What is it about collecting Indian
artifacts that makes ghouls of peo
ple who are ordinarily fine and
kindly? A few nights ago, several
Indians came over to Priest Rani”
from Yakima, much excited after
hearing. that saneone was again
digging into their tribal graves and
stealing the few pitiful belongings
that the Indian burn: with his dead

comfortable in their upward jour

had been desecrated. On Monday.
some friends of the Priest Rapids
Indians traveled over the ground
and found that the Stories were all
too true. Many of the graves had
woman's grave, and evidently all
they found were her dishes and bed
ding. Whoever did the work didn’t
have the decency to put the things
back into the grave and cover them
up again, but left them scattered.
Several hundred years ago, the
Indiana supplied their dead with
hows, arrows and spea'rs, wrapped
gave them food for their onward
journey and covered them with dirt
and rocks, but those who have died
in the past thirty to fifty years,
have no such treasures. All they
have is their clothes, diam and
bedding. Surely the people who do
this cannot want these things. In'
one of the cemeteries, nearly all of
the graves are reported as having
been rifled. A few days ago, two
cz’iildren who had been wandering

their parents that they had found

The Indians are thoroughly aroused
over the matter. and Justly so, and
from appearances, it looks as though
the ghouls might. ’run into trouble.

National Capital Adds Much
Interest To Vacation Trip
Before telling of my visit to
Washington D. C.. I will have to tell
of another thrilling incident which
happened the first day of my visit
to the New York Pair. My girl friend
had stated that the first buildim
we should visit was the Telephone
building. We registered and while
waiting for the results we listened in
with close to 400 other people to
many amusing conversations which
took place. We had not been in the
building 20 minutes when my girl
friend had received a lucky number
and as sthe had registered for the
call to my mother also. she was able
to transfer the call to me. It was
quite thrilling to talk practically
across the continent for three min
utes without having to worry about
the cost. The most remarkable fea
ture of these telephone calls is the
