h - The Journal, Thursday, November 15, 1973 uy Ken McKosato (Last Tuesday, November 6, a small group from the Amerl- can History class of Mrs. Thur- man's went to the Freedom For- um, held in the Civic Center in Oklahoma City. There were four speakers. The last was a very interesting man by the name of George Mardikan. Also, we "THE IMMIGRANT" would like to thank Mrs. Thur- man for the opportunity to go to the Freedom Forum.) This man has a lot to say to the world. His name, George Mardikan. His profession, now one of the biggest restaurant owners in San Francisco. Mr. Mardikan, you could say with= out any doubt, came up thehard way. Before he was twenty years old, the native Armenian had gone through five wars and one of the greatest famines the world has known. He also was very young when about a half- million of his people were killed by Communists. He heard of America but not as free and opportune as it is but as a strict government ruled country. Also, before he was twenty, the greatest thing happened to this man who had had a very rough early life. He immigrated to the United States. In the United States, Mr. Mardikan thought this was the greatest country in the world. Dear Reader: We have a special benefit which can now be enjoyed by our re- gular Payne County readers.
