In 1901, Martin Konda (M.V. Konda) established Glas svobode ("The Voice of Freedom") [LCCN: sn91052337] in Pueblo, Colorado, as "the joint organ of the Slovene American liberals and socialists." After a disagreement between Konda and his co-owner Ivan Medica, Glas svobode ceased publication. Konda moved to Chicago where he reestablished Glas svobode as the official publication of the Slovenska Svobodomiselna Podporna Zveza (S.S.P. Zveza) ("Slovene Free-thinking Benefit Federation"). In 1905, then editors, Frank Perič and Jože Zavertnik began publishing socialist propaganda in Glas svobode, firmly establishing its reputation as a socialist party newspaper. Later that year, Perič and Zavertnik left Glas svobode to start Proletarec ("The Proletarian") [LCCN: sn83045377], a newspaper dedicated to the cause of Slovenian-American laborers. Despite Perič and Zavertnik’s departure, Glas svobode continued to support workers’ causes. It published the names of strikebreakers who had contributed to the failure of a strike on Minnesota’s Mesabi Iron Range. Beginning in 1910, Proletarec printed editorials which claimed that, due to Konda’s questionable stances on Democratic politics and workers’ matters, Glas svobode did not truly represent socialist ideals. Proletarec went so far as to submit a formal resolution to the Socialist Party via the county secretary condemning Glas svobode. Throughout this period, Konda held firm to the position that Glas svobode served no cause but free-thinking. During World War I, the newspaper featured literary installments, including Trije Musketirji (Three Musketeers) by Alexandre Dumas. After the war, Glas svobode continued covering international affairs, publishing headlines such as "Divjanje orkana ki je zahteval 150 žrtev" ("Hurricane attack that claimed 150 casualties") and "Nova vojna kriza v evropi anglija začela mobilizirati" ("The new military crisis in Europe began to mobilize England"). Glas svobode remained in publication until 1931.
