700 Years Ago By THE KANSAS STATE HISTORICAL SOCIETY This account of a hunting trip, which describes . the •cciiiiitry month 0C Hays, appeared in Uhc Juwc'tiioTi City Union, July 1, 1871: "One fine morning, be-fore rcvcirtle had sounded from tihe quiet parade ground at Fort Hays, a party o.C four, including your coiTespoiKlenil, were preparing to stort on an expedition to Wio plains of the' west- em froJTl'ier to hunt fee buffalo. We had with us -as a guide Sergeant McPhailan. a veteran soldier and mighty hunter. . . . "We started across the country north of Hays just as 1;he morning sun was adorning ilihe eastern horizon; with sbreaks of carmine. There has been more pain in these parts tlris sea sea than ait any time within the memory of tihe white man, hence tine enltftre country over which we traveled ... was like a great ocean of living verdure. As we traveled along over the quiet •country, we watched with interest 'the freaks of the prairie dogs, whose cities are scattered everywhere tlhrough this comiparaitively barren country. Now and tJien we observed a huge owl—the feathered sentinels of these singular villages— seated on a pile of earth, at tihe mouiWi of some deserted hole. . . . "Aboult Mf past one o'clock we struck the beautiful valey of the Saline. From the bluife, three miles distend;, a bird's eye view of this country presents a lovely and somewhat raniEUibic piotee. So free does it appear from sitraggling . grasses and underbrush, that the whole valley looks as if it had been swept witJh a broom rand the trees planted by a gardener along the crooked bamks of the river. ... On tihe bluffs, sloping away from the stream, herds of deer and antelope are seen grazing on the rich grasses, and so pure and clear is the atmosphere that libey can be detected with unmistakable certaiintiy, ait a distance of four and five miles. The history of this valley renders a trip through it somewhat exciting and intenisely in- teres.Ung. The red man has opened its record by deeds of rapine and miirdeir and in this magnificent paradise hawie been enacted some of the most bloody and cruel deeds performed on the frontier. . . After dinner we saw ptentby of buffalo and antelope.. Killed a buffalo for supper and ttat night camped on th« Saitae. When I got awake in the morning, the first thing I saw alter I opened my eyes was a 'buf coming leisurely toward camp Killed Mm before breakfast. "Leaving tine Saline we came to the most desolate looking country one can image. Every few mites, however, small canyons filled witih timber breaks the monotony of the country. Wei on 'in the afcr- noon of the second day we caime to the valey of the Paradise. It did, indeed, look like a paradise to one coming across the treeless plateaus ttoat stretch for miles emywheiie. It is walled in on one sideby almost perpendicular bluffs. "The Paradise creek (which head® in, Rooks County and joins the Saline northeast of pnesent Russell) is well timbered and from Hie hiigih land as far as the eye can reach we can see it wandering like a great serpent througlh, the ca-ooked valley. Struck ; the pfta<se . . . where GenierM Cits- ter first camped when 'following tihe red man. through that country. . . . Next day kfflled several buffalo 'and had a glorious time.

Socialist partners in the gov- lernmenit would turn the center- eft coalition into a powerless blank government," IBS one Jome paper put it. Saiiagat's seven-yeiair term expires on Dec. 29. Ufflleiss the goverriimienlt loses a vote on a major issue, a mew Parliament does niot have to be elected until 1973. But there have been a succession of weak, short-lived govieraments in the last few yeais, generating growing pressure oa Sanagalt to disisolve Parliiamenlt in the ihope that an election would give the Chris- fcian Democrats a majority. Colombo's governments may ffi collapse, but until January it will have to be replaced by another govemimenit. This makes it easier for Colombo to continue in office, but new dissension 'is building up -between t h e Olinistiian Democrats, Italy's largest party, and the Socialists, whose votes tiie Christian Democrats meed to give them a majority. Demociialac sema- tors plan to try to amend . a •housing Deform bill the Chamber of Deputies passed this month. The • bill which giyes municipal 'authorities power for sweeping expropriation of 'building land, is one of the main items on the government's program. The Chiisttan Democrats now claim 'Hie housing reform cost them many of the votes they lost to the Fascists in the _ recent irteigdonal and municipal elections. But the Socialists are certain to figM any attempt to waiter down tihe legislation.

On the labor front, -tihe 180,000 hotel workers have called another strike July 1-3, at the height of the tourist season. Doctors are threatening 'a "white march" on Rome to protest government plans to reform the national medical car* system.
