This issue also contains a nine-page address by the President of the Society, W.L. CLELAND; he concentrates on the Australian Aborigines, with particular reference to the recent publications of Roth, Spencer and Gillen. He concludes that the 'Australian is not degenerate but primordial ... A consequence of this is, that no longer protected by isolation, he must shortly entirely disappear from the face of the earth, for he is an anachronism and archaic'.
