CHAPTER TO SEND
DELEGATES TO S. 1.
The Denver Chapter JACL is
attend the National Tenth Bi-
ennial Convention in Salt Lake
City over the Labor Day Vacation
from September 4 to the 8th,
So far those who are planning
.to. attend are: George Furuta
and Shig Imamura official Denver
Delegates; Rose Shlramlzu Nation*
al JACL Queen Candidate, Helen
Tanaka, Mami Katagiri, Dr. Kunl-
tomo, Betty Lou Kunitomo, Toshio
Ando and Bessie Matsuda. All
those who are interested in
attending, are urged to pre-re-
*. gister or turn in their name3 at
'the JACL office.
George Mochizuki, Beauty Con-
test Chairman, Informed the Den-
ver Chapter recently that the
Denver Queen candidate, Rose
Shlramlzu was selected as one of
the finalists In the National
Contest through pictures of her
that were submitted to the Na-
tional Committee.
With this announcement it is
hoped that Denver will send a
large booster delegation to give
moral support to Rose and to re-
turn to Denver with theNationa 1
JACL Beauty Queen.
Bessie Matsuda expressed her
opinion that with the many
bridge fans, par golfers and
high score bowlers in Denver
that Denver could easily return
with the bridge, golf and bowl-
ing honors.
Denver was host to the convei>
tion in 1944 at which time it
was discovered that a National
Convention was a huge task to
put over. Actually it is a
National JACL project and re-
quires the full support of all
JACL Chapters members.
The convention will be a be-
ginning from which will evolve
new National Officers and with
them, new programs and policies
for the coming two years.
With the many important legis-
lations passed it will mark a
significant conclusions for the
two years of JACL ADC existence.
A complete summary of the con*
vention events are listed below
to help all those undecided as
to how to spend the Labor Day
Holiday. One will note that a
great variety of fun packed days
are interwoven with serious
business.
JAVCIL
NATIONAL COmHTtOH
SALT LAKE CITY
SEPT. 4-8
President Truman signed H.R.
3999. the Evacuation Claims Bill
which authorizes the Attorney
General to reimburse Japanese-
Americans for property losses
incurred by their forced removal
from the Pacific Coast. Larger
claims must be satisfied through
private bills submitted to Con-
gress.
All Japanese who went to Ja-
pan, either voluntarily or by de-
portation, are net entitled to
re imbursement
Congressional passage of H.R.
3999 was not only a major organ-
izational triumph for the JACL-
ADC but a crowning personal Vic-
tory for Mike Masaoka, national
legislative director of the JACL-
ADC. He carried this fight to a
successful finish against over-
whelming odds and a race against
time.
The President has also signed
H.R. 3586, the alien deportation
stay bill, which will aid sever-
al Japanese in this country. For
the first time in history Japa-
nese aliens are eligible for de-
portation relief on the same ba-
sis as other immigrants.
Mike Masaoka says: "These
legislative victories emphasize
again what cooperation and organ-
ization for the common good can
accomplish."
"These victories are the re-
sult of the cooperation of all
JACL chapters and members and
all who contributed to the Anti-
Discrimination Committee. With-
out this cooperation, financial
and otherwise, these bills would
not have passed.
con't page 2 col. 3
The city Election Commission
announced that registrations in
the city's 26 election districts.
Thej are formulating plans to
hold a three day registration
August 18, 19, and 20 in schools,
fire houses and other public
buildings.
Formerly, Denver voters regis-
tered in the city's 412 voting
precincts. The 1947 State Legis-
lature abolished precinct regis-
tration and gave cities permis-
sion to adopt their own registra-
tion plan.
An ordinance has been passed
by the City Council empowering
two registrars in each voting
district to administer an oath
of registration to any qualified
voter. This would permit Denver
voters to register in districts
other tnan their own, Working
people could register near their
place of work in stead of the
district in which they reside.
Paul V. Hodges, Jr. Commis-
sion Chairman, pointed out that
voters may register in the Com-
mission offices at the City Hall
any day except Saturd^ and Sun-
day between the hours of 8:30 am
and 5:00 pm.

A TRIBUTE
TO MASAOKA
Orchids to Mike Masaoka and
his staff In Washington, D.C.
for the grand Job they have done
In getting the Evacuation Claims
and Deportation Stay bills pass-
ed.
For Mike it has meant a lot
of hard work In the way of late
nights, endless contacting of
Congressmen, Senators and key
men In various government depart*
merits and gathering evidence and
material to substantiate his ar-
guments.
For Mike's staff ,it has also
meant a lot of hard, work, too.
The amount of typing,mimeograph-
ing, letter writing,telephoning,
and contacting involved is tre -
mendoue. The amount of material
I received from the Washington
office is evidence enough of the
volume work that must be done.
They are even moving to larger
quarters.

After working as legislative
director for two years, Mike has
won the respect and confidenceof
the men with whom he hae come in
contact. There are many amusing
stories of how Mike was first
treated and the present attitude
toward him. One is Of the guard
in the Pentagon Building who had
had Mike arrested as a suspi-
cious character in the beginning
and now proudly calls Mike hla
friend.
Mas Satow told us of running
into this same guard while on
his recent trip to Washington.
When the guard found out that he
was a Nisei, immediately asked
if he knew of Mike Masaoka.
Mike still has another piece
of legislation to fight for us,
the Judd Bill or Naturalization
Bill. This will mean a great
deal to the Issel, our parents,
to be able to become citizens
after all these years, it means
more opportunities will open up
for them. It also means the eli-
mination of another discrimina-
tory measure against us for
which so many Nisei boys fought.
Should it be said that he has
been given new honors or respon-
sibilities? Mike has been grant-
ed permission to practice before
the Board of Immigration Appeals
on immigration matters concern-
ing Japanese residents of this
country. The usual requirements
were waived in recognition of
the services which he and the
JACL have rendered to the Japa-
nese in this country on immigra-
tion and deportation.

CRITIC'S
CORNER
by Bill Hosokawa.
In the course of a bull ses-
sion the other day the conver-
sation got around to gardening
and all the money the hundreds
of gardeners in Los Angeles are
reported to be making.
Almost every other Nisei
with a lawnmower and a strong
back is reported to have bought
a used truck, had some "land-
scape architect" business cards
printed,and gone into business .
This, no doubt. Is an exaggera-
tion, but It's close enough to
the truth to merit comment.
There were three of us in
the discussion, and one fellow
viewed it this way: "I wouldnt
mind gardening. Lots of exer-
cise, working in the open.
Might be fun running a lawn
mower. The pay must be pretty
good, too."
But the second one saw it
like this: "What a swell rac-
ket that could be. Set up a
big company with about a hun-
dred guys working for ypu.
Spend a lot of money advertis-
ing, get a tricky name, line up
some big name accounts, cut
prices to a minimum. I'll bet
that in a couple of years you
could corner the market--force
out the little operators and
r eally run a business."
The first speaker probably
never will be rich. He Just
doesn't think in terms of how
to make money. The second, if
he's lucky, will make more
money than he ever will have
use forin gardening or any
otVior* buslnBss attempts. If
he's unlucky he'll go broke and
suffer from ulcers. or maybe
ha'll suffer from ulcers anyway.
All of which is in line with
our personal conviction that the
rich get richer, the poor get
poorer; the fat get fatter, the
thin get thinner.
More years ago than we care
to remember, a philosophy pro-
fessor tried to get over the
idea to us that "a man is what
he does." It was pretty hard to
understand that sentence then.
But now it's beginning to make
sense.

tlSPOPT ROUNDUP
by HIROSHI WAQA
Diamond warfare in the Nat-
ional circuit approached a new
pitch (pardon the pun) as the
contending Denver Nisei AC,
after salvaging a 19-14 decision
from Platteville, rejoiced with
Littleton* s 8-7 upset defeat at
the hands of a tough Ft. Morgan
club. As a result the two local
rivals are deadlocked for the
loop leadership, with all prob-
ability that their Aug. 22nd
clash may be the pennant decid-
ing game.
In the faster American league
the front-running Denver Busseis,
featuring heavy stick work and
Hldeo Hirose'e outstanding mound
work, continues on with their
pennant seeking campaign with a
pair of important second-half
victories. Tosh Nakamura's crew
increased their first half lead
over the contending Denver Mer-
chants with a 6-5 decision over
Brighton and downed Ft. Lupton
11-6. Meanwhile Shlg Terajia
gang pulled a 14-13 game out of
the fire from a surprising Gree-
ley club, thanks to George Nagai
and Lefty Noda in their 9th inn-
ing rally.
Other important results found
the usually hard-luck but very
capable Brighton outfit finally
clinching a close one, a 14-13
win over Ault, with Tom Shlbao's
clutch hurling an important fac-
tor.
Back in the National picture
the Ft. Morgan and Longmont
clubs are developing into a pair
of strong second half teams with
their latest performances and
before the end of the season may
damper both Littleton's and
DNAC's intentions. Ft. Morgan,
paced by the Nukaya brothers,
edged out Greeley 13-12 in 10
innings before dumping Little-
ton. Dubbed as the cellar team
the rookie Longmont nine, star-
ring their one-two pitchers in
Jim Kanemoto and Kay Sasaki,
have won three of theirlast four
games. Their victims have been
Ft. Morgan 11-10, Brighten 7-3,
and Greeley 14-3 and a 14-13
loss to Littleton since their
over-par playing streak.
Over in the softball trail s
the Triple "A" Beans Sport Shop
possessing a first half 5-1 rec-
ord are hinged in second spot.
The speedy Nisei team, composed
of three Georges" in the pitch-
ing department, namely George
Inal, George Goto and George
Nagai, and Lander Ito (now out
with an operation), Yosh Kawano,
speedy Rupe Aral and Tad Maru-
moto rounding-out the infield,
outfielders Frank Kamlbayashl,
Jack Ito, Jim Ota, Art Arita ,
Beans and Dick Yamamoto have
downed the Denver Police 13-4,
Mac's 6-4, Kilroy 8-4, Diamond
Cafe 10-8 and Griffith Motors
9-0. Their only loss has been a
2-0 decision to Brook's Sport-
wear.
Meanwhile at the Erie Grounds
Meach Nogaml's CSMC softball
team are in second place in .the

JULY 1948
NOTES:
....ffiPEEK-A-BftS
The NWAA girls had a grueling
Sunday afternoon recently during
the State Baseball tournament.
The gals played three games,
starting off at 1:00 p.m. at
City Park in the hot sun and
losing a heartbreaker there*
They won the second game at
Overland Park, and lost their
last game at 7:00 at City Park.
And no wonder, for by then the
gals were so tired they couldnt
even pick up a ball, let alone
throw it.
SUMI TASHIRO, home run queen
has really been slugging it out
on the diamonds.
Its certainly heartwarming
to see that Hakujin fans follow
our girls so closely. Overheard
one teenager come up to SUMI TA-
SHIRu and say, nDad saw you make
a homer last week, and we think
you're a swell player."
Petite KAZ TADA, veteran 3rd
baseman and SARA MIYOSHI, sweet
receptionist for DOC KOBAYASHI
really put heart and soul into
the game.
AKIK.0 SHIBATA, TRUE YASUI* S
sister arrived from Japan, and
for three hours, while MIN and
TRUE traipsed from depot to de-
pot, AKIKO sat on their porch
awaiting them.
Recent houseguest of the
GEORGE OHASHI'b was NAS NAKAGAWA,
very active member of the Chica-
go Chapter JACL, passing through
Denver on his way to the coast.
On June 30th, RUI TANIGUCHI
and KANA YORIMOTO hostessed a
going away party for MASAKO MI-
YAKE, who left for California.
Delightful refreshments were
served and bridge and progres-
sive rummy comprised the main
diversion of the evening.
Guests Included the Mesdemes
AMY MIURA, ETSU UYEDA, HARUKO
KOBAYASHI, FUMI YABE, PHOEBE SA~

delivery by Doc Stork, but as
yet the baby is nameless cuz Doc
Stork crossed up in orders and
delivered a baby girl stead of a

ver, has purchased a home here.

Philadelphia, is spending the
summer months here. He is stay-
ing at the home of TOSH ANDO.

COMMUNITY PlCNxC AT WILLIAMS PARK--The scenes above were taken at
the huge Nlhonjin picnic held on Sunday, June 20, at Williams Park.
Proceeds from the affair went to the flood victims in Vanport, Ore.
About a thousand people enjoyed the whole day outing. There were
games, races, and prizes for everyone. The photographs were taken
by "Kay" Yokouohi, brother-in-law of Helen Utaazawa.
