Navajo Tribe
Faces Crisism
Facts Reveal
President Trumlan
Calls for More Aid
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Dec. 2-The
nation's 61,000 Navajo Indians are
"threatened with hunger and cold,
this winter," President Truman
said today, and he called on the
Federal Government to "meet the
obligation of our democracy" to
them.
More help from Congressional
appropriations likely will be need-
ed late in the winter, Mr. Tru-
man said. In addition, he an-
nounced he will ask the lawmakers
in the January session to provide
for "a long range program of re-
habilitation."
As Mr. Truman issued his state-
ment, the House public lands com-
mittee introduced a $2,000000 aid
bill for the tribe, whose reserva-
tion covers an area in Arizona,
New Meqico and Utah as big as
the state of West Virginia. Chair-
man Welch (R.-Calif.) said he will
press for action at the present
special session.
Continue Present Steps
Meanwhile, Government agen-
cies will continue "the ,eps they
are taking to alleviate suffering
and to forestall a serious collapse
in Navajo community life," the
President said in a statement.
He made public a report of Sec-
retary of the Interior Krug de-
scribing the plight of the tribe.
Krug asserted the tribe is facing
"emergency conditions which re-
quire the full aid of the federal
government guarding against star-
vation on their reservation this
winter," despite their appropria-
tion of $143,000 of their own funds
from the sale of tribal timber to
meet the emergency.
The Krug report said the tribe's
lands as now developed, will not
support its increasing numbers.
Historic Factors
It said conditions facing the
tribe result from factors reach-
ing back as far as 80 years. The
tribe numbers 61,000 today, as
against less than 10,000 in 1868,
Krug said. Its resources at present
"will support not more than 35,-
000 persons at a minimum level of
living," he estimated.
Krug reported that the plight
of the tribe has become greater
during the last two years.
Krug said a proposed long-,
range program would be carried
out over a ten-year period and
provide education, health and
other public service facilities, de-
velopment of resources and assist-
ance in employment.

young folks, are numerous record
albums varying from children's
stories to symphonic works, a
large number of boxes of stereo-
scopic pictures with viewers, and
games galore. Many of the items
were well worn, attesting to their
popularity.
The basic philosophy behind the
Galen hospital program was ex-
pressed by Dorothy Ketcham, di-
rector of social service in the hos-
pital. Miss Ketcham who was
largely responsible for the incep-
tion of the Galen Shop 19 years
ago, said:
"All children are entitled to
four freedoms: the freedom of
choice, freedom for expression,
freedom for education, and free-
dom for fun. The Galen Shop is
based on this philosophy, and in
so far as possible, boys and girls
have a free choice of activity;
they have ample opportunity to
express themselves creatively, to
learn, and to have fun."
