Abstract
The attempt to assess the endowment of individuals among different cultures or subcultures has been an ever-present challenge to psychology and education. This particular assessment problem is not only one of considerable academic interest but also one of applied interest, since there is a growing need for reliable and valid instruments to be used for practical purposes. This present study was initiated by a research project which is studying basic problems associated with the present and anticipated needs of a changing Eskimo society. One specific problem under investigation has been to develop further means of identifying individuals capable of benefiting from specialized services.

Abstract
Screening and follow-up of 705 adult Eskimos in western Alaska disclosed only one person with clinical diabetes mellitus. Rarity of diabetes in this population is associated with a high tolerance to a glucose load.

Meningococcal Infections - epidemiology

Abstract
During the fall of 1964, six cases of meningococcal infections occurred in Barrow, Alaska. Group B meningococci were isolated from blood cultures in five of the six cases. The recent emergence of Group B strains of meningococcus as an epidemic rather than a sporadic type has been complicated by a definite shift toward sulfadiazine resistance in this group. The major problem thereby created is the lack of an effective prophylactic agent that can eliminate the organism from carriers. This development of sulfadiazine-resistant meningococci has become a nationwide problem, and it is therefore appropriate to summarize some of the clinical and epidemiologic features of the Barrow epidemic, which have been reported in detail elsewhere.
