    Million Dollar Fund for Slavic Liberty.

    At the regular meeting of the Central Commitee of the Slovenian Republican Organization it has been decided to organize a subscription and collect donations for a Million Dollar Fund, with which our people can be freed from the Italian annexation. The figure of a million dollars may sound enormous and alarming, but after all. It is worth the cause we are fighting for; and if we can judge from the number of sympathizers, we believe the figure will be easily attained.

    The following emblems will be distributed among subscribers: Five dollars will have an emblem bearing the initials S. R. Z. From five dollars to ten dollars, a similar emblem witn one star. From ten to twenty-five dollars, an emblem with two stars. From twenty-five to fifty dollars, an emblem with three stars.

    Artistic Diplomas will also be awarded to those who will subscribe from twenty- five to fifty dollars.
