To thousands of Detroit'schildren he is know as "Eko,"the artist on WWJ-AV's"Playschool." To Ukrainiansaround the world the three letters spell out Edward Kozak,the sharp-penned editorial cartoonist.The pseudonym "Eko" (madeup of first two parts of hisnames) first appeared as a signature on a cartoon 25 years
ago.
The name now is on numerous paintings, murals, caricatures—and even on a Sovietarrest order.The Ukrainian community ofDetroit observed the 25th anniversary of Kozak's artisticcareer with a two-day jubileeprograni last weekend at theInternational Institute.After receiving his art training in Germany and Poland,Kozak went to work for thesatirical magazine K о m a r(Mosquito). His biting cartoons and caricatures soon wonhim attention throughout Europe. Before long his workswere being syndicated.His caricatures of Stalincreated a European sensationand even became the subjectof a discussion in the Britishparliament. It also so incensedthe late Soviet dictator thathe personally ordered Kozakarrested when the Reds overran Western Ukraine, reportsJohn J. Najduch of the Detroit News.Kozak fled underground, butwas captured by {he Germantroops. He also lampoonedthem and was put in a forcedlabor camp from which American troops liberated him.He came to this country iiMarch. 1949. His first job waspainting houses. Then thenoted Italian muralist AndrewMaglia heard about his presence in Detroit and hired himas an assistant.Kozak lives with his wifennd two sons, George, 21, andJerry, 13, at 4947 Daniels.The major part of the anniversary program was held at:he Institute's Hall of NationsAmong those present werethree New Yorkers who cameespecially for the programThey are Joseph Hirniak, stagestar and director, Ivan Ker-nycky, writer, and RomanKupchyneky, writer.

UKRAINE'S 300 YEARS
OF
HEROIC STRUGGLE
FOR
FREEDOM
AND
INDEPENDENCE
There are at present many der Moscow Russia, Ukrainecountries occupied and enslavedby Russia. The largest of themis Ukraine, with a populationof over 40 millions.Last year and this year theirintense propaganda has beendisseminated in the U.S.S.R. ortthe so-called Treaty of Pere-yaslav which initiated the enslavement of Ukraine by Moscow. Celebrations on a mostfantastic and elaborate scalehave been going on in the USSR and particularly in Ukraineto commemorate the greatestmistake of the Ukrainian people its link with Moscowforged by the Treaty of Pere-yaslav, January 18, 1654 between the Ukrainian HetmanBohdan Khmelnytsky and theMoscow Tsar Aleksey Mikhay-lovich. Even postage stampsare utilized in the Soviet propaganda machine. A set of tenpostage stamps on Ukrainiantopics under the slogan: "The300th Anniversary of the Unionof Ukraine with Russia" wereissued in the USSRR becauseMoscow understands very wellthe great importance of postage stamps as a propagandainstrument in the internationalarena.
What is really behindt thePereyaslav Treaty of 1654?By 1653, Ukraine had beenat war for six years with Poland in an attempt to achieveindependence. Being exhaustedby that struggle the UkrainianHetman Bohdan Khmelnytskylooked unsuccessfully for allies,but in the end*.he approachedthe Tsar of Moscow.Ultimately, representativesof Ukraine and Muecovy metin Pereyaslav, from which theill-fated Treaty takes its name.Terms were agreed upon. Inwas deprived of everythingwhich had been set down in theTreaty of Pereyaslav. So Russia occupied the country, enslaved the Ukrainians and finally abolished the very nameof Ukraine and,converted it into a colony under the name of"Little Russia."
*
But the Ukrainian nationnever accepted Russian domination and has for the last 300years fought to throw off theRussian yoke. In fact, Khmelnytsky himself spent the fewremaining years of his life intrying to recover the Ukraine'sindependence, as he realizedthat he had beep completelytricked by the Russians, and,instead of gaining an ally, hadopened the gates of his country to a thief and a destroyer.The first battle took place onlyfive years after the Treatywas made, when the Ukrainians soundly defeated the Muscovites at Konotop in 1659. Inthe Eighteenth century Hetman Ivan Mazepa led Ukraineagain in her struggle againstMuscovite domination. Fighting, more or less severe, continued until, in 1918, the Ukrainians re-established theirown independent sovereignstate upon democratic principles.But Ukraine again wasoverwhelmed by the new masters of Moscow, Russian Bolsheviks, the propagators ofold Tsarist Russian imperialism.The anniversary of the Treaty of Pereyaslav is a day ofdeep mourning for the Ukrainians. But they will never giveup their just struggle. Thestruggle for freedom continuesand the herbic Ukrainian Insurgent Army is fighting and

the Ukrainian SummerCourse
at
the
"Soyuzivka"
VIWhat benefits did the Ukrainian cultural course bringyou at Soyuzivka?Upon my arrival at Soyuzivka and after having been enrolled in our class which is the"kindergarden" of the Courses,a lasting impression was placedupon my mind. Here I havelearned not only to read, towrite, and to speak the language of my parents, but alsoI have learned a great dealabout the history, literature,and music of Ukraine. I neverrealized before how little Iknew about the country of myheritage. A great deal hasbeen left for me to learn, butthese lessons have encouragedand stimulated me to seek outmore knowledge about the Ukraine. Before my arrival hereI had very little or no conception of the Ukrainian language,and because of this. I feel Ihave greatly benefited andhave established a foundation for further pursuit of Ukrainian history.In the elementary class, ofwhich I am a member, singingplays an enjoyable part Itserves not only as a benefit oflearning the words, but it alsobrings the students closer together.From our classroom one isable to see the handsome sceneof mountains which is "a littlebit of Ukraine". This enablesus to visualize of what natureour heritage is and fromwhere it comes.From our literature lessonsand by Professor Blyznak, byDr. Myshuha and by ProfessorManning of Columbia University, we have learned of thefamous Taras Shevchenko andof his great writings whichhave stirred national feeling ofUkrainians everywhere. Fromour history lessons we havelearned of the great men andwomen in the field of Ukrainianculture and of those whofought for their dearly cherished freedom and independence.When someone asks me whatnationality I am, I will gladlysay "I am Ukrainian".Yes, these courses have given to me, not only a materialwealth of learning a new language, but also a spiritualwealth of belonging to the Ukrainian fatherland.Once again I would like tosay that I have benefited immensely from these coursesand perhaps someday I couldreturn to broaden still moremy views and interest concerning my language.NATALIE NESTERENKOVIThe minute one arrives atSoyuzivka there is a feelingthat here is a "bit of Ukraine."The beautiful mountains andsurroundings suggest the Carpathian Mountains of our Ukraine. In this environment Iwas privileged to be given theopportunity to attend the Ukrainian Cultural Courses.As I began to pursue mystudies of Ukrainian literature,history and geography, I foundthat the songs and dancesof the Ukraine were also in-presented to UB by ProfessorManning, of Columbia University, and Dr. Myshuha, Editor-in-Chief of the Svoboda, greatly added to the foundation weacquired in the first two weeksof school. Emphasis was placedon the outstanding figures inUkrainian history, and theproblems of the Ukraine today.The constant guidance of ourprofessors, Mr. Blyznak andMr. Kiselewsky, in the conversation spoken inside and outside of class, plus daily reading and writing exercises greatly improved our proficiency inUkrainian grammar, not tomention the doors that wereopened to students who knewlittle or nothing of Ukrainianculture and grammar.Our concerts and programsproved that what we derivedfrom these courses could bereproduced in the songs,dances, and orations that werepresented.These Ukrainian CulturalCourses were officially initiatedAugust 2, 1954. This marksthe beginning of a new opportunity for Ukrainian Youthand I feel that the Associationhas a wonderful start.These courses definitely mustbe continued to give the Ukrainian youth a knowledge andunderstanding of the problemsand sufferings of the Ukrain-cluded in the curriculum.

Country of Contrasts'The Ukraine is today oneOf the biggest and most populous state in Europe. But theterm 'state' must be used withreserve since the direction ofall important Ukrainian affairsrests in the hands of the Soviet government in Moscow."The Ukraine today is acurious contrast Cities suchas Kiev and Kharkov have astandard of living which is notvery different from that ofMoscow. They are, in fact, becoming rapidly Russified, andit seems to be a deliberate policy of the Soviet leaders tominimize Ukrainian nationalism by confining it more tothe countryside."But in the steppe, which isthe backbone of the country, inthe rich and fertile black eartharea, the Ukrainian farmerhas not forgotten his inheritance, or his language, or hisfaith."

Value of the League Concerts'Before entering into theLeague I had always been unlovely, .emotionally-stirring folkmelodies were the limit in Ukrainian music. The Leagueconcerts opened new worldsto me and the tide of new arrivals into America enhancedmy appreciation with a wealthof symphonic, chamber, choraland classical music of suchcalibre that leading Symphonyorchestras in key cities haveplayed it on the concert stage.Our music was recorded at theCarnegie Hall in New Yorkfor the Voice of America to bebroadcast overseas.We ail know a little of Ukrainian history, but since theLeague Key opened the doorto so many new friendships, Isoon found that my father'snative Bukovina wasn't the center of the universe. My imagination was spurred to the extent of doing some follow-upreading about other parts of

It has served to broaden my interests inmany other nationalities, organizations and projects.Through the International Institute I became truly interested in the arts and cultures ofother nations.

Our
^Manifestations^
Our manifestations—demonstrations, rallies, parades, massmeetings which we arrangefrom time to time to drawpublic attention to the plightof our kinsmen under the Soviet yoke, or to signalize someimportant event in Ukrainianhistory, such as the 300th anniversary of the PereyaslavTreaty, are an inseparable partof our Ukrainian American life.Down through the years, beginning back in 1916 when thefirst of such manifestationswas held in the Cooper Unionin New York, these mass gatherings have been held on numerous occasions and in various parts of the country.There is no doubt but thatthey have proved their value.They have drawn to public attention that for which theyhave been arranged, especiallywhen the American press hasreported them and commentedupon them. A fine example ofthe latter was the recent manifestation held in Buffalo, N. Y.,and reported here last week. Inconnection with it, the BuffaloCourier Express wrote an editorial which was excellent forpromoting better understanding of the Ukrainian problem.Valuable, too, are these manifestations when they have astheir principal speakers Americans of prominence, and whospeak ftp for the "Ukrainiancause. A fine example of thiswas last Sunday's manifestation in New York City, reported here on p. 1. The addressgiven at it by Averell Harri-man, Democratic candidate forthe Governor of>New York,was most heartening: to thosewho seek to win strong friendsfor the Ukrainian cause amonginfluential Americans.Finally, the manifestationspromote solidarity'among Ukrainian Americans and keepthem keyed up in their effortsto support the Ukrainian cause.Yet the value of these massrallies can be greatly enhanced,if they were better arranged.In the first place, they lasttoo long, so that the audiencebecomes restless: 'The lengthof the speeches should be cutoutside the principaTone.

and most of all, I've foundthat people are genuinely' interested in us as Ukrainians.Key Ring Getting Quite FullAll these doors have theLeague Pass-Key opened forme. My Key-Ring is gettingquite full... and I wonder howmany in this League have beenas fortunate as I to derive somuch. I can't tell anyone whatto do to learn more about ourculture, I can only point outthe many doors that can beopened with just a minimum ofeffort.As Ukrainians we are fortunate to have been innatelyendowed with a love for allthings that are happy andcolorful.. .and on this basisthe League has accomplishedmuch in the line of culturalendeavor, The Arts Book andscholarships to Soyuzivka arerealities now... and the DanceBook soon will be. How aboutscholarships to the. local Universities and Soyuzivka fornon-Ukrainians to study ourlanguage and culture? Howabout the possibility of several units on music to includechoral, folk, symphonic, chamber and operatic arrangementsto be published and used forradio presentation.. .and maySome months ago, it will berecalled, Secretary Dulles saidthat this country might beforced to make an "agonizingreappraisal" of its foreign po-licy, but that he hoped thiswould not happen. Now ithas happened, and it is obvious that the "agonizing reappraisal" is underway.The crowning blow, ofcourse, was France's refusal tojoin the European DefenseCommunity. That to all intents and purposes, means theend of EDC—and for morethan three years EDC has beena cornerstone of Americananti-Communist strategy. Oneirony here is that EDC was aFrench concept in the firstplace, and that it was vigorously supported by formerFrench Premiers, and other topofficials. But nationalisticfeeling seems to be runningstrong in France these days.The idea of French soldiersserving along side of Germansoldiers in a supranationalarmy is, obviously, extremelydistasteful to the majority ofthe French people. And of aresurgent Germany a fearforged in two wars in whichFrance sustained human andmaterial destruction on aghastly scale •*- dominatesFrench thinking. There is another irony in this—for, EDCor no EDC, it is perfectlyplain that German rearmament is as certain as anythingcan be in this chaotic worldr.But that didn't change theFrench attitude.It is said that Britain couldhave saved EDC. But shewould not give military forcesto it even though she approved the idea. It is also saidthat French communists andfellow-travelers killed EDC.But the fact remains thatFrench leaders, who are aspassionately opposed to Communism as anyone, wereagainst the plan.' The deathof EDC was certainly a victory for Communism, but, justas certainly, it was- not achieved by the'CommuniBts.What has happened is thatU. S. leadership, of the Westis no longer anywhere near aspotent as it was. In Englandand in Europe' there is a veryreal fear that we have beetttoo aggressive, and. that otherpolicies promise a betterchance of avoiding a thirdworld war of incalculable horror. U. S. News

World Report probably described the situation accuratelywhen it said,"Friends and allies, of the U. S.are going in for 'peaceful coexistence' with Communismwhether the U. S. likes it ornot." To many. Americans,this course amounts-(o possiblenational suicide, for the nations involved. But it is beingadvocated in high places notonly in Europe, ,but in Japanand other Asian nations.The situation is further complicated, from our point ofof view, by the fact that thesands are shifting under Adenauer's pro-American WestGerman government As Marquis Childs recently wrote,"What comes after Adenauer,no one will predict, except tosay that it is almost certain tobe bad, the resurgence of theextreme Nationalist and formerNazi forces that already havebegun to come back."These are among .the greatproblems with whiqh Washington must now deal. Abright note is found in theconfident determination withwhich the President, Mr.and the other щеп involvedare facing them... .be a course or a book on weaving and patterning of Plakh-tas,Kilims, belts, etc. Also,consider the feasibility ofworkshops in Ukrainian dancecontinuing to assist and cooperate with other Ukrainianorganizations such as the UCC,CYA, UNA and others in theirvarious endeavors ... and mostimportant, being available atall times when we are calledupon by other non-Ukrainiangroups to participate with them.A little cultural propaganda inthe way of personal contactdoes more good for the Ukrainians individually and collectively than a pile of talk and action among ourselves alone.All the above mentioned,with the exception of the last

What's phylloxera? What sort of a yarnis this?""Phlloxera is a sort of plantinsect which often appears oncorn, cucumbers and otherplants, only much smaller.

the crowd roared excitedly, exasperated by the previousreports and rumors they hadheard."I do not say that there isphylloxera in your vineyardsfor I have not yet examinedthem. But why the old peoplehave not observed them, asyou say, the reason is that onlyjust recently the pest has beenimported into Bessarabia fromforeign parts on vine slips andconsequently has not yet hadtime to multiply to a great extent. But phylloxera is dangerous for your vines becauseit multiplies with dreadfulrapidity, it passes from root toroot, from vineyard to vineyard. It may cling to the spadewith the soil you heap out yourvinestocke, to the feet of feetof animals and human beingswho walk over the infested
spot and in such a way it is
easily spread over all the vineyards. Besides this, at the endinsect grows wings, it becomeflying insect, it flies from vineyard to vineyard and depositsits eggs on the vines Therefore, if the evil is not arrested,

there will soon come a timewhen all the vineyards willwither and die.""And what do you do assoon as you find it," asked Zamphir solemnly."The same as you do witha scabby sheep in your flocks.Even more so; we chop downthe vines, burn them, and thenwe inject poison into the rootsso that the phylloxera togetherwith the roots are killed off,and in such a way we preventits spread into other healthyvineyards.""A movement Stirred throughthe crowd."You hear! They chop downour vineyards!""They burn them! They poison the sacred soil! By whatrights? Did they give us thevineyards, did they work onthem, toil and sweat as we havedone?

Along with many others,I have felt that I didn't getenough out of a conventionand that I didn't get enough ofa chance to contribute to it.To offset this, I propose a"commision" type of convention.

Thereis fraternalism and everythingit stands for. U.N.A. branchaffairs such as dances, picnics,clam bakes, stage shows, busrides, and so forth, are examples of fraternalism in action. The recent "Festyn" atthe Soyuzivka was a 'shiningexample of fraternalism, whenfriend met friend and newfriendships were started. Whena member pays his dues he alsocontributes to the U.N.A.

THE AMERICAN WAYThe 83rd Congress
—~
By WILLIS E. STONE(EDITOR'S NOTE: Willis E. Stone is author of the "Proposed23rd Amendment" and President' of the American ProgressFoundation, Los Angeles, Cal.)138"Good pork? I've

fish you can buy."The record of the 83rd Congress is now history. Its sessionsended on a note of victory. Thequestion before the Americanpeople is—which side won thevictory?Involved as we are with thegrim struggle between Americanism and socialism, it is vitalthat we correctly evaluate thelegislative acts of the 83rdCongress, not only to determine whether
0T
not we won orlost ground in this session, butalso to discover ways andmeans of defeating socialismand strengthening constitutionalism in the future.Although the bureaucraticpropaganda machines attemptto confuse the issues, everylegislative enactment can beeasily classified as tending toward one of two opposing political creeds. They either conform to the American Bill ofRights or give support to theCommunist Manifesto.(A comparison of the Bill ofRights and the CommunistManifesto, together with adigest of the legislation adopted by the 83rd Congress, isavailable free on request fromthe American Progress Foundation. 1540 No. HighlandAve., Los Angeles 28. Calif.)To the credit of the 83rdCongress, some valuable progress was made in getting government back to the businessof protecting private propertyand in reducing the bureaucratic competition with private enterprise. This is thefirst time in twenty-five yearsthat we have seen such a trend.However, great opportunitiesfor service to American principles were neglected.For example: In responseto the demand that the plundering by the ReconstructionFinance Corporation be stoppedthe Congress aboliehed it, butimmediately surrendered to thebureaucrats by reestablishingthe same corruption under thename of the Small BusinessAdministration.There was a slight reductionin taxes, but this was a slightin taxes, but this was offsetby the raising of the national debt limit by $6,000,000,-
000.
It seems to be a verysmall reduction when we consider the billions of plunderfor socialistic empire buildingwhich has already taken 40percent of the land area and20 percent of the industrialcapacity of the nation.On the credit side of theledger for the American people was the return of the tide-lands, the defeat of health insurance subsidies, reductionof agricultural subsidies, private enterprise in the atomicPa—"It's a terrible thing.

power industry, and the refusal to water down the Taft-Hartley. Oct.On the socialist side of theledger is the arbitrary captureof 10 million more victims forthe social security thievery, theperpetuation of the housingfrauds, the refusal to investigate or control the unconstitutional practices of* the federalcorporations, and the refusalto submit the question ofAmerican sovereignty and independence (the BrickerAmendment) to the Americanpeople for decision.This constitutes a muddledand confused record. Its onlyvirtue lies in the fact that itis better than the record of anyCongress in recent years, butthat is not enough.
