Outwear Underwear Has Arrived By PATRICK E. O'KEEFE And It's Far From Cheap— Medicine Men Brew Magic in Arizona M-:\V VOHK iAI"M _ (iirls 1 Throw away those old qualms about being scon in your under- \voar. Next spring and summer it may be the ultrachie outdoors thing to do, Outerwear _ underwear hat definitely arrived, says a new line of airy lingerie shown by Formfit-Rogers and featuring the splashy, color • swirling latest by Emilio Pucci. As sportswear and cocktail dress designers wow the fashion world with little semisheer things for home and office which they say must be worn without bras, the bra makers are getting ready to strike back. "It comes from the ease and comfort and freedom that's part of the decade we're living in," says young Ann Fulton, a trim brunette fashion commentator for the Formfit showings. "Girls are not bothering with more than the ban* essentials." Very striking were two-piece lemon yellow pajamas—flouncy upper part., wide-bottom pants and bare midriff—and Pucci's willowy sleeveless "robe" of nylon tricot that ends just below the thighs. The robe was described as "something to answer the doorbell in." The Pucci line goes on the racks in March. ;, Formfit is tempting those who like to travel light on weekends "with a matching group of shift, bra and bikini shorts in green with white polkadots that comes with a drawstring tote bag. A girl could start out with the shift over the bra and later put the shift in the tote bag on arrival and go sunning or even swimming. It's still lingerie, Miss Fulton insists, and will be sold in the intimate apparel section, (Second of a Series.) FONT DKFIANCK. Alt/,. - iNKAl — Tony Tsosio. age f>2. is a totally blind, arthritic, il-i literate, anemic, senile and un-, imposing Navajo Indians. He is also a very important , Navajo Indian. He's a medicine man. As such, old Tony Tsosie is a priest, a prefect, a witch doctor, a pain healer and a pain preventer to thusands of believing people on this j reservation. They respect him. They fear him. | Whwi someone is sick, they' call Tony. When someone is | drafted into the Army, they call j | Tony. When someone is bleed- j ing, ulcerated, aching, in need of money, love, food or job. they call gla/cd-cyed Tony Tsosie. And for a fee, Tony comes. He comes with charcoal from the scar of a lightning-struck tree. He comes with tail feathers from an eagle. He comes with an assortment of herbs, berries, potions, fumiganls and other implements of his craft. And he goes to work. He mixes an emetic composed of buckthorn, limberpine. bearherry. wild currant, juniper and blue spruce. He gives a portion of it to each patient. They drink it. Then they vomit in great, large torrents. "Whu-hu-whu," Tony chants. It goes on and on. If the patients arc rich and can afford as much as $1,000, Tony will chant and rant for nine full days. If the patients are more frugal, Tony will cut the whole thing off after % hours. But whatever the time consumed, the results are invariably the same — some patients get well, some don't. Those whe do credit Tony and spread the word. Those who don't are in no position to complain. To a more important degree, however, the result of all the vomit and vehemence of Navajo religion is to perpetuate old, outdated customs in this Indian nation and 1 hereby perpetuate old and outdated privation. The point, is a crucial one in Indian affairs today. 6 Times Herald, Carroll, la. Wednesday, Nov. 22, 1967 "We are caught between the old and new," says Navajo official Peter MacDonald. "We want to have the best of modern society — the television and the automobiles — but we also want to cling to our old philosophies." MacDonald is his own best example. Bred in the old thought, he once studied to become a medicine man. A college education eclipsed that dream and he has since become chief of tribal poverty programs. "I still go to the medicine man now and then," he admits, "but only because my mother wishes it. She believes in the Navajo tradition and would be disappointed if I just ignored it altogether." MacDonald is not the only one caught, in this Navajo split. Many of the young and educated simply can't accept the historic ways any longer. "How," asks one, "can anybody expect me to believe in not in bcachwear. Pucci's '07 spring lingerie colors in apricot, lime and char- coat, with prices up to $60 for some outgoing pajamas, begged not to be hidden under dresses or suits. "Some way-out things in there," said one little lady buyer leaving the show. "But then I guess we're living in a way-out world."

Buffalo Are on Way Back in the West VALENTINE, Neb. (AP) — The Oglala Sioux Indians pray in the "Song of the Messiah" that the vanished buffalo herds shall once more thunder across the vast prairies of mid-America. L. R. Houck of Pierre, S.D., president of the newly formed National Buffalo Association believes the prayer may be answered —- to a limited extent. "Buffalo are definitely on the way back," he recalled at a public auction here of the giant animals. "More and more ranchers are raising theme and there will be an increasing consumer demand for buffalo meat." Houck and buyers from 10 states — from Georgia to Oregon — paid premium prices at the auction for 49 head of buffalo at the 19,000-acre Fort Niobrara National Wildlife Refuge. This was the first such auction ever held by the Fish and Wild- FAREWAY IS YOUR BUDGET HELPER FARMBEST FULLY COOKED PICNICS 6 to 8 Lbs. Lb.

They believe that "old thought" is strangling most of today's plans to improve Navajo existence. They believe old customs are principal reasons for continued reservation pestilence. Some examples: The tribe, historically, 5s clannish and families prefer to live off by themselves instead of grouped together in modern communities. The tribe is religiously orientated to unsanitary mud hogans and, as a result, many are reluctant to move into any kind of conventional home. The tribe is psychologically fatalistic. Many are against even slight improvement, and tend to accept their plight as God's will. The consequence of each of these examples is obvious. Washington has been wailing for decades that little can be done for Indians until they decide to step into the pres- ent and accept technological assistance. Says one official: "They've got to meet us half way." But, in fairness, the old-line Navajos have their side, too. They feel that traditional philosophies are necessary for tribal members to retain a positive identity and a fixed position in the world. They further feel that Navajo culture, however silly to white men, is the final thread of dignity Indians retain. To abandon it, they say, would be to offer up a final and total surrender to conquerors. Therfore, they remain stubborn. White authorities don't like it, but they accept it. In fact, now and then they even understand it. One physician here tells of a time he had a sickly Indian woman who, despite all drugs and care, refused to get well. Finally, in desperation, Tony Tsosie was called in. Y u p. Four eagle feathers later, the woman recovered. (NEXT: Despised Traders.) DORM THAT DAD DESIGNED CORPUS CHRISTI, Tex. (AP) — A set of twins who are freshmen at the University of Corpus Christi may have the most unusual reason yet for selecting a college; their father designed the dormitory they live in. The boys, John and James Tucker, are sons of H. Arthur Tucker of Tulsa, Okla. I He is chief architect of Tandy ! Industries Inc., the construction arm of CIT Educational Buildings Inc., which provided the university with a new, 144! bed dormitory for the start of the school year. They decided to enroll at UCC because of its business courses, recreational advantages and that dormitory that Dad designed. Tony Tsosie ... an unimposing illiterate of 62, is a very important man in Navajo country. He's a medicine man and his medicine is far from cheap. life Service of the Department of the Interior. As more than 200 spectators blinked in amazement, the former kings of the prairies commanded top prices. Houck bought 23 head at prices ranging from $675 to $900 for heifers and $300 to $450 for bulls. He plans to add them to his personal herd of 1,500. Ermane Brawley, county tax collector at Ellington, Mo., paid the day's top price, $925 for a year-old buffalo cow and $750 for another to "establish a herd." All told, the sale brought $22,400. The money goes ot the Treasury Department. At these prices, buffalo enthusiasts begin to see visions of a comeback. They concede, however, there may never be a return to the days when the prairies ran black with mighty herds. Houck says the v a n i s h e'd herds already are back. The 80 j members of his association, he says, own about 10,000 head. He estimates the total buffalo population in the United States i today at 15,000 and says it is on the increase. [ i H* foresees the day when buffalo meat will play an increasing role on the nation's ! dinner menu. "Young buffalo, like these today, make a tremendous mar- j, ket," he said. "The trouble with the consumer taste for buffalo in past years has been that the usual source at barbecues and special dinners was an old herd cull. I i "Eaters looked on it as a novelty and didn't particularly take to the meat. "But get a young buffalo in its prime and, let me tell you, you won't find any meat better. A T-bone — and you get one more from a buffalo carcass — is tremendous. "We had prime buffalo at a banquet the other night at Huron, S.D., and'believe me, it got a lot more favorable comment than the ' pheasant they also served." Buffalo enthusiasts claim buffalo range better than domestic cattle and are not bothered by extreme heat or cold. They say they are a greater converter of feed than domestic animals. "They'll put on five pounds a day on less consumption of feed than a domestic steer," Houck says. "And the butchered carcass will dress out with more usable meat than the usual 50 ', to 60 per cent in a domestic steer." j Constitutional Referenda Scheduled in Nine States By KENT ZIMMERMAN (Associated Press Writer) Winds of change are in the air around stale capilals this year, and the end result could be some new state constitutions and many more amendments to the basic charters. State constitutions have come under fire for being antiquated, too wordy or too frequently amended. Many state legislators apparently agree, and constitutional referenda will be held in at least nine states during the next 12 months. The proposed revisions range from minor amendments affecting only one county to new constitutions i In several states—where revisions have not been approved by legislatures—there are movements to begin consideration of updating the documents next year. Voters in Alabama will decide Dec. 5 on 16 constitutional amendments dealing primarily with local issues and state bond issues. A constilulional convention convenes Dec. 1 in Pennsylvania and the convention's proposals will go to the voters in April's presidenlial primary. The convention is limited to four issues: taxation and finance, reapportionmertt, local government and judiciary. Proposals for costitutional change will be on the ballot in seven states in November 1968. The states are Montana, Michigan, Idaho, New Hampshire, Colorado, Nebraska and Massachusetts. The Michigan Legislature is in special session to implement provisions of its 3-year-old con- stitution, and next November voters will decide on a proposal to delete a ban on graduated state and local income taxes. Massachusetts voters will vote on three proposals approved this year at joint legislative constitutional sessions. They are a graduated income* tax, gubernatorial disability and increasing the time allowed a governor to consider- enacted bills from five to 10 days. Colorado residents will vote on an amendment proposing election of a governor and lieutenant governor by a single vote. The California Constitution Revision Committee is expected to have a proposed revision of about one-third of the constitution ready to put on the ballot in 1968. The committee's revision of the first third of the California constitution was approved by the voters in 1966. , . HEIRES ELECTRIC have General Electric Gifts that keep on giving all year long.
