  Indians built the First Apartment House Modern people have built magnificent apartment houses in their cities. The credit for developing the first apartment houses in this country must go to the Indians. The Iroquois of the Northwest used one type of apartment house. The  building was divided into rows of separated rooms and one family lived in each room. It was the Pueblos in the Southwest who developed large apartment buildings which in their design were very much like those we see in our cities today. The earliest apartment was built in valleys. Later, the Pueblos built their apartments in other valleys. Regardless of where each building was placed, it was planned to houses several families. Gradually the little villages of Pueblos, whether in valleys or on cliffs, began to disappear. It was during this period that these remarkable Indians built their highest apartment houses. Many of the apartment houses of this period had from 20 to 1,000 rooms. The materials used in making these houses were stones struck together with adobe mud. Frequently they were plastered and the rooms were whitewashed.  Not all of the rooms in these big apartment houses were used as homes for people. The upper rooms were used for living, sleeping, corn drying and corn grinding. Cooking was done outdoors on the roofs or in spaces between blocks of rooms. The present-day Pueblo Indians live to New Mexico for the most part, although there are a few tribes in Arizona. Many are farmers who work industriously in their fields. Other devote their time to making beautiful pottery. Still others weave colorful blankets and make attractive baskets and silver jewelry. The modern Pueblo Indians live in picturesque adobe homes. They wear the same kind of clothes as people who live in other parts of the United States. Many of them have automobiles, radios, and television sets. There are two ways in which mo st of the Pueblos haven’t changed . They still retain their social system of living in communities. They also still believe firmly in their native religion, which has been modifgied only in regard to a few details throughout their long history.  The Frisbee Fling 1.   Any given moment of the day or night, there are Frisbees in flight. Mainly a Frisbee is a thing to be played with as the player pleases. 2.   The Frisbee reportedly got its first start at Yale after World War II. 3.   Morrison came up with the idea of making a disc of plastic instead of tin. 4.   The Frisbee eventually earned Morison royalties of close to a million dollars. 5.   For many, the fun was just in throwing and catching the thing, watching it fly free, but some people began developing different techniques. 6.   Although Frisbee has no official rules making committee; there is an International Frisbee Association. The IFA supported by Wham-O.  How moths are coping with pollution 1.   There are certain moths whose color serves to protect them, which are changing their color to match the polluted backgrounds on which they rest. These moths usually rest on tree trunks that in their srcinal state have a  pale gray or green appearance because of lichens that grow on them. Accordingly, during recent years large numbers of moths have become dark or black in color instead of pale green. 2.   The increase in dark moths is attributed to air pollution. Now the dark colored moth is almost invisible as he rests on a dark colored moths are increasing in polluted areas, and light colored moths are decreasing. As a result it is possible in the future that, in polluted areas, all moths will be dark colored  Bicycling The Immense Growth of Cycling In the past few years, cycling has grown at an amazing rate in the United States. Many people are tired of being bored, fat, and confined by their own world. They want to experience the greater world around them. Limitations of Cycling Close to Home Many people have discovered the joys of cycling on trips close to home, daily traveling, or weekend trips using both an automobile and a bicycle. These are all satisfying, and racing is available for those who want even more difficult challenges. Many other people, however, desire even longer bike trips in order to see more of the country. Bicycle Touring- A European Tradition The tradition of bicycle touring has long been established in Europe, and interest it is growing in North America. Bicycle touring in Europe is based on a network of hostels and others inexpensive accommodations where cyclists can spend the night, pedaling from one to another during the day. This allows the tourists to travel without having to carry a lot of equipment. Bicycle Camping More Popular in the United States Bicycle camping is more popular in the United States and Canada, simply because there is so much open country to be explored. In the West, one can pedal all day without seeing any large towns, simply because so many of the interesting regions of the West are sparsely populated. Bicycle campers can ride all day, either  pedaling hard and covering over one hundred miles (160 kilometers), or going more slowly and doings lots of sightseeing. Bicycle Camping-Midway between Backpacking and Car Camping Bicycle camping has its own special niche in the World of camping and wilderness travel. It stands midway between backpacking and car camping. Camping bicyclist provide their own motive power, as do backpackers, canoeists, touring skiers, and mountain. They must keep their equipment light, simple, and compact.
