Southwest Chinese Journal THE VOICE OF THE CHINESE AMERICAN COMMUNITY VOL. 9, NO. 4 P.O.BOX 18603 HOUSTON, TEXAS 77223 APRIL 1984 Hannah Chow, Candidate for Judge By Sandra Wong Der Bing Attorney Hannah L. Chow set a milestone in October 1975 by becoming the first female of Chinese descent to be admitted to the Texas State Bar. In continuing along her path in the judicial world, Hannah is pres- ently a candidate for Judge of the Harris County Civil Court No. 3, running in the Democratic Party primary election on May 5.

APRIL 1984 ^ it] "f 4ll Southwest Chinese Journal Page 3 Hannah Chow Continued from page 1 Besides being the first female of Chinese descent to be admitted to the Texas State Bar, Hannah states she is also the first female Chinese attorney to practice courtroom litigations. When questioned why she decided to pursue Family Law and the General Prac- tice of Law, Hannah quickly replies, "Because I wanted to break the stereotype of Chinese not being within the area of law that involves the courtroom. Too often are Chinese attorneys, especially females, stereotyped to be corporate or business attorneys sitting behind a desk, hardly ever stepping into a courtroom Another stereotype I wanted to break was the idea that Chinese attorneys usually handle immigration, I have had many instances where attorneys would approach me and ask how immigration is doing, assuming that this was my area of law practice." Hannah's decision to run forjudge reflects her deter- mination and credence in herself ...

APRIL 1984 ^ Southwest Chinese Journal Page 5 MORE COMMUNITY NEWS Liu Wedding By June Dove Leong George and Gloria Gee are so much a part of Chi- nese Baptist Church, that it can almost be said, they are a synonym. At weddings, the young people look to Gloria for her talent at the piano and organ. Blood related or not, George, a friend of all the young, is affectionately addressed as "Uncle" George Appropriately, not at the piano or organ, Saturday, March 17th, Gloria Gee sat in the congregation in the place reserved for the mother of the bride, while George accompanied his eldest daughter Alice down the middle aisle.

Many Americans, including Asian Americans, are being diagnosed as having high blood pressure or hypertension. This condition can be very harmful to your circulatory system and kidneys It tends to be aggravated by obesity as well. One thing that can help lessen the problem is reducing the amount of sodium in one's diet. This is sometimes difficult to do because Chinese seasonings tend to have a lot of sodium But if your physician advises a low sodium diet or if you, for better health's sake, would like to cut back on sodium, here are some tips: 1) Choose fresh foods rather than canned, frozen or preserved. Most frozen and canned foods have salt added to them, although some food manufacturers such as Del Monte are offering a "no salt added" line of vegetables. 2) Experiment with low sodium or no sodium spices, herbs and flavorings. Some suggestions are curry, lemon and lime juice...

APRIL 1984 \%1 H't 4ll Southwest Chinese Journal Page 9 By Sandra Wong Der Bing There's a popular adage that states, "A picture is worth a thousand words," and for award-winning pho- tographer Alvin Wong Gee, his pictures seem to cap- ture this essence for admiring viewers and professional colleagues. Describing himself as "a frustrated artist," this native Houstonian first became interested in photography because of his inability to draw a straight line. After serving as a photographer and as yearbook editor for Westbury High School, Alvin continued his education at the University of Houston, receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in Radio-TV Communications in 1977, Along with the curriculum in his major, Alvin also took many photography courses at the university. In 1978 Alvin opened up his first photography busi- ness. Looking back, Alvin states, "My parents encour- aged'me greatly in my pursuit of photography as my career. Usually the typical Chinese parent would want their child t...

Page 10 r£j Mr Southwest Chinese Journal APRIL 1984 IN HIS TIME — By George Gee I remember reading a true story about a 17-year-old Vietnamese girl who was the only survivor of a group of 50, who fled Communist Vietnam for Australia. She survived for 140 days under extreme circumstances. It seems that all concerned were in a thirty foot boat that sailed the waters, only to have the motor go out after one day. They drifted for many days and came to a reef where another boat was also shipwrecked, and waded over to it because it was much bigger She told of water and food gone after time, and of people dying daily when human resources were gone. Bats attacked several times during the nights, scratch- ing and often sucking blood as they fought them. She was one of the few who picked up a dead bat, pulled it apart and ate it. She did this on two occasions. Then as the days moved along, and their bodies began to look like skeletons, the sea gulls would come along and eat the dead bodies fl...
