and in direct line with the Declaration of Policy, promulgated
April 17, 1917.
In this connection I will further invite your attention to sections
246 and 247 of existing school rules. These requirements as to at
tendance of Indian children in public schools must be complied with
in all cases where Indian children have reasonable access thereto
and where such children may be received without valid objection
from the public school authorities, whether or not upon payment or
tuition. As to Indian children not under Federal supervision, you
should exercise your influence and give your assistance whenever
opportunity offords toward the reception of such children by the
State public schools.
An acknowledgement of this circular and the amendments
should be made at this time, but I wish a full report on or before
October 30, advising me just what steps you have taken, are taking,
and the effect of these new rules on the enrollment of pupils in
your school, as well as the results secured in getting parents and
pupils to contribute toward the expense of the pupils' education and
support.
CATO SELLS,
Commissioner.
