The Honorable Elmer Thomas resubmits a previous claim as the same charge against the Indian Tribal trust fund for services performed on behalf of the Sac and Fox Tribe of Indians, Oklahoma. The claim was authorised by said tribe for services authorised by the Indian Council.

I am of the opinion that the instant claims are not claims "against the United States" with in the meaning of the act of October 9, 1940. Accordingly, I am directing the allowance of the said claim in the amount of $36.67, covering the period June 12 to 19, 1931, if otherwise correct, but, as hereinbefore set out, the action of this office in disallowing the other claim in the amount on $36.32 appears correct and may not be distributed.
