Our theme, this year, we believe to be especially appropriate. An unusually long Indian Summer followed the opening of the school year, bringing day after day of warm, hazy autumn weather. It is this mood that we have attempted to recreate in the 1938 Periscope.
The creation of this theme presented a historical as well as an artistic problem, necessitating considerable research. The Periscope staff was surprised to find, in browsing through material on Indian lore, an unexpected similarity between the teachings and activities of the Indian and those of this college. As we arc taught in our profession, so did the native people of America learn the rudiments of their struggle for existence. Their recreation, too, embodied the same principles of sportsmanship and rivalry that we uphold today. Even more closely related are the college social organizations and those of the tribe, of which the standards and aims arc almost identical.
The results of this research have been brought to you in the form of wash drawings decorating the division pages of this book.

The chief cause of the Indian warfare that terminated in the boundary treaty of 1825 was the Indian claims to their respective territories. The Sioux occupied the territory south of Lake Superior, west of Lakes Huron and Michigan, south as far as the site of Milwaukee, and southwest to the Missouri.
Claiming what is now known as the lower peninsula of Michigan were the Chippewas, considered by the French missionaries as the bravest, most warlike, and most manly of the tribes. About 1670, the Chippewas began their inroads upon Sioux territory in the north and east, and fought their way south and west.
To the Winnebagoes the Sioux gave lands near Green Bay, probably to shield themselves from the Chippewas, but the Sacs and Fox tribe took forcible possession of this territory, compelling Winnebagoes to go west, where they, in turn, were crowded out by the Men-omonies.
Such was the situation that necessitated the treaty of 1825, drawn up at Prairie du Chien and signed by Generals Williams, Clark, and Lewis Cass representing the United States, and by Wabashaw and Red Wing for the Sioux and Holc-in-the-Day for the Chippewas.
