THE MILE-HI JACL BULLETIN
APRIL 1954
The national -Japanese
African Citizens league is
a quarter-century old and
its accomplishments in that
period have, improved mater-
ially the welfare of the Ni-
sei and Issei population.
In fact, the JACL*s record
of accomplishment is one un-
matched hy another minority
group organization*
In March of 1946 the
first post-war national con-
vention of the JACL was
called in Denver. That
meeting at the Cosmopolitan
Hotel set the pattern for
the JACL*s activity since
that-time. Delegates from
all parts of the United
States drew up a three-
point program of objectives*
The Anti-Discrimination Com-
mittee, designated as the
legislative arm of the JACL,
was set up* The delegates
bravely passed the largest
budget in the organization^
history, well over #100,OCO.
The three objectives of
the Denver convention have,
since been attained. The
right of naturalization was
von by the Issei and all
other resident aliens,hith-
erto ineligible, through
the Valter-McCarran act of
1952 which recognized, for
the first time in our na-
tions history, the right
to citizenship of all resi-
dents, regardless of race
or color. The evacuation
claims bill, indemnifying
the Japanese American eva-
cuees for .accountable busi-
ness and property losses
directly caused by the mass
evacuation of 1942, was
passed by the 1948 Congress
and the evacuees will re-
ceive_ approximately one-
hundred-thousand dollars as
a direct consequence of the
JACL*s action. Legislation
was approved by Congress
granting the Attorney Gene-
ral the right to stay deport
tations of "aliens ineligi-
ble to citizenship" and hun-
dreds of Issei were saved
from arbitrary expulsion.
Members of the JACL and
their friends in Denver and
in the region covered by
the Mountain Plains JACL
district council played an
important role toward the
realization of the JACL*s
objectives through finan-
cial support of the Nation-
al JACL and its Anti-Dis-
crimination Committee*
Denver chapter members
can be proud of their inte-
gral roles' in the JACL's
singular achievements, on be-
half of the country*s popu-

The latest figures for
1954 membership drive of
the Mile-Hi Chapter show
that we are considerably
behind those of previous
years*
The membership committee
is strivirg to have a larger
chapter than that of years
past* We are certain this
goal oan be achieved if all
members who have not signed
for 1954 will do so as soon
as they can. With your sirp-
port the Mile-Hi Chapter
caa be the largest and best
of all times*
Members of the committee
are working over time in an
effort to contact everyone.
We appeal to those who have
not been reached to call
the JACL office and renew
their memberships.
SUTATOR JOHNSON
For several days we have
heard and read the decision
of Senator Ed C. Johnson to
retire from the U*S* Senate.
Through many trying years,
our Senator from Colorado
has been a bulwark of
strength in aiding the Jap-
anese Americans here with
ways given his assistance
generously when called upon*
His untiring efforts as-
sisted in the McCarran Act
for citizenship for our Is-
sei parents* The Senator
has also sponsored several
private bills, saving some
Japanese in Colorado from
deportation* It is known
he has actively supported
the National JACL legisla-
tive program*
With the retirement of
Senator Johnson, the Japa-
nese communities of Colora-
do will lose a staunch sup-
porter of our many problems*
We of the Mile-Hi Chap-
ter welcome our Senator
home* We know that in Sena-
tor Johnson, the people of
Japanese ancestry hav e
found a great and loyal
friend* ________.
