To point out the feelings of the Indians, the blond war veteran explains lhat Ihe projected construction of Garrison dam, a North Dakota reclamation project, has brought heated protests because the lake would flood out hundreds of Assiniboines and Sioux. "The government says those tribesmen will be compensated and •given other land, but the Indians are leery of government promises.

"And here's another thing,' he says "Our war veterans, who fought like the devil for democracy, are discriminated against in getting loans and other things under the G. I. Bill of Rights, because of certain silly restrictions on Indians.' U. S. Indians figure Uncle Sam owes them three billion dollars in unpaid obligations, and they're watching closely a new Indian laims commission, authorized re- ently by Congress. The red men lope the president will appoinl hree men to the commission whc vill give them "at least a break.' Another sore spot with America's! Indians is a law which prohibts the sale of liquor to them. "Its not because we want or crave liquor," the tall, handsome Salish tribesman continues.

He is 18 and a gaduate of the Little Rock High school. Last night's entertainment 'was arranged by Maj. W. E. Davis, officer in charge of the Recruiting stalion. After "signing up' the young recruit, Becky said she believed it would be a good idea if more Arkansas men followed Courtney's example. "It all sounds like a good deal to me,' she said. "The way things are now—so unsettled and all—il would give Ihe boys a good job wilh steady pay. It's patriotic, too, because we need a strong army and navy. I'm scared of the war talk now going on.'
