The extension of the official prize list and additional
to that published in the May 26,1954 issue of the Zajedničar
is- made possible by a reduction in tournament operation
costs payable out of the Tenpin Tournament Expense Fees.
It is toward this fund that each participant in the Detroit
classic paid $.60. The payment of to-day's listed awards
of $540.00 brings to $584.70 paid from the Tournament Fee
Fund in prizes instead of tournament expenses. Said recom
mendation by the Advisory Council was approved by the
C.F.U. Executive Board.

CFU's New Film
Is Worth Showing
Pittsburgh, Pa. Central
Committees and Lodges plan
ning events in
Anniversary Jubilee of the
Society have at their discre
tion the use of the film,
"This Is Your Croatian Fra
ternal Union!"
The film was shown this
past spring and early summer
in various sectors of the coun
try. It is still available to such
Central Committees and Lod
ges as will make application.
The picture and the narra
tion are on one single film
which simplifies the showing.
Experience has shown that a
Bell-Howell or a R.C.A. pro
jector give the most satisfac
tory results. Also because of
the film cost through the va
rious production stages, we
strongly recommend that the
users employ a licensed oper
ator. Just anyone will not do.
Once shown we ask that
the committee return the film
to the C.F.U. Sports-Educa
tional Department via first
class mail—special delivery
and insured for one., thousand
dollars ($1000.00).
The film itself is of the
16mm variety and we instruct
those contemplating the
showing of the film, that they
will have to rent or engage a
projector in their own locali
ty. This because the Croatian
Fraternal Union neither has
a projector nor has it been
found advisable to be ship
ping a machine around the
country. The rental costs are
not prohibitive, in fact the
film is much harder to re
place, if at all.

Through the courtesy of Mr. Myron Wilson, President
of the Cleveland Baseball Corporation, we are preparing to
permit thousands of children to see the Cleveland Indians
play ball at the Stadium in Cleveland this season.
I have been requested to contact you upon the receipt
of your request. This in reference to having your organiza
tion and its chapters furnishing transportation and coun
sellors, for as many boys and girls of elementary and junior
high school ages, as you would care to bring from your dis
trict or chapter. All we request is that you furnish transpor
tation for your children, and our experience has bećn that
one (1) counsellor to every 20 children works out fine. If
by auto caravan, the operator will serve as a counsellor for
the car group. Private parking lot is available next to the
I Stadium.
I There will be no admission charge. You and your
group will be the guests of our host, the Cleveland Indians.
I The schedule included herein portrays the games that
you may attend as guests. A post-card will be sufficient as
to the date you select. Also please let me know the approxi
mate number of children you will bring. I will meet you at
Gate E of the Stadium. Gates open at 12:30 P.M.
be there before game time—2:00 P.M.
Games so allocated are as follows:
July 8 (Thurs) Baltimore
July 29 (Thurs) Boston
July 31 (Sat.) Washington
August 5 (Thurs.) New York
August 7 (Sat.) Philadelphia
August 14 (Sat.) Baltimore
August 18 (Wednesday) Detroit
August 19 (Thurs.) Detroit
September 9 (Thurs.) Philadelphia
September 11 (Sat.) Boston
September 22 (Wed.) Chicago
September 24 (Fri.) Detroit
September 25 (Sat.) Detroit
If in doubt as to cancellation of the game due to weather
conditions we advise that you call the Stadium, TOwer
1-1200.
If your date, or dates, are rained out, call me at MAin
1-1270, line 426, before game time, and a new date will be
set. Sometimes the official schedule is changed and it is
very possible that the date you selected, long in advance, may
be changed to a night game. Kindly watch the newspapers
and listen to radio commentators.

Note: The above invitation speaks for itself and in
metropolitan Cleveland, where we have no less than eight
Nests, advantage should be taken of this good offer. We
urge parents to bring the children in closer proximity of the
Nest to which the Junior is affiliated. Lodges which have
elected sports directors will find this a field in which they
can more extensively use their potentiality as an individual.
To case the work of our Cleveland Nest Managers we
list them here in the hope that parents will help in corraling
a CFU Junior group from their respective Nest.
The Nest Managers are: Nest 55, Anna Rescic Nest

Fuduric Nest 191, Josephine Bolek Nest 373, Barbara
