13 ^ 4$. Southwest Chinese Journal ■v ~ July 1980 A NIGHT FOR LOVERS by OLAN The seventh night of the seventh month in China is the night for lovers. On this night two stars that are usually separated by the Silk River (Milky Way to Westerners) during the rest of the year cross each other. This year the seventh night of the seventh month falls on August 17, 1980. The agrarian Chinese attach much inportance to the stars. Their movements relate intimately to the seasons of the year, and to precipitation and tempera- tures all of which are important to planting and har- vesting. The people toil the year round. Men work in the fields; women at home and sometimes also in the field. Boys are sent to tend cattle and girls are taught to weave cloth needed by the whole family. A cattle boy and a weaving girl have become symbols of the hard working Chinese. They are also the name of the two stars. Legend tells the story of a sad romance. Many, many years ago in the heavenly court of the Jade ...

July 1980 S? rfe ^ m Southwest Chinese Journal 14 1900 The census shows forty-three Chinese in Harris County, the peak for the period 1880-1930. 1910 The census shows only eleven Chinese in Harris County, with one laundry and one restaurant, the JIM WING. This sharp decline actually came in the first three years of the decade. 1920 I he census shows forty-nine Chinese in Harris County but this figure is misleading since there were over thirty-five "Pershing Chinese" stationed at Ellington Field and/or Camp Logan. The 1922 City Directory shows twelve Chinese in Houston, with one laundry and three restaurants, two JIM WING locations and the PEKIN. In 1923, Mr. and Mrs. (FUN NG SHEE) JOE AH SHEM settled in Houston with their son, MON KING, born in China. They had the first six Chinese born in Houston; LUCY JOE SHEM (LEE), 1924; MON JUNE JOE SHEM, 1926, the first boy; LILY JOE SHEM (BERA), 1929; MON GUN JOE SHAM, 1931; and the first twins, MON DOCK and MON FOO JOE SHEM, 1933. 1925 The C...

15 S? ^ 4H Southwest Chinese Journal July 1980 Ju THE HISTORY OF THE CHINESE IN HOUSTON * by Dr. Edward C. M. Chen and Mrs. Daisy Chan Gee This is the centennial year for the Chinese in Houston. In 1880, th census reported seven Chinese living in Harris County. Who were these people and the others that followed? What were their experiences and accomplishments? We can not answer these questions be- cause at present, very little has been written and ac- curately documented on the Chinese in Houston. How- ever with the help of many Chinese Houstonians a project is underway to gather and record our history. The 1980 census is likely to show that the Chinese Community is entering a new era, with more than 50% of the Chinese in Texas and more than 4% of the Chinese in the USA residing in Houston. For the first time, the Chinese population in Houston will exceed the total population of Houston in 1880. It is especially important to learn the lessons of the past so that the same mistakes wi...

July 1980 & ^ ill Southwest Chinese Journal 18 SHERIFF LEE (continued) Young Harry quickly became manager of the new restaurant, then president of the local chapter of the Louisiana Restaurant Association. As an officer of the group, he kept watch over the progress of a minimum wage bill and the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The job brought him into contact with Hale Boggs, who rekindled his fascination for public life. "Somebody would come to him with some problem in the district and Hale would just pick up the phone and fix it. It would be done. That amazed me," says Lee. At the same time, Boggs was fascinated by Lee, Mrs. Boggs recalls. He made Lee a protege, incorpor- ating him into that close network of advisors and friends - others included Billy Connick and Owen "Pip" Brennan - who kept tabs on life in the district for the Congressman. At the restaurant, meanwhile, it may have been understood Harry was preparing to leave. "I think they had always been talking about it in gene...

19 Southwest Chinese Journal July 1980 SHERIFF HARRY LEE of New Orleans Many Chinese in Houston are already well acquaint- ed with the reputation for political power and finan- cial success that surrounds HARRY LEE of Metairie, Louisiana. Many have probably eaten at his family's im- pressive and imposing House of Lee Restaurant lo- cated outside New Orleans in Metairie. However few know of the many achievements, accomplishments, awards and honors earned, or of the career twists taken by this remarkable man. His four page resume tells us that he was born in New Orleans on August 27, 1932. He married LAI BEET WOO (the sister of Mrs. DONALD (LAI JEAN) LEE of Houston) and they have a thirteen year old daughter, CYNTHIA MICHELLE. In this past decadc we see that he has gone from practicing attorney, to United States Magistrate, to Jefferson Parish attorney, to his present position as newly elected Sheriff of Jefferson Parish.

July 1980 & & Southwest Chinese Journal 20 ASIAN AFFAIRS UNIT OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY The Asian Affiars Unit was established as part of the Democratic National Committee in 1976. It serves as a link between the Administration and the Asian/Pacific Americans as they are being re- cognized as a viable part of the American political process for the first time. Since 1976, the Unit has worked toward the goal of activating Asian/Pacific Americans to par- ticiapte in the Democratic Party and the political process. According to Esther G. Kee, the Unit's National Coordinator, this goal has been met through voter registration efforts and community outreach. "Years ago our community was aloof, but we have reached out to them, and with our encouragement, more and I leooOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOCJOOOUUBUBBBIBM more Asian Americans are becoming actively in- volved in the political process - registering to vote, learning about politics, and even running or office!"

21 4& Southwest Chinese Journal July 1980 REFLECTIONS by WILLIAM DER BING Six months of 1980 has already gone by. In those six months, much activity has taken place with many people participating in various civic, cultural and charitable endeavors. The Vietnamese Community has shown great courage, initiative and patience since their relocation to the greater Houston area. The Chinese Baptist Church has been collecting clothing, furnishings and food items for the refugees. The WMU of that church has participated in Houston's first Asian-American Festival part of the proceeds ear- marked for the refugees. Some family organizations have taken it on their own to help find meaningful jobs for the refugees. The Organization of Chinese Americans, The National Association of Chinese Ameri- cans, the Houston YMCA and the Houston Community Col- lege joined hands in providing Asian tutors to teach English to the Vietnamese, Cambodians, Laotians and Hmongs.

JOYCE FAN By June Dove Leong A The June 1980 edition of the Houston Baptist University News carried the happy story that the Student Association had awarded Dr. Joyce Fan the Teacher of the Year title. Many Chinese students have had the advantage of her excellent and inspirational qualities as a teacher, and because of this guiding light have gone on to successful careers. When Houston Baptist University opened in 1963 Dr. Fan was named chairman of the Department of Chemistry, a position she has held since that time. She currently serves on the Medical Professions Advisory and Pre-Pro- fessional Programs Committees. Dr. Fan received her undergraduate degree in chem- istry and physics from Wheaton College where she grad- uated magna cum laude. She earned her graduate degrees from the State University of Iowa.

23 i# Southwest Chinese Journal July 1980 BILL and KIM WOO June By Dove Leong From throughout the nation, hundreds of VIPs of Chinese ancestry convened in Houston at the Hyatt Regency on May 24 and 25 for the Second Annual Confab of the Association of Concerned Chinese Professionals. Outstand- ing in leadership was Bill Woo, representing Houston as President of the Association of Chinese Organizations. He presented a History of Chinese in America. According to Bill Woo, the first Chinese, whose name was Pang Hua Wing Chung, came to the United States in 1784 arriving in New York - almost 200 years ago.
