district council meeting in Chicago.
While in Denver, he met with the Mile-Hi
JACL cabinet, and other JACLers, Monday night
at the home of .John Sakayama, president.
Satow indicated that problems of deporta-
tion of native-born Nisei, the forthcoming
ballotting in California to-eliminate anti-
alien land laws from the statute books, de-
segregation in schools involving Sansei chil-
dren, legislative matters, and many other im-
portant issues still confront persons of Jap-
anese ancestry, and that the National JACL
must find proper solutions for these crucial
problems.

MEMORIAL DAY 1956. .
The Korean sun was
brutally hot the day they
brought the bodies in.
There had been a battle.
And casualties
The stiff forms, frozen
in postures of agony, their
wounds mercifully concealed
by olive drab blankets,
rode back to the command
post on litter jeeps and
were laid out gently in a
row so the chaplain could
identify and tag them.
A few G.I.s, off-duty,
watched quietly, awed in
the presence of death, and
I watched with them*
Shrapnel and lead, sun
and mud, had done obscene
things to the young bodies
of the dead.
But what pressed on me
with immense depression was
not the broken flesh, but
the shattered dreams repre-
sented by those corpses.
Each of these men had
dreams, and hopes and ambi-
tions. They had loved, and
had been loved.
And now, all that had
been sacrificed on a dis-
tant battlefield in the de-
fense of their America.
This Memorial Day, I re-

sands like them who gave
their lives in Korea, in

With so many activities
of picnics and fishing, we
suddenly realize that half
of 1956 has slipped by.
But, we have had many
successful, chapter events
and community projects.
To mention a few: The
March of Dimes, Red Cross
drive, Family Pun Kite, and
the "Samurai" benefit.
Your cooperation as mem-
bers made these activities
successful.
The membership drive un-
der the co-chairmanship of
Mieko Mayeda and Sam Katsu-
moto has been very good. As
we go to press, we have in
the neighborhood of 500
members signed up.
But, in-looking thru the
roster, we find that wany
of you have not been con-
tacted. We ask you to turn
your memberships in to the
office, or call one of the
membership solicitors.
We have as our goal, the
largest Mile-Hi JACL chap-
ter in history, and again
we ask your cooperation.
Recently, weve been re-
quested by the Commission
on Human Relations of Den-
ver to participate in the
Coordinating Council, The
primary purpose is to im-
prove inter-group relations
in our social and business
lives here in Denver,
