Material is available to interested persons which shows that an association for retarded children works closely with the medical profession, health, welfa r e and educational agencies. It c o m- man, but also about Indians living now in the Great Lakes area," Riley said. Indians, he exclaimed, showed prospectors the locations of the famous Ontonagon Boulder and of iron ore outcroppings. This led to the first mining operations in the Upper Peninsula. Early explorers, missionaries and fur traders used the well known Lac Vieux Desert-L'Anse reservations to provide Indian employment. About 40 Indians have employed in new plants in the vicinity of Wisconsin reservations. Any youngster.

Without Indian assistance, Riley went on to say, the general land office surveyors of the last century would have found it almost impossible to accomplish their jobs in the U. P. Indians kept supply lines open. Transportation then, too, was benefit- ted by Indian canoes, paddlers and portagers. In the White Pine logging days, Indians were proficie n t sent to two years of training at vocational schools. All expenses are paid in these cases and the entire family can be moved to the city where the vocational school is located. Riley said that a fundamental aim is to provide fullest possible opportunity to Indians to attain economic! self-sufficiency and b e' c o m e I good citizens. j Riley then announced that] construction of a 20 family unitj housing development at a cost of $325,000 has been started at Lac du Flambeau. Sim i 1 a r developments are proposed for the reservations in Michigan. Aged persons, ADC cases and other low income people will occupy these homes. The family rental rates will be $35 a month. In addition, some "self-help" housing is being provided. In such cases the government provides supervision and materials. The prospective owner provides at least $2,000 worth of labor. After 11-13 years, if the home is properly maintained, title in the .home may be vested in the oc- • cupant-builder. worth, celebrated ' her eig h t hi top loaders and log drive white 3:30, at new school on East Cin- nebar Street, Bessemer.

A photostatic copy of the land patent issued by President Abraham Lincoln to the chief of the Lac Vieux Desert band of Chippewa Indians was brought to the meeting by Victor Lemmer and presented to Ril e y. The Bureau of Indian Affai r s has its agency office at Ashland in the Post Office Building and employes 40 persons, Riley stated. The agency's office is organized, according to Riley, into divisions of education, forestry, industrial development, soc i a 1 service, realty and lands, and public housing. R i 1 e y is in charge of this office and the four reservations in Michi g a n and the 10 reservations in Wisconsin. He described the Michigan reservations which are the Hannahville Reservation, 12 miles southeast of Escanaba, which has 3,600 acres of tribal lands, and is attempting to better its poor lot by obtaining ,an electrical power line under a new Office of Economic Opportunity Program. The Bay Mills Reservat i o n has 1,600 acres of tribal lands and is located 23 miles west of Sault Ste. Marie. The Saginaw- Chippewa Reservation, with 1,600 acres of tribal lands at Mt. Pleasant, was the site of the Indian Boarding School prior to the 1934. The largest reservation is at Baraga. Here there are 8,000 acres of tribal lands and 1,800 acres of allotted land. Indescribing such land allotments, Riley said that these were made in the period from 1864-1904, with individuals receiving 80 acre parcels as a result of treaties with the United States. Heirship problems make for difficulties today. In some cases, there are as many as 150 living heirs involved for the same parcel of land. Some shares are valued at only a few cents. One 40 acre allotment sold last summer for $36,000 The Bureau handles all sales of allotment lands. The Indian owners first make the request that the sale be made. The Bureau handles the equitable distribution of sale proceeds. No dole or pension is paid ! the Indians, Riley said. Moines distributed by the agency to the ! Indians are derived from re- 1 turns on Indian land sales, oil j leases and timber sales. Riley cy was much appreciated by Rotarians. Maurice Bennett will Methodist. The Rev. James .iilliard, pastor.
