than 900 bowlers expected to
toe the lines.
A welcoming committee is
being formed to greet some
300 bowlers who will be fly-
ing from Hawaii. Plans are
also being made for a pre-
tourney mixer at Man Jen Low
in New Chinatown, and a huge
awards dinner and dance at

largest tournament ever held
Since the National Tour-

HOLIDAY ISSUE
DEADLINE
HURRY U
The Pacific Citizen is
honoring the Mountain-Plains
in the 1958 Holiday Issue.
Basically, we would like to
know what the Japanese Amer-
ican in our community would
like to have said about him
and the community. The pic-
tures will enhance the story
of course.
In this connection, the
ads and one-line name greet-
ings ($2) solicited for this
Holiday Issue will be incor-
porated into this section.
So lets go all out for
this,
V/ hat the Holiday Issue
would more or less like to
have is the story of old-
time Denverites, how they
first settled, etc.
A committee will be soli-
citing Holiday Issue ads and
name insertions. Each fami-
ly can write of their pa-
rents adventure here if they
wish. The Holiday Issue of
the P. C. will act as a
directory and your name will
enable friends to find your
new address. This is mater-
ially a human interest fea-
ture.
Send your stories to
John Masunaga, JACL Presi-
dent, 3380 Forest St, Den-
ver, Colorado.
***N0W is the TIME FOR all
good chapters to come to the
aid of the Pacific Citizen.
***Your PC needs all the
help you csn give in getting
ads for the Holiday Edition.
***Along with the larger ads
we want to emphasize the $2
one-line greeting from the
members as well as others.
***A financially successful
Holiday Edition will get the
PC out of the red and we're
counting on chapter assist-
ance heavily.
***Time is of the essence so
we are asking your special
attention to this matter im-
mediately.

MUe- H\ JkCl Bulletin
Dear Hanako:
What's the latest in Pey-
ton Place? Natch, haven't
read much in the paper these
pas (boring) months so I
take everything is okay.
It won't be long before
the gang will tally-ho to
the mountains to start
breaking what bones they
haven't broken. Gads, some
of the Cathay Post Ski Club
members have already started
going to Loveland Pass and
Arapahoe Basin* I mean,the
ones coming back without
breaking anything are: Sara
Sato, George Haaa, Eddie Ko-
muro, Sam and Robert Inai.
Guess I'll be in the fad and
break a few bon$s here and
there.
You know man, I'm really
down in the dumps because
this chick I know is getting
hitched in February.........
I mean man, this leaves me
out in the cold. Nah, come
to think of it. think I'll
be a bachelor.
What do you think of BB?
. She must be wow! the
way the papers write. But
me, I like the simple home
type with all the curves at
the right places.
Sorry, the letter isn't
very long and not much gos-
sip but I mean you know how
it is.......................
Sincerely,
Yakaraashi
