The case was explained as to the other parent and this father agreed that it would be for the best interests of his son to remain in school. These cases show the two attitudes towards schools that are present among all people but especially so among Indians. The one sees no use in education and the other appreciates its value. The Indian question will never be solved finally until more of them get into the latter class. It is not so important that the children be taught the distance around the world, or how to figure the interest on an outstanding debt as it is that there be instilled into them and through them into their parents the value of an education and the necessity of making use of every day of childhood in obtaining it. As a general thing we find the Indians who have had the benefit of ex tensive schooling are the ones that support the school more readily. How to meet this situation is one of the live issues of the day for the Indian Service and a definite and efficient plan should be followed out to bring about a condition where the schools receive more sup port from the parents. It is easy for anyone to see which one of the two Indians referred to above is making the best citizen and educa tion is the reason he is doing so.
