THE ANGOLA HERALD, ANGOLA, INDIANA, FRIDAY, JULY 23, 1926 Page 3 ! EUREKA ! i "It Is the Largest Bible Class 1 In All the Wortd For some time back I had been hearing about that Bible class ot Long Beach, so when we found our-seles located there for a ten days stay, I started out on Sunday to find it. Naturally, I walked many blocks until I came to the "First Christian church" ot Long Beach tor I was told that the class was an integral part ot that church. On entering, I was surprised to find the great auditorium filled with a mixed Bible class ot ladies and gentlemen. ' Why,' I said to a seatmate, "Where is that big Bible class that t have been hearing so much about?" "Bless you," he replied, "That class outgrew this room " long ago. It meets now in the largest auditorium in the city, down on the pier. It has 4000 members now." I spent a very pleasant hour in this Sunday school, for I have grown very tolerant towards all sincere schools of Christ. However, we may differ in the things of raith and practice. I can go into a "Close Communion Baptist church" and, if they know me, they wi',1 hand me the bread and wine of their communion without the slightest hesitation for they know mighty well that while I am in their -ctiurch I am a "Close Communion Baptist"! I am in sympathy with Brily Sundays pithy declaration dui-;ng his lat vicit to Los Angeles: "Whosoever holds up to ridicule the religion of a friend, is mean enough to,' steal dead flies from a blind sender" Taul was and is right: ' I am all things to all men in order that I may lead many to Christ." After a pleasant hour with these good people. I walked westward a few blocks to the "First Methodist church" and listened to a powerful sermon by the pastor on "How to Pave the People of Ixng Beach." I enjoyed the singing of the uniformed choir ef 100 voices for they ar.g the dear old songs that all the ohurihes of Angola are accustomed t; sing. And the congregation joined l-.eartilv in the singing of these old bati!- cries of the chnrch. It always annoys mo to sit in a crowded church where the people sit mute as dams vhile the choir does all the singing! On the foliowing Sunday mornins- I srrjcht ?r.d found the great auditorium down on the shore where the r.r'glm- surges of the great Pacific rr,ir.ce their Diapason with the fvehie song of rr.en!

Then. after leading the class in singinsr more gospel songs, the creat band sprang to its feet and sounded the opening notes of "The Star Ppangler Banner' and i,x men sprang to their feet and joined in sinsing that also. Then, led by the governor, the class saluted the Flag and ioine.i in the pledge: "I pledge allegiance to God. to my country and our Flag and to the principles for which they stand: Love, Liberty and Humanity"! If every Bible class in all the land will teach patriotism as an essential part of Christianity, then our coun-trv will be safe from foes without of foes within, while this nation goes onward and upward to that high station among the nations of the earth, to which I believe almighty God has called us. under our beautiful flag!

Madam Butterfly Seventh Night I Redpath Sx&f Chaatanqna CtmemflJO Season 21th to 30th, 1926 FAVORS NAME POKAGON PARK Editor of the Herald: Several times since the establishment of the State Park in Steuben county different people have written letters to the Republican suggesting names for the park. It seems to me entirely appropriate that if any other name is to be given to the park than the one it now bears, that name should be an Indian name, and. one associated with the Indian tribe who occupied this territory when the white men came here. Some time a little after the year 1890, the last hereditary chiet of the Pottowatotnie tribe came ot Angola to attend an Old Settler's meeting. There must be many people in Angola who remember the occasion, but personally I do not remember the year. The name of this Indian chlet was Simon Pokagon. At the time he came here he was an old man with gray hair. The meeting was held in the grove that stood where the library now stands. The address that was to be given by the old chief was written, but when he attempted to read it, he had so much difficulty in making himself heard, that Mr. Woodhull, the attorney, finally read It for him, and it I am not mistaken the address was later published in the Republican. This was the first Indian I had ever seen and I remember that I was disappointed in his appearance. In my imagination I had perhaps pictured an Indian of the type of one of J. Fenmore Cooper's heroic red men. Instead, I saw a short, rather small man, dressed in the ordinary garb of civilization. Like most Indians do on such occasions, he sat through the proceedings as impassive and stoical as a statue, with a half sad, half dreamy look, that is often seen in the eyes and features of the Indian. Pokagon had, before that time, made quite a reputation as a writer of magazine articles. One that he wrote for the Chautauqua magazine, entitled, "The Wild Pigeon," attracted wide attention. In his address here he spoke of the time when his people lived here, and of what a paradise it was for the Indian with its lakes filled with fish and covered with water fowl, with deer and elk ?md beaver and otter, and at the end of his address he spoke of the rav ages that intemperance had made among the Indians and made a stronar plea for temperance. This was the last chief of the tribe that once lived here, and I believe the last chief of the tribe to set foot on the soil of the county. He was the hereditary head chief of his people, and if the park is to have r.n Indian name, why net name it Pokagon Park? Not we. ourselves, have taken from the Indian ail that meant most to him, but our forefathers took all their heritage in the land here. All we can do now is to attach their name in some way to the land so that it will be an imperishable monument to their memory, and I can see nothinsr more fitting than to give to this tract of what was once Indian domain, the name of an Indian chieftain. And in this ase more particularly so, as it would be the name of an Indian who was worthy of the honor. MAURICE McCLEW. Pretty Indian Legend Long ago, before the white man came to this country, a great famine spread over the land, says the Detroit News, in telling of the legends of Michigan Indians. One day a mother bear with her two hungry little cubs, walked along the shore of Wisconsin and gazed .wistfully over at Michigan. Finally, driven by the pangs of hunger, she plunged into Lake Michigan, followed by her two babies, and struck out for the Michigan shore. When only a few miles from the land of plenty, one cub, too exhausted to go further, sank. She struggled to reach shore with the other, but. It too, sank. She herself Rt last reached shore and sank exhausted. As she gazed out across the waters, two beautiful Islands slowly arose to mark the graves of her children. And these are called Manltous, meaning the home f departed spirits. American Indians Shields The heavy Iron shield used by knights In the days of chivalry had Its prototype in the rawhide disk of the American plains Indians. While the design imprinted upon the iron defender of the medieval warrior was symbolic, it was not magical JUfce those emblems painted upon the aboriginal escutcheons now In the possession of the University of Pennsylvania museum, says the Philadelphia Inquirer. Art alone did not prompt the American Indian to embellish his defensive weapons, but a belief in the supernatural power of color laid in designs to ward off evil, according to Henry Usher Hall, curator of the section of general ethnology of the musum. French "Independence Day The name "Day of the Bastille" is given in French history to the 14th of July, 17S9, because on that day the mob, assisted by the Gardes Fran-caises, rose tn Insurrection and destroyed the prison fortress of the Bastille During the years 1790-1792, the anniversary of this event was called "La Fete de la Federation." The Day of the Bastille is also known as the "Day of July," and Is celebrated by the French as a patriotic holiday, much as the Americans celebrate the signing of the Declaration of Independence on the Fourth of July. Asked for It Said the teacher: "Now, boys, quadruped and biped, yon know, are two kinds of animals. Quadruped, animal with four legs, such as cow, elephant and horse. Biped, animal with two legs, such as well, ah Tes, there Is a biped" pointing to a picture of a goose on the wall "and I am a biped, and yon are alt bipeds. Now, what am I!" A breathless pause, then one of the bipeds answered, "A goose, sirl" Cold Feet "Do yon suffer from cold feetT" the doctor asked the young wife. "Tes," she replied. He promised to send her some medicine. "Oh," she replied nerrotisly, "theyi not not mine." Love's Entanglement By CLARISSA MACK1K (C!yHeM.) mtxfHERE are you going, LenaT! VV asked Mr. Freer, from hla com- j fortable chair in the library. The girl flushed, then she lifted a' firm little chin and told htm. "Bob Is coming tonight, and I am going across the garden to meet him. Do yoa object, father Y .

After that "I suppose there Is danger he will be alone," said Mrs. Freer, looking tip. "None at all none at all," reassured her husband, and both women felt easier about Robert Blair, who was manager of Mr. Freer's office, and future husband of Mr. Freer's daughter. That was at eight o'clock an hour passed and Robert did not come. The nine-ten Is In; I. will ring up and inquire If anyone has seen hlra get off the train there Isn't another one until the midnight," said Mr. Freer, going to the telephone. 1 After a while he returned to his, wife and daughter. "No," he said heavily. "No passengers came In on the nine-ten excepting Joe Lant" Tou must be sure that he started for Blye before you begin to worry about him," said practical Mrs. Freer. "I am sure he started," said Lena. "Tou know, father, that tf Bob says he will do a thing, he does it It Is business first with him, Isn't It?" "It always has been," observed Mr. Freer cautiously. "How much were the bonds worth T asked his wife. "About sixty thousand dollars." Tears came Into Lena's brown eyes. "Oh, father, you speak as though ther! might be a suspicion that Robert had J been tempted by the value of the bonds, and and " "There, there, dear. I don't suspect Robert, only it's confounded queer that tonight of all nights he should have missed coming on time." "'I thought you were going to telephone around," prompted Mrs. Freer. T am you know his home number. j Ixma?" Lena gave it, and also the i name of the garage where Robert kept his car. Lena listened in agonized suspense as her father telephoned. She firmly believed that something had happened to her lover. "Left the house at seven-thirty?" repeated Mr. Freer over the telephone. "And told you he was coming down here for the evening? Yes I see then the car was waiting at the door and he got right into it and drove down here? Thank you, Mrs, Smith; he has probably had a blowout or something." He hung up and faced them, for the first time exhibiting real concern. "Robert left his boarding house at seven-thirty In his car told Mrs. Smith that he was coming to Blye, and to ring htm up here if any one called to see him. Somewhere between town and Blye " Lena had run out of Uie room, and they heard the screen door slam, as she went out, "Poor child, she is frightened about him. Horace, you don't think for a moment that Robert would "j "Of course not something has' happened te him he's either had an accident or been held up." j "If it had been an accident some one would have telephoned by tnis time." "That's so. I'll get the car out and run back along the road. HI take Lena with me," When the car was ready Lena could not be found. 1 "She must be out In the grounds somewhere. The Freer place was the old homestead that had belonged to Mr. Freer's family for generations. Ths grounds were extensive and occupied several acres In what was now a suburban town. There were two entrances : the front one, and then the garden entrance on the side street. The garden gate led through the beautiful modern gardens, and also the old-fashioned garden that had survived for 50 years. The garden gate was always locked, but Robert had a kej. When Lena went out she fled to the scene of so many happy hours, the rose garden. Here Robert had .proposed to her, and here they often met for a few minutes together when he came down to Blye. "Something has happened I can hear some one calling," exclaimed Mr. Freer. "Listen. "It ts from the rose garden two voices, a man's and another voice. It sounded like Lena's call perhaps she has found him." The Freers went running. Lena came to meet them. "Father mother he Is hers I am going to get James and Martin to help." The Freers stared at the eight before them. The famous rose garden was platnly visible and caught in the very midst of th well-known maze of rose bushes was Robert Blair, hatless, dishevelled. I had a bad cold and couldn't call very loud," he whispered when at last the men had slashed a path to the heart of the maze and had freed him. "I will have the whole thing dog up and replanted," said Mr. Freer. "Here are the pajjera eall Ilebert. Use Wisdom in Reproof .

RADIO REVUE ATTRACTING MUCH ATTENTION HERE "Radio Revue," a contest of local talent to be held on the etage of the Opera House on July 22, 23, and 24, ts attracting much local attention. Aside from ton and experience that the contestants themselves will derive from the Radio Revue, the public ts assured ot an entertain-men par excellence. In fact from the talent already entered assurance ts given that It will rival anything of this nature seen here before and the variety oC entertainment will equal a vaudeville show. Because of the opportunity offered local talent by the Radio Artists Producing Company and station WLS and the Chicago Journal it is to the advantage of all talented ones to enter into the Radio Revue. The winner here s selected by the audience by ballot will be sent to Chicago to compete in the Radio Broadcasting Contest at WLS to be held on August 7th, and will compete there with winning contestants from Auburn, LaGrange, Garrett, Remington and Decatur. The successful winner of this group will then represent this district in the final state radio broadcasting contest to be held later this fall. Everyone attending the Radio Revue here will receive one voting ticket good for a vote for their favorite. There will be no embarase-ment to the contestants who are not fortunate enough to come out with high honors. It Is expected that from the fine talent available here to choose from that some act of exceptional merit will be selected to represent this city and vicinity at the Chicago comtest and that is the idea of the contest here and one in which the public as well as the Broadcasting stations are interested. All cities are interested in sending their very best talent to represent them and radio stations are interested in having the opportunity of broadcasting good talent and getting in touch with new and promising material. Many thousand will hear the name of this city over the radio as the Indiana contest is expected to attract national attention. So it should be a matter of civic pride that this city and vicinity be well represented. - Everyone should boost the "Radio Revue." The "Radio Revue." as staged here, will bo in two groups, one group of the talent will appear on Thursday night and another on Fri day night, the three are selected by the audience on each night from each group will appear on Saturday night in contest for the city honor of representing Angola in the Broadcasting Contest to be held at WLS.

RICHARD LIEBER Director Department of Conservation of Indiana State Parks in Indiana are a part ot the system to conserve the natural resources of our state. Indiana, bo far as I know, was the first state to recognize by law the economic value of scenery as a natural resource. The people of Steuben County are to be congratulated on their foresight and public spirit, setting aside this spot of many charms and bewitching beauty for the enjoyment, the contemplation and recreation of this and all generations to come. What you have done here will be a glorious leaf in the wreath of honor of our state. The donation of this Park land a part of the scintillating diadem of grace and lovliness in your lake country will ever remain a notable deed in our state history. Not only have you enabled the state to provide for the health, recreation and happiness of a vast multitude of our people to whom in the nature of things possession of private cottages on the lake is denied, not only have you protected the common good by giving public access to 1G00 acres of public waters, but you have erected a state monmument of enduring quality for all time to come through your wise and generous action of setting aside a part of the fast disappearing, because rapidly changing aspect of the original domain. A State Park, no matter what excellent other ends it serves, is primarily a region set aside for the preservation of native scenery. A State Park must and gladly does serve its visitors. It will give ample opportunity for recreation and for healthful exercises and opportunity for living outdoors, for study and for appreciation, but a State Park does not only give to the people, it also makes certain demands upon them. It de-I mands that some primitive American j land be left forever in its original ! state undisturbed and unmarred by man-made "improvements.' It de- mands a measure of respect for the j state soil, for its past history and I achievements. It is less a legacy to i those who come after us, than a trib-j uie and a monument to those who have passed on; whose labors and hardships, whose undaunted faith and l ?rserving courage has made the state j cf Indiana and our beloved country what it is today: A land of material j affluence, of opportunity and self- enntatned strength, whose people only too easily forget the cost of present day prosperity and who in the mad rush for ephemeral success are apparently willing to trade their birthright of civil liberties for a burned mess of sumptuary potage Much as we gain from the histor- ical records of valor and high achieve - inents. much more could we profit from a stern and uncompromising Dollar a Democrat" Send in Your Check Now!

With time to burn, thanks to applied mechanical power, many of our young people follow the allurement of made to order entertainment and diversion. Leisure full of promise and genuine profit becomes idle time, idly wasted. Neither should we complain unless we can offer an escape from the nec-cessary artificality or urban existence. Fortunately we still can do that. We still have in our state spots of superb natural beauty. We have them in a variety that is surprising to the uninitiated. And it is in these haunts of nature that we can find ourselves and relearn the value of things eternal. Returning then to our daily tasks we bring with us the light of understanding and the capacity to use our spare time for better things than mere amusement. Do we want to join the motley crew of sad-eyed reformers? Heaven forbid! We of the Department of Conservation only wish, to help raise the windows of our incarcerated souls and let in the sunlight of our hills and prairies, the fresh air that blows in from Lake Michigan and our inland waters, the fragrance of our woods, glens and dales. We want to do our small part to make poor folks happy who inclosed in straight lined cities have overlooked the rich dividends which prodigal nature declares to her partners. A happy people is a good people. The love of freedom, of magnanimity and of a wide elbow room were over among the finest traits of true Americans. So it seems to me that today is a day of rejoicing, for we have succeeded with the help of our good Governor, who is ever in the front rank of the State Park movement, with the aid of our many enthusiastic friends of Steuben county, to set aside forever and anon, as a tribute to the Past, as a blessing to the Present and in all humility as a guide-post to the Future, this glorious bit of native Indiana May it in the years to come fulfill its mission to make people happy and satisfied. May the common j possession of these inviting acres i form a bond of community among our people, leading to a better understanding, gTeater friendliness and respect for each other's tasks. May this land in primitive growth undisturbed by the changes around it continue to preach the eloquent sermon of allegiance and devotion to the sacred soil of our country. And may it thereby .deepen and strength- Jen that patriotism wincli puts auty j above privilege, and the common ! good over one's own. 3 5t 3 ! 3 i 99
