    Portrait of the artist as a young chimp
    (Lambda Alpha Anthropology Honors Society at Wichita State University, 1975) Fraikor, Arlene L.
    Art, like morality, consists of drawing the line somewhere. But when is a line or a group of lines elevated to the realm of art? When is a person who draws these lines called an artist? Does only man have art, or, is art possible among other animals? Is there a basic aesthetic sense which permeates all life? This paper will discuss these questions while exploring the concept of the biology of art.

    The role and status of women in Islam
    (Lambda Alpha Anthropology Honors Society at Wichita State University, 1975) Rogers, Joanne
    A consideration of the role and status of women in the religion of Islam is a complex undertaking as Islam encompasses many diverse cultures and each of these cultures has had a unique cultural response to the religion. Thus, the scope of the topic necessitates a very generalized treatment of the subject matter here. For the sake of cohesiveness, emphasis has been placed upon similarities rather than diversities in the woman's role in societies under Islamic influence. This paper is presented in three parts: I. Islamic history and the role of the women before Islam and at the inception of Islam. Concentration in this section rests in the social system. II. Material from interviews with three Persian women. III. Conclusion
