Publication of the Christian nationalist boys' group led by Fred Meyer, which boasted of having a Native American leader on its Executive Board. "For many years now this great stalwart American Indian Chief, Many Treaties, a full-blooded Black Foot Indian, has been loyal and faithful to the Braves Organization, where he has served on the Executive Board. Many Treaties has been a great favorite with scores of our boys, and they have learned many lessons from this great Indian, who never has used tobacco or alcoholic beverages in any form. In his middle sixties and erect, with a body 6 ft., 3 inches, sturdy and strong, is a living testimony to the kind of life Many Treaties lives. Many more happy moons, old pal. We love you."
