Lewis said the "natives" along the way have been friendly except for two "bureaucrats." "We ran into a couple of bureaucrats in a couple of places who have made a fuss about our camping. And all we did in a case like that : was to camp elsewhere. But aside from those ; two instances, there has been extraordinary friendliness. Our faith in human nature has real- ly been restored." 1 The voyagers planned to camp out Wednesday by Chicago's Adler Planetarium on Lake 'Michigan before resuming their trip.

The group, composed of 16 recent high school students, five Elgin area teachers, a playwright and a Franciscan priest, left last August for Canada to begin their 3,300-mile trip south in six birchbark canoes. Tuesday they returned home for the first time for brief reunions with their families and several public appearances. Expedition leader Ken Lewis, 35, the playwright, said their medical adviser is not quite sure why some have gained and others have lost weight but he has some ideas. DON'T WAIT!
