Ikpc Points to Victory for Blue in To
day's Track Meet.
The Washburn track team Invaded
the Ottawa camp today.
Dope pointed to a victory of the
Klue over the Baptists, who beat the
State Normal 83 to 44. but were in
turn beaten by Baker. While Ottawa
out-distanced the Ichabods in the tri
angular meet at Haskell, it is evident
the Blue will today take many of the
events that Haskell showed up so
strong in before.
Coach" Elmer Bcarc took with him
fifteen point men. He is depending
upon Gates. Gage. Kennedy and Mc
Jlhenny in the sprints; Rogers. I.outh
ian, Hamilton. Shoup and Hutchinson
in the distance runs: Vance and Blev
ins in the hurdles: Bievins and Wycoff
in the shotput; Kennedy and Wye-off
in the discus; Wycoff and Rogers in
the Javelin: Wilcox in the high jump:
.larrell and Jones in the pole vault:
Kennedy in the broad jump and
Rogers. Kennedy, Mcllhenny and Ga:es
or Shoup in the relay.
If Washburn wins today it will place
her on a par with Baker in track.
Having beaten Ottawa and the College
of Emporia, and being at even odds
with Baker, the Blue should take the
quadrangular meet on Washburn field
next Saturday. That will give the
Ichabods a clean sweep for the con
ference championship to be decided at
Emporia the following week.

Cam pf ire Stories No. 2.
Lives there a boy who doesn't try
to kill a snake the minute he sees the
reptile? After a boy grows older he
finds that even snakes have their use
in the world, the same as everything
else; but the point I wish to empha
size concerns rattlesnakes.
Boys, never .fool with a rattlesnake,
even at the end of a big stick.
I learned this lesson w.hen I was
twelve years old, while riding with an
Indian boy playmate. We had dis
mounted from onr ponies beside a
stream of water. In running down the
steep bank to the stream I came upon
a big, ugly rattler lazily sunning him-"
self on the rocks. It was then that I
did something that my Indian friend
would never have done.
1 picked up a rock and threw it at
the rattler. These snakes are regular
bulldog fighters. And this one hap
pened to be coiled and ready for 'me.
At about the same moment Mr.
Rattler, who apparently didn't like me
any more than I liked him, struck
back. Hs hit and I didn't.
Mv Indian playmate revenged me
quickly, however, when an arrow from
his bow pinned tne rauiers ugiy nwa
to the ground, where he writhed and
twisted, and then lay still.
At first I did not believe I had been
bitten but the Sioux boy soon dis
covered a tell-tale scratch on the calf
of my leg. Boys, here is wnere na
ture's teaching saved my life. The
Indian bov out his lips to the wound
and sucked it. spitting the blood out
from time to time. Then He took my
handkerchief and bound it above the
knotted it, ran a short stick thru the
knot, and then twisted the stick until
the knot was very tight. Boys, if
you are ever bitten by a snake, do this
first, because it prevents, in a meas
ure, the deadly poison from getting
into circulation.
Despite this primitive first-aid treat
ment. I would never have lived had
not the Indian boy carried me double
on his pony until we reached my
father's ranch. My father tried the
white man's remedy whisky be
cause the Doison of a rattlesnake has
a tendency to stop the heart. Whisky
stimulates the heart, makes it Deal
faster. I grew drowsier, however, and
it is doubtful if I would have survived
had not the Indian boy brought an old
and wise squaw to the ranch.
She set up her tripod or sticks ana
hung a kettle over a fire. In this
kettle she cooked herbs known only
to the primitive people. After she
had dosed me with this terrible con
coction I felt better. But it was two
or three days before I fully recovered,
and I had learned a great lesson.
Boys, don't fool with snakes. They
are something like guns; you never
can tell when they are going to go
off unexpectedly.
This little storv brings to mind the
wonderful value to man of the teach-1
ings of nature.
Boys, I sure wish every white boy
of today could have the fine clean,
physical training that the American
Indian youths of my boyhood days en
joyed. As I have said, there were no
finer examples of physical manhood
in the world than the Sioux Indians
among whom I gTew up. They obeyed
the laws of the great teacher nature.
Question Box No. 2.
Many of your boys have requested
me to describe the training of an In
dian boy to hunt and track animals.
Indian boys are born hunters.
At a very early age their wise fath
ers started the lessons which were to
make the boys mighty hunters and
brave warriors. These lessons were
mental as well as physical, for the real
Indian boy knew all the legends and
mighty deeds of his tribe by heart. He
also knew the great outdoors. Woe be
to the Indian boy who proved a stupid
pupil, because he would have little
chance in the struggle for existence
which all primitive people must face.
I remember my Sioux Indian boy
playmates teaching me how to hunt
and track small game. Fish, rabbits,
squirrels and birds were our best sport
in hunting. Wise in woodcraft were
those boys, whose daily lives were
spent in following the teachings of the
great hunters of their tribe.
Catching fish- thru the ice of the
Missouri river in the middle of winter
is one bit of Indian strategy which is
particularly prominent in my memory.
My Indian playmates and I were
taught to build a tepee on the ico of
the river. Then we would cut a hole
in the ice at the center of the tepee,
and build a fire beside it.
The fish would be attracted by the
reflection of the fire on the ice and
come to the hole to investigate. Then
we would spear Mr. Fish and pull him
thru' the hole.
The Indians taught me how to light
a fire, not only with a flint and sticks,
but by rubbing two spongy pieces of
dry wood together until by combustion
we got fire.
Here is a cunning trick that boys of
today can use in hunting such small
game as rabbits:
We used to snare rabbits by select
ing a small, slender sappling, take a
twisted horsehair noose and tie it to
the top of the little tree. Then we
would bend the sapling down to the
ground and fasten the whole thing
with a slip-knot after adjusting the
noose cunningly. Robbits have little
"run-ways" or trails. Bre'r rabbit
would eventually come along and pos
sibly would stick his head thru the
horsehair noose and in a second the
astonished little animal would be
dangling high in the air as the sapling
snapped back into place.
And so, when the wise little Indian
boys, would show up, they had usually
won another triumph in outwitting
game. This is the secret of living in
the great outdoors. Man must be
craftier than animals, else he cannot
exist. Indian boys were taught to
study the habits of the animals which
they hunted.
The Indians were famous for their
strategy, not only in their warfare, but
in hunting and everything else they
did. For instance, imagine stalking
buffalo attired in wolf skins. The dis
guised hunters would crawl close
enough to the huge animals to easily
kill them with bow and arrow when
they leaped to their feet and threw off
the skins. The Indians knew that the
buffalos were not afraid of a few lone
Such was the wisdom of the red
skin hunters, and the boys that I knew
on the Dakota, plains taught me much
that has been of great value to me all
my life.

The Marine and the Wide World
At the moment you are reading
this there is hardly a country on
earth where there are not United
States Marines, doing men's work
yes, and playing, too. as real
men play storing up, health and
memories that will Jast them to
the end of the chapter.
There are Marines down in Cuba,
picturesque old Cuba almost as
Spanish today as when the red
and yellow flag of Spain floated
over Morro Castle. In Haiti the
queer little republic, where the
colored folks speak French, Ma
rines are helping to slap bad little
bandits on the wrist when they
misbehave. That's life life with
just enough danger in it to make
it worth the living.
There are Marines walking the
streets of London and Paree. They
are hearing real ukeleles on a real
beach at Wakaiki. They are in
the Philippines and "somewhere
cast of Suez," where Mr. Kipling
tells us "there ain't no ten com
mandments and a man can raise a.
thirst." Maybe it isn't as bad" as
that, but the Orient is mighty in
teresting. Days of Real Sport
Any man who feels at home if ith
a gun and a fishing rod was born
to be a Marine. Tou see, a Ma
rine lives on and near the water so
much that he's web footed, and
where there's salt water there are
fish. And in tropical waters there
are fish such as fish stories are
made of fish and turtles that
would make a New York chef weep
f oi joy.
And game! How would it be if
this morning we had started on a.
hunting leave way up into China
in search of deer or bear? Or sup
pose we were guarding Uncle
Sam's big ditch at Panama and
got leave to go out and pot a
jaguar to make somebody a leop
ard skin coat?
Home Life of the Marines
No Marine ever seems to stay In
.one place long enough to get rusty.
When he is not juBt off for for--elgn
ports or just coming home
from service abroad, he is on one
of the big battleships which are
always on the move from one port
to another. Today he may be in
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and the
next bound for France or Con
stantinople, or goodness knows
And when he's on duty in the
C3tates he may be at any one of &
number of interesting places
3uantico. the station juat out of
Washington; the League Island
ICavy Yard, at Philadelphia; the
Brooklyn Navy Yard, at New York;
or he may be at San Diego, in
sunny California, or Mare Island,
in San Francisco Bay.
Work Time for the Marine
The Marine's life is not all play.
There's work to be done. But it's
a man's work and interesting.
There are short, snappy drills
that teach a man to be on his toes.
There are setting-up exercises
that Rive a man a chest like a bar-
rel. There are hikes, short ones at
first and gradually Increasing,
that teach a man to' walk on his
own two feet, and like ft. And
there's rifle practice. But that
isn't work that's sport. There is?
wireless telegraphy and signal
work to be learned. There Is
training in scouting and wood
craft. Maybe you didn't know
that every Marine is a regular
Robinson Crusoe when it comes to
making himself comfortable in a
wild country.
There Is artillery practice and
something of sailing, rowing and
seamanship. For a Marine Is a
sailor as well as a soldier. But
it's good work all of it.
In addition to giving a man
physical fitness and mental alert
ness, the Marine Corps gives
plenty of opportunity for learning
a trade that will mean big money
for him after his discharge. Thou
