Young was given the award in recognition of his outstanding work in the development and publication of the Navajo Yearbook. In making the presentation General Superintendent G. Warren Spaulding noted that "The Yearbook has been well received, not only among the Bureau staff, but by the interested public generally, as evidenced by the many congratulatory letters w@ have received since the document became available." The Navajo Yearbook is compiled by the Bureau. It contains an appendix of descriptive and statistical in formation essential to sound program planning, and broad understanding of Navajo problems. The publication also contains a detailed report of the previous year's accomplishments under both the Long Range and the Regular programs. The Bureau and the Tribe, in conformity with commissioner Emmons policy of looking ahead to discern and prepare for future prob lems before they arise, are now planning for the coming years. The yearbook thus becomes an important planning document. Mr. Nelson who came to the Navajo. Agency in 1954 has developed, for the first time in the Navajo history, a modern, well equipped organized police force on the Reservation. The force is composed of 87 officers. Os these only six of them are not Navajos. Mr. Nelson's patient planning, technical knowledge 8 and skill in working cooperatively and harmoniously with the Navajo people in development of a Police Force modeled after the best in the nation has been recognized by the Department,of the Interior in the award of much deserved Certificate of Superior Performance. Mr. Paul Krause entered on duty as Range Conser vationist at the Navajo Agency in 1952. At that time the long disputed revision of regulations governing grazing on the Navajo Reservation was approaching its climax. Since the Livestock Reduction period of the 1930's livestock and grazing privileges had been the subject of continuous controversy between the Navajo people and the Deparment of the Interior. In 1948 the Secretary of Interior extended to the Navajo Tribe the opportunity to revise the Reservation Grazing Regula tions in a form more acceptable to Navajo stockmen. Fraught with emotion and fear, the issue was peren nially a subject of heated Council discussions until, in 1953, a system of District Grazing Committees was established by the Council to jointly work out a set of revised Grazing Regulations. Mr. Krause's patient and skillful leadership brought direction to the work of the District Grazing Committees. This ultimately resulted in the adoption of a new set of Grazing Regulations by the Tribal Council. These were approved by the Secretary of the Interior on April 25, 1956. In recognition of the important part played by Mr. Krause, he received the Interior Department Superior Performance Award.
