To complete construction of our Home we will need the financial help and co operation of everyone in the area, so plan to join us for this event. Remember, all proceeds will go into the Building Fund.' OR MANY YEARS there have been articles and edi torials written, and countless sincere words uttered, re garding the necessity of the establishment of a sound :np. Croatian Fraternal Union Scholarship Fund from which! Peter Drazich, Treas. aid could be extended to deserving member-students 23jwomens, rolled in American or Canadian colleges and universities. The Delegates to the Society's 9th Nat'l Quadrennial Convention, held at Philadelphia in 1955, took the first concrete step in this direction by setting aside a nominal gum for the purpose. In the interim 1956 and 1957 the Society has annually awarded 20 Scholarship Grants in the amount of $200.00 each as decreed by the Supreme Board. Thus, in the two years since the 1955 Convention, the 1958, will mark one of the Croatian Fraternal Union has made available $8,000 to the [larger C.F.U. duclcpinners en- 40 member-students found hy the Supreme Board to be the most deserving of such aid. While this represents a very good beginning, the fact remains that it is a far cty from the aid actually needed to extend a real helping hand to those of our member-students who deserve an opportunity to study in an institution of higher learning and go on to take their rightful places on the American and Canadian scenes. Applicants Far Exceed Limited Awards Our experience along this line the past two years has taught us many things of importance to our membership in general. For example: During 1956 and 1957, the Home Of fice annually received more than 50 applications for the 20 Scholarship Grants of each or more than 100 ap plications for the 40 awards made during that period of time. Which means that the Supreme Board could not aid many of those who applied for the simple reason that the money for the purpose was and remains limited. True, even the present $200.00 Scholarship Grant is a Godsend to an average member-student, yet it is but a pit tance in the light of today's costly process of coming into a higher education and the great sacrifices parents must make in order to educate their sops and daughters.
