schools already in the service, in
creasing the attendance to their
full capacity, and strengthening
the personnel. There are said to
be 20,000 Indian children of school
age not now in school, and fully
6,000 of this number are Navajos
who have never been to school.
An increase in the estimates for
education will be submitted, in the
hope that Congress will respond
in view of the demand.
"It is planned, if the mone.v can
be obtained, to enlarge many of
the school plants by porch and
other cheap construction and it is
also hoped that two abandoned
military posts, Fort' Wingate,
New Mexico, and Fort Apache,
Arizona, can be transferred by
the War Department to the In
terior Department, to be converted
into Indian schools. Both of
these posts are desirable and well
located, and should care for prob
ably 1,000 pupils.
"The Interior Department and
the Indian Bureau are giving
much attention to health condi
tions at the several Indian schools
and upon the different Indian res
ervations, and the present policy
is to try to have at least one hos
pital upon every reservation with
a capacity sufficient to care for
the sick, and particularly Indians
who are very aged and infirm and
without means or homes where
they can be comfortably and prop
erly cared for."

A tittle More on the
Indian and his Problem.
(By Leta Myers Smar t)
Someone has said that you can
neither do anything FOR an Indian
or WITH him that he simply wont
let you,unless^ (as I recall what
a certain former member of the
Legislative Committee of tne
Geueral Council of the Minnesota
Chippewas said), you cheat him to
A fare-you-well! That only then
will he put his faith in you im
plicitly. and think that in you and
in you alone lies the only feasible
and plausible solution of his prob
lem. And I don't know but. that
may be true,to an extent, judg
ing from the apparent hold some
shister lawyers have on some In
dians and also the hold some
shister Indians seem to have on
their own people. But isn't it
pitiable, if it is true? Isn't it
tragic to know that those who
really are the most sincere in their
desire to help the Indian cause
along get the least thanks while
those who are doing nothing more
than getting matters worse off get
all the thanks and the fees to
You cannot go about this busi
ness of being a friend to the In
dians with your eyes shut. You
can not, and be sensible and truth
ful, continually maintain that an
Indian is always right, any more
than you can say that he is always
I have been watching the Indian
problem in my little way, more or
less, for a few years, and what
impresses me more than anything
else is that none of us Indians
seem to know just where we are.
Either that, or what is worse, we
don't seem to care much about
where we are. We do a lot of
talking and a lot of going to
Washington and going back home
again, but bills continue to be
shelved, hearings before the Com
mittees continue to be refused, the
same old policy of the Indian
Bureau goes on with no signs of
abating, and we still get nowhere.
There are a million and one
things that could be said in con
nection with what we may think
is wrong, but just let me say this
If we could only substitute an
attitude that would show we
CARED for some of this indiffer
ence if we could only get more
Indians to do what they should
themselves, we might be able to
impress Congress with the fact
that there are at least some of us
who care and who are tired of aW
this tomfoolery, and Congress
might believe us.
