    Sundries

    p. 3- Undoubtedly the Greek community of Chicago is very much honored by its president, Dr. G. Papaeliou, and his profession. But it is too bad that the Grecian Aesculapius, in spite of his five years in this country, cannot hold a conversation in English to tell the American people how well he administers the affairs of the community. Besides this he is a very poor mathematician, for when it comes to giving an account of the community's funds, he always experiences great difficulty with figures and numbers. After all, the community cannot expect the learned doctor to be as efficient in figuring as he is in writing prescriptions.

    Of course in regard to the $1,500 shortage in the community's funds he is not to be blamed, for doctoring and figuring are not the same art and profession, but when it comes to his inability to learn English, I think that our good doctor is not to be excused. Since he has lived here for five years and is still unable to use the English language as proficiently as he pushes the pencil, something must be wrong. Maybe I am unfair not to take the doctor's head into consideration. That is, he either has an Albanian head, incapable of learning anything, or his head is dizzy with those bothersome figures. Anyway, our eminent doctor-president is preoccupied with things that a mere publisher does not understand.

    Greek Doctors' Meeting

    p. 2 - We are happy to announce that the Greek physicians and surgeons of the city of Chicago held a meeting last week and resolved to organize a club among themselves. The object of the formation of such a club is to discuss the possibility of the establishment of a Greek hospital.

    It is maintained that the community is large enough to support an institution of this kind. And it is further maintained that the proposed Greek hospital could easily support itself because Greek patients from other parts of the country would prefer to patronize a Greek institution where they could easily converse in Greek with doctors, nurses, attendants, and others.

    Star's note:

    The idea is wonderful and beneficial to our community, and the institution is very badly needed. Congratulations to the Greek Aesculapians. The Greek community of Chicago will whole-heartedly support the erection of the Greek hospital.

    Judgment against the Chicago Greek Community $8,000 in the Bank the President and His Chain of Lawyers

    p. 3- In spite of $8,000 in the bank a judgment of $285.65 has been entered against the Greek community in Chicago. Why? Because the president of the community, Dr. Papaeliou, wants litigation in order to keep his string of lawyers busy. And what is the object or the necessity of keeping so many attorneys on the payroll of the community? To have enough legal talent on hand to perpetuate his grip upon the community's treasury.

    It is really a shame and an indignity to permit the name of the community to be dragged into litigation. Time will teach our eminent doctor that the president of a community must not stoop to actions motivated by personal animosity nor display the community's dirty linen in public litigation. Doctor, your oath to your profession is strong enough to bring you to your senses. Memorize it, doctor, for your interest and the interest of the community.

    Preparations for Greek-American Meeting.

    p. 4. -Responding to the request of Miss Addams, a committee of prominent members of the Greek community, headed by the Reverend Father Pegeas, met last Friday at Hull House and laid plans for a "come-together and know-one-another" meeting of Greeks and Americans.

    Beaming with joy in the presence of so many Greeks, who represented every station of life in the community, the honorable lady, who is widely known as the friend of foreigners and especially of Greeks, took the floor after calling the meeting to order and expressed her thoughts,in particular her desire to effect a closer association of the Greek and the native elements and to make known the progress of the Greeks in the city of Chicago and if possible of those in other parts of the country.

    2

    The Greeks, who always stand ready for anything good, after listening to the constructive words of Miss Addams appointed a numerous organization committee, headed by the Reverend Leontios Pegeas, archimandrite of the Greek church, to complete all the details of the forthcoming Greek-American meeting, which will take place on January 3, 1906.

    The organization comprises all the Greek societies and organizations, the professionals, the merchants and businessmen, and the church. The Hon. Dr. N. Salapoulos, Consul General of Greece in Chicago, will also serve on the committee.

    This is one more step in our progress to real Americanization; the heterogeneous elements of America will mingle with the homogeneous old-American element to form the solid rock of Americanism. Sound thinking and good work! The initiator of the idea is well acquainted with the law of imitation, which has a tremendous influence upon us mortals.
