  • Balkan -- February 09, 1909
    United Slavic League

    Last Sunday, February 7th, the great idea of a United Slavic Front became a reality on a small scale. For years and years this idea was propagated among the people of Slavic extraction with no visible success. This time a cornerstone was laid by a few energetic people in Chicago.

    As we said, last Sunday a meeting was held with representatives of all Slavic colonies present. After a long and heated discussion, it was decided to appeal to all our newspapers in America. A campaign was started to organize small units in every Slavic concentration. We sincerely believe that this campaign united all our people in a powerful central organization.

    This idea has such wide fields for expansion and such importance for 2the welfare of our people here and abroad that with all our hearts we strongly recommend future work on its realization.
