Taklng advantage of the lull
Chalruiau Hnyder reported his bill
tu reorgunlzii the Indian service and
expedite the settlement 01 Indian
claims. The reorganization Is closely
bound up with the fight finyder
niado on the floor Suturday to bring
the Indian appropriation bill back lo
tno liiniun committee.
Snyder In his report quotes testi
mony of the report of tho necrctnry
of Interior in 1914 to sltow that
many Indians are ivudy for the lull
duties of citizenship. Tho Indian
bureau Is now fighting reorganiza
tion. Snyder churgvd duplication In
work, saying the Indian bureau
overlaps the national forest service,
the reclamation service and the pub
lic health service.
Make Onuses Cltloii'..
It Is Important that u law be en
acted making the Usago tribe citi
zens. Hnyder said.
" Tho supremo court of the stnto of
Oklahoma han already held that

izens of the United Htatc. but the
mutter has not bocu pnrncd upon by
the suprcmu court of tb- t'nltcd

Dealing with thn reorganization
of the Indian bureuu the report
says; ,

"It Is reullzed by your. eomnilHcn
that there necessarily will bo sev
