National Geographic : 1937 Dec
780 THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE PUPILS OF FIVE NATIONALITIES MASTER MORE THAN THE THREE R'S Manual training for boys and domestic science for girls are part of the program from the first grade up, at Ushuaia. School ends after the sixth grade, and students must go to Buenos Aires if they wish to continue their work. Argentines, Spaniards, Chileans, Yugoslavs, and Italians make up the enrollment of 185 youngsters here taught by eight masters and two women. MUSIC IN THE BLACK BOX? JUST ANOTHER WHITE MAN'S TRICK Grown-ups in this Yahgan home on Navarino Island listened suspiciously; children were more impressed by trinkets. "How many are we ?" inquire the posters announcing the taking of a national census. They form part of the papering on the wall. The question is apt for the Yahgans, who seem doomed to extinction (page 773).
