The boomerang is a fine ex ample of this. It is one of th oldest weapons used by primitiv men and one of the most re markable. Although It's hardly more than a curved club, the way it per forms when thrown into the ai has puzzled science for many years. The boomerang is used b; savage tribes in Australia, Africa southern India, and by the Hop Indians of Arizona. Isn't it amazing that it was developed in so many different parts of the world? There are two kinds of boom erangs: the return and the nonre- turn. The nonreturn boomerang is the one that really matters t< the natives. It is the heavier, anc nearly straight, and as a weapon in hunting or in war it is deadly! Natives can throw it at a smal animal and almost cut it in two! To us, the return boomerang is better known and probably more interesting. But the Australian natives, who,are the greatest experts with it, think of it pnly as •toy, not as a serious weapon. The return boomerang is made of hard wood and is curved at an angle of between 00 degrees and W degrees. One side is flat and the other is rounded, The arms are very slightly twist' ed in opposite directions, so that they are aboul !i degrees off « plane drawn through the center. What makes the boomerang ravel in a circle and return? Two things: tjje pressure o( the ajr on the bulge of the rounded side, egether with the (wist. The iushmen of Australia can a boomerang curve in an ama? ing manner. They can throw so that it will travel straight fo 30 yards, describe a circle yards in diameter, and then re turn to the thrower. They ca make it hit the ground, circle i the air, and return. Some people enjoy makin; boomerangs and learning how t throw them. It takes a great dea of practice to use one correctly But there have been cases whei people were able to make boomerang travel as far as 4G feet before returning!
