Anthropologist's Book Reveals
Intellect Of A meirican Indians



The American Indians - styled
"the white man's burden" by the
white conquerors of the North Ameni-
,an continent to justify their theft
f the Indian lands were really no
burden at all, a book written by W.
Vernon Kinietz of the University Mu-
seum of Anthropology reveals.
The intelligence of the American
Indians was the equal of those who
-onquered them, evidence compiled
in the book just published by the
University of Michigan Press proves.
A letter written in 1645 by Lale-
mant, a Jesuit missionary who;
worked among the Hurons, is quoted
in the book, entitled, "The Indiansj
of the Western Great Lakes" as fol-
"Iscan say in truth that, as regards,
ntelligence, they are in no ways in-
ferior to Europeans and to those who
dwell in France. I would never have
believed that without instruction, na-
ture could have supplied a most ready
and vigorous eloquence, which I have
admired in many Hurons; or more
clear-sightedness in affairs, or a
more discreet management in things
to which they were accustomed.
"In truth, their customs are bar-
barous in a thousand matters; but
after all, in those practices which
among them are regarded as evil acts
and are condemned by the public,
we find without comparison much less
disorder than there is in France,
though here the mere shame of hav-
ing committeed the crime is the of-
fender's punishment."

Saunders MacLane
Will Lecture Here
Speaking on the general subject
"The Extension of Groups and Their
Applications," Professor Saunders
MacLane of Harvard University will
deliver the six Alexander Ziwet Lec-
tures in Mathematics beginning
April 21 and extending for a period
of two weeks.
The first of the six lectures,-to be
given at 4 p.m., April 21, in Room
3011 Angell Hall on the topic "Group
Extensions and Factor Sets."
Prof. MacLane is internationally
known for his work in the field of
Mathematics, and is at the present
time a member of the Department of,
Mathematics at Harvard University.

,wout, the Otcawa who dwelt in tre
Mackinac region about 1695, also is
quoted in Kinietz's volume as fol-


"We may say without flattery that
all Indians are naturally intelligent;
but, as their intellect is not cultivat-
ed, and they act only on their own
inclinations in everything, their
knowledge is entirely restricted to
what takes place in their own village
or among their nearest neighbors; so
that they look upon what Europeans
tell them as. so many fancies with
which the imagination delights to
feed and entertain itself. God has
,alsb given them the gifts of a very
good memory."

they found in an exhibit above canvas by Artist Fred Conway who says it's his conception of "Pep-

"Pepper" is that swirl of dust making a circuit of the bases and clouding up the home plate.

Synthetic Resin Adhesive
Is Key To Construction
Of Plywood Craft
The recent acceptance of, the first
laminated wood training plane by the
Civil Aeronautics Administration may
be 'the preview of great use of this
form of construction in the future.
especially in view of the defense pro-
gram, Louis A. Patronsky. assistant in
wood technology in the School of For-
estry and Conservation, asserted in
an interview yesterday.
Constructed without use of defense
metals, the new ship, a low-wing
monoplane, was made with virtual
elimination of the mach'ne tools so
vital to most designs.
Tests indicate that the trainer is
strcnger than metal ships on the
basis of strength-weight ratios with
more efficient performance and ease
of maneuverability, according to the
manufacturer, the Timm Aircraft
Corporation of California.
Of aid to national defense is the
plane's additional advantage of not
requiring the usual skilled labor. In-
stead, most of the men can be recruit-
ed from cabinetmakers and wood-
workers easily trained for the job.
"The success of this design," Pa-
tronsky maintains, "was largely made
possible by the development of new
synthetic resin adhesives. These new
resins, easily obtained in great quan-
tities from natural products, have
been experimentally shown to be very
satisfactory for use in both fuselages
and wings. They protect the wood
from fungus attacks, reducing con-
traction and expansion due to mois-
ture changes, thus making for great-
er reliability.
"Previous to the application of
these resins," Patronsky explained,
"adoption of laminated wood aircraft
was hindered by the inadequacy of
other glue materials which did not
prevent the wood from separating, ex-
panding or contracting over a period
of time under conditions of moisture.'
