Old Henry is an Ottawa Indian.
Rather he was an Indian-for he
is now dead. Old Henry's disap-
pearance was not that of himself,
but the loss of his life-size bust,
sculptured and cast several years
ago by Carleton W. Angell, Univer-
sity artist, with a studio in the
mnuseums building.
Several summers ago Angell mo-
tored up to the Mesaukee Indian
preserve with the intention of mak-
ing miniature models of earthworks
Cand entrenchments s c a t t e r e d
throughout the district. With 300
pounds of plaster and 100 pounds
of clay he was ready to begin work.'
At the same time he harbored a
desire to model one member each
of the three tribes inhabiting Mich-
igan, the Ottawas, the Chippewas,
and the Pottowatomies.
'Henry' Angel's First Model.
Seeing an opportunity to begin
his series of busts, he inquired for
a model. With the aid of a nearby
farmer and some persuasion, an
old Indian was obtained as a fit
subject for the plaster study. Not
only Old Henry, but "all Indians
show great outlines of character in
their faces," remarked Angell as
he told of Henry's history. He at-
tributed their strong facial char-
acteristics to their continual life in
the outdoors.
Angell brought the Indian's like-
ness back, cast it and placed it on
a pedestal in the museum rotunda.
During a night more than a year
and a half ago, it disappeared, pos-
sibly at the hand of some culprit
in search of curios.
Finally Found In Basement.
Miss Geneva Smithe, secretary of
the University museum, tells of its
return in the February issue of the
Ark, museum publication.
"The other day a person, presum-
ably an innocent bystander, ap-
proached Dr. Leslie A. White of the
department of anthropology, stated
that an Indian head had been
found in a rooming-house base-
ment, and promised its return if no
queQstiQns would be asked. It was
returned, no questions were asked,
and the- department of anthropo-
logy turned over to Mr. Angell his
old friend, who was none the worse
for his experience. No reward can
be offered, unfortunately, for the
scalp of the offender."
regular meetings will be held every
Sunday afternoon at the same time
and place. All students of an Evan-
gelical Christian faith are cordially
invited to' affiliate themselves with
this group.

TULSA, Okla., Feb. 20.--If bea-
cons can be found in statistics of
!petroleum economists, fairer wea-
ther lies ahead for the American
oil industry.
The industry experienced trou--
blous times last year, but finds new
hope in the following statistics, re-
vealing the situation in February:
Daily average production of crude
oil in the United States less by
530,000 barrels than on July 1, 1930.
Number of drilling wells 1,000
fewer than at the beginning of
Crude oil runs to refinery stills
decreased by more than 500,000 bar-
rels per day from a year ago.
Gasoline stocks almost down to
the 40,000,000 barrels set by econo-
mists as ample inventory for April
1, 1931.
A definite sentiment crystallizing
for curtailing excessive service-sta-
tion building.
These indications at least en-I
courage hope for a gradual return
to normal, in the opinion of such
oil men as E. B. Reeser, president
of the American Petroleum Insti-
tute and the Barnsdall corpora-
tion; W. G. Skelly, president of the
Skelly Oil company; Harry F. Sin-
clair, chairman of the board of the
Sinclair Consolidated Oil corpora-
tion, and Jacob France, president

South Bend, Ind., Feb. 17. It was his first public utterance since he
was reprimanded for his remarks about Il Duce. General Butler, who
spoke on crime conditions, is shown with his aide, Capt. John 'Keller.

expert doctors and in the near fu-

Throughout the day he is treated
as a sensible individual not as an
inferior person. At school he is
among his equals.
Professor Wilker stressed the im-
portance of the cooperation of the
parents with the teachers in carry-
ing out the instructions of the di-
etition and doctors. Parents, she
said, take on an added responsi-
bility when entering a child in the
Nursery school. They must bring
him to school every day and wait
until he is examined by the doctors,
they must call for him in the af-
ternoon, and they must prepare a
daily record of the food that he has
eaten. In addition to this, she add-
ed, they frequently must interview
the physicians and teachers on
problems that may arise. It is the
added responsibility that causes the
child and its parents to be as close-
ly connected as if he were home
all of the time.
"The Nursery school employs no
men teachers because at the pres-
ent time there are none trained for
the position," Professor Wilker
said. She stated that perhaps a
E man in the class room might be
beneficial to the pupils.

NEW YORK, Feb. 20.-Bones of
"the first of the plainsmen," who
had to beat his enemies to the
nearest tree instead of beating
them to the draw, will be hunted
this year in Mongolia.
The hunter will be Dr. Roy Chap-
man Andrews. He will sail about
April 1 for China to organize the
sixth expedition of the American
Museum of Natural History to ex-
plore the interior of central Asia.
If the expedition finds traces of
the prairie-rover believed to have
lived on the Mongolian plains two
or three million years ago, they will
be the oldest human relics ever dis-
Many archaeologists believe the
human race originated on the high,
level plateau of central Asia, and
spread from there throughout the
world. The man whose remains Dr.
Andrews hopes to find was the an-
cestor of the cave-dwelling Peking
man, whose million-year-old skull
was found two years ago in China.
The early plainsman, unlike Buf-
falo Bill, roamed the Mongolian
prairie on foot. Cow ponies were
unknown although an ancestor of
the, modern horse lived there.
Today the Mongolian plain is a
desert, but two million years ago it
was a grassy,,country, with clumps
of trees scattered over it and a
temperate, invigorating climate, Dr.
Andrews says.
Life was not easy for "the first of
the plainsmen." He ate roots, nuts
and grubs when he could find them,
or rabbits and other smal animals
when he could kill them with a tree
branch used as a club.'
There were no buffalo hunts or
big game round-ups for this remote
ancestor of Buffalo Bill. When any
sizeabzle beast approached he took
to the nearest tree. Wolves, rhi-
noceri and huge mastodons roamed
the country, as well as antelope
and deer.
Living the strenuous life on these
plains greatly stimulated man's
development, says Dr. Andrews.
