THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 1940 THE LONG ISLAND TRAVELER - I f ATTITUCK WATCHMAN PAGE THREE I N K L I N G S INDIAN NAMES By liydlft Huntley SJgoumey Ye say. they all have passed away, That noble race and brave; That their light canoes have vanUhd From off the crested wave; That, m id the forests where they roam’d There rings no hunter's shout; But their name Is on your waters, — Ye may not wash It out. Tte where Ontario’s billow Like Ocean’s surge Is curl’d; Wlhere strong Niagara’s thunders wake The echo of the world; Where red Missouri taring the Rich tributes from the West, And Rappahannock sweetly sleeps On green Virginia’s breast. Ye say, their cone-llke cabins, That cluster’d o’er the vale, Have fled away, like wither’d leaves Before the Autumn gale; But their memory llveth on your hills. Their baptism on your Shore; Your everlasting rivers speak Their dialect of yore. Old Massachusetts wears It Within her lordly crown. And broad Ohio bears It ’Mid all her yoimg renown; Ck>nnectlcut hath wreathed It Where her quiet foliage waves. And bold Kentucky breathed it hoarse Through aU her ancient caves. Wachuset hides its lingering voice Within his rocky heart. And Alleghany graves its tone Throughout his lofty chart; Monadnock, on his forehead hoar. Doth seal the sa«5red trust; Your mountains build their monu> ment, Though ye destroy their dust. • • • This poem. Indian Names, came par­ ticularly to our attention this week as we thumbed idly through pages of po­ etry. because we’ve been talking to stu­ dents in Southold and in Riverhead about our Ix>ng Island Indians and In­ dian legends^ We sort of had the sub­ ject on our minds. Then, too, the fall of the year seems to be the time to think of Indians and Indian things. It’s the right season for ceremonial dances and peace-pipe smokings. In the schools. It’s the time to be talking about Indians becaue tliey come first in the history books, chronologically. iia w« gofTtmeinw » - paint pots, hatCheta, toys, beadwork, and crude tools, for the Fourth and EDITRD BY JKAN HALLOOK Fifth Oraders, we couldn’t help a thought of admiration tor those first inhabitants of Long Island. They had a remarkable civilization with those tools which seem so remarkable and a bit unwieldy, today. We agree with Lydia Huntley Sigourney that Indian nam es,will always be with us. And we’re glad it’s so. It will keep remind­ ing us, when we see an Indian name, of the former tribes of redmen who roamed our Southold shores, and the color of those days will be added to ours. Rodeo? Speaking of Indians reminds us of the Wild West, and of the Rodeo, all in sequence, even though the part of the Rodeo we saw wasn’t in the West but from it. It was, in fact, a Rodeo Parade travelling, of all places, mag­ nificently down Fifth Avenue in the world’s largest metropolis! We thought the contrast of sleek horses and west­ ern outfits against the streamlined sky­ scrapers was marvelous I Of course the parade was an adver­ tising stunt, as all circus-like parades are. But they’re every bit as Interest­ ing as any other kind of parade, even so. We were amazed to find tnat the horses to(A to the city streets as a matter of course, and didn’t fuss a bit over them. Nor did the riders seem to find their surroundings other than ex­ pected and commonplace, as far as their horses were concerned. By that we mean that the riders nonchalantly gave their mounts their head and waved to the crowds or stared up a t the skyscrapers. We happened to be watch­ ing the parade from one of those sky­ scrapers, which made the upturned faces of the riders the more notice­ able. That made it even more surprising, to us, when, a day later we met sever­ al of the girls from the Rodeo in their very colorful and smooth riding out­ fits and ten gallon hats window shop­ ping on that same Fifth Avenue. They had with them an older woman who seemed to be a chaperone in that she was watching over them very closely and she wasn’t in a riding habit, her­ self. She looked like all the ten mil­ lion other New Yorkers. Yet she spaike with a western drawl. As we passed the little group we heard her tell the young girls that Altman's wm just down the street and they’d better shop there next. - Ws thought-that the i|1i^rlr1s la Altman's wouM probably admire the western outfits as much as the rest of MATINEE SUNDAY • WBDNMDAY - SATURDAY AT 2:1B M.

It made us want to see the Rodeo, but somehow we didn't get there. Maybe next year we’ll make it! The RamparU We W aldii Occasslonally we mention a movie In this column for one reason or another. Today we’re more than mentioning *niE RAMPARTS WB WATOH because we think it has a message for all Amer­ icans, and for all who live in America but have not becmne cltiaens. First, we’d better say, particularly to our women readers, that we do n o t ad­ mire war pictures as a whole. No one who hates war pictures need fear see­ ing this. In fact, It’s a picture for aU of us who hate war and the situation it places clvUlKd life and living In. I t ’s a picture the pacificists will shout to the housetops about. It’s a picture the preparedness advocates will applaud heartUy. It’s a idclHre those who lived through the World Wlur wlU be glad they didn’t miss. For It's a lecture with a message f<nr Mr. and Mrs. Amer­ ica, and Johnny and Sis. THE RAMPARTS WE WATCH isn’t a Hollywood production. The actcns aren’t actors, they’re neighbors from the next block. One of them happened to be someone we know, and that fact didn’t make the picture seem any the less real. For all the characters in the picture are doing the sort of things our friends and neightaws are apt to be found doing any day of the week, lead­ ing normal busy lives, talking of the War Situation, each according to his occupation and temperament. The amazing thing about the picture, how­ ever, is that the War Situation invol­ ved is that of 1914, not that of today. Yet, essentially, they are both the same. The sequence of the events leading up to the World War and the sequence of events that have filled our news­ papers kept our news conunentators up nights are so nearly identical in formation as to open the eyes of Sis «nd Johnny and Mother and Dad. There are very few scenes taken \be­ hind the line of fire.” THE RAMP­ ARTS WE WATCH didn’t need to put its audience on edge by filling their ears with the incessant pounding of shells, nor to startle their eyes with the horrors dynamite lets loose when it hits its mark. It put its audience In an extremely wide-eyed condition about today’s war events by showing just what haKwned In a typically Ameri­ can village to typically American fam­ ilies, both cltiaens. Immigrants, and naturalind families. Yet it didn’t say that that was its aim. This picturto siiowa you a group of pe< 9 le whom you feel yoii know immedlatdy and wtkoae feelings and reactions are tympathetl- caUy your feelings and actions. This Is what you'd do and are doing today in a nei(.W ar Sttuation. Mtay people wUl attend this mmrto because of the Insertlim In it from a German film Intended as propaganda in those countries next on the Inva­ sion list As such, of course, it is w ^ worth seeing. Childlike psydxrtoty compelling to people who have been scared bgr other similar propaganda runs through that part of the fibn and you can see from it why it would have a terrorising effect in a certain situa­ tion of War. But we felt that the great­ est lesson of THE RAMPARTS WE WATCH wasn’t from watching that contratarand Insertkm, but from the main part of the movie. No matter what you feel about the war s i tu a ti^ do see this movie, and see if it doesn’t make you a t least more wide eyed and discerning. It should! and youll the Star Spangled Banner with more thoughtful emphasis, next ttane. Being FUppaat For a moment, let’s get away from serious topics, and add a word about clothes. For we've been at our usuid window shopping up the Avenue and down Madison. In the d ty for you. And we've a note on evening wraps that seemed a welcome relief to us (even though we can't afford to buy one) and may Interest you. It's tbe tact that Uack velvet is giving way, this year, after a long reign, to woolens trimmed with a bit of fur or a few se>. quins. They’re very gay and feminine, and look every bit as practical as the velvet one hanging in my closet! Wb recommend them highly to any of you who are bunting an evening wrap this year. Most of them were neutral col­ ored, and so us^ul a hundred ways, and gay because of their sequins or fur buttoul GUAM. rvill> fVATBB An abuDtfMit supMr of tiaan, piM water Is neessiary health, but veijr .requentty the supp}y of water from dw veils and ih»Uo«>tfrlve 9 vs||a it m M ^ gnutast meoMas to haatth.

She writes this after being consulted by •'Deedee,” a heart- broken young wife, whose husband and sister are very friendly. They both love her, but neither realixes the pain their friendship is causing her. Miss Norris advises that only time eon eor- reet this lamentable situation. my husband, I am sure of that. S ie is giddy and perhaps shallow, but she loves me. But she plays about with Walter like a happy kid, and he is beginning to feel that she is the most important person la the group. “U he cleans the car, Nancy is out at the garage laughing and help­ ing. U he must run uptown to get S«er or aee somebody, she dances along. S ie listens to him; she laughs at old atories.

The power held by those who love and who are loved is a limitless power. That’s why we have to be so careful of it; why it is such a crime against love itself to mis­ use it. Every mother has the power to completely destroy her children’s lives, if she will, because they love her. Every child ha« potentiaUtiee of hurting b{te parenti;.tjitth coldness and cruelties, beceiuie they love him. Wherever lovi is, there is also the postibility ot agony and crudty and fear. TIm is true eepecially be* tween husbands and wivea, because at the Mceeaary cloeeness of their relationship, and their dependence upon each other, n isa —aOsery fa r Apart. These thinge are so obvious as to be truisms. And y et it is a matter of great aurprise to some young wivee-*and even eome older oqos , that close to utter bliss there can be complete m ise^ . When a wom­ an givea her heart into a man'a keeping ehe doesn't sthrays realise that he may break it aa well as cheririi It. Whra a love-tone in a man’s voice thrills you to utter ecstafy, remem­ ber that a little chill in tto t tone, a shade of indifference or criticism, can lower you to corresponding depths of despair. A wife may ruin her husband’a life. A mother may ruin her aon’s. A son can break his mother’s heart. Easily, easilb', eas- Uy. Fortunately for most of us, love begets love. The young husband forgeta his anger, and in the flood- tide of a blissful reconciliation scene the bride seem s to renUn a aurer position than ever. ^ son has only to say, with a aleepy kiss, \why we were only over at Harry’a play­ ing bottle-pool, Mom.

But used or unused, the awftil force for hurting those we love re­ mains. Here is the case of \Dee- dee,\ Who lives in Pittoburgh, and whose letter has this to say: \We've been married 14 years, I'm 38 and Walter 39. We have a boy of la, and for the past 10 months my sister and her small girl of five have been with us. Junior adores his cousin Jo-Anne, and aa I lovii chil­ dren and housekeeping and garden­ ing It is nice for me to have a i ^ l as well aa a boy. “The trouble is my sister, Nancy. She is eight years younger than I, not pretty, but with a great deal of charm. She and my husband have struck up a friendship th»t excludes me. “Walter defended her in her di­ vorce suit, which was an unpleasant one. He Anally secured her a good alimony and the custody of Jo-Anne. Jo-Anne admires and k>ves her mother, and Nancy is nice enou^ with her, but more like a sister than a mother.

T ell me how to eolve this problem wise­ ly, without hurting anyone.\ Bear the Bnrdea. Deedee, there Isn’t any immedi­ ate answer. This is one of the diffi­ cult times most of us have to en­ dure, aooner or later; a time when you have to admit another woman's auperior charm, beauty and oppor­ tunity, and bear it. The alternative Is to quarrel, destroy the friend­ ship that now exists among you three, and possibly lessen your hus­ band's affecUon.and admiraUon for you. He probably thinks of you as a woman with common sense. To burst out with Jealousy of your sis­ ter would shock and disgust and dis- lUusim him. But you won't have to bear this forever. Nancy doesn want to mar­ ry your husband, with him a few more _ _ to And another mate, and then she will setae down to real busbiesa, and you wiU have the grateful Job of consoUng your husband for the change in Nancy. • \She isn't a bit like what ahe used to be.\ he will complain, \and it's aU that boob. What ahe sees in him is more than I can work out! But If she's going to act like such a fbol the sooner she marries him and set- Uies down the better.\ Your only cure. Deedee, is time. But I would like to give a hint to the husbands and wivea ao cheerfully take chances with the sa­ cred and easily destroyed thing that is married love and conlldence. It would be a good idea for eviiry mar­ ried person to check up on or herself, now and than. Ask your­ self if the flettering friendship that seem s so harmless and so amus­ ing to you is hurting your old mate. Ask yourself If the person nearest you has any reason to feel herself or hinuelf left out in the cold. Iiove is a gh a t responsibility. To hurt It-rto repulse it, is no laughing matter.
