CZECHOSLOVAK DAY IN CAMP MEADE
The Bohemian National Alliance| of Baltimore arranged, at the invitation of the commission on training camp activities, an interesting program for Czechoslovak Day at Camp Meade, Md. The camp is about half way between Washington and Baltimore, and contains 38,000 men. Among them there are several hundred soldiers of Czechoslovak birth, as well as a number of officers, who cooper ated in preparations for the festival most cordially.
The program was held in the Y. M. C. A. auditorium. An address was made by Charles Pergler, Commissioner of the Czechoslovak Government, and members of the Sokol Blesk and of the Catholic Sokol of Baltimore presented gymnastic drills, athletic exhibitions, folk dances and singing. The program was accepted with much enthusiasm by the multitude of soldiers present, and the news papers devoted much attention to the unusual cele bration of a Czechoslovak Day in an American training camp.
TheCzechs deserve much credit for their initiative and for the splendid program pre sented by them.
