Abilene Morning Reporter News (Newspaper) - May 8, 1927, Abilene, Texas CHE ABILENE MORNING REPORTER-NEWS Sunday Morning, May 8, 1927. Father Palladia, S. J. Last of Early Jesuit Missionaries, Is Nearing End At Missoula, Mont. By Universal Service.

Setter flutmobik Battery GEO. PARROTT DISTRIBUTOR 350 Cypress Street Phone 2809 American, history As he gazes over the broad virfta now dotted with prosperous borneo and streaked with cement highways and steel rails, he seems to dream of the days when he walked there among the Indians, teaching them the simple truths of Christianity. •Called” OO Years Ago. Father Palladino came to Montana OO years ago at the personal solicitation of two tribal chieftains of the Flathead (Relish) Indians, who traveled by foot all the way from Montana through the expanse of primitive wilderness to St. Louis, to extend “the call.” Four Indiana started the perilous trip, but two of them died enroute. The young Priest—he had Just turned thirty—could not ignore the call. He returned with the two courageous Rodmen. Since that time Father Palladino ha* been the beloved Padre of several ge-nations of Montan Indians. Last year the venerable priest celebrated the 75th anniversary of his ordination. He came to America when just a boy from a little village hidden in the Appenine mountains. He completed his education in a Jesuit monastery in St. Louis and was later received into the order. Father Palladino knows the Indian as perhaps no other living white man. He has written a number of books, many of which are worthy chronicles of the early history of the Northwest. His best known work is a volume called “Indian and White” written in 1894. Since 1917 he has been bedfast and he occupied himself by writing. Father Palladino resents the appellation of “Flatheads" given th 3 Selish Indians—his Indians. He says this Is wrong, since these re! men are shapely and do not practice the custom of "head-flattening” as do other tribes further west. The Selish or Flatheads were deeply religious, he says, and were responsible for the introduction of f white missionaries among the red + men. The Blackfeet, according to the aged hiatorlan, were deadly enemies of the Flatheads. They lived in what is now Northern Montana. The Blackfeet considered the Flathead buffalo hunter# as trespassers Flatheads believed In a Good Spirit and a bad one. They also believed In future states of reward and punishment. With them, the good Indian went to a country of perpetual cummer, where he would meet his wife and children, and where the rivers were alive with fish and the plains swarming with buffalo and horses. Thar bad indian, on the contrary, was doomed to a place perpetually bound with ice and snow. "Their code of morals was short, yet comprehensive, honesty, bravery, love of truth, love for wife and children were the virtues that entitled them to future happiness; while the opposite vices would lead them to everlasting misery." After hearing about/the "Black Rohes,” (the Jesuits) and believing thesis "pale face” teachers cou'd show the red Wn the way to heaven, the Flatheads sent their invitation to St. Louis for a missionary. Habits of Dress. In speaking of the habits of dress of the Flathead tribe, Father Palladino says; "Both men and women were decently clad. Their garments were made of the skins and furs of the animats that supplied them with food, the buffalo, elk, moose, deer, beaver and the like. "Little urchins, however, often had no other garb but what nature provided. Even in winter some of these little red cherubs could still be seen in our day, plodding through slush and snow In their angel garments, any other raiment proving to them as cumbersome as did Saul's armor to young Drfvld." The aged priest receives a few old friends in his sick room from time to time, but he prefers to remain alone to dream of other days. r t •ROUND THE WORLD The Nude in Parliament. BUDAPEST.

Mr. Pakots created amusement by asking the members to inspect the photographs, and declared that the confiscation was an attack upon art and the freedom of artistic taste-Mr. Bcitovsky, however, held to his point, and mentioned that his order was mild when compared to the convention at Geneva in 1923. Although himself a lover of art, he objects to shop-windows being filled with reproductions of the nude In streets frequented by school children, who ar© brought up to regard nakedness aa immodest in everyday life. Mr. Pakot’s suggestion that the morality campaign would be better served by prohibiting women from “making-up” and combing their shingles in public received applause from all parties. Germany’s Shipping Policy. * BERLIN, May 7.—The possibilities of "Rotor” ships formed the subject of an exhaustive report at a meeting of the German Navigation Board. Six months’ constant deep-sea going of Dr. Flcttner’s ro-tor-shlp Barbara, built for the German mercantile marine last year, has proved conclusively that this type of vessel has a big future, with "rotors” used as accessory on board ordinary types of vessel. Germany intends to apply them for long-distance cargo-boate. though never as an independent means of propulsion. One expert described the position of the “rotor” as very much like that of the Diesel motor, which hkd to fight its way step by step, and is still not in use on all typ^s of vessel* where expediency would have suggested it long ago. Experiences made with the Barbara ha\6 proved that rotors made of aluminum can weather the severest storms In the Bay of Biscay and the Gulf of Lyons, nor are they affected as regards efficiency by the tossing of the boat. Two knots an hour’s increase of speed, in spite of c astant changes of course, has been the average result of these tests- In fine weather five knots an hour was accomplished, nor was the boat more affected than any modern type of craft by a wind blowing aft. The Penalty of Popularity. ROME. May 6—When Francesco de Pinedo, the great Italian airman. arrived in Buenos-Aires, crowds of women and children rush ed to catch a glimpse of him.
