Eighth Annual Canadian Tourney Hits
Spot With Society's Junior Director
Fraternalists Across Border Deserving
Of Highest Praise For Friendly Spirit
By Michael firaslia, Junior Order Director
Pittsburgh, Pa. In reviewing the 8th Annual CFU
Five Pin Tournament held in Toronto. Ont. April 23 and 24,
I want to utilize a very apt expression "dobar je naš na
rod." It was a distinct pleasure and honor to be amongst
our Canadian members.
The warmth of their fraternal welcome is unsurpassed.
As the official representative from the home office I was
treated to every dignity and^
consideration while on a per-
self at the scene of the tour
Brother Bezic, a very
young man, was a busy per

him were D'Arey Misetic,
chairman, a youngster of just
20 years Tony Filipovich,
treasurer, who looked even
younger John Manestar,
vice-chairman and Joe Si
mac, recording secretary.
This coterie of youthful
leaders was a constant source
of wonderment ,to me for it

The climax and grand fi

of course the banquet and

The banquet itself, the pre

patterns of all such affairs.

Before concluding I want
to congratulate the tourna

our five lodges in Toronto for
their display of harmony.
I have but one regret and
that is that only one lodge
outside of Toronto was rep

Many a life insurance"
salesman has made a call
on new parents after read
ing the birth announce
ments in the newspaper,,
only to find that the new
father has already taken,
out insurance on the newc
baby or else has said "NO"
to every agent who called.
Here's an idea! In the
local library, review the
birth announcements of
five or six years ago. Then
check with the city direc
tory to see if the parents
of the baby are still living
in your city.
Call on them! Perhaps
they would like to have a

Despite all the work al

of those paying the S. S.
tax know what their Social
Security will do for them
or their families if they die.
It's still the best approach
to a family sale because it
fixes the prospect's atten
tion on a problem that on
ly you can solve for him.
