Our readers are reminded about the
Forty-Fifth Czech Day at the State Fair
in Dallas this Sunday, October 6th.
The Program is being reprinted in this
issue, again. This day needs and
deserves the support of all citizens of
wherever if possible for them to
It was the foresight of Czech people
in the Dallas-Ft Worth area and,
frankly, all over Texas who had the
inspiration to contact the State Fair
authorities, in the early part of this
century, and get the Czech Day set for
the annual State Fair. We should
support those pioneers’ efforts and
continue this efforí in any way
In this issue are ietters from SL S/T
Leonard Mikeska and Ms. Jeanne
Jacques pertaining to the Texans of
Czech Ancestry(TOCA) and plans for
next year’s Sesquicentennial
celebrations plus information about
the Czech Heritage Society of Texas
Genealogy Workshop to be held
October 26th and 27th in Victoria.
Check the Bulletin Board for the
upcoming fall district meetings and try
to attend them, if possible, especially
in your district!
Whenever you need to travel by
plane,you get to the airport, ticket in
hand, only to find that your flight is
overbooked and you háve no seat. It is
happening a lot these days. Last year
several thousand passengers were
denied seats on flights for which they
had tickets. The practice, knowň as
bumping, is legal. The airlines li ke to
point out that your chances of being
bumped are statistically quite smáli.
But as more airlines overbook to make
sure their flights are full, the problém
is growing worse.
In čase catching a flight is critical, be
sure to ask about the airline’s bumping
rules when you make your reservation.
Each airline does it a little differently.
Even if you háve checked in when you
arrive at the airport, received a seat
assignment and checked in again at the
gate, you stiíl háve no assurance of a
seat if you are not physically there
when bumping decisions are made. So
check in early and stay near the gate.
Do not go for coffee or a newspaper.
Your best bet: Get on the plane as soon
as boarding starts.
Before ticketed passengers can be
left behind, the Transportation
Department — which oversees airline -
consumer complaints -- requires
carriers to ask for volunteers to give up
seats in return for compensation,
usually cash on the spot or a free
Should you volunteer to get Off?
First, ask a few questions: How much
cash is offered -- enough to cover your
extra costs? The amount is negotiable.
Will the airline provide other
amenities such as free meals or hotel
rooms? When is the next flight?,
If the airline doesn’t get enough
volunteers, it can bump passengers
against their will. If that happens to
you and the airline places you on
another flight scheduled to arrive
within aň hour of the originál one, you
won’t receive anything. But if you are
placed on a flight arriving between 1
and 2 hours latě, you will get an
amount equal to the faře of your
overbooked flight up to $200. If the
airline cannot get you to your
destination within 2 hours -- 4 hours
for flights leavíng the U.S. -- you get
twice your faře up to $400.
You do not háve to accept the
amount offered. You can try to
negotiate with the carrier’s complaint
department. Further information is
included in the 1985 edition of “Facts
and Advice for Airline Passengers” by
the Aviation Consumer Action
Project. For a copy, send $2to ACAP,

If you think you may be allergic to
sulfites — preservatives applied to both
fresh and processed foods to improve
their appearance — the Food and Drug
Administration advises you to avoid
eating at salad bars and ordering any
potato dishes in restaurants. Aiso, stay
away from beer or wine. Most
restaurants háve stopped using sulfites
in their food preparation, says an FD A
spokesman. But they háve no way of
knowing whether their food supplies
are treated with the stuff. As many as
one million people, primarily
asthmaíics, are allergic to sulfites.
Allergic reactions can range from
relativeiy mild nausea and diarrhea to
fatal shock. Sulfites are known to háve
contributed to 15 deaths. The FD A has
announced plans to ban them from
fresh fruits and vegetables. The
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and
Firearms is considering a warning label
for beer and wine containing more
than a minimal amount of sulfite.
Lodge 87, Temple was the setting
for the 1985 SPJST Straight Domino
Playoff held September 21st. The
participants and guests were welcomed
by the officers and members of Lodge
87. The day was full of fun and
friendly competition. The participants
enjoyed not only the game and the
honor of representing their lodge, but
also rekindling friendships with fellow
SPJST members from all over the
státe. The day was interrupted only by
a wonderful noon meal served by
Even though there could only be Ist,
2nd and 3rd plače winners, we feel that
all participants were winners.
First plače was captured by Lodge
186, Caldwell, represented by Thomas
Cannon and Ervin Moore.
In second plače was Lodge 29,
Taylor, represented by Herbert
Riethmeyer and Edwin Adámek.
Third plače was Lodge 17, New
Tábor, represented by Andrew and
The tournament ended around 7
p.m. with the presenting of the
trophies by President Leshikar.
We wish to thank Lodge 87’s
officers and members for doing a
superb job in hosting the playoff, the
representatives from the lodges who
participated, Bud Petty, tournament
director and the judges and staff who
helped the day run smoothly.
Here’s what’s next.
