When Work Is Completed the Polo

rortlnnd, Ore. In these days of
profiteering nnd wild scrambles i'or the
almighty dollar, It Is a consolation to
iiiki one man In tho world who Is not
money mad and who Is working nnd
has been working assiduously for the
latit five years all for an Ideal nnd
with no ulterior thought of pecuniary
gain spurring him on. Tho ri-mnrk.
able part of It Is that this artist, fori
no is an artist of the highest ype, Is
a full-blooded American Indian chler.
He answers to tho name of William
Shelton, mid when not busy perfect
ing his life work, a monstrous and
skyscraping totem pole upon which Is
Inscribed the history of the Snoho
mish tribe, he'supervlws the running
of the Indian reservation school rit

and thoroughly famlllnrwlth the world
of business, he prefers to devote his
time and attention toward the fulfill
ment of nn Ideal. Oeneratlons niro In-

Five Years Consumed.
To date Shelton has worked during
his spart' time mor than five vcr.rs
on the gigantic post. This work hns
been accomplished, aside from his du
ties as head of the reservation school.
Karly every morning before he begins
mo unties or directing the? functions
of tho schools he Is nt work on his his
toric pole. At tho close of Hin Rchnnl
session ench day finds him again hard
at wont wmi chisel and mallet. It
can bo seen therefore thnt nil of
the many hours he has devoted to his
ret project might be termed overtime.
When finished the nolo will stand
more thnn 100 feet in height nnd will
measure nearly seven feet In diameter.
It has been selected from tlu crontest
of tho Ijlg cedars which grow on the
reservation at ruiaiip. wiicn the work
Is compleled the pole will stand in
front of the school for the tribe, where
for generations to come It will keep
fresh their heredltnry history.
"One of the principal reasons for
my devoting so many years to the mak
ing, or tuts glgnntlc history pole." said
Shelton recently. "Is to shatter the r.er-
slstent belief among so many Ameri
cans as well as others that the totem
polo originally had for Its nurnoso
malniy the Idea of worship. I'll make
a wager that two out of every three

TEACH CHILD EARLY
Plan Legislative Activity in Favor
of Kindergarten Work.
National Association Reports Many
States as Taking an Interest In
Washington. A wave of Interest In
early education Is sweeping over the
country, according to the National
Kindergarten association of New Yoik,
which says that plans for legislative
activity have been reported from Colo
rado, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois,
Indiana, Kansas, Missouri, New Mexi
co, South Dakota, Tennessee, Wiscon
sin and New York.
Porto Itlco Is also going to work for
a favorable kindergarten law.
The latest' figures compiled by the
bureau of education at Washington
show that this country contains 4,000.
000 children between four and six
that the pole at one time was wor
shiped by some Indian tribe.
Pole Only Historical.
"Such Is not tho case. The totem
pole Is nothing more nor less than a
history done In wood carving. Those
persons who are writing or who will
write the history of the recent great
conlllct In Kurope are, Itr the eyes of
many Indians, In reality totem pole
makers. In short, a totem pole maker
Is r historian. The historians of the
war will for years keep alive for fu
ture generations the story of the rise
and fall of the much-despised kaiser,

of the Yanks, of the battles of the

BENEFITS FROM ROAD DRAGS
Projections Are Scraped Off Roadway
and Low Places Filled In, Thus
The graded road can ho kept In the
best condition with the least labor by
using the rond drag. The rond drag
scrapes off the projections and fills
up the low plnces, thus lenvlng no
places for water to stand, which Is
what causes the road bed to soften
nnd be cut Into ruts. A persistent
nso of the road drag will keep the
road bed well crowned, smooth and
hard, and this will nlso result In the
least dust, ns the dust comes lnrse
