3 10. YIL NUTKU Türk Milleti; Kurtuluş savaşına başladığımızın onbeşinci yılındayız. Bugün, Cumhuriyetimizin onuncu yılını doldurduğu, en büyük bayramıdır. Kutlu olsun. Yurtdaşlarım, Az zamanda çok ve büyük işler yaptık. Bu işlerin en büyüğü, temeli Türk kahramanlığı ve yüksek Türk Kültürü olan, Türkiye Cumhuriyetidir. Buradaki muvaffakiyeti Türk milletinin ve onun değerli ordusunun bir ve beraber olarak, azimkarane yürümesine borçluyuz. Fakat yaptıklarımızı asla kafi göremeyiz çünkü daha çok ve daha büyük işler yapmak mecburiyetinde ve azmindeyiz. Yurdumuzun, dünyanın en mamur ve medeni memleketleri seviyesine çıkaracağız. Milletimizi en geniş refah, vasıta ve kaynaklarına sahip kılacağız. Milli kültürümüzü, muasır medeniyet seviyesinin üstüne çıkaracağız. Bunun için, bizde zaman ölçüsü geçmiş asırların gevşetici zihniyetine göre değil; asrımızın sürat ve hareket mefhumuna göre düşünülmelidir. Geçen zamana nisbetle, daha çok çalışacağız. Daha az zamanda, daha büyük işler başaracağız. Bunda da muvaffak olacağımıza şüphem yoktur. Çünkü Türk milletinin karakteri yüksektir. Türk milleti çalışkandır, Türk milleti zekidir. Çünkü, Türk milleti, milli birlik ve beraberlikle güçlükleri yenmesini bilmiştir. Ve çünkü, Türk milletinin, yürümekte olduğu terakki ve medeniyet yolunda, elinde ve kafasında tuttuğu meşale, müspet ilimdir. Şunu da ehemmiyetle tebarüz ettirmeliyim ki, yüksek bir insan cemiyeti olan Türk milletinin tarihi bir vasfı da, güzel sa'natları sevmek ve onda yükselmektir. Bunun içindir ki, milletimizin yüksek karakterini, yorulmaz çalışkanlığını, fıtri zekasını, ilme bağlılığını güzel san'atlara sevgisini, milli birlik duygusunu mütemadiyen ve her türlü vasıta ve tedbirlerle besliyerek inkişaf ettirmek, milli ülkümüzdür. Türk milletine çok yaraşan bu ülkü, onu, bütün beşeriyette hakiki huzurun temini yolunda, kendine düşen medeni vazifeyi yapmakta, muvaffak olacaktır. Bugün, aynı inan ve kat'iyetle söylüyorum ki, milli ülküye, tam bir bütünlükle yürümekte olan Türk milletinin, büyük milletinin, büyük millet olduğunu bütün medeni alem, az zamanda, bir kere daha tanıyacaktır. Asla şüphem yoktur ki, Türklüğün unutulmuş büyük medeni vasfı ile, atinin yüksek medeniyet ufkunda, yeni bir güneş gibi doğacaktır. Türk Milleti; Ebediyete akıp giden her on senede, bu büyük bayramını, daha büyük şereflerle saadetlerle huzur ve refah içinde kutlamanı, gönülden dilerim. Ne mutlu Türküm diyene! Mustafa Kemal ATATÜRK 29 Ekim th YEAR ADDRESS Turkish Nation; It has been fifteen years after we initiated the Independence War. Today is the greatest festival on which our Republic has just turned its tenth anniversary since its establishment. Congratulations! My dear compatriots, We managed to achieve many great works in such little time. The greatest of them is the Republic of Turkey, bases of which are Turkish bravery and high Turkish culture. We owe this victory to the decisive and determined efforts of the Turkish nation and its dedicated army in full unity. However, we do never find what we have done adequate, because we are obliged and determined to achieve greater works. We are going to reach the level of the richest and the most modern countries of the world. We are going to have our nation own the greatest prosperity, materials and recourses. We are going to make our national culture rise above the contemporaneous civilization level. Therefore, we should think of the time concept depending upon the speed and movement notion of our century, not upon the slowing mentality of the previous centuries. In comparison to the past years, we are going to work very hard. We are going to manage many great works in less time. I have no doubt about these aims. Because the Turkish nation has a dignified character. Turkish nation is hard working, Turkish nation is intelligent. Because Turkish nation achieved to overcome the adversities through national unity and solidarity. And because the torch that the Turkish nation has in its hand and mind on the way to progress and civilization is the positive sciences. I must emphasize that one of the historical characters of the Turkish nation, which is a dignified community, is that they love fine arts and are master of them. Therefore, developing our nation's dignified character, inexhaustible diligence, inherent intelligence, firm commitment to science, esteem for the fine arts, sense of national unity by nursing them with all kinds of means, measures consistently is our national ideal. This ideal, which best suits for the Turkish nation, will succeed in fulfilling the civilized duty incumbent on itself for the achievement of the real peace among all the humanity. Today I state with the same belief and certainty that all the civilized world is going to know once more shortly that the Turkish nation, who is walking toward the national aim with a perfect unity and solidarity, is a big nation. I have no doubt that the Turkish nation is going to rise like a new sun above the high civilization horizon of the future with its forgotten civil character. Turkish Nation; I hope with all my heart that you will celebrate this great festival with greater honor and happiness in peace and welfare in every ten years flowing to eternity. Happy is the one who can call himself "I am a Turk"! Mustafa Kemal ATATÜRK 29 October 1933
4 The Burial of Ataturk Monday, Nov. 23, 1953 At five minutes past 9 one morning last week, in the capital city of Ankara, a bugler blew a blast, and all over the nation's 296,000 square miles, 21 million Turks stood motionless for five minutes. Only the delayed shriek of jet formations broke the silence. Then cannon began to boom at five-minute intervals as Kemal Ataturk, the Father of the Turks dead 15 years this day began his last voyage. His remains were taken from the Ethnographic Museum, reverently laid on an artillery caisson, and drawn by 138 young reserve officers in a procession that stretched for two miles. Behind a military band playing Chopin's Funeral March slowly marched 80,000 Turks, including the President, the Premier, every Cabinet minister, every parliamentary deputy, every provincial governor and every foreign diplomat. Many of the 7,000 marching Turkish soldiers wore their Korean war decorations. Ten generals and two admirals escorted the coffin, while another admiral guarded a velvet cushion which bore the Medal of Independence, the only decoration Ataturk ever wore. After 3½ hours, the procession reached the top of a hill overlooking Ankara the modern city built by Ataturk and stopped before a square-pillared mausoleum, set in a 148-acre park. Up 33 marble steps, each 132 feet wide, went the procession, along floors of multicolored marble, past statues and buttresses inscribed with Ataturk's maxims and bas-reliefs depicting his victories until it halted at a 42-ton sarcophagus carved from a single block of red, black and white marble. The sarcophagus was lit only by the light from a huge wrought-iron window. There last week, covered with earth from each of Turkey's 64 provinces, the Father of the Turks finally came to rest. His grateful people had spent $12 million and labored nine years to build their tribute to him (...)(TIME, Oct. 12). An elderly officer standing by spoke quietly to a friend: "I was on active duty during his funeral, when I shed bitter tears at the finality of death. Today I am not sad, for 15 years have taught me that Ataturk will never die." This text is the translation of the piece of news published in the Times magazine on 23rd of November, On 10th of November in the same year, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk was burried in the Mausolea. Atatürk ün cenaze töreni 23 Kasım 1953, Pazartesi Geçen hafta saat dokuzu beş geçe, başkent Ankara da, güçlü bir borazan sesi duyuldu ve ülkenin her bir karesinde, 21 milyon Türk beş dakika boyunca hareketsiz durdu. Sadece jet filolarının çığlığı o sessizliği bozdu. Daha sonra beş dakika aralıklarla top atışları başladı çünkü 15 yıl önce o gün ölmüş olan Türklerin Atası Kemal Atatürk son yolculuğuna başladı. Kalıntıları Etnografya Müzesi den alındı, saygılı bir biçimde bir cephane arabasına yerleştirildi, ve yaklaşık üç kilometre boyunca uzanan tören alayındaki 138 yedek subay tarafından taşındı. Arkada Chopin in Cenaze Marşı nı çalan bir askeri bando eşliğinde, Cumhurbaşkanı, Başbakan, her bir Kabine üyesi, her bir milletvekili, her bir vali ve yabancı diplomatın da içinde bulunduğu Türk yavaşça yürüdü. Yürüyen Türk askerinin çoğu Kore Savaşı nişanlarını taşıyordu. On tane general ve iki amiral de tabuta eşlik ederken başka bir amiral Atatürk ün taşıdığı tek nişan olan Kurtuluş Madalyasının olduğu kadife bir yastığı koruyordu. Üç buçuk saatten sonra, tören alayı Atatürk ün kurduğu modern şehir Ankara ya bakan bir tepeye ulaştı ve yaklaşık 59 hektarlık bir park alanı üzerine kurulu olan kare sütunlu mozolenin önünde durdu.tek bir parça kırmızı,siyah ve beyaz mermerden oyulmuş 42 tonluk bir lahdin önünde duruncaya kadar; tören alayı her biri yaklaşık 40 metre olan 33 mermer basamağı, Atatürk ün zaferlerini anlatan sözleri ve yarım kabartmaların olduğu çok renkli mermer döşemeler, geçmişe ait heykeller ve payandalar arasında çıktı. Lahdi sadece çok büyük bir dövme demir pencere aydınlatıyordu. Geçen hafta orada Türklerin Atası, Türkiye nin 64 ilinden gelen toprakla örtülü bir şekilde sonunda huzura kavuştu. Ona minnettar olan halkı,onu onurlandırmak için 12 milyon harcadı ve 9 yıl boyunca çalıştı. Ayakta duran yaşlıca memurlardan biri arakadaşına usulca şöyle dedi: Ölümü kesinleştiğinde acıyla ağladığım cenazesi sırasında aktif olarak görevdeydim. Bugün üzülmüyorum çünkü bu 15 yıl bana öğretti ki Atatürk hiç bir zaman ölmeyecek. The source: ,00.html

6 UNKNOWN ATATÜRK DID YOU KNOW THAT Atatürk is the only leader in the world who was titled as the Head Teacher. He wrote a course book on geometry. The originator of 48 Turkish geometry terms such as üçgen, açı, dikdörtgen was Mustafa Kemal himself. There is an idiom in Norwegian as to be like Atatürk. The name of the flower Atatürk was given by Kirk Landin, a professor in the University of Wanderbit, who discovered the flower, and this flower is produced and sold by this name. On every Republic Day, the Greek commander-in-chief Trikopis went to the Turkish Embassy and stood in silence in front of the portrait of Atatürk. Atatürk published a newspaper called Minber which was published in 52 issues, and the word censorship was first used in this newspaper. There were many women soldiers who rose in rank in the War of Independence. We have only one lieutenant who went down in the world history. The Lieutenant Kara Fatma was appointed by Atatürk as the leader of a platoon of 700 men and 43 women. Atatürk paid himself all the expenditures of every trip he made in the country. While preparing the Great Speech, Atatürk worked without sleeping for three days and nights. In his most critical and stressful period in 1938, General McArthur said to more than 120 people consisting of consellors, senators and ministers : There is nothing I wouldn t give to see none of you but Mustafa Kemal with his great genius with me at the moment. In 1938, upon Atatürk s death, a newspaper in Tehran published a poem saying, If God wants to help a country, He makes someone like Atatürk the leader of that country. The President of Haiti wrote a sentence in his will in 1996 to be written on his gravestone: I died in happiness to have understood and followed the Turkish leader Atatürk in my whole life.
7 Our club was founded last year with the kind encouragement of our Department Head Assist.Prof.Dr.Neslihan Yetkiner and precious efforts of our instructor Nihal Yetkin, who has been acting as the editor of our journal ever since its foundation. At the moment, we have...members. Our major concern in our activities is our journal which we broadcast on internet on a monthly basis. Our ejournal was first broadcast in our department's web page in January Although our journal had no name at first, we were proud of what we accomplished together. In our journal, we included translations (of course :D ) with a major theme for each month, reviews and interviews. Finally, we decided our journal's name to be "ÇEVİRGENİZ BİZ". We are now making efforts to publish our journal and we hope we can succeed in this. Apart from our monthly journal, we participated and enthusiastically worked in the international symposium organized by our department and made ourselves heard on an international platform. Moreover, we also organized social activities within our department. With this aim, we displayed a good example of solidarity by donating some of our goods to needy students of a school. In addition, we organized a dinner at the end of the spring term. We had very much fun in this dinner and decided to get together more often. We see our future very bright. This year, we intend to pass beyond our novice period and make our activities more fruitful and popular. Besides, further improving our journal's content, we wish to organize many academic and social activities.

9 If the temperature of water is not how you like, the next time you wash your hands,just think about how such stuff was done in England in 1500s: People preferred to get married in June;because they had their annual bath in May;therefore they did not have a bad smell then.however,as they started to smell so,the brides found a solution by carrying a bouquet to get rid of the smell. Bathrooms were furnished with a huge barrel full of water.the men had the prerogative to have a bath first.then it was the turn of the other male members,females and children, and finally the babies using the same water! Meanwhile the water would become too dirty that you could lose something inside. The idiom don t throw the baby out with the bath water derives from this habit. Garrets were made of reeds,and there was no wood underneath them.as this place was the only warm area,cats and dogs and other small animals(rats and insects) sheltered there.the roof became slippery when it rained and sometimes the animels fell. The phrase It s raining cats and dogs comes from this story. The wealthy could buy pewter plates.but the foods rich in acide caused lead to be solved in food,therefore leading to food poisoning and even deaths.as tomatoes were often causing this situation,it was thought that tomatoes were poisonous for four hundred years. Bread was divided depending upon the social status of people.the laborer got the burnt crust,the family had the middle of it and the top part was for the guests. Lead glasses were used for drinking beer and wine.this compound could make people unconsciousfor a few days.the passer-bys thought they were dead and so would start to make preparations for the burial.these people were laid down on the kitchen tables and the family gathered,waiting to see whether they would wake up or not.this was called as revival turn. These are the truths about the British style of living that paved the way for the creation of new words that are used even today.

11 When Selva, the daughter of one of the few remaining Ottoman Pashas, falls in love with Rafael, a young Jewish man, their families are against their marriage and disown them. Together they go to live in France, but happiness eludes them there too. With the advent of the Second World War they get caught up in Hitler's web of terror. While the Nazi grip tightens around them they live with the fear of being rounded up and sent to a concentration camp. At the same time Turkey is desperately trying to avoid being drawn in to the war, walking the tightrope between the Axis and the Allies very carefully. In this new novel Ayse Kulin successfully follows through both the developments in her country during the war and the lives of Selva and Rafael in Europe. The story moves back and forth between Istanbul and Marseilles, Ankara and Cairo and Paris, to Berlin and back to Istanbul. So it also highlights the courageous work of the Turkish diplomats who risked their lives to save hundreds of Jews stranded in Europe from being massacred by the Nazis.. If I had been told that I could stop at a certain moment in my life and stay there forever, I would have chosen one two moments.the first is when I was rocking in the swing hanging from the branches of a tree in the garden of my childhood.the other is the day I first kissed the man I loved more than anyone in my whole life.many strived to write the common language of falling in love.in fact, it is quite simple: you are in love if you feel as if you're rocking on a swing when you kiss someone. One rainy afternoon in Istanbul, a woman walks into a doctor's surgery. 'I need to have an abortion,' she announces. She is nineteen years old and unmarried. What happens that afternoon will change her life.twenty years later, Asya Kazanci lives with her extended family in Istanbul. Due to a mysterious family curse, all the Kazanci men die in their early forties, so it is a house of women, among them Asya's beautiful, rebellious mother Zeliha, who runs a tattoo parlour; Banu, who has newly discovered herself as a clairvoyant; and Feride, a hypochondriac obsessed with impending disaster. And when Asya's Armenian- American cousin Armanoush comes to stay, long-hidden family secrets connected with Turkey's turbulent past begin to emerge. It is the end of the Twentieth Century.88 people from aruond the world each receive a personally addressed letter from the United Nations. The letter is an invitation informing these eighty-eight souls that they have been selected for outstanding creativity and courage in their respective societies.afife Piri, a young Turkish woman, is the narrator who, along with the rest of the members of this selected group, seizes the opportunity to get entirely away from assembly-line mentality. She and her companions, many of whom are famous artists, writers and scientists, believe that they have finally found a refuge from the monotony, authority and constant surveillance in their countries..."the Sound of Fishsteps features delicate interplays of sentimentality and cynicism, tragicomedy and farce, and introduces a modern of dreams and nightmares in the style of Borges and Barthelme. As it relates an unusual love story from the vantage point of emotional intelligence, the novel presents an example of burlesque neosurrealism and striking postmodernism."- Prof. T.S. Hamlan
12 STEVIE SMITH ( ) Life Stevie Smith is an English poet and novelist. Though she was born as Florence Margaret Smith in Hull, she was given the name Stevie by one of her friends who thought that Smith reminded him of the jockey, Steve Donaghue, when they were riding together. When she was just three years old they moved with her mother and sister to Palmers Green (North London) after her father left home because of his job as a shipping agent. She learned the sourish taste of loneliness beginning from those ages. When her mother became ill, her aunt came to live with them. She was a feminist and so they were raised away from men with her sister. She developed tuberculosis when she was five years old and went through treatment for several years. She was affected heavily by death and so death is the theme of most of her poems. She died of a brain tumour on March 7, Career Smith wrote three novels and nine volumes of poetry. Her writing style was pessimistic and the characters were mostly close to death. Other subjects she covered other than death were loneliness, war, religion and hıman cruelty. Her best-known poem is Not Waving but Drowning. NOT WAVING BUT DROWNING Nobody heard him, the dead man, But still he lay moaning: I was much further out than you thought And not waving but drowning. Poor chap, he always loved larking And now he's dead It must have been too cold for him his heart gave way, They said. Oh, no no no, it was too cold always (Still the dead one lay moaning) I was much too far out all my life And not waving but drowning. EL SALLAMIYOR, BOĞULUYORDUM Kimse duymadı onu, ölü adamı, Fakat hala acı içinde inliyordu: Düşündüğünüzden çok açılmıştım Ve el sallamıyordum ben, boğuluyordum. Zavallı adam, şaka yapmaya bayılırdı Ve o öldü işte Ona buz gibi gelmiş olmalı kalbi dayanamadı, Diye söylediler. Ooo, hayır hayır,her zaman çok soğuktu (Dedi ölü adam, hala inliyordu) Ömrüm boyunca çok, çok açılmıştım, Ve el sallamıyordum ben, boğuluyordum.

13 HİÇ HAYALLERİNİZDEN SIFIR ALDINIZ MI? Bu öykü, çiftlikten çiftliğe, yarıştan yarışta koşarak atları terbiye etmeye çalışan gezgin bir at terbiyecisinin genç oğluna kadar uzanır. Babasının işi nedeniyle çocuğun orta öğretimi kesintilere uğramıştı. Orta ikideyken, büyüdüğü zaman ne olmak ve yapmak istediği konusunda bir kompozisyon yazmasını istedi hocası.. Çocuk bütün gece oturup günün birinde at çiftliğine sahip olmayı hedeflediğini anlatan 7 sayfalık bir kompozisyon yazdı. Hayalini en ince ayrıntılarıyla anlattı. Hatta hayalindeki çiftliğin krokisini de çizdi. Binaların, ahırların ve koşu yollarının yerlerini gösterdi. Krokiye, arazinin üzerine oturacak evin ayrıntılı planını da ekledi. Ertesi gün hocasına sunduğu 7 sayfalık ödev, tam kalbinin sesiydi.. İki gün sonra ödevi geri aldı. Kağıdın üzerinde kırmızı kalemle yazılmış kocaman bir "0" ve "Dersten sonra beni gör" uyarısı vardı. "Neden "0" aldım?" diye merakla sordu hocasına, çocuk.. "Bu senin yaşında bir çocuk için gerçekçi olmayan bir hayal"dedi, hocası.. "Paran yok. Gezginci bir aileden geliyorsun. Kaynağınız yok. At çiftliği kurmak büyük para gerektirir. Önce araziyi satın alman lazım. Damızlık hayvanlar daalman gerekiyor. Bunu başarman imkansız" ve ekledi: "Eğer ödevini gerçekçi hedefler belirledikten sonra yenidenyazarsan, o zaman notunu yeniden gözden geçiririm." Çocuk evine döndü ve uzun uzun düşündü. Babasına danıştı. "Oğlum" dedi babası "Bu konuda kararını kendin vermelisin. Bu senin hayatın için oldukça önemli bir seçim!." Çocuk bir hafta kadar düşündükten sonra ödevini hiçbir değişiklik yapmadan geri götürdü hocasına.. "Siz verdiğiniz notu değiştirmeyin" dedi.. "Ben de hayallerimi.."... O orta 2 öğrencisi, bugün hayalini çizdiği arazi üzerindeki evinde oturuyor. Yıllar önce yazdığı ödev şöminenin üzerinde çerçevelenmiş olarak asılı.

Ben senin öğretmeninken,hayal hırsızıydım. O yıllarda öğrencilerimden pek çok hayal çaldım. Allah' tan ki, sen, hayalinden vazgeçmeyecek kadar inatçıydın." HAVE YOU EVER GOT 0 FROM YOUR DREAMS?

He showed the places of buildings, cribs and race tracks.he also added the detailed plan of house he will stay.the 7 paged assignment, which he presented to his teacher, was actually the sound of his heart. Two days later, he got his assignment back but he noticed a big 0 on his paper and there was a written note by the teacher : come and see me after the class. The child asked his teacher why he got 0 from his assignment. The teacher told him that this dream is not realistic for your age. Also you don t have money, you are coming from a peridatetic family, you don t have any source of money.building a horse farm requires a large amount of money.firstly, you have to buy a land, and also you have to buy studs.but it is impossible for you to achieve this. He added if you write your assignment again after determining a realistic aim, I can overview your grade again. The child turned back home and thought carefully.he consulted his father who told him that you should make your own decision about this as it is a very important choice for your life. After the child thought for a week, he got his assignment back to his teacher without any change.the child told his teacher you don t have to change the grade you gave me; thus I don t have to change my dreams, too. Today this secondary student lives at his home on his own land. The assignment he wrote years ago is on the fireplace as a frame.
