(ARK.) COURIER NEWS Buffalo Hunt Requires Truck, Tank of Gas HOT SPRINGS, S.D., (/Ft— Buffalo hunting today Is easier than It wa« In the old days—for everybody «c«pt the buffalo. They bagued one near here the other day. And the verdict of a number of reservation Indians who went along for the ride was this: "We used to do it better before the palefaces came." The hunt was held In Wind Cave National Park, on Those rolling grassy acres the largest buffalo herd In the world Some 150 Sioux Indians came here from their • Pine Ridge reservation as a sideshow attraction at the "Miss South Dakota" beauty pageant. One of their rewards was to !>c the carcass of a fresh-killed buffalo, the meat they love heft. Their leader. Chief Ben Chief, president of the Sioux tribal council, and three of his braves were Invited to the hunt, ciad In tribal regalia, they mounted their steed — a two-ton wrecker—and gravely rode to the scene. There two National Park Rangers already bad weeded an old bull from the herd, Bull Too Toueh One ranger dismounted from a small pickup truck, knell and fired at close range with a hls-'h-powered > rifle. The bullet, thudded against the buffalo's skull with a sound ns If It had hit a granite boulder. Jfe shook his heart, and loped across the hills. The rangers pursued him m the truck, dismounting time after time to fire at him. But the bullets seemed only bee stings to the old bull. By then they were out o[ sight ot the Indians, but they could hear and count the number of ineffective shots—nnd they did. "Six seven eight " Their stolid faces creased In copper grins. "Nine ten eleven " The valleys reverberated with the white cans futile bullets and the whoops of the laughing Indians. The old bull circled back toward the herd.- The buffaloes began angrily to paw the jronnd, the calves crowded close to their mothers, snd > great rumble as of n distant thunder arose from the herd. Truck Triumphi Before they could dtampede, how' ever, the truck turned back the wounded bull. He disappeared over • knoll. The Indians began to count again: "Twelv« — thirteen — fourteen." And then their counting stopped. After a 3',4 mile chase, the old bull had sunk In death like » deflated balloon. "We used to do It with on* arrow—never more than three," said Harry Jumping Bull. The red-laced rangers explained they usually dropped their milfa- IOM with a single shot, too. The Indiairs listened politely. The 1.800-pound buffalo carcass was hoisted aboard the wrecker. The Indian; then stuck arrows info ltr-to decorate it for the tour- isu as they drove back through town. Deatirig a victory drum to [announce the end' of a successful ' hunt. Back in their camp in the middle of town the Indians dumped the remains ol the old bull on the ground. Several braves began to skin him with steel knives. For^nl Stone Cutlery "In the old dny.s we used stone knives,." said Chief Ren chief, "We .still have some—but forgot to urine them " "Skinning buffalo Is hard work,' said another fndian, natty in a new yreen cowboy hat. Chief Ben Chief explained that the meat Irom the carcass would be divided among "those who took part in the festival." Squaws then wculd cut it into strips, cook some of it immediately and cure the rest in the sun for use later. As the sV.inners hacked the tough hide from the old bull, a group of Indian braves, squaws and young boys on one side of It pranced and stomped In an ancient hunting dance to the music of a tired white man's drum. On the other side of the old buh a young Indian boy sang modern hillbilly SOURS to the spectators who hnd paid 30 cents each to enter the camp. A young while girl about 12 years old looked at the bloody buffalo- only Jive hours removed from life and green grass—and said disappointedly to another young girl: "I though they were going to chop eft Its head with nn ax."

Is being grown In Sas- Katchewen this year on an experimental bnsls. By GORDON RHOWN WASHINGTON, July 25. (AP) — Even a minute Isn't always a minute any more. At least, not in the House of Representatives. The House has "short" anrt "long 1 minutes. In charge of these short and long minutes the past three weeks has been fie]). Wilbur Mills (I)-Ark). It's this way: For nearly th;-ee weeks the Holts?, .sitting us "a committee of (he whole house," has been considering the economic controls bill. Rep. Mills was chosen lot the Important Job of presiding over the House during this arduous debate. The speaker presides over the House but not when it's sitting as a committee of Ihe whole, Mills was Speaker Rayburn's choice for the Job. Acls as Timekeeper While in committee, the House operates under somewhat different rutes than while sitting in regular session. The presiding officer, of course, must keep order, keep track of amendments, substitute amendments, amendments to amendments, rule on points of order anil regulate debate lime. While an amendment is being con- .sidcred each member can speak for five minutes on it, except that by unanimous consent or majority vote the committee can—anrt usually does—put on a lime limit. When this Is done It i« up !o *h« f chairman—Mills In this case—to dl- i vide the time among the members \ desiring to speak. 1 For Instance, if the House decides i to shut off debate on an amend- ; ment in 40 minutes and 15 mem- ! bers still want to talk, each gets two ! and two triirdo minutes; If 19 want ' 'to talk, each gets a little over two minutes. Under these conditions Mills recognizes shakers this way: "The chair recognizes the gentleman from Mississippi for three short j minutes," or "the chair recognises ' the gentleman from Oklahoma for two long minutes." , All Seem I.onjr A casual visitor in the gallery probably would be a little puzzled at the difference between n long minute and a short minute-but that's it. It's easier to say "three long" or "two short" minutes than to say "two minutes and 40 seconds" or "two minutes and 10 seconds," Mills explained. "And I want to lay this," Mills added. "Late in the afternoon, af- itcr you've sat In that chair and | heard the same arguments over and over, six hours, all the minutes are long." The more lhan two weeks which the House spent on the controls bills, with mills in the chair, is something of a record. Oldtimers around the Capitol can't recall when the House devoted so much time to one piece of legislation. Clears Way for Alternation The Post office Department has notified ftcp. Boyd Tackctt ID-Ark .> it won't oppose his bill which, in effect, would require the postmiEter- ship at Texarkana to be alternated between Arkansas and Texas when vacancies are filled. The Texarkana post oflire straddles the state line. licsl Hopes on Navy Arkansnns here are pinning on the Navy hopes of keeping l-hc Oimchita River navigation locks open. The Nr.vy. wilh a huge ordinance plant at Camden, Is interested in navigation on the Ouachlta as an alternate route in event anything happens to rail lines. H mav send its views In a letter to Maj. Gen. I.f'Ais Pick, chief of Army Engineers. It was pick who issued the order to close down the three locks as an) economy measure on the ground that the river traffic didn't justify the expense. Arkansans are hopeful that the defense angle will be sufficient Justification. Some Arkansans In Washington place the blame for lack of Ouachlta traffic on industries In the area. These Arkansans say that industry promised to Increase frelsht on the river but lost interest after railroads lowered freight rates in the srca There is the possibility that the Senate will increase the 1 Army KQ- i Rineer funds sufficiently to allow! operation of the locks. Tho^e hold- In^ this vie-.v say that Pick's order closing the locks—even though not intentionally tn—strved as a nice bit of pressure for increased operation funds. * Sees Bank Funds Approved Senator is optimistic over urospecte that (he Senate Appropriations Committee will approve funds for bank stsnilizitlnn on the Arkansas Fliver. The House turned down the project. An Arkansas delegation recently r.fked a Senate appropriations sub committee for $4.000,000 to $5,000000 for bank stabilization work. McClrilan is a member of this subcommittee. WEDNESDAY, JULY 25, 1951 Judge In the, Vjshijsky Recover, and now Is a federal state.
