Other evocations of American Indian cultures captured by Chicago Daily News photographers ranged from logical to bizarre. For example, during World War I, a photograph of three American Indian recruits in army training camp emphasized the variety of civilians enlisted for the war effort (DN-0068944). In 1925, an Indian man named White Calf, wearing native dress, was posed in profile so that newspaper photographers could show his likeness to the image of an American Indian on the reverse side of buffalo-head nickels (DN-0079181). In 1927, the winner of the Miss Chicago competition was posed with a young Native American woman (DN-0082755) and on another occasion that year, Mayor William Hale Thompson participated in a publicity photo opportunity with Native Americans (DN-0084328, DN-0084329). In 1928 a group of "Burlington Railroad Beauties" (DN-0085841) posed in front of Union Station with a group of young women dressed in American Indian outfits (although none of the women seem to be American Indians).
