More on the Kadero Neolithic Human Remains
I agree with Neumann's premise that cultural practices appear to have, or at one time had, an adaptive virtue, and his report that the Navajo feed salt to a newborn "to it make grow rapidly and attain good height," although it is doubtful the Navajo could give a biological explanation in this way.

Geological Antiquity of Rhodesian Man
Recent evidence is pointed out that the Broken Hill and Saldanha specimens are in fact far older than previously thought and can be assigned to any modern race.

Plycosaurian evolution is the focus, since the technique is meant to be the tool, and a few comments designed to make this work fully accessible to readers unfamiliar with factor analysis are in order.

It is demonstrated here that if the full analyses (generalized distances) are taken into account, then almost exactly opposite conclusions obtain.
Allometry Correction in Taximetrics
The present paper discusses the analysis of metric characters by Q-mode correlation coefficients and the effect of allometric distortion in the data, and the need and practicality of correcting for it, are discussed.
Further evidence concerning speech in Neandertal man
It was found that cranial base morphology was not substantially different in the Neandertals from modem and Mesolithic groups, and there is no anatomic basis for suggesting an intermediate articulatory ability for the Rhodesian specimen.
The use of principal components analysis in physical anthropology
A principal components analysis of eighty fossil and modern hominid skulls employing a total of 25 measurements is presented. The results are discussed briefly, but the central concern of this paper
Concordance of collagen-based radiocarbon and aspartic-acid racemization ages.
Results provide evidence that the aspartic-acid racemization reaction is an important chronological tool for dating bones either too old or too small for radiocarbon dating.
Multivariate analysis of early hominid pelvic bones.
Multivariate analyses of the acetabular and iliac parts of fossil hominid and extant hominoid pelvic bones show that (1) the best preserved fossil from Swartkrans (SK 3155) is more similar to the
