S. Boys' Working Reserve Governor Peter Norbeek sends as a copy of bis latest^ proclama tion which says:—• 11 ,* The world is at the brink of starvation. Devastated Europe lies before u*. Armenia is perishing. The demands upon the U.S.ofAm erica for a division of her food supply with the starving peoples of the earth were never so great as tlO'V. Last year So.Dakota, stood amona: the states uf the I niou in the production of food. This was in large part due to the Buys' Working Reserve. They did a splendid work in substituting for our 32000 brave men who were sol diering at the front". The demands upon South Dako ta for a large food supply this year will be even greater than in 191S. In order to meet this unu sual situation, we must again have the help of our industrious boys. The week of Jan. 20-25th having been proclaimd by the national government as a time for enroll ment of all rite boys of the Union in this important work—therefore I, Peter Norbeck, governor South Dakota, by virtue of the au thority lodged iu me by the con stitution and lnws of this state, do hereby PROCLAIM and set apart the week .begining January 20th 1919 a.s State Enrollment Week in South Dakota for of the United Staces Boys Working Reserve, during which period 1 earnestly request all the boys of our state, 16 years of age and over, who are not otherwise permanently^ employd, -to enroll in this organization, with their respective county commit tees, and to lend their necessary aid in producing a record-break ing crop in 1919 with which to help feed the starving millions in every FIVE INDIANS MEMBERS OF CON GRESS Ambrose Traversio hands us a copy of the North East Argus, of Minneapolis, dated Noy. 30 last, which contains an account of the late meeting of the Society of American Indians at Pierre, with I request that we copy the said account. As the article is rather lengthy, we are able to giye only the following extracts: "The Society of Am. Indians is asking that the red race be siven the rights of full citizenship. Not content to be wards of the nation, they want to be free. With 6000 Indian boys fighting across the sea for freedom, while their mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, are not enjoying free dom, but are caged up in reserva tions, it does not appear to be a square deal. 1 '•The hieh and noble principles for wHch the war was waged must ie applied to the Indians—free dom, equal rights, democracy, hu manity and justice.

"It would be a disgrace to our civilization should the country re fuse lo grant, full citizenship to the Indians. The war was fought for freedom, the Indians helpt to win it, and now to denv 1 hem the bless ing of freedom aiid citizenship in this land of liberty and equal rights would be hypooricy. "All of frr-e Rev. Dr. -Ashley is in the City en route to the Agency to attend a meeting of the clergy from yarious parts of the reserva tion to be held this evening.
