U0 Indian basket weavers and pottery makers were back at their tasks again tonight but the swastika symbol, for centuries past a sign of friendship . among the Indians; no longer appeared on their art objects.

The Indians were the second group in Arizona to denounce use of the swastika emblem. Last rear the Arizona national guard which has used the swastika as its official ensignla adopted the thunder-bird sign. 1 J Senate Confirms CCC Director WASHINGTON, Feb. 28. tfV-The Senate confirmed yesterday President Roosevelt's nomination of James J.
