An evening money could not buy
Recently. I was privileged to
spend a weekend at Warm Springs
with the Afs students from all over
Oregon. We had approximately
100 foreign students from 42
countries around the world. About
half of them had their host brothers
or sisters with them.
I'm sure two of the outstanding
events of their year in Oregon will
be the Pendleton Roundup and
their weekend in Warm Springs.
Thev will take home pictures and
memories of our Oregon Indian
friends to share all around the
world. This really makes for a
different story of the United States
and Indians than they had from
TV. The goal of our exchange
program is to promote peace and
understanding around the world.
Those of us who volunteer our time
in this way really believe in this.
Perhaps some of you remember
that your own Pam Keo spent a
year in New Zealand with our Afs
exchange. We are proud to count
her a part of our Afs family.
On behalf ofall the studentsand
adults I would like to say thank
you to everyone who let us share
their lives for a short time. I. too.
will never forget the day I got to
work beside and share with your
ladies who so graciously helped
and shared with us. The salmon
was out of this world, the times of
dances were wonderful. I even had
the thrill of holding Nadine's darling
baby that evening. As I sat there
watchine your people do their dances
and our people joining in with
them. I thought, "this is an evening
that money could not buy only
Thanks so much for letting us
join with you for the weekend. I
hope you enjoyed the day even half
as much as we did.

To the Editor,
A week's stayat Emanuel Hospital
in Portland has made me appreciate
the care and professionalism of the
staff there and to appreciate, so
much more, my dear family.
From April 21 to April 30 1 was a
patient in the hospital's orthopedic
ward because I had a loose and
painful prosthesis of the left hip.
Doctors Richard Zimmerman and
Paul Campbell performed a surgery
called "revision total hip
Physical therapy followed the
operation and therapists Vicki Petri
Jones and Nancy Gilmore worked
with me to help me become as
indepedent as possible. I learned
safety precautions and I worked at
increasing my strength and
Emanuel hospital chaplain, Pastor
Coleman, talked with me often and
prayed for my comfort and recovery.
I greatly appreciate the care and
concern given to me by these people.
But most of all, I am grateful to
my family for spending time with
me and visiting me in the hospital.
You really don't know the importance
of your family until you need their
After losing both my mother and
my father I no longer take my
family for granted. It is painful to
see children disrespect their
parents. They should learn how
important parents are and they
should realize that their parents
will not be here forever. They may
not even be here tomorrow.
In particular I would like to
thank my dear Aunt Lee (Ull-la)
for staying with me at the hospital.
She spend much of her time with
me and made me feel safe. She is
the very heart of our family.
I'd also like to thank Mary
Danzuka for bringing my daughters
to see me. Thanks also to my
husband, Richard, to Marie and
Janice and Mackey. They were
there while I was going through
And while I'm expressing my
appreciation. I would also like to
thank my family and friends for my
wonderful wedding last day last
November. Richard and I enjoyed
sharing that day with you.

To the Editor,
The Tenth Unity conference held
in Washington, D.C. on April 26
29, 1 986, proved to be a real success.
It was a beautiful gathering of
courageous young Indian men and
women representing many tribes
throughout America. Most ofall,
the youth present have the potential
to become professional leaders. It
was so encouraging to witness the
many adults lending their support
to impress upon our young people
the important features needed to
strengthen their leadership qualities.
I believe through "unity"that Indian
people will achieve economic success
while preserving a healthy and rich
I am confident that the four
students from Warm Springs gained
worthy knowledge by attending

ment of Education, and Mr. Alan
