EXPLORING THE HISTORY OF IOWA By JOHN ELY BRIGGS Unit No. 2. How the Indians Lived 1. To taunt jilxmt rhe Mound Builders Do you think that history is a dull book? It is not always In a book, and it may be exciting. History is what has happened in the past. How can we learn history? People may tell what they have seen and done. But that would not be very old history. People have also written about things they have seen or done or learned from others. These letters, diaries, and books have been kept. Some such records are very old. Part of the Bible is history. Even before men could write or print, they made pictures and signs on stone to tell what they had done. These are history too. Much history can also be learned from the tools, ruins, and graves of people who lived long ago. This is the only kind of history the Mound Builders left in Iowa. Who were the Mound Builders? They were Indians. The tribe that Jolllet and Marquette found on the Iowa river built mounds. And when Julien Dubuque died, the Fox Indians made a mound over his grave Just as they did for their own dead. Most of the mounds, however, were built long before any white men came to America Even before the Egyptians built the pyramids, Indians had made many mounds on the hills and along the streams in Iowa. They were not the game tribes that .the early explorers found here, but they were of the same race.

How different they must hare been from the tribe that lived In the great Oneota villages les* than 10 miles away! This has otten called the Mill Creek culture. Another •arth-hut culture has b«en found oit the hillsides along the Missouri river in southwestern Iowa. OB the hills along the Missis- sippe river in northeastern low* are the strange effigy mounds. These are in the shape of enormous animals and birds, some of them 300 fe*t In length, moving in long parades toward the water. One of the best of these groups, half a mile long on a high! hill north of Marquette, contains three birds and 10 bears. Nobody knows why the ancient Indians worked ao hard without horses or wagons or shovels to build these queer mounds. Maybe it was their way of worshipping birds and animals. The grave* and dump heaps of the Mound Builders have told us much about the way they lived, but the effigy mounds ask more questions than they answer. ACTIVITY HINTS 1. See if any one in your neighborhood has anything that came out of an Iowa mound. 2. Try to find an Indian mound or a place where an Indian village used to be. 3. How long do you suppose it would take, with baskets and ton* skovela, to build a la the soap* of a bear a h«m4r*4 feet long con tain lag « thousand wagon loads of dirt? 4. Wtfat could be learned about us by studying our grav* yards and the dump heaps of o«r towns? Farm Produce Tuition F»« SPRINGFIELD, Mo.

Nearly all the mounds that these Indians built in Iowa thousands of years ago have been worn down by the weather or destroyed by plows. Yet a few I may still be found along the streams where the trees have never been cut down or the ground dug up. If you look on a hilltop overlooking a valley you may gee some mounds, probably round, from 25 to 70 feet across and four or five feet high. Nature did not make these little knolls. They are ancient Indian graves. Beneath each mound lie the bones of men and women who lived in Iowa before Moses led the children of Israel to the Promised Land. Probably an old Indian trail once wound down the hillside to a level place beside the river above the reach of floods where the village was situated. More than 70 sites of villages where Mound Builders lived have been located in Iowa. These are the places where arrowheads, stone axes and hammers, carved pipes, pieces of earthen pots, and shell ornaments may be found. The , earliest Indians in Iowa bad no I iron tools, and none used gold and siiver. They lived in the stone age of man. All of the mound building In- dians were not alike. The story of their habits and character is told by the things they left in their mounds and on the ground where their villages were. These articles in one place are so different from those in another that the people who made them must have been strangers. All of the Mound Builders whose arrowheads, hammers, knives, dishes, and ornaments were very similar are said to have had a common culture or way of living. Those who spoke the same language were related and belonged to the same stock. It-was natural that tribes who could not understand each other should have had different customs and ideas. Sometimes, tribes of the same stock also differed in culture. Men who have studied the Mound Builders say that more than one stock once lived ia Iowa. Several cultures have been found. Probably not all of these Indians were here at the same time. Yet tribes with different cultures have never had their villages at the same place. Nowhere are the tools, weapons and pottery of one culture mixed with those of another. This seems strange, because some spots would have been as good for one tribe as 'another. Even where villages with dif f erent cultures have been found close together; they could not have been occupied' at the same time, even by enemies without some mingling of arrowheads and ornaments. Indians of the Algonklan stock left traces almost everywhere in Iowa. They were woods dwellers who often located their Tillages beside'small streams just out of sight of the larger rivers. Very likely they traveled by water. Their tools and ornaments were carefully made of stone, and coarse granite was mixed with the clay for their pots and jars. Among the hills along the Mississippi river from the mouth of the Iowa to Dubuque and beyond, the Hopewell mounds was a village. These were the only mound builders in Iowa who had axes and awls made of copper. They smoked fancy stone pipes and liked to wear strings of pearls. Within a few yards of some of the Hopewell mounds, was a Tillage with a much different culture. The clay of their pottery was stiffened . with pieces of shell, their arrowheads were simply three-cornered chipped stones and many of their tools were made of bone and horn. They set up their big skin tipis on the open prairie wheree everyone could see them. On nearby cliffs they carved, pictures of birds and fish. This is the Oneota culture which can be found in several places, but chiefly along the Upper Iowa river. On the Little Sioux river near Cherokee are the remains of 12 ancient villages, entirely different from others. These Indians liveil in large earth huts located clos<; together. They made spoons and I.S.AITE1ERM Not many girls can boast that they started to college when they were 10 months old. But Doris Marie is different. Doris Marie has just moved, bag and baggage, into one of the home management houses at Iowa State college, where she will spend the next year being scientifically reared by a bevy of fond mothers. These mothers'will be coeds putting into practice the tenets of child care they have learned in class, for all home economics girls spend six weeks in home management houses" where there's a baby for them to tend. Home management babies are wards of the juvenile court of Iowa, loaned to the home management department. When the child is about IS months old he is returned to the court for adoption. Most of the 26 babies who have lived in Iowa State home management houses are now adopted' Into good homes. A study is being conducted to -"e- tennine the success of ohildren after they have left home management houses. Want Your Daughter to Marry?

Hln wife., Mrs. Ircoe JOIIOH, shown below, plrnrts with Governor lioiph of C'nlifornio Senior girls at Iowa State college more often look forward to marriage as a*"Ufe work" than, do freshmen. But that is only one of thfe changes in point of view that four years at a home economics college cause in its girls, according to Dr. Elizabeth Hoyt, professor of economics and.home management. Dr. Hoyt bases her conclusions on a study recently completed by Opal Lynn, graduate assistant in the home management*department "Senior girls not 'only approve marriage as a career, but also prefer larger families than the freshmen," Dr. Hoyt said. Most of the freshmen and senior girls at Iowa State college-said they gave confidences first to then- chums, second to their mothers. But, for the seniors, boy friends ranked third, -while lor the freshmen fathers ranked third. The foremost worry of the senior girl is her finances; the second, her studies. The freshman reverses the order. I Senior girls go to church less often than do freshmen. But the senior has. a more satisfactory philosophy of life than the freshman. "Parents who worry because their children no longer confide in them may lind their feats ground less," Dr. Hoyt said, "since the. survey showed that senior girls asked advice much less often from parents than did freshmen, but felt closer to their parents than the younger girls did." Seniors want to make more changes at home ia the arrangement of furniture and pictures than the freshmen. "Since; the girls are trained In home furnishing and decoration this is very natural," Dr. Hoyt said. "If mothers would realize this and cooperate with their daughters a possible source of dissatisfaction and unhappiness might be removed." The questionnaire was given to 90 per cent of all freshman and senior girls.
