Annotation: 

Brief mention.  The heavy coverage of the Ku Klux Klan routing of January 18, 1958 (front page of the New York TimesChicago Tribune, and Chicago Daily News; also covered in Christian Science MonitorLifeNewsweek, and U.S. News and World Report) favored the event over the situation and catered to the image of Indians as warlike.  Notes the recurrence, in media coverage of the routing, of phrases such as “on the warpath,” “Redskins stirred up,” “Natives are restless,” and “warwhooping.”
