CURATOR OF ETHNOLOGY DESCRIBES
COMPLEX INDIAN PIPE COMBINATION

Gimore Discusses Unique Pipe,
Used by Redskins in
Past Years.
Youth will have its cigarettes,
and age will have its pipes, but the
American Indian enjoyed a com-
'bination of both.
A species of combined cigaret
and pipe which would elicit the
admiration of a modern efficiency
engineer was commonly used by
our red ancestors of the Plains
region, according to Dr. Melvin R.
Gilmore, curator of ethnology in
the University museum of anthro-
pology. Made from a short section
of a large stiff type of prairie grass,
a tube was cut off with equal por-
tions on each side of a joint in
the grass stem. One end was used
as a mouthpiece, while the other
was packed with tobacco which
burned without consuming the

tube, making either a bowless pipe.
or a hard-shell cigaret, as the
smoker preferred.
E. M. East Will Speak
on 'Human Problems
Dr. E. M. East, professor of gene-
tics at Harvard university, will lec-
ture at 4:15-o'clock tomorrow after-
noon in Natural Science auditorium
on "Heredity and Human Prob-
lems." His talk is sponsored by the
zoology department.
Dr. East has been connected with
the Harvard faculty since 1909. He
has held also a number of govern-
ment positions: he was collabora-
tor in the Department of Agricul-
ture's tobacco investigations from
1908 to 1918, a member oof the Na-
tional Research council in 1917, and
acting chief of the statistics divi-
sion of the United States Food ad-
ministration in 1918.

:arbor inched its way along today
.n a heavy fog which followed a
January drizzle.
The passenger ship George Wash-
ington, bound in from Boston,
struck the car float in the East
river, pitching three box cars into
the water, making the float helpless
and punching a hole in the steam-
er's bow. Tugs took the float in
tow and the George Washington
crest on toward her pier.
Several other New England steam-
ers anchored just below Hell Gate
until the weather cleared.
Ferries were far behind schedule,
several ships postponed their de-
parture until the skies cleared, and
even land traffic in the metropoli-
tan area felt its way over wet pave-
ments in the murk. A street car hit
a city truck in the mist and 11
trolley passengers needed medical
attention.
Studio Art Club Class
Will Resume Meetings
Continuing its custom of alter-
nating life clases with lectures on
alternate weeks, the Studio Art club
will hold a life class Thursday eve-
ning in the drawing room of the
architectural building, Lorne E.
Marshall, '31A, president of the
society, announced Monday. A. M.
Valerio, of tlhe art faculty, will have
charge of the class.
On Wednesday, Jan. 14, Prof.
Jean Paul Slusser will deliver a talk
before the club on "Child Art in
Nuremburg." This meeting will be
held at the Women's league, in a
room to be announced later.
