THE VANISHING INDIAN [Newspaper Article] — Northern Territory Times — 30 August 1927
"THE VAftSÏSHBWG 8NDBAN (By Zane Qrey One of the latest novels published by Messrs Hodder & Staughton is "The Vanishing Indian" by Zane Grey. Unlike aiost of this popular author's works 4t The Vanishing In- dian " cannot be classed as one' of world wide interest. It seems written with a view to expose the bad treatment of Indians by Govern- ment officials . r à missioners ; the pretty girls l» lia' and the tribes- men are robbed oí their rights to the land. It is pitiful to read of the shame and misery inflicted on a race already receding to the vanishing point. If the allegations are true the American newspapers should bo the sole medium of ventilation ; if untrue it is a pity to inflict such a mournful story upon a bookloving public. Apart from the mournful story-unhappiness everywhere all the time-and its sorrowful ending -there are passages of interest. An original story is given\about a mem- ber of an Indian regiment which went to the front during the wai. One of them, ...

Stretton prosecuted and Mr Barratt appeared for1 defendant who pleaded guilty. Mr Barratt said'defendant was an old Chinese resident in the Terri- tory for many years. Opium was practically part of his life. It was necessary for him. He was an addict and as such he asked the Bench to be as lenient as possible. Many cases of that kind came before the Court and there would probably be a good many more. Defendant aid not harm anyone but hmself or sell opium to Aboriginals. lb was against the law but the law said he could obtain it by going to a medical man Defend- ant would hardly pay a guinea to a medical mer. v/nen he had only a miserable pittance to eKe out his existence, and opium was now es- sential to his physical nature.

THE MASTER WORD Some years ago one took as his theme lor an opening address to tlie well worn word ' work ', and he palled it "The Master Word". By an interesting coincidence after a recent conferring of degrees at the Sydney University the Deputy Chancellor in speaking te the newly passed men said that they should not merely look at their course of study as a means for making a living, but also perhaps chiefly as an endowment to be used in service for their fellow men. The first speake- mentioned i o' i put Lhib in the form of work foi wcrkY1 sake, not for the worldly reward. Herein is food for thx'i.ht.
