Manuel Elizalde dies. "Whatever controversy may surround the Tasaday, Mr Elizalde did not invent the tribe. . . The publicity given to the Tasaday has overshadowed Mr Elizalde's work protecting other minorities, equally deserving, though less newsy" At the time of his death Elizalde was financing education of the Tasaday as well as other minority peoples.
