GUEST EDITORIAL
John Sakayama Finance Chairman
tje Prai) Sij-

Again this year the Mile-
Hi Chapter can boast of
having the largest ohapter
per capita in the United
States. It is an honor to
be so recognized because of
the small Japanese popula-
tion in this district. We
congratulate Chairman Harry
Sakata for' this splendid
job.
we can hardly realize the
time and effort contributed
by every member of the com-
mittee in bringing this
years membership "over the
top." It was a job well
done. This whole hearted
support by the Denver com-
munity is certainly an in-
spiring challenge to other
cities. May they all follow
suit in the years to come.
It requires a great deal
of money to maintain and
operate the National.. JACL
as well as keeping each
chapter in good standing in
its community by partici-
pating with, and contributing
to,, all worthwhile organi-
zations. To fulfill our
obligation the MileHi
Chapter, again this year,
has planned benefit sooials.
We hope that every member
will do his utmost 1 making
each activity a very suc-
cessful one by attending and
participating. As in the
past, we can look forward to
each occasion as an enjoy-
able one.
Our first benefit will be
a bingo benefit to be held
Saturday, May 9th, at the
D-X Cafe. Keep that date in;
mind, and lets have a big;
turn out.
SUPPORT YOUR CHAPTER AND
COME OUT AND JOIN THE CROWD.
REMEMBER, SATURDAY, MAY 9 th*
FROM 7-12, AT THE D-X CAFE,
WHERE PARKING SPACE IS PRO- -
VIDED FOR ALL.

REC'D BY


John Noguchi
For the short term that,
this cabinets been in of-
fice it has accomplished a
great deal. It makes ne
feel like a-proud papa. Ev-
en before we* got accustomed
to our new jobs, the Ameri-
can Red Cross asked for our
aid. We asked GAY OZAMOTO
to "head the Red Cross drive
and presto, she took over
and she and her committee
composed of ETHEL YANA3E
and' HANA TAKAMINE turned
out an excellent job.
In behalf of the fchap-
-ter and cabinet, I want to
thank GAY, ETHEL and HANS
for their fine work and
above all, their gracious
willingnes to take over
the job. Its the part
these girls play in commu-
nity activities that.go to
build up obr respect in the
community*
Our biggest project has
been the membership drive.
All the solicitors have
done a very good job. At
the official close of the
drive, the group had soli-
cited 550 members. HARRY
SAKATA, manber ship chairman
extended the drive another
week to give his helpers
another chance to top their
original goal of 600, giv-
ing them an added incentive
of a free dinner that hed
finance* if the quota were
met. 600 is a terrific fig-
ure, judging that more than
600 personal contacts had
to be made to secure the
amount.
JOHN SAKAYAMA, finance
chairman, is heading a com-
mittee to sponsor a Benefit
Bingo to raise funds for
National Headquarters. This
money will go to National
to carry on the various re-
gional offices and the main
office. This is the first
big doings for this cabinet
and we earnestly solicit
your support. Wed like to
see all our projects go
over like the Red Cross

' Someone observed the
other day that despite Den-
vers rash of teen-age van-
dalism, the Nisei-Sansei
community has not been in-
volved. He wanted to know
why.
As far back as I can re-
member, juvenile delinquency
has never been a serious
problem among Japanese
Americans. The problem in
the Lil Tokyos was that of
adult delinquency and there
was plenty of that.
Denvers teen-age van-
dalism has been senseless,
vicious and pointless. It
is likely that the perpet-
rators were bitter, frus-
trated youngsters.
It would seem, then, that
Nisei-Sansei teen-agers
somehow have kept from be-
coming bitter and frustra-
ted. The churches, clubs
and athletic organizations
outside the schools deserve
a great deal of credit for
this. But the bulk of the
credit---and the blame when
things go wronggoes ulti-
mately to the home.
The home is where the
Japanese Americans shine.
Strong family ties are an
old world heritage that we
Nisei, and the Sansei too,
can continue to treasure
and foster.
Drive and Membership Drive.
JOHN SAKAYAMA is also lin-
ing up a fishing derby for
you fishing fans.
We would like to sponsor
other projects in which
you, the membership might
be interested. Please let
us know your wants- and we
will arrange to sponsor
them. You can help by tak-
ing part in these projects
and making a rollicking
good year filled with all
kinds of activities.
