Hungarian alternatives in Ruthenia. Political activities of Károly Hok - ky (1883 – 1 971). The establishment of Czechoslovakia and the incorporation of Ru - thenia in that country drastically affected the life of its inhabitants at this territory. In the new situation, the Carpathian Hungarian community had to re-organize. Some of its members voluntarily or forcedly moved to Hungary, for the remaining part was the highest priority to adapt to new conditions. This was the case also of Károly Hokky (Eng. Charles J. Hokky), originally a se condary school teacher who, after the establishment of Czechoslovakia started the political career and has never returned to teaching. Biographical sketch deals with the activities of the Hungarian politician in the interwar Czechoslovakia, where he served as a de puty in the Czechoslovak parlia- ment and represented the interests of Hungarians in Ruthenia. Special attention was paid to the problems of the Hungarian education in Ruthenia. His attention to this territory prevailed also after Ruthenia joined Hungary in 1939. M. Horthy named K. Hokky as Principal Adviser for Education, but he was also a mem ber of the Horthy’s H ungary parliament. Before the arrival of the Soviet army he fled and lived in the United States. In the United States, he belonged among the political representatives of „official Hungari- an emigrants“. Here, too, he is committed to the interests of the Hungarian popula- tion living on Podkarpatskej Russia / Transcarpathia.
