For an additional amount for support of Indian day and industrial schools and for other educational purposes, fifty thousand dollars.

The Secretary of the Interior is directed to place on the books of the Treasury to the credit of the Lower Brule Sioux Indians in South Dakota, out of any money in the Treasury not otherwise appropriated, the sum of fifty thousand dollars, to be immediately available, said sum to be expended under the direction of the Secretary of the Interior in the purchase of cattle, mares, and stallions, or for such other purposes as he may deem to be for the best interests of the Indians: Provided, That the same shall be reimbursed to the United States from the first proceeds received from the sale of the lands described in the act of April twenty-first, nineteen hundred and six (Thirty-fourth Statutes at Large, one hundred and twenty-five), belonging to said Lower Brule Indians.
