AN AMERICAN IN YUGOSLAVIA-
(Continned From Page 7)
America was the gospel
truth. Mother Nature certain
ly outdid herself in this pano
ramic hinterland of Yugosla
via.
Headaches In Zagreb
Back in Zagreb, which they
left Aug. 13, the by now
somewhat exhausted tourists
held their final "group meet
ing" in front of the historic
Hotel Esplanade.
The majority made ar
rangements on the spot for
transportation to their native
villages, there to visit with
relatives, friends and acquain
tances. In many cases, it was
like the return of the prodigal
after years of absence from
the home hearth.
But the writer had to
make his quarters in Za
greb for many pressing rea
sons, not the least of
which was to look after the
interests of those in his
group who spent days try
ing to book earlier French
Lines passage back to
America.
In fact, we could write a
fair-sized book about this
phase of the trip, one which
saw us visiting the Putnik
Agency's Zagreb offices so
often that the employes there
got to be downright chummy
with us.
Only courtesy prevented
them from calling us by our
first name, so frequently did
we visit them before we left
Zagreb for Paris, France,
Sept. 8, 1956.
Diplomacy, Tact, Tips
But of the many problems
we faced following our return
to Zagreb, none could com
pare with the headache of
holding on to our room in the
Hotel Esplanade.
The city was jammed from
stem to stern at that time of
the year with thousands of
visitors from all over the
world out to enjoy Zagreb's
great annual International
Trade Fair and hotel rooms
were worth their weight in
Dinars.
It took some real Amer
ican diplomacy and tact to
maintain our daily disputed
"squatters rights" in the
Esplanade. Nor did the
quaint old American cus
tom of tipping the right
people hurt our cause.
Yet we enjoyed every min
ute of our friendly tiffing
with the Director of the Es
planade, a man who had just
so many rooms on his hands
and well "there was an
old woman who lived in a
shoe ."
Balkans'
The writer saw everything
worth seeing in Zagreb during
his Aug. 30 through Sept. 7,
1956, stay in that "Little Pa
ris of The Balkans" metro
polis.

While it is no longer "Bijeli
(White) Zagreb," what with
its major buildings, institu
tions, etc., begrimed and, in
many cases, neglected, this
city of nearly 500,000 people
is nonetheless the industrial
and economic center of Cro
atia.
Located on the left bank
of the River Sava and nest
ling at the foot of the
wooded Zagrebačka Gora,
Zagreb is the junction for
transportation and other
lifelines which lead from
Central Europe to the Adri
atic Sea Rijeka, Šibenik,
Split and tie in with rail
roads and highways cover
ing Western Europe and
the Near East.
Its railroad station, located
a stone's throw from the Ho
tel Esplanade, is an around
the-clock beehive of activity
and a stage where a hundred
and one poignant dramas are
enacted daily by "seljaci" and
the better off alike.
We visited this station (ko
lodvor) on seven occasions
and talked with people from
all walks of life. Their chief
complaint, as with us in Ame
rica and Canada: The hoiren
dous cost of living!
Zagreb Is Fascinating
But whatever its shortcom
ings, Zagreb is truly a fasci
nating community.
Its "Gornji Grad" (Upper
Town) the ancient settle
ment of Grič was surroun
ded by ramparts and towers
in the Middle Ages, such as
the Kamenita Vrata (Stone
Gate) and the Dverce (Por
tal).
The old streets and ba
roque buildings around its
center, Radić Square with
the Church of St. Mark, re
main almost untouched by
the march of time.
At the foot of the "Gornji
Grad," which we managed to
explore at length, extends the
famous Ilica. More than 3 ki
lometers in length, the Ilica
is lined with excellent shops
of all kinds and traffic here
is extremely heavy during
rush hours.
Zagreb's public parks also
remain in our memories, par
ticularly Zrinjevac, Tuškanac,
with its open air theater and
beautiful villas, and, on the
outskirts, Maksimir with its
Zoo and artificial lake.
Nor will we ever forget the
many hours we spent brows
ing around in the "new cen
ter" of Zagreb, the Square of
The Republic, and its nearby
Market Place.
The Croatian
Together with bro. George
Sankovich, Soifth Chicago,
111., former CFU Supreme
Board Member, we also vis
ited Zagrebačka Gora.
From Mount Sljeme, its
highest summit (1,035 me
ters), we looked down on the
Sava Valley and Zagreb and
cast our eyes in the direction
of the Croatian Zagorje.
Extending behind the hills
of Zagreb, Croatian Zagorje
is lined with hot springs and
health resorts, among them
Stubičke, Krapinske, Tuhelj
ske, Sutinske and Varaždin
ske Toplice.
Less than one hour re
moved from Zagreb is the
valley of the River Sutla
and the town of Klanjec. It
was here that the immortal
Groat bard Antun Mihano
Vić composed, In the early
stages of the 19th Century,
the Croatian Na i o n a 1
Hymn "Lijepa Naša Domo
vino."
A monument here perpetu
ates the memory of this great
poet in the history of the
Croatian people.
And, for the record, the val
ley of the Sutla River is the
birth-place of Yugoslavia's
President Josip (Tito) Broz.
The town, Kumrovec.

Stjepan Gaži On Croatian Immigrants
PITTSBURGH The Za
jedničar's English Section ov
er the period May 23 to Sep
tember 12, 1956, carried the
serialized work "Croatian Im
migration to Allegheny Coun
ty 1882 to 1914" by Mr. Stje
pan Gaži.
It is an authorative doc
umentary history of the
Croatian immigrant life in
one of the larger cosmo
politan areas of these Uni
ted States, gleaned from
many sources into a com
pact treatise.
No important incident has
been ommitted by the author,
Mr. Stjepan Gaži, who pre
sents it entirely in the English
language. Mr. Gaži is a mem
ber of CFU Lodge 20.
The Supreme Board of the
Croatian Fraternal Union at
its September, 1956, semi-an
nual meeting authorized the
printing and publishing of
this work in a booklet form
now comprised of 55 pages.
We recommend it as
good reading and reference
material that should be in
the average C'.F.U. home.
Without question the work
gives credit to Mr. Gaži and
to our forebears for the
a n i a s u n e w i
they made a foothold in a
new land under conditions
strange to them.
The price per copy is one
dollar ($1.00) and by decision
of the Executive Board made
available through the C.F.U.
