I ICKES OBSERVES k 70TH BIRTHDAY Secretary of Interior Offers Advice on Living Washington, U.E -- The Curmudgeon was 70 y e a r s old Wednesday, and thinks mybe he is getting mellow. "Well, maybe not mellow," said the Curmudgeon on 2nd thought, probably conc e r n e ,i l e s t somebody think he is getting soft. "Perhaps philosophical is a better word." W i t h t h a t Harold L. Icke; --secretary o f interior, petrol- e u m "administrator, s o 1 i c fuels co-ordina- tor, fisherk-s co ordinator, etc. etc., and alsc author o£ "Th " . . ICKES . A u t obiographj of a Curmudgeon"--adjusted him self in a philosophical attitude. H said he -had finally learned NOT "to expect stone walls to toppl over as soon as he butted his heac ajjainst them. Not, of course, tha 'he expects to stop head-buttin all at once. Did the - secretary ever h.inke to retire and take it easy? Wei yes', he did think about retirin, once in a while, but he didri think-he could ever learn to tak Messy. "I've always worked hard, an I don't know how to do anythin else," he said. "I expect to wor £ long as I can totter around; ntil I drop, probably." Remembering that people who each 3 score and 10 sometimes Ice to tell how they did it, this eporter asked Ickes if he had ny advice on the subject. He said : people ought to live their own ves in their own way and that e didn't believe in giving advice --not that kind anyhow. But then, mce he was being philosophical, e gave some anyway: 1. Live your life in a natural ·ay; 2. Don't worry about the future; nd 3. Have as good a time as you an, going along from day to day, it don't overdo it. Ickes not only has lived for 70 r ears, but come Thursday, he will lave been secretary.of the interior or 11 years--3 years Jonjer than anyone else ever held the job. What did Ickes think was his Tea test achievement? He didn't know, he said ruminatively. Maybe public works maybe work with the Indians maybe the great reclamation projects, maybe oil, maybe Saudi- Arabia. Only time would tell, he said. 6 Paintings Chosen for City Exhibit Emmetsburs -- S i x picture painted by Emmetsburg talen have been chosen by the Ne\ York art critic, Leslie Powell, t be added to the city's permanen art exhibit.

No two gardeners seem to agree about results, for many factors, such as drainage, feeding, sun and soil conditions play an important part in the final result and bar- vest. In the matter at snap bean varieties there is a wide selection. There are the green-podded and yellow-poddeo fiat types ot oeans. as shown in uie accompanying Garcien-Grapn. in this class Bountiful ana Plentiful seem to oe tbe most popular green beans. Webber Wax is a good yellow type; The round-podded type, klco illustrated, may De preferred. Stringlesa and Tendergreen are favorite green varieties. Pencil Poa Black Wax is a good yellow type. Many other varieties, of course, will perform practically ms well as those mentioned. When space permits, tie pole Deans should De included in the Victory garden, for tney bear more abundantly and yield over a longer period than any other bean. Old Homestead or Kentucky Wonder, illustrated, is the most popular. Its pods Bang in great clusters and are six to eight and more inches long. Problem Met | in Effort to Define Indian By JAMES MARLOW AMD GEORGE ZIELKE Washington, (/P) -- Lo! What is ail American Indian? Congress wants to know. At present in the United States there is no standard definition of an Indian which is accepted for all purposes. Now congress lias authorized its house committee on Indian affairs to investigate the status of the Indian, find ways of improving his condition, maybe cut down some government expense caring for him, and finally ret him out from under Uncle Sam's guardianship as soon as possible. The committee has decided tha' in order .to investigate the Indian it will first have to find out v.-ha an Indian is. The bureau of the census, in making its round to check up on the population, accepts as Indian anyone who says he is and who i: regarded as an Indian in his com. munity. But the office of Indian affairs which manages the affairs of per haps 350,000 Indians, has a dif ferent definition, an Indian is on who has a certain specified amoun of Indian blood. Thus the census bureau founc there were about 22,000 Indians ir ·lorth Carolina but the office ot ndian affairs reports only 3,000. The Indian office itself said that t was a fair question to start off lis story by asking: What is an ndian? In the past even the tiniest drop f Indian blood was sufficient in ertain cases to allow a person to e considered Indian. In one tribe, whose lands were divided about 40 years ago, allot merits were made to Individuals laiming only l/256th part of Indian blood. Now the trend is to exclude individuals of less than Vt Indian blood from future benefits. In some cases ¥* Indian blood is needed. This is what an Indian office statistician said in trying to give definition to the house committee: "Because of previous legislation and administrative d e c i s i o n s my persons of lesser degree o: blood still are involved in the affairs of the Indian office, anc many individuals are in the anomalous position of being Indians for some purposes and non-Indians for others. "A standard definition of In dians, applicable to all situations would require an act of congress.' This confusion m u s t creat quite a problem for bartender because it is against federal la\ to sell alcoholic drinks to a: Indian. But how can a bartender tel who's an Indian? The office o Indian affairs comes to the rescu by explaining: "There have been many cour decisions and, summed up, the say this: It is illegal to sell alcoh o anyone who has ever been a member of an Indian tribe." But ow can a bartender be sure? That could mean this: A child, only part Indian but ccepted as a member of a tribe, s taken away by his parents when ie is a baby. lie grows up in a istant city. He becomes a man. ie goes into a barroom. Can he iuy a drink? No. owa Soldier Dies of Auto Truck Injuries Klceville -- Word was received lere by his parents-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Hughes, that Pvt.
