Our Members Get Various Benefits (Continued From Page 7) dues of those who because of want or just plain negli gence become de 1 i n u e n t. Where else would you be giv en such privilege? It is in the sphere of per sonal interest in the well be ing of your brother that your CFU and the local lodge ren der that service which best personifies true fraternalism. The best example for the ex pression of this virtue is the solicitude for a sick member. What can buy more buoyancy and cheer than the sincere concern of your fellow'lodge members? This Is Fraternalism! We want to emphasize this particular point with an ac tual case in mind. It happened in Cleveland and concerned a member of Lodge 663, American Croatian Pioneers. This well known affiliate publishes a monthly bulletin which is ably edited by. Jay Bee, (John Badovinac), the affable erstwhile C.F.U. Su preme Secretary. In a recent issue he informed the lodge membership of the severe ill ness of one of its affiliates and merely suggested that some token of rememberance would be in order. In a subsequent issue 3. B. happily announced that the afflicted member was literally deluged with cards, letters, flowers, etc. We ourselves re ceive the bulletin and when we read the account of this act of brotherly love we too experienced that welling up of emotion within us. This is, as we've pointed out, but one instance of "real old fashioned fraternalism!" But it is not an isolated in stance, for it is repeated day in and day out wherever a branch of your CFU is domi ciled. This is that phase and facet of your organization which you enjoy, that gift which no money can buy, that benefit which no contract could possibly mandate. Let us all remember that the Croatian Fraternal Union has been practicing this gold en rule for sixty years. Fra ternalism has always been its guiding light! Ambridge Lodge To Meet On Thursday, April 15th Ambridge, Pa.

Our members are urged to pay their dues on time since we decided at our last annual meeting to suspend those who are in arrears in excess of three months. This ruling is strictly adhered to, both for your protection and the pro tection of our Lodge. If you pay your dues by check, please do not make them payable to your secre tary or treasurer, but rather to Lodge 304 CFU. We'll see you all at the meeting, on Thursday, April 15.
