Cape Girardeau's Indian heritage
To the editor:
I grew up in Cape Girardeau. I started to school there and finished college there in 1955. I find it odd that a school which is located in a city with such a strong Indian heritage needs to change its mascot name. Will the city be compelled to change the names of Capaha and Shawnee parks and the name of the Capaha baseball team? So the change-the-name list is pared to Red Wolves and Red Hawks. I have another suggestion: Red Weasels.
Park Hills, Mo.
