JACL PROGRAM
By Leonard Uchida
The past twelve months
have been a very interest-
ing experience, as this is
my first experience in hold-
ing a. J.A.C.L. office. The
first few months were quite
hectic with all the things
that the Chapter is more or
less obligated to do. A
brief resume on Chapter
events during the year were
as follows: membership drive,
Red Cross Drive, movie bene-
fits, Chapter benefit, pub-
lic relations, picnic, NICC
dance, Convention, ereneral
meeting and special recogni-
tion, Few Year's Bve banquet
and dance. My personal
thanks goes to all of my
Cabinet members, and to all
of the kind people who have
helped me make my term a
complete success.
The friends that I have
made during my term will be
long remembered by us (Doro-
thy^and me). One of the
most interesting things to
me was the unity that we of
J. A. C. L. have --whenever
things had to be done I
could always call on these
wonderful people and they
would drop whatever they
\^ere doing to give us a
helping hand, I wish all of
you could have been at the
Convention to see your na-
tional officers do their
stuff. Their belief in
J.A.C.L, is one to be ad-
mired, We have an organiza-
tion that is unique, that
really goes to bat for its
members. We have men at the
top who are topnotch. These
men who undoubtedly could be
more successful in business
are willing to sacrifice
their career to serve in
something that they believe
is more important, (serving
J.A.C.L,). Our organization
,is one that is respected by
all groups and our motto
"Better Americans for a
Greater America" has been
our key word.

MosrUwwxorwr Editor RecausTrip
By Qski Taniwaki
If at some time or other you feel disgusted at Colorado,
you should take a little ride into Nebraska, It makes no
difference in what direction you gojust so you go to Ne-
braska .
Historians will tell you that a million years ago, the
plains which originates from eastern Colorado and eastward
for several hundreds of miles was partially covered with
water and with giant tyransauraus and diplodocuses waddling
in the marshes along the region which is now North Platte.
With just such a train of thoughts, we, JACL delegates
from Denver to the Omaha's convention drove and dozed and
drove. The outline of the majestic Rockies gradually dis-
appeared behind dust and corn-shred laden atmosphere. Foi
the next U00 miles it made no difference when you woke up.
from your dozing, you haven't missed a thing of interest.
As far as the eyes can see the picture was the same-
corn, maize, corn, silos, corn, farmhouses, corn, and ad-
infinitum, ripe corns, some harvested, some in the process
of harvesting, corns stacked in heaps,corn stored in silos.
Now and then we would look westward but the outline of
the mountains were no more. We missed it like a long lost
brother, but we kept looking back, thinking that it might
accidentally be there.
Now and then a huge mass of tumble weeds would dash out
into the highway as if to remind us that Jesse James is
waiting for us around the bend at the next silo.
After fifteen hours of this sort of day dreaming, we
suddenly come upon a bluff, a beautiful mass of buildings--
an inspiring campanile--all this a monument to a man who
had dedicated his life to the philosophy There is no such
thing as a bad boy".
OMAHA IS HILLY AND SPR5ADIN&
This Boys Town, now under Rt. Rev. Monsignor Nicholas
Wegner, who was one of the main speakers at the convention
banquet, is now considered as an outskirt of Omaha altho it
is about ten miles apart. Omaha shows signs of growing
westward.
It was already getting dark when we arrived in Omaha,
the "Big City" of Nebraska, cattle center, and home office
of many larger insurance companies. We fell in love with
Omaha at first sight. We especially liked the clever use
of its natural hilly terrain, working the buildints into
the contour of the Bluffs. It reminded us of San Francisco
on a much small scale. The city spread all over the hill-
side boasting a population about half of Denver. Most of
the eye catching new structures being built belong to in-
surance companies, a material proof that insurance is the
biggest business in the nation today.
Hotel Sheraton-Fontenelle, our convention headquarter,
lcated on top of a hill, is the sister-chain of San Fran -
cisco's Palace Hotel. Being off season for hotel business,
the JACL had pretty much the entire run of the biggest ho-
tel in Omaha.
'THIS 19 YOUR lift': MASAOKA 1
It wasn't hard to figure out that a great deal of time.
and effort had gone into the planning of the convention of
this size. Every detail of the program was worked out ef-
ficiently and the convention opened with a jolly mixer de-
signed to know each other within the first 30 minutes. How-
ever, this lasted into the wee hours of the morning...and
everybody was more than well acquainted.
Saturday morning's business session began at 9 a. m. but
was poorly attended and everybody blamed it on the "too
much" mixing the night before.
The trip to Boys Town in the afternoon hearing the in-
spiring talks of Father Wegner, and tasting the highly
famous corn-fed steak was worth the 1,200 mile trek.
Mike Masaoka's "This is Your Life"rerun with Mas Satow's
explanation of the preparation and secrecy from Mike add-
ed greatly to showing of the film which should be seen by
every JACLer. It was estimated at more than k million peo-
ple have seen this feature by Ralph Edwards.
Colorado delegates won most of the prizes of the exeite-
ing raffle run, A camera was won by Frances Wakasugi of
Blanca, Colo., Bulova watch by a Fort Lupton delegate, com-
pact by Mrs.John Masunaga, and recording of Boys Town choir
by Oski Taniwaki both of Denver. The grand prize, a 21 inch
colorTV remained in Omaha as Sam Tsuji had the winning stub
Among the virtues of the JACL, has been the practice
never to let a good deed go without proper recognition.With
4ACL-6l!AMfcR Ikt
The National JACL thru
their Washington Q. C rep-
resentative sent a telegram
to Pres. Eisenhower for his
speedy recovery on Nov. 2^'
The telegram was signed by
Mike Masaoka, Dr. Roy Nishi-
kawa, and Mas Satow which
read:
"Together with our fellow
Americans we of Jsnanese an-
cestry join in prayers for
your speedy and complete re-
covery, In these perilous
times, our nation need your
inspired leadership,"
MfcMBf I&HIP
With a total JACL member-
ship of 1,116 for 1957,
Southwest Los Angeles Chap-
ter again has become the
"ichiban number one" organi-
sation, Much of the foot-
work was credited to George
Fujita.
DENVER DELEGATES
ASSIGNED 7 POSTS
Seven Coloradans have
been named to positions with
the Mountain Plains District
Council of the Japanese
American Citizens League as
results of bi-annual con-
ference held at Omaha on
November 30, 1957.
Installed were:
Tak Terasaki, Denver,
chairman; Dr.George Uyemura,
Ft. Lupton, central vice
chairman; Ugi Harada, Rocky
Ford, southern vice chair-
man; Mrs.Sum! Takeno, Denver
corresponding secretary;Mrs
Betty Suzuki,Denver, record-
ing secretary; Bill Kuroki,
Denver, treasurer, and John
Masunaga, Denver, 1,000 Club
chairman.
Also, elected were Frank
Taroai, Omaha, northern vice
chairman,and Barbara Lawson,
Omaha, historian.
that in mind, James L. Paxton, Jr., and Father Wegner, who
befriended the JACL during the trying years when being asso-
ciated with the Japanese was considered bad taste, were
warmly honored and presented appreciation scrolls.
Additional scrolls were given out to YWCA officials in
behalf of the Omaha Chapter.
Like the Indians who confer"Chief"title to their honored
friend, the state of Nebraska bestowed upon Mas Satow, na-
tional JACL director, their commission as Admiral of the
"Nebraska Navy",
Touching only on the highlights of the convention, it
is of special interest to note that the JACL chapters in
every locality has grown up. Most members are in their
middle age bracket. It was recalled and pointed out to the
fact that replacements roust be found. The formation of a
Junior Division (age: 18 to 25) must be pushed. Many chap-
ters already have programs to fit the younger Interests.
This idea will be among the coming project in the Denver
area.
"Pacific Citizen" with every membership idea will be
brought to the front at a more accelerated pace with the
finding that only meager information about the JACL is be-
ing subjected to the members in general.
HARDSHIPS 0F iSSfcl WORTH RETEUINGr
The little known part played by the Japanese parents and
their contribution to the American culture must not be for-
gotten. The history of the Issei and their struggle to gain
a foothold in the new country of their choice should be
collected from every source and their history should be
compiled in book form. The National JACL is thinking of
this project in "earnest seriousness", stated Mas Satow.
James Michener will probably be contacted to do the writing
As the convention came to a close with a farewell dance
at the Sheraton, there was one lingering thought: "Omaha,
you did a grand job." Congratulations to Dr. and Mrs. Pat
Okura, Mr. and Mrs. Bob Nakadoi, Mr. and Mrs. Manuel Matsu-
nami, the Takechi's, the Ikebasu's, Hirabayashi's, Tamai's,
Tsuji's, Yoden's, and hosts of others.

cords. Terno Cdow assisted In the notices to membership.

Special guests included the contingent from Ft. Lupton,
headed by Pres. Frank Yamaguchi, and included more than a
dozen from the Ft. Lupton area. The War Brides* Columbine
Club, headed by Takako Wiley, Pres., and Gloria Nakamura,
Vice-President, also attended as special guests. John T.
Clingan, officer-in-charge of the Denver office of the I&NS;
was also a special guest. !
George L. Creamer opposing the proposed City and County
of Denver income tax debated with James Fresques, former
city councilman and now budget director, as to the advisi-
* bility of adopting the proposed tax measure at the special
election on Dec. 17.

James Okazaki, promising
and latest Nisei attorney to
pick Denver for his legal
career, has been featured in
the Daily Journal, of Nov. 6
a legal publication of this
city.
The Nisei attorney who is
now associated with Title
Guaranty Co., explains his
reasoning for the choice of
Denver.
"As a result of my having
been associated with Pren-
tice-Hall, X came to realize
DECEMBER, COLORADO
MI-HI JACL BULLETIN
Brighton
that a city such as Denver
offers limitless opportuni-
ties to persons in the real
estate field, in view*of its
population growth and econo-
mic expansion. I honestly
believe that I got a better
perspective on Denver in New
York than I could have ob-
tained had I actually been
in Denver."
Consequently Okazaki
took the examination for ad-
mission to the Colorado Bar
and was admitted to law
practice in February, 1956.
A native of Alliance,
Nebr. having been bora
there on January 23, 1927,
Okazaki attended public
schools in Ft. Lupton, Colo,
and was graduated from high
school in that city in 19i*5.
Released from service in
the latter part of 191*6, he
enrolled a.t the University
of Colorado and following
graduation entered the
University of Denver College
of Law where he earned his
LL.B degree in 1951*.
Okazaki's wife, the form-
er Yasuko Furukawa, is a
dietician. A native of San
Pedro, Calif., she studied
both at Colorado University
and Columbia University. The
Okazakis have a son, Cary
Allen.

Do you like "omochi?
If so, here is a novel
plan in which you can rent
a "roochi machine at a very
reasonable price.
Ass*t Cubmaster, Joe Miya-
moto, of Pack 38, CSMC, has
a machine which will be rent-
ed out at about #2.50 a day
enabling you to make about
100 pounds of mocto in 4
hours time. The rental fee
is to be donated to the Cubs
However, reservation must
be made well in advance as
the machine is renting out
like mad, says Joe.

Dr. Henry Look, who Las
his dental office at 830
18th St., was a victim of a
prowler who entered his of-
fice recently, taking over
$100 in cash.
Construction of a new
building by the San Francis-
co JACL to house the Nation-
al JACL Headquarters and to
serve'the needs of the grow-
ing local chanter is now un-
der study by the Board.
At the ore sent time, the
JACL office is located at
1759 Sutter St., a converted
frame, residence structure.
The orestiee that comes with
an impressive office, has
been lacking and it has been
considered as a skeleton in
the closet affair.
# Dr. Fideki Hayashi, pro-
minent Bay Section dentist,
died on Nov. 8 after a brief

The former Sacramentoan

Post Street office before
