Abstract
The intestinal infections are an attractive starting place in arctic epidemiology because the mass behavior of these diseases has been well worked out through long study in temperate and tropical regions. Also, the required bacteriological procedures are relatively simple, a consideration of moment in the arctic where field conditions are as difficult as they are. Alaska was chosen as the first study area. As a cultural and administrative part of the United States, conditions were good for communication and cooperation.The primary purpose was to determine under arctic conditions the mode of transmission of acute infectious diarrhea of man, and to learn something of prevalence and seasonal incidence. Also, intestinal parasites of dog and man were surveyed in two villages, and the ecology of fish tapeworm was examined in one area.

Abstract
A study compared postpartum conception, menstruation and ovulation o f 299 Alaskan Eskimo female noncontraceptive users of which 242 nursed t heir infants and 57 did not with a control group of 115 women who were newly married or who had discontinued contraceptive use. 2 factors were found to differentiate nursing from nonnursing women in relation to postpartum conception as follows: the annovulatory period of postpartum amenorrhea is longer for nursing than for nonnursing women and the number of annovulatory cycles after menstruation recurs is greater for the former than for the latter. A comparison of pregnancy probability r ates for controls with those nursing and nonnursing women showed that the control had a significantly higher probability rate of pregnancy than did those in the adjusted groups for the first 6 months with the nursers and for months 2 through 6 for the nonnursers. Conception rates were under 10% in women breast-feeding for at least 9 months whereas about 75% of the nonnursing women were pregnant within a similar period of time. Life-table analyses of pregnancy probability rates indicated that on the average the anovulatory period post amenorrhea was 3 months for nonnursing and 4 months for nursing women. The consistency of these findings with those reported for Indian women suggest that the physiologic effect of nursing on conception rates is independent of climate.

Abstract
This study is concerned with the incidence, clinical observations, and gross anatomic and histologic findings of an anomaly of which American dentists are relatively unaware, namely an occlusal tubercle that often appears on Mongoloid premolars. Because of the Chinese, Japanese, American Indian, and Eskimo patients that we may treat, it is important to have a knowledge of this anomaly and the pathologic conditions with which it can be associated.
