WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1956 THE LOGANSPORT PRESS,, LOGANSPORI, INDIANA PAGE FIVE fat Beetles And Always Be Happy WASHINGTON ffi-Quite likely the reason jou never saw an unhappy pygmy is that he eats beetles. That's the gist of a report Monday by an anthropologist-priest who recently returned from New Guinea where .-he observed the apparent workings or a "happiness vitamin." The Rev. Martin Gusinde described the source of pygmy happiness as "vitamin T" — and he told reporters they get it from eating beetles. Father Gusinde, 70, is a member of the Society of Divine Word and a professor of anthropology at the Catholic University of America in Washington. He has just returned from a four-month study of the Pygmies in a remote region.
