Involved in the design and admin-
istration of naturalistic areas adja-
cent to metropolitan centers. Quot-
ing "You can respect people if you

The new genus-rizalia (palmae)

said. This man, writing under Span-

in Europe, incurred governmental
disfavor after the publication of two
of his novels. This disfavor, Profes-

If he had only lived, Professor
Bartlett lamented, Philippine liter-
ature and science would have taken
great strides and those coming after
him would have been infused with
a spirit of research and culture.

meetings were Prof. Elzada U. Clo-
ver, Mr. E. B. Mains and Miss Lois
Joer, all of the botany department
"If the average American tourist
were to understand the humor of
the Pueblo Indians-their satire,
burlesque and clowning-his taci-
turnity toward the Indians would be
dispelled," Prof. Leslie A. White of
the anthropology department pointed
out yesterday.
Revealing that government Indian
agents, tourists and priests are cle-
verly burlesqued. by the more dra-
matic Pueblos, Prof. White indicated
that practical jokes are rare "for no
closely- ;nit society like the Pueblos
could withstand the internal squab-
bling which is likely to result from
such humor." He added that except
for those copied from the white man,
puns are unheard of, because the
language of the Pueblos does not
lend itself to that type of humor.

alleged visit to the land of the dead
and his return was related by Prof.
Mischa Titiev of the anthropology
department .here.
