Description

This letter dated April 8, 1941, from William Beyer to United States Senator William Langer acknowledges the receipt of Langer’s letter from April 3, 1941. The letter describes a meeting that took place on March 21, 1941, between North Dakota State Welfare Representatives and the Surplus Marketing Administration in Fargo, North Dakota, for the purposes of “plans whereby it might be possible to inaugurate the stamp plan for issuing relief supplies on Indian reservations in this state.” The letter conveys that this meeting decides “it would not be practical to adopt entirely the stamp plan on Indian reservations.” The letter cites Phillip Maguire’s enclosed letter from April 3, 1941, as the main reason the stamp plan cannot be instituted. The letter mentions that surplus commodities must still be issued for noonday lunches in schools. The letter conveys that Fort Berthold includes parts of five different counties, not all of which operate under the stamp plan. The letter expresses that Beyer believes that when the necessary relief funds are allotted for relief for the fiscal year, the stamp plan will be put into effect. The letter is stamped with the annotation “ADDRESS ONLY THE SUPERINTENDENT.”
