+ Brandishing Sticks Instead of Spears, the Belgian Congo's Tall Watusi Warriors Stage the Courting Dance ofthe Crowned Crane This command performance for the visiting safari was given at Kisenyi. Busy with their crops, the Watusi consented toleave their fields only on orders from the chief (lower right, in European clothes). Here they dance in fiber-plume headpieces and ankle bells. A tribal "primeminister" inpolka-dot robe leads the performance. Minstrels clad in red await their cue in background. 4 Newly risen in remote areas, Uganda's small clinics and dispensaries supplement a 1,000-bed hospital in Kampala.This hospital stands near Kabale.
