GEDDES, June 4 (Special) — Twenty-two members of the Bdiheca club composed of Indian women residing at Greenwood, S. D. were guests of the Civic improvement club here.

A literary program of readings, Indian legends, and Indian songs of the Sioux was followed by a luncheon.

Featuring the meeting was a display of Indian plain and fancy beadwork which showed remarkable taste and skill.  Some of these pieces have been exhibited throughout this country, Canada, England and other foreign countries and have excited interest and admiration.

The orange was introduced into Europe by the Moors in the eleventh century and brought to England by Sir Walter Raleigh in the sixteenth.

I purchased roughly 25 original issues of the Yankton (South Dakota) Press & Dakotan, dating from 1938 to 1946.  I am systematically going through every issue and will be posting the articles that include the names of individuals.   I am happy to email full-size scans of any article.  Feel free to ask.
