THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE DRUMMING ON A CAN, A SMALL BOY IN THE BOW SETS THE STROKE Samoan longboats are copied after the trim craft which carried landing parties from British ships to the islands, nearly a century ago. MAN'S PLACE IS IN THE KITCHEN IN THE MARQUESAS Husbands do most of the cooking. The islander at right pounds roasted breadfruit spread on the board before him with a stone pestle. He dips his left hand into a bucket for water to moisten the mixture. His helper is peeling an additional supply. Breadfruit is eaten as a pasty mass. At least thirty-two varieties of this staff of life grow on the islands.
