NASH For Alderman Fourth Ward LESLIE MOORE Reds Like Progressives BERLIN, MV- T h e American Progressive Party is the darling of Russian propaganda here— and becoming ever more so ns the American Communist Party is crippled and discredited through the arrest of its leaders. The Progressives are represented as the "peace party" and the standard bearers of all that is fine and good in American -political life The Jailed - American Communists are represented as "martyrs" nmi victims of "Truman's witch hunt. The Soviet soured on the Progressive Party for a time last year when its former leader. Henry Wallace. endorsed U. S. and United Nations armed action In Korea ' But when the party turned on Wallace H ' was back in Russian good grace*. . ... South America has few singing birds, but prides itself on a plumage display second to none.

An orderly stepped in, saluting. "Bring me those flies on regimental distribution, the new ones. No. have Sergeant Kelly look it up. I want to know where General George A. Ouster is. Fifth Cavalry." "Yes, sir." While the orderly WM gone, Carrington tried drawing me out. I told him it was usekss, that the past for me had ceased at Appo- maltox. ' "There's a Lieutenant Colonel Custer in the T. O. of the Seventh, sir. Would that be him?" Tne orderly had returned. "Yes, of course. So Custer's finally been busted back, eh? He had a long ride. Last I heard he was still coasting on his war brevet, two stars, I think. And a new regiment, too. Well, that's the cavalry for you. AH the cream, the blue-John's left for the infantry." "Beg pardon, Colonel," I suggested. "I didn't get the location." "Of course you didn't Speak up, Simpson. \Vnere is he?" "Fort Riley, sir. Kansas." Once out o€ sight of the fort, I suffered a twinge o* that "Indian prescience" whicfa was rapidly becoming a part ot my frontier character. I turned north, cutting across country for the Tongue valley. I told myself I wanted one lasl look at that big war camp before heading south. otsrmvno rr NIA stivrce, INC By nightfall, 1 , was 50 miles north of the fort, five due east of he string of camps along the Tongue. Leaving Hussein tethered n a thick alder copse, I struck out westward on foot, over the Wolf fountains. 1 had little fear the lorse would whicker even if mounted Indians passed close. Old •lussein was so used to having his nos« pinched to keep him from jetraying me on scouts into the Union lines, that I constantly expected him to beat me to it, reacting hooves up to grab his own nose when the occasion warranted. » • * UR hours brought me to a ridge overlooking tbe lodges of :he Oglala Sioux. It was now midnight. To the south of the Oglala. down river, ran the lodges of the Arapahoe and Cheyenne; to the north, up river, those of the Min- niconjou, Hunkpapa, and Brule. The Oglala lodges were pitched in a group of four villages, each village forming a corner of a large, open square. Within this square an enormous bonfire was burning, throwing its light back onto the flanks of the hills in which I hid, a distance of 200 yards. I had my old draw-tube, pocket scope on the scene. A dance was in progress, probably had been for two days. This was not what shook me. But In the center of the ring of craxily wheeling figures was a tall pole, painted a vivid scarlet. From the top of this, sticks radiated in the manner of wheel spokes, a buckskin thong hanging from each of these spokes to within about eighl feet of the ground. On each thong dangled a small, knotted objecl which at first lacked definition in the glass. The circling warriors gestured and Jabbed at trjese objects with their lances, making them dance and Jump wildly in the blazing firelight. Perhaps it was this motion which delayed me in identifying them, but suddenly mr fiance froze on one par- Qh, My Aching Back HALIFAX, N. S.

It was bright red, not from paint or blood, but from nature, and it 'iad once been tile hair of Private ames Haltoran, Troop O. Fourth Cavalry. There were seven others. In two hours I learned enough lo put a price of 500 ponies on my scalp.

It woulrl begin with the next sun. . . The warrior societies would all choose new leaders before the moon sank. . . . They would move on the fort laying a trap for the pony.-soldiers and walk-a-heaps to come out into. . . . I could have learned more but :here -'as no time. The moon, cold and blue as a cake of river ce, was already down; dawn, wo hours away. S I was about to pocket the glass, a commotion arose on .he outskirts of the dancers. Three athered ponies dashed through the ranks, scattering squaws and yelping dogs in every direction. The warriors, Ogala Bad Faces, itopped in from .of Crazy Horse Translating the hand wavings of the three scouts, the skin under my hair shrank like a squeezed iponge. . . .

Tactically, my position was interesting. A mounted group was forming below lo take the trail. Chance was they would not ride swiftly, knowing their quarry to be afoot, 50 miles from "home." My gamble was that Hussein would not abandon me, waiting rather in the vicinity in which lie had been left. (To B« Continued) STUDEBAKER CHAMBLIN SALES CO.
