The Bend Bulletin, Friday. May 20. 1955
-'TAe Indian Fighter"
In the next five weeks there will be plenty of action
along "the bend in the river", where the Deschutes makes
a wide swing before churning into white water at Ben
jiam Falls. ' .
- Much of the action in connection with the 'produc
. "Jion of "The Indian Fighter", a western film in color,
'"will center in that area, where an old land mass juts
Eastward to push the turbulent Deschutes into the jagged
llava fields.
' ' Mountain backgrounds, grassy meadows, plenty of
. greenery and the curving, giant bend in the' river will
tend themselves nicely to the magic cinemascope lens.
Possibly the only element missing for the production
' of a western picture in the area will be a story that In-
dlana and pioneer settlers actually met in a grim battle
in the area.
Yet in this very locale where "The Indian jFighter"
will be filmed proof was recently found that Indians
".long ago made camp. That proof was a stone "dish", in
-which redmen ground roots and seeds into flour.
V' Pioneers knew of old Indian trails near Benham
falls, and told of tepee poles near pools in the river where
big trout lurked in earlier years. Possibly nomadic des
sert tribes and fishermen from the Columbia met near
Benham falls long ago and battled for the trout-filled
' ' More than a century ago, a pathfinder whose name
ms found blazed in frontier history passed that way. He
' was Captain John C. Fremont, who visited the region in
'1843. . .
Soldiers from Camp Polk possibly visited the Ben
. h'am Falls area in their brief stay on Squaw creek, in the
Sisters country in the winter of 1865-66. There is no in
dication they encountered Indians in the area, but cer
tainly they found Indian trails.
P Some of the "shooting" will bo in the Smith Rocks
' Area, where jagged pinnacles loom above the gorge of
. Crooked river. There js a legend that Indians and whites
! battled in the shadow of the rocks, but history fails to
; back the legend. Old timers said that a soldier from Camp
i Polk fell to his death from one of the "hoodoo" rocks. His
' name was Smith.
Through diligent research, we've tried our best to
" 4'g up some history that would provide a background for
the western movie that is to be filmed on the Deschutes.
:" But we've failed.
But in years to come, and possibly when other films
, are made on the Deschutes, we can point westward to the
. Benham falls area and tell our friends:
"There is the location where 'The Indian Fighter'
' was filmed."

Signing Of an Austrian peace trea
ty after nine years of nerve-wracking
negotiation with the Commu
nists marks the first time that
Russian troops have withdrawn to
wards Moscow since they agreed
to get out of northern Iran in 1943.
According to the text of the Ro
manian and Hungarian peace tre
aties of 1947, the Russians agreed
to withdraw their troops from
those two countries ufter the Aus
trian treaty is signed.
This would mark a further So
viet withdrawal if lived up to.
But the Hungarian and Roman
ian treaties have been violated in
many other ways. The provision
is regarded as a dead letter.
Russian troops are expected to
stay opposite the Austrian border
even in Hungarian and Roman
ian uniforms for a disguise, if ne
Simple facts of life like these
have made many Americans skep
tical ot any good in the Austrian
peace treaty. If the Russians do
move out of their zone of occupa
tion in Austria, pessimists expect
mem to move back in whenever
it suits them after the Ameri
cans, British and French move out.

; Because of some serious abuses in union welfare
;fund handling, confined to a minority of American trade
unions, the national AFL and CIO organizations have
joined in proposing that Congress enact a law providing
'i for compulsory government examination of such funds.
This is a complete reversal of union position on laws
affecting conduct of internal union affairs. Some such af-
fairs were regulated by tho Taft-Hartley act of several
1 years ago, and such regulation was bitterly fought by the
labor organizations and their leaders.
": .Tho. scandal situation got started several years ago.
I A noted, it has been confined to a relatively few unions,
but the practices followed have been reprehensible.
- . Among some of them are:
Use of union welfare and pension funds to set up
businesses in competition with employers with whom a
'union is having a jurisdictonal or organizational fight;
mcKoacKs to union oi urn's oy insurance companies
on welfare fund business;
Excessive salaries to union officers and their friend
and relatives for nominal duties in handling welfare fund
activities; and
Other forms of financial skulduggery involving il
legal transferral of funds to crooked union officials.
Such arrangements do no good for anyone except
ing" a few crooks. The national organizations are wise in
-asking help in curbing them.

announced a new window flower

A household spray just out (by

is said to retard soil on the furn

company is making girdles and
brassieres that somehow have ' a

Brides can trade in the old fam
ily silver to apply on ti,e payments
for a new set, and little boys just
got a go ahead to play with dolls
from a psychologist hired by a
toy company.
Busy Whiter
All in all, there are signs that
this past winter was a busy one.
Women soon will be able to buy
a new eye makeup reported to
impart "the gentle-eyed kitten-of-the-Nile
look." And the convention
of cosmetic chemists holds a panel
discussion tomorrow on wrinkles
so anything could happen before
another winter.
While wives adopt the kitten-of-the-Nile
look, husbands may just
possibly come home with a cat-whc-swallowed-canary
