problems," thus stated Mrs.

experiences at the famed Hull
House in Chicago under Jane Ad-

THE DENVER JACL BULLETIN
JANUARY 1948
Happy New Tear Greetings to
all JACLers.
In this my first editorial,
I want to ask the people of Den-
ver to cooperate with me and my
cabinet in every way to put
over the great measures being
presented to Congress by the
Anti-Discrimination Committee in
Washington.
I would like to see the ni-
sei go out 100$ on registration
in this voting year and show
the American public that we are
a minority to be reckoned with
and to be heard. It seems that
the officials are only inter-
ested in a groups voting power.
Lets give it to them--plenty of
it J
Lets all join the JACL and
show Washington officials that
the ADC which represents the
JACL, represents each one of us.
Lets give them a National rost-
er of 110,000 members. I feel
this will make the officials
wake up and notice the ADC leg-
islative bills.
There are some in our midst
who are anti-JACL. Now is the
time to wake up to the fact that
the JACL is trying to do some-
thing worthwhile--it is NOW that
we need your support.
Now, "How can I help," you
may ask. Well, join the JACL.
"I can't go to meetings, whats
the use of joining," you may ask.
Wei 1, join, if only to add your
name to the list as those sup-
porting and asking the passage of
the legislative bills.
VOTE, and make your votes
count in your city, state, and
country or we need only to go
on unrecognised, discriminated,
and pushed aside.
Masunaga 3/ps
AOiEU
This Is my last message from
this corner. And at this time
it is with a deep feeling----a
feeling of sadness, realizing
suddenly that the cabinet meet-
ings we attended together argu-
ing, discussing, cussing, and
laughing together have come to
an abrupt ending--that I make my
exit
It was a resolute cabinet
that met twelve months ago. We
experienced the indistinct de-
liniatlon of various committee
responsibility, and the calling
of a few but faithful hard work-
ing members. But I cannot help
but feel we accomplished some
things worthwhile.
To my cabinet, my humble ap-
preciation. Thanks a million
for your cooperation. Whatever
success our chapter enjoyed dur-
ing 1947 was because of the con-
stant diligence, propritiousness
and assiduousness on your part.
Emi Katagiri worked hard on
membership. Tosh Ando outlined
a vigorous program and carried
it out. George Kubos capabili-
ty helped tremendously. Bessie
Matsudas enthusiasm was an in-
spiration to all* Mike Kawai
gave very generously of her time
and effort.
To the membership at large, I
wish to express my gratitude for
your very generous support. I

Denver, Colorado
Dear Mr. Masunaga:
Thank you very much for your
kind letter setting forth the
commendation of the organization
you represent of the work of the
Committee on Human Relations. I
feel that the information and
facts which have been provided
me will enable me to more intel-
ligently analyze and meet the
problem of inter-community rela-
tions in Denver.
It is my intent and desire to do
everything possible to foster
and encourage harmonious communi-
ty relations, and I pledge my
every effort to that end. I hope
that I may be able to call upon
your organization for support
of my program in the future.
Yours very truly,
He is a tall shy-looking fel-
low who wears glasses. But a
few moments acquaintance brings
out his spontaneous grin.
Quigg Newton, Mayor
"I've been practicing only a-
bout two months in Denver, but I
like it very much here," said
the young medico.
"Mike" as he is known by his
intimate friends is a native of
Los Angeles. He attended UCLA
and is a graduate of the Des
Moines Still College of Osteopa-
thy and Surgery.
He served his internship a t
Gleason Hospital in Larned, Kan-
sas find remained there two years
as house physician.
At the present time he is
connected with St. Philip's Hos-
pital and maintains an office in
town.
"I like all athletics, and I
am anxious to make friends here,"
said Dr. Uba with a broad smile.
//V Appreciation
The Bulletin staff wishes to
express its appreciation to the
many advertisers who have given
their -generous support to this
paper. Only through them has it
been possible to put out each
month's issue without loss.
To Rosa Higashi and Hikaru
Iwasaki of Wilshire Studio, the
editor says "thank you so much".
You both contributed of your
professional talent faithfully
and willingly. Your artistry
has given this paper distinct
touches making it outstanding.
And to the columnists go my
thanks too. You were all most
cooperative. Please carry o n
this year just as you did in the
past.
Carjly On,
CO/%9 £d/to*-
As junior climbs all over the
typewriter smearing rubber ce-
ment on the keys, your, editor is
relieved that this is her "last
issue". But looking back, it
has been fun putting out each
month's copy. It has also been
delightful for "Stevie"he's
got printer's ink in his blood
too.
Since the new cabinet is re<-
sponsible for publication of the
Bulletin, it has appointed Chiye
Horiuchi to carry on. She will
retain the old staff who have
been most generous with their
support.
We are glad to see new edi-
tors come to the Bulletin. Al-
ready three have served. It
means each time a change is made
new ideas are put in force.
We hope you readers will con-
tinue to be enthusiastic about
the Bulletin.

CRITIC'S
CORNER
by Sill Hosokowo.
For a people who such a short
time ago were hounded, despised,
ignored and even threatened, the
tremendous reservoir of good
will that now exists for them
may be little short of amazing.
We refer to the Nisei, who have
friends In many strange places*
Take, for instance, the old-
timer at the weather -beaten
crossroads town of Boise City,
Oklahoma. After we had conclud-
ed a two-hour interview he said:
"And if I am not being too
presumptive,may I ask what east-
ern country you originally are
from?"
And when he had been told he
brightened visibly and said:
"Oh, a Japanese American. There
is one of your people up here a
way. Harry. I can never remem-
ber his last name. A fine farm-
er and a splendid fellow. He
and I get along wonderfully*
"He came here during the war,
from one of those camps* That
was a nasty business,deplorable.
But Harry's just as good an Am-
erican as I am."
And in Garden City, Kan., a
professional man in his late
twenties said:
"I met a young couple from
that camp out at Granada several
years ago. We. were on a train.
They were on leave, going east
somewhere. I spent five of the
most pleasant hours I've ever
had chatting with those Nisei.
I've often wondered where they
went, and how they fared."
One of the more general com-
ments goes something like this:
"You mean they put YOU in acamp?
But why? I knew they had to
lock up some Japanese, but you
are an American."
And then you have to tell
them the whole story about the
evacuation, and they are incred-
ulous .
Perhaps that is the reason
such organizations as the JACL
and the ADC are necessary. They
must pass the word on to groups
and Individuals throughout the
country who are anxious to see
justice done and discrimination
ended, but cannot act because
they are not aware of the facts.
The Nisei have a multitude of
friends, which is due in largest
part to their own industry, ini-
tiative and personableness* But
those friends have to be told of
the battle we are still fighting.

i>EEK-AB§£'
So many goings on during the
holidays that the lil PEEK A BOO
has been worn to a peep, however
we peeped into the FURUTAS on
Dec. 29th, and found a houseful
of people, then on New Years
eve, the KODANlS hailed their
friends in for cocktails.
Many a confetti festooned
couple found their way into the
NAKAYAMA and T3RASAKI household
after the N. Y. Eves dance.
Then the SUENAOAS and ITOS
wound up the New Year right with
much to-do at their manors.
HARRY TANOUYS, civil service
worker from Washington spent a
gay holiday in townand it was
good to see that Turhan Beyish
SETS ITO hack in the arms of his
gal TO YAMAGUCHI.
Jo ran into PERRY MORI, hack
from Northwestern for the holi-
days, hat shopping for his sweet
mom at the May, just as we ap-
proached him, he was asking the
saleslady which way an in tricate
lil chapeau went on, and the
next minute found, tired, over-
worked salesgirls rolling ia
laughter-PERRY had the hat on 12
If you ever have a Thursday
nite free, take in a basketball
game at Manual. The gals can
watch one boys game, and the
boys can watch two gals games.
The games are scheduled from 7
to 11.
FUZZY YASUDA, who made a sen-
sational home run for the NWAA
in the city championship soft-
ball playoffs last year is cer-
tainly the gal to watch on the
Rays Starlette cage teamshes
everywhere the ball is.
TERRY KODAMA was an interes-
ted spectator at the Johnny Down
Royal Duke basketball game at
Manual recently. She and MAS
NAKAYAMA seemed to get a kick
out of seeing their husbands,
KODY and YOSH struggle along
with the boys on the team. A-
nother straggler was pot-bellied
JACLer, MITS KANEKOswell show,
boys, as HOWARD SUENAOA too
will tell you.
Something new had been added
to the JACK NODA, REV. T. FUKU-
YAMA. and T. MORIYAMA (nee TOSHI
KAKO) households.
Ask GEORGE MASUNAGA about his
recent vacation and hell take
on that wistful look and rattle
off a bevy of impressive femme
names. He certainly ran into a
mess of former Denverites.
A delightful musical was held
at the FURUTA home recently with
FLORENCE YAMADA, DICK AOYAGI and
GEORGS FURUTA rendering vocal
selections, and DORIS YAMADA,
and DIANE MATSUDA playing the
piano; EDDY MATSUDA rendered a
m&dolin solo.
The MIN YASUIS are anticipa-
ting an addition, come mid
summer
AMY MIURA teamed with TAKI
DOWOTO tied for first place with
Dr. CHILI FUJISAKI and Dr. YOSH
ITO at the last duplicate bridge
tournament sponsored by the
chapter in December.
During Xmas eve burglars ent-
ered the offices of ANDO, KANEKO
and KIMURA, causing estimated
damages of over $500.00.
Newcomer to Denver is JACK
KIMTTRA, new owner of the Sun-
shine Grocery.
The KITANO'S are expecting an
issue in the not to distant fu-
ture.
Basketball predictions during
the first week of play in the
current DNBL loop are, with min-
or exceptions, running almost
true to form as the smart boys
along Grapevine Avenue forecast.
On January ninths opening
games the Mighty Marusho Miks,
perennial city champs, stamped
themselves as the team to beat
when they neatly polished off a
challenging Bussei club 32-19.
The Templars matched points
for three quarters with a crip-
pled Mik starter with a golden
opportunity for an upset-making,
but Hash Togashi filling the
ailing Lander Itos spot teamed
with speedy George Nagai, Yas
Aochi, veteran Kayo Senzakl and
Jack Ito out-maneuvered their
opponents to clinch their opener
A small but well -balanced
Manchu Grill club with plenty of
"basketball savvy" in such
clutch-players as "Jumping Joe"
Ariki,Tad Marumoto, Joey Sumida,
Sam Nagai, Tom Tsukiji, Harry
Nakagawa and Tak Yamasaki earned
a hard-fought victory over Rupe
Arals tall and potent TK Phar-
macy representative.
Dame Fortune played an ironic
role as Tad Marumoto and Joey
Sumida (members of last years TK
squad) rallied in the waning mo-
ments of the game to overcome a
6 point TK lead and a story-book
39-37 finish. The Trojans, in
going down to defeat showed
plenty of class in such perfor-
mers as Rupe Aral, Kaz Kanda,
Genji Yamamoto, Edwin Hagihara,
and Hayashi still remain as a
team to be reckoned with.
An unheralded Joes Jewelers,
working greatly with a combina-
tion of Barney Yasuda, Harry
Shiramizu, Tom Ida, Tosh Hlga,
George Miyamoto and Fred Kawano,
loom as the best of the second
division teams and with some
"breaks" may come thru with up-
sets against the aforementioned
quartet.
The Sparklers dumped the
Cards 44-30 for their second win
against the Redbirds, who along
with a promising Johnny Downs
outfit can improve with each
week. Downs dropped a 32-26 de-
cision to the Brighton YBA, a
combined Royal Duke and Sad Sax
aggregation starring Wes Koyano.
In the Class "B" circuit be-
ing played weekly at Lake Jr. Hi
a big GI Market five will proba-
bly be the most sought after
team week in and week out by the
rest of the junior members. A
hustling Bussei Jrs. and an un-
tried Brighton YMA possibly will
occupy the contending roles over
the Denver Inmates and Longmont.
The B & P mens organization
sponsored a golf tournament on
Wednesday of last week under the
chairmanship of Frank Torizawa.
Trophies were contributed by S.
Naraba and Frank Aoki.
In the "A" flight Ed Matsuda
placed first and Frank Torizawa
came in second. Their scores
were 82-13-29 net and 89-18-71
net respectively.
Shig Imamura came in first in
the "B" flight with Shig Teraji
only one stroke behind. Shig I!s
score was 91-21-70 net and Shig
T. made 93-22-71 net.
