In such a position we found our selves at Yirrkala, when Mr Chaseling was suddenly stricken down with an acute illness. Some time before our station wireless set was put out of action when struck by lightning in a severe storm.

The otler 5 per cent. do know, but have excellent reasons for not telling us. Th1e simple fact is that a new and vastly improved social system has been established on one sixth of the earth's surface, and those all-powerful few who do themselves so well out of our own system are using every means at their disposal to con vince us that the new one is a tyranny.
