As part of Cvetic's dossier on Harajovic, it was disclosed that he is steward of District Five of the National Slovak Society's clubrooms at 520 Court Place. "This makes it appear appear as though the National Slovak Society is Communist, which is not so," the former editor explained. "When I was fired, I went to work in a steel mill and later in a mine. The job as steward in the club opened up and it was given to me. The society was founded 60 years ago, and it must be all right because when I worked for the Peoples News it frequently frequently ran stories condemning some of the society's officers. To Home Bank Stockholders Here By JAMES E. ALEXANDER Post-Gazette Post-Gazette Post-Gazette Staff Writer Dr. Norman Vincent Peale is a man who fully lives his own philosophy. "Call it inner contentment, peace of mind, or what you will," said the noted cleric, author, lecturer and confidant of thousands. "I call it the joy of living." And he believes in it. "The Bible tells us 'Be of good cheer.' Then it savs it again. The old teachings of dismal lives and unhappiness are rot. Where did anyone ever find the Bible telling us to be unhappy?" Speaks in Pittsburgh Dr. Peale, who has written articles for the Post-Gazette Post-Gazette Post-Gazette frequently, frequently, and wha is presently editing the Lenten Guidepostsap-pearing Guidepostsap-pearing Guidepostsap-pearing each day in column one, Paee one, was in Pittsburgh yes terday to speak to the stockholders stockholders of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh.

"A goal in life is necessary' for happiness." he said. "Anyone can give this inner joy to himself by an honest self-analysis, self-analysis, self-analysis, putting the blame for things wrong on himself and not on others, and finally finding his goal. Keep Heading for Goal "Then keep heading for that goal. Don't worry about getting off the track, being switched to other things. Learn from them. Use them. Then get back on the track toward your goal. You'll find happiness." A true self analysis is difficult if you don't have outside help, he Cvetic. Young Oyler said he was feels. (At his church, the Marble Collegiate Church in New York City, oldest Protestant church in America, a full staff of counselors counselors is available to all.) How to Appraise Yourself "To find an honest appraisal of y ourself, talk to a good minister," he said. "Or an old-style old-style old-style family doctor. Or a good dirt farmer. Or a good psychiatrist with a spiritualist point of view." The round-faced round-faced round-faced minister let his thoughts overflow and those seated nearby stopped reading and talking and listened to his philosphy. "We're undergoing a tremend ous religious revival," Dr. Peale said. "I'm 51 and have lived through periods when other revivals revivals were booming. But this is not an emotional one. It is a scientific revival. People are seeking seeking the 'How' of religion. Seeking Way of Religion We have progressed materi ally far beyond any peoples of the world. But we've become inept inept in the art of human relationships relationships in human nature. "Now we're seeking the way of religion just as we did the way of machines. And it's welling up and overflowing in articles .in newspapers, magazines, lectures before clubs and groups, in sermons sermons and heart-to-heart heart-to-heart heart-to-heart heart-to-heart heart-to-heart talks everywhere."

"Excuse me," he said, "but you're Dr. Teale? I've never met you but I was sure It was you. I'm in the manufacturing business in Youngtown and just happened through here now, but I must stop and tell you how wonderful your help to others can be. "I read your articles daily. I have been inspired many times by them. I keep them and go back over them. They have given me a new value in life and life is pleasant to me now. Thank you." And he walked away. The New York minister looked after him and smiled. It was easy to see that Dr. Peale had achieved a joy of living.
