Taft on horse back in Glacier Na
tional Park.
Helen and Bob Taft had the time
of their lives on their recent visit to
Glacier National Park. They spent
three weeks there, and have numerous
interesting tales to tell of their expe
riences. No doubt the president will
forget" politics and the cares of state
when the young Tafts begin to tell
about the times they had.
Perhaps their most Interesting ex
perience was at the United States
reclamation camp on lower. Two Medi
cine Lake. When they arrived at this
point on their Journey they found
Louis W. Hill, chairman of the Great
Northern railway board of directors,
and a band of real Indians whom he
had In waiting for them as a surprise.
One of the accompanying photographs
shows the parry doing the squaw
dance.
It is here that Robert Taft held a
levity pow wow with Big Top, Glacier
Park Indian chief. Big Top took a
great liking to the-son and daughter
of the nation's "great paleface chief,"
and vowed he'd like to have another
visit with Bob, perhaps In the White
House.
Some ood friends of Bob Taft cap
tured a bear cub and presented it to
him. The animal was tied to a tree
outside the camp, but during the night,
so the story goes, the cub's mother
came around and chewed the rope in
two, thereby making possible her little
one's escape.
Bob Taft took the matter philosophi
cally. "Well," he said, "that cub might
have been a Teddy bear, and if so dad
never would have consen'd to his
hanging around the White House."
In two of the accompanying photo
graphs Helen Taft is seen astride her
pony in Glacier Park. She loves the
outdoor life, and Is especially fond of
horseback riding.
