The letter from the second assist

take up the fight for the Indian water

Mr. Hauke is interpreted as meaning
that the government will take inde

Major Swartzlander is greatly inter
ested in having the reservation rights
e&tablished and is hopeful that the
courts will rule the Indians are en
titled to water whether they rent their
lands or do work in person. The ma
jor is also of the belief that if the
rights are proven It will become good
policy to construct a storage reser

the flood waters of the river.
