r»'. > . Sat' -•• 00.)Upf*f PM Melfttt Tuesday, July 12, 1960 It'l THIS IS THE COUNTRY OF THE Chippewa Indian, made famous in literature by Longfellow's poem, "Hiawatha". Now, according to all reports, Mr Longfellow is dead, so I can't apologize to him, but I'm going to attempt to tell of my vacation in the Hiawatha country in ihe language of the Chippewa. * * * ? BY THE SHORES OF CASS Lake's waters, Where the infant Mississippi Leaves the shining big lake waters, Leaves to wander to the sea. Stands a wigwam built by fishers, built by fishers of Algona, Built for outing by the lake. Here one sunny summer evening, Not so many suns ago, Came the Tribe with chief and squaw, Came with much papoose and baggage, Came to camp in wigwam small. * * * »»• u B , 1G «, CH L EF ' £ E DID PACK THE WAGON. Packed, Though Mighty Was The Feat. Packed with motor, rods and fry-pan, blankets, ice box, pounds of meat. Packed in box and piles, and suitcase, Stomped it down and packed some more. Papoose Small must take her wardrobe, Young Chief takes his bait and lure, Old Squaw takes machine for writing, Young Squaw, all she owns for sure. Big Chief stops amid his toiling, Stops and tries to close the door Turns unto his family, saying, ''Ewa-yea, my little pack rats, you must leave some house at home, We can't take it on our journey, Ewa-yea, not one thing more!" * * * THEN THE FIVE, THE TRIBE OF SIGSBEE, soon was joined by tribe of Cook, Joined by Squaw and Chief and Maidens, Joined by Doug, the Cook's papoose. Wigwams walls are filled to bursting, Wigwams floors are filled with sand. Wigwam echoes now with laughter, Screams and shouts and food demand. ?" 8 turn now to swee P the wigwam, Who will wash the dirty Chiefs all say that this be squaw work; they are going out to fish. * * » CHIEFS ARE MIGHTY, NOBLE, fishermen; Chiefs bring back the fish to clean, Chiefs tell tales of all their prowess, Our Chief caught a Northern great. Squaw and maidens clean the wigwam, All the tribe, they ate and ate, - "Ewa-yea, where does the food go? We should have a grocery store". One meal's food is cooked and eaten, One meal's dish is cleared way, Squaws sit back for just a moment, Tribe is back to eat some more * * * MORNING THEN MARKS*SWIFT returning, Of the Chiefs back to their work. Back to earn the tribe more wampum, Back for they can never shirk. Squaws and maidens stay in wigwam, Stay for four more days and nights, Stay to boat and swim and wander, Stay to settle papoose fights. "Ewa-yea, where does the time, go? How the days have slipped and sped!" Soon vacation days be over, Tribe be back in their own bed. * * * WIGWAM HERE IS FILLED With memory, Of the moon's now ]ong gone by, Of the tribes wrio stopped in passing, Of the friends, no longer nigh. Of the friends who shared our wigwam, Of the pranks and rest and fun. How the Old Squaw leaped from big bed, How she nearly broke her leg, How the skunks came to our back door, Look of lake when day is done. How the good talk flowed between us — Shirley, Betty, Mid and me, Ruth and Rosie, Parn and Bernice — I remember Celia's tree. Our dog Wienie slept in that spot; Grandpa sat is this old chair, Jane, who suffered from great big boils, Jack was sure he saw a bear. * * * HOME, SAY HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS, Home's where happiness abounds, Home is here, though it be briefly, Mid the North Woods varied sounds. Moons may come when far I journey, To the lands beyond the sea, Still my heart will always linger, : In this wigwam dear to me. By the shores of Cass Lakes waters, Where the infant Mississippi, Leaves the shining big lake waters, Leaves to wander to the sea. * * * THERE WAS BIG EXCITEMENT HERE today. The Aquatennial Canoe Derby passed through the dam right where we are, on the way to St. Anthony Falls. The race had 45 two-men teams, is 450 miles long and lasts from July 6 to July 15. They have nine overnight stops. * * * WE HAD READ QUITE A BIT ABOUT the derby, and were pretty well informed on it excepting for one'thing. We got the date wrong! All day yesterday we kept dashing up to the dam thinking the canoes had started through. By night we had given up, and we learned that we had the wrong day. * * * THERE ARE LITERALLY HUNDREDS OF spectators gathered here right now to watch the derby. If we had only known, we could have set up a pop stand and really cleaned up for there is no place to buy anything. Lots of people brought their picnic lunch, however. * * * I WAS VISITING WITH an old time derby racer, Harvey Anderson, now of Mankato. *He and his partner once won a first in the derby and several other money placers other times. Mr Anderson said that he wired the Grotto at West Bend under Father Doberstein and also worked on Sts. Peter and Paul church. * * * WE WERE VISITED THE OTHER morning by Tedo and Helen Hutchison and Mr and Mrs Harry Ireland who were staying at Leech Lake for a couple of days. * * i * THIS WEEK'S RECIPE IS FOR an all-purpose cookie. It was given to me by Bernice Cook: % cup butter 1 cup brown sugar 1 cup white sugar 1 tsp. soda ••-... 1 tsp. vanilla % teasp. salt 1 tsp. cinnamon 2 eggs 3 to 3% cups flour.
