 i PeIitions Seek Home Rule Amendment Petitions are being circulated by the North Dakota League of Municipalities, calling for amend- ment of the state constitution so that North Dakota cities and villages may adopt home rule charters. A total of 20,000 valid signa- tures must be filed with the secretary of state &apos;by July 9th if the proposal is to get a place on the Nov. 6til general election ballot. Ted Hardmeyer, mayor of Mott and president of the League, said the organization's executive committee approved circulating the petitions. H. W. Holt, League executive secretary, was directed to draw up the amendment. Said Hardmeyer: "It is the hope of the League of Municipali- ties through the proposed consti- tutional amendment, to give to the towns and villages of this state the maximum measure of self-determination within the framework of the state Con- stitution." Hardmeyer also said, "The pro- posed measure should help bring about, a local government, that will be closest to the people af- fected by the laws and will re- turn local government to the de- termination of the people in the home town." The proposal to circulate peti- tions was made originally by Fargo Mayor Herschel Lashko- witz in a letter to Holt. The state convention of the league passed a resolution in Oc- tober of last year to have such an amendment drawn up. Holt noted the league repre- sents more than 98 per cent of the people who live in incorpor- ated towns and villages in the state.

"'Based on my personal ob- servation in the state the past few days," he said, "and reports from the coanty ASCS committ- ees, the heavy rain will pre- vent many farmers from plant- ig their durum allotments. "It seems grossly unfair to penalize farmers who cannot comply through no fault of their own." Burdiek asserted. The department of agriculture advised Burdick the inequity cannot be corrected by admin- istration action since the pro- visions are written into the law. "I am introducing a bill im- mediately to amend the durum section," Burdick announced, "so that price supports are not lost when compliance has been pre- vented by adverse weather con- ditions." $35.2 BILUON $95,2 BlUlON 100% 100% sot,At  INSURANCE,i I.;:.:.'!|: WaFAilt /::: 3.o.I. /--:i:t; :! 33. t" ' ' "=':'f':':|i 1950 DISTRIBUTION 196:; $ TOTAL EX 60 I I EDUCATION SOaAL INSUlANCE  rg:.':::::t $01 & WEtFARE 1950 1955 HEALTH /:f/ 1950 IIILUON$ $ .100 / / 1962 1961 1960 $514 PER CAPITA ...........

Iadians Must ,00xe00nd On (Iwa Feei' The only solution for the Indian people is for them to stand on their own feet and stop using the Bureau of Indian Af- fairs as a crutch, a U. S. Senate subcommittee was told by a Sioux tribal official at a hear- ing recently in Minot on con- stitutional rights of Indians. The hearing, conducted by the Senate Judiciary subcommittee on constitutional rights, was held in the Ward County Courthouse with Sen. Quentin Burdick pre- siding. In his opening statement, Burdick noted subcommittee hearings held in Washington last year called attention to three areas affecting Indian citizens. They are the commitment and treatment of insance and mental- ly ill Indians residing on the reservoir, the non-availability of services of special schools for juvenile offenders and the law and order systems under courts of Indian offenses and tribal courts. Burdick said he felt constitu- tional rights problems affecting Indians should be heard publicly and he was pleased to have the opportunity to preside at this hearing. Theodore Jamerson, secretary of the Standing Rock Sioux Judiciary Committee, noted pro- gress his has made in re- cent months. Jamerson said, "The law and order system at Standing Rock is as different now as night from day. The clouds have a silver lining now. The Indians were under the Bureau of Indian At" fairs over 100 years. We now have taken the bull by the hornS, are trying to do our own think" ing and to consider the $ut.ure of our people. Where tri judges once were appointed bY the bureau and confirmed bY the tribal council, we now al point our own judges for burea confirmation."
