Another Hungarian Day, íhé
11th arrangement by our Hun%
garian Grand Committee came
to a succesful close early Mon*
day morning.
Idora Park was again
thronged by our people who
gathered from all parts of
the Youngstovm district to
celebrate this day.
This year we were honored
by the presence of Governor
Martin L. Dave#.
We invited the Governor
to be with us, to give us a
non-political talk fitting for
a Hungarian Day program, and
to bring us who are good
citizens of this state and
nation the official greetings of
the great state of Ohio.
instead the Governor deliv
ered a half-hour political talk
and he has himself to blame
if people started to walk out
on him. This is the first time
in 11 years that a political
speech was made on the Hun
garian Day program. The
courtesy of the host was the
only thing which prevented
us from cutting his speech
Our people in heat of Hun
garian Day afternoon do not
care to listen to long talks,
especially political talks. They
did not care to hear about
the penitentiary, Marysville
and the Soldiers' Home. The
governor lost many friends due
to his long-windedness and the
violation of the non-political
induction of which he was
well aware.
A lump rose in our ihrocá

eyes as Miss Anna Marie Vass
thanked in Hungarian the
grand committee and the Hun
garians of the district for the
$75 scholarship award which

Miss Vass is of the third
generation. Her parents were
born in this country, their
grand-parents, both living,
came from Hungary.
The $75 we give to two good
students to help them in their
first year of higher studies is
a paltry sum compared with
the results. To have our third
generation thank us in Hun
garian is sufficient reward. ,,
Later her father thanked' Tfly,
me for what I have done for
his daughter.

we asked of them. They said
our questions were "asinine."
We believe they did not dare

Among other questions we
asked if it was not true that
they attacked very bitterly
John L. Lewis, the CIO organ

and that they urged Hun
garian-born miners not to join
his organization but that of
the so-called progressive or
independent unions?
We asked if it was not true,
that in Russia trade unions
can't ask for wage increases?
That in Russia the unions are
no more or less than debat
ing societies? That in Russia
the workers can't strike? And
finally that the Russian con

the workers of Russia contains
a provision that workers are
paid "according 0 the quan-
