"Mlss Blackwell, who owns a majorlty of

"Thls opinion had f.rm?rly been held by
Mlss Blackwell herself. and waa also held
unanlmously by the board when a almtlar

"When. by reason of the heavy expenses

She then announced her Intentlon of

whether the board hnd power to terml?

"She Jueflfled thls cour.-?e on the ground
that the natlonal aBSoclatfon had already

BLOND ESQUIMAUS REAL
Has Plenty of Data to Prove
Existence of Blue Eyed,
Red Haired Tribe.
The Ilnklng of Dr. Cook'B name wlth
hls caused Dr. Vilhjalmar Stefansson. the
explorer, to announce yesterday that, if
necessary, he waa wllllng to go before a
body of sclentiflc men to settle perma
nently hls statementB regard'.ng the blond
Esquimaus he dlscovered ln Vletoria Land.
Dr. StefanBson. when Been at the Amerl?
can Museum of Natural History, Bald he
had heen informed by sclentiflc men
abroad that, in the absence of more de
tall<?d matter regarding hlB dlseovery. ef?
forts had been made, eapecially ln Den?
mark, to class hlm wlth Dr. Cook.
"There would be no object on my part
to make claims I could not substantlate."
said the explorer. "I have no lecture tour
at stake. I am busy preparing a report
to be aubmitted to the museum when it is
un behalf of the museum Dr. Federic
A. Lucas. the director, said, in view of the
criticlsm here and abroad, that Dr. Ste?
fansson had devoted hlB tlme to the an
thropologl.al work of the expedltion, and
that between May 13, 1910, and May lS.
1911. the explorer saw about a thousand
j> sons, roughly sp?aklng, and that he
took cephallc (head) measurementa of
_0K of them. Continulng. the director
"It appeared both to Mr. Stefansson
himself and to the Alapkan and Marken
zie River Esquimaus who accompanled
them on thls Journey that the people vls
ited dlffered conslderably ln phyalcal cbar
acteristlcs from any Esquimaus they had
seen previously. Perhaps the most strlk
Ing feature was that _aa_-_ were not only
more common and more abundant than
among the men of the Weatern Esquimaus
hut also of colors varylng from black to a
vtry Ilght brown tending to red.
"The blond tendencles are most proml
ncnt in Bouthwestem Vletoria Land. but
?1.. f ara met wlth at least aa far east
as a hundred miles east of th?> mouth of
the Oeppflvaaaaa River, Coronation Quif.
Although no sclentiflc census was taken
|a determlne the exact degree of blond
ness of every one of those seen, Mr. Ste?
fansson feels saf- ln saylng that more
than half of those noted have eyebrows
lighter than black and ranglng all the way
to a ver7 Ilght brown. The ter.dency to
t.londness seems less strong ln the wom?
en than In the men. A few individuals
had curly ha'.r and perhaps a dozen had
gyfli nntlceably lighter than the ordlnary
Ksqutmau brown, ranging to blue or blue
'These and other facta of a slmllar
character were observed by Mr. StefanB?
son and will. ln due course, be published
by the museum. It ls too early to settle
deflnttely on any theory exploinlng the
Dr. Stefansson sald he had Just re?
celved a letter from the Itev. C. E. Wnl
taker, who ia a Church of England mta
slonary atationed at the mouth of the
Mack<-nzle Rlv.r, saylng that, accompan?
led by ten baptlzed Esqulmaua the Rev.
Mr. I-'ry left last sprlng for the terrltory
occupl'l hy the blond Esqulmaufl.
"They should be there by now," the ex?
plorer sald. In commentlng on the letter.
Dr, St* fansson Bald Roman Catholic mlr
Blonarlea have Just about reached there
F**our hundred or more objecte collected
by the explorer were placed on exhlbltlon
