These newspaper clippings dated 1951 address issues regarding the United States Bureau of Land Management and the Fort Berthold Reservation. The first clipping covers the firing of Marion Clawson, Director of the United States Bureau of Land Management, and his challenge to the dismissal. A second bulletin on the same clipping notes that United States District Judge Alexander Holtzoff rule that "Negroes may legally be barred from a Federal-aided housing project where equal facilities are available elsewhere."
The second clipping covers a rejected program that would use funds awarded to the Fort Berthold Reservation as damages. It mentions that Tribal Council Chairman Martin Cross, who was also against the program, thinks there will be a path forward to a program that would be acceptable to a majority of tribal members. In closing, it notes that G. Warren Spalding from the United States Bureau of Indian Affairs will be meeting with the Tribal Council on June 16, 1951.
