Endeavoring to Aid
White Earth Indians.
W i thin the past years Rota ry
Clubs have been established in all
the'principal cities of the state.
During the past summer such a
ciub has been established in De
troit and has as its members many
prominent men of that city. The
main object of such an organiza
tion is to .spread the gospel of
goodness among its fellow men,
socially, morally and commercially,
and to add to the development of
keener patriotic devotion to God,
home and country. The secretary
of the Detroit Rotary Club, Mr.
Fred Dennis, in behalf of the club
recently addressed a letter to the
Commissioner of Indian Affairs
concerning serious health condi
tions on this reservation and we
herewith publish the same. As
Mr. Dennis is a candidate for the
office of County Attorney we deem
it advisable for the reservation
public, especially the Chippewa9,
to support him in his candidacy
for the office he seeks. The letter
to the Commissioner follows:
