In the winter of 1792-3 two pi-
rouges (canoe-like boats) were de-
tached from Detroit passing withdift1
interruption from the Huron River.
Entering Lake Erie, they glided on to
Grand River, which falls into Lake
Michigan, by means of the risen4
the heads of the two streams. Tis
statement, taken from an 1817 number
of the Western Gazetteer, along with
numerous maps, some of which are
more than 200 years old, have aided
Prof. Wilbert B. Hinsdale, cutodian
of Michigan Archaeology at the Mu-
seum, in wrtiing his latest paper, "In-
dians' Modes and Paths of Travel in
Michigan."
Chapter one of this paper deals1
with the waterways, and is illustrated
by a map made by Professor Hins-
dale, which shows in detail all the
waterways and portages in the state
used by the early InhabitantZ4..f"
fore the forest and brush cbvr__Ws
removed," states the author,. "the
depth of water in the channels was
more regular and never got so low as
it does since clearing was dohe, thed
swamps drained, and the ditIes ug.
The steam shovel, as well as the
woodsman's axe, has accelerated the
run-off of the surface water which

at one time was sufficient to buoy
up an Indian's dug-out... There was
more long-distance travel upon the
water than there was overland, ex-
cept during the winter months When
the lakes and streams were obstruct-
ed by ice."
The writer further asserted that
"streams brought the primitive hunt-
ers into immediate contact with a
hafge quantity of their food supplies,
such as wild rice, fish, geese, ducks,
aifd swans. The best fur-bearing ani-
m is as beavers, mink, muskrats, and
s eral others whose skins and flesh
we e desired, were never found -far
from the water."
iErofessor Hinsdale's map collec-
tioa ig comprised of many valuable
old originals. A 1723 map of the
"Country of 5 Nations" (northeastern
United States and southeastern Can-
ada) shows the principal trails and
portages of this district at that time.
Another original, drawn sometime
'Previous to 1-32, shows the old paths
of -travel of what is now Washtenaw
county. This- map also points out how
many of the present highways follow
practically the same course as did the
former trails. For instance M-17 be-
tween Detroit and Ann Arbor follows

almost identieally a trail which, ac-
cording to this map connected De-,
"Anarburg."
Professor -mIiusdale plans to begin
work soon on the sccOnld chapter of
"Indians' Modes and Methods of Tra-
vel in Michigan." This section will
deal with their overland travel.

Two lectures will be given 1 y Prof.
Oscar J. Campbell of the English de-
partment on March 17 and 18 at the
University of Wisconsin. Professor
Campbell will discuss the plays of
Shakespeare, tracing Shakespare's
development through the period in
which the Italian intiuence .on his
work was most pronounced, to the time
of the greatest originality in his writ-
ings.
