Subject: more magic numbers

	It seems H. sapiens may have multiple magic numbers.  We have
the 7+-2, Sale proposed about 7000 in Human Scale and I recall having
read an article suggesting another in the 125-175 range.  Is anyone
aware of other proposals for optimal size ranges for human groups?

COON@IPFWCVAX.BITNET          freedom too many,
COON@CVAX.IPFW.INDIANA.EDU    than to have one
				              too few."

Politically incorrect and proud of it.
