WHAT ARE YOU DOING
WHERE DO YOU 8TAND?
By John Tachlbana
To my American friends of Jap
anese ancestry: .
Under the American law citizen
ship may be acquired in two ways,
namely, by birth and by naturaliz
ation. We, Americans of oriental
ancestry, have the right to citizen
ship by birth of which you all know.
We all have heard about Mr. Oza
wa's case concerning naturalization
which has been refused by tin.
United States government, so Mr.
Ozawa and the rest of his fellow
friends of Japanese subject cannot
become an American citizen. Thougl.
Mr. Ozawa's character has been
good and he has become an Amer
ican in every Bense of the word,
he was denied American citizenship.
Therefore we, Americans of Japan
ese ancestry, should be proud of our
citizenship rights in America. We
all have learned that all nations ol
the world have laws to take care
of themselves; Isn't America one
This particular case has been caus
ing many misunderstandings in the
Japanese community, and I think
it should be remedied. We all know
that the Japanese government Is
making her own la a a to suit her
and her poople. Can't oilier nat'ois
of the world do the same? Especial
ly In America where the people is
the government, so to say, we ex
pect more freedom of will and
speech, for the people and by the
people. A little thought enables us
to see that any nation has the right
to say who shall be citizens and
who shall not. So, If you Americans
of Japanese ancestry are getting
furious about this Ozawa's case and
conclude that it was a decision baa
ed upon racial prejudice, Just cool
down a little and say: "Well our
citizenship is worth a billion dol
lars." Have a spirit that you are
an American and always an Ameri
can. Furthermore, we should be
proud of the privileges handed
down to us by our national govern
ment. This particular case of Mr.
Ozawa at the present has proven
that our citizenship in America is
worth ten times the face value It had
before. I am very glad this partic
ular case came up ,and we all must
lie proud of our rights ns a citi-
en in America.
On the other hand, If you feel
proud of your citizenship then you
should not fail to be loyal to your
beloved U. S. A. How can we be
come faithful and loyal Americans?
That is a question to which the Fu
ture is bending lt3 ear. Before we
consider anything else, remember
the word: PATRIOTISM. By patriot
ism we mean In doing one's utmost
to make one's own country, namely,
America, strong, glorious, honorable
among the other nations of the
world, In order that she may best
benefit all humanity and serve' the
people with Its utmost care. Also
remember that America exists not
for the sake of its own glory and
greatness but that she Is striving,
though slow, for the sake of the
Mlory and greatness of all mankind.
Knowing that your country has
been established for a definite pur
pose, we shall bear in our heart and
say to ourselves, "1 will, endeavor
to make America great and glorious;
1 will work to make her reach her
beautiful and lofty ideals of free
dom, brotherhood and equality, not
simply for her own sake, but so
that she may in turn be able to
help lift up the rest of the world
into the realization of humanity's
niaglnlflcent ideals of equality, free
dom and brotherhood."
To those who have been a victim
of Cupid and to those who are plan
ning to be, remember to keep your
loines free and independent. Let
your home bo in which you shall
teach your daughters that modesty
and patience and gentleness are the
charms of womanhood. Do make
your home, churches of freedom and
liberty, and teach to your sons that
an honest living Is every man's first
law. Show them the good that Wash
ington, Lincoln and other patriots
have done and teach him so that
nothing can steal from him the

of Jimmy Taylor
T. B. Preston, of Ionia, Michigan,
whose son, Lt. Phillip Preston, is
now in France, read before a Red
Cross ratification meeting In Ionia,
the following letter in which Lt.
Preston pays the highest compli
ments to the work of James Taylor,
Y. M. C. A. war work secretary:
"He Js a wonder, and I think more
of him each time I see him. I hung
around him tor the most of two days
and I really think I put him to some
little trouble. He gives hundreds of
of cups of chocolate and apples away
besides making a place where the
men can read and write and buy a
bit of tobacco or nuts, etc. But that
Is the least part of lt.
"Ho has the best way of passing
a few remarks with the teamsters
and men, and they actually seem
more cheerful for having met him.
One often hears that expression used
but never was it more true. Every
one thinks the old Englishman Is a
wonder, and he is the happiest fel
low you ever saw.
"He works day and night, and Is
certainly leading a great life, and
when I left he sent me away with
a can of apple sauce, Jam and a
pocketful of apples one would have
thought . I was his only son, but he
treats everyone the same fine way;
that's the best of It'
This letter was written April 11,
and the next written April 20,
gives the remainder of the story.
"The worBt thing possible has
happened -Ulnimle Taylor has been
'gassed.' I can't seem to get the
dope on how it happened. The one
thing I worry about is that he will
start fussing around before he is
completely over It.
"It would do his heart good to
see how much interest is being tak
en in his case around here. Every
one knows him 'professionally' and
the news spread faster than if a
regiment were wiped out. I'm proud
to know him."
