(ED'S NOTE: We regret that
we cannot bring you Bill'd
"The Critic's Corner" col-
umn this issue, because he
has been devoting his time
to help promote the "Japan
Festival".
Bill's special efforts
in connection with the pro-
motion of the Festival is
with the thought that the
bringing of Japanese cul-
tural aspects to Denver is
of particular benefit to
all persons of Japanese an-
cestry in this region.
In this concept, we do
heartily agree, and commend
Bill Hosokawa for his out-

well aware
of the con-
tinuing is-
sues still confronting all
persons of Japanese ances-
try in the U.S.

- GEORGE 1. INAGAKI -
Nat'l JACL President George J. Xnagaki
was selected "Nisei of the Biennium" for
1955 1956 at the 14th Biennial Convention
in San Francisco, and is well deserving of
the highest honor which Nisei-dom can be-
stow on a fellow Nisei.
President George not only conscientious-
ly and brilliantly fulfilled all of the ob-
ligations and duties of his national presi-
dency, but over and above his JACL activi-
ties, gave unstintingly to community causes
which added to the prestige and honor of
all Nisei everywhere.
The "Admiral", or "Callahan" as he is ***********
affectionately called by his friends, contributed his
5n?f?ies talents to the flower industry of Southern
California, the Chamber of Commerce, LA Welfare Council,

CHAPTER
ROBERT Y. SAKATA, of Brighton, Colorado,
1st Vice-President of the Mile-Hi JACL, and
officer of many civic and community organi-
zations in Brighton, was named one of the
four recipients of the Silver Medallion
Awards for public relations at the 14th Bi-
ennial Nat'l JACL Convention in San Fran-
cisco.
Bob was selected as one of the Four Out-
standing Farmers of 1955 by the Nat'l J.C.s
and this year has accepted the post of Natl
Agricultural Chairman for the National Ju-
nior Chamber of Commerce, and will travel
thru out all of the 48 states of the United
States as a Nat'l JC official.

JOHN SAKAYAMA
Nat'l Convention
The 14th Biennial Natl.
JACL Convention met in the
"Convention City," or San
Francisco, Aug. 31 through
Sept. 3rd, and the result
was an eventful and spec-
tacular gathering for all
of US JACLers.
San Franciscans, well-
known for their ability to
host conventions, certainly
did a tremendous job giving
us delegates four days of
marvellous fellowship and
serious discussions.
Delegates from 76 of the
88 chapters throughout the
United States, representing
the cream of the Nisei, met
to chart the course of JACL
for the next Biennium.
It was significant to
meet and to hear delibera-
tions on civil rights, in-
tegration and individual
freedom while newspapers
headlined racial segrega-
tion in the South.
In the midst of these
troubled times, especially
for racial minorities, we
realize the need for better
understanding of all citi-
zens and a bigger and bet-
ter JACL for more vigorous
public relations work.
Outstanding Nisei
Ve members of the Mile-
Hi Chapter can be proud
that once again, a fellow
JACLer among us received
National Recognition.
Robert Sakata of Bright-
on received a beautiful
silver medallion for out-
standing work in the field
of puolic relations during
the past Biennium.
Dr. Nishikawa will need
the continuing and increas-
ing support of all of us,
in order to make the JACL
truly an instrument to help
us become "Better Americans
in a Greater Americalll"
Let us pledge our sup-
port to Dr. Roy M. Nishi-
kava, our new National JACL
President, and go forward
to a better and bigger fu-
future for all of usi
During the past 3 Bi-
enniums, outstanding Nisei
of the Mtn-Plains region
have won 6 medals of the
total 15 awarded, or 40#
of the awards made, tho
constituting 5# of the JAs
in America.
In 1952, medals were a-
warded to Bill Hosokawa
and Pat Okuraj in 1954, to
Hershey Miyaarura, and Dr.
Minol Ota of Wyoming.
