These newspaper clippings dated 1951 refer to three separate topics. The first clipping reports on Marion Clawson's challenge to his dismissal as Director of the United States Bureau of Land Management. A second bulletin on the same clipping notes a ruling by United States District Judge Alexander Holtzoff that "Negroes may legally be barred from a Federal-aided housing project where equal facilities are available elsewhere."
The second clipping reports on the rejection of a program to disburse funds awarded to the Fort Berthold Reservation as damages. It reports that Tribal Council Chairman Martin Cross, who opposed the program, believes there will be a path forward to a program that is acceptable to a majority of tribal members. The article reports that G. Warren Spalding from the United States Bureau of Indian Affairs will be meeting with the Tribal Council on June 16, 1951.
