Although they have answered many
calls to lessen the suffering of their fel
low countrymen on account of the Euro
pean .war, local Hungarians have not
overlooked a aplnndld opportunity to help
some of their countrymen In Omaha who
are In distress. By next Bunday night the
family of Joseph Mecher will not only
be provided with ,a new home, but wilt
have a 'barn, the house furnished and a

even having any clothing left, Henry

this appeal local Hungarians' and others
have donated over H60.
