The grandson of the last hereditary chief of the Okla- homa Iowas, Sine was elected tribal chairman In Septem- ber, 1969. His grandfather, Charles Tohee, died in 1930, and since then, leaders of the Iowa have been elected by the tribe. As tribal chairman, Sine helped to obtain money for In.. dlan families. '*The money was compen- sation for lands taken from the Indians for settlement. Pre- sident Nlxon signed a bill pay- ing Indian families $1700 per head for compensations", Sine said. Sine has a souvenir from that occassion, the President pre- sented him with a pen he used to sign the document. The money received was us- ELZIE ed to buy clothes, supplies, to help home improvement, and was planned for children to re- i!to proylde children with educa- cleve $50 a piece when they lion, according to Sine. started school each year," Sine To obtain the money, Sine said said. a claim was made through the Sine also helped to provide U.S. Court of Claims. housing programs with the help To help support the claim of the Department of Housing Urban Development, HUD. "We have an agreement with the Sac and Fox, they have the privilege of building on our land and we have the privilege to building theirs." "The HUD program provides money to b~y land and build houses at low interest rates, cheaper than what they normal- ly cost," Sine said. "The deparment provides certain types of floor plans to be used in building and if the family helps out in the main- tenance and cleanup of the grounds while their house is being built, the hours they spend count toward equity in the house2' "So far 11 or 12 families have houses in this area through this program,*' Sine said. Before he resigned as tribal chairman last October, Sine said he was working on in- dustrial development, and said he is glad to see such pro- grams carried through now. "The government has money for such Indian programs, and if someone wants to get money for industrial develoDment, aH they have to do is write a good proposal." If individual influence pol- Iticians, organizations do, and reports made by early ex- *plorers telling of Iowas spot- ted In certain areas were gath- ered, Sine said. Iowas are divided into two bands, Sine said. "There are the Oklahoma and Kansas Iowas and the Oklahoma Iowas2' Oklahomas Iowas num- ber over 250 and are scat- tered throughout the state." Before it was opened to sett- lement around 1889, Iowa land encompassed the area bounded by the south bank of the Clm- arron River to the north bank of the Deep Fork River, and from the present Highway 18 to the Indian Meridian located about 12 miles west of Still- water. While leading the Iowas, Sine also implemented a health program. "A local health official would take prescriptions and have them filled for the elderly or sick who conldo't get around." Of a five m~Hion dollar grant given to Indian peoples, Slne's Iowas received $100,000. Sine invested some to mis money in Oklahoma banks to draw inter- est, the rest went into dental and health programs.

Uncle Sam, selling good will over the world, is about in the same predicament as the old boy who sold mlstletow all his life and never got a kiss. I believe that in 1960the Am- erican public will be looking for a presidential candidate with more soundness and less sounding off. R is not unusual nowadays to hear an argument on a subject that neither person knows any- thing about. Whether or not you've ever gone camping before, having on hand the basic camping gear--plus the tips in this article-may make it a lot easier for you to take off for a weekend, or v;eeks, of outdoor fun. DO mark up route maps early. The service station may be out of them on the day you plan to leave. DON'T arrive at night and expect to set up camp in the dark. DO make sure your tent is long enough forthe tallest member of your group. DON'T expect to find a babbling brook for deinking and washing water wherever you go.
