“Wo Akupasika Ntchitu Iyi”

KWA mazuŵa nganandi, kwenga mphepu ndi vuwa. Kweni pa Mandi, pa 1 September, 1919, kwenga lumwi ndipu kungufunda. Ndi musana, ŵanthu ambula kukwana 1,000 anguwungana muholu kuti avwisiyi chigaŵa chakwamba cha unganu wo unguchitikiya ku Cedar Point, Ohio, mu charu cha America. Holu iyi yikwana ŵanthu 2,500. Kufika mazulu, kunguza ŵanthu anyaki akujumpha 2,000. Ŵanthu yaŵa anguza pa boti, pa galimotu ndipuso pa sitima. Pa Chiŵi, mzinda ungukuwa ukongwa mwakuti anguchimaliziya unganu kubwalu kwa holu pasi pa vimiti.

Likondwa lo ŵanthu ŵenga nalu pa unganu uwu linguphara kutowa kwa malu ngo anguchitiyapu unganu. Nyuzipepala yinyaki yingukamba kuti, “Ŵanthu wosi ŵenga akujipereka, kweni akukondwa ukongwa.” Akusambira Bayibolu angukondwa ukongwa kuŵa pamoza ndi abali. Ivi venga viyo chifukwa angukumana ndi masuzu nganandi nge kususika pa nyengu ya nkhondu, kuleka kukoliyana mumpingu, kujalika kwa Beteli ya ku Brooklyn, kumangika kwa abali ndi azichi anandi chifukwa cha Ufumu, kusazapu abali 8 wo alongozanga.

Mazu ngakuti “GA” ngang’anamuwanga The Golden Age, magazini ngafya ngakupharazgiya. *

Awona kuti ndi udindu wawu kukambiya ŵanthu vinthu vamampha vo ve kunthazi. Njimoza mwa ntchitu yo Chiuta wakuŵapasa.”
