Suphime s^Rinct DENVER TO BOOJT
ist, was a very disappointed
roan seeing only a handful of
Nisei turnouts at the annual
traditional Nisei Soldiers
Memorial Services held at
Arlington Cemetery October
27.
Col. Rasmussen, who has
trained more than 7*000 Ni-
sei at the Intelligence Lan-
guage Schools during World
War II, was the main speaker.
Re recalled Abe Lincoln's
famous Gettysburg Address:
"From these honored dead we
take increased devotion to
that cause for which they
gave the last full measure
of devotion."
Masaoka regretted very
much that the Nisei should
forget so soon the fact that
so many Nisei have given
their last full measure of
devotion so that equality,
acceptances and full citizen
shi^i can be a reality.
EVACUATION DID
GOOD SAY? MY£R
Dillon Myer, wartime dir-
ector of the VfRA now visit-
ing Japan told reporters
there he believed the mass
evacuation of Japanese Amer-
icans from the west coast
had been unnecessary and
that most of the scare sto-
ries were just plain bunk.
But he said he believed
the relocation had helped
integrate the Nisei beyond
their communities and ulti-
mately helped kill of dis-
criminatory local legisla-
tion .
Myer said "now, racial
origin does not dog,them ,
and they are accepted every-
where. In fact, the term
Nisei is giving them some
extra break because of their
widely publicized and valu-
able work during the war."

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
TAKES IN VARIED EVENTS
The most outstanding event of the JACL calendar for this
year will take place December 6 when the Mile High Chapter
presents their distinguished service scrolls to Dr. Robert
L. Stearns, former president of Colorado University and now
chairman of the Boettcher Foundation, and to James G. Pat-
ton, president of the National Farmers Union.
The JACL is honoring both Dr. Stearns and Mr. Patton who
- served as national sponsors of the JACL movement during the
critical war years when espousing or befriending the cause
of Nisei Americans, was not a popular cause.
This presentation will take place at the Buddhist church
in conjunction with the Annual General Meeting at which
time the guests will be served pot-luck supper. /
Masao W. Satow, national director of the JACL, will be
especially attending THE MILE-HI JACL CEREMONIES ON DEC. 6,
in order to make these presentations.
Dr. Talcashi Mayeda who was chairman of the first post-
war National JACL Convention in Denver in 19^6 will act as
master of ceremonies for the presentation.
ISSEI CITI2ENS
As a special feature, the Mile-Hi JACL will also honor
the newly-naturalized Issei who have become citizens during
1957* In keeping with past tradition, gold-filled lapel
pins fashioned in the shape of the American flag will be
presented to the Issei by secretaries Martha Uyehara and
Rosalie Tokunaga.
Rev. George Uyemura who has volunteered and served as
interpreter at many of the naturalization examinations in
the U. S. District Court will serve as chairman.
Special guests for the Issei recognitions program will
be John T. Clingan, officer-in-charge of the Denver Immi-
gration and Naturalization office, and Syril I. Shaiberg,
chief naturalization examiner for the Denver I&NS office.
POT-LUCK SUPPER
Pres. Uchida announced that arrangements are being made
to bold an informal pot-luck supper, commencing at 5*30
p. m., in order to make the annual meeting of the Mile-Hi
JACL a family affair.
CHILDREN'S PARTY
In order that the presentations ceremonies and meeting
can be held upstairs, the Mile-Hi JACL is arranging a chil-
dren's party in the downstairs room, witt\ movies and car-
toons .
BUSINESS MEETING
Following the presentation ceremonies, Pres. Uchida will
convene the general business meeting. Sarge Terasaki as
chairman of the Nominations Committee will report on 1958
JACL candidates.
Convention reports of the Omaha convention held Nov. 29-
30 will be made by delegates Betty Suzuki, John Masunaga
and Bill Kuroki.
Robert M. Horiuchi will report on the. MILF-HI JACL-
HARRY H. SAKATA 1958 Scholarship Award to be made at the
Recognitions Dinner to be held Dec. 31 at the Albany Hotel.
INCOME TAX DEBATE
With the proposed income tax election for Denver coming
up on Dec. 1?, speakers for and against the proposal will
be presented at the meeting. Inasmuch as the proposed Den-
ver income tax will affect nonresidents of Denver Pren
Uchida hoped that members in outlying areas will be parti-1
cularly interested in attending, to learn how the tax will
affect them.

Helen York who is here
today and gone L.A. the next
day, working up publicities
for all types of movie has
been in touch with the JACL
from time to time.
Just recently, she in-
vited several of the JACL
members to watch the pre-
view of RKO's "Escapade in
Japan." Unfortunately none
of us could make it for it
was under short notice.
However, we understand
that the film was shot en-
tirely in Japan near Tokyo
with story around two boys,
Jon Provost, and Kei Naka-
mura (Japanese teenager), in
which the film shows autumn
scenes and highways and by-
ways and byways of Japan as
these American and Japanese
boys meander around the west
part of Japan in their at-
tempt to reach Tokyo.
The story of friendship
between these two children
is movingly human and heart-
warming worth of full back-
ing by all persons having
goodwill at heart.
Nisei critics who have
seen the film urge all Boy
Scout, Girl Scout, church,
and service organisations
interested in child welfare
to take this opportunity to
see the picture en masse.
Of added interest here is
that Helen York was the lady
who contacted the JACL to
find her a .suitable girl to
publicize "Joe Butterfly",
which played at Paramount
recently. It may: be recalled
that we found Irene Furuta
for the role. Miss York was
very satisfied, and promised
us that she would visit
Irenes folks on her next
visit to Los Angeles.

ROSALIE Y. TOKUNAGA
If all the correspon-
dences of the JACL for the
year were layed end to end
it would at least stretch
from Downing to Broadway.
Talk about writers crarop--
Rosalie Tokunaga, our offi-
cer in that capacity would
surely have it.
Rosalie's native city is
Cheyenne, Wyo., born Octo-
ber 20 to Ray and Ume Mikawa
one of ten children. Moved
to Ault where she finished
her high school in 1941, Her
folks are now prosperous
farmers at Kersey (near
Greeley, Colo.) Rosalie must
have been a very attractive
co-ed at Cole. State College
before she moved to Denver
in 1952.
Our attractive secretary
is with the Air Reserve Re-
cord Center where she is one
of the top ranking employees.
Sorry folks,
this is the only
picture available
but enough there
to give you an
idea.
Bowling and bridge occu-
pies much of her spare time
if there are any spare time
with a round

SAYS REV GOTO
Expressing confidence and
great things to be done in
the next 50 years of Chris-
tian activities among the
Denver Japanese community,
Bishop Glen Phillips of the
Methodist churches, struck
the keynote in the Golden
Anniversary Banquet honoring
the pioneer Christians of
Colorado.
The Nisei-sponsored ban-
quet was opened by toast-
master Joe Ariki at the Lo-
tus Room on November 8, who
introduced the honored
guests and speakers. More
than 250 persons, mostly
Nisei, jammed the banquet
hall.
'We can no longer
serve only the small Japan-
ese communities, we must
spread out to become active
in a much wider sphere of
influence", said Rev. Taro
Goto, in spiking the smug
outlook of most Japanese to-
day.
Six pioneers who were
Christians for more than 50
years and nine persons who
lived in Colorado for the
past 50 years were among the
honored guests.

Dec. 6.
Prospective officers
named from the floor will be

of the Rocky Mountain Hair
Dressers Association, which
convened last week at the
Shirley-Savoy Hotel, with
more than 1500 delegates
from all parts of the United
States as well as Canada and
Hawaii.
UTTLE KNOWN MlfEt
-FACT* CLEANED-FROM
121 TOKYO MEET
Much publicity has been
given the First Internation-
al Nisei convention held in
Tokyo. From it comes to
light some very little known
facts about the Nisei. For
instance:
That the first true Nisei
were children of four ship-
wrecked Japanese fishermen
put ashore in Honolulu by an
American whaler 116 years
ago.
That the first Japanese
to be naturalized a U.S.cit-
izen was Kikozo Haroada (Jo-
seph Heco) who served under
Townsend Harris in Japan and
was received by Abraham Lin-
coln,
That there are about
87.000 Nisei in U. S. and in
Hawaii about 150,000. There
is no record of Nisei in
Brazil, but it would be a
good guess that more than
50.000 Nisei have taken root
there. They call themselves
Japanese-Brazilians- and
speak Portugese.
ACLU HONOR*
TAJIK I ON BOARD
Larry Tajiri, Nisei news-
paperman of Denver, was one
of the 18 nominees for the
Executive Board of the Colo-
rado branch of the American
Civil Liberties Union.
Tajiri -was characterized
as an ACLU member since 1956
and a newspaper man for 23
years, including editor of
the JACL official organ in
Salt Lake City, Utah, for 10
years. At present, Larry
Tajiri is on the staff of
The Denver Post as drama
editor.
In years past, several
Nisei have been members of
the Colorado ACLU, including
Dr. T.K.Kobayashi, Tak Tera-
saki, Min Yasui, and others.
