ELECTED TO HOUSE 'THRILLiNG STORY OF INDIAN AGENT

ETHNOBOTANY!
Gilmore Denies White Man
Improved Indian's Crops.
The popular notion that white
man has improved the cultivated3
crops such, as corn, beans, pump-
kins and squash, which they in-
herited from aboriginal Indians has
been refuted in an interview with
Dr. Melvin R. Gilmore, ethnobot-
anist in the University museums..]
All of these things, Dr. Gilmore
explained, have been found in ar-
chaeological sites in conditions sim-
ilar to those of today.
"In the Museum of the Ameri-
can Indian in New York there may
be seen," he said, "a 12-row ear ofJ
red-cobbed yellow dent corn, iden-
tical to'that grown in the corn
belt of today. This ancient ear,
was found in a prehistoric archae-
ological site in the Ozark moun-
tains, which is in this corn belt.
"White man," Gilmore continued
to explain, "has not cultivated corn
any farther north or south than the
Indian, nor has he raised it in
higher or lower altitudes, nor has
he been able to adapt it to atmo-
spheric conditions which the In-
dian couldn't.
"In fact," he concluded, "the In-
dian has found more uses for corn
than the white man. They even
use the corn smut-a fungi on the
crop--for food. The corn silk is
also used to fiavor cooked corn."

thriller is told in the Alumnus for
this week. a
Valentine T. McGillicudy, '66- '67,*
was made the Indian agent for
Pine Ridge Sioux sector of -an In-
dian reservation in 1897. The Sioux
had been pushed closer into con-
finement, so that in the late 70's
and early $0's most of the territory
to them was in the worthless. Da-
kota Bad Lands.
Resentment, indignation, a n d
violent mental eruptions resulted.
The situation was critical. A band
of Brules approached the office of
McGillicudy demanding food when
the following scene ensued, accord-
ing to the biographer.
"You tell agent he must give us
grub-now, NOW!" fiercely de-
manded the chief.
Looking the chief straight in the
eye, a half smile on his face, Mc-
Gillicudy quietly answered, "Louis,
just tell him to go to hell- he gets
no grub at this agency."
Instantly the chief. bounded to
his feet, swiftly crossed to the doc-
tor's chair and hoarsely shouted,l
"If you don't give us grub-now--

reeva on s
Without a word, the agent sprang
upon the chlief, seized him by the
throat, and shook him till the rifle
fell to the floor, then rushed him
to the, door, whirled him around
till a full, if not fair, target was
presented, and then landed duly
upon the target as hard a kick that
sent the chief nealy ten feet from
the door.

are selected from "Cowboy Life on
the Western Plains" by Edgar Bee-
cher Bronson.
Prof. White Returns
From Washington Trip

Between now and the first of the
year the city has to meet but one
more payroll in which~ it will ex-
pend $750,000, but in the mean-
while the comptroller expected that
about $3,000,000 in taxes would pour
into the city's coffers.
And Milwaukee is looking to its
citizens for $25,280,988 in general
taxes in 1932, of which $700,000,
has been paid in advance. A year
ago the tax levy was $26,432,356.

CITY HAS RESERVE
Milwaukee Not Only Is Paying
Way, But Has $4,000,000
Bank Balance.
MILWAUKEE, Wis., Dec. l1.-(/P)
-Speaking of money, Milwaukee'
has it.
Unlike some cities, which have
been pinched for cash, the chief
city of, Wisconsin has in the treas-
ury a, bulging surplus of $2,234,000.
And all of the city's bills to date
have been paid.
In addition there were indica-
tions, Comptroller Louis M. Kotecki
said, that when Milwaukee closes
its books with the passing of the
present year there would be some-
thing like $4,000,000 to its credit
-in the bank.
