The kile^Hi Chapter with
the help of the Ft. Lupton

amd Bowling Tournament on
November 27th and 28th.
A good progran of fellow-

we hope that as host, each
member will make it his
personal responsibility to
take part in the affairs
and show our guests a good
time.

Sgt* Miyamura, In his
humble way wants to help
the cause of the JACL and
the Japanese in America,
and we hope that every mem-
ber of the Mile-Hi Chapter,
600 members strong will
attend to show him that we
are a very'small fraction
of the Nisei in the United
States that he represents,
and that we are backing him
in his endeavors*
Seldom does one have the
opportunity to honor a
Congressional Medal of Honor
winner, as most have made
the supreme sacrifice be-
fore gaining the award. No
praise will ever be so
great, no eulogy ever so

DEAR CONVENTION DELEGATES:
Welcome to our Mile High City of Denver, as we convene
for the Mountain Plains JACL Convention*
As we attend the convention, it would be well to be
realistic about the program.most of the JACL Chapters
desire, the type of organization we wish to have, since
the national legislative program has been successfully
completed, and what leaders around the country feel the
function of a JACL should be or could be under such
circumstances.
The theme of our convention, "Where Do We Go From
Here?", designates asking your full participation and in-
viting a healthy response from the chapters to guide all
of us in mapping plans for the future which will be very
important as the organization becomes more and more de-
centralized. If this is inevitable, each chapter will
need greater initiative to plan its activities to be of
service to its community and to retain its members* Of
course, there may be national activities in which we
engage* This new phase we are entering requires much
planning*
Your host, the Mile-Hi Chapter, assisted by the Fort
Lupton Chapter, has been diligently planning this as
your convention and we will be looking forward to seeing
you soon.
the renewals of memberships *
to help the incoming cab-
inet get started. Please
offer your help in solicit-
ing and renewing your
membership when asked to
do so.
The nomination of of-
ficers is in the offing--

By Bill hosokawa
With a little help from
the weatherman, the Mountain
Plains District convention
should be a grand success,
Korean War Hero Hershy Mt$a-
mura has promised to be on
hand and that means all the
men will show up to honor
him and all the girls will
come to see him.
Once upon a time Nisei
conventions used to be a
happy hunting ground for
wife and husband seekers*
Since the majority of the
Nisei have been around long
enough to be hookedif they
are ever going to get hooted
matrminoy is not fee primary
objective any more.
Rather, it would seem
that aside from the serious
business Nisei men get to-
gether to exchange gossip
about crops and jobs, size
each other up, and have a
good time. Likewise their
wives, except feat the rival-
ry is in regards to the num-
ber of children and gossip
comes first in importance.
All of which is fine.
Were all too busy and too
much in a rush these days to
relax and enjoy each others
company. Thats something
we can do at conventions*
Im in favor of more of them.
