THE INDIAN HELPER....
Helping to remind Indian students to stick to it.
Helping by chiding them about the "savage ornaments" their kin wear at home.
Helping to remind them of the ever-present, all seeing, "Man-on-the-band-stand" in their lives.
Helping to reveal that bad girls are bad girls whether white or Indian, characterized as "loud and coarse and talk too much."
Helping to reassure residents that the boiler is cranking up readying the plant for cold weather (we are beginning to feel it in Carlisle now).
Helping to remind the boys to tip their hats to the ladies.
Helping bring attention to the ultimate goal, splitting up the reservations.
As always, urging students to remember lessons learned and to keep to those lessons after their return to the rez (which they aren't supposed to do, but they do, and this is the reality of the failure of Carlisle).
Henry Standing Bear (Sioux), class '91, writes back about the conditions in S. Dakota after Wounded Knee. He wants to leave the rez. Jemima Wheelock (Oneida) is teaching at the Oneida School. Celicia Wheelock (Oneida) is teaching at the Carlisle School. Samuel Townsend (Pawnee) one of the first newspaper editors, returns to attend Dickinson Law School. Richard Davis'(Cheyenne) success overseeing the milk cows at the school farm is always of interest to HELPER readers.
The Hilton family has a long history as Outing Patrons. They lived in Oak Hill, 2 miles south of town, grew fruit and supported many students. This family name surfaces throughout decades of Carlisle patronage.
Somebody's been throwing their ink around. Messy.
