'-E'-IeC+JE'iC+Js'E".'EC+J:E'5C+1'-E' CUSTER'S LAST STAN D Probably no other Indian in American history stands out as prominently as Sitting Bull, chief of the Sioux. It was he who defeated and completely massacred the troops sent against him under General Custer. It is said that no man escaped alive, yet it does not say anything about the women. It so happens that a certain history teacher of Southside, while hunting rare specimens of buffalo and deer, came upon the scene just before the affray started. Here is her version of the battle. "The troops were marching by fours in single file along the dusty concrete road toward camp, tired and wet from the drizzling rain. Overhead the sun blazed down upon the bright new uniforms of the men and setting off the dull brown jackets trimmed with scalloped lace, had already begun to sink in the east. These lusty youths with their grey hair slicked down with Slicko and their pretty yellow col- legiate pants were indeed an inspiring sight to behold. General Custer, himself, riding in front in his new Model A Ford and smoking a Camel, was closely followed by Rudy Vallee, leading a men's quartet. The chorus was singing the Stein Song to keep the men's spirits up, for they had missed the car at the last stop and had been forced to walk two extra full length city blocks. However, these staunch soldiers looked forward to the time when they should arrive in camp and tune in on the nightly entertainment given by Amos and Andy. "Suddenly, as if from nowhere at all, the men were startled by the hum of air- plane motors. Looking up, one of them exclaimed---' 'Tis Sitting Bull and his blood- thirsty band of Sioux aviatorsf "He had no sooner said this than from all sides Indians, painted hideously with Pond's facial cream, and riding Columbia bicycles, swarmed down upon them. In front of the onrushing Indians, superbly riding in an eight-cylinder Buick and brand- ishing a long cruel safety-razor, was none other than Sitting Bull, himself. The Indians, dressed all in red with ties, shoes, shirts, and socks to match, and wearing blue and White suspenders, were indeed a terrible sight to behold. Our soldiers, seeing that their uniforms were put to shame, each and every one burst a blood vessel and died of envy. Thus they were completely wiped out, leaving themselves to be scalped by the victorious Indians. U 'A good job,7 commented Sitting Bull, as he hailed a passing taxi and hastened off to a banquet given in honor of A1 Capone." "'ii+1E'K+1E'iC+3E'iC+H' 37
