The scene is all set! The curtain is ready to go up! The audience is waiting expectantly a hush falls on the crowd, and then you hear the melodious strains of music by the Elias Tamburitza Serenaders. When and where will all this take place? Why, at the 60th Anniversary Celebration of the or ganization of the Croatian Fraternal Union, which is being sponsored by the Wisconsin Council of CFU Lodges, on Milwaukee and they are Sunday, October 24th, at 3 PM.

Zeidler, Mayor of the City of Milwaukee, or his representa tive, will be on hand to greet the audience. Several other items of interest, which will be announced in the future issues of the Zajedničar, will also be presented during the program. And last, but certainly not least, will be the ap pearance of our own broth er Martin Krasich, Pitts burgh, Treasurer of the CFU who will be the guest speaker, and whom we are sure will have a message of great importance to all in attendance. After the program, a deli cious home-style supper will I? served in the dining room |t .a nominal fee. The cook in charge will be none other than Bea Karlovich, who is well known in Milwaukee and West Allis circles for her ca tering ability.

Sheboygan Lodge Back At the meeting of the Wis consin Council of CFU Lod ges held Sunday, September 26th, at Karlovich Hall in Milwaukee, the main topic of discussion was the completion of the plans for the 60th An niversary Celebration men tioned above. Of interest to all the rep resentatives present was the fact that "Sloboda" Lodge 582 of Sheboygan has again joined the Coun cil and we take great plea sure in welcoming this Lodge back to our fold. It would indeed be an hon or if the remaining C. F. U. Lodges in Milwaukee, West Allis, Racine and Kenosha would follow in Sheboygan's footsteps and join this great organization. Prep For 1955 Tourney At this meeting plans were also formulated for the com ing Fourth Annual Wisconsin State CFU Bowling Tourna ment to be held in April, 1955. Hosts for this tournament is the "Vanguard" Lodge of Convention City Lodge In Funfest ready hard at work to make this is a successful tourna ment.

Philadelphia, Pa. Plans have been completed for the social to be held by the mem bers of "Jadransko More" Lodge 144 on Saturday, Octo ber 30, in honor of the 60th Anniversary of the Croatian Fraternal Union of America.

Plenty of refreshments will also abound that -night to make this fete all the more enjoyable. By now, virtually every in terested reader of the Zajed ničar knows that Philadelphia will play host in 1955 to the Croatian Fraternal Union's 9th National Quadrennial Convention and many of us locally are looking forward with eagerness to that gath ering. And the first stop should be our Diamond* Jubilt e Dance on Saturday, October 30th. Come out if at all possible that night and we'll return the favor in kind when your Lodge holds an affair. Bring your family and friends along and enjoy yourselves. Action Plus For West Coast Choir Los Angeles, Calif. This has indeed been a "Year of Action!" for the members of the Croatian Chorus "Sla vulj," one of America's fore most choral groups. Only recently, September 12 to be exact, the choristers participated in the gigantic public salute to the 60th An niversary of the Croatian Fraternal Union, which was held under the auspices of the Society's Central Committee of Southern California Lod ges. On Saturday, October 23, "Slavulj" is slated to appear on the famed Philharmonic Auditorium Stage for the United Nations Festival, at which time the singers will represent Yugoslavia. It will be a repeat performance for the group, as we appeared in a similar capacity several years ago. And then on to November 14 for our 6th Anniversary Concert, Dinner and Dance at the Sons of Herman Hall. Please keep this date open, folks, and get set now for a tremendous celebration o n November 14. Mary M. Pickard, Pub.

To say that our Croatian Fraternal Union is 60 years old this year, hav ing been organized in 1894, Would not be saying anything new to anyone who has been reading the Zajedničar. Every issue deals with several ob servances all over the coun try. Many very successful birth day parties have already been held. One of these was in our own vicinity, in South Chica go, where for the first time in their history all the nine Lodges got together and did what they, and the Croatian Fraternal Union as a whole, can be justly proud of. Now, what about us in Chicago? Are we going to have that birthday party too? Many people are asking, be cause it is getting rather late in the year. The answer is in the affirmative, of course. It so happens that the Pil sen Park has been ours for the first Sunday in December for many years, and so this year, too, our 60th Anniver sary Celebration of the Cro atian Fraternal Union will take place at the Pilsen Park Pavilion on Sunday, Decem ber 5th. The Sloboda Tamburica and Al Peters orchestras have al ready been engaged. This should please the young and the old, but more about this and many other4 things later. Hope you read carefully your Zajedničar between now and Sunday, December 5. Johnstown Ready For Fall Frolics Johnstown, Pa. On Sun day, October 17, an all-day program beginning at 2:00 PM will be staged. Our CFU Lodge 5' mem bers will play host to all the Lodges and Clubs in Cambria County, and candidates for public office will be heard as both political parties will be well represented at the event. Following the meeting a so cial hour will be held and be climaxed by a grape dance. In fact, a real old fashioned affair is being arranged for your pleasure. The Veselo Selo Tamburit zans have been booked for the occasion, and the hall will be decorated with fall foliage. On Sunday. October 31st, e A n n u a a s u e a e Dance will be held in the Hall. Prizes for the best costumes will be given and other sur prises are in store for all our guests. Frank So bdi teh Cleveland's "St. Joseph" Lodge 99 In November 14 Salute To 55th Milestone Society's Supreme Treasurer Scheduled To Deliver Main Address During Fiesta Stephen Shimits, President, Lodge 99 Cleveland, Ohio The 55th Anniversary of "St. Jo seph" Lodge 99 of the Croatian Fraternal Union will be celebrated in style on Sunday, November 14, 1954. Cleveland's spacious Slovenian National Home, 6417 St. Clair Avenue, has been selected as the most adequate place to house the festivities, which will include everything from an elaborate afternoon Banquet and Program to an eveniftg Anniversary Dance. Also planned is a Special Mass at St. Paul's Croatian Catholic Church, East 40th and St. Clair, in memory of our departed brothers and sisters. Time, details later. The Banquet is to start at 1:30 PM sharp, with the menu calling for a sumptuous Turkey Dinner. Dinner music will be furnished by the "Pla vi Mesec" Tamburitza Orches tra, one of the best in the business. Our guest of honor and principal speaker will l»e Martin Krasich, Pittsburgh Supreme Treasurer of tli« Croatian Fraternal Union. We have been definitely assured that. bro.

Two Grand Old Timers To be honored the same clay will be the two surviving Charter Members of "St. Jo seph" Lodge 99, the venerable and kindly bros. Thomas Kri vacic and Matthew Braidech. Vital Datum- Worth Knowing By Joseph Bella Supreme Secretary Pittsburgh, Pa. For quite some time now, this Of fice has been pondering over the possibility of starting a column in our Official Organ, whereby we would have a weekly column of questions and answers which would be of benefit not only to all our Lodge Secretaries, but to the entire membership as well. We also received sugges tions along these lines from several of our Lodge Secreta ries, which is all the more reason why we felt that such a column should be started as soon as possible. Therefore, beginning with this issue, we shall endeavor to single out the most impor tant questions or problems re ceived from our Lodges every week, and shall submit an swers to same to the best of our knowledge and ability. In recent weeks, one of the most important problems of our Lodges has been the mat ter of suspending, or placing on reserve, those members who are in arrears with their dues payments, hence, our first question: The Matter Of Reserve Question: When does a Lodge receive one month cre dit, and when the 3 months or $10.00. Answer: A Lodge re ceives only 1 month credit for a suspended member when such member does not have an accumulated reserve on his certificate. A Lodge re ceives the 3 month, or $10.00 credit when the member has accumulated a reserve on his certificate. NOTE: A member ac cumulates a reserve on his certificate after 3 full years of membership on the Whole Life, 20 Payment Life and Endowment at 70 certificates, and after 2 full years of mem bership on the 20 Year En dowment certificate. Why Form Must Be Used Question: In suspending members, who have a reserve value, why does the reserve form have to be used? Answer: To begin with, members who have a reserve value cannot be suspended, as such members must be placed on reserve by the Lodge Sec retary. (Use Form 27 Rev, Here are two men, in the twilight of life, who through the decades gave of their all for the good of Lodge 99 and the Croatian Fraternal Union. Many have been their unsung personal sacrifices in the in terests of their Lodge and the welfare of their Society. Neither dreamed years a go that either would live see the Croatian Fraternal Union today rank as a mul ti-million dollar organiza tion and rule as the twenty fourth largest fraternal on the North American Conti nent And yet both, each in his own way, often in a mutual manner, played a great part ill helping the Society attain its present stature in this ever changing world. We can never repay either in full for their faith in the Society, but we can let both know how we feel about them during our 55th Anniversary Celebration on Sunday, No vember 14. for this purpose). For sus pended members, who have no reserve value, use Foim 6 A Rev. From time to time, we shall dwell on the proper use of the various forms and applica tions which are in effect at the present time. We shall also welcome any s u e s i o n s o o e n from our Lodge Officers te* garding this new question: and answer column from the fice of the Supreme Secretary1 (To be eontinued) Will Raise Roof Kenwood, W. Va. Enter tainment of the first magni tude will mark the Annual Junior Order Nest 60 Dance to be held Saturday evening, October 16, in Benwood's Blue Ribbon Hall, Main St. Furnishing the dance mu sic will be the celebrated "Slo boda" Tamburitza Orchestra, East Pittsburgh, Pa., which made a great hit here last Summer when the local Lod ges of the Society staged an outing in honor of its 60th Anniversary Year. Also scheduled to appear during our program on Octo ber 16 are the "Croatian An drews Sisters", namely, the Misses Lucille, Barbara and Antonia Stipetic and Neven ka Usmijani, and the recent ly organized Ohio Valley Ko lo Group, Henry Carney di recting. The festivities will get un der way at 7:30 PM and last until midnight. Plenty of re freshments of all kinds will abound and everyone is invi ted to attend. John Baron, Mgr. Fontanans Shape Fall Dance Plans Fontana, Calif. Original ly slated for Sunday, Octo ber 24, the Harvest Dance of CFU Lodge 959 will now take place on Saturday, October 23, instead.
