WAR DR AO KIN
The facilities and services
available to next of kin of Ni-
sei War Dead by the National JAC
L Arlington Cemetery Committee
and the Washington ADC office
are.
They will act as agent in ar-
rangement with the Army for the
usual Army funeral service at
Arlington. If desired, and no-
tified in advance, they will ar-
range private rites after the
Army service.
. t Families will be met in Wash-
ington.
Hotel reservations will be
secured.
Transportation to Arlington
Cemetery will be given, and also
if the family desires, they will
be taken on a special private
tour.
They will send home-town news
papers stories of rites and will
take pictures to be given to the
families.
Flowers will be ordered for
the family; a floral wreath is
sdyplied by the committee, and
for war dead from the Denver vi-
cinity, the Denver chapter sends
flowers.
The National JACl. Arlington
Committee and JACL ADC wish to
do as much for the families of
those burying their war dead at
Arlington as is possible. It
must be realized, however, that
committee members are privately
employed, and it is only with
difficulty that they, or ADC
staff members, can take time
from their daily work to assist
the families.
On November 17th, the Arling-
ton Committee participated in
the burial of PFC John Y. Tanaka
of Denver. The soldiers family
Mrs. Tsuyo Tanaka of 3635 Marion
Street together with Ruth, Carol
and Floyd Tanaka traveled to
Washington for the rites.
The Mountain Plains Regional
JACL office was called upon to
assist in making arrangements
for PFC Takashi Ito's refeurial
rites, which were performed at
Fairmont Cemetery with Dr. K.
Sasaki officiating.
Regional Director Roy Takeno
obtained the services of the
Charles Wickersham Post #1 to
form the Color Guard and the
Lowry Air Force Base for the fir-
ing squad.
** A floral tribute was sent to
the family from the Denver Chap-
ter.
The Mountain Plains District
tional Convention last September
with the following officers elec-
ted on a temporary basis; Chair-
man, Bessie Matsuda (Denver),
Vice-Chairman, Pat Ckura (Omaha),
Co-Vice-Chairman, Sam Ckamoto,
(Ft. Lupton) Secretary, Mami Ka-
tagiri, (Denver).
The first session was opened
by Chairman Bessie Matsuda who
welcomed all the delegates pre-
sent.
This morning session was devo-
ted to an explanation of the
JACL by Masao Satow, National Ex-
ecutive Director from Salt Lake.
Mr. Satow explained the purposes,
functions and program of the
JACL. He also told of the offi-
cial JACL publications, PACIFIC
CITIZEN and the JACL REPORTER
Mr. Satow discussed membersnip
in the JACL and declared: "the
work of the JACL is to protect
all people of Japanese Ancestry
wherever they are...we need a
strong and active organization.
Being organized we now know the
right people to approach when we
need help.
"Yet, the problem of the JACL
today, is in the lack of member-
ship in the local chapters. It
is a definite disadvantage when
we ask for help to have to tell
that we represent only 65OO mem-
bers."
Roy Takeno reported on the
Regional Office. It now serves
3 chapters and 13 committees in
the five states. Due to the
pressure of work here in Denver
he has not been able to visit
these chapters and committees
more often.
The afternoon session on JACL
Chapter Clinics was presided

Thanks to what the CRITICS
CORNER had to say about my appe-
tite last month I have lost ano-
ther beau. He was something
that called for a second glance,
too. A big apish sort of guy
with two heads, both quite use-
less mentally, but darn it, use-
ful enough to make him realize
he couldn't afford to feed me in
the style I was accustomed.
And while thanks are in order
our plaudits to Yuki Tanaka, who
took the minutes for the council
meetinga reading of which Is a
must for every nisei who missed
the council sessions.
She faithfully took the min-
utes, transcribed, edited, typed
mimeographed and put together an
attractive 17 page record of our
first district council meeting.
Here's one gal that gets the job
done right.
Don Yokoji designed and made
the registration badges and Mo-
lly Shiraiahl and Annie Takama-
tsu did a swell job of register-
ing as did Eml Katagiri and her
reception committee of 44 people
strong.
The Stardusters should have
the whole community's support
for their wonderful spirit of
cooperation. They are a swell
outfit, and we are indeed lucky
to have them in our community.
Inumerable others helped and
every part played by an lndivi -
dual is sincerely appreciated.
With groups like ours, Mike's
work in Washington should be a
cinch. Very incidentally, $7000
must be raised in Denver for the
current ADC campaign* the Issei
have already begun their cam-
paign, and it is with humbleness
that I, a Nisei, face the Issei,
who eo enthusiastically report
the amount raised each day* They
state with pride that the Nisei
have finally come of age and
that the JACL-ADC work is the
manifestation of their dreams
and £aith in the Niseis and Am-
erica*

Security Through Unity"
The renewal of JACL member-
ship for 1949 has been suggested
by Bessie Matsuda. For those
who have not Joined before or re*
newed their memberships last
year, payment now also applleB
on their 1949 dues.
The dues are $3*50 for one
year of which one dollar goes to
the National JACL and includes
the JACL Reporter, $1.50 is the
chapter dues and $1.00 for our
monthly chapter bulletin.
If the JACL had not taken the
steps It did in cooperating with
the army and the government at
the time of evacuation, where
would we, the Nisei, be today?
Or, if we didn't have an organi-
zation such as the JACL to fight
for all Japanese, Issei or Nisei
members or non-members, again,
where would tte be? There would
have been no relocation nor any
of the advantageous legislation
which the JkCL has accomplished.
The most recent triumph of
the JACL being the passage of
the Evacuation Claims Bill. This
gives any Issei or Nisei in this
country an opportunity to file a
claim against the United States
Government for losses sustained
by being forced to evacuate from
the West Coast either voluntari-
ly or involuntarily.
(Continued from page 1, Col. 1)
Final reburial rites were
held for Pvt. Joe Morishige on
November 30th at the Fairmont
Cemetery.
The Cathay Poet arranged the
military rites.
Color Eearers were: George
Otsuki and Norman Shibataj Color
Guards were Sei Tanaka and Hito-
shi Tashiro; Firing Squad which
was led by Commander Harry Shi-
bao was composed of: Harry Fuka-
ye, Harry Nakagawa, Kunio Ejioa,
Sam Terasaki, Nobu Ida, George
Tanaka, Sam Momli and Goro Saka-
guchl.
Pall BearerB were: Ed Chin
Tom Tsukijl, Jim Nakagawa, Noble
EJlma, Fred Kawakaml and Roy Nit-
ta.
The reburial rites were con-
ducted by Chaplain Gregg.
Funeral services were held
previous to the reburial rites
at the Tri-State Buddhist Church
with Rev. Tsunoda, Rev. Tamal
and Rev. Ida officiating.
The JACL is the only Nisei
organization on a national scale
which cooperates with other
groups on racial problems. It
publishes the PACIFIC CITIZEN
which has a nation-wide circula-
tion and Is read by Caucasians as
well as Nisei.
In the forthcoming brochure
to be published by National, Mas
Satow, JACL Executive Director,
writes: '*The JACL is our collec-
tive voice in the democratic pro-
cess and represents the organiz
ed expression of our hope for se-
curity. The bitter leseon taught
by evacuation la that unorganiz-
ed or weakly organized groups
are the first to be attacked by
the prejudiced and to suffer cur-
tailment of fundamental rights."
"JACL's accomplishments are
convincing evidence that fight-
ing discrimination in the Amer-
ican way, above board, In the
open, through courts of law, by
education, by proving ourselves
worthy of equal consideration
and treatment by an organize d
group benefits every individual
in the group."
Every Nisei is urged to Join.
"No one approached me or asked
me to Join", is a lame excuse."
Call the JACL office (CH 5990)
and a membership blank will be
mailed to you.

CRITIC'S
CORNER
by Bill HsmImml
As a Nisei who knows leer &-
bout other Denver Nisei than any
Denver Nisei (let's see you un-
puzzle that one), it's hardly in
our prlvince to make suggestions
as to the membership of the co?
ming year's cabinet.
But here's something to think
about: You could install Mike
Masaoka himself as president of
the Denver JACL chapter and the
whole sheeb&ng would flop as
flat as an egg foo young if he
didn't get co-operation.
Actually, It's no secret that
the operation of the Denver chap-
ter borders on the farcical. The
cabinet meets, it makes the de-
cisions, and then undertakes 99
per cent of the work involved in
carrying out the program. And
then when all the dirty detail?
have been sweated out, the mem-
bership comes along and enjoys
the fruits of the inner core's
labors
This isn't the president's
fault, or the cabinet's fault.
The blame lies Bolely with the
membership which, apparently,
has neither the interest nor the
gumption to make the chapter' e
activities its business.
And so the chapter gets drag-
ged around like a bull by the
ring in its nose, and presumably
It prefers this to the alterna-
tive of getting out and doing a
little work.
This situation isn't unique
in Denver. We could probably
substitute the names of a score
or more JACL chapters and the
shoe would pinch in the same
places.
Consequently, getting anyone
to head a JACL chapter is about
as easy as persuading him to
give a guillotine a test run.
You can hardly blame them for
their reluctance--all they face
is a mess of headaches, a full
quota of work, and more critizl-
sm than it's fair for any volun-
teer to assume.
The new president of the Den-
ver chapter, whoever it may be,
no doubt would welcome no Christ
mas gift greater than a chapter
wide promise of co-operation.
It's little enough of a gift to
make a worthwhile organization

The' fact the Democrats won
the recent election has increas-
ed Mr. Masaoka's work and crea-
ted some new problems. He de-
clared, "Anticipating a Republl -
can 81st Congress, we laid the
groundwork for the passage of
the Naturalization Bill on that
basis during the session of the
80th Congress.
There are other legislative
matters that have to be presen-
ted to this session of Congress

an Amendment to Public Law 863
whereby the Attorney General's
ruling on Japanese Deportation
cases be final. Another is the
admittance of more soldier

NOTES:
......fyPEEK-A-B&S
A handsome trio of medicos,
GSORGJ TAK3N0, HOWARD SUiNAGA,
and CHILI FUJISAKI were seen
chatting in front of the J?L0-
rence building recently*
BILL HATANAKA, second to our
GEORGE MASUNAG3, when it comes
to sqiliring pretty girls was
seen at the District Council
Dance with our queen, ROSE SHI-
RAMIZU. With them were the ever
faithful twosome, FUMI UYEMURA
and NORMAN 3HIBATA with the WAR-
REN UJIFUSA'S from Wyoming way
holding up the rear.
MOLLY SHIRAI3HI and DON YOKO-
JI were the workingest couple at
the Council Meeting, ably assist-
ed by ANNIE TAKAMATSU, a sweet
lil number.
That guy BILL, a lil bald but
mighty cutefrom the UJIFUSA
clan in v/orland Wyo. Yummy 1
Wonder if K2Y0SHI OTSUKA-Sed-
gewick, dared to take home those
"sheer* nylons bought at the
Thousand.. Club Luncheon auction.
Mighty lot of 'splaining, eh ,
KIYOSHI?
KUNI YAMAMOTO-Lyman, Nebraska
gets our vote for being the most
absent delegate at the council
meetings, and we just cant fig-
ure out "who" she is.
Seldom seen ROY and RUTH TB-
RADA were seen dancing at the D-
X Dance, and
making her debut was CHUCK
SHIBATA, looking mighty cute
dancing with the D-U bunch.
HELEN TANAKA gets our vote
for being the best dressed wo-
man at the Council Meetings.
HARU TANAKA looked mighty
smart in a black faille suit
with a very smart feathery hat.
T0K3 and FU3AK0 SATO and their
two children who have been visi-
ting the SAKATAS will soon re-
turn to their home in L. A.
Cant figure out what monkey
business La Juntan, SAM MAYSDA
was up to, but that mischievous
smile couldn't have emanated
from happiness on seeing MITZ
KAN3K0, who also went around
with a suspicious grin.
Dear ROY INOUYEs (La Jara-
Alamosa) Are there any more at
home like you? Just hoping,
peek! A BOO.'
