CELEBRATION IS HELD BY SERBS Soldier Guests Speak Greeting, Get Kissed OMAHA, (/P)--Omaha Serbian colony celebrated the first day of Christmas Thursday night-- and for 32 men in khaki from Ft. Crook who were special guests what a celebration it was! All a fellow had to do was pick out a pretty girl, say "Hristos se rodi!" (Christ is born) and by golly, she kissed him. * * * « was a time for eating: and drinlun; and dancing, for settling debts and ill feeling, for catting the kolache, for shaking the Yule log and wishing its owner a fruitful land and fruitful wife. * * * The kiss seals the bargain. At the St. Nicholas Serbian . Orthodox church Thursday night the soldiers from Ft. Crook helped the Omaha colony remember the 31 oE its men now in military service. At the banquet Sophia Sinnok- rak sang, in native tongue, the song of the Chetniks before going to war, "Prepare, prepare Chetniks!" It goes like this: 'There will be a mighty battle, throw your bombs, Chetniks. "Take your guns into your hands; "From this victory the sun of liberty will arise." Over the banquet table, loaded ·with roast pig, chicken, gurabija (little cookies), strudel and drink, pictures of President Roosevelt, Gen. MacArthur and Gen. Mihai Jovich looked down. * ¥ * "He is still in his place," said the Very Rev. Dimitrije Balach of the church about Mihailo- vich. "The Serbs still have confidence in him. Only traitors are spreading propaganda about him. He must wait this chance to rise up." * * * The Serbian Christmas, observed according to the Caesarian calendar, lasts three days, beginning with the celebration ol Christ's birth. St. Mary is canonized the second day, and St. Stevan, first martyr who died for Christ, on the third. Only the first neighbor to enter a Serbian home on Christmas receives gifts.
