All Busama men want a family, and those without children say continually how sorry they are. At is usual among primitive peoples, the natives do not know that males may be sterile, and a childless man invariably blames his wife. Stronger measures are as a rule required only when a fresh pregnancy has occurred. Births are supposed to be properly spaced, and people condemn as heartless women who conceive too early. The natives often refer to the place of food in establishing these early kinship ties. Early childhood, nevertheless, is a time of almost uninterrupted enjoyment. Busama is a paradise for the young. The most striking feature of the various activities of the children is the absence of any form of competition. These natives have not a single game for young or old in which an individual or a side can be declared the winner.
