UNITY COUNCIL
MEMBERSHIP DRIVE
The Denver Unity Council is
opening its annual membership
drive with a luncheon at the Al-
bany Hotel, Mr, Joseph D, Loh-
man, consultant to the Chicago
Park Police on minority group re-
lations, was the speaker.
Through the untiring efforts
of its members the work of the
Council has shown definite pro-
gress, The Unity Council was in-
strumental in gaining fishing
privileges for our Issei, When
a Nisei girl was refused admis-
sion to a local beauty school*
the Council intervened and now
the school will accept Nisei stu-
dents.
Discrimination in local mpvie
houses and downtown restaurants
against other minorities has
been overcome to some extent;
and treatment of minority groups
by Police Officers has improved,
Future activities of the Coun-
cil are a drive to secure fair
employment practices in Colorado
and to acquaint all citizens
with and secure enforcement of
the Colorado Civil Rights Law,
A new service which the Coun-
cil has started recently is a
monthly newsletter to members.
It is free to those who have a
membership of $5,00 or more,
Mr, L, E, Evans, President of
the Kirby Distributing Company
and Chairman of the Membership
Drive says? "The goal of the
Denver Unity Council this year
is to make Denver FIRST in the
protection of the rights and the
use of the skills and talents of
all Denver citizens. We want
and need every civic-minded citi-
zen to join with us in eliminat-
ing bigotry and discrimination.
This must be a COMMUNITY effort
if it is to succeed.
offer as a part of its over-all
services to all persons of Japa*
nese ancestry in the United

On the local chapter level it
was decided (l) making forms for
the filing of claims available
to all interested persons;
(2) to make available general
public infc rmation relating to
the filing of such claims and
necessary translations to all in-
terested persons and; (3) (after
much debate and a roll call deci-
sion) it was decided that each
chapter provide stenographic ser-
vices for those desiring it.
Dr, C, P, Carman and Mr, T,
Kako have volunteered their ser-
vices as interpreters* Bessie
M&tsuda, Masa Nakayama and Chiye
Horiuchi will render stenogra-
phic help.
More interpreters and typists
v/ill be needed and anyone who
will help will be greatly appre-
ciated. Those interested in
helping in any way, please con-
tact the JACL office (CH 5990)
or any of the above girls.
The claim forms will be avail
able soon at the JACL office,

Summary Report
op National Council.
Meetings -
National President Hito Okada
commented upon the accomplish-
ments of the past two years, es-
pecially the two major legisla-
tive successes, stay of depor-
tation and the evacuation claims
he also mentioned the successful
Oyama Land Case and the Takaba-
sh i Fishing case in the United
States Supreme Court.

erations showed an income of
$27,649.30 with expenditures of
$25,709.40.
The Nominating Committee is
to be made up of a National
Chairman plus a representative
from each of the District Coun-
cils. Each District Council will
suggest a nominee for each of-
fice, but the overall committee
will sift the nominees and pre-
sent a slate six months prior
to the National Convention,
Chairman John Maeno of Los
Angeles reported for the Commit-
tee on Legal Matters, The reco-
mmendations adopted called for
the National President to ap-
point a Legal Committee for a 2
year term, to be composed of 1/3
non-attorneys, that all legal
matters by National JACL be re-
ferred to this committee, that
the committee submit recommen-
dations to the National Board
with regard to participation in
legal matters by National JACL
and be responsible for the re-
search and filing of any JACL
briefs, that they make a survey
of activities of persons repre-
senting legal interest of niseis
for the protection of the niseis
that the sum of $1000 be appro-
priated in the budget for the
needs of this committee.
Suggestions were made for im-
plementing the membership drives
in local chapters as well as en-
couraging member participation
in local chapter activities and
making JACL membership meaning-
ful at the local level. On the
matter of Issei membership there
will be no change in the present
regulations restricting member-
ship to citizens.

MOUNTAIN-PLAIN
01STRICT COUNCIL
A district council meeting is
tentatively being planneu this
winter with Denver as the host
chapter. Representatives will
be invited from areas which have
no committees or chapters to ac-
quaint them with the JACL pro-
gram and to encourage them to
organize and affiliate with the
national organization,
%
The Mountain-Plains District
Council was formed at the recom-
mendation of National JACL Head-
quarters with Denver, Fort Lup-
ton and Omaha Chapters as the nu-
cleus. The district will in-
clude Wyoming, Nebraska, Colora-
do, New Mexico, Oklahoma and
Texas*
Some of these states have ac-
tive JACL Committees but as yet
have not formed chapters. This
area east of the Rockies has
been Jche only region which has
not had a district council.
DEPORTATION
STAY BILL
According to the Washington
Office of the JACL ADC a recent
issue will enable ineligible a-
liens residing illegally in this
country to change their status
to that of permanent residents.
Effective September 2, an a-
lien ineligible to citizenship
residing unlawfully in the Uni-
ted States and so subject to de-
portation may apply to his local
immigration office to have his
status changed.
The alien making application
must go through the motions of
being served with a warrant of
arrest for deportation, in order
that he may be put in a category
where he can apply for relief
under the stay of deportation
law. The alien is advised to
furnish the immigration officer
with the following papers?
1, Official certifications est-
ablishing his relationship to
those he claims would suffer
hardship by his deportation,
and if his dependents are citi-
zens of the United States, evi-
dence of their relationship.
2, Documentary evidence to show
that the alien has resided con-
tinuously in the United States
for seven years or more and was
residing here on July 1, 1948,
3, Affidavits of two witnesses,
preferably American citizens,
who can vouch for his good mo-
ral character for the preceding
five years. If employed, an
additional affidavit from his
employer will help.
This is the initial step, it
involves many additional steps,
with final action depending on
Congress approving the recommen-
dation by the Attorney General,
based on finding of the local
immigration offices.
1000 CLUB NEEDS
MORE MEMBERS
The "1000 Club" has been form-
ed for the purpose of supporting
the work of the National JACL
Headquarters.
Ed Matsuda, Denver membership
chairman for the "1000 Club" re-
minds everyone that one of the
ways of supporting this program
is to join the "1000 Club".
Tosh Ando, Dr, T. Mayeda, Roy
Takeno and George Furuta are
the Denverites who became mem-
bers at the recent national con-
vention.
National Chairman George Ina-
gaki has designated George Furu-
ta as the membership chairman of
the newly formed Mountain-Plains
district.
The Denver Chapter recognizes
the importance of the work of
the Denver Unity Council and has
again given $50,00, The Chapter

Policy Board Organizations along
with several civic, church and
fraternal groups. Roy Takeno,

activities chairman, announced
that auditions will be held for
the benefit talent extravaganza
to be held in December, at each
practice session of the Star-
dusters orchestra. Practices
are held at the Buddhist Church

sustain the Social Service com-
mittee and other community pro-
jects which the JACL sponsors.

not so talented, but willing to
help this worthy cause is wel-
comed to join in putting over
a big show.
DENVER CHAPTER PARTICIPATES IN
ARLINGTON BURIAL
Following up the recommendations of the National Veterans Commit-
tee of the JACL to participate in paying tribute to the return of
Nisei War Dead, the Denver chapter unanimously voted at their last
cabinet meeting to send floral tribute to the Arlington burial of
Corporal Jimmie T. Kokubu, brother of Mrs, Charles Fujisaki, who was
killed in action on October 17, 1944 in the Epinol area near Bruyere.

I sat in on the meeting of
the Program-and Activities com-
mittee at Salt Lake, which was
chaired by Henry Tani of St.
Louis, a vigorous, hand waving,
fast talking, W. 0. Field-lsh
looking Nisei, who was well
worth the $15.00 registration
fee to see in action.
Henry Tani
The recom-
mendations, on
the chapter
level, that
Mr. Tani's com-
mittee submit-
ted are basic
and necessary
for the con-
tinued success
of the JACL
chapters,
Considering certain locali-
ties, the minimum standards set
for the chapters by the commit-
tee would be hard to maintain,
nevertheless, a challenge to
each chapter, its officers, and
its members.
Each of us should bear in
mind the scope of local chapter
activities this committee, in
part, recommends:
1. Emphasis upon programs for
younger Nisei.
Denver Chapter attempts this
in providing chaperones for
the Young People*s Society,
but we need more membership
participation in this. We
secured camperships, support
The Boy Scouts, and other or-
ganizations that look to us
as the sustaining community
organization.
2. Chapters to give more leader-
ship to social and athletic func-
tions within their communities.
Denver chapter presents bas-
ketball awards, and sponsors
tournament bowlers. This is

Associate Director
Denver YWCA
Living in today's world re-
quires a degree of cooperation
such as was not required in the
days when a man had to travel
all day on horseback to visit
his neighbor on the next farm.
We are all neighbors the world
over and good neighborllness is
a way of life that we all must
cultivate consciously. Knowing
and enjoying all kinds of people
from all sorts of background la
one of the privileges of living
in today's world, so why not en-
joy all the opportunities offer-
ed for fellowship?
The Denver Y.W.C.A. is an or-
ganization which dedicates it-
self to such an ideal. For the
person Interested in public af-
faires and social action, as
JACL members usually are, the
YWCA offers a wide variety of
reading material on current
events in the Public Affairs
Workshop at 1545 Tremont which
is open every week day and even-
ing to anyone who wants to read
and study. The Public Affaire
Seminar, the first Wednesday of
each month, is open to both men
and women. Dinner together at
5:45 p.m. in the Tea Room is fol-
lowed by a talk on one of the
hot issues of the day and a dis-
cussion follows.
Every first Friday of the
month there's International Open
House at the Y where from fif-
teen to thirty-five different

not active participation, it
is Just doling out. We en-
courage the socially and ath-
letically inclined to come in
and show us how to run this
sort of program.
To provide for active parti-
cipation in the life of the lar-
ger community.
Our association with the Den-
ver Unity Council is about
all we can be proud of.
4. Concern ourselves with higher
standards of citizenship.
Under the leadership of Ben
Miyahara, the local JACL will
take great strides forward
this year by the registration
of voters amor) the Nisei.
For any chapter to live up to
these minimum standards is a ter-
rific task for the officers.
It is my dream that as each
member is secured we shall ask
him what committees he would be
interested in serving on, and
that some day each Nisei will
find a niche for himself in our
community through the scope of
the JACL activities.
AcK NOW LE9GEMEMT
nationalities gather together
for fun and fellowship.
These activities are open to
anyone. Then the Young Adults
of the Y have excursions, Inter-
est groups and dances every week,
as well as clubs to meet every
interest. There are special
clubs for young married women
with nurseries provided. Y-Teens
have clubs and canteens both at
1545 Tremont and 2460 Welton.
The Health Education Department
offers classes for every age
group and even a family plunge
on Friday night.
Girls and women are cordially
invited to become YWCA members
in Denver and thus Join a circle
of friendship which extends
around the world for there is
a YWCA in 65 foreign countries,
and a membership in Denver is
transferrable to Tokyo, Calcutta
or Rome.
The YWCA is one of many organ-
izations which would welcome
your participation. Whether it
be the Unity Council, the Urban
League or some other civic or
social organization, we urge you
to make your valuable contribu-
tion to the community in associa-
tion with people of varied raci-
al and nationality backgrounds.
Today's World is One World and
All the People in Denver should
know each other better so why
not share in an inclusive fellow-
ship.
(Cont. from Page 1, Col. 1)
The program and activities
committee suggested to raise
the level of chapter programs,
leadership training workshops,
more personal appearances at lo-
cal chapters by National person-
nel, emphasis on programs for
younger Nisei, the use of chap-
ter bulletins, chapters to give
more leadership to social and
athletic functions within our
communities, to provide facili-
ties for active participation in
the life of the larger community
concern themselves with higher-
standard of citizenship.
The Nisei Veterans Committee
suggested local chapters work
out programs appealing to veter-
an,, local chapters participate
in paying tribute to the return
of Nisei war dead to their com-
munities, that through the Ar-
lington National Memorial Commits
tee the Nisei war dead be paid
tribute on Memorial and Armis-
tice days, that this same com-
mittee pay tribute to all Nisei
G.I.'s annually on the anniver-
sary of the rescue of the Lost
Battalion.
The Pacific Citizen Committee
asked that an additional member
be added to the staff, that
staff salaries be raised, and
that $2500 be appropriated annu-
ally from the JACL and the JACL-
ADC.
The BULLETIN acknowledges the
receipt of a $5.00 donation from
Mrs. Asa Kamada, mother of Mrs.
George Yamaguchi, whose wedding
picture appeared in last month's
issue.

recommended that an Issei or a
Kibel be added to the national
staff to accompany national per-

CRITIC'S
CORNER
by Bill Hosokava.
Denver Nisei have had a fleet-
ing look the last few weeks at
both President Truman and the
man who wants his Job. Which-
ever way you've decided, we hope
you'll go to the polls come No-
vember and cast your ballot.
The President turned on his
Inconsiderable charm for Denver-
ites and took ample advantage of
the prestige of his office. Gov-
ernor Dewey displayed a highly
polished oratorical ability. But
so busy were they with the parti-
sanship of practical politics
that it is doubtful they added
to their personal statures as
statesmen.
Unfortunately, it seems to be
a part of the American way every
four years to place the blame
for all the world's ills on the
opposition party. Political tub-
thumpers from presidential candi-
dates on down--of both parties
carry this blame-placing to a
ridiculous degree.
They see nothing but desola-
tion and clamlty, ruin and na-
tional suicide If the opposition
should win office. They Bee a
great and bountiful future, a
life well anointed with milk and
honey, if they and their cohorts
are voted into office.
Strange that if the adminis-
tration was manned by such a
crew of rascals, we haven't
thrown them out before. And if
the opposition was a bunch of
blithering idiots, why werent
we told prior to an election
year?
Fortunately the American peo-
ple have learned to accept cam-
paign hot air with a good mea-
sure of salt. Despite the natu-
rally deleterious effect of bom-
bast and invective, it does the
people good to have the hopefuls
stumping the country and placing
their promises on the record.
A long-suffering American pub-
lic has learned not to expect
too much in the way of fulfill-
ment, either of party platforms
or campaign promises. But in a
democracy they have the right to
put the rascals out when they
blunder too often. Thats the
nice part of it.

solation glories, defeating a
vastly improved Longmont nine
