City k We also carry— A S I U O S Page !1 1 \n\n December 4, 1957 Pittsburgh's "United We Sing" Festival Is Most Colorful Gathering Of Kind In America (Continued from Page 8) choirs develop many un expected program possibili ties. And "fanB," as it were, ga ther from far and near, not only to hear the carolers, but to "get into the act" them selves when Dr. Bidwell leads the Community Singing. Costumed choirs seated everywhere about the audi torium create a kaleidosco pic pageant in themselves. But the "Pageant of the Trees" with its hundred Her itage Representatives bearing their symbolical offerings one by one across the stage adds poignant heart-appeal to the spectacle. In recent years Exchange Students from several of Pittsburgh's colleges, togeth er with other visitors from far off lands, give global ex tension to the Festival's mes sage. Twenty-Four Groups The roster of Heritage Songs in this year's program will include: Austrian Bulgarian Chi nese Croatian French Ger man Greek Irish Italian Latin Lithuanian Magyar Negro Polish Portugese Russian Scottish Serbian Slovak Slovenian Spanish Syrian Ukrainian Welsh. Lodge (6 "Saints" To March In December 15 YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio At the last meeting of "St. George" CFU Lodge 66 it was decided by the membership that the next regular and an fllial meetings be held Sun day, December 15, at the Shoatian Home, 1012 W. Fed Wal St., promptly at 1 p.m. "With the adjournment of thč regular meeting the an nual meeting will be called to I order and officers will be elected for 1958. e e s e n s w i e served after both meetings have been adjourned. The presence of all mem bers is important. N. J. Srnec. Sec'v. Also, this year, for the first time in the Festival's history, an ancient Japanese New Year's melody will be heard. A small choir of visiting Ja panese residents will be ac companied upon two tradi tional stringed instruments ("Kotos") by accomplished musicians. Peace And Goodwill "United We Sing," truly known as "Pittsburghers' Gift to Pittsburgh," is sustained not only by the dedicated pre paration and sacrifice of ev eryone concerned, but by the consistently appreciative en thusiasm of the public. So, it was not surpris ing when the Bicentennial Committee asked the Fes tival to become one of the opening and closing events of the great 1968-1959 cel ebration. In spite of the world's cur rent suffering, strain, and tension, a deeply human in stitution such as "United We Sing" dramatically demon strates the power of love and brotherhood in our American and that, of course, is because Christmas promises Peace and Goodwill towards men, everywhere.

American Cowboys Are Popular With Israelis (Continued Prom Page 8) grims climbed the steep steps of Mount Zion to 'join in thanks to the Almighty. Seventy candles were lighted in remembrance of the ancient Succot custom of offering seventy sacrifi ces for peace among the na tions of the earth. And the Israeli landscape was dotted with the tradition al open-roofed green-foliaged booths marking the seven day festival. Still Depend On U.S.A. But no one knows better than the Israelis how far they have yet to go. They still depend to extent on the U. S. grants-in-aid and gifts from the world Jewry to keep their economy strong. They import more than they export. And the Middle East is far from calm. Yet the Israelis are confi dent. Perhaps the most inci sive estimate of Israel's po tential was given voice by an elderly farmer near Jaffa to a visitor from California. Resting on a rock, he scanned the same horizon that Abraham may have seen 4,000 years ago. The land was green now and neat little farms formed an intricate patchwork as far as the eye could see. On a nearby road, a jeep with some sturdy-looking oil workers in it rattled by. "We're like your Ma rines," he said, with a twin klein his eyes. "That which is difficult we do immedi ately. The impossible will take us a little longer." He meant it, too. Hoosiers Sweeper To Be Run Off Feb. EAST CHICAGO, Ind.

C— CANDID FORWARD Watsonville, Calif., Members Floor Visitor From Society's Home Office Already Jam Packed Activities Agenda Not To Satisfaction Of Unusual (iroup (Continued From Page 9) that the chief pur(ose in getting together ,as to get some ideas or pointers on what to do to make the lodge and nest more active. From their self-criticism we assumed that this was one of the CFU's most inactive, unproductive units. LittJe by little we gleaned however that this colony was in truth one of the most lively ia the whole CFU realm. Never A Dull Moment They bemoaned the scarci ty of fraternal endeavors and yet here is just a sample list ing of some doings on tap for the Watsonville scene: A kolo group which prac tices twice a month Octobcr 27 a Hallow'een party for the nest members December 1, hosting the Northern Califor nia Central Committee meet ing December 8, annual Christmas party for the Jun iors (Most of our juniors are fortunate to have just the Xmas treat but the Watson ville youngsters have a trix or treat nite fete.) January 18, annual program of the Central Committee staged this coming year in Watson ville and, sometime in Feb ruary the annual lodge ban quet. On top of this there is the weekly bowling activity. Yes indeed, quite a sche dule for an "inactive unit." How fortunate would our Society be were some of the active ones to emulate "do nothing Watsonville". This informal, impromptu and most genial "conference" at the Scurich residence was so absorbing tJt^at it lasted in to early morning. We believe it was past 3 AM before it finally broke up and we but regret that these fine people had to go to work in a few hours. We honestly cannot recall^a more engross ing tinie. O*«* oitfy hope is that our hosts found us at least a fraction as interesting and enjoyable as we did them. Future Safe, Sound The local lodge in particu lar and the Society in general are fortunate in the fact that the Scurich home is ever and always at the disposal of the membership. It is the acknowledged nerve center, the home away from home, where everything that is of CFU interest is dis cussed and evaluated. The wonder of it all is that these two ever so busy people find time and possess the in clination to drop personal and gainful pursuits to devote time, effort and yes even ma terial assistance to the cause of fraternalism. The Society need harbor no fears for its present or future as long as it has such staunch members. Sister Scurich, accompanied by a friend, whose name un fortunately escapes us, drove us to San Francisco airport for our date with an east bound flight. We drove past some heav ily burdened apple orchards a sight of nature at its grandest and most prolific self. We were given a bag of the delicious fruit from the Scurich scetor. Unique Burial Plot On the outskirts of the town we passed by the ccmc tery. A portion of this presen- rade of miniature chapels. Ac tually these were imposing (and very expensive) burial vaults of white marble. Most of them contained or had provision for future ac commodation of entire fam ily groups. The thing that is unique a bout this unusual sight is the fact that each and every structure prominently bears a Croat name and place of origin of the interred. Dalma tia is literally and liberally here transplanted. The cemetery is by no means exclusively Slav for it is the municipal burial ground we believe. The de ceased of other nationali ties or "American" stock are buried as is the normal custom. It would seem that only our people go In for this opulent display. We moved on northward over California's famous free ways and saw this fabulous land at close range for the first time. It is all that is said or sung about it. Sister Scurich deposited us safe and sound at the airport and after an all too short in terval had to depart for the long return trip home. Thank You, Kindly As we awaited our plane we couldn't help but mentally relive this entire California adventure. Everyone we had met treated us as more than a friend. We experienced the truest of fraternal treat ments. We want to again pub licly thank one and all for their every gesture, their every act in our behalf. Having partaken of the sincere and unaffected hos pitality of many we can but humbly hope that someday we may be ac corded the privilege of re ciprocating. We've sipped of the wine of true fraternalism and found it strong and virile. California is a bastion of CFU consciousness. It has, we know, plenty of company and since that is so our Society rests on a sound foundation. (Conclusion) Whiting Members Will Get Acquainted Dec. 11 WHITING, Ind.
