The managers on the part of the House at the conference on the disagreeing votes of the two Houses on the amendment of the Senate to the bill (H. R. 12571) to provide for the transportation of school children in the District of Columbia at a reduced fare, submit the following written statement in explanation of the effect of the action agreed upon by the conferees and recommended in the accompanying conference report:
The House recedes from its disagreement to the amendment of the Senate, with an amendment. The Senate amendment struck out all after the enacting clause and inserted a substitute. Under the terms of this substitute the Public Utilities Commission would be empowered and directed to establish reduced rates of fare for school children, provided that such rates would not be in excess of one-half the adult fare on street cars and busses in the District of Columbia. The amendment agreed upon by the conferees has the effect of restricting the commission to a maximum rate of 3 cents for children going to or from school.

RAY LYMAN WILBUR, Secretary.
DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR,
In the attached letter of February 11, 1931, from Hon. Scott Leavitt, chairman of the House Committee on Indian Affairs request is made for report on H. R. 17037, a bill for the enrollment of children born after December 30, 1919, whose parents, or either of them, are members of the Blackfeet Tribe of Indians in the State of Montana, and for other purposes.
The bill provides, briefly, that children born to a member of the tribe after December 30, 1919, and alive six months after the enactment of the bill, are to be enrolled to share only in such tribal property, benefits, or money as may hereafter be distributed.
Under the act of June 30, 1919 (41 Stat. 3-16), these tribal rolls were closed for all purposes by this department December 30, 1919, as therein required—no additional names to be added thereafter.
As the Blackfeet tribal council has requested on behalf of the tribe that the action contemplated in the bill he had, this office sees no objection thereto. It is accordingly recommended that H. R. 17037 receive the favorable consideration of Congress.
C. J. RHOADS, Commissioner.
