Page 6 t£? & Southwest Chinese Journal January 16-31, 1982 JUNE DOVE LEONG'S Message Everybody knows, if one has an ulcer, or if one has a lot of acidity, coffee makes it worse-gives one dyspepsia, gives one, as the television ads say, "acid-indigestion." The tendency is for afflicted people who love the taste of coffee, to have decaffeinated coffee, for they assume that it's the caffeine that is giving them the acidity. It turns out that, that's not so. Decaffeinated coffee gives the same hyperacidity as coffee with caffeine. So if you have an ulcer, and are expect- ing to have fewer ulcer symptoms by taking decaffeinated coffee...don't...it will do the same as regular coffee. What the substance is in decaffeinated coffee that stimulates the production of acid is yet not known, but millions of people who have a lot of acidity turn to decaffeinated coffee as a substitute. Chances are they are not going to get relief. China Film Week China Film Week officially opened in Houston a...

January 16-31, 1982 PSYCHOLOGY By WEINING C. CHANG, Ph D Psychologist ife ^ & Southwest Chinese Journal Page 7 In an Encounter Group One of the most traumatic, certainly the most emotion- ally taxing, experiences in my professional training is my three-months training in an "encounter group." This is a small group organized by a psychologist, called a facilitator, to study the interpersonal interactions of people, intending for each person in the group to experi- ence his/her interaction with other people, to gain more self-awareness of how he/she is perceived by other people and to learn how to deal with this perception. The purposes of the group sound innocuous enough; how- ever, it depends on the group in which one finds oneself, if members of the group are really "working" on its goals; otherwise, one may find that the experience can be hard to manage. I was in one of those groups that was "work- on the goals, thanks to the facilitator, a well known seasoned expert in conduc...

Page 8 ^ Southwest Chinese Journal January 16-31, 1982 GUNG HAY FAT CHOY Chinese New Year Traditions This year January 25th marks the first day of the CHINESE NEW YEAR. It is the year 4680 on the Chinese Lunar Calendar, the year of the Dog. The old Chinese calendar was based on a lunar year. Each month had 29 or 30 days, so that the full moon always fell on the fifteenth of the month. The lunar calendar, with twelve months comprising only 354 days, was less exact than the solar calendar, so leap years were given an extra month to compensate. Chinese New Year always occurs between Janu- ary 21st and February 19th; the exact date is determined by the moon. Traditionally, preparations were started about a fort- night before New Year's Day for this most important festi- val of the year. Food was prepared in advance, because no one was supposed to use knives, cleavers or scissors during the first five days of the New Year. No shops or markets were open on New Year's Day, or for three day...

January 16-31, 1982 r£j Southwest Chinese Journal Page 9 Dr. Fred Davm is the high- est rated Chinese American civil servant at the John- son Space Center. Having joined the manned space- craft center in 1962 with an extensive background in textiles and nonmetallic materials, Dr. Dawn has contributed heavily to Am- erica's manned space flight efforts with his technical papers, which have been used as models for numerous technical proposals. Dr. Dawn is a native of Shanghai. His father ob- served that in order to survive, mankind needed three essentials: food, shelter, clothing. Tex- tiles, then, became Dr. Dawn's field of endeavor; at one time, his family em- ployed over 20,000 workers. After earning degi.eet> dt the University of Wiscon- sin and other schools, Dr. Dawn ventured to Brazil where he established num- erous textile plants.

Lee, incognito by Bonnilee Since this is the "Year of the Dog," a tribute to our family dog seems appro- priate. Our family dog—he doesn' look special—no pedigreed dog here. He says he's a chihuahua, but somehow, he doesn't seem quite kosher. Maybe it's the ears or it could be his size. I had always pictured a chihuahu as a teeny tiny dog. At 10 pounds, he seems to be a little overgrown for his breed. Maybe it's a pitui- tary problem. He can be trusted to always be there when called especially when food is present. He's always in search of a good Samaritan. Every night, around dinner time, he can be found hanging around the dinner table. He knows he's in forbidden territory but he still sneaks under the far end of the table, away from the legs of "the lord master." He sits quietly looking up with street-urchin eyes at my sister—the one he's voted "most-like'ly-to-share.'' He's loyal ...

Attempts to prevent by disapproval-"No use to kick your legs around!" -proved futile. Shirley Gao Lee, an embryonic "Paderew- ski" at the keyboard, for- sook her piano studies for the greater fascination... the Dance Arts. Her successful climb to eventual stardom and equal status with leading perfor- mers of the dancing stage proved to her former piano instructor and to the world that her decision for the world of dance was a sound one. While in Hong Kong, she was featured with famous prima ballerinas Dame Margot Fonteyn and Heinz Bozl. She traveled across China to perform in many cultural centers and has been seen in shows for network television across America. O...
