.
The young lady who has been
the sparkplug of this drive is
"Mike" Kawai. She wants to wind
up her work with a "bang" before
heading west. You can read more
about her in the editorial to
the right.
Next week comes Thanksgiving.
Those of us who are conscious of
starving peoples all over the
world will probably pause in the
midst of our sumptuous dinner
and wonder what they're eating.
We all ought to be mighty
grateful that we live in a land
of plenty compared to others.
A SWELL. GAL---
"MIKE" KAWA/
Brown-haired "Mike" Kawai
likes to be considered one of us
a Nisei. And well she might
be for she speaks a fine Japan-
ese that most of us can envy and
goes for och&zuke Just as we do.
Those of us who have had the
pleasure of knowing this Boston
girl In the few months she has
been In Denver have been Im-
pressed with her genuine inter-
est in JACL activities*
At the present time nMlken Is
very actively engaged as chair-
man of the local ADC drive* She
has spent countless hours send-
ing out literature, addressing
groups and doing everything pos-
sible to promote the ADC program.
For the excellent Job she is
doing, we'd like to toss her an
extra large bouquet.
"Mike" leaves in the not too
distant future for San Francisco
from which port she will sail
for Japan to Join her husband,
William Kawai, in Tokyo. Bon
voyage, "Mike", we'll miss youl

CRITIC'S
CORNER
by Sill HosokatrtL
With apologies to some of the
advertisers of this Journal, we
shall discourse this month on
two places to eat, both of which
we discovered lately.
One is a Greek restaurant
which serves wonderful lamb stew
rich, savory and tasty. Mix
some of their steamed rice with
it and you have a dish worth
going back for.
The second place features
Swedish pancakes which are serv-
ed on hot, covered plates with
good syrup and two pats of real
butter, plus coffee, plus your
choice of ham, bacon or sausage.
All for 50 cents. The pancakes
are light, thin and golden-brown,
a thing of beauty both to see
and to taste.
Neither is in what might be
considered the high rent dis-
trict, but both cater to an or-
dinary as well as a genteel cli-
entele. Both, it is obvious,
thrive because they serve high
quality food.
Since this column is expected
to provide a moral, we submit
the following bit of unoriginal
philosophy: You cannot Judge
the contents of a box from its
trimmings, nor the worth of a
man from his appearance.
And it pays to scratch a bit
below the surface. We'd have
missed out on lamb stew a la
Athens and Swedish pancakes if
we had been squeamish about get-
ting under the grease.
The point we want to get over
is that neither of these restau-
rants is a pretentious place..
The first looks a little greasy
and foreign; the second has ev-
ery appearance of being a third
rate hash house.
MUSIC GROUP HOLDS
JNSTAUAT/ON
At the McDowell Music Club's
installation dinner on Oct. 24,
Miss Florence Yamada was sworn
in as president.
Other officers to take the
oath of office at the candle-
lite affair were Ikuyo Matsuda,
secretary, and Mikiye Hamada,
treasurer.
The dinner was under the
Joint chairmanship of Joan Ma-
tsuda, Pearl Kuwahara, and Ku-
niko Kanal.

MED KAIHMA MAKES
BAOIO ADDRESS
According to a radio address
by Fred Kaibara of the Colorado
Times, prejudice against the Ni-
sei is on the wane. "I can not
help but feel", he said, "that
the Japanese-Americans in the
future will have at least equal
opportunities In Coloradoas
any other peoples".
He felt that the Japanese-
Americans have no housing pro-
blem aside from that faced by
"average peopleunder the ab-
normal conditions existing dur-
ing and after the war. "He
stressed that there are equal
educational opportunities in
Colorado and no anti-Japanese
laws.
Mr. Kaihara stated that time
will be the greatest factor in
eliminating race prejudice and
misunderstanding throughout Am-
erica.

It as wonderful to see DICK

Halloween party. ETHEL was dan-
cing with a handsome young guy
of course It wasnt DICK. Re-
member* we said the man was
handsome.
Poor TED CHIBA has been laid
up with a broken leg* but hes
pretty lucky being stuck at home
with a pretty wife like DOROTHY
to fuss over him.
