The most visi- ble change will be our return to the tabloid format, which we feel will be more manageable and accessible for our readership,as we strive for a more professional appearance. However, what may really concern readers is the switch to much greater emphasis on the English langu- age section, and a consequent reduction of the Chinese and Vietnamese language sections. Before everyone starts dismissing us as aband- oning those in our city who prefer to read a paper in the native language, we would like to state our case for making this decision.In the recent past, Southwest Chinese Journal, as the only paper in Houston containing...

In 1943, during World War II, Sherman enlisted in the U.S. Navy, serving over two years,after which he was honorably discharged in 1945. Returning to Chicago, he met Dorothy, the num- ber one daughter of the Henry Chan family of 8 children. Sherman and Dorothy were united in marriage in Chicago's Congregational Church. After the wedding, Sherman and Dorothy enjoyed a honeymoon in Galveston, then, settled for Houston for their permanent home. Their super- market, Sing On, at 3905 Cavalcade, has served the surrounding neighborhood for 35 years.

Ph.D. Psychologist On curbing violence A series of recent crimes has provoked once a- gain the question: Why are people violent? Psychologists have been researching this issue for many years and still have not come up with any satisfactory answers. However, some con- sensus has emerged from all the research: (1) human beings are rather instinctively violent; (2) violent behavior can be learned from role models who display violent behavior; and (3) many people who commit violent crimes are un- happy and frustrated human beings. Psychologist CONRAD SORENZ was among those who have studied violent behavior from an etiolog- ical approach and from an evolutionary point of view. His observation of the behavior of many different species of animals led him to believe that violent-aggressive behavior might be a human instinct since it is evidenced in many lower animals. This inst...

Within the last fifteen years,Houston has become a truly international city with Asian Americans from every conceiva- ble background. We should count ourselves as fortunate to have communities of such rich and varied cross-cultural heritages. As our Asian American communities continue to grow and prosper, it becomes apparent there is a need for the sharing of information and sup- port between our Asian ethnic communities. One way that we can increase appreciation & under- standing within our own communities is to be exposed to information concerning other Asian American communities. Therefore, this column has been developed to provide some insights into what is happening in our various c...

COR The Letters of appeal on Page 4 for aid in the construction of a convent in Houston for the Vietnamese Carmelite Sisters are self-explana- tory. Please consider these words seriously. Having encountered the Sisters through our mu- tual participation in the 1981 Asian American Festival, where they made a deep impression on many of us with their spiritedness as well as spirituality, this reporter has the utmost ad- miration for their efforts in Houston. Unlike public perceptions of their order as a cloist- ered one, these Carmelite Sisters have made an enormous contribution to the community through their involvement. Since Sister Van-Lam first came to Houston in 1976, her order ha.s grown from 5 to 35. In response to the needs of the Roman Catholic segment of the rapidly growing Vietnamese com- munity, the Sisters have taught English to the Vietnamese adults and Vietnamese to the chil-...

1 pgg S8 [16] & ife ^ 4H Southwest Chinese Journal September 1-15, 1981 On children's books with A.J., GOR Children's books are a very special field of literature. From these,chiIdren may learn the first joys of reading as their eyes dan- ce over the illustrations, and discover, as educators stress, new la- nds and peoples they probably could not otherwise encounter. Therefore, it is important that these introductory impressions of un- known worlds inform the child with imaginative vision grounded in ac- curacy. In the case of most children's books dealing with Chinese Ameri- cans, however, the predominant impression is grossly misleading. This is unfortunate, for children's responses to actual contact with Chin- ese Americans^are therefore colored by what they read in such books as THE FIVE CHINESE BROTHERS. From this 1936 book still, found in school libraries throughout America, generations of chi'dren have thought of Chinese Americans as having actual bright yellow skin, slit...

She deftly brings to life these individuals and nu- merous others. In so doing she reveals an important though neglected aspect of Chinese American history: that history as seen from the point of view of Chinese Americans them- selves. Her characterizations alone warrant a reading of the book. AT the heart of Kingston's story, though, is the phenomenon of silence and its varied manifestations. Silence can be a weapon: "Worse than the swearing and the nightly screams were your silences when you punished us by not talking. You r...
