Johnny Kurachi gathered enougi
votes to win over incumbent
George Matsumonji* Chiye Horiu-
chi scored a victory over Mami
Katagiri for the office of se-
cond vice president, while Dr.
George Kubo likewise edged out
Dr* Mike tTba for third vice
president*
In the secretarial race, Sa-
chi Maruyama secured a majority
over Yaye Sakaguchi and Iris Wa-
tanabe for the cabinet post of
recording secretary and in the
closest contest of all Haru Ta-
naka eked a win over Mitsue Su-
gano and Jean Fujimoto for the
corresponding secretary position*
A small plurality was enough
for Ray Koyama who gained the
coveted treasurer's seat in Pre-
sident Ando's new cabinet* Har-
ry Sakata and Helen Tanaka were
the unsuccessful candidates for
the position*
A state vide committee has
been formed to push a Fair Em-
ployment Practice Commission
Bill through the Colorado Gener-
al Assembly* The chairman of
this committee is Judge Joseph
Cook* Min Yasui is a member of
this permanent executive commit-
tee and is on the Legislative
Committee* There are a few more
Nisei working on other commit-
tees*
Minority groups, civic and so-
cial welfare organizations,
churches, lodges, veterans or-
ganizations, labor unions and
others have been contacted to
help support this fight for a
FEPC
The leaders feel that the
time is ripe to push such legis-
lation* People in Colorado have
become more aware of existing
discriminatory practices and re-
alize that one way to eliminate
them is through legislation*
The JACL sent the following
resolution to State Representa-
tives and senators in the Denver
and Brighton area, which was
drawn up by Attorney Min Yasui*
"WHEREAS-, we, Ameriean citizens
of Japanese anoestry, and resi-
dent of the State of Colorado,
fully realize through bitter ex-
perience that the equal opportu-
nity to work is an essential
right of all Americans, regard-
NATIONAL
IlfilSIATfVI PROGRAM
Mike Masaoka, legislative di-
rector of the JACL Anti Discri-
mination Committee, recently an-
nounced the legislative program
outlined for the 81st Congress*
The types cf legislation con-
templated are:
1* Those the JACL-ADC will
initiate and sponsor*
2* Those of interest to us,
but which will receive pri-
mary support from other
organizations*
3* Those concerning general
civil rights and social
legislation*
4* Those the JACL-ADC will
oppose as detrimental to
the country and people*
Foremost under legislation
which they will iniate and spon-
sor is the Naturalization-Immi-
gration Bill* This bill was in-
troduced on the opening day of
Congress in three separate iden-
tical bills.
At the outbreak of hostility
Germans, Italians, Japanese and
Niseis were ordered to place all
contraband articles with the
Justice department The return
of these articles were later au-
thorized, but many were found to
be damaged or missing* Since
this order was not part of the
actual evacuation program, these
losses axe not claimable under
the Evacuation-Claim Law* The
ADC expects to sponsor legisla-
tion claiming these losses*
They propose an amendment to
the law governing the return of
vested property to those aliens
who were not detained, to in-
clude law abiding aliens who
were paroled or released from
detention, sinoe many isseis
were held for questioning only
and later released*
less of race, color, creed or na-
tional origin, Which essential
right is often denied;
AND WHEREAS*, 33,390 American sol-
diers of Japanese ancestry, many
of whom came from Colorado,
fought during the recent war to
disprove the raolst fallacies of
superiority of race, and whereas
we are resolved that their sacri-
fices shall not have been in
vain;
AND WHEREAS; we as persons cf Ja-
panese ancestry, know that In
times of economic depression mem-
bers of minority groups are the
first to be fired from jobs, as-
suring no economic security to
suoh members of minority groups;
and that as members of a minori-
ty group, we are subject to this
type of economic instability;
AND WHEREAS; we believe that the
full utilization of human re-
sources is essential for the eco-
nomic and social well-being of
the communities in which ve live,
and that job discrimination mili-
tates against such maximum utili-
sation of available manpower;
AND WHEREAS; as American citizens
and as citizens of the State of
Colorado, we firmly believe that
all persons should be given fair
job opportunities in this state
so that economic democracy will

MEMBERSHIP PMV£
JANUARY FEBRUARY
The JACL National Membership
Drive for 1949 will be conducted
by the 68 chapters in a joint
campaign in January and February.
Special membership leaflets
have been prepared by Kasao
Satow, National Executive Direc-
tor* The national goal is ten
thousand members* If each chap-
ter increased its membership by
a third, this goal would be a-
chieved*
The accomplishments of the
JACL deserve the support of all
Nisei. Bessie Matsuda, past pre-
sident of the Chapter says: "I
think every Nisei who had to e-
vacuate should feel obligated to
become a member if he is not one
already. They have the opportu-
nity to claim for compensation
from the Government for losses
incurred through the Evacuation
Claims Bill* This was made pos-
sible through the efforts of the
JACL-ADC program*"
The dues are $3.50 a year and
include the National dues and
subscriptions to the JACL REPOR-
TER and the BULLETIN. Chiye Ho-
riuchi, newly elected 2nd V*P*
and Chairman of Membership will
be in charge of the local cam-
paign.
A subscription to the PACIFIC
CITIZENS is $3.00 and every mem-
ber who wants to keep informed
of JR.CL-ADC activities will want
to read it*
DENVER CHAPTER!

It is with a strange sort of
regret that the 1948 cabinet
bows out to hare the new eablnet
replace us*
When I asked Mas Nakayama, as
her last official move, to oall
the cabinet to remind them of
the cabinet meeting held on Jan*
20th, she expressed her opinion
that her duties were not half
bad, that she had rather enjoyed
them* She seemed reluctant to
see her term of office end*
Talking it over with Ben Mi-
yahara, Harry Sakata, and George
Matsumonji, they expressed the
same opinion* It's an experi-
ence in itself* Each of us grew
richly and could not hare gotten
away without realizing the JACLb
terrific importance in the com-
munity, in the very lives of ev-
ery person of Japanese ancestry*
Perhaps the JACL leaders put
too much emphasis on its impor-
tance* A lot of people think us
fools, screaming for equality in
naturalization, civil rights,
etc. Come down to earth, they
say* But let's pause ana con-
sider*
It's fortunate that the Nisei
have gone ahead and organized
social, athletic, cultural, in-
terracial and religious groups
looking objectively at such
they are an admirable lot, orga-
nized for- one purpose or another
and thank goodness, the Nisei
have asserted their imagination
and effort to organize them*
These organizations are meet-
ing the various interest needs
of the Nisei. I'm thankful
that I can Join any of them to
please my esthetic or gregarlan
nature* But I'm happier still
that I can join the JACL and
know that by so doing my inter-
ests, my rights as a citizen of
this oity, state and country
will be protected by an organi-
zation that is accepted, recog-

LETTER WRITING HINTS -
Have you ever attempted to
write to your congressman or
senator to let them know how you
as one of his constituents, feel
about certain issues or bills?
You are ready to write such a
letter, then you wonder: How
should I address my congressman?"
Snowing the right way to address
Him is half the letter* The
body of the letter is what yxu
want to get off your chest, so
that part is easy*
The following are some point-
ers which will help you*
1. Use your own stationery* A
letter is preferable to a post-
oard or telegram*
2. Put your address on it* He
likes to know you are a consti-
tuent and usually wants to reply.
3. Use your own words*
4* Limit your letter to one
issue* Identify it by popular
name or bill number*
5* Be brief, but give the rea-
sons why you are for or against
the legislation*
6* 3e courteous* A rude let-
ter seld fluences legislators*
7. Hope he agrees with you,
don't demand* A Congressman may
be the servant of the people but
he doesn't like to be ordered
around*
8. Bend your letter when it
will count most* A letter too
early or too late loses its im-
pact.
9* Know what committee your
Congressman is on. His commit-
tee hearings, held before the
measure reaches the floor for
action, give him earlier and
more thorough knowledge* He al-

nized and respected.
For what can I or you as an
individual or as a member of an
unknown group say,that will make
an impression? I know the JACL's
reputation and I'll stake my
$3*50 yearly in it gladly to
have it speak for me with regard
to equality, civil rights, fair
employment practices, low cost
living and housing, extended so-
cial security, broader veteran's
program, social service, equal
educational opportunities, et al.
I'm for them all, aren't you?
The JACL is*
At this time, I want to com-
mend you members no end for the
wonderful oabinet you've selec-
ted for 1949* Each one of them
will represent you well*
These are the people you have
picked to "aell you to the Am-
erican public* These are the
people you picked to make possi-
ble everything you believe the
JACL should undertake. Let them
know what you are thinking about
and work with them to the end
that your wishes will be rea-
lized.

jects covered by his committee

or twice on the same subject. If
the issue still isn't settled
get others to add their voice*

The Honorable Ed C* Johnson

The Honorable John Carroll

ciation for work well donea

the floor* Congress are hu-

The Nisei should be more ar-
ticulate* Especially, when such
Important legislation affecting
them directly is being consider-
ed. There Is the Equality in
Naturalization and Immigration
Bill before the House and the
proposed Colorado FEPC Bill*
Now, that you have had this
coaching from the sidelines,
write and tell them what you
think.
(Cont. from Page 1, Col. 3)
Since the occupational pro-
gram In Europe and Japan has
been prolonged it is only to be
expected that the Soldier-Bridea
Act be extended, and furthermore
the ADC expects to introduce a
bill for the entrance of children
of these marriages*
They contemplate the intro-
duction of bills for statehood
for Hawaii and also an amend-
ment to the Deportation-Stay
Law so that the Attorney-General
can suspend all cases unless Con-
gress deems any unfavorable*
The ADC will support, under
general Civil Rights legislation,
bills for FEPC, Anti-Lynch, eli-
mination of poll taxes, and the
establishment to a civil rights
section*
Under social legislation,they
will support low cost housing,
and cost of living,aid to insure
minimum edueational opportunity,
extended social security cover-
age and a more realistic veteran
benefit program.

CRITIC'S
CORNER
by bill Hose
It was cold, clear art dry*
outdoors last New Year's Eve*
But within the Albany Hotel Ball-
room it was hot, a trifle foggy
and definitely moist. A good
time was had by all.
If the gallonage of fluid re-
freshments consumed is any crl -
terion, the Nisei have become
both thoroughly Americanized art
of age. Whether this 18 good or
bad, encouraging or discouraging
progress or otherwise, we shall
leave to the judgment of moral-
ists. iiThlch we are not.
*****
Tosh Ando, ehosen last year
as the community's outstanding
young man by the Denver Nisei
Business art Professional Mens
group, is the new chapter prexy.
Whether he is to be extended
congratulations or condolences
Is something ohly the community
can determine. The Job of JACL
leader never has been a soft
touch* The organization always
has had to fight indifference.
In certain periods of its his-
tory, outright hostility was- add'
ed to the burden. Now it's most-
ly indifference again.
But both the organization,
and the leader in the local in-
stance, deserve support. Enthu-
siasm can overcome a good many
deficiencies.
*****
One of the projects the chap-
ter might consider this year is
a registry of all Issel and Ni-
sei in the area 18 years or old-
er. The registry would show,
name, address, age, place of
birth, prewar address, occupa-
tion, special interests and
skills, union and business affi-
liations and perhaps other perti-
nent data.
Such & registry would main-
tain Its value only if it is
kept up to date. But onoe com-
plied with reasonable thorough-
ness it would attract sociolo-
gists, prospective employers,
bill collectors, husband-and-
wife-seekers, newspapermen, club
organizers and many others* Be-
