"ZAJEDNIČAR" '187 175 Elpct) Yot«» (b) (c) (b) (c) 1 *174 i3i Frank Zornjak, Sec'y. «star„ in \n\n What Convention's By-Laws Committee Recommended For Good Of Organization lt That a By-Law Committee made up of no more than seven (7) delegates-elect be appointed by the Execu tive Board to meet three (3) days before the 1959, Convention. That one (1) delegate-elect of the 1955 By-Law Com mittee be included in the above mentioned committee to serve in the capacity of an advisor. That the Executive Board, together with the Legal Counsellor,»carefully check the English translations against the Croatian, so that there may be no am biguity in phraseology. 4,—That all changes and amendments lo the by-laws of the 9th Convention be corrected grammatically in English and Croatian before being printed. That the By-Laws be written in the simple future or simple present tense, and not in compound or auxi liary "shall" form. The legalistic "shall" is b'est a voided in the by-laws, for example: lt The Supreme President shall be the Chairman of the Convention. The Supreme Vicc-Prcsi dents shall be Vice-Chairmen, who shall assist the Chairman in all proceedings. We believe the following without the legal jar gon, is much better: 1, —»The Supreme President is the Chairman of the Convention. The Supreme Vice-Presidents are the Vice-Chairmen, who assist the Chairman in all proceedings. The latter is simple and direct. We recommend all "shall" and "will' words are to be replaced in the simple present wher ever it can be done without impairment of sense. That wherever the word Union in English and Zajed nica in Croatian appear, the same must be spelled out, such as, Croatian Fraternal Union in English, and Hrvatska Bratska Zajednica in Croatian. That the addresses of all lodges, their officers, etc., be planeographed in letter size (8'_ 11), and sta pled in book form and mailed to every member of the Croatian Fraternal Union. g.— That the minutes of the 1955 Convention be planeo graphed in letter size (8'-j 11) and not printed. A 60savings results in the use of planeographing. 9, That the distribution of all INDIVIDUAL dividends, be, by-or-on Order of the Croatian Fraternal Union Secretary, on-or-to the Croatian Fraternal Union Treasurer, informing the recipient—upon endorsement and presentation to the lodge secretary, the Order will be accepted for current payments, cash, reserve credit, and/or lien obligations. II, That one page of the English Section of the Zajedni čar be properly captioned and arranged for Sports activities only, instead of having sports events scat tered all over the pages. 11,— That proper space, with the caption ".Juniors in Ac tion" or a better selection of a caption by the Editor. be established to cover activities of sports, culture and' education. 12. Reports of all officers and by-law drafts in English and Croatian must be mailed to all delegates thirty (30) days before the convention date. 13. That these recommendations be printed in the by laws as per sample submitted to Brother Stephen F. Brkich (English Editor of the Zajedničar). 11. That, wherever the word one-fifth (1/5) appears in the new disability certificates in certain cases of dis ability, the Supreme Board, in cooperation with the Medical Advisor and Actuary, be empowered to a mend, if possible, the above mentioned to comply with the old table of disability payments. I jr. The By-Law Committee wishes to compliment and commend all Supreme Board members and all con cerned who have done a splendid job in streamlining the new By-Laws. We sincerely believe that "Fra ternal Progress" demands attention, and the new By-Laws are an example to our membership. McKeesport Mans Anniversary Fete McKeesport, Pa. C.F.U. Lodge 25 "Hrvatski Sokol" wishes to announce to its members and all lodges of McKeesport and vicinity that it will celebrate the 60th An niversary of its founding on Sunday, October 23, in the Croatian School Hall, Shaw Avenue.
