A PORTION of the "student body" attending passes during the staging April 26-27 last in Chicago of the first Trainiiuc School for Lodge suggestions for future Train ing School Classes More Schools In Wind I The Western Pennsylvania Training School will mark only the second such under taking in the. 64-year-annals of the Croatian Fraternal Union. The first Training School was held April 26-27, 1958, in Chicago and came to amaze even the most ardent of its supporters when the last class shot was fired and the Dele gates went away singing the praises of their Society. Other Training Schools I are "in the wind" at this writing and it is expected that more and more CFU Centers will be asking for such sessions fit the near future. Among those deeply inter jested in such a project are our members in Southern On tario, Canada. We brought out the sub ject of Training Schools dur ling an address we delivered April 26 last before a large crowd of celebrants in atten dance at the Banquet which climaxed the running that day of the CFU's 12th Annual Nat'l Canadian Five Pin Tourney and the idea found immediate favor with our fra ternal leaders in the area. No question about it: CFU Training Schools are here to stay and stay. Detroit 351 Seeking Bro. Martin Kaludjer DETROIT "Zora" CFU Lodge 351 is looking for its member bro.

John Kovach In Victory At Polls Ex-CFl Official Scores Easy Win V. I. Mandich Supreme President PITTSByRGH Primary elections are held for the pur pose of nominating candidates for city, county, state and na tional offices, whose names will appear on the ballots in the general elections in No vember. It is the general attitude of the voters to consider the primary elections unimpor tant. On the contrarv. the nomination of candidates is even more important, in some instances, than the election of the nominees at the gen eral elections. The w hole success of the program, be it of ail indi vidual, or of the party de pends on the calibre of can didates nominated in the primary elections. Is is the duty of every American citizen to exercise his rights and privileges of citizenship at every turn as readily and willingly as he is ready and willing to assume, at all times, his share of the responsibility of good citizen ship. The members of the Croa tian Fraternal Union while prohibited by the by-laws from discussing politics, poli tical or religious issues, at lodge meetings, nevertheless, as good citizens, must and do exercise the privileges and responsibilities of American citizenship. These responsibilities in clude active participation in political and civic life in their own community, in the state, and in the nation.
