Cfnttoofe EDITORIAL The term is rapidly drawing to a close and soon our days at Normal will be over, and so will close another chapter in our book of life. These days together have been very happy ones. We have not only formed many true friendships, but have enjoyed many lasting experiences. Much have we learned and great have been our accomplishments. For many of us it has been a year of hard work, but nevertheless a pleasant one, for we feel that our various achievements are a most valuable reward. Due to the deep understanding and helpfulness of our teachers, we have been able to overcome many difficul¬ ties and broaden ourselves in life. It is not our studies alone, but also our clubs and sports that have widened our interests. And now as we are leaving Normal it would seem fitting to recall Tennyson’s thought: “Yet all experience is an arch where thro’ Gleams that untravelled world, whose margin fades Forever and forever when I move.” Soon we shall be teachers and so shall be faced with many privileges as well as many tasks. Knowing what is our duty, may we all do our very best, and so acquire that self-satisfied feeling which comes from knowing that we accepted willingly every opportunity, and in so doing have given something worthwhile to life. Let us all remember that the greatest thing in our pro¬ fession, as in all others, is to be keen and vitally interested! This alone can provide the enthusiasm which will lead to our success. Again may we recall the words of Tennyson: “One equal temper of heroic hearts Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will To strive, to seek, to find and not to yield.” Page Eleven

tEfje Ctmoofe THE INDIAN OF THE PLAINS The Indian of the North American Plains is a truly epic and interesting character. In saying this, we do not mean the Indian of the stampedes, pic¬ tures, newspapers, or novels, but the natural, true man. Before speaking of the ancient customs, laws and life of the Indian it is necessary to know something of his characteristics and appearance in those early days. He was essentially a primitive man, kind to his family, hospitable, cheery and straightforward. For his friend he would die if need arose. In appearance the Indian may be likened to his chief weapon, the straight, slender arrow. He was a noble figure of copper hue, lithe and supple. The Indian of the plains had straight black hair and well-shaped features. The high cheek bones, the aquiline nose, and the firm, well-moulded mouth gave him an aristocratic appearance. The home of the great majority of Indian tribes has always been the yellow far-flung prairies. Their favorite haunts were the f oothills, where the heaving swells of the hills melted into the far-distant blue of the Rockies. Here, with the brilliant prairie sky arched above them, the early Indians fought, hunted and lived. In a secluded valley beside one of the sparkling rivers of our plains an Indian encampment might have been found in the very early days. The dwell¬ ings, built in a rough circle, were cone-shaped structures of poles with buffalo hide stretched across them. Between the extended ears at the top of each conical home a dark opening was visible from which curled blue wreaths of aromatic wood smoke. Travois, the Indian’s freight car, made of two poles joined to fit over the back of a horse or dog, leaned against each of the lodges. One of the most interesting features of the camp were the tripods near some of the larger tepees. From these tripods rawhide bags hung containing the charms of the medicine men. As the day progressed the tripod was moved around the lodge in the path of the sun. The Indian is intensely religious, and this worship of the sun was one of his ways of worshiping Nature, a form of religion so common among primitive people. It is also interesting to note in this regard that whenever the Indian took his canoe over a stretch of water he always dropped some little gift into the current to propitiate the “Under Water People,” so that they would not overturn his craft.
