Abstract: The “Lithuanian Tautininkai” (Nationalists) was a strong political party in Lithuania in the 1930s. It was a “pro patria” party with a strong nationalistic ideology and vision of Lithuania as the national state of the Lithuanian people. After the coup in 1926, they became the ruling party and their leader Antanas Smetona became the President of Lithuania. In the 1930s the Tautininkai had their own attitude toward the national state of Lithuania that could not be realized without the support of the Lithuanian people. Trying to achieve this goal, the Tautininkai had to propagate their ideas among Lithuanians very actively. The official governmental press, such as „Lietuvos aidas“ (Lithuanian echo), „Jaunoji karta“ (Young generation), and „Tėvų žemė“ (Land of fathers) had to do this. These newspapers reflected the attitude toward the national state and the role of different social and national groups in the political, social, economical or cultural life. The Tautininkai press also used some propagandistic instruments and linguistic constructions that were intended to improve the social effect of the official propaganda
