36 ccc *akUtt*2fÂ£Â£Â£ritwne Sun.,April]0,1966 Once Rejected by Oakland, Ogawa Now Sits on Council By BILL MARTIN For 45-year-old Frank H. Oga- tta, today is a long cry from Shortly after the Japanese attack on* Pearl Harbor, Ogawa, his new wife and his father-in- law were rounded up -- as were Americans-- and confined in a relocation center. They spent three years behind barbed-wire fences" at Topaz, Utah. And there, a 2^-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ogawa died of an illness. NO IRONY. BITTERNESS Today. Ogawa is a councilman of the city which once rejected him, the first Japanese American to attain that post. But no trace of irony or bitterness shows up in a talk with him. In fact. Ogawa now says, "We had to 'sell' ourselves by proving that we could be good citizens and by improving ourselves so that they (the Caucasians) would accept us." Ogawa has done just that. The list of civic organizations he was worked with is staggering. Perhaps most notable are hia liVe ^eals uii Gaiuaiiti'i I'e- nowned Park Commission. RESIGNS OTHER POSTS He has resigned that post and a l s o his directorship on the Oakland Chamber of Commerce -- just to avoid any possible, conflict of interest incident, in! the latter case. He has been active in such v a r i e d pursuits as the Boy | S c o u t s , businessmen's clubs, and professional organizations linked with his own business-a wholesale nurseryman. "I felt I should be interested In all these things and to contribute something to society," ne says. 'WE SHOULD LISTEN' Oakland's minority race problem is Ogawa's major concern at this time, and he endorses freshman Mayor John H. Reading's new program to open up communications between C i t y Hall and the minority races. . "These people want to be b e a r d , " he says, "and we should listen to them." Big Splash For Lake Mendocino URIAH - Lake Mendocino, i four miles north of here, opened 'its 1966 season last week with the expectation of serving near- j ly a million visitors this year. The lake last year recorded 676,638 visitors and there were 'more than 10.000 boats registered, according to Lt. Col. Robert H. Allan, San Francisco Army district engineer. Fishermen b a g g e d 12,000 pounds of fish, from rainbow trout and bass to catfish and ; bluegill. The lake offers seven devel- j oped recreation areas, including j Cancer Fund May Save 700 Lives During 1966 The current Cancer Crusade fund-raising appeal may help save the lives of an estimated 700 Contra Costa County residents during 1966, leaders said today. That is the estimated number j obtain of county men, women and chil- tion. dren who will lose their lives h e l p of early detection and treatment, one-third of all cancer patients are now being saved. One-half could be saved if victims were properly alerted to cancer's warning siens and prompt medical atten- needlessly to cancer this year unless their treatment begins in time, spokesmen for the Contra Costa Branch of the American Cancer Society noted.

OGAWA FAMILY With new councilman: wife Grace, son Alan H e adds, "Because I'm a member of a minority race myself, I know how it feels." He recalls the post-World War II days when he returned to California. "They didn't want us back .. . restaurants had signs: 'No Japs wanted here' . . . We ate there anyway." Penniless, he and his family l i v e d in an East Oakland Methodist c h u r c h until they could regain occupancy of the home they owned. BORROWS ?3,000 He borrowed $3,000 from a relative to restart the business he formed in 1941. His nursery today is a major supplier to retail nurseries throughout Northern California, doing a $700,000 annual business. O g a w a credits his wife, Grace, with helping to make the business successful. Their son, Alan, a 19-year-old San Francisco State College student, is what Ogawa proudly describes as a "Sansei" -- a t h i r d - g e n e r a t i o n Japanese American. A Nisei -- or second generation--Japanese American himself, Ogawa adds still another r a c i a l background to a city council which already has two members of Italian descent (Fel i x Chialvo and Fred Maggiora); a Negro (Joshua Rose); F r e n c h-English (Howard Rilea); Irish (Robert Osborne); German-N o r w e g i a n (Paul Brom); Yugoslavian (Dan Marovich), and English (Reading). the Inc. name because of it. The firm supplies part-time workers to businesses. Stockholders gave their approval in Detroit Wednesday to dropping the 'Â·girl" from the title. The 700 figure is equal to one- half the number of new cancer cases expected in the county this year. Contra Costa County's 1966 cancer crusade quota for medical research, public education and service to patients is $102,575, county campaign chairman Warren Willsey added. Business and industry phases of the drive are now under way under direction of Lee Fisher of Moraga. T h e countywide residential c a n v a s s under leadership of Mrs. Sigmund Milford of Moraga will be conducted April 15-17. Ike to Return to Gettysburg Home PALM DESERT, CAlif.

AEC Aides End Tour of U.S. A r* M-jmasner oire rrospeas SACRAMENTO - (UPI) Officials of the Atomic Energy Commission (A EC) Saturday ended their cross-country tour of proposed sites for the world's largest atom smasher with indi- c a t i o n s that financial offers from competing states would weight in their decision. The nine-man group headed by AEC chairman Dr. Glenn T. Seaborg, departed for Washington after touring California's entry for the $375 million prize: a 5,000-acre piece of grassy Sierra foothills some 30-miles east of downtown Sacramento. Gov. Edmund G. Brown, flying in from an Easter vacation Saturday at Palm Springs, told the AEC task force, "the state of California wants this very badly and we're willing to do anything within reason to achieve it." The AEC group left Washing- t o n Thursday and inspected ison, Wise., Chicago, and Denver, Colo., before arriving here. The sixth site, on Long Island, outside New York City, will be toured later. ALL SATISFACTORY Seaborg has said the 200 billion electron volt nuclear particle accelerator could be built on any of the six sites. "Final selection will be a matter of small differences and j cost is certainly a factor," he I said. He added that so far as he j knew, California's offer of $15 j million for site acquisition and ! improvement w a s "competi- i tive." i The money was promised by \ the legislature last week after a j Senate floor fight during which opponents challenged the value States are competing not only for the prestige it would bring, but for the $50 million annual payroll for about 2,000 scientists and technicians. Seaborg said the AEC task force should choose a site by the end of the year and submit i t s recommendation to Congress. Estimates are that the project would take eight years to buil'd and would become the center of worldwide atomic re- search. The AEC group spent about four hours examining the Sierra foothill site, including briefings from state officials on its various advantages. These included descriptions of Californias' higher education system, Sacramento's new jet airport, power, water and other features. "I don't care where you go in the entire United States y o u ' won't find a better place to live and work," Brown said. prompt service REPRESENTATIVE PAYMENT SCHEDULES Â· SENSATIONAL CARPET OFFER with 20-YEAR WEAR WARRANTY!
