W. T. Shelton has received a spe
cial invitation to attend the 11th an
nual fair of the North Navajo Indian
Agency at Ship Rock New "Mexico,
on the :!rd and 4th of October.
The booklet giving full -information
about the entries and the premium
lists contains a picture of Air. Shelton
ami under iieattl is the following:
'Dedicated to Natani Nez . 1'.
Shelton, J First Superintendent of
the Navajo Indian Reservation"
Mr. Shelton knew nothing of this
honor until his recent visit to Wash
ington in the interest of the Park
way route in North Carolina- He
looked, up- some of his obi associates
in the offices of the Department of
the Interior and was shown there the
booklet. Since his return, however, to
Waynesville he h .s been sept ohe and
also an official invitation to be the
guest of honor at the fair.
.Mr. 'Shelton was superintendent of
the Ship Rock Indian Agency on the
Navajo Reservation of New Mexico
for a period of Li years. The time
spent-, in this work was not merely
holding, a job with . Mr. Shelton. To
hini it was a real mission. From the
government records of his years of
service at the agency can easily be
found the accounts of the results of
his remarkable achievements in de
veloping the school into a modern
plant and the great transformation
not only with the youth but also
among the older Indians along , the
lines of. -.manual: training, agriculture
and stock . raising, ,
W hen Mr. Shelton lirst assumed
his duties at the reservation there was
a rough one room log cabin for the
school which still stands as- a land
mark of that, -period. It was sur
rounded in a few years by a .modern
school and executive buildings and a
splendidly developed farm and biiihL
incs that are a necessarv nart of such
naywoou , a plant:
wound i , . , ""
i. Among.. ine numerous souvenirs oi
his (lays spent with the Indians are
many beautiful rugs, baskets, ham
mered silver and other specimens' of
Indian art. For on the eve of his de
parture., after , ill health forced him
to give up the iwork. he was showered
with gifts by the Indians.
He organized the first fair held on
the reservation and this recent rec
ognition of his ,': work among the
Navajo Indians shows how far reach
ing was his inspiration to them for
improvement and development and
the affection and ' esteem -'.with w.h-ich
they still regard him.
Mr. Shelton will motor to Green
ville. S. C. and from there will take
a plane and fly to Gallup, New Mex
ico, and from that point will motor
to. Ship: Rock.
