JUNE 1983 & ^ fa Southwest Chinese Journal Page 13 The Message by June Dove Leong Recently Leadership Foundation monitored a two-months TV time period which found 2087 acts of violence, 1126 times of public sexual activity, 1619 sexually suggestive comments outside marriage, and 426 times of extra- marital sex. Another study by Harvard University showed that 70% of TV's references to sexual intercourses occurred between unmarried people or involved prostitutes. Martha Rountree, President of Leadership Foundation, a national education and research organization to fight for traditional American values for God, for country, for family, presents this provocative question, "Is this the kind of society you want America to become? Are these the type of people you'd want your children or grandchildren to become?" If scenes of permissiveness and irresponsibility are.not diverted, there is a fear that, that is life as it is going to be. For many years, Martha Rountreee worked in the broad...

JULY 1983 v?7 r£j I t MX. Southwest Chinese Journal Page 3 HIRE YOUR CHILDREN And Save Taxes BY GEORGE YEITER CPA One tax planning technique frequently used is to em- ploy children and other family members in the family business. It is especially useful with minor children as a means of shifting income from a high bracket tax- payer to low bracket taxpayers. For example, a 50% bracket taxpayer who hires his two children and pays them each $250 a month will shift $6,000 a year of income from his return and save $3,000 in income taxes. Unless the children have additional income from other sources, they wiLl pay no federal income tax on this compensation. In order to be deductible, compensation paid to your minor children must meet these two tests: 1. The amounts must be reasonable, and 2. rhe payments must be for services actually ren- dered . In using this technique, be sure to keep time records on the children showing the nature of services they performed, the responsibilities they ...

JULY 1983 ^7 \h ^ f fa Southwest Chinese Journal Page 7 REFLECTIONS BY WILLIAM DER BING Ever stop to think how many great and glorious things have occured in just the last few years? For instance, in the 1930's, during the depths of the de- pression era, we still remember how a family, working together, survived on just the barest of essentials, and sometimes not even that. in the 1940's, involved in the world's greatest conflict of differing ideolo- gies, we saw awesome destruction and in the aftermath, we saw great compassion. In the 1950's, we began to see weird gyrations that the older generation didn't quite understand. It was loud, different, at times bizarre, and with that territory came long hair and endless torment for parents and teachers. In the 1960's, we began to see a torrent of automobiles equip- ped with enough horsepower to send the accident and in- jury curve clear off the charts of the States' Depart- ments of Safety and necessitated the State Highway Patrols to p...

Page 8 \il flf Southwest Chinese Journal JULY 1983 MY VIEWS BY ALLAN GOR Several developments of concern to the national Asian American community give one reason to pause and consider once more Asian Americans' place in the society of this country which will be celebrating 207 years of independence from its mother country this month. I. Of local concern has been the recent re-emergence (and apparent resolution) of the Betty Waki Situation. In June, 1982, Betty Waki, an art teacher at Sharpstown High School, was not asked to return for the 1982-83 school year, despite 11 years of teaching excellence, because of the principal's application of the Singleton Ratio to classify this Japanese American teacher as white and then dismiss her because Sharpstown had too many white teachers under their faculty racial policy. Through the efforts of students, parents and members of the Asian American community, the School Board of the Houston Independent School Board was persuaded to retain Waki f...

The monument, at the site of the Hermann Park Rose Garden and the Chinese Pavilion, reads as follows, both in Chinese and English. "On the dawn of January 12, 1883, in Eagle's Nest, Texas, the final tie of the railroad joining the Pacific to the Gulf Coast was laid with a Silver Spike. Out of the many who accepted the challenge of the completion of the Southern Pacific Railroad, one self-sacrificing group of individuals insured its success: THE CHINESE. Without their tireless efforts and dauntless determination, the railroad, which started Houston and the Gulf on the way to its present position of prominence as America's lifeline for growth, would have been seriously delayed. This monument serves not only as a dedication to the significance of th...
