25 Thursday evening THE DAVENPORT DEMOCRAT AND LEADER -July s, 1937. Old Age Security Plan Centuries Old Among Papago Indians ARIZONA TRIBE SWORN TO HELP OLDER MEMBERS Virtually All Are Related, Binding Them More to Oath. Tucson, Ariz. (UP) Father Bonaventure Oblas-ser, a stocky, deeply-tanned priest who has served among the Papago Indians more than 27 years, believes their solemnly obeyed oaths to care for their aged should exempt them from provisions of the national Social Security act. "No Papago ever starves," he said in explaining the centuries-old Papago custom of relieving their people of worry about their closing years. Virtually all Papagos are related, which fact, he says, binds them more rigidly to carry out their promises. Father Bonaventure, who has learned -to speak the Papago tongue and who understands the tribe's customs, wants and aspirations, opposes the Indian's competition with the white man because of the Catholic aim to teach and faster independence. Tribe Has 13 Communities. Despite the fact - the Papagos have 13 communities in their district, he insists they will remain intact. "They want it known and recognized that they wish and are able to live independently in different communities," he says. Father Bonaventure came to the Papagos when the work of the Catholic church and the fed7 eial government still was in its "infancy." He started working among the Indians at Topowa, where he directed them in construction of their first seven schools. His activities now center about Ajo and Sonoital. Eight priests serve tie Papagos now, with 15 teachers, a large staff of Indians and 30 chapels. Father Bonaventure has pleaded the Papagos' cause before federal officials in Washington twice, and each time has accomplished his mission. He was a member of the committee that actually started the reservation. Federal Aid Praised. He said the priests of the reservation have started everything but a road program. The government has responded readily to all suggestions, he said. Father Bonaventure's early-day life among the Indiana was packed I AMONG NEW FACES AT ORPHEUM I o : a Parkykarkus and Joe Penner, radio comedians, are all set to cross swords for the affection of Lorraine Krueger in "New Faces of 1937," R.

Tk Democrat Fairfield, la., July 8. A matter which was brought before the previous council was brought to the attention of the present council in order to learn their opinions on it Mayor Paul Junkin stressed the need of the city for a safe place to keep its records and suggested again that the city lot, northeast corner of West Burlington and South Second streets, be leased to an oil company. It is thought that the amount which it would bring to the city, approximately $6,500, would suffice to buy what is known as the Farmers bank building at southeast corner of North Main and West Briggs streets. There is a satisfactory safe in the building, the mayor stated. There would be room for city offices and an income from the office rooms above the main floor. Discontinuance of the use of the present quarters of the city employes would eliminate rent expense, it was said. A satisfactory new safe in the present quarters would probably cost from $2,500 to $3,000. Councilman Charles T. McCamp-bell suggested that if federal grants for labor were available, laberors be "turned loose" on the rock quarries nearby and a building be erected on the city lot with a minimum of expense. No action was taken. No action was taken on tax levies altho figures were presented by City Clerk R.'H. Spence. The monthly salaries of Walter Weakland and Dean Simmons, in charge of the power house at city waterworks pond No. 1 were raised from $78 to $85, effective July 1.

Wednesday the coon was found in the basement of the M. D. Brunson residence at 122 East 15th street. For the past two weeks Mr. Brunson. had been hearing strange noises in the cellar and Wednesday an investigation repealed that the animal had chosen the place to raise her !amily. John Kluever and Irving Vaughn of the towa Coon Hunter's association captured the coon and with Otto Klinge, game warden, checked the ear tag number and found the coon had been released three years ago. The state, at any rate, now has its racoon back and will release it again in the fall. OCTOGENARIAN IN SAUNA DIES C. A. Backstrom, Resident of Community Since Youth, Succumbs. Fairfield, ia., July 8.
