Southwest Chinese Journal THE VOICE OF THE CHINESE AMERICAN COMMUNITY VOL. 10 NO. 1 P. O. BOX 18603 & at & HOUSTON, TEXAS 77223 FEBRUARY 1985 Feasts, Firecrackers Greet New Year No festival in the world is celebrated with as much gusto, as much feasting and as much noise as the Chinese New Year. It is Thanksgiving and Christmas and 4th of July all rolled into one. . . and then some. The Chinese calendar marks the year by the 12 30-day cycles of the moon, thus Chinese New Year is a moveable feast. The festival mood can be felt at the beginning of "la yueh," the 12th moon of the lunar calendar. "La" means smoked or salted meats and as New Year's Day approaches, housewives are busy pre- paring these and other special foods Markets will be closed for five days and one must not clean house in the early days of the New year lest one disturb the good luck it has already brought. New clothes are made for children and holiday garb prepared for the elders. During the last month of the...

Franklin was one of five law enforcement officers singled out for outstanding service in 1984 at the annual ceremony January 31st at the Astro Village Hotel. Three years ago, the Inwood section of Hous- ton was fraught with crime. Franklin described the situation in the subdivision: "People were really scared living out there. They didn't want to leave home because they were afraid someone would break in - then they'd lose everything they had. When I started out there, that's what they told me - so I tried to do my best. We try to make the people happy." And what is Franklin's formula for making them happy? "We talk to the young people when they're out playing ...

PAGE 8 r£j ^ Southwest Chinese Journal FEBRUARY 1985 REFLECTIONS By William D«r Bing, Sr. One of the most interesting, informative exhibits about Chinese Americans to come to Houston is the one featuring Chinese Women of America. Coming over on the promises of the "Golden Mountain" and treated as chattel, the spirit of these women has become the strengthening fibers holding communities such as ours together all over this nation. It was not a difficult decision to highlight the achievements of these Chinese American Women, some native born, some naturalized, somestill legal residents, but all have contributed. Those who undertook the task to put together this exhibit did an admirable job. It added immeasurably to the communities' understanding of the tough roles Chinese American Women undertook in this country. We are enjoying the legacy of their courage, stamina, patience, kindness, integrity, humbleness, and love. God bless the souls of each one of those who have since departed thi...

Lee From the first Chinese Americans who settled in Houston to the present day community of thousands of Chinese Houstonians, megatown Houston has never been so blessed with a group of people so dedicated to success yet so firmly imbued with traditional values and integrity. It is not the diligence nor the struggles that make Chinese Houstonians special; rather, it is the essence of these qualities combined with pride and reverence in their own history and culture. The first Chinese arrived in Houston seeking to build a life for themselves and for their families in a foreign land They sought a life promising much betteroppor- tunities for their children than they had had them- selves. Their first businesses were grocery stores and restaurants—businesses requiring long hours and grueling hard work The children were expected to go to school, study hard and excel in school in order ...

FEBRUARY 198$ Southwest Chinese Journal PAGE 11 What We Know About Cancer and Nutrition By Beverly Jean Gor, M.S., R.D. Health food advocates and peripheral medical personnel have long claimed that there is a rela- tionship between cancer and nutrition. They were partially correct because now the National Academy of Science, the American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute, and the Department of Health and Human Services, after taking a long, hard look at sound scientific research are advocating some dietary changes to prevent cancer I say the health food faddists are only partially correct because their solution is often megadoses of vitamins and minerals with potentially harmful side effects or expensive, extreme non-proven treatments. What the reputable medical community is promoting is sound nutrition with emphasis on these changes: 1) increasingvegetablesandfruitsrich in vitamin C. These include citrus fruits, cantaloupe, straw- berries, potatoes, tomatoes, spinach, c...

Hong Sit, Rev. Lok-Tin Cheung, and others conducting worship. They evolved, in 1974, into an inde- pendent, non-denominational congregation which began meeting at the South Main Baptist Church, which decided on the name Houston Chinese Church, with the guidance of Hong Kong's Rev. Gentle Lee, on his year's Sabbatical, in temporary leadership. In 1975, the group cele- brated the official establishment of the church and the election of deacons. Upon the return of Gentle Lee to Hong Kong in 1976, the Deacon Board invited a missionary from the Philippines, Rev. Franklin Lee, to pastor the church for one year. Due to its burgeoning growth, the meeting place moved to the South Main Baptist Church...

METRO has offered Houston bus riders good service and one of the lowest fares of any urban transit system in the na- tion. Now, as METRO expands to offer a network of local, ex- press and commuter ser- vices, passengers can take advantage of improved ser- vice as well as a major fare simplification. New single zone fare. All local routes will be charged at a flat fare of 55c. No more worry about paying extra to travel between zones— just climb aboard and enjoy the ride. Special "express" fare. "Ex- press" routes originate outside the 610 Loop and travel at least 6 miles nonstop, using freeways and METRO contraflow lanes. The new "express" fare will be 80c per trip, and the routes will include 21 -Northshore, 32-Harwin, 31-Memorial, 41-Garden Villas, and 2-Bellaire (freeway trips only). Adjusted Park & Ride rates.
