These Indian figures were used along with Cowboy replicas. That is why many of these toys were damaged over time. These are from 1964. I was fortunate, over time, to collect  these Indians with their bows and other weapons undamaged.

Phone Trivia: 1:The world's first female telephone operator was named Emma M. Nutt.
2: Sitcom characters on TV rarely say "goodbye" when they hang up the phone.

Did You Know?   Who was the first man in space? Believe it or not, it was not an astronaut. It was test pilot Joe Kittinger. In 1960, he was assigned to discover whether an astronaut could survive an aborted mission, even 20 miles (32km) above the Earth. Kittinger rose to 102,800 ft(31,330km) by balloon and then jumped out. He was so high that initially he felt no wind resistance. He fell for 4 minutes and 36 seconds, reaching a maximum speed of 614 mph (988 km/h), before opening his parachute at 18,000 ft (5,500m). (A giant leap for mankind)
