TRUE YASUI. .General Factotum
Somewhere along the line there
was established a myth that the
Japanese who migrated to the U.S.
were stern, sober-sided, strictly
no-nonsense people, tdto were al-
most. Puritanical in their devo-
tion to duty.
Like most myths, this one has
an element of truth. The Japa-
nese immigrants as a group were a
hard-working lot.
They were energetic, and they
had to struggle to survive in the
old country. They were also am-
bitious. They brought their work
habits with them to the U.S.
But, it is also true that they
liked fun, and I hope that those
who ultimately will produce the
JACL UCLA "History of the Japa-
nese in America" will take proper
note of this side of their cha-
racter.
The Xs8ei liked their drinking
and partying and feasting. They
observed their festivals, and it
didn't take much of an excuse to
touch off a gay celebration.
Though most of them had but
little in way of worldly goods,
they very seldom skimped on their
pleasures.
Even now, today, in our own
little comunity here, you will
find not-so-young Issei enduring
six hours of driving for a day of
mushroom-seeking in the mountains
above Red Feather Lakes.
They'll drive half the night
for a half-day of trout fishing
in Wyoming, then turn around and
drive home again and get up early
the next morning to go to work.
This sort of real dedication
to pleasure deserves to be noted
along with their industrious ap-
plication to their money-making
and family-rearing.
Come to think of it, the Issei
were a pretty remarkable group of
people. And the Nisei are fortu-
nate to have inherited many of
their more admirable traits.
"JACL AND CIVIL RIGHTS"
National JACL reiterated its basic belief in the equality of all
Americans and supported the present drive for civil rights throughout
the United States, by a declaration of a select committee named by
Nat'l Pres. K. PATRICK OKURA, in Omaha, Nebr., on July 20-21.
The special comnittee, which met in Omaha, was composed of Natl
Pres. OKURA, Washington representative MIKE MASAOKA, Nat'l Director
MASAO W. SATOW, Natl Legal Counsel WILLIAM MARUTANI of Philadelphia,
Past Pres. FRANK F. CHUMAN of Los
Angeles, and MIN YASUI of Denver,
for Mtn-Plains JACL. The commit-
tee's statement began as follows:
"AS AMERICANS OF JAPANESE AN-
CESTRY WHO JUST 20 YEARS AGO SUF-
FERED UNPRECEDENTED DEPRIVATION
OF CIVIL RIGHTS AND LOSS OF PRO-
PERTY SOLELY ON THE BASIS OF OUR
ANCESTRY, WE SUPPORT THE PRESENT
STRUGGLE FOR HUMAN DIGNITY NOW
BEING DRAMATIZED BY NEGRO FELLOW
AMERICANS.
"THE JACL THEREFORE ENDORSES
INTENSIFIED PARTICIPATION IN RES-
PONSIBLE AND CONSTRUCTIVE ACTIVI-
TIES TO OBTAIN CIVIL EQUALITY,
SOCIAL JUSTICE, AND FULL ECONOMIC
AND EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES, AS
A MATTER OF FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT FOR
ALL AMERICANS REGARDLESS OF RACE,
COLOR OR NATIONAL ORIGIN."
Brave and noble words, these.'!
But, it takes more than words and
lip-service to win equality for
all Americans. All of us, as in-
dividuals and as an organization,
need to unceasingly strive to-
wards these goals.
During evacuation, we perhaps
thought that other Americans had
forsaken us. How we wished
that voices had been raised for
us!
Today, when the Negro American
spear-heads the drive for equal
civil rights, and is willing to
spill his blood in the streets,
for all of us, It is high time we
join in this crusade!
After all, the Negro is not
only fighting for his rights, but
for the rights of all Americans!
Write to your Congressmen and
Senators! Urge them to pass the
Civil Rights bill.
TSBC APTS. INC.
JAMES KANEM0T0, Chrmn of TSBC
Apartments Inc., indicated chat
the Church project to construct a
million dollar apartment building
In Denver has been delayed.
The FHA is requiring the spon-
soring organization to post cash
bonds to guarantee against possi-
ble operating losses.
Real estate tax liability of
such projects is now being studi-
ed by the state legislature. The
proposed TSBC Apartments would be
taxed about $30,000 annually, un-
less exemption is granted.
Until the question of tax lia-
bility is determined, the project
is uncertain, stated KANEMOTO.

SEPT.. 1963,
Summer's gone!22
Every year, around this time,
that familiar old refrain "Back-
to-School" goes into effect. But
activities of the summer are not
forgotten. .
Early in Aug., a "Going-Away"
party was given for ALENE TERA-
SAKI, at the home of MIKE ARIKI.
ALENE left for Germany as an ex-
change student on Aug. 16th, and
will complete her senior year of
high school in Bemerode, Germany.
BRUCE HORIUCHI, a graduate of
South High in Denver, and junior
at University of Washington, was
selected for a year's study, in
Europe. He is the son of Mr. &
Mrs. ROBT. M. HORIUCHI of Denver.
IRIS YASUI put in a worthwhile
summer as a Red Cross Volun-Teen,
at the Children's Asthmatic Cen-
ter, with 200 hours of service.
This year, KARLENE GOTO will
be the new Head Girl at Cole Jr.
Hi. Together with the Head Boy,
KARLENE will be in charge of stu-
dent government at Cole Jr. High.
SHIRLEY ETO of North High, and
JUDY SATO of Mapleton High, were
both elected as Cheerleaders, and
will be busy this fall as the In-
terschool sports competition gets
underway. Both have been faith-
fully practicing in preparation
for games this fall.
Among AJAs selected to attend
leadership camps, this summer,
were:
SHUNY SUGIURA, of West High, to
Red Cross leadership camp, at
Camp Wilaha in Idaho Springs;
ROBERT SUYAMA, of West High, to
leadership camp, at Camp Che-
ley near Estes Park;
BARBARA HORIUCHI from Kunsmlller
Junior High to the Pine Crest
leadership camp, Palmer Lake.
DENVER AJA SCHOOL TEACHERS
According to the best figures thst we can obtain, there are now 27
AJAs among the more than 3,800 teachers in the Denver Public School
system for the 1963-64 school year.
As we have compiled figures, this is a net gain of only two, over
last year's figure of 25 AJAs in the Denver Public School system. As
best we can determine, 3 AJA teachers have resigned, and 5 new teach-
ers are starting their first year
in the Denver school system.
As best we can determine,
new teachers are:
YOSHIYE HAG1YA
RICHARD JOKO.
FRANK ONO .
ELAINE TSUMURA
TED TSUMURA .
the
. Wyatt School
Rishel Jr. High
Grant Jr. High
Ellsworth School
. Manual High
We have lost touch with three
AJA teachers, who seem to have
left the Denver school system:
Columbian............KIYOMI NISHI
Smiley Jr. Hi. MERLE IWAMOTO
Manual High. SAYOKO TAKATA
Interestingly enough, as best
we could determine, there were
only two transfers to different
schools, by AJAs: HASON YANAGA,
from Mitchell to Ash Grove; and
SOPHIA OKA from Swansea to Ebert.
JOE ARIKI was promoted last year
from palmer School to become the
Asst. Principal at Greenlea.
