Re: Money makes the world go round, Slovak Matters By Conrad Toft May 5 - 11, Vol 9, No 17

As you state in your letter, Hlinka died a natural death in Ružomberok on August 16, 1938. The Slovak Spectator regrets the error in the article, reporting that as a suicide and would like to express thanks to all those who wrote in to point out the mistake.

However, while Hlinka had supported Slovak autonomy since the beginning of the 20th century, it was only eventually achieved through the backing of the Nazis in the form of the autonomous Slovak state within the Czecho-Slovak Republic formed on October 6, 1938, and the Slovak Republic founded on March 15, 1939 as a German protectorate.
