Monday Through Saturday (For Mined Pip «M Call 1*5) Indian Missionary Tells of Work in Meeting at Galva GALVA—An insight into thecallty where poverty was the usual problems, social and religious, of the American Indian was brought to the women of First Congregational Church when they heard the fctory of Mrs. Percy Tibbets of Itapid City. S. D. Mrs. Tibbets spoke as a Christian counselor and social and religious worker among the Indians and her account was filled with faith and determination to make the life of the Protestant Indian in that region a little more enjoyable and to raise his standard of living. Mrs. Tibbets told of the struggle of the Christian Church in this lo- thing. Several churches were forced to close and two were soon to close prior to the formation of the fellowship set up in the South Dakota Conference which took place 11 years ago. She spoke of the Conference as "trying to follow the' program of the Congregational Church." Because of the extreme poverty of the Indian, growth has been hindered. I Speaking of the "new outlook" on life which the Indian has acquired, Mrs. Tibbets gave much credit to the Army. The Army taught the Indian that he is differ- ^ cnt. The day has come when the Indian wants to be a part of the American way of life—he is tired of being a curio. Because of the problems arising in communities whore population was growing, the conference sent the Hev. Mr. and Mrs. Tibbets to the Rapid City community. The Pennington County Council of Churches was responsible for their being sent and churches in this council included: Episcopal. Presbyterian, First Methodist, Baptist, Trinity Lutheran and Congregational, An "Indian Committee" was named consisting of two laymen members from each church, to study the problem of the Indian. At the time the Tibbets' arrived in Rapid City, there was "no building—no nothing." The dream change and Is,now following Exchange Street across the (racks.
