Elder Warner is enthusiastic about the futuro of the Indians. Ho says the tribes are eagerly fSking up civ-jilized customs and the younger generation is being schooled carefully by the state. Tliqi''e are two Indians in the ,U. a. house of representatives, another Indian is a leading official in the treasury, department and every greenbaclc bears his -signature, anc" liuost significant of all, and suggestive of "a rapidly changing attitude, the i head of a great nation has taken a wife with Indian blood in her veins. Mr. Warner deplores the moral anrt social degradation found in some tribes, but lays much of tho blame for this at the door of.the white man. He claims that the one great thing which has preserved the red. man during the various scenes of war and pestilence connected' with their history, is their virtue. In spite of "civilization so-called," Mr. Warner points out that today in Glasgow, Montana, may be seen women with their ear;^ and noses cut off as the penalty of breaking ilie moral code of JUe tribe. There is a striking resemblance between their method of handling adultery' and unchastity and that embodied in the Mosaic l.iw. 10-SECOND KNOCKOUT Jim Flynn, Pueblo heavywelgiit, scored a knockout In ten seci^nds over Jack Dempsey of Salt L'pVe In a bout at Murray, a suburb of Salt Lake.
