It was autumn, and the Red Indians asked their New Chief if the winterwas going to be cold or mild. Since he was a Red Indian chief in amodern society, he couldn't tell what the weather was going to be. Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, he replied to his Tribe that thewinter was indeed going to be cold and that the members of the villageshould collect wood to be prepared. But also being a practical leader, after several days he got an idea.He went to the phone booth, called the National Weather Service andasked 'Is the coming winter going to be cold?' 'It looks like this winter is going to be quite cold indeed,'the weather man Responded. So the Chief went back to his people and told them to collect evenmore wood. A week later, he called the National Weather Service again.'Is it going to be a very cold winter?' 'Yes,' the man at National Wea ther Service again replied, 'It'sdefinitely going to be a very cold winter.' The Chief again went back to his people and ordered them to collectevery scrap of wood they could find. Two weeks later, he called theNational Weather Service again. 'Are you absolutely sure that thewinter is going to be very cold?' 'Absolutely,' The Man replied. 'It's going to be one of thecoldest winters ever.' 'How can you be so sure?' the Chief asked. The weatherman replied, 'The Red Indians are collecting wood like Crazy.'
