DO YOU JUST BELONG?*
Are you an active member?
The kind who would be missed?
Or are you just contented
That your name is on the list?
Do you attend the meetings
And mingle with the flock?
Or do you stay at home
And criticize and knock?
Do you take an active part
To help the work along?
Or are you satisfied to be
The kind that just belong?
There's quite a program sched-
uled
That I'm sure you've heard about
And will appreciate if you
Will come and help us out.
So come to the meetings often
And help with hand and heartj
Don't be just a member
But take an active part.
Think it over carefully,
You Know right from wrong.
Are you an active member?
Or do you just belong?

NISEI HONORED
AT COSMO DINNER
The Reverend Tsutomu Fukuyama
of Brotherhood House received
the Cosmopolitan Club Award as
one of the outstanding persons
in Denver who has made a worthy
contribution toward the better-
ment of human relations. He was
the only Nisei so honored.
Rev. Fukuyama is very active
in promoting interracial pro-
grams among the young people in
the community. His Brotherhood
House is an interesting experi-
ment in interracial living.
This annual affair of the Cos-
mopolitan Club was held at the
Temple Emmanuel. Mrs. Helen Ume-
2awa was in charge of the Orien-

VPS DIRECTOR NEEDS
coMHUNnr sumttr
Miss Betty Krummel, assistant
group worker of the Young Adult
Division of the YWCA reported on
the reorganization and progress
of the Young Peoples Society on
March 4, when the Japanese Amer-
ican Advisory Board of the YWCA
met at a luncheon.
Members of the board are the
Mesdames: Robert Irving, chair-
man of the Board; Moder, Kodani,
Mabel Costigan, K. Sasaki, G.
Nakamura and the Misses Betty
Krummel and Bessie Matsuda.
"In the past, stated Miss
Krummel, the YPS dances did not
enjoy a very good reputation. A
few did all the work, the people
came from miles away only to
find unfriendly cliquish groups,
grudges were fomented by a well
meant friendly cutting in, the
people in charge were young and
unable to cope or oversee all
this, there were no chaperones."
"These very facts prove that
a YPS is necessary. The 3roung

JACL ORGANIZES
SOCIAL SERVICE
COMMITTEE
NKOS CAPABLE CHR.
At the February cabinet meet-
ing of the JACL it was voted to
establish a Social Service Com-
mittee. At that time an amount,
was budgeted for this purpose.
Recently it came to the at-
tention of many that just such a
committee was necessary. On se-
veral occasions the Red Cross
has appealed to the JACL for aid
in matters pertaining to the
Japanese. Once it was a letter
from a Japanese boy wanting
American pen pals.
There is the case of Rose
Hiraga, a Lisle Fellowship Camp-
er who was in an automobile ac-
cident with four others in east-
ern Colorado. She incurred se-
vere injuries and has been in
the Colorado General Hospital
since last August. Her home is
in New York City.
There are Mrs. Fujiko Burns
and Mrs. Junko Watanabe, pa-
tients at Fitzsimmons, Mrs.
Burns is scheduled for a lung
operation and needs morale sup-
port.
Mrs. Watanabe is expecting a
baby next month and it would be
nice if some Japanese family
could care for her baby until
she is well.
The cabinet has up to this
date not been able to secure
anyone to head this committee
though many have volunteered to
serve. The JACL will welcome
any solutions from.churches, in-
dividuals or other service or-
ganizations v/ho are interested
in such projects.
NISEI VOTERS
REMEMBER
TO REGISTERS
1948 is a presidential elec-
tion year. Anyone 21 and over
v/ho is a registered voter can
help determine the man for pre-
sident.
Too fsv/ Niseis have carried
out their duty as citizens.
!Iany have failed to go to the
polls at election time. Still
more have neglected their first
step of registering so they can
vote in an election.
Registration is permanent in
Colorado. However, failure to
vote in a previous election
makes re-registration necessary.
If one should be out of town on
election day, an Absentee Ballot
may be secured from the County
Clerk.
The future Nisei voters of
Denver can register at the City
& County 3uildinc Room 150. The
hours are 8:30 5:30 Monday
through Friday and 8:30-12:00 on
Saturday.
DONATIONS
The Chapter gratefully acKnow-

TPI-STATE
RAMBIINGS
by Roy Takeao
We, in the Tri-State Regional
Office, are often asked, "What
do you do when you're not criss-
crossing Colorado and the four
other states covered by this of-
fice?"
One typical day's work might
look like this. The desk calen-
dar notes indicates that a Miss
Mary Slabotsky of Denver Univer-
sity's School of Social Work has
an appointment to see me about
JACL-ADC organization and func-
tions. At noon, a luncheon
meeting with the members of the
executive committee of the Den-
ver Unity Council.
Having attended, upon invita-
tion, a meeting of the South-
western Council on Education of
Spanish Speaking People on the
previous day, we had made an
appointment to talk with an
attorney, Gus Garcia, delegate
to the council from San Antonio,
Texas. What business have I to
talk with a lawyer from San
Antonio? We'll explain.
While I'm looking over my
day's schedule, the telephone
buzzer buzzes. Philip Stillman
of the American Red Cross wants
to know whether we would ask
Denver Chapter members to call
on Mrs. Fujiko Bums and Mrs.
Junko Watanabe, patients in the
Fitzsimmons hospital.
And then, there's the morn-
ing's mail. Legislative reports
from Mike Masaoka's office in
Washington, D. C., a letter from
Houston, Texas, memos from the
secretary of the Omaha, Nebr.,
chapter. The letter from Hous-
ton indicates that a JACL chap-
ter is about to be organized
there. Detailed reports to fol-
low, it says. Something else in
Mike's envelope.......a copy of
President Truman's recommenda-
tions to Congress for civil
rights program. That goes in my
folder, one of the publications
to be read at night.
continued on next column
yam cam mm "goat STOW"
1948 is the 'year of decision*
declares one of our national
staff, as far as the JACL-ADC
program is concerned. One of
the most effective ways that the
Nisei can support this vital
program is membership in JACL.
In the second session of this
80th Congress are two important
bills which affect us immediate-
ly. One is the Evacuation
Claims Bill. Is there any Nisei
who didn't suffer losses from
evacuation?
The other important piece of
legislation is the Naturaliza-
tion of Issei. Do the Nisei
still want to be second class
citizens?
When Mike Masaoka testifies
before a Congressional Committee
or contacts any Congressman- he
is invariably asked "How many
voters do you represent?" Es-
pecially in an election year,
Congressmen are interested in
votes, for that is the way they
get into office, to put it
naively.
JACL is the only nationally
organized group which is fight-
ing to secure the gains made by
the Nisei G.I.'s who fought so
valiantly in all theaters of the
v:;^r.
continued from column one
And so tile day moves on, past
the D.U.C. luncheon meeting and
on to Cosmopolitan hotel to
knock on Gus Garcia* s door. Gus
has been a frequent associate of
A1 Wirin, one of our legal coun-
selors who represented us in the
Oyama anti-alien land law case
before the U.S. ADC bills. After
all, Texas with its Senator Tom
Connally and 21 Congressmen
every single one of them bone-
solid Democrats....
And then, in this our elec-
tion year, there are the Repub-
licans of Nebraska, but that's
another story.
In the evening, a strategy
meeting is scheduled with our
loyal issei supporters of the
Kika Kisei Dome! in Dr. Miyamo-
to's apartment. And there you
have a sketchy day's schedule,
hardly in the order of Mrs. F.D.
R.'s celebrated nMy Day," but
nonetheless a reasonable facsi-
mile of some of the happenings
of one day in 615 E. & C. Build-
Yuki Kato, Chairman of the
Goat for Relief drive, announced
a total of $55.00 had been re-
ceived through the volunteer giv-
ing of the St. Louis Japanese
folks.
The real goat story concerns
the news item which appeared in
the Jan. 19th Star-Times' City
Edition, headlined "Niseis Out
to get Someone's GoatTo Send
to Okinawa."
Reporter Bob Schulman, who
interviewed Joe Tanaka, wrote a
very favorable article. It got
immediate response in the form
of a gift of two goats from Mrs.
Edward Roeslier of Overland, Mo.
At this writing Joe Tanaka
has two goats on his mindto
turn the goats into cash and the
cash to be given to the local re-
presentatives of the Church
World Service which will buy a
goat (or goats) in California
for shipment to Japan.

they can learn to play and work
together."
"The Young Peoples Council,
the planning committee for these
dances, has become much more
effective in that more people
are actually taking on responsi-
bilities and executing them, and
mixers are being planned to co-
ordinate the cliques, but the
kids do need the supervision and
interest of the older group."
In that respect the JACL has
offered to send chaperones to
each dance because it feels that
a community program which the
young people need, which can be
a potential source of leaders
for our community is worthy of
assistance.
"With a larger reserve of
of chaperones to draw from, each
couple would be asked about
twice a year to attend these
dances, says George Masunaga,
chairman of the JACL committee
for the YPS." So any couple who
want to render a community ser-
vice is urged to contact the
JACL office and offer to volun-
teer their chaperonage.

CRITIC'S
CORNER
by Sill Hosokobxt
Odds and ends from the note-
book: There's a Nisei in El
Reno, Okla., named Frank Fujita
who,according to our informants,
went -through the Bataan Death
March and 40 months of imprison-
ment in Japanese concentration
camps. He did a sketch of camp
life which will illustrate a
story on the Death March, writ-
ten by another survivor, which
will appear April 4 in the Den-
ver Post magazine section....
The Urban league's annual re-
port points out that the organ-
ization made up of Negroes and
Caucasians, has expanded its
functions in Denver to include
the welfare of Japanese Ameri-
cans and Spanish Americans as
well.....
Hoy Takeno, whose designation
used to be Tri-States JACL re-
presentative, now has a six-
state beatColorado, Wyoming,
Nebraska, New Mexico, Texas and
Oklahoma.
He reports a JACL chapter is
in the process of being formed
in the Houston-Galveston area
(mostly rice-growers). Other
units are being considered in
the Rio Grande valley near
Brownsville on the Mexican bor-
der (vegetable growers): Albu-
querque, N.M.: at Rocky F0rd in
the Arkansas valley of Colorado
(melons and onions). Next on
his itinerary will be Cheyenne
and Hock Springs (small mer-
chants), Wyo., and possibly Wor-
land, Wyoming (sugar beets,
beans) After that, maybe Bar-
lesville, Okla.....
If memory serves right, plans
for a national JACL were laid in
Los Angeles in 1928 twenty
years ago--and the first nation-
al convention held in Seattle in
1930. Little did those delegates
dream that one day the JACL
would have chapters scattered
from ocean to ocean, border to
border ... And now the New
Japanese American News of Los
Angeles is undertaking a direct-
ory of Nisei and Issei in North
and *outh America .

championship game. Left to right are George Nagai, Frank Higa and

The Mighty Marusho Miks con-
cluded the 1948 maplewood cam-
paign doubly-ribboned in blue as
the defending champions marched
through a trying Joe's Jewelers
47-28 for the DNBL loop title
and then turned back a tough
Manchu Grill quintet 40-37 with
a solid second half punch to add
the tournament championship to
their laurels.
Coach Jerry Tsutsuis classy
Miks, manned by three All-Stars
in sharpshooting Shun Nakayama.
tall Lander Ito and Yas Aochi
plus the cagey veteran Kayo Sen-
zaki and speedy George Nagai
with talented reserves in Jack
Ito, Aki Hirami, Hash Togashi
and Tootsie Tsutsui, walloped
the Cards 51-33 and the Spark-
lers 60-44 on their way to the
tournament finals.
Meanwhile the challenging
Manchu Grillers, paced by "Jump-
ing Joe" Ariki, Norm Goto, Tad
Marumoto, Joey Sumida, Sam Na-
gai aided and abetted by Tom
Tsukiji, Tak Yamasaki, T. Toga-
shi and Harry Nakagawa, earned
their final berth battling
through the TK Pharmacy 48-38
and Tosh Nakamuras tough Bussei
crew in an avenging 53-48 double
over-time victory.
In the Class "A" consolation
bracket a greatly improved John-
ny Dov.ns team sparked by little
Beaver Asano and the Komaru
brothers twice dumped the pro-
verbial applecart with victories
over the Redbirds 27-25 and a
greatly favored TK Pharmacy 38-
33 for theJackJry^rpphy.
In the Junior division the
Bussei babes, sparked by their
ball-rustling forwards in Min
Higa and Jun Hamai, edged out
the Brighton YMA 24-21 and the
strong but erraetic GI Market
five 16-12 to add the tourney
championship to their DNBL nBn
title. A fighting Longmont
aggregation came roaring back in
the consolation division by wal-
lopping the Inmates 35-20 and
then squared a previous 26-22
loss to Brighton with a 28-26
championship performance against
the Red and White YMA.
The ten week hardwood season
drew to a colorful close climax-
ed with an Award Dance at the
Conoco hall last night. The
event, co-sponsored by the DNLB
and the NWAA organizations,
attended by approximately 400
people witnessed the Miks walk-
ing off with the bulk of the 11
trophies awarded, including the
beautiful Perpetual tournament
trophy donated by the JACL.
