A good many of the tribe have accumulated large herds of live stock and on death the division of this property involves no little difficulties as the older men generally insist on its division according to the ola" clan" method. However, after fully explaining the legal method of division and what the state laws are regarding same there has been no disposition to oppose the new method. The only individual Indian moneys are those derived by pupils from the Navajo schools working in the beet fields which amounted to about$ 3, 500 this year and has been used, in the main, for the purchase of sheep to start a herd so that on becoming grown they would be on a self supporting basis. Respectfully, MIN * queta Superintendent.
