MENYAMAYA. New Guinea-
We slipped in cross-wind over the
sharp creases of folded, grassy
hills and rolled up to the bleakest
administrative district in this rug
ged vast island. Here is the home
of the Kukukuku, the toughest
piece of furniture of New Guinea,
There are many Kuks wno have
never seen a white man, who still
work with stone implements and
beat each other cheerfully to death
with vicious stone-headed clubs.
The outstanding aspect of the
Kuk is the way he kills. He seldom
kills from violent emotion. He kills
casually, almost absentmindedly,
and for no particular reason save
momentary irritation or boredom.
The KukukUku is' a ltttro man;
averaging five feet in height. He
is a miserably impoverignea na
tive, living hieh on the bleak ridges
of high, windy mountains, moving
from place to place aimlessly, liv living

as a staple, and occasionally kill killing

The Chimbus wear golden wigs
and landscape their communities
with flamboyant blossoms.
The Kuk cuts his hair short,
wears a grass breechcloth, like a
Scot's sporran, and nothing else.
His singing is primitive, his dances
skimpy, his ancestor-worship paid
clean to the bone. He is only a
ceremonial cannibal, not a dietary
one which is to say he might
chop a ham off a fallen foe, but
he wouldn't kill him just to eat

but only war leaders. The princi principal
