Panel Meets
An in-service training program
for staff members of Uie Gallup
Indian Community Center was
started last week with a panel
presentatidn on the subject oi al
oholism. Six staff members gave
talks based upon their study of
literature from the National coun
cil of Alcoholism Participating in
the discussion were: Donald Weav
ei, Mrs. Lilly Malone, Mrs. Josie
Quiver, Mrs. Rosemary June,
Mrs. Irene Arviso, Justin Bald
win Johnson Largo and Henry
Tsosie. Mrs. Lorraine Landau,
Center Psychiatric Social Worker
served as resource leader.
Mrs. Josie Quiver s talk pointed
out the fact that of the seventy
million people in the U.S. who
drink, five million of these are
alcoholics. Mr. Johnson Largo
defined the alconohc person as
one who cannot control his drink
ing after taking the first drink
because he feels compelled to
keep on even though he may re
alize he is harming his halth,
endangering his job and hurting
lamily and friends.
The enter staff members re
viewed the It steps to Alcoholism
According to Bahe Ketchum,
water was very scarce during this
past summer at Tonalea. People
bad to move around often in order
to get the water they needed for
their flocks. The windmill at Ton
alea, Arizona, had recently had
a pump put on it, but it is now
broken and the people must wait
for repairs to be made before
they can use it. There is no water
in the vicinity other than the
mountain springs or in the can
Tribal assistance in housing
goes forward. Four families al
ready have their homes complet
ed. Two others are being worked
on. These people are justly proud
of thei rnew homes and really
appreciate what the Tribe has
done for them. They all say
“Thank You.”
More work is expect id for the
present tinu. There ar e springs
here which hav- rot b-en coml
pletely developed Not only is the
water storage heeded out there
which begins with social drinking,
develops into “blackouts,” increas
ed dependence upon alcohol, mak
ing alibis, early morning drink
ing, drinking alone, anti-social be
havior and inner resentment, an
xiety, delerium tremors and final
realization that he is sick, unable
to handle liquor, and needs outside
help to give up his drinking. In
considering some of the possible
causes of the disease, it was not
ed that there may be something
in the alcoholic's physical make
up or body chemistry which pro
duces an unusual reaction to al
cohol, but emotional problems al
most always are connected with
alcoholism. Many feel unwanted,
frustrated, unsuccessful, angry,
fearful and try to escape from
ehese feelings by excessive drink
ing. This was followed by sug
gestions given by Mrs. Irene Ar
viso on how to treat an alcoholic.
“Start by learning, reading all
you can about alcoholism as a
disease, change your own attitude,
maintain a healthy atmosphere in
the home; don’t preach or lec
ture, be holier-than-thou, threaten,
hide liquor, argue.

stock nor stock permits. Some of
the families are large and have
nc means of support. They are
hoping for work in this area very
soon, so they can pay their bills
at the Trading Post.
The new Chapter House for this
area was dedicated July 25, 1960.
Mr. Scott Preston from the Tri
bal Council was present as well
as several other delgates. Mr.
Preston delivered the prin
cipal address of the program.

served stew, bread, coffee, land

THE NAVAJO TIMES October, 1960
Navajo Arts
The 1960 Inter-Tribal Indian Cer
emonial is now over; but for thei
Navajo Tribe and the Craftsmen
ol the Navajo Arts and Crafts
Guild it will long be remembered.
At this year’s Ceremonial the j
Navajo Arts and Crafts Guild took ■
the “Sweepstake” award in the
exhibit hall. In other words, the i
many Navajo weavers and silver- j
smiths who exhibited their hand
crafts in the name of the Guild i
took more ribbon awards than a/iy
other exhibitors in the hall. This
feat is quite an accomplishment,
in itself; but even more so when j
you realize the Guild limits its 1
entries to only Navajo craftsmen.
Listed below are the weavers
and silversmiths who helped make
this years Ceremonial a success)
