The Chicago Foreign Language Press Survey was published in 1942 by the Chicago Public Library Omnibus Project of the Works Progress Administration of Illinois. The purpose of the project was to translate and classify selected news articles that appeared in the foreign language press from 1855 to 1938. The project consists of 120,000 typewritten pages translated from newspapers of 22 different foreign language communities of Chicago.

    Forward, Serbian Workers!

    The time has come when also the Serbian workers in the United States will step forward in the fighting circle of the American workers. They must march openly under their own flag, armed with victory and enlightenment.

    There was talk about a new Serbian Socialist paper. This paper printed in the cyrilic alphabet will be issued about New Year, under the name of Narodni Glas (People's Voice). The edition of the paper is in charge of the central committee of the Serbian department of the Jugoslav Workingmen's Educational and Political Federation.

    We are convinced that this news will gladden Serbian workers all over America, and that they will concentrate all their powers on having it edited. Your support in money should be sent to the Serbian Socialist Committee, 2350 Clybourne Avenue, Chicago.

    First Issue of Narodni Glas

    After the careful work of many months the Serbian Workers of Chicago have succeeded in issuing their Serbian Socialist newspaper, Narodni Glas, for the first time. This paper will inform Serbian workers about class struggle and Socialism.

    The Narodni Glas (People's Voice) was founded by workers and is written by workers; therefore the paper is recommended.

    We call upon the comrades who support our journal with all their might to support also this, the latest pioneer of the Jugoslav Socialist movement, and to try to spread Narodni Glas among Serbian workers.

    Subscription, one year, one dollar.

    Against the Menace of Closing the Public Schools

    On the initiative of John R. Palandech, leaders of the foreign language press, a "dinner-meeting" was held at the Hamilton Club for the representatives of the foreign language press to devise the right means to avoid the danger of closing the schools.

    Introduced by Mr. Polandech, various speakers addressed the audience and Mr. Bogan, Superintendent of Schools, exposed in detail the reasons why the schools must not be closed. It would be a shame for a cosmopolitan city like Chicago.

    A moving picture demonstrated that Chicago spends less than any other city for public education.

    The expense for education in Chicago amounts to 2.40 per cent and that for the criminal element to 8 per cent of the taxes.

    The assembly resolved to try every means to reach a solution of the problem of 2not neglecting the most important branch of social life, the education of the children who represent the future generation.
