South American expedition left hem
for the Amazon. The yacht will voy
age by way of Porto Itlco, Barbados
and Trinidad to Para, at tho mouth
of the Amazon, and will then steam
up the great river into one of Its up
per tributaries, proceeding up tho un
charted stream until tho shallows
check her. Sho will then bo moored
and serve as headquarters for the ex
ploring parties, which will use tho gas
olino launch and canoes with which
she Is equipped In order to reach thoso
points on the river which are not
navigable by tho yacht herself. When
the observations shall havo beon com
pleted 'in any given locality tho collec

which will then pass on to tho next
tributary to bo explored. Para or
Manaos will servo as a base of sup

Amazon basin to which the expedition
directs Its attention for tho tlmo being
Tho main purpose of tho expedition
Is to study tho Indian tribes of tho
Amazon valley, which havo not been
studied in detail, and to collect for
tho university museum specimens of
their arts, industries, customs and
modes of life. Their songs will bo re
corded on tho phonograph, and their
dances and various activities will be
reproduced by tho moving-picture cam
era. Systematic studies will be made
of tho natlvo languages, religious and
social systems and decorative art. In
brief, tho expedition seeks to furnish
as completo a record as modern meth
ods can afford of tho natlvo Ilfo of tho
Amazon valley and to Illustrate those
studies by adequate collections assem
bled In tho university museum.
Tho remoteness and seclusion of
many of tho tribes which will bo
studied is indicated by tho fact that
such a condition as that reported on
tbo Putamay river can exist In the
face of modern civilization and with
out Interference from any local gov
ernment. While tho study of native llfo forms
the main object of the expedition, oth
er aspects of exploration will not be
neglected. A modlcal investigator will
accompany tho party for tho purpose
of studying beriberi nnd other fatal
diseases peculiar to tho Amazon re
gion, and tho flora and fauna of the
country will receive duo attention.
Tbo man selected by tho museum to
have chargo of tho expedition is Al
