National Monument," consisting of 38
acres within the Tongass national for-
est, Alaska, has just been created by
presidential proclamation. The tract
embraces the well known abandoned
Haida Indian village of Old Kassan,
situated on Prince of Wales island in
southeastern Alaska, about 30 miles
west of the city of Ketchikan.
The village was abandoned by the
Indians about 10 years ago. Among
the relics which remain there are
about 50 Indian totem poles, five or
six of which are classed as exceed-
ingly good specimens. In the deserted
village there are also eight large
square buildings which were orig-
inally constructed according to the
peculiar plan of the Haida Indians, and
which, it is stated by those best quali-
fied to know, represent the best speci-
mens of Haida architecture that now
The largest of these buildings is ap-
proximately 40 by 60 feet in size and
is made entirely of round and carved
timbers. There also remain a number
of Indian graves with the typical
small grave houses erected by the
Alaskan Indians.
"Kassan" is said, to be the Indian
word which means "a pretty town,"
and all reports agree that the village
was well named. The fact that the
village was occupied by the Indians
for many years explains the local
name "Old" Kassan, by which it is
widely known.
Since the village was abandoned by
the Indians the buildings have been
rapidly falling into a state of dilapida-
tion and decay, and a certain amount
of vandalism by tourists and souvenir
hunters renders some form of protec-
tion essential. An examination of the
area was made jointly by representa-
tives of the forest service and of the
interior department, and reports
strongly urging the establishment of
a national monument were approved
by the secretaries of both departments.
The Smithsonian Institution strongly
endorsed the proposition for the estab-
lishment of a national monument. The
new national monument will be pro-
tected and administered by the forest
service, as is the case with all monu-
ments located within the national for-

Doctors tell of one man in the

through the experience of having three
bombs explode in his pocket without

steel helmet, was hit by a bullet which

passed round his head, and went out
