-This is fty-public holidays are so popular with bUshwalkers (the country will really"​ go to the pack if any blishies eirer get into parliament).

-If youare in th1s6ategory,​ and haven'​t any ideas of your who you'll find plenty of interesting possibilities available. All "​club"​ walks. over this period are pi;​ivately-arranged,​ but if you ate young and attractive, pleasant cotpany, and/or a-rea6onable walker (in that order), you should have no trouble joining up with One of the bunches, But don't make the mistake Of rushing up to the leader you select and-shoUting breathlessly "Can I come on-your walk?" There is a certain-rigid prOtocol to be observed when urging in on A private walk. First find your leader. 'He will inevitably befound standing, talking, map in hand, garrounded by a stall fish-eyed group (who probably have no intention Of going oh the ruddy walk, arid aren't interested anyway).

 + 
 +Frank Leyden is going down the Kowmung from Ginkin to Waterfall Creek to Kanangra, a leisurely trip - plenty of swimming, lazing and optional side forays. Friday 22.12.62 - Tuesday 1.1.63 inclusive. 
 + 
 +Wilf Hilder'​s following the Capertee and Colo from Glen Davis to Upper Colo (we think), again with side trips which the less energetic can exchange for a day's spinebash at base camp - same dates as Frank'​s trip.

 +Stuart Brooks will he going down the Kowmung (if he can find it) from Tuglow Creek to Gingra Range to Kanangra and hopes to combine with Frank Leyden'​s party for several days including New Year's eve - Friday 28.12.62 to Saturday 5.1.63. 
 + 
 +Alex Colley will be going somewhere, sometime, but up to now, at any rate, has managed do keep his timetable and itinerary a complete and dark secret. 
 + 
 +Then there will be the usual free and easy camp at North Era all swimming, eating and talk, with odd bods coming and going at all kinds of odd times. Here you'll meet a lot of the non-active membersbushwalkingwise (ugh!) and their numerous offspring. So don't count on sleeping much after 5 a.m. Kids are great alarm clocks.

 +===== Outward Bound Course For Girls. ===== 
 + 
 +Dot Butler and Jane Putt have been appointed to the Women'​s Liaison ​ Committee of the Outward Bound Movement, under the Chairmanship of Mrs. W.R. Callen, O.B.E. This Committee has been formed to assist in matters concerning promotion, recruiting and planning work. This Committee of over 25 members represents many sections of Industry an dSocial Activities, of which Bushwalking is one. Plans are well advanced for the third Outward Bound Girls' Course to be held in Australia, which is to be at Port Hacking, Sydney during February 1963. 
 + 
 +On Saturday, 15th December, a visit will be made to the Outward Bound School on the Hawkesbury. Anyone interested in attending, to see the School in action, please contact Dot Butler. People influential in quarters which could be forthcoming with recruits for the next Girls Course are especially invited. Instructors are also wanted - see Dot B. if interested.

 +Paddy'​s been looking like an expectant father lately and your S.B.W. snooper was not slow to take note. Something was in the wind! 
 + 
 +On a simple pretext Paddy'​s cunningly concealed workshop was invadedand from odd sketches and patterns lying around, the above artist'​s sketch was created. 
 + 
 +When confronted with this evidence, Paddy had to admit there was something in it. Asked about possible price, Paddy could only say that unfortunately it would far exceed his original estimate - in fact, it would probably cost about 6 times as much.

 +===== Science, Naturally. ===== 
 + 
 +=== Our Aborigines. === 
 + 
 +The Australian aboriginal has been much maligned, being variously described as shiftless, dull, filthy, uncivilised (whatever that means) and dour. 
 + 
 +H. Finlayson, sometime Curator of Mammals, South Australian Museum has studied ​them in their natural surroundings and his views, apart from their interest, must carry some weightIn his words'the typical western black is a fine figure of a man. Though he tends to be sparse, particularly around the legs, many men of middle age are as heavily muscled about the upper parts as the average white man. In emergency, they are capable 6f extraordinary feats of endurance in covering long distances in a short time without sustenance. 
 + 
 +Amazement has often been expressed that the aborigines make no use Of animal skins in constructing covering to improve their living conditions, and this fact has been regarded as another instance of their "​lowliness"​ and "​stupidity"​. No one, however, who has seen the combination of acute observation and deduction, with boundless energy or application,​ which they bring to the solution their hunting problems, could subscribe to that idea. 
 + 
 +Rather, they have an in-bred dislike of all impedimenta. They will tolerate no sacrifice of mobility. A party may decide suddenly to move on to another locality. Without more ado, the men reach for their spears and walk away, and their women follow, carrying no more than a yam stick, (a sharpened stake about 4 feet long) a wirra (a shallow wooden bowl used for scooping aside earth loosened by the yam stick) and their youngest child. 
 + 
 +In evolving a capacity to endure, naked, heat, cold and rain they have acquired something much more portable and permanent than a skin tent or a fur cloak. 
 + 
 +So long as he is quite naked, he has a natural dignity of bearing, but when he dons the cast-offs of the white-man he becomes a scarecrow. Also, since he knows nothing of those precautions against accumulating filth which long ages of experience in the wearing of clothes have taught the white man, he rapidly becomes verminous and dirty. 
 + 
 +In their tracking ability, they display more than acuteness of vision, for the rapid interpretation of what is observed is even more remarkable. The tracks of many of the small marsupials and rodents are almost identical, and are usually distorted in the sandy soil. Yet the aboriginal will unhesitaing1y name the animal from its tracks, and the subsequent capture from its burrow will invariably prove him correct. 
 + 
 +He is a remarkable eater, and I have seen two men sit down and in a six-hour session, consume a fifty pound kangaroo. This is not gluttony, but a very valuable asset in surroundings where meals could be a long way apart. 
 + 
 +Among themselves, a general kindliness of disposition is a marked trait, and there is little evidence of implacable hatreds and the lusting delight in another'​s pain, which in the natives of the Americas, for example, serve to remind one that man is part fiend. 
 + 
 +A sweet tooth is a leading characteristic of both sexes at all ages, and the gins go to infinite trouble to get honey and other local sweets like the sugary exudation of the mulga twigs and the honey ant. The latter is relished exceedingly. It is a deep burrowing ant which feeds on the mulga bloom. After rain, its abdomen distends to a bladder the size of a grape, and is filled with a thin syrup, the sweetness of which is relieved by a slight acidity and a flavour of malt. The gins will frequently do half a day's heavy digging, sometimes following the galleries four feet deep in the loam to get perhaps fifty or a hundred ants.
  
-+It is a solemn moment for the gins when at last they lay down their yam-sticksand prepare to give themselves up to the silent enjoyment of the ravishing delicacyOne by onethe feebly struggling ants are tenderly seized by the forepartthe abdomen placed between the lipsand its contents squeezed into the mouth...

-Our Aboriginies:​+
  
-The Australian aboriginal has been much maligned, being variously described as shiftless, dull, filthy, Uncivilised (whatever that means) Aid dour. 
-H. Finlayson, sometime Curator of Mammals, South Australian Museum 
-has studied them in their natural surroundings and his views, apart from 
-their interest, must carry some-weight. In his words, '​the-typical 
-western black i6 a fine figure of d'Man: Though he tends to be sparse, particularly around the legs) many men of middle age are as heavily muscled about the-upper. parts as the aveage white man. In emergency, they are capable 6f extraordinAry feats of endurance in covering long distances in a short time without sustenance. 
-Amazement has Often been expressed that the-aborigines make no use Of animal skins in constructing covering to improve their living donditions) and this fact has-been tegarded 8.6 another instande of -their-ulowlinas"​ and "​stufaditir"​. No one; however) who has seen-the combinatiOn of acute observgtion and deduction) with boudless-energy or application,​ which they bring to the solution their hunting problems, could subscribe to that idea. 
-Rather, they have an in=bred dislike of all impedimenta. They -will - t6lerate no gacrifice of mObility. A-15arty may decide euddenly to move on to another locality. Without more ado, the men'​t'​each for their spears and walk away) and their women follow, cairying no more-than'​a yam-stick, (a shepened stake abou:​6.4-feet long) a wirra (a shallow wooden bowl used for 
-scooping aside earth loosened by the yam stick) and their youngest child. 
-In-evolling a capacity-to endure, naked, heat, cold and rain they have acquired something much more portable and permanent that a skin tent or a - fur cloak. 
-so' 
-86 long as he is quite,​naked3 he has a natural dignity of bearing; but when he-dons-the cat offs of the he becomes a scarecrow. Also, -since he Imlows nothing of those precautions againstaccumulating filth whidh long ages of experience in the wearing, of clothes have taught the white man, he rapidly becomes verminous and dirty. 
-- 
-- In their tracking ability, '​theydisplay more than acuteness of vision, 
-for the rapid interpretation of what is obseved is even m6re remarkable. The tracks of many'​of the small marsupials and rodents aft almost identical, and 
-are usually distorted in the sandy soil. Yet the aboriginal will unhesitaing17 mame the animal Ma* its tracks, and the subsequent Capture from its burrow will invariably prove him correct. 
-December 1962 The Sydney Bushwalkor 23 
-He-iS a remarkable eater, and I have seen tl-h76 men sit dowt and in-a six hour session, consume a fiftyTpound kangaroo. This-is not gluttony, but a very valuable asset in surroundings where meals could be a long way apart. 
-Among themselves, a general, kindliness of disposition is a marked trait, and there is little evidence of implacable hatreds and the lustingdelight in anotheris pain, which in the natives of the Americas, for example, servo to remind one that man is part fiend. 
-A sweet tooth is a leading aharacto:​ristic-of both 6exes at all ages, and the gins go to infinite trouble to get honey and other local sweets -r5Te 
-the sugary exudation of the mulga twigs and the honey ant. The - latter is relished exceedingly. It i6 a deep burrowing ant which feeds on 
-- 
-the tulga bloom. After rain, its abdomen distends to a bladder the size of a grape, and is filled with a thin sy'​rup,'​ the sweetness of which is 
-relievod by a slight acidity and-a flavour-of-malt. The gins will frequently do half a dayts heavy digging, sometimes following the galleries four feet 
-0 deep in the loam to get perhaps fiftY or a hundred ants. 
-It is a soleMh moment for the gins when gt lest they lay downtheir yam. 
-sticks, and prepare to give themselves up to the silent enjoyment of the ravishing delicacy. One by on the feebly struggling ants are tenderly seized by the forepart, the abdomen placed between the lips, and its contents 
-squeezed into the mouth 
 It is a solemn moment for the ants, also.' It is a solemn moment for the ants, also.'
