DON'T EE A FREE RISER
JOIN THE JACL HOW
By Pres* Harry Sakata
This is the time of the
year when we used to see
many Nisei students making
the news in the Japanese pa-
pers as salutatorian, vale-
dictorian* scholarship re-
cipients* but not these days.
Not because there aren't any
more* but because the Nisei
have gone a long ways since
and accept the news more
calmly*
We remember the days when
it used to make the head-
lines if you were one of the
early Nisei to enter the
Armed Forces.
Just recently our JACL ca-
binet member* Seiji Horiuchi*
was elected the Colorado
State Vice-President of the
Jr. Chamber of Commerce* and
it didn't rate any news in
the Nisei world. According
to campaign manager* Bob Sa-
kata* Horiuchi was the only
candidate : at the state con-
vention at Grand Junction
who received a standing ova-
tion and could have won the
post of State president with
hands down. Not only did he
win two achievement awardsj
but under his leadership his
chapter won five of the ten
state awards*
More and more* Nisei are
being accepted as an inte-
gral part of the community*
We believe this is a healthy
sign. Take for instance the
city of Brighton. Henry Mo-
rimitsu is the past comman-
der of the VFW 17I4.9. Farm
Bureau secretary is Roy Maye-
da and new treasurer, of the
Lions Club. Its organiza-
tion boasts two o£her Nisei*
Sam Kato and Mike Tashiro.
The Optomist club has three
Nisei members* Q?. John Chiku-
ma, Seiji Horiuchi and Harry
Sakata* Frank Nakagawa* the
prewar prexy of Eden Town-
ship JACL, is the leader of
Boy Scouts* One of the hard-
est working leaders of Adams
County JjU is Sam Chikuma.
Sam Tashiro is the treasurer
of the Brighton Softbail
Assn** Bob Sakata is the
chairman of Adams County
Soil Conservation Board*
Tom Shibao and Tom Tochlhara
are JC members* There Is al-
so a Nisei in'the Sr* Cham-
ber of Commerce* Kay Saka-
guchi is the local vice-pres-
ident of the Farmers' Union.
The ladies are doing
their share* too. The secre-
tary of the Brighton Swimming
Pool Assn, is Mieko Mayeda.
Frances Hishinuma* Flo Naka-
ta* and Haruko Sasa hold
Rather late, but we ju3t
can't let a pretty picture go
to waste. The lovely couple
is Mr* and Mrs* Harold Stark
(Margdrite Shlbata) married
during mid-summer*
MEMORIAL DAY
BECOMES TRADITION
Irving Mafcsuda* vice-pres-
ident for program of the
Mile-Hi JACL, announced that
the Mile-Hi JACL* with the
cooperation of the Cathay
American Legion Post #185*
sponsored the annual Japa-
nese community's Memorial
Day services* on May 30, at
the Tri-State Buddhist Chmeh.
CHAIRMAN HIKIDA OFFICIATES
Thomas Hiklda was chair-
man for the affair* assisted
by Jack Ishida* coranander of
the Cathay Post* and Jim Oki-
ta* parade chairman* Rev. N.
Tsunoda of the TSBC deliv-
ered the principal address*
and Nancy Sogi* accompanied
by Grace Kawakami* rendered
solos. The Boy Scouts of
the TSBC acted as ushers.
The annual Memorial Day
services, sponsored by the
JACL in Denver* has become
a traditional affair.
offices in their respective
FTA. Katheryn Sakaguchi is
the president of the Hender-
son Homemakers* a non-Nisei
club. There are probably
others* but I think it's a
tremendous progress the Ni-
sei have made In Brighton as
well as other communities
through out the country.
It's hard to believe that
less than a decade ago this
very community* headed by
the Mayor* marched up to the
State Capitol and tried to
"kick the Japs out".
What makes it more signi-
ficant is the fact that all
these Nisei are loyal mem*
bera of the JACL.

AT LAST we received a
chain letter' which didn't
cost us anything* Usually
these chain-letter writers
.require you to enclose money,
pictures, boxtops, or a "doo-
dad" of somekind." Once we
stuffed,a handful of fishing
lures ($1*85 worth) in a box
and passed it on to the next
"lucky victim"*
The other day we received
a "lucky prayer" chain let-
ter* The prayer read like
this:
"Trust in the Lord with
all thine heart and
lean not unto thine un^
derstanding* In all thy
ways acknowledge Him
and He shall direct thy
paths*"
The best part of it was
the fact that the letter
said, "do not send money"*
It went on to mention that
General Olden received $1295
three days after he received
this prayer* General Patton
received $1,200 and lost it
because he broke the chain*
Other instructions were:
Send this and four other co-
pies to someone you wish to
have good luck* You are to
have good luck in four days*
This is not a joke, so do it
today*
Yes, four days later, we
received a letter (one of
those kind with a window-en-
velope) asking us why the
payment on the family car
wasn't taken care of on time*
At any rate, we are passing
this luclcy prayer on to some-
one more deserving*
"EENIE MEENIE" GAME
AS DONE BY NEGRO IADS
DID YOU EVER wonder how
the negro children recite
the game of "eeny-meeny-monny-
moe "?
*7e were discussing the Ja-
panese game of "jan-ken po"
and being unable to fully ex-
plain the meaning of the
count, we tried to let it go
by telling our youngster,
age 6, that it was something
like "eeny-meeny" and asked
him if he could recite the
popular poem by himself*
To our surprise, his ver-
sion went like this:
Eeny, meeny, monny, moe
Catch a tiger by the toe,
If he holler let him go,
Eeny, meeny, monny moe.
There's really no mystery
to it, if you knew that our
youngster goes to Columbine
School where 75 percent are
colored pupils*
TOO ^UIET IN ISLAND**
JOE BfADA, who paints
houses professionally, re-'
turned to Denver after a
three month's trip back to
the "Islands"* "Things are
too quiet there", said Joe,
but added that the 'wahines*
.."that's another story".

STRUCTURE OF POETRY EXPLAINED
By Dr, Howard Levy
(continued from last month)
Susano O-Mikoto, having
slain the dragon who had
killed eight children of an
elderly couple, was given
the only surviving daughter
of the relieved parents in
marriage* A poem he sup-
posedly wrote to celebrate
the occasion is cited in
both the Kojiki and the Ni*
hongi, each of which contain
more than a hundred poems*
The following poem is writ-
ten in the same Tanka form
which has characterized Ja-
panese poetry for the last
fourteen centuries* Here is
the poem by SusanU:
Countless as clouds of
the sky,
So countless the walls
of the house
In Izumo, rising above,
Palatial walls that I
build
For mv high-honored
spouse*"
The syllabic arrangement
of the Tanka ( ) is one
in which five-syllable first
and third lines alternate
with seven-syllable second
and fourth lines. The fifth
and last line also contains
seven syllables. Unlike Chi-
nese poetry, there is no
rhyming of finalsyllables,
and no tones with which to
contend. The following Ja-
panese original attributed
to Susano O-Mikoto gives
some idea of the sound and
syllable arrangement*

Although it is impossible
to accurately date the above
poem, the poems of the Sixth
to the Eighth Centuries A.D,,
found in the first great Ja-
panese poetic anthology known
as the Manyoshu ( ),
meaning the "book of ten
; thousand leaves", are of un-
\ questioned authenticity, The
icharacteristics of Japanese
> poetry, as embodied in the
KanyUshtT and later antholo-
gies, are conspicuously dif-
ferent from those of Euro-
pean verse. There are no
long Japanese poems, nothing
which resembles an epic, and
few narrative poems. Philo-
sophical, political and di-
dactic poems are virtually
absent. The Japanese poem
is noted for its brevity and
suggestiveness, being pri-
marily an expression of emo-
tion. The important place
is given to descriptions of
natural .beauty, the changing
seasons, the snow on Moun$
Fuji and other favorite sub-
jects, ' _________
