Yugoslavia Striving to Become Modern State Days of Foreign Exploitation Doomed Daniel De Luce, Associated Press correspondent who has been awarded the Pulitzer prize for his first-hand re port of the Yugoslav Partisans in 1943 when Yugoslavia's resistance was hailed by the world, sent the .following highly illuminating report from Belgrade a few days ago: BELGRADE]—The age of the* wooden plow is vanishing in Yu goslavia before the onrush of socialized industry. Foreign critics may assert it is impossible for the south Slavs to pull themselves up by their own boostraps, economically speaking. But the fact remains that they are going all-out in the attempt. The five-year plan adopted here last April is proportionate ly more ambitious than any drafted by the Soviet Union. The goals which the federa- ROLLER DERBY IN ARENA.

Likened to Mexico It is taken for granted Yugo slavia will get along without new western capital, but will re ceive important mechanical arfcl technical assistance from Rus sia and allied smaller powers which are already highly indus trialized. Regarding foreign invest ments, this country is in much the same position as Mexico was at the time of the expropriation of oil properties. Considering herself to have been exploited as a semicolonial dependency by wester finance, Yugoslavia has converted for eign holdings to state owner ship. The question of payment is still the subject of varied ne gotiation, but there is no expec tation that foreigners will ever regain control. The whys and wherefores of the five-year plan were careful ly set forth to the National As sembly last spring by Marshall Tito. In trenchant paragraphs, he cited examples to support his charge that old Yugoslavia had been in economic bondage. Cites French Exploitation "The copper ore of the Bor mines was not worked in our country but was exported to France, and we had then to buy the pure copper from the French at very high prices," he said. "The ore contains a consider able quantity of gold and this gold in the copper ore was free ly exported to France and there extracted by distillation. The value of the exported gold equaled the value of the invested capital and the copper ore was obtained for nothing, which meant a gigantic profit for the French capitalists and a gigan tic loss for our peoples. "The Shell and Standard Oil companies, which held the mo nopoly of oil, petroleum and petrol in our country, did their best to keep up the prices, im porting from their own and oth er countries. Not only had they no wish to discover oil springs^ in our country, but they very successfully, through various corrupt ministers of the former regime, and even through the royal family, prevented the ex traction of oil, although the lo cation of oil fields was known." All heavy and most medium industry is now operated by the state. The marshal called this an economy "where production works for the needs of the peo ple, and not for profit." Likening it to the economy of Continued on page 6) The Possibility of a Course in Slovenian at the Ohio State University? Professor Arthur Coleman, Secretary of the American As sociation of Teachers of Slavic and East European Languages, informs us that there may be a possibity of organizing a course in Slovenian for the benefit of students of Slovenian extraction at the Ohio State University. There should be a sufficient number of boys and girls inter ested in such a project. In many American Universities we find regular instructions given in va rious Slav languages, especially in Russian, with proper credits toward a degree in Arts arid Sciences. Of course, we need Slovenian teachers and school texts, which could be supplied w i e e e o o e a i o n among the qualified college graduates. If a course in Slovenian can not be introduced at the OSU this year, we recommend to Slovenian American students the study of Russian. Dean Frederick Heimberger of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University is quite inter ested in the above programs. At this time we wish to urge our high school graduates, and especially many GI boys and girls, to consider entering the colleges and universities this year and every year. We need better educated leaders in our communities. CONVALESCING Mrs. Strazisar has returned to her home at 14902 Thames Ave., following a recent con i n e e n i n e o s i a Friends may visit her.

On the streets and highways too the use and respect of sig nals will help a great deal to maintain safety. The man driving behind you depends on your signal to ad just his course and pace. He is not a mind reader and doesn't have the slightest idea of what you intend to do unless you tell him. The way to give this in formation is with a hand signal. Here are the accepted signals: For a Left Turn— Hand and arm extended horizontally. For a Right Turn—Hand and arm extended upward. Stop or slow—Hand and arm extended downward. Using and obeying signals is important since it permits you to govern your driving in safe ty with the movement of other traffic. Signals give advance knowledge that helps to prevent accidents. Use the hand signals yourself and obey the signals of iellow motorists. given by by ENGLISH SECTION FIRST DANCE OF SEASON You are cordially invited to attend the grand opening of the newly decorated Slovenian Na tional Home, East 65 St. and St. Clair Avenue Saturday eve ning August 23, 1947.
