The mission operated 21 posts and out-stalioiis at plantations along the eastern coixst of Papua and had extensive holdings of coconut and rubber trees. The mission has its own modern sawmill and farm. Sawmill workers arc predominantly commuters; however, instead of traveling to work cti busses, trains and street cars, the Papuans, who usually live in villages on lh« larger Islands a few miles away, paddle their outrigger canoes to sea, freciucntly battling rough seas.

PACIFIC IIZHT.CIffT Adventurous Seattle Youth Now On Last Lap Of 4f Vear Journey VAf PAHAIfiO, Chile (U.P.)—Wil- llum C. Weld. 27-year-old Seattle, Wash., youth, with more than a dash ef adventure in his make-up, left this .seaport recently on the last lap of Ills roimd-the-I'aclfic cruise- aboard his small sailboat "Pagan," With Seattle as his destination, he expects to complete Ihc trip iiv IhiiT months and to enlist in one uf tiie armed services of the United Susies. Weld has been sailing the P- clfic in his 25-afool vessel by himself for the past four and one-half years. In peacetime and in war, he has gone from Seattle to Alaska, llu'iicc lo numerous small Islands in (lit' Southwest Pacific and lo Australia. In II); latter part of ID12, one y<;ir afle* the war had broken out in Ihc Pacific, he calmly sel fail from Tahiti for Uie west coast of Chile. A taciturn, hcrmitlike person, Ills only comment on the dangers lie met was that Ills life was endangered several times during the crossing from Tahiti to Valparaiso by "sharks and whales." lie said he .saw no evidence on ills voyage ol Uie tremendous conflict going on between the United Nations and Japan. Weld arrived here last Fob. 21 and announced that he would remain in Valparaiso for a fortnight lo make minor repairs on the "Pa- gun. " However, this fortnight stretched into three months, principally because Weld is in no hurry lo do 'anything and because he liked Valparaiso very much. When the solitary navigator, as lie is now known in' Chile, left Tahiti he intended to head for California. But; off tiie Chilean coast tie encountered a storm which forced him to change his course Using a map that had been printed in an American magazine as hi; only guide, lie made his way to Valparaiso. When Weld left here he announced thai ho expected to makt the voyage to Seattle in three laps —stopping first at Calao. Peru, and ;hen at some point on the California coast before arriving at Seattle.

As an example, lie pointed out;j that parents might tell u girl they I- didn't want her to go to certain ' places—bul tor all they know the warning may go unheeded.
