AJA News winds up another pub-
lishing season...
The benefit bazaars that have
become such a large part Of Den-
ver Japanese American Community
activity must be a mutual back-
scratching proposition to suc-
ceed: You scratch ay back, I
scratch yours. The coMunity is
too small to be able to afford
feuds. One of these days we'll
have to grow up, put pettiness a-
side, and learn to cooperate.
The comunity is riding on
the crest of interest in things
Japanese. Japanese food, culture,
art, gardens are the fad. What
happens when the fad, as all fads
must, comes to an end?
One of the more notable ob-
servations in reading the dally
press is the number of Japanese
"names" making news in community,
professional, club, school, and
church activities. A surprising
number of these names are not
well known in the Japanese Ameri-
can community. It would take
much more space than is available
here to analyze this bit of in-
telligence.
I wonder how much in local
capital is being drained away by
the various Japanese visitors es-
pousing some special cause or an-
other. In James Michener's novel
"Hawaii," Kamejiro Sakagawa is a
Japanese immigrant who tries des-
perately to save a few hundred
dollars. But each time he nears
his goal somebody comes along to
plead for a contribution for some
worthy cause in Japan, and he is
moved to give. Of course the si-
tuation here isn't nearly so bad,
but it'8 bad enough.
The Issei, even more than the
Hlsei, fail to understand the dy-
namic changes in present-day Ja-
pan, which is understandable. It
would open their eyes if they
would visit the Sum! Painting and
Contemporary Prints exhibit at
the Denver Art Museum and see how
far Japanese artists have de-
parted from the traditional form.
AJAS MAINTAIN HIGH ACADEMIC RECORDS
Unfortunately, as of time of writing, we do not have the complete
listings and qualifications of AJA high school seniors in the Denver
metropolitan area who have applied
year total $700.00, with the top
award of $250.00 for the HARRY H.
SAKATA Memorial Award.
We do know, however, that as
in past years, the scholastic re-
cords and achievements of AJA se-
niors are impressive. Only very
briefly, we note the following:
JANICE ABO. Salutatorian at North
High School, with an outstand-
ing record of activities;
JEFF AOKI, 7th at Manual High, is
outstanding in architectural
and industrial design;
GORDON AOYAGI. 5th at Manual, was

writer, outstanding leader;
RAY IMATAMI, 2nd in Brighton High
School, graduating as saluta-
torian of his class;
DARRYL KANEKO, Head Boy at Jeff-
erson High, was ranked as 2nd
in his class; -
CALVIN KATO. outstanding ROTC ca-
det at East High School, out-
standing in science and math;
RALPH MURA. 4th at Manual High,
was Vice-Head Boy, outstanding
in military science;
TERRI OSUGA. Head Girl at Manual,
outstanding school leader, and
active in school programs;
JAMES SUEKAMA. Valedictorian at
West High School, with a 4.00
average; inclined to science;
LILLIAN TERADA. Head Girl at West
High School; outstanding as a
leader in school activities.
DR. HERMAN H. LONG, a Ph.D. in
psychology from University of Mi-
chigan, and presently the Direc-
tor of the Race Relations Depart-
ment at Fisk University, was in-
vited to Denver, Colo., as a spe-
cial consultant during May, 1963.
for JACL Scholarships, which this
GORDON AOYAGI
GORDON AOYAGI, graduating from
Manual High School as 5th-ranked
scholar, has an outstanding re-
cord of activities in addition to
his academic accomplishments.
He was Head Boy (President of
the Student Body) at Manual High,
and Captain of the football team.
He has participated in various
speech contests, end has won both
City and State essay contests, as
well as placing in national com-
petitions.
AOYAGI has won a scholarship
to Colorado College, where he is
planning to enroll this fall, to
major in pre-med or education.
WEST HIGH SCHOOL
OPEN MEETING HELD
The Special Study committee on
Equality of Educational Opportun-
ities, in Denver public schools,
held a public meeting at West Hi,
on Thurs., May 23rd.
Similar open meetings have al-
ready been held at Manual, East,
and Abraham Lincoln high schools,
in order to allow parents and in-
terested citizens inquire as to
the status of equality of educa-
tional opportunities in the Den-
ver schools.
Future public meetings will be
scheduled for the remaining high
school areas, probably during the
fall. AJAs will be particularly
interested in the discussions re-
garding North High School. Watch
for announcements in Sept.

Our recently concluded food
benefit, although not quite as
successful as we had anticipated,
nevertheless re-
sulted in a sub-
stantial gain for
our depleted trea-
sury.
The factors in-
volved have been
duly noted and re-
corded for future
reference.
1 would like to
take this opportu-
nity to express ay sincere appre-
ciation and thanks to all who
participated in the Food Benefit,
and gave us so much of their val-
uable time.
I have felt from time to time,
that most of our members were a
little reluctant to support their
own organization, but the help
and support we received in put-
ting on this event, was certainly
enlightening and gratifying.
The one individual who de-
serves the most thanks is MAY TO-
RI ZAWA, our General Chairman, who
did an outstanding job. It Is
the opinion of all of the board
members and those who helped that
the event was one of the best co-
ordinated ever held, and to May
goes our deepest thanks and ap-
preciation.
JUNE GRADUATES' DINNER-DANCE
Our annual June Grads* Dinner-
Dance will be held at the Premier
Motel, on Set., June 15th.
We especially Invite proud pa-
rents and friends to come out to
honor our young graduates. The
dinner-dance is $5.00 per person,
and dance only $3.00 per couple.
Come out to support the Scho-
larship program! Full details on
back page of this issue.
MEMORIAL DAY
We will be honored to have
with us on Memorial Day this year
our National President, PAT OKURA
who will participate in the Ca-
thay Post'8 Memorial Dedication
services.
That same evening we plan to
host e joint dinner meeting with
the Ft. Lupton JACL at the Akebo-
no Restaurant. An added feature
will be the presence of SGI. HER-
SHEY MIYAMURA, the only living
Nisei CMH Winner.
With two such distinguished
guests, we hope you will find it
possible to attend this dinner
meeting. Reservations may be made
with members of the telephone
conittee or the JACL office. We
hope to see you all then.

until 1960 when the move was made
to the present Simpson Church lo-
