More than 500 people packed the auditorium of the elementary school Saturday to dedicate a 10-cent stamp honoring Oglala Sioux Chief Red Cloud. The 10-cent stamp is the 38th in the U.S. Postal Service's Great American Series. A single-color brick red, it bears a head-and-shoulders pose of the chief. Red Cloud was the only chief to defeat the U.S.

We entered Red Cloud from the east, just as novelist Willa Cather and her family did in 1884, when she was just 11 years old. The Cathers arrived by train at the Burlington & Missouri Railroad depot, in those days the usual portal into the small but growing prairie settlement. My wife, Laurel, and I, on the other hand, had no choice but to travel by car along Nebraska Highway 1, a pleasant two-lane road that was as straight as the railroad tracks, though it rose and dipped in places over pleasantly undulating hills.

The mystery sweeps across these desolate grasslands like a cold, haunting wind. For nearly 70 years, it has been a consistent drumbeat of cluttered life in the biggest village on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. The streets here have no names. The houses have no numbers. Some residents use faded blankets for window panes, splintered outhouses for relief.

Happy Birthday, Willa: Humorist Garrison Keillor plans a live, two-hour broadcast on National Public Radio Dec. 7 from Red Cloud, Neb., to mark writer Willa Cather's birth in 1873. Cather spent her childhood in the small south-central Nebraska town and it inspired such books as "My Antonia," "O Pioneers!" and "Song of the Lark."

Boxes of new toys are piling up at the local office of the Red Cloud American Indian Society, a nonprofit organization that will deliver the items to tribal reservations as part of its annual Christmas benefit. The group hopes to provide 8,500 holiday presents to children on reservations in North Dakota, South Dakota and Montana.

Native Priss, ridden by Gary Stevens, led from the start and won the $22,000 feature race at Hollywood Park Wednesday by three-quarters of a length. Little Red Cloud, ridden by Pat Valenzuela, finished second, 3 1/2 lengths in front of Time For Sakarto, ridden by Fernando Toro. The 6-5 favorite, Penasco, ridden by Chris McCarron, finished fourth in a field of six horses, 3 years old and up. Native Priss raced 6 1/2 furlongs over a fast track in 1:16 1/5 and earned $12,100 for the victory.

Bolger Magic, a 2-year old gelding, held off favored Little Red Cloud to win the 34th running of the Graduation Stakes, a $50,000-added race for 2-year-olds bred in California, by a nose Wednesday at Del Mar race track. And while the crowd of 18,135 reacted to the photo-finish sign being removed, the two jockeys involved agreed that the two horses involved were young. "He just fooled around out there," said jockey Laffit Pincay of his horse, Little Red Cloud. "He broke on top and dropped back.

Here in the southeastern corner of Nebraska lie two country towns with a common boast: Each was home to a writer who won wide acclaim and popularity for the deft way she defined her time and place here. Willa Cather, of Red Cloud, wrote fiction, poetry and essays and won the Pulitzer Prize in 1922; her "My Antonia" is on countless high school required-reading lists.

The article by Barbara Malone on Red Cloud, Neb., ("Willa Cather's Nebraska," April 7) caught my eye. My late grandfather, Dean Furse, was the publisher/editor of the town paper The Red Cloud Chief. The Red Cloud Chief is still owned by my grandmother, Barbara Furse and the publisher/editor credit goes to my uncle, Roger Furse. Red Cloud is a wonderful place to visit. The people are very friendly and Red Cloud itself has beautiful blue skies and is a clean, wholesome midwest environment.
