His expenses of $76.88 were approved for payment. A letter received from Lodge 391 pertaining to the ques tion of assistance to our old members was acknowledged and filed. Bro. Bella is to notify said lodge that an article was published by the Executive Board in the Official Organ on this question for purposes of clarifying the issue. Bro. Mandich gave a report on the meeting of Lodge 146 in Versailles, Pa., which he attended and at which he presented Bro. Karlo Puskarich his 50-year membership pin. Bro. Ovcarich was delegated to visit the membership of Lodge 655 in Kent, Ohio, for the purpose of assisting them in transferring to other lodges of the Society, since their lodge is deactivating. Bro.

Chicago, Ind., on February 1,1959. The Board approved the transfer of $2975.10 from the Junior Expense Fund to the Sports and Educational Fund which amount represents expenses for Junior sports for 1958. This transfer is authorized by decision of the Su preme Board. On the recommendation of bro. Bella, the Board ap proved the motion of bro. Mandich seconded by bro.

Joseph Bella, Supreme Secretary Chicago Nest 242 Beehive of Activity As Youngsters Prep For April 19 Show Tamburitza And Kolo Groups In Rehearsals For Biggest Concert Program In Many Years CHICAGO, 111. This is I take this opportunity to wish all the»mothers and members of Nest 242 the very best of health, love, and un derstanding and a very Hap py New Year. to inform the members of Nest 242, their parents and guardians, that at the last meeting I was instructed not to carry any member, re gardless of the type of insur ance, if the dues payment is not taken care of by the 25th of each month. Since this is such short notice we will give our members until February 8 to settle their obligations. This may be done at the Church basement on Feb ruary 8, at 1:00 p.m., or at my home, 9832 Muskegon. Furthermore, due to m^ health, I will remain as Nest Manager only until someone has been selected to replace me. I therefore urge all mem bers to keep their dues paid up regardless of who is nest manager. In this way you can elimi nate the necessity of being suspended. The Nest 242 Tamburitzans and Kolo Group will continue as in the past. Kolo sessions will be held on Thursday eve nings in the Church basement and the tamburitzans will practice on Saturday, 11:00 a.m. for beginners, and 12:00 noon for the older group. Now the work really be gins for our Concert will be staged April 19. The children are working very hard as are the mothers. Mothers Auxiliary Meet ings are held the 3rd Wed nesday of every month at 7:30 p.m. We invite the mothers to please attend, for otherwise how will you know what must be done and can be done? If we work together we can really come out on top. EVERY MEMBER GET A MEMBER Pauline Stanley, Mgr. Chicago Primorci To Live It Up January 31 CHICAGO The Primorac Club, which is comprised of "Križari" and "Progress" Lodge members, will stage its Annual Mesopust or Masque rade Dance on Saturday, Jan uary 31. The Assumption School Hall, corner of 60th and South Marshfield Ave., will be the scene of the festivi ties which will begin at 8:30 p.m. Music will be provided by Frankie Kovacich and Or chestra and donation will be $1.25 per person. Member« and friends are all cordially invited to attend. Mary Julian Milwaukee Area Moms Set Feb. 14th As Date For New Tammie Classes MILWAUKEE, Wis. The Silver String Junior Tammies will start a second group (Continued From Page 9) It is interesting to watch the automobiles in the morn ing and evening, when the working people ride to work and from work. The automo biles speed by, one after a nother, each automobile car rying, as a rule, one rider. All the streets are so filled with automobiles that a per son scarcely finds room to park his oar during working hours. Just about every house has a radio and television set. The house has modern heating facilities, a bathroom, none of which was to be had in the "good old days." Modernize Meetings The children go to elemen tary school, then high school, and many continue with col lege. These young people take part in many extra-curricular activities promoted by the schools and universities. To day's young people have so many more and varied inter ests than we and our pioneers had in our youth. They do not wait for lodge meetings to be able to go out and meet their friends and ac quaintances they are pre occupied with their numerous activities and interests. But despite their many ac- Let us he fair and not as- the 14th of February, at which time the instruments will also be on hand.

It is we older members who are wont to draw out and un necessarily prolong our meet ings to such an extent that if there are some younger members present at the meet ing they are bored and it be comes impossible to get them interested in attending future meetings. We are living in an era of great changes. We must ad just to these times and move forward in the spirit of the times. There is no return to the old methods nor does anyone with common sense wish that. Young In Majority At the close of 1958 our Society numbered something over 110,000 members. Of this number, close to 27,000 THE NATIONALLY famed "Sloboda" Tam buritzans, who will take part Sunday, Feb. 1, In tks Croatian Fsaternal Union Scholarship Older Members Can Do A Great Deal To Interest Young People In Society are past 50 years of age, which means that 83,000 members are under age 50. People under 50 years are still young, and they, are the ones who chiefly came up from our Junior Order. It is hard to prove, but believable, that more than one-half of our adult members are former members of the Junior Order. Statistics show that the older members are already now in the minority, but the Croatian Fraternal Un ion slowly, but continuous ly, forges ahead. These statistics, which are True, our older members are still in the first ranks in every membership campaign, and they deserve recognition and commendation of all of us. But in every campaign there appears a certain num ber of new and young faces. There is not as many as we would desire, but the number can be increased if we older tivities, if they are brought members will know how to up from childhood in an at-j approach them and enthuse mosphere of fraternal spirit, them by drawing them into our activities. many of them will find the time for their lodge meet ings, too. Lodge meetings should be constructive, education al, entertaining and much shorter than is the practice to date in many of our lod ges. We have good examples where our younger members became interested in their Society and the promotion of our national culture. These should be encour aged. They should be helped and praised, and instructed, so that, together and enthusi- younger members will coop erate in building their Society. We must not throw cold water on every idea and ac tion of the younger members. i So. Chicago Story Recently, I was witness at a very well planned and suc cessful celebration. The Uni ted Lodges of the CFU in So. Chicago observed thoir fifth anniversary. Our native-born younger members play the leading role, in the committee. The committee is made up half-and-half of older and younger members. All worked together in planning the cele bration, which is the reason for their success. They published a pro gram book, artistically ar ranged, and, I might say, one of the nicest I have ever seen. It was prepared by our young, educated peo- pie, who, as such, hold prominent positions in to day's social life. The greetings and adver tisements in the program book brought over $1,600.00. The program itself was led chiefly by the younger mem bers. Who solicited the great number o advertisements and greetings I do not know, but 1 would guess that our older members mostly worked on that. But that the young er members contributed their share. I do not doubt. The result was a tremen dous success. Such a success accurate, certainly disprove could not even be imagined the statement that "When we possible without the coopera- lare gone, the Society will go, too". We will all gradually go, and a large number are al ready gone, for that is the process of nature, but the Croatian Fraternal Union will remain and continue to grow. Give Them A Hand! tion of our native-born and educated young people. They are issuing their local bulletin, which is very interesting and eagerly read wherever it comes. Why The Division? I have described this good example to show the worth of our younger members' good work, if they are given the opportunity and recogni tion. But all too frequently we older members will not give due recognition, and will bat tle, instead of offering our help, thereby disappointing the young people and causing them to gradually lose inter est and stop working for the good of the Society. In South Chicago we have eight lodges. Two withdrew earlier from this group, leav ing only six to take part in the celebration. I now learn that one more lodge withdrew, leaving only five out of eight lodges in the United Lodges. That certainly is not good. The more we are divided the weaker we become, as we learned in our youth. Why, then, the division? This praiseworthy work in South Chicago should be sup ported by all the lodges, and they should be proud of our young members who are rep resenting us before other peo ple very honorably. If we refuse to support and cooperate with our young members, they will become disheartened and withdraw. And where will we be then, what will we have accomp lished? CFU Here To Stay I know of cases whew two or more candidates competed for lodge offices. Some are in their 30's, others in their 65's and 70's, and there is a campaign being conducted to see who will win. Generally, the older mem ber will win, for they know how to organize better. And then it is complained that the Four^"4on Dinner and Program to be held in the Etna, Pa., Lodge i Graafian Home, SO Grant Avenue. younger members will not take active part in the Soci ety's work. How can they, if they are not given the oppor tunity? There are too many young members who refuse to hold office in their lodges, in which case there is nothing left to do but for the older members to take over. But hope should not be aban doned, for one day some younger members are found who are willing to take on lodge responsibilities. It is impossible to find a lodge among whose officers there is not at least one na tive-born young member, and there are lodges which are led mostly or entirely y n a i v e- o n o e members of our Junior Order. Let us give the younger people a chance. Arouse their enthusiasm for our Society, for our culture and for our sports activities, promoted by the Society. We can then be assured that, after we who are past 50 years leave this world, the Society will not disappear but continue, from day to day, from year to year, to be ever greater, stronger, more mod ern and richer. Let's forget the "good old days". Let's become acclima ted to the new society, a so ciety of unceasing progress. Sacramento Lodge Set For Year of Activity SACRAMENTO, Calif. On December 9, 1958, Capitol City CFU Lodge 843 held its Annual Christmas Party at Posey's Cottage, 11th and Oh Street. We had at attendance of 45 members and guests and a very nice dinner was served on a beautifully decorated table, done by our members Frances Viducich, Stella Lu cich, and the undersigned. We also exchanged gifts and had a lot of fun doing so. Our President, Rudy de Po lo, introduced some of our newcomers. They were our two transfe rees from the Nest, Tom Mur phy and Lawrence Andrenc cette, and our transferees from Tooele, Utah, Lodge 368, Frank and Anne Callen and William Thomas. They were greeted with a nice round of applause. Next came our election of officers for 1959. Pete Lozancich was elected Pres ident, and to show her how much we thought of her and wanting to make her fed welcome, we proceeded to elect Anne Callen as Vice President. She said she never heard of such fast workers. Anna Radman will remain as Secretary, Stella Lucich will serve as Treasurer, and Rose Carlson will fill the po sition of Sick Committee Pres ident. President of the Board of Trustees is Ned Pedesich and our old faithful, Bernice Kr pan, will act Recording Secretary. The election was the last point of business for the day. Anna Radman, Secy.
