Photographers include Muybridge, Cantwell, T. Sullivan, and W. One of the most important and exhaustive treatments of the American Indian in the 19th century. As American Indians had not been treated in detail in previous censuses, it was decided under the administration of Superintendent Robert Porter to prepare this mammoth undertaking, which pays scrupulous, detailed attention to the present state of the American Indian of the times.
Included are discussions of Indian populations by state, status reports concerning life on the reservations, disbursement of populations on and off reservations, progress in schooling and employment, etc. Virtually every aspect of the topic is at least considered in this work, if not investigated in depth. The highly prized lithograph color plates of Indian life by noted artists are the best such works undertaken in a government publication, and are of exceptional quality.

In and around his neighborhood that year, he took part in marches and sit-ins, but by , as his anger toward the government grew, he secretly set off a series of bombs across Manhattan. To many in the counterculture underground, he was their equivalent of a masked avenger.
There was no way some doped-up college kid was making them. You can be all those things and still not want to blow up buildings. Yet in the flashpoint of just four months, Sam Melville and a small group of followers took the American radical left on a hard turn into armed struggle. Melville was one of the first to turn to this kind of violence, but the country would soon witness the kidnapping of Patty Hearst by the Symbionese Liberation Army, the bombings of the Pentagon and NYPD headquarters by the Weather Underground, and more.
What else would make a person act that way other than knowing they damaged their family? The one thing nobody can debate is the haphazard manner in which Sam Melville went about bombing Marine Midland. Though his intention was to destroy property and not people, he did not take into account the presence of an evening staff in the building when he set the device for a 10 p.
When more than a dozen employees were taken to the hospital — all with minor injuries — it forced him to rethink his future plans of attack. Army and Selective Services inside. The device went off at 2 a. There were no injuries. Melville and his cell soon learned that damaging federal property could elicit a furious response. The next day, the FBI went to an apartment Melville had moved out of months earlier, and later they tracked him down at the apartment on East 4th Street where he and Alpert were living.
He told them his name was David McCurdy — the pseudonym he had used to rent a nearby apartment where he had set up an explosives workshop — and denied knowing who Sam Melville was. Unfazed by this close call, the collective went to work plotting their most ambitious statement on American tyranny yet: a trio of simultaneous bomb blasts across the city on Veterans Day. Meanwhile, Melville opted for his version of laying low: skipping town and going on a bombing spree of U.
Army facilities across the Midwest. Melville also participated in a guerilla warfare workshop in North Dakota, hosted by the black nationalist H. Rap Brown. From the inside, black people have been fighting a revolution for years. And finally, white Americans too are striking blows for liberation. Another blast was planned to follow at the Lexington Armory on 26th Street, with Melville delivering the bomb himself with help from George Demmerle, a newer member Melville had befriended on the Lower East Side.
Demmerle, an overly rambunctious radical who not only was a member of the Crazies but also held rank as the only Caucasian member of the Black Panthers, greatly impressed Melville.

Descriptions of other families of commercial importance are being prepared with a view to the publication of a Forester's Manual of Non-Dipterocarp Families.
Numerous articles have been published in the Malayan Forester during the last 25 years, including a recent one introducing a standardized system of nomenclature for bole And bark characters, while a form of field collecting label has been produced, with Malay vernacular equivalents, carefully planned to elicit the maximum of information from collectors regarding field characters. The forest botanist has also done a great deal of ecological work, but this is discussed in the next section.
The authorized staff is one forest botanist, one assistant forest botanist, two research assistants and three plant collectors. Future needs. The needs are: 1. The authorized staff is sufficient provided that the posts are kept filled. Ecology and soil science Outline of program. Ecology and soil science are considered together because soil science is most unlikely to become a separate branch of forest research in Malaya. It will be a most important tool for the ecologist and silviculturist, but fundamental research on soils will continue to be more in the province of the Department of Agriculture.
The work of the ecologist should be designed to assist the silviculturist in the choice of forest strata and of species. To do this he must: a study the composition and structure of natural forest and define vegetation types; b study succession after the original vegetation has been removed or modified; c study and define sites in terms of soil and other environmental factors which affect forest growth potential, so that they may be recognized at various stages of vegetational succession; d study the adaptability of species to various site conditions; e study which species and methods may best be used to accelerate the restoration of degraded land to productive forest.
The Malayan climate is so favorable to forest growth that almost any soil may, given time, support a luxuriant vegetation, and the general structure of virgin forest throughout the country is remarkably similar. Within this framework, however, species are so numerous and variations so kaleidoscopic that chance differences between one square chain and the next, or one acre and the next, tend to obscure the fundamental site differences. A provisional classification of Malayan soils has been made by the soils chemist of the Rubber Research Institute and this classification has been tabulated and annotated by the silviculturist as an aid to their recognition in the forest.
Nevertheless, progress in the recognition of sites and detailed vegetation types has been disappointing. The main vegetation types, however, have been described in Malayan Forest Record No. The structure and composition of virgin forest, and its growth, in-growth and mortality, are being studied in 2-hectare sample plots. In the absence of a full time ecologist, forest ecological work has hitherto been done by the forest botanist; but recently an ecologist has been appointed under the Commonwealth Development and Welfare Scheme with the special task of evolving methods of reclamation of degraded soils.
Intensive work is required on the objectives outlined above, especially on the recognition of vegetation types and their correlation with soils. The forest botanist in the past could never spare sufficient time for this and a recent change of staff has made the position worse. The newly appointed ecologist is working full time on the restoration of degraded land. The need, therefore, is for a new permanent appointment of a forest ecologist. Silviculture Outline of program. Silviculture is very closely related to ecology on the one hand and to forest mensuration on the other.
Working together, these three branches must provide the answer to the basic problem stated above, by determining whether silviculture may: 1. Before much progress can be made, the silviculturist must become familiar with his treatment techniques and the habits of living plants. The more important projects may therefore be out. Malaya has led the world in many aspects of tropical rain forest silviculture, and particularly in the conversion of virgin jungle to more or less even-aged stands of far greater potential value.
Before the war, a technique had been developed and was being applied on an increasing commercial scale, whereby the useless or less valuable trees were removed by poison-girdling, by sale as firewood, or latterly by sale as timber, while a new crop was raised under the shelter of the remaining valuable trees until the latter were harvested as a " final felling ". Numerous articles in' the Malayan Forester and the first chapter of the Manual of Silviculture trace the development of the system.
Economic considerations, including such factors as the increasing use of mechanized methods in extraction techniques and the replacement of the hand-sawyer by sawmills, have since compelled the adoption of the simpler system referred to above and described in detail in a paper entitled The Silviculture of Lowland Dipterocarp Forest submitted to the Commonwealth Forestry Conference.
Hence projects h , i and j are new problems, and little progress on them has been made to date. Progress on the other projects may he summarized as follows: a The silviculturist has spent much time during the last few years on the compilation of all available information regarding the inland low land forests. Milliacre hectare surveys of seedling regeneration are done in many cases before exploitation and results are being collected for compilation.
There is only one permanent plot in inland forest for the study of mortality and recruitment in transects of milliacre hectare quadrats. Many other species which are now accepted, as timber have not yet been sufficiently studied. A safer arboricide would, however, avoid much anxiety and the necessarily very stringent precautions.
Experiments with other arboricides have been disappointing, but trials of the more promising T are now being made on trees, climbers and other weeds. Small-scale trials of exotics have been actively pursued during recent years, most indigenous species of value having been found difficult and expensive to establish on poor soils or in exposed conditions.
Further experiments in planting open or degraded areas have been entrusted to the ecologist appointed under the Commonwealth Development Scheme. The silviculturist is assisted by a plantations officer and field staff in charge of the experimental plantations; and by a mobile research team of four, who can assist with experimental work in any part of the country and who also help with records and mensuration work.
Continued work is necessary in all the basic projects a to f , but more particularly in the study of the silvicultural characteristics of the lesser known species and the finding of a safe and economic arboricide. Projects h to j need planning from the start. No details are given here because the technique of measuring and comparing the effect of different treatments on such mixed rain forest stands has not yet been worked out.
The problems will be discussed under the heading " mensuration " in the next section. The silviculturist holds a key position in research but, in recent years, working-single handed, he has tended to be bogged down by routine work and the necessity for consolidating and making available past experience. With so much new work to be done, a fully-qualified assistant silviculturist is now a necessity. Forest mensuration Outline of program. As stated above, the forest mensuration program is closely allied to the silvicultural programme. The main mensuration projects are therefore as follows: 1.
The Mensuration Branch will also assist the Silvicultural Branch in the execution of these designs and will analyze the data collected. In all the above studies, very close liaison with the Silvicultural Branch will be maintained. The first sample plots were laid out in , but the present series was not started until Since , sample plots have been laid out. Of this number, 34 contain no increment data and all records of 59 were destroyed during the war.
The remainder contain the annual measurements and other observations of approximately 25, trees of different species, although the majority of measurements have been made on the relatively few chief commercial species under varying conditions and treatments. These measurements have been made over varying lengths of time up to 39 years. The first compilation of all inland forest sample plot data was made in and published as M. A second compilation had just been completed in when the invasion of Malaya took place.
