646 REPORTS OF SUPERVISORS, OF EDUCATION. The matrons at all the Indian schools should be trained nurses. The Government should open a day school in every one of the pueblos and compel the children to attend that school. The Government should take steps to compel every Indian child of proper age and health to attend school. At present, in this district, not more than half the school population is in school. When the children return from school their for- ner companions will assist in bringing them back to their old habits. By com- pelling all to attend school a great deal of that retrogressive tendency will be conquered. Very respectfully, your obedient servant, DAVID S. KECK, The COMMISSIONER OF INDIAN AFFAIRS.District.
