TRUE YASUI. . General Factotum
So often, It ie the war bride
who is in trouble, who gets into
the news, who is talked about.
The ones who lead ordinary,
unspectacular lives those who
have made good adjustments to a
new country, new ways, a new lan-
guage go unnoticed.
Today, I'd like to tell about
a Japanese war bride who has done
a tremendous Job of making good.
Her no< is M1SA0 SAW ADA. For
the past two years, she has lived
in Arvada, with her three daugh-
ters, and her elderly mother-in-
law.
Her husband is MAJ. KEN SAWADA
who was shipped off to an assign-
ment in Okinawa even before his
fally could move into the home
he had bought.
So Mlaao Sawada signed all the
final papers, made arrangements
with movers, and took possession
of the home, in a strange neigh-
borhood. She located the nearest
shopping center, made friends at
the service station so she would
be sure her car would keep runn-
ing, enrolled her children in
school, and took them to church.
Then, because she dldnt' have
a Colorado license, altho she is
an expert beautician, she went to
a beauty school and brushed up on
local regulations. When she took
her examinations, her grades were
highest in the dess. After that
she found a part-time job, in a
beauty salon to supplement the
allotment from her husband*
All of these things would have
been notable accomplishments for
any woman. Misao Sawada did them
with the additional handicap of
an incomplete knowledge of Eng-
lish.
MAJOR SAWADA, his tour com-
pleted, came home the other day.
He had good reason to be proud of
his wife. All of us can Join him
in his pride, for his war bride
is a remarkable woman.
Thanksgiving Day
Thanksgiving Day, 1963, will be remembered as a sorrowful day, com-
ing so soon after the unthinkable assassination of our late President,
JOHN F. KENNEDY. But, in a sense, perhaps it will be more signifi-
cant for all of us to give thanks
surmount even this terrible tra-
gedy, and go forward to its des-
tiny of hope for all free men of
good will.
Tho bon to wealth and luxury,
JOHN F. KENNEDY had a warmth for,
and a faith in the ordinary man,
no matter his skin color or raci-
al antecedents it is up to us
to prove that men of all ethnic
backgrounds can contribute to the
common good of all mankind.
In a small way, perhaps, the
Joint Thanksgiving Day services
of Buddhists, Jews, Unitarians,
and Quakers, held in Denver, sym-
bolises the spirit exemplified by
our lste President; we need more
of such joining together of dif-
ferent peoples to make us all a
little better and a little more
understanding of each other.
OUTSTANDING AJAs
Aa Indicated in the supplemen-
tal Mtn-Plaina Convention issue,
enclosed herewith, five Americans
of Japanese ancestry, and a group
of JACL Ladies, will receive Cer-
tificates of Recognition for out-
standing contributions in speci-
fic fields of endeavor, on Sat.,
Nov. 30th.
The selections comittee was
chaired by BILL ROSOKAWA. Com-
mittee members were SUM! TAKENO,
ROBERT MARUYAMA, BILL KUROKI, and
FRANK Y0K00JI of Ft. Lupton.
Actually, there were a great
many worthy nominees among AJAs
in this region, who have accomp-
lished outstanding achievements
in their respective c amenities.
For the biennium of 1961-1963,
the committee named five distin-
guished individuals, and the JACL
Ladles of Omaha, Nebr., for this
region's highest honors. We urge
as many people as possible to at-
tend the banquet to do them honor
for their deeds honor us, aa AJAs
of this Mtn-Plaina area.
