Description

This memorandum dated February 21, 1955, from unknown author to United States (US) Senator William Langer, written on US Senate memorandum stationery, reads:

"Senator: Mr. Chumbers [sic] called, said he has talked to Commissioner Emmons, but Mr. Emmons has been unable to clear with the Secretary of the Interior as to the Federal government's reimbursing the State of N. Dak. for their expenses. Because of the Holiday tomorrow, he may not get a report from the Secretary before Thursday."

"Mr. Chumbers" most likely refers to Pete Chumbris, to whom other documents in the Langer papers of this period refer.

"Commission Emmons" most likely refers to Glenn L. Emmons, Commissioner of the United States (US) Bureau of Indian Affairs.
