Scientists Studying Sheep To Evaluate Human Race CLEVELAND, Sept. 13.—Report ing that sheep stick together for mutual protection and that leader ship among them seldom develops from a show of vorce and violence, an Indiana zoologist posed the questio* today whether mankind could take a tip from the farm in solving its social problems. Dr. J. P. Scott of Wabash college told the American Association for the Advancement of Science in a prepared paper that his investiga tions of social life down on 1 h e farm had shown that leadership among sheep goes to the kindly— those who have rewarded the oth er members of the flock. The ele ment of reward is a vital force in their social organization. Leadership in the flock he watch ed, Scott reported, went to an el derly ewe which had raised and j fondly cared for a large family— rather than to some truculent rums which were gadding about looking for a scrap. It would be tempting to apply, these results to human beings, Dr Scott said, but he declared the evidence is legitimate only insofar as fundamental likenesses can be established between the behavior of sheep and man. At any rate, he saio, the sheep analysis “suggests a general meth od of approach to the solution of, certain human problems of leader ship.” "The problem of war which now besets us,” he continued, “are a reflection of the small extent to which social forces have corse un der scientific control. “The zoologist can help by pro-| viding the basis for an experiment-1 al science of bio - sociology, and the . .study of social organiza tion of sheep is intended as s-ch a contribution.” Another Wabash zoologist, asso ciate professor Howard H. Vogel, Jr., reported on social doings in the hen - coop, without making any projections into the field of human relations. Vogel’s poultry apparently raised more ructions than Scott’s sheep, and the ladies of the group were far less polite. Describing how incubated chicks two to seven weeks old, were intio duced in pairs to a flock of chick ens and pigeons kept in a small greenhouse, the professor said "the older hens* pecked each pair of chicks vigorously soon after their introduction.” This resulted, he said, in the newcomers pairing off by them selves in separate social groups, and keeping a good distance from dominant hens. Even a rooster, upon entering the greenhouse, had to watch him self until he found out where he stood with his hostesses. When first introduced, said Vo gel, the rooster was "submissive as a chick to adult hens.” -V Carolina Beach Board Delays Contract Award -' No contract was awarded Tues day night by the Town of Caro-' lina Beach for the purchase of a new 750 - gallon fire engine, Citv Clerk Fennell announced yester day.
