THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER !, 1049 American Indians Self Sufficient Federal Supervision To Be Discontinued by Inferior Department WASHINGTON — The American Indian has taken another small but important step toward independence and self-sufficiency. The Interior Department disclosed that it had discontinued government supervision over certain tribal affairs of two Indian tribes _ the Saglnaw Chippewa of Michigan and the Slockbridsc-Munsee of Wisconsin. It was the first harvest from the Indian Reorganization Act, of 1034 (IRA), the Indian version of the New Deal, which was designed to make all Indians some day Independent, economically and politically. ^ The IRA set up a plan under •Xihich Indians could work their way out of the status of government wards by proving themselves self supporting and capable of self-government. After a period of years they could gain their independence either through a vote of the tribe, or by permission of the .secretary of interior. The two tribes were the lirst to apply for freedom and the first to get it. Many others seem ready for it but can't seem to make up their mind^ about some matters—such as whether the new set-up should continue communal tribal owncr.shtn of lumber, Brazing and other lands and enterprises. All Assimilated Each of the.se two tribes contains about 50 Indians. Both are predominantly of mixed blood and are well assimilated in their communities, enjoying the same working and social conditions as other Americans there. Their new status gives them all BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS "MISS VENUS"—Pretty Beverly Coltiewcll, IK, shows the figure which won her the title, ''Miss Venus," in a French bathing suit contest.

U.S. Marines' Ground Reserves Landing From Air This Summer NEW YORK —(NBA)— When the Marine Reserves land this sum- uer, they'll land by air. The Corps' Organized Ground Marine Reserve Mil travel t° »nd from summer .raining camps by plane, for the first such mass movement. The Marines decided to use air transportation for reserves for two reasons, First, (he Reserves will get a look-see at the science of moving Iroops by air, Second, the use of planes will cut the travel time, thereby giving the Reserves more actual training days at the camps. All told, some 12,100 Marine Reserves will be airlifted to and from camps at Camp Lejeune, N. C.; Camp Pendleton, Calif.; Little Creek. Va., and Quantico, Va. The longest single flight was the movement of the 14th Infantry Battalion, USMCR. from Camp Pendleton to its home base at Houston, Tex. The largest number of troops to be transported in one flight Is the 3rd Infantry Battalion of St. Louis. Mo,, which flew from Norfolk. Va., to St. Louis with 372 troops. Although this will be the first mass movement of Ground Reserves by air. Marine pilots have proved this to be a quick and safe means of transportation. During last year's Atlantic Fleet Exercises in the Caribbean, Marine pilots flew some 13,000 troops approximately 2,235,000 passenger miles to and from the maneuver area without a fatal' accident.

The bulk of the Indian population Is heavily dependent on Uncle Sam for all kinds of welfare, educational and medical assistance. In the 12 months ending last June 30, they cost the government $44,310,314. The program of the Indian Service for .some yrar.s has been designed to get the Indians on their feet and off the taxpayers' necks as rap- j Idly as passible. But the government j has learned through painful and expensive experience that thus cannot be done all at once, despite repeated clamor for just giving the Indian what is coming to him and letting him shift for himself. Always Return That has been tried repeatedly in jjhe history of the republic, and each "irne the Indian has come hack after a. generation or so, penniless, disease-ridden ami direly In need of public care. When he has been given full rights to his property he has usually dissipated it through his own improvidence and the machinations of white land grabbers. Now the idea is first to prepare the Indian tor freedom: Teach him how to farm, raise cattle, fish, engage in lumbering and get jobs in his community. Educate him, teach him self-government, restore his pride in his race and culture, and gradually let. him get used to taking care of himsejl—learning primarily as much n.s the whiteman does, about the value of the dollar. The Indian Service has estimated that about 53.000 Indians are now ready economically and educationally to make the new adjustment. -Another 75.000, it says, may be re^dy min five to 10 years.
