DECEMBER 1947
Orchids and orchids to Mrs.
Michi Kawal for her splendid co-
operation in conjunction with
the Anti-Discrimination Commit-
tee work.
As you all know she chaired
the Anti-Discrimination Commit-
tee for the Denver chapter, and
it is through her untiring ef-
forts, assiduousness and her
diligence that the magnificent
results were obtained.
Many of you are not cognizant
of the long hours Mike has spent
at the office every day compil-
ing data, making contacts, send-
ing correspondence and preparing
programs. Without her the vir-
tuous work would have been im-
possible.
Lastly but by far not the
least, orchids also to the many
generous organizations such as
the Cornelians, Young Buddhists
Association, the Business and
Professional Mens organization,
the Klka Kisei Domei, Nisei In-
termountaln Collegiate confer-
ence, the Cathey Post, etc.,
which have responded so gra -
tiously.
At this time with the Christ-
mas Spirit prevalent all over
the countryside, it puts people
predominantly in one of two cat-
egorieseither you are kept so
busy thinking about and shopping
for gifts or you have so much
more time in full relaxation to
think about others less fortu-
nate than we. So in the tradi-
tion, if not in the real spirit,
we will celebrate Christmas.
As I have mentioned before
food and aid to starving Asia
and western Europe are a must,
and we Americans must provide
both, not Just at this yuletide
alone but for a long, long time
until those countries can become
self-sustaining economically.
However, we cannot let neither
the prodigiousness of this cri-
tical problem nor the distance
disillusion or blind us of our
predicamentthe dire situation-
if not as widespread which ex-
ists here at home. Surely for-
eign aid is important, but must
it take prerogative over our own
needy?
It is our Christian spirit
and generosity which prods us on
to help those in other countries
In the same manner, we can aid
those at home. We will do both
for as A1 Jolson said the otner
evening as he pleaded with the
radio public to abide by the
Presidents request to observe
meatless Tuesdays, eat less
bread, etc.
So as my last message for
this yeara thankful and gra-
cious yearmay I make a befit-
ting closeA Very Merry Christ-
mas to each and every one of
you and a Happy Happy New YearU
CATHAV POST
ENDORSES BILL
At a recent Cathay Post Am-
erican Legion meeting, the post
passed a resolution endorsing
the bills being presented to
Congress by the Anti-Discrimin-
ation Committee.
Commander Max Greenwald an-
nounced that he was urging adop-
tion of the resolution by other
posts in Colorado. The resolu-
tion has been presented to the
American Legion convention de-
partment.

(Our guest editor this month
is Mr. Elver Barker. He is the
executive secretary of the Den-
ver Chapter of the International
Fellowship of Reconciliation.)
"OUR CHALLENGE,,
FOR SURVIVAL
When the atomic bomb was drop-
ped on Hiroshima August 6, 1945,
the world suddenly emerged into
a new age, but the worlds mass-
es have not awakened to that new
age. Our scientific discoveries
have reached fantastic propor-
tions, but our religious morals
are not above those of the Dark
Ages. Our problem is to bring
our moral practices up to a lev-
el to cope with the technical
development we have achieved.
In the Atomic Age wars must
cease, or Man will cease. To
stop wars we must begin at that
point where we have the most
controlwithin our own hearts.
The major cause of war lies in
the individuals sanction of war
through his support of it. The
individual is a unit of society.
ELVER A. BARKER
Every individual who abstains
from indulgence in war, is mak-
ing war to that degree lighter.
There is a power in non-coopera-
tion with evil. To cooperat e
with an evil is to help perpetu-
ate that evil. To refuse to co-
operate with an evil is to help
bring about the di si ntegration
of that evil.
There is another way than
violence, and that Is the Way of
Love. As we approach the cele-
brated birthday of Him who said
"Ye have heard it said unto you
overcome evil with evil, but X
say unto you overcome evil with
good, we had best think ser-
iously into the meaning of this
Truth. Why divorce our religi-
ous principles from our social
practices? Conscientious ob-
jection to war must no longer be
a rare and unpopular thing, but
a commonplace conviction as the
only real .solution to our war
problem. If we do not solve our
war problem now, no other prob-
lem is worth solving.
We must heed the warning of
Einstein who says; "Making peace
is a psychological problem. But
you have this dilemma: You want
to make peace and you want to
prepare for war. You cannot
serve these two masters. You
cannot prepare for peace and for
war at the same time. It is
psychologically impossible."
Shall the Bullet//?
Conf//?(/e ? ?
We appreciate very much the
sentiments expressed by Mr. Ho-
sokawa in his column. Being a
"real" newspaperman, he knows
what has to be done each month
before this paper reaches you.
It is true that all of us who
have helped put the Bulletin out
have enjoyed the hours spent.
But there have been occasional
headaches too.
The new cabinet which takes
over in January decides the fate
of this paper. Do you, our read-
ers, wish to have it continued?
Please let us know your reaction.

Following each of our current
field trips, the report of the
Denver JACL chapters ADC finan-
cial campaign contribution list
and amount to our office has
been growing like Topsy.
This heartening accomplish-
ment is to be attributed direct-
ly to the selfless effort and
devotion to the cause by Mrs.
Mike K&wai, chairman of the cam-
paign committee and its members.
However, the campaign, which
is still in progress as this ar-
ticle is being written, assured-
ly could not have succeeded to
the extent that it did, without
the wholehearted support given
to the committee by the large
number of nisei organizations.
To my knowledge, this is the
first time in the history of the
Denver chapter when so many per-
sons of so many organizations
supported a project undertaken
by the chapter. A full finan-
cial report of the campaign, of
course, will be made to member s
of the chapter by Mrs. Kawals
committee.
The Tri-State office, in co-
operation with the Isseis fin-
ancial campaign organization, is
now in the midst of the se cond
series of field trips. Your ac-
complishment is being spread by
word of mouth to our friends in
the Japanese communities through-
out the Trj.-State area as the
inspiring example of what the
Niseis can do for our ADC legis-
lative cause.

CRITIC'S
CORNER
by Sill Hosokattfo.
Elsewhere in this Bulletin is
a small box carrying the names
of those who each month put in
the necessary man and woman-
hours necessary to get this paA
per out.
Among the names is ours, but
that's a mistake. We dont be-
long there, because the only
thing we do is sit down and rat-
tle off a column once a month.
Someone phones to remind us that
its column-writing time again,
and we say okay and in the next
few days we write a column and
turn it in. Thats all we do a-
bout the Bulletin until the same
time the following month.
Thats why we say we dont
belong in the same box with
those who get together every
month, lay out the pages, gather
the news, write and edit copy,
type it into the proper form,
write the headlines, paste up
the pages and take them down to
the printer, and finally mail
out the finished copies.
You dont realize how much
work is involved in putting out
even a monthly the size of the
Bulletin until youve tried it
yourself. Its a labor of love
for there is no return to the
staff other than the satisfac-
tion of a service well done.
So, in this the last issue of
the year, we devote this space
to an appreciation of the work
being done by the regular staf-
fers. Speaking for the public,
we are grateful for your efforts
We look forward to reading the
newsy, lively Bulletin, and the
day is just a little brighter
for it having entered our home.
We hope this expression of ap-
preciation will help make the
time and effort you expend seem
more worthwhile.

Holidays Greetings
JACLs present-day coast to
coast national offices got its
start from the regional office in
Denver where I had the delight-
ful assignment of working for
two and a half years. All those
friends with whom I shared the
experiences of coping with war-
time problems I number among my
fondest memories of Denver and
the Tri-State region. Mary Ann
and I want expecially this holi-
day season to convey our best
wishes to all our friends and
members of the JACL.
JOE GRANT MASAOKA
Many thanks for the courtesy
and privilege of extending our
heartiest greetings to our many
friends in Denver for the Holi-
day Season. Time flies and dis-
tance keeps us apart. But, we
cherish the many happy memories
of our four years stay in Denver,
among you Denverites; All Grand
folks! What are we doing? Can
you imagine a traveling salesman
turn into a chicken rancher?
Well, thats us! Our neighbors
were nearly all once residents
of Denver, and they all join me
in extending their Best Wishes
for a Merry Christmas and a
prosperous New Year.
CHARLES & YUKI KAMAYATSU
We are confidently looking
for some constructive legisla-
tion affecting all of us in 1948.
Merry Christmas and best Wishes
for the New Year.
REV. & HRS. C. P GARMAN
Merry Xmas to our friends in
Denver. We still miss the warmth
of your gay winter socials and
also the big ones in your stream.
But, we are happy to be home a-
gain in Hermosa Beach, and here
we go swimming in December and
spend our Sundays fishing for
mackerels off the pier.

M/NOWT/ES REPORT
Min Yasui and State Senator
Arthur A. Brooks participated in
a radio discussion of the re-
cently released Mayors report
on minorities in Denver over
Station K L 2. The discussion
pointed to the similarities be-
tween the Mayors report and the
Presidents Report on Civil Li-
berties, and was a part of the
program, Liberty Calling.
Both Sen. Brook and Min Yasui
hailed these reports as a step
forward in the fight to end dis-
crimination and they further
called upon the mayor to appoint
a permanent committee on Human
Relations to carry out the sug-
gestion of the Survey Committee.
This broadcast is the third
one over KLZ to feature promi-
nent Nisei speakers. Jimny Omu-
ra of the Rocky Shimpo and Fred
Kaihara of the Colorado Times
were previously given time of
Liberty Calling to express to
the general public their view on
the problems of the Japanese in
Denver.

Ot EMBRU SPEAKS
TO UNITY COUNCIL.
Several Nisei attended the
recent Denver Unity Council
meeting when Dr. E. Embree, head
of the Chicago Mayor's Committee
on Human Relations spoke on how
the diverse population of Denver
could live in harmony.
Dr. Bnbree, commenting on the
President's document of Human
Rights declared the document was
a declaration of freedom and
equality.
He stated that as a result of
the President's document, a per-
manent human relatione office
dealing with equal opportunity
and fair play for all citizens
had been established by the Fed-
eral Government
About twenty four states have
adopted similar commissions as
have many cities.
Denver Is contemplating some
such program.
PEEK A BOO, con'd.
The day after SAM FUSHIMI'S
Italian War bride, LUISA arrived
in Denver, she was in the hos-
pital with an appendectomy.
At the Cornelian Card Party
we don't see how these mothers
do it, but CLARA TAKAHASHI, RUI
TANIGUCHI, HANNAH TAKAMINE, and
ETHEL YANASE looked like high
school kids playing bridge.

The consensus among the local
experts tabs the teams to be
generally even in strength and
manpower, with the defending
city titliststhe Marusho Miks-
-slightly favored. Gone will
be Tets Narahara, the Uiks
"terrific" ace, but the champs
have Shun Nakayama, Lander and
Jack Ito and Yas Aoki as main-
stays.
Rated as serious contenders
are the 1948 edition of the TK
Pharmacy five headed by Rupe
Aral's gang backboned by Lefty
Noda, Ken Imamura, Kay Otagura
and Genji Yamamoto emphasizing
height. In the same category are
listed the greatly improved Den-
ver YBA featuring Tats Iwahashi,
Lucky Yamaga, Frank Kamibayashi,
George Yamaguchi, Walt Moriya
and bolstered by newcomers Hideo
Hirose, and ex-Trojan Larry Fu-
kuhara. Joe Ariki's Manchu
Rockets in their early season
work outs loom as serious
threats as clever Tad Marumoto
and loping Joey Sumida of last
years strong TK squad are work-
ing out with Nakagawa and Tom
Tsukuji.
Completing the field will be
a much improved and hustling
Joe's Jewelers as former Trojan
Harry Shiramizu and Barney Ya-
suda are collaborating with Tom
Ida, Tosh Hlga and George Miya-
moto, while the Brighton Sad Sax
have that added year's exper-
ience to their credit. Altho the
relative strength and merits of
the two new teams, the Johnny
Downs club and Larry Goto'5
Northern aggregation are unknown
the basketball dopesters vouch
that the Vegetable boys are ex-
perienced players, while Goto
has the pick of the Ft. Morgan
and Sterling area performing
under his banner.
