Excerpt: is possible for natives to acquire deer by purchase as well as by service as apprentices at reindeer stations, on condition that the purchaser make proper provision for the care of his reindeer. Forms of contract have been prepared for use in turning over reindeer to missions in Alaska, in accordance with the provisions of the act of March 4, 1907 (34 Stat. L., p. 1338), such reindeer to be held in trust for distribution among the natives of Alaska. These contracts provide that the net income derived by mission societies from the reindeer enterprise shall be devoted to the support of apprentices in the reindeer industry. Forms of agreement, to be signed by natives of Alaska upon entering the reindeer service as apprentices and by trained herders upon satisfactorily completing the four years of apprenticeship, have also been prepared. In order to enable the local superintendents to keep complete and systematic record of affairs at the reindeer stations in Alaska, blank forms have been prepared for their use, showing the number and ownership of the reindeer, the efficiency of the apprentices and herders, and receipts and expenditures in connection with each station. Other forms have been prepared for the use of local superintendents and natives throughout the year in keeping a record of supplies received and issued at the station and of all cash receipts and disbursements, and for the making of the prescribed annual reports.
