August 1-15, 1982 S Register to Vote -j in Chinatown ^7 r£j Southwest Chinese Journal Photographers Select Gee's Work Page 5 by Allan Gor On weekends, many hundreds of Houston's Asian Americans come to Chinatown to shop, visit and take care of parti- cular duties. From now till October 2: there is one special duty which Asian Am- ericans can take care of in Chinatown: Register to Vote. Raymond Lew, voter regis- tration coordinator of the Council of Asian American Organizations, has organized a voter registration drive for the Asian American commu- nity. Volunteers will be stationed outside First Oriental Market, 904 St. Emanuel, on alternating Sat- urdays (August 7 and 21, September 4 and 18, October 2) and Sundays (August 15 and 29, September 12 and 26) to register Asian American citi- zens to vote in the November 2 general election. To be eligible to vote, a person must be an American citizen, 18 years old or over and registered 30 days before the election. The Council of Asian Am...

Paqe 6 & r^J ^Southwest Chinese Journal August 1-15, 1982 Peter Wong, Developer by Allan Gor Ground-breaking ceremonies took place July 2 for the latest realty project for developer Peter Wong. The Rankin Park project, in the F.M. I960 area, will in- clude a Travelodge Motor Inn, shopping strip and office complex. The project is a joint venture with Natural Nine, Inc., a group from Malaysia and Singapore. The project will be completed between 1983 and L984. With offices in Houston, Dallas, Beaumont, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong Taiwan and Japan, Wong finds Hous- ton an ideal location for realty development. In Houston alone, he is cur- rently involved in at least 12 projects which represent a total of $44.5 million. Along with his Houston hold- ings, Wong recently bought part interest in a hotel in Hawaii, called the Kuilima Hyatt Resort. Developer Wong, originally from Hong Kong, lived in Ontario, Canada from 1972 to 1979 before moving to Houston 2% years ago with wife Brenda...

Auaust 1-15, 1982 ^ rll Southwest Chinese Jourriql Page 7 On Bilingualism by Wei Ning Chang, Ph.D. (A Southwest Chinese Journal reprint. 5-80) Some Chinese parents encourage their children to speak only English for fear that if they do not speak English as other Americans do,they may not get the same positions in the society as the other Americans. Others, on the other hand, try very hard to teach their children Chinese but are fighting a losing battle. Bilingualism is largely still a mystery. Psychologists have yet to discover a process which enables us to accom- modate more than one language. As a matter of fact, the studies of the acquisition of language, an important part of psycholinguistics, are still at a beginning stage. The world is getting smaller; the advantages of using more than one language are increasing. Judging from the examples of many successful bilinguals, it suffices to say that biling- ualism does not hurt. Perhaps the issue is not whether children should or sh...

Page 8 fa Southwest Chinese Journal August 1-15, 1982 A Difference of Language by Allan Gor Sari Francisco's Judy Yung, a writer/researcher who was recently in Houston to conduct interviews for the Chinese Women's History in America project, noted to this writer that a significant number of her interview subjects, whom of course she did not identify by name, expressed regret that they did not try harder to instill in their children a greater appreciation for their Chinese cultural heritage, and especially to encourage their learning to speak Chinese. Most of the women Yung interviewed had raised children in the 1950s and 1960s; the generation emerging from that period are now raising children of their own. Along with the Chinese more recently arrived to Houston, these con- temporary Chinese parents now recognize the identity-in- forming value of giving their children instruction in Chinese culture and language. Since the 1970s, schools such as the Institute of Chinese Culture, taugh...

Yes, and every Christian should learn every Bible verse by heart. Non- Chinese assume that because I am Chinese I must know enough to speak the language—"How do you say giant arma- dillo in Chinese?" When I was nine, two recently-immigrated boys from Hong Kong were placed in my third grade class. After the first day, it was obvious their English was non-existent. My teacher called me to her desk and asked me to interpret for her their attempts to communicate. Bewildered, I explained I could no more help them than Mary Lou Hinojosa, in the desk behind me, could. Yes, it would have been nice if I could have known the language and helped them out those first days, but I didn't and couldn't, and how can a 9-year-old feel guilty for not knowing something he had little control over? After a few days of trying to adjust, the two boys (wh...

Page 10 Dermatologist Jia-Yen Chi by Juiw Dovt Ltong ° Dr. Jia-Yen Chi is one of the few Chinese dermatolo- gists in the greater Houston metropolitan area. His Pasa- dena Dermatology Clinic is easily accessible on the main thoroughfare of South Tatar, opposite the new shopping mall in Pasadena. For those who feel comfortable convers- ing in the native tongue, Dr. Chi speaks Mandarin and Fu- kienese, as well as English. His name Jia-Yen is most suitable , for it means ex- cellent scholar, and truly it describes him well. Jia-Yen was born in Taiwan, graduated from the National Taiwan University, acquired his Ph.D. in 1972 in Syra- cuse, New York from the Up- state Medical Center, a branch of the State Univer- sity of New York. He conti- nued to pursue studies at New York Upstate where in & &) ^ Southwest Chinese Journal past was when he was pres- ented the M.'D. degree.

Jane for the most part is unperturbed, parti- cularly when someone as special as Oregonian Sally comes to town. It was pleasant to catch up on the intervening years 1954- when Sally left Houston. The move away from Texas started in 1951 when Sally, along with Nancy Leo Wong and Ruby Gee Dong, vacationed in New York City. While there Sally met an artist by the name of Allen Wong. Return- ing to Texas to complete her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the University of Texas enabled her to later work as a fashion designer for such prestigious firms as Butter- ick and Simplicity and later as a free-lance degigner.

During the 1981 Miss Chinatown Houston competition, beautiful Vir- ginia emerged a close second as runner-up. With the ex- perience gained from last year, she edged out all com- petition, rising triumphant- ly as winner of the 1982 Miss Chinatown Houston Page- ant. Her sponsor, Bo Bo Lang Theatre, can be justly proud of its candidate, who played a piano performance of Chopin's Harp Etude, op. 25, number 1. Sponsored by the Chinese Restaurant Association, Wai Man Ip was named as runner- up. If for any reason Miss Chang cannot be in San Fran- cisco to represent Houston during the 1983 Miss China- town USA pageant, Miss Ip wi...

The bill is still pending in both houses of Congress, and before it becomes law, it must be approved by a majority vote in both the Senate and the House of Representatives and then signed by the President. During this process, additional changes may be made on the bill in the form of admendments introduced by individual Congressmen. Of key concern to many in the community has been the omission in the bill of the visa category for brothers and sisters of American citizens known as the "fifth preference." Several Congressmen have recognized the significance of the fifth preference catego...

Significant is the fact that young people have undertaken active roles in their church, finding joy in serving the Lord within His Earthly Home. Perhaps one factor in the longevity of Chinese Baptist Church may be its nurturing of young Christian couples to work, share and build for the future in a Christian enviroment, for good seed has grown in fertile soil and the harvest has been abundant. It is gratifying to note that in recent months, Chi- nese Baptist's pastor, the Rev. Lok-Tin Cheung, has united in marriage such fine young people as Lawrence and Yee Fan of the Sunday School Department...

CHANG, Ph.D. Psych oiofist In Pursuit of Happiness Each morning on my way to work, I have to pass this area where vandalism has taken its toll in broken windows, garbage is strewn on the streets, store win- dows and doors are boarded and heavily chained. This is surely a most depressing place in which to live. There are often people loitering on the street, and people, old and young, sitting on the steps, staring blankly into space. Many of my friends avoid this area by driving on the freeway. They say it would be dangerous to drive through there. But at times I sense that they avoid the place because they do not want to be reminded of the unhappiness and squalor one sees there. However, there is a most incongruous sight 1 found there recently - a neat little house at the corner of the street. The house is painted in colors of gaiety, the lawn is well kept, and a little white fence delineates a small ga...

There is a festival for every season; a festival for poets, a festival for lovers, for the moon, for the rain. There is even a festival for ghost- yes, even for ghosts. On the fifteenth day of the seventh moon, legend has it that the emperor of the underground opens the gates and lets all the ghosts out to visit their families and friends. Mothers and kids would make paper 'money' really yellow- ish pieces of paper with a scarlet chop inprint in a red muddy ink; fold "gold" and "silver" treasures. These of- ferings were then burned in the yard for the dead rela- tives to be used for their expenses underground. Surely, there must be villages, courts and markets underground, where the dead must, like the living, need funds for goods, clothing and such. On the...
