Uncle Sam Plans to Make Red
Man Useful Citizen.
Vocational Schools Established to Make
Young Wards of Government
Efficient in Various Indus-
trial Pursuits.
To nmke the red mnn n productive
citizen, prepared to tuko his place In
the industrial und commercial life of
the nation 1b the object of the voca
tional tralulug which has been Intro--duced
by Uncle Sam Into all the In--dlan
schools of the country. The chil
dren of the original Americans are now
being given the benellt of what gov
ernment officials believe to be the best
vocational training ottered by any
school system in the United States.
The new system of training for Uncle
Sam's young girls is being de eloped
under the supervision of Cato Sells,
head of the bureau of Indian affairs of
the department of the Interior. Mr.
Sells is giving much attention to this
feature of the bureau's work and Is
confident that it will produce very
beneficial results.
Given Practical Training.
The system, recently devised, is di
vided Into three divisions. The first Is
the beginning stage, the second the
Undine stage and the third the finish
ing stage. During the first and second
periods the training Is domestic and in
dustrial activities center around the
conditions essential to the Improve
ment and proper maintenance of the
home and farm. The course outlined
4n the prevocntlonal division is unique
In the fact that In nddltlon to the regu-
Cato Sells.
lar academic subjects boys are required
to tuke practical courses iu farming,
gardening, dairying, farm carpentry,
farm blucksmlthlng, farm engineering,
farm masonry, farm palntlug and shoe
and harness repairing, und all girls are
required to tuke courses In home cook
ing, sewing, laundering, nur&lng, poul
try raising and kitchen gardening.
This course not only prepares the
Indian youth for Industrial efficiency,
but At the same time helps them to
find those activities for which they are
best adapted and to which they should
apply themselves definitely during the
vocational period, the character and
amount of academic work being deter
mined by Its relative value aud Impor
tance as a means of solving the prob
lems of the farmer, mechanic and
Nonessentials Eliminated.
Nonessentials are eliminated. One
half of each day Is given to Industrial
training and the other half to academic
studies. All effort Is directed toward
traltdng Indian boys und girls for ef
ficient und useful lives under the con
ditions which they must meet after
leaving school. Other subjects to which
this course directs special attention
are health, motherhood aud child wel
fare, civics, community meetings and
extension work.
After their long course of search,
the experts of the Indian olllce who
have been In the closest touch with this
work sny that they came to the conclu
sion that tho economic needs of all
people and of tho Indian especially
demand that the schools provide for
Instruction along eminently practical
lines. To this end the Industrial schools
were cstubllshed, lu which the culture
value of education Is not neglected,
but rather subordinated to the practi
cal needs of tho child's environment.
In the first or primary period, spoken
of before, the Indian child goes into
what Is to him u strange land with a
strange tongue, strange habits, customs
and standards. Ho Is lacking that fivo
years or so of fundamental home edu
cation which most white children re
ceive Iu our American wnys of think
ing, doing and living. Officials of tho
Indian olllce uro much pleased with tho
way their new method Is working out.

Uncle Sam's Experts Will Instruct
Applicants for Training, However,
Must Agree to Become Officers In
the Aviation Reserve Corps at
' End of Schooling.
Civilians who meet the requirements
of Uncle Sam will have an opportunity
to become experienced aviators at the
expense of the government, nccordlng
to plans that are being prepared by the
aviation branch of the Utdted States
Signal corps In compliance with the act
of consnws appropriating $Ki,000,000
for the organization of a military avia
tion corps.
For the alatton suction of the Signal
Officers' Reserve corps It Is proposed
to have 21H) olllcers, graded from major
to second lieutenant. Those who
aspire to be olllcers may be taught to
fly at tlw expense of the government.
Applicants must be from twenty-one
to twenty-seven years old. If the can
didate Is considered desirable he will
be examined physically, mentally and
morally. The physical test will be the
same as that required for officers of
the regular army who want to serve
In the Aviation corps. In the mental
test the applicant will he required to
establish the fact that he has "the
equivalent of a college education."
The candidate must Ktnte in writing
that If he passes his aviation test after
being taught aviation at the expense
of the government he will become an
officer iu the Aviation Iteserve corps'.
Then the examining board will recom
mend that the applicant be designated
as an aviation student. lie will be sent
either to an army aviation school or a
private aviation school approved by
the officer In charge of the aviation
section. When he has been taught to
fly he will be commissioned second
It Is the intention to organize re
serve uero squadrons iu various parts
of the country.
The enlisted reserve corps calls for
i4 master signal electricians, 11)0 first
class sergeants, 1181 sergeants, OKI cor
poruls, 1,881 privates, first-class, and
U70 privates. These men will bo ex
pected to attend to the motors of the
An officer In the reserve corps will be
commissioned for live years, after
which he may be recommlssloued iu
the same or higher grades for succes
sive periods of five years.
In time of uctunl or threatened hos
tilities olllcers of the reserve corps are
subject to such duty as the president
may prescribe. Heads of staff corps
when authorized by the secretary of
war may order reserve officers to duty
for periods not exceeding 15 days a
year. While so serving the olllcers will
be paid the same us the respective
grades In the army.
They Should Not Be Used in Packing
Boxes for Shipment Through Any
Belligerent Countries.
If you arc going to ship some old
clothes to the Belgians or to anybody
else, through tho belligerent countries
of Europe, donlt wrap them lu old
newspapers. This Is the warning Is
sued by Uncle Sam.
Likewise, If you are packing some
thing, don't use old magazines or pa
pers to fill the Interstices to keep your
gifts from rattling around in an over
sized packing case.
Warning Is being given nil shippers
by the department of commerce that
delay in customs is sure to bo the por
tion of such shipments If they do not
suffer a more serious fnto.
This wnrnlng Is given to big ship
pers, many of whom have found old
papers and magazines u cheap and
useful packing material. Presence of
such printed mutter Is a real menace
to the goods.
An ulterior motive Is always sus
pected when uncensored printed mat
ter comes to n belligerent country
through channels other than the pub
lic post, where It Is readily expected.
Homo newspapers are censored by the
governments, and uncensored Ameri
can papers are not appreciated by the
authorities In out-of-the-wny corners
of packing cases.

lloni. 12:1 It. V.
The first 11 chapters of this let
ter tench and Illustrate the great
principles of the Christian life. Paul
calls It "my Gospel." Its funda
mental principle Is that Justification
regenerates men, and nothing else.
The second section Is the practical ap
plication of these truths.
I. The Exhortation to Gratitude
(vv. 1-1!). "Therefore," because of the
work of Christ on our behalf, wo are
to present, our bodies as living
sacrifices unto God, to be used for
his glory und service. (See chapter
0:18, 10, 1). Paul urges, he beseeches ;
he Is winsome, though he might com
mand. To "present" technically means,
"bring nn offering to God." Tho body
Is the sum of nil human faculties,
physical und spiritual. It must not be
defiled by being yielded as nn Instru
ment to sin, for It Is the temple of
God. (1 Cor. 8:10, 17). A "Living Of
fering." (not ii8 the bodies of sluln
animals offered by Jews) Is n conse
cration of the body, und not u destruc
tion of life. The original means that
thisthe offering of ourselves as n
living sacrifice Is a reasonable, ra
tional service. God has the right of
ownership of every member of our
body, nnd there never was n day when
there was greater need of Insisting
upon a Christianity that affects the
bodies of men than today. Hands, lips,
ears, eyes every member should bo
constantly presented to him who pur
chased It by the blood of his own Son.
(I Cor5. fl:'20; I Pet. 1:18-11).) This
Is n spiritual, religious service be
cause It Is our spirit which presents
the offering of the body which he in
habits. Too many of us are "fuBh
loued uccordlng to this age."
II. The Expression of Gratitude
(vv. 8-8). Or tho right use of tho gifts
of God. (1) Avoid "self-conceit" (vv.
8-5). These verses Indicate how im
portant this subject Is. Conceit Is en
tertaining nn exaggerated opinion of
one's own ability. Tho church has
many members, and they do not all
have the samo olllce; there Is a variety
In tho unity of the body. So In tho
church there uro muny "members In
one body," each of which Is Important ;
all uro essential. (2) "Prophecy"
(v. 0), not necessarily foretelling, but
tho revelation of spiritual truth und
expprlenco uccordlng to tho propor
tion of our faith (Ps. 80:3), the living,
spiritual experience of the presence of
God within us. (8) "Ministry" (v. 7).
The business Bide of tho church, col
lecting of Its money und the distribu
tion to the poor. Some can best at
tend to such business. Many churches
full by not selecting wise lenders for
this work. (4) "He thut teacheth."
The true pastor Is a combined proph
et, pnstor and teacher. We are all
teaching, whether we wish to or not
It Is a privilege us well as an obliga
tion. III. Conduct Toward All Men (vv.
0-21). The renewed soul needs guld
uncc, encouragement und instruction.
(1) "Iu love" (v. 0). Tho hypocrite
wears u musk. Notice the closo con
nection of "ubhor thnt which Is evil"
with "cleave to that which Is good."
Tho word for cleave means literally
to glue It, so that nothing can scpnrate
you from lovo which Is tho supremo
good. "In honor preferring one an
other" (v. 10). Let others curry the
bunncr few of us can stund this ucld
test. (8) "Diligent In business" (v.
11). Whatsoever your hands find to
do, do It wllh your might, being fer
vent or boiling In Bplrlt, the reverse of
tho previous exhortation, In that which
we are thus to servo tho Lord. Few
need exhortation to be diligent In their
own business, but all of us need this
exhortation with regard to the "king's
business." (!) "Rejoicing in hope (v.
12). Triumphing over trlnls und diffi
culties in tho way. Looking for that
"blessed hope" (Titus 2:13). (5) Pa
tience and tribulation (v. 12). The
Latin "trlbulum" wns tho threshing In
strument or roller whereby the bus
bnndmuu sepnrated grain from the
husk. Sorrow, distress nnd adversity
urc the menus for separating men from
the chaff of their lives. Sometimes
smnll annoyances, long continued, be
come great tribulations. (See .Toshun
21:12.) (0) Continuing In thu school
of prayer (v. 12). Steadfast, urgent,
pressing, persevering prnyer (Luke
12:1). (7) "Given to hospitality" (v.
13) ; literally, pursued It.
Tho word "condescend" Is not strong
enough It should be literally "Borne
away" from the living things along the
line of tho things that are humble.
(8) Living pcuceably with all men
(v. 18) ; being ready for peace und to
do more than your share of recon
ciliation. (0) Overcoming evil with good
(vv. 10-21). Tho heaping of couls upon
tho enemy's head Is uot the object hut
tho result of returning good for evil.
(See Proverbs 25:21-22.)
Tho only real victory Is, "Be not
overcome by evil, but overcome evil
with good."
