We first started in on judging two large frosted cakes, and, of course, we had to . sample them. Say! But it makes my mouth water to think of them; they were so good. It was nip I name who in our respective opinion i was entitled to first prize $3. Two ; of us voted for Ruth Millard and one for Helen Snow, the former winning ,he three dollars and the latter taking. second prize with one dollar and a .ialf for her premium. At no time did either judge know who the other, judges were voting for as it was all done by secret ballot. In nearly every instance, except the ake, all of us agreed oh both first and second there being but two prizes offered. I really enjoyed the honor bestowed on me, for it gave ine a better insight into what the Yuma Indians are doing than I could have obtained in any :,ther way, and I was astonished be ond measure to see what splendid .vorlc those little children are doing in the line of preparedness for their future station in life's great battle. It convinced me more thoroughly than was ever before convinced that the government is doing a great work for its wards, and the day is fast ap- proaching when every school in Ameri ca will be teaching its pupils what Uncle Sam has already seen the wis dom of teaching the Indian children. 1 venture the assertion that there isn't a public school in Arizona, Cali fornia,, or, for that matter, in any oth er state in the Union that is teaching its children how to perform every class of work necessary to make good housewives of the girls and good work men or mechanics 61 the boys.

The walls of the class room where we did the judging were almost covered with drawings and samples of penmanship and letter writing. Among the latter I copied the following: "Yuma, Ariz., April 25, 1916. ' Mr. Loson L. Odle, "Yuma, Arizona. ' "Dear Sir: "I am going to write, a letter to you.

If he keeps up that lick he is apt to be chief of his tribe in later years, or make a good chief of police. Here is a list of the first and sec ond prize winners: Cake: Ruth Millard and Helen Snow. Chairmaking: Peter Escalanti and Harold Cooper. Tablemaking: Harold Cooper and Peter Escalanti. Halter making: James Hills :' and Lewis Waters. Laundry work: Harriette Alexan der and Jennie Hawthorne. ' Dressmaking: Jennie Hawthorne and Ruth Millard. Apron making: Charlotte Olip and Rosalie Parker. Handkerchief making: Charlotte Olip and Rosalie Parker. Lunch cloth: Virginia Jeages and Helen Snow. Sewing apron: Henriette Alexan der, first and second. Saw-buck: Sam Smith. Blackboard frame: Arthur White. Each of these articles were as well made as though they had come fresh from one of the local stores. Indeed the work was wonderful when it is considered that most of it was done by third and fourth grade pupils, and none of them over fifteen years of age, and some of them little tots of the first grade. Mr. Odle certainly has every reason to be proud of both pupils and teachers.
