[untitled]

     WILLIAM M. Doyas, official interpreter of Polish and Bohemian languages at the United States immigration office at Baltimore, says the proper pronunciation of the name Czolgosz, is “Choalgosh.” “The word is derived from a Polish verb,” said Mr. Doyas, “which means to drag or creep or crawl. Used as a noun, it means a creeping, crawling thing, such as a snake. In the present instance the name seems most appropriate.”
