(Continued from 1st Page.) the Chippewa Indians of the Walpole Island reservation in Michigan were preparing for a celebration, they had to send for one of Miss Densmore's books to learn some of their own tribal songs, there being no living Indian there who remembered them. "Miss Densmore, with no inten tion of specializing in Indian music, kid her foundation for the work well. Her first serious study of music was made at the Oberlin Conservatory in Ohio, after which she went to Boston to study piano with Carl Baermann and counter point with John K. Payne of Harvard. She was a piano pupil of Leopold Godowsky in Chicago and an organ pupil of Hamlin Hunt in Minneapolis. For several years she taught piano in St Paul and played a church organ in Red Wing. "In the summer of 1905 shea made a vacation trip to the White Earth Indian reservation and wrote down by hand a good many Indian songs simply to satisfy the strong personal fascination exerted upon her by the subject. In 1907 sheday went again to White Earth and at the end of her busy vacation wrote an article on the music of the Ojibways, which she sent to the Bureau of Ethnology in Washing ton and suggested that an appro priation be made to continue the work. "With the prodigality character istic of the government in scientific matters the Bureau of Ethnology sent her $150 and told her to spend it freely. "That magnificent appropriation did the business. Miss Densmore added vision and determination to her $150 and went to work as seriously as if it had been $150,000. She bought a phonographic equip ment, went lo Leech Lake and there her first phonogr.tphic rec ords of Indian songs were made by an Ojibway Indian named Red Blanket. In the fall of 1897 she reported to the Ethnological bu reau and asked for more money to enable her to go to White Earth where an annual "fall payment" would bring a large number of Indians together. A small ad ditional sum was sent her she went to White Euth, recorded more songs on the'phonograph and sent them to Washington. "Miss Dcnsmora's success in inducing the reluctcnt red man to reveal his tribal songs to & pale face and allow her to make phono graphic records finally aroused such interest in Washington that the Bureau of Ethnology sent for her. "In February, 1908, she went to Washington and lectured before the Anthropological association. As a result she obtained serious recognition, was placed perman ently upon the staff of the Bureau of Ethnology and remained in Washington three months, system atizing her plans and placing them upon a firm basis. Since 1908 she has spent many weeks amctag the Chippewas of Minnesota and Wisconsin, the Sioux of North and South Dakota, the Mandans and Itidastas at Fort Berthold and the northern Utes of the Uintah and Ouray reservations in Utah. She has recorded up- Hotel HI A WA THA Norman McArthur Prop. Board by Day or Week. Good Meals, Clean Beds. Livery in Connection.

Three of her elaborate reports have been published in book form by the Bureau of Ethnology, i 0 on Chippewa music, in 1910 andWarren, 1913 respectively, and one on Teton Sioux music in 1618. Her third report is about ready for publication. THINK (K INTEREST SAVE News of White Earth and Vicinity. know not waet tee trmtm may be, I tell It a* 'twas taU to ma."
