Responding for the group was the writer, who in turn called on Peter Frank War ker, Jr., Vice Consul of the United States of America, stationed in Zagreb, to wel come the visitors from the States and Canada.

Forms to record and report the ses sional activities are readily available from those to whom bowling is a profitable busi ness. Yet ever since 1944 when sports was recognized on a top level, the Croatian Frater nal Union, which has no mon etary gains from it, was mak ing available to its sanctioned leagues a "bowling box score" form. We advocate its use because it proudly carries the name of the Society and was printed in our own printery. It is a daptable whether you use to tal pins or points to determine the match winners. League secretaries have been using it to assign teams to their respective al leys and to record the indi vidual scores, game by game, as they come off the score sheets at the alleys. It is well to use C.F.U. forms when same are avail able as it indicates to the bowlers, old and new, and to many of us and others as well that in the Croatian Fraternal Union we think well enough a o u i n a -o a n i z a i o n sports to have our own forms for recording the results.

CHICAGO, Ind. Since bowling season has started, September 21 was the week that the men bowled with their heart and soul. If you were looking for a 200 game among the men, it wouldn't be hard to find for Louis Kre sich had a 232 for a 571 ser ies. Myles Piskol and George Boravich weren't sa i s i e with only one 200 game, no, they had to have two Miles Piskol rolled a 201-195-218 for a 614 series while George Boravich had a 176-215-214 for a 605 series. There isn't too much brag ging that could be done about the women's games so far bi^t then, it's a little too early in the season. We'll let the men shine in this sport de partment for ft little while longer. Ann Zunac had a 187-479 and Helen Stepich a 176 game Sept. 21st. To date, there is one woman who has really im proved since the end of last season and that is Dolores Cvitkovich. On October 26, 1958, the Harborite Bowlers will hold a dance at the Croatian Home, 4033 Main Street, with music to be furnished by the Cavalier Xamburit za Orchestra. As in the past, we promise you an enjoyable evening, so need I say more. See you then. OCTOBER 22,1958 From The Department Of Sports And Education By Frank Braidic, Department Director stress the individual sessional highs, one and three games, and this to a depth three to six deep which is almost un heard from elsewhere. Contrast this seasonal highs now and then to ses sional highs over a 28 to 33 weeks season. The Zajedničar, as the So ciety's official organ, propor tionately devotes more lines to publicising sports and as a result the individual in a fa vorable light than he could purchase elsewhere if he even normally had the money. Per iodical tabulations brinp to gether names and scores from a wide area. Truly Great Society We but say that all this is only possible with member ship in such an organization as ours and with as wide an extent as enjoyed by the Cro atian Fraternal Union. Advertise the Society, when and where you can, by using its sports forms, making known its year round social activities and pointing out that it affords you associa tion, particularly if you are an active member, in many a city and small town throughout the United States and Canada. Finally, recommend membership within the Cro atian Fraternal Union, and this at more than token protection, to your eligible relatives and friends. Whatever the selling point, we can carry our heads high.
