WHEN THE WOMEN'S SUFFRAGE AMENDMENT was passed in August of 1920, it seemed to many people the perfect solution to most of the country's problems. For years the gals had been crusading and they vowed that once they received the right to vote, they would • quickly clean up the messes the men had made in the government. It didn't work out quite that way. Women Voters turned out to be too much like men voters. But even if our votes haven't changed the world during these 46 years, it is possible for the votes of women to change a whole society. A good "for instance" of this is brought out in a story I clipped a while back. It was written by Sally Glenndinning in the Sarasota Herald-Tribune and it's about James Haley, United States Congressman of Sarasota. - o - HALEY IS CHAIRMAN OF THE OLDEST committee in the U. S. Congress, the Committee on Indian Affairs. In 1959, a small group of Indian women from a tribe on the California border came to see him in Washington. They were members of the Hot Water Indian tribe whose land holdings included one square mile in the rich resort city of Palm Springs. They lived in huts with dirt floors, and they sought to better their lives. - o - A FIVE-MAN TRIBAL COUNCIL was responsible for signing the 25-year land lease agreements with businessmen who had erected magnificent buildings on the Indian land. When the time for signing the new lease arrives, they will take our council leaders and get them drunk so they do not know what they are signing, one of the Indian women said. - o - HALEY REMINDED THEM THAT they had an election coming up before time for the lease-signing. "Women have the right to vote," he said, "and the records show that in your tribe the women outnumber the men." The women kept their secret well. The men in the tribe were more than a little surprised when the voters elected a five-woman tribal council 1 - o - THE RESULT WAS THAT every member of the Hot Water Indian Tribe - about 125 all told - now receives a guaranteed income of more than $18,000 a year from the new land lease arrangement. Every new baby born during the next 20 years will get the same annual income. They wanted to make Haley a full member of the tribe as an expression of gratitude but he had to refuse the tribe membership and persuaded the tribe to make him an honorary chief instead. - o - HAD HE ACCEPTED FULL MEMBERSHIP, he would have been entitled to start collecting the $18,000 annual tribal benefits immediately. It would have been a pleasant form of social security to be a member of the Hot Water Indian tribe, but it certainly would have put him in hot water with the other members of the U. S. Congress. - o - BY THE TIME THIS CQ.MES OUT Jn. toe .UDM, J jycp.ect .tojje in Algona in person! That is if the good Lord is willing and "the crick don't rise". It will be the first trip back since we moved here nearly four years ago. Each summer I've hoped to get back, but never seemed to get the job done. This seems to be the year, but how we are going to do all the things we hope to do in the little over two weeks and still allow six days for travel time, I can't imagine. Anyway, I hope to see as many people as possible - especially you. - o - DURING THE WEEK OF JULY 31 through August 6, people having birthdays include Andy Gotten, J. D. Leaneagh, Jim Colwell, David Cogdall, Marilyn Deal, Kimberly Thuente, Jeanne Dau, John Levy, Clara Shilts, Susan Nitchals, Kathleen Ballard, John Faulstich, Ronald Hejlik, Sally Steele, Mary Helen Cassel, Bertha Sundet, Glenn Strayer, Rick Watson, Sandra Nagel, Kathy Buchanan, John Gilbert, Theo Logan, Judy Sigsbee, Muriel Sigsbee.
