THE INDIAN CAME OF BAIL OR TOLIN
For three hundred years, and perhaps more, the Indians of America have indulged in the game of ball—Tolik, as it is known—tho basic features of which have practically remained the same, and in the mutations of time only slight changes have occurred and those changes caused by the passing of the red man from savagery into civilization.
How’ever. slight changes have been made in the game of Tolik in the last hundred years. It is still the amusement of the full bloods, whether Creek, Seminole, Choctaw or Chickasaw’, and when played by him represents, as nearly as possible. the exact conditions of a hundred years ago. He glories still in the achievements of his ancestors. The ways of the white man appeal to him only so far as they do no dishonor or disgrace to his Indian blood.
The white man’s game of ball is, to him, a very mild and tame a rn u s e m e n t. Physical prowess, astuteness, fleetness of foot, endurance and bravery are all combined in Tolik and are his natural propensities. He feels no pleasure in the jibes and jeers of the “rooters” on rhe "bleachers.” ’ Sport to be enjoyable to him must possess the elements of physical endurance and danger.
The changed conditions of the Indians social and communial life (have necessarily wrought change in his amusements. He has so perfectly merged into the busy, hustling activities of his environment that, in a large measure,* he has come to enjoy the ways and habits of his conqueror. He is no longer the (hunter, the warrior or the savage that so many writers picture him-— rather; however, a man of quiet ways, splendid personal appearance, domestic tastes, high and honorable ideals of life and .government. However, he still feels occasionally the call of the wild, and at such times he enjoys the pastime that his ancestors looked upon as a most complete sport.
Formerly eleven points or more were .played—a point representing the touching of the opponents’ goal by the ball; today usually six points only are played.
A story is printed in today’s Tulsa World concerning Erwin Jeter, who is charged with the killing of a man named McGloth-lin, near Sand Springs, on May 9th. Jeter’s sister, Miss Lillian. Jeter, is also mixed in the case as a witness. It appears that Mc-Glouthlin controlled property through which a creek ran in which the Jeters and others bathed. McGlothlin insulted several girls for bathing in the creek. Erwin Jeter took the matter up and In a difficulty which followed McGlothlin was shot to death. At the preliminary’ trial yesterday Jeter was released on bond signed by all his neighbors. The Jeters, we understand, sire former citizens of Ada and have many relatives and friends here now who sympathiio with them in their trouble.
