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.
