Every day Miss Norton had to climb 85 steps to reach the house where she lived. Eight Nationalities In Ketchikan there was one U. B. Government school for Indians. There were other schools for pupils of other nationalities. In her grade Miss Norton had negro, Japanese. Chinese, Filipino, Indian, Norwegian and Swedish children. One or two pupils were part Eskimo. Often children of these foreign families come to school without knowing any English. When Miss Norton asked such a pupil to stand, or to do anything, he just set still bo- cause he couldn't understand her. It took her six weeks to make him understand what she was saying. The native children dress just as other people do. When ever the Indians have a funeral they think It beJter to make a great deal of noise Instead of being quiet.

OP WHITTEMORE Robrrt Brattz, 64-year-old farmer living two and one-half miles south and one mile east of Whittemore died Sunday morning about 1 o clock, after he had accidentally discharged a 12-guage shotgun in his home. Dr. R. A. Evans, coroner, said It looked as though Braatz had Intended to clean the gun, as equipment for doing the job was found beside him.

Once, when tiavellng on a boat, Miss Norton saw three old squaws sitting on a dock to make baskets and sell them. When the boat docked, MUs Norton asked how much the squaw* wanted for their baskets. The kquaws only shook their heads as If they could not understand. But she said that If you keep asking, you will finally get a few worda from them, especially If they get good and cross. Most of the baskets are bought by trade instead of money. White people usually save their old clothes to trade to the •quaws for baakeU. We aluo saw an Eskimo basket from Nome. It was very different from the Indian baskets. It looked like a Navajo Indian pottery ThU was the basket which Miss Norton valued most. We also saw many snapshots of Alaskan scenes and people.
