Thus, card games became part of American mores and folklore. Further proof of this point may be discovered in the history of Republic county. In 1873, the town of Cuba was founded, a major portion of the residents being of Bohemian ancestry. Research shows that they were good people; who worked hard and had faith in themselves, in their land, and in God. Pastimes included square dancing, native dances, and card playing.

Hanover defeated Haddam, 71 to 42 in finals of the tournament Approximately 50 people attended the second World Affairs Institute in Republic county, held Friday night, according to Mrs. H. J. Adams, chairman of the local UNESCO unit. This institute was under the joint auspices of the Institute of Citizenship and the county UNESCO organization. During the afternoon session in the Belleville high music room, members and discussion leaders reviewed methods used by groups in other states and cities. Major topic for tnis second World Affairs meeting was the question “Is There an Answer to World Communism?” A brief historical background of Communism was given by members of the Institute of Citizenship along with the discussion of its theory and practice. Members attending the afternoon meeting then analyzed the ways and means of fighting Communism in the United States and in Europe. The evening’s panel discussion pointed out that European people must be taught to help themselves through diversified means of production. Support will be guaranteed by the United States but it is not to be accepted as a gratis movement; retribution by the receiving countries must be made. General answer to the leading question, that of combating world communism, was “Man can think better on a full stomach, so give him the tools and teach him self-sufficiency through democratic means.” The other element stressed was that of an informed public. Members of the institute emphasized that “only an informed public can keep the peace!” The third World Affairs Institute will be held Friday, March 30, in the Belleville high school music room, according to Mrs. Adams. FILM AND STAGE SHOW Technicolor films featuring a tour of Europe and the importance of soil to the general welfare of the nation will be sponsored by the Gould Farm Supply next Tuesday evening, March 13, at the high school auditorium.
