THE ORIGIN OF THE NAME "IOWA' Iowa is a name of Indian origin and meaning. The name is pronounced with slight emphasis on the letter "I". Tradition among the Indians best known in Iowa, is that when they crossed the Mississippi River in search for a desirable location for their camp and village, their chief led thorn to the banks ot a fine river and there, within the shade of a forest, set his staff in the ground and declared, 'Iowa —this is place." What he meant was that he had found the ideal spot for a permanent home for his tribe. It was to him and them the beautiful land. One of the tribes encountered by early explorers in this region was a sub-division of the Dakota Sioux nation, first known as the Kiowas. who had broken away from their Winnebago ancestors and with the Oto, the Missouri and other Dakota tribes, had moved from the plains to the forests of the Mississippi Valley. They called themselves the Pahoja, or some similar name. It was said to have been given them when they went away in a storm of dust and snow and meant "gray snow." The French called them the Aiaouez, which was contracted to I-o-way. There are two Iowa rivers and the first good map of what is now Iowa showed the name "Iowa district" as applied to what had been known as West Wisconsin. Hence, the name of the territory and state. . . . IOWA. SNOW BOOMS WOLF AND FOX HUNTING Extremely high fox populations along with a comparatively large number of coyotes, plus good tracking snows, are making one of the best hunting seasons for these animals for several years. Still-hunting for foxes, one of the most exacting of all hunting sports, will reach its peak before the first of February. Many fox group hunts are being held in various parts of the state, with as many as 400 hunters participating. Trail dog enthusiasts are also giving the foxes and wolves a run for their money. » There is a continuous open season on foxes and wolves in Iowa, ahd many counties pay bounties of as high as three dollars each. All counties pay a wolf bounty of five dollars each for adults. Fox and wolf pelt prices are comparatively low. PAGING HOLLYWOOD SCOUTS. Talent scouts looking for types to portray weather-hardened trappers for the movies might 'well contact nine- year-old Phyllis or 12-year-old Betty Jean Sievers, two farm girls living near Walnut, Iowa. We are happy to report these two young ladles take their mink coats on the hoof. During the last trapping season they sold $231.00 worth of furs. One mink brought $30.00.
