WELFARE OF INDIAN DISCUSSED BY CLUB W; 'ASCO, Jan. ' 7.—The Woman's Progressive Club met at the homo of Mrs. William Klassin Thursday afternoon with Mrs, C. P. Morgan a* speaker of the afternoon. Mrs. Morgan touched upon many Interesting phases of the past treatment and present condition of American Indians. This particular work Is being given consideration arid unanimous support by the Woman's Clubs throughout the country. ' Today there are' 84,000 Indians In the United States divided Into 106 tribes, .and of that number 26,000 are In California. In I860, 90,000,000 acres of land belonging to these Indians were reclaimed by the government and although true American cltlxens they were not accorded the same privileges as people of 'other nationalities, not being allowed to take up a piece of land of their own choice, but were allotted land In undesirable localities, not always with water available to permit proper livable conditions. Not till 1924 were they given the right to vote, and then recognition coming only after their loyalty and Ipve of country was shown by the fact that 24,000 Indian boys enlisted during the war. In 1928 a bill was passed permitting a suit to be brought against the government to collect the sum of fl.25 p«Y acre, 8,000,000 acres being the amount of land subject to this taxation. From this sum will be deducted tho amount spent on tho Indians as far back as 1850, the balance to be turned over to the welfare department to bo used to purchase suitable homos for the Indians throughout the country. The Federation of Woman's Clubs hopes to retain -Mr. Rhodes, superintendent, and Mr, Scattergood, assistant superintendent of the Indlnn wul- faro department in Washington. It Is hoped that In tlrpe homo demonstrators might bo employed, and to eliminate tho boarding school, sending the Indian boys and girls to public schools which will assist them In a social way, as they must In time bat come a part of the state .and community they Hvo In. Mrs. Morgan concluded her talk by stressing three Important bills that will come before Congress. The blllH are tho Swing-Johnson bill, Indian Arts and Crafts bill, nnd the bill for establishing an accounting system of Indian tribal funds. i Two Indian musical numbers were played by Mrs. V. Roso and Mrs. Mark Fraser. Mrs. Zadla McNeil gave tho third of a series of six talks on Russia. Her subject was "The Cause of the Qollnpse of Religion In Russia."

One problem pupils was placed in a quartet and thereafter ceased to be a problem.' Ho also spoke on developing the personality of the pupil. O, A.

U. from an address by Doc•*-* too Achard, secretary of the Fronch Academy of Medicine, delivered nt n public meeting of the Llguo Nntlonale Centre Alcoholismo, March 0, 1932: A groat deal of prejudice and a great deal of error Is being circulated on the subject of wine and spirits, Good wlno, thoy say, harms no one, a statement which the patients In our hospitals, the Insane in our asylums, and the criminals In our prisons categorically deny. Wine Is officially termed a hygienic drink, as If, to Im- provo tholr health, people must drink more than they want. Wine, they also tell us, possesses n food value: and still more, It contains those useful substances which are active In some small doses and which are compared to vitamins. An to the matter of nutrition, wine Is a poor food and a dear food and la utll- iznblo only In small proportions. And us to those vitamins—llko substances which It mny furnish, a small quantity of wlno would suffice without taking account of many other better foods which furnish quite as much. Not Indispensable Wlno, then, Is not Indispensable to human health. It la for the taste that men drink artificial beverages which they find It Is easy to produce In the climates whoro they live. Hero It Is wine; there It Is beer or elder. Of course, there Is a place in connection with tlio bad effects of alcohol to distinguish between distilled nnd fermented drinks. Tho concentrated alcohol of tho flrRt class, especially If taken on an empty stomach, nxpoNOH one more to Intoxication than tho diluted nlcuhol of tho second class; but to contend that In the region whore most alcohol In drunk less strong liquor Is used and that tho way to combnt alcoholism by Increasing the consumption of wlno, Is too much llko jumping from tho frying pan Into the flro. The alcoholism of the heavy wine drinkers Is only too well established. Masiti to Be Saved Thoso who are to be saved from alcoholism are, first of all, the great masses of workers and among them . those'who, because of the conditions of work and life,.abandon themselves most easily to alcohol. The alcoholism of the rich, of those who are called "elegant," If such a term can be associated with so great a vice, Is of only moderate social interest. The famous flasks of our grand wines, destined largely for exportation, are of little danger to our social body. Their high prices make them prohibitive for the great numbers. In speaking of limiting consumption and production, I hear the clamor that is raised on every side. . Too much private Interest enters into It. But at least one need not Increase consumption as certain Interests .desire. It Is a poor and dangerous remedy to lower the price of wine In order to push consumption and tempt people to exceed their needs and Increase their expenses. Consume- Freeh Qrapet ' • Must we, In order to reduce production, destroy our vines? Certainly not. Many countries of the east, like Persia, large producers of grap«B, ' make only a little wine. The grapes' are eaten In their natural state. Italy has given us recently an excellent example of propaganda in favor of consuming fresh grapes. Furthermore, one may preserve the grape juice, and this Industry may in favorable places, be substituted for the manufacture of wine. The preserved, nonfer- mented juice Is a drink as agreeable as it la healthful. There must be an education of the people to convince those upon whom rests the moral authority, and who • are not always the official educators, to show the danger of alcohol; the utility of sacrificing a little pleasure. In the beat Interest of moral and 1 physical health; and to spare the laborer the wages he Is paying as a tribute to the wine merchant.
