Brother Vukelich, Croatian Section Editor, was dele gated to attend the 20th Anniversary of singing society "Slavulj" in Cleveland, Ohio, on September 2, 1956, at their expanse. Brother Mandich made the following report on his stay in Chicago on July 3-4: Immediately on arrival in Chicago, I learned that I was to meet Miss Irene Gagaoudaki, Licensing Representative of the Department of Public Welfare, State of Illinois at 3:30 P.M. Having sufficient time at my disposal, I visited our Actuary, Mr. Harley N. Bruce, and his son in their of fices on the outskirts of the city of Chicago. We discussed various matters which come up daily in connection with our new CSO tables of rates in both departments. In extensive conversation with Miss Gagaoudaki, I also learned that the Department of Public Welfare found ob jection with the statement made by our member of the Supreme Board, Sister Niksic, with reference to children's homes in the state of Illinois, as reported in the Minutes of the Supreme Board of last March. I gave my own explana tion of the case, and believe that it was settled to the satis faction of the Welfare Department. The same evening, I attended the first joint meeting of the members of Lodges Nos. 39 and 290, at which new officers were elected for the balance of the year, and the number and name of the lodge decided upon. In behalf of the Executive Board, I expressed satisfaction at the con solidation of the two lodges, stressing that it was entirely indicative of the spirit of true and sincere fraternal co operation among the members of South Chicago, so nicely evidenced during the current campaign for new member ship. I congratulated the old and reliable officers who led these lodges through a great many years, and extended my best wishes for success to the new lodge officers to be elect ed at that meeting. I took leave before the elections, for I had promised to attend the regular meeting of the Children's Home Board at Des Plaines that evening. I arrived at Des Plaines at 10:00 p.m. The Children's Home Board and Superintendent had a meeting with rep resentatives of the local school board, with which an agree ment was arrived at earlier for rental of certain buildings on the Children's Home grounds which are not being used, for classrooms. A new school building is under construction, but will not be completed until next February. Details of the agreement will be submitted to us when ready and ap proved by the school board. The next day, at the invitation of the Children's Home Board, I attended the annual picnic on the grounds of the Children's Home. Despite the fact that the picnic was be ing held on a weekday, a Wednesday, the response of the membership and friends was satisfactory. During the entire afternoon spent with our member ship, I was met with none but the kindest words of praise of the Croatian Fraternal Union, as well as the harmonious and successful efforts of the Administration. Even though there is some derogatory writing being done in some Croatian newspapers concerning our current membership campaign, on the grounds" of the Children's Home, I did not hear one single word of objection or criti cism from neither our membership, nor other visitors, but only words of praise and encouragement for the continu ation of our work in the present manner. A statement of expenses for my trip and stay in Chi cago and vicinity on business of the Children's Home, a mount to $150.60, which will be paid from the Children's Home Funfl. The Executive Board decided to print 1,500 copies (book form) of the Ninth Convention minutes. Brother Ovcarich, Secretary of the Sick Benefit De partment, presented to the Board the following cases: Brother Joseph Crnarich, member of Lodge 780, sub mitted a letter to the Board pertaining to his disability ben efits. Brother Ovcarich explains that he was paid according to section 288 of the old By-Laws and that he is not entitled to further benefits. The Board instructed the Supreme Med ical Director to write to brother Crnarich and explain the matter. Lodge 84 Brother Ivan Maričić, cert. B-495, under went an operation before the merger of the Croatian Broth erhood with the C.F.U. even though he did not submit his claim until after the merger, the Board approved the pay *ment of said operation. Brother Frank Braidic, Sports Director, presented to the Board the following reports: The Duquesne University reinbursed the amount of $25.57 commission of Nationality Festival tickets. Northern California Central Committee submitted a letter pertaining to expenses of conducting the Bowling Tournament. Advisory Council recommends that the a mounts of $96.00 is given to California and Montana for tournament expenses. Further the Advisory Council re commends that the amount of $20.00 is to be paid for pic tures of the Southern California Tournament. The Board considers said recommendation and approves the payments of same. There being no further business to transact the Supreme President, brother Mandich, adjourned the meeting at 12:30 P.M. The Croatian Fraternal Union is the largest organiza tion of its kind on earth. John Ovcarich, Secretary Sick Benefit Dep't. It's your Croatian Fra ternal Union. Build, boost it wherever you go.
