"Camouflage is as old as the storm god of Indian folk lore," said Chief Strongheart, who re cently returned from France where he is credited with having done more for the fighting traditions of his race than any other American Indian. "The Indians were the true in ventors of camouflage," said the chief, who will go to his Yakima reservation in Washington state after a brief Eastern visit. "They discovered its advantages in their earliest conflicts. When a battle was to take place in a forest in the summer months, the warriors would paint their bodies green, with a dash of other colors to produce the exact blend with sur roundings. They even sketched birds and sraail animals ou their bodies to make the effect'more realistic. If the battle was to take place when autumn had withered the leaves and touched them into gold, splashes of brown and yel low made the warriors blend with setting. "The trick, wherT artfully turned, resulted in great victories. Many early bettlers were taken into captivity by u&e of camou flage. "The Fnnch were quick to visualize its enormous advantages in the war just closed and prompt ly carried the art to its peake." Chief Strongheart was rejected by the army because, as a leader of Indian scouts in the service of the United States in Mexico in 1910, he received a shot in the leg in a skirmish with Mexicans. Be fore being wounded he killed two Mexicans and took seven prison ers. Realizing his un6tness for mili tary service, the chief toured America for army recruits. After an address in front of the Newgrapher York public library one day 233of men enlisted. Two hundred more volunteered in New Jersey and Massachuetts. Heading west from New York, he spoke in large cities for the Liberty Loan and War Thrift Stamp drives. During his campaign he wore his native dress, including the head feathers. Chief Strongheart says that over 18,000 American Indians went to France with the Americau Expe ditionary force, most of them serv ing as scout. He cited an incident where five Indians enabled the Americans to capture 13,000 prisoners.Ex. THINK IN INTEREST SAVE On to Him. "I can't live properly on $75 a week," complained the young man.
