Into the fight next spring.
Some of the Indian people think be
cause they are wards of the Govern
ment should not be subject to the
draft while about fifteen of the young

the liberty of their country. Some of
them are already In France but none

stood that they are not patriotic but
they do not want to cross the ocean
to a strange land and a strange people
to fight but if our enemies come to
this country and attempt to take our
homes and make us slaves we will
fight to the death.
