"We have come a long way in only 20 years," said Chino proudly. "But our average cash income is only about $800. We are still in the lower income bracket, in terms of the ' general American standard of living. Our big problem is unemployment. We have about 150 without jobs." The Apache people, numbering some 7,500, dwell on four reservations—two in New Mexico, two in Arizona. The Mescalero tribe here feels it is the most progressive. "The reservation population fell ', to about 600 or 700 after the flu I epidemic in the First World War," said Chino. "But now it is up to 1,200, and increasing at the rate of about 2 per cent a year." Some 85 per cent of the Mcs- caleros now speak English, about the same number are Christian. Al though Chino wants to preserve some of the dying customs and arts of his people, he feels that only , through more education can they acquire the knowledge and civilized skills they need to survive in the future.
