Some Altitude Operational Characteristics of a Prototype Iroquois Turbojet Engine, COORD. NO. AF-P-6

Description: The evaluation of the altitude operational characteristics was part of the over-all investigation of the early developmental Iroquois engine. Engine steady-state windmilling characteristics were evaluated over a range of flight Mach numbers from 0.48 to 1.72 at altitudes of 35,000 and 50,000 feet. Engine altitude ignition limits were obtained over a range of flight Mach numbers from 0.5 to 1.5 with the standard engine ignition system and also with an oxygen boost system. A short investigation of high-speed altitude reignition following combustor blowout was conducted.

The Evolution of the Treatment of Captives by the Indians of the Northeastern Woodlands from Earliest European Contact Through the War of 1812

Description: When the first Europeans set foot on the North American continent, they clashed, both physically and culturally, with the native inhabitants. The Indian practice of taking, adopting, and sometimes torturing captives offended the Europeans more than any other practice. The treatment afforded to captives varied from tribe to tribe and tended to change as the Indians adapted to the new environment and adjusted to the increased pressure thrust upon them by the advancing whites. The primary sources used were Indian captivity narratives. The 111-volume "Garland Library of North American Indian Captivities" has made many of the better known narratives more readily available.
