Abstract

The monthly meeting of the Royal Society
of Tasmania was held in the Society's
rooms last evening. His Excellency
the Governor, Sir Gerald Strickland,
who was accompanied by the Lady
Edeline, presided.
Professor Klaatch had forwarded casts of two skulls-Neanderthal skull and one from Java, Pittecanthropus erectus. It was believed that the skulls formed the most interesting objects ever presented to the ethnological branch of the society.
Senator Dobson presented some observations of his visits to the Northern Territory. He remarked that the vegetation was sparse, but there was a possibility of growing rice or jute, but labour would have to be sourced from India.
Much discussion ensued. The meeting then terminated.
