Considerable Interest is shown in tlm
matter by the Czech newspapers and
their support Is supplemented by that
of a number of Bohemian societies:
The Importance of tho Instruction to .
the Bohcmfan Is so cearthat it. needs
no ' nrsup'iont. Tho BohemianVlvp'ls ,
not wall versed "in English is at: a (lis,
tlnct disadvantage In his life in thonow
world. Ho cannpt converso with his
Amerlcan4)orn neighbor, and so h"6 is
left for social and business intercourse
to his countrymen who are in tlo samo
.position. This has given the Bohem
ians the name of being backward,
when tho reverse Is true. The young ' .
Bohemians, educated in America;"' are
given Instruction in English and other
tongues, but not In Czech, and" so lhy
drift away from the. languago ofuflidir
fathers, and are not of roal sfervlce to
their fellows, If they could bo in
structed in Czech and in other
languages they would b able to com
municato more freely with their peo.
pie, and so could Impart the knowledge
they have gained from attending the .'
schools and universities. In this way '
they would assist the Bohemians "who;
have not been educated In Englslr and.
give them tho advantages dr higher"". .
