December, 1982 ^7 Southwest Chinese Journal Page 3 The Moon Chau Memorial Collection CACA Banquet by Allan Gor Leaders of Houston's restaurant community, Hous- ton Community College asso- ciates and members of the Chinese community joined Monica Chau in honoring her late father with the formal November 16 dedication of the Moon Chau Memorial Col- lection in the H.C.C. Library at 1300 Holman. The Collection, consisting of books written about the culinary arts, is named for chef Moon Fong Chau, who passed away in 1980. Those who conceived and organized the Collection singled out Mr. Chau because of the impression he left among his Houston colleagues. The books are only the beginning of a projected cooperative program in which the Houston restaurant community will link with H.C.C. to help provide comprehensive train- ing for neophyte chefs. The Collection, it was pledged, would grow in years to come to include the latest cook- ing volumes and instructional videocassettes, to be housed ...

*) m December, 1982 ^7 r^7 Southwest Chinese Journal Page 5 Director Enti Liu by June Dove Leong ^ i Enti Liu is the new Director of the Houston office of the Coordinating Council of North American Affairs of the Republic of China on Taiwan. In the very short time he and his beautiful wife, the former Linda Chang, have been in Houston, this engaging diplomatic pair has readily em- braced and been embraced by the local Chinese community. Past history has shown how significant the position of the Houston Director has been to manyvelements of the Houston Chinese community. It would be instructive for members of the community to learn more about those who have the delicate but rewarding task of maintaining Taiwan's ties with the people living in the United States. After graduation in '52 from National Taiwan University, Mr. Enti Liu decided to enter diplomatic service, and in 1958 was sent to Washington, D.C. to become Third Secre- tary. In 1963 upon his return to Taipei, he was intro- ...

December, 1982 & Southwest Chinese Journal Page 7 Aging in America: A Chinese Perspective by Dr. Wendy Fanq Aging is a normal biological process from conception to the end of life. The life span for humans is about 110 years genetically. The sign of aging is the deteriora- tion of the active function of a certain organ caused by either environmental factors, social pressures, mental stress, or all of the above. Unfortunately, western cul- ture has maintained a neglectful, discriminatory attitude toward the elderly. Industrialization has created an environment where fre- quent family relocation due to job opportunity takes place; where relationships between generations become more distant as children become more familiar with day- care centers rather than their grandparents; where con- temporary emphasis on individual independence over family interdependence has rendered obsolete the traditional useful purposes of the elder generation. Consequently, the elderly lose support from ...

Page 10 ^7 i£) ^ jfH Southwest Chinese Journal December, 1982 Reflections: For The Holidays. by William Der Bing Let's talk about effectiveness! After quite a few years of observing, serving, volunteering, knocking heads, leading, following, challenging and concurring, I find that any worthwhile project to be undertaken, any position worth assuming, any goals worth pursuing will be done with both a spirit of dispatch and camara- derie by all who take part, resulting in a mutual sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. We hope those days of such spirit have not now faded. Now, if one looks at the current state of organizatio- nal leadership development in our community, it would seem that all one has to do is ride in on someone else's coat-tails and either be the first banana, green onion or purple cow to be "elected." Then, if the rest, through intimidation of numbers, influence or assertive- ness, permit it to occur, it's more of the same - years of continued free-loading and ente...

Box 18603 s& $ & Houston, Texas 77223 January, 1983 Reflections for the New Year $ $ 1 by William Der Bing Each year around this time, many ethnic communities make plans for not one, but two New Year celebrations. The western-style celebration , more often than not, begins with a drink and ends with a hangover. The respective Asian American communities are not by any means sedate in their ways of celebrating the new year. They indulge in fireworks, sweet cakes and meats, fresh fruit (no self-respecting family would go into the new year without fruit), especially tangerines, grape- fruit, oranges, etc., in dishes of multiples of three, usually grouped in nine. More important, Asians custom- arily spend the new year's eve and new year's day with their family, relatives and friends. It is also a day when the family remember those of their members who have preceded them in...

January, 1983 \t] ^ Southwest Chinese Journal Page 3 "CHAN IS MISSING Ff by Allan Gor Houston's Council of Asian American Organizations is sponsoring the local Feb. 10 premiere of "Chan is Missing," the film which was recently named one of 1982's ten best films by Vincent Canby, prominent film reviewer of the New York Times. "Chan is Missing," direc- ted by Wayne Wang with a largely Asian American cast and crew, is long overdue with its first appearance in Houston. The nearly universal acclaim received by the film has enabled Wang to begin working on a new film this month. The premiere, at the Greenway 3 Theatres in Greenway Plaza East, is a CAAO fundraising event which will coincide with the approaching Chinese New Year 4681. The $10 admis- sion charge includes a re- ception in the theatre lobby, at 7:30 PM, followed by the film at 8:30. Proceeds will be used by the nonprofit, nonpartisan Council to continue its efforts in the Asian Ameri- can community. Having re- cently concluded...
