WE PLACE OUR FAITH/
HARRY HARUKI SAKATA
1955 President, Mile-Hi JACL
(Denver, Colo-)
Harry H. Sakata, the 1955
president of the Mile-Hi JA-
CL, is an energetic Nisei
farmer in Brighton, Colorado,
specializing in lettuce gr-
owing which he learned in
California, Gladiola flowers
makes a colorful showplace
of his farm when in full
bloom.
He operates a 240 acres
farm in partnership with his
brother, Robert Y. Sakata,
who is community leader in
his own right in the Brigh-
ton area.
Sakata is 34 years old
and was born in Centerville,
California. He is married
to Mary Takeko, nee Yamamoto,
formerly of Scottsbluff, Neb,
They have two sons, Howard
Haruo and Stanley Yoshiaki.
Besides his brother, Bob, he
has two married sisters in
Los Angeles, California, Mrs,
Shig Nishikawa and Mrs. Tok
Sato.
Sakata graduated from
Washington Union High School
in Alameda County in Calif,
and during pre-war days was
an active JACL supporter.
Since 1946, when Natl JACL
Convention was held in .Den-
ver, probably Harry Sakata
was the most enthusiastic
one-man booster for Mike M.
Masaoka and the JACL program
in Washington, D. C.
Determined to do an ef-
fective job of community
leadership, Sakata has cons-
cientiously applied himself,
and is a graduate of the
Dale Carnegie course in self
improvement. He graduated
as the top man in his public
speaking class.
At present, Harry Sakata
and family are vacationing
in Japan on a two months
tour. Elected in absentee,
Sakata has written from Jap-
an stating his willingness
to carry on the JACL program
in Colorado upon his return
in March.
Besides photography as a
hobby, Sakata is active in
community affairs. He is a
member of the Optimist Club
in Brighton, and is the past
president of the Japanese
American Association of Bri-
ghton. He has served as tre-
asurer of the Mountain-Plain
JACL District Council, and
is a deacon of the First Pr-
esbyterian Church of Brigh-
ton. In the local JACL chap-
ter, he' served as first vice-
president for membership,and
in 1953 boosted the local
membership over the 500 mark.
In all things, Sakata has
been a careful and conscien-
tious person and actively
concerned in promoting the
welfare of persons of Japan-
ese ancestry in the communi-
ty in which he lives. With
Harry H. Sakata as president
of the Mile-Hi JACL, the lo-
cal JACL activities are ex-
pected to be bigger and bet-
ter than ever before!

Year of sheep,
YEW *F PEA0&
In case you dont already
know, dear Nisei, this is
the year of the sheep!
Our parents firmly be-
lieve that the year of the
sheep, under the 12 signs of
the zodiac, will be a quiet
and prosperous one. After
all, whats Formosa? Japan
doesnt own that lousy is-
land anymore anyway.
Compared to the tranquil
year of the sheep, 195^ was
the year of the horse which
brought a series of disas-
ters to Japan. .Among them
was the sinking of the ferry
Toya I.laru which cost over
1,000 lives and was classed
as Japans greatest peace-
time disaster.
160,000 hopeful Japanese
subjects braved the bitter
cold of Tokyo to pay homage
to the Bmperor at his palace
during the new year, without
an incident. It may be re-
called that more than 50 per-
sons were either injured or
killed in the wild celebra-
tion last year.
Editors note: 160,000
is a lot of people consider-
ing the fact that it is more
than the entire number of
Jaoanese now living in the
U.3.
The BULLETIN will carry
biographies of other members
of the 1955 cabinet.
"like other minority groups,
the Japanese in Denver must
prepare to face juvenile de-
linquency problems ", said
Miss Chiye Horiuchi, speak-
ing before a packed audience
as one of the four featured
speakers at a panel discus-
sion held at the TI on Feb# 2*
Other speakers on the pan-
el were Irving Andrews for
the NAACP, Lino Lopez for
the Mayors Comm# on Human
Relations and Michael Freed
of Bnai Brith. Miss Horiu-
chi represented the JACL.
The program was sponsored
by the Womens International
League for Peace and Freedom
which is observing its ij.0th
anniversary Feb. 20-27#
"The Japanese people have
set a good pace in community
acceptance by fitting then-
selves in jobs which are
best fitted for them* Many
parents are taking active
part in PTA, they get along
nicely with their neighbors,
and the Japanese are classed
as preferreds by banks and
loan firms as compared to
other groups which are con-
sidered bad risks", Miss Hor-
iuchi elaborated.
"However, there is defin-
itely an increase in the num-
ber of juvenile delinquents
among the Denver Japanese,
and very little is actually
being done about it. Econo-
mic and housing conditions
have big influence on the
growing child which may be
solved when most of the Jap-
anese move into better neigh-
borhoods", the speaker com-
mented.
JACL FAMILY MITE
DRAW cTRDWfc

In spite of the heaviest
snonfbll in three years, more
than 200 Nisei and hakujin
took part in the JACL family
night fun festival held at
the DX Club Feb. 19.
Ken and Fumi Yabo, as-
sisted by daxighter Elleno,
carried home the grand door
prize of a set of dishes, be-
sides winning two rounds cf
"B--" (you know what).
The first of series of
fund raising affairs was ar-
ranged by Bill (Katoka) Mat-
tocks, finance chairman of
the JACL, who promised more

future. He was ably assisted
by John and Ruby Sakayama,
Dick Yanase, and their hard
working, committee.

DRIVE SoliCiTOR.
MA!> AS WET HE*
"Sometimes your faith in
the Nisei reaches rock bot-
tom" lamented a forlorn la-
dy membership solicitor dur-
ing the early week of the
1955 drive*
"After spending more than
30 minutes of my time trying
to convince them on the mer-
its of becoming a JACL mem-
ber* they come back at you
with...WHAT DO I GET IF I
JOIN?" the solicitor said
as mad as a wet hen.
Other reasons given for
not joining run something
like thist
"I'm not interested in
bridge games...or, I'm not
bowling this year*..but the
best one yet so far is: I
don't hang around with Jape-
too much".
(Editors note) Have you
heard any good ones lately?

Award for the outstanding

the basis of achievement,

community, and upon his per-
sonal character and ability.
Horiuchi is the president
of the local Junior Chamber
of Commerce and is a gradu-
ate of Colorado A & 1,1. He
