Australian Natives ? _^ ? Not of Inferior Intelligence AN EXPERT'S FINDINGS In a little room at Adelaide Univer sity aii Adelaide anthropologist is working on a book that will expel for all time the myth that the Australian aboriginal is a being of inferior intelli gi_-U'-e. providing a sort of link with the JStone Age. The book will be titled 'The Central Australian Native Chants,'* Ltit the j half-finished manuscript is a fascinat- ! ing mixture of technicalities about t Language, native rites, customs, beliefs ! and philosophies, as well as iliti ex quisite poetry of the translated chants, j It reveals that Australia's aborigines have produced some of the most exquisite primitive verse ever discover ed, and that their language is' amaz ingly rich. These facts, which may surprise people who regard the Australian native as little more than sub-normal, have been discovered by Mr. T. G. EL J Strehlovv.

Geraldton Repertory Another Play Reading A POOR ATTENDANCE (Contributed) A reading of '?Belinda,'' a three-act play by A. A. Milne, was a feature of the monthly social held by the Gerald ton Repertory Club on Wednesday night last in the Geraldton Town Hall. The play was produced by Mrs. ] McAvoy and despite various difficulties in casting it, went over very well. The arranging of the various scenes was especially commendable. The main part, that of Belinda Tre uiayne, was played by Miss Betty Webb, and those who have seen this versatile player in more serious roles, were quick to appreciate her skiii iu portraying this most light and airy character of A. A. Milne's creation. She was vivacious, coy and laughable as the situation demanded and was careful not to overplay the part- She was ably supported by Miss Zelda Rundle as Betty the maid, and Miss Clarice Andrews as Delia, the daugh ter, both of whom we look forward to seeing again in acted parts, as distinct from play-readings.
