returned Aug 23 after experienc ing what a free country felt like and lit erally tasted like It was the third visit for Prochazka He went in 1970 and in 1991 The Velvet Revolution in 1989 cleared the way for capitalism but it was slow to come I just wanted to go back and see if capitalism is he said Its been a revelation to me to see what has hap pened from May to August of Prochazka said Let me tell you capitalism is flour ishing When we last visited the country the citizens had no concept of mer chandising They had been under Communist rule for 41 years That had killed their initiative We went to a crystal factory and asked if we could buy some crystal They had no idea what we were talking about It was a chore to buy crystal When we went there this time They had a display office and we saw a 10minute video They have made it in English French German and Japan ese Japan is their biggest purchaser at this time They are getting into the free enter prise Prochazka is personally familiar
