The pleated sleeve—besides being flattering—allows for plenty of action and the paneled skirt with its roomy pockets has a way with it, If the hips are just a bit too generous f A neat pin-stripe cotton or tailored geometric design would be excellent.

Charlie—Oh, I know a much bettor plac* to park than that Editor's Note: The fourth Friday In Septem- >er Is celebrated In many states as American ndian day "In recognition of the contribution of the red man to our national tradition." In his article, appropriate to the celebration of that day, Is told the story of some of the Indians whose names appear on the white man's maps to perpetuate their fame. By ELMO SCOTT WATSON F THE number of places .which bear his name is any criterion, then Osceola of the Seminoles was the greatest Indian In American history. For no other red man has thus bfien honored so many times. It seems appropriate enough thai the state of Florida should have both an Osceoln county and a vll lage of Osceola, for it was down in the' Everglades country that he wrote his name in letters of blood a century ago. But why should 12 other commonwealths similarly perpetuate his name? Is It because the white men, remembering how they made the Semlnole leader the victim of one of the blackest acts of treachery on record, have tried to make tardy amends to his memory by dotting the map with his name? Or is It more likely that Its musical syllables are responsible for there being towns in Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Dakota and Wisconsin, a county in Iowa and both a town and a county in Michigan nnd Nebraska, all bearing the name of Osceola? Osceola was born on the Tallapoosa river In the Creek country in 1803. His paternal grandfather was a Scotchman who married an Indian woman and this Caucasian strain gave to his grandson not only a strikingly light complexion but also such a gift for leadership that his tribesmen accepted him as a head warrior even though he was not a chief either by descent or by formal election. He first rose to prominence in 1832 when a part of the Seminoles signed the Treaty of Payne's Landing by -which they agreed to cede the remainder of their lands In Florida (they had given up the most of them In 1823) and remove across the Mississippi. Next to Osceola the Indian whose fame is thus perpetuated most frequently is the heroine of one of our favorite legends—Pocahontas. Again It Is a case of our failure to Immortalize the real name of the person we would thus honor. For the real name of Pocahontas was Matoaka or Matowaka, also misspelled Matoka and Ma- toaks. But Powhatan, chief of a group of Vlr- inla tribes at the time of the settlement ot Jamestown, had a pet name for his favorite daughter. Pokahantes, "the playful one," he called her, so the English settlers soon were referring to this "Indian princess" as Pocahontas. Although some historians are doubtful If the romantic episode of her rescue of Capt. John Smith from death ever took place, that story seems to be an Imperishable part of our national tradition. If indeed It did take place then her act shines all the more brightly by contrast with the treachery which she experienced later. For she was lured on board the ship of Captain Argall in the Potomac, carried off to Jamestown and afterward taken to Powhatan's village, where the chief had to ransom his "dearest daughter." The next year Pocahontas, who had been converted to Christianity and baptized under the name of "the Lady Rebecca," was married to John Rolfe and accompanied him to England where she died of smallpox In 1617. Besides being immortalized In two famous paintings and a statue near Jamestown, her fame Is perpetuated in towns In Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Tennessee and Virginia, In a county In West Virginia and In both a town and a county In Iowa. Another Iowa town and county also preserve :he name of an Indian more Intimately connected with the history of that state than was either Osceola or Pocahontas. Among his own people, the Sauk and Fox Indians, he was known as Ma'katawlmesheka'kaa, "the big black sparrow hawk." But the white man remembers him as another red man who tried to hold back the tide of white settlement, as the vanquished leader In the Black Hawk war of 1832. Black Hawk was born near the Rock river In Illinois In 1707, became a war leader against the tribal enemies of the Sauk, fought on the side of the British in the War of 1812 and at the close of that war signed the treaty by which his people agreed to give up their home lands and move across the Mississippi. Then, declar- ng that he had been deceived regarding the terms of the treaty, he refused to move and roops were sent to drive him out. After several battles he suffered a crushing defeat In Wisconsin, was captured by Winnebago allies of the whites and taken as a prisoner of war to Fortress Monroe, Va. After his release he made his home n Iowa where he died October 8, 1838. Besides the town and county in Iowa which bear his name there are also towns of Black Hawk In Illinois, Indiana, South Dakota and Colorado, although the latter perpetuates the name of a Ute chief by that name, rather than that of the Sauk leader. Long before Black Hawk tried to resist the advance of the white men, two other chiefs had also tried and failed. One of them wag Pont lac, the Ottawa, whose famous "conspiracy" against the English in 1763 came so near being a success, and the other was Tecumseh, the Shawnee. Both of them were born in Ohio—Pontiac on the shores of the Maumee river la 1720 and Tecumseh on the Mad river In 1768—but there Is no town in the Buckeye state to recall the name of either. Pontiac was murdered by a Kaskaskla Indian at Cahokla, ill., in 1768, and Illinois baa a PUSHMATAHA town of Pontiac, as has Michigan, where he won his greatest fame by his long siege of the little frontier post of Detroit. Tecumseh's real name was Tlkamthl or cumtlm, meaning "one who springs or leaps," and he was also known as Crouching Panther or Shooting Star. After his conspiracy to unite all the tribes in the Middle West against the whites was overthrown by the premature battle of Tlppecanoe In Indiana, Tecumseh joined the British and was killed October 5, 1813 at the Battle of the Thames in Canada. Indiana, the center of his activities, has no municipality named after him, but there are towns of Tecumseh In Alabama, Kansas, Michigan and Okla homa. Considering their Importance In the history of New York, It would seem appropriate if the names of Red Jacket and Hiawatha would appear on the map of that state—Red Jacket, the great Seneca chief and orator (known as Sn-go- ye-wat-ha, "he who causes them to be awake"), and Hiawatha (Halon'hwa'tha, "he makes rivers"), chief of the Mohawks and one «f the founders of the famous League of the Iroquols, the Confederation of the Five Nations. But the fact Is that neither name appears there. It has remained for Michigan and West Virginia to immortalize Red Jacket thus and for Kansas, Michigan and Utah to do the same for Hiawatha. In the case of the latter, however, the naming of these towns was more likely due to Henry Wadsworth Longfellow than to the fact that the Mohawk chief deserved to be remembered as the founder of the first successful "League of Nations." Another character In Longfellow's poem, the Ittle Hiawatha's grandmother, Is immortalized in the towns of Nokomis In Alabama and Illinois, and Minnesota has the Mlnnehaha falls to recall the beautiful maiden who became the bride of Hiawatha. As for other cases of "white man honors them" jy naming his villages, towns, cities or counties after Indian men and women, here Is a partial 1st of the most outstanding examples; Aliquippa, Pa.—For Allaqulppa, a Delaware woman sachem who lived in 1755 near the mouth of the Youghioheny river in Allegheny county.

Lesson for September 22 JAMES (A GREAT CHRISTIAN LEADER) LESSON TEXT —Acts 15:1-21; James 1:1-17. GOLDEN TEXT—Blessed Is the man that endureth temptation; for when he hath been approved, ho shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord promised to them that love him.—James 1:12. PRIMARY TOPIC—What James Tells Us to Do. JUNIOR TOPIC—James' Motto for Juniors. INTERMEDIATE AND SENIOR TOPIC—How to Meet Life's Tests, YOUNG PEOPLE AND ADULT TOPIC—The Message, of James for Today. Three Individuals by the name of James are mentioned in the New Testament. In all probability this James was the brother of the Lord and the writer of the Epistle which bears his name. I. James Presiding at a Church Council (Acts 15:1-21). I. The controversy in the church at Antioch (vv. 1-5). A most 'difficult problem confronted the church, threatening Its disruption Into a Jewish and Gentile division. It was not a question of the admission of the Gentiles Into the church. That had bean settled some years before when Peter received Cornelius and his household. The question now was, on what ground could they be received? Should Gentile believers be required to keep the Mosaic law as 1 a condition of salvation? In order to settle this matter, Paul and Barnabas were sent to Jerusalem for the decision of the mother church. II. The Deliberation of the Council (vv. 6:21). 1. Peter speaks (vv. 6-11). He argued that God had borne witness to the acceptance of the Gentiles by giving the Holy Spirit to them as unto the Jews. Since God had not put a difference, It would be folly for them to do so. 2. Paul and Barnabag rehearsed their experience (v, 12). They told how that God had set his seal of approval on the preaching of salvation by grace through faith. 3. The argument of James (vv. 14-21). He took the fact declared by Peter and showed how It harmonized with prophecy- (Amos 9:1115). He showed that the reception of the Gentiles was not In conflict, but In harmony with God's plan. He made clear God's plan as follows: a. To take, out from among the Gentiles a people for his name (v. 14). This Is what Is now being done by the calling out of the church. b. After the church Is completed, Israel will be converted and restored to their lan'd by the Lord himself at his return (vv. 1C, 17). c. This will be followed by the conversion of the world through the agency of converted Israel (v. 17; cf. Rom. 11:15). Having shown that there was no conflict with the Scriptures rightly divided, he gave his judgment that the Gentiles should not be troubled with the things that are Jewish, but should be warned against the perils of heathenism, such as meat offered to Idols, fornication, and blood. 4. The decision (vv. 22-29). The mother church unanimously en- Housewife 1 , A Paint Hint opened ? «"'*:*:> fl9 rnu. _. . "US '<»> upside do w a c before you Intend . ao rf "fift*ft«!j*.

This decision was 'duly delivered to the church at Antioch and was received with rejoicing. III. James Giving Counsel to Christians (James 1:1-17). 1. Concerning trials (vv. 2-17). a.. The Christian's attitude toward them (w. 2-4). They were to meet them joyfully because of their beneficial effects. Trials reveal fidelity, and by their efforts develop the grace of patience. b. The Christian's supreme need in these trials (vv. 5-8). It is wisdom to meet them intelligently. He makes clear that the source of this wisdom Is in God and that the means of gaining it Is asking in faith, ana the very liberality of God la the guarantee that the needed supply will be provided. c. The rich and the poor are sharers alike In affliction (vv. 9-11). Frequently ^the poor man thinks that the rich are free from testings, whereas they are usually more severely tested. d. The blessed reward of enduring the testing (v. 12). The one who faithfully endures the temptation shall be awarde'd a crown of life. e. The source of temptation (vv. 13-17). Temptations spring out of human desire. They do not come from God, Sin is not necessarily the desire, but the gratifying of it improperly. When one is thus led away by his natural desires, sin is conceived which brings forth death. In such case, sin }g the gratification of a right desire in a wrong way. ;= BEST BY 10,000 TESTS REFUSE SUBSTITUTES 0/lf/ OTHER INSECTS COLLECT SPECIAL NAMES rOSW pay. No red tape.
