FROM HIS OWW ■WELCOMING. PROFESSOR DAVID'S ADVEH- ' TUB.ES. (Received 9.50 a.m.) SYDNEY, this day. The Lord Mayor presided over a great citizens' meeting to welcome Profeseor David back from the Antarctic The doors of the Town Hall were closed early to prevent overcrowding, and Professor ■Uavid was locked out and was unable to gain entrance for half an hour, while the l-ederal Attorney-General (Mr. Hughes) only forced his way through at the back of an -alderman. Hundreds were unable to gain admission. Professor David, in the course of his speech, said it was almost as difficult to get into the gathering as it was to work his way up to the magnetic pole. In this connection he wished to say with great emphasis, that the. magnetic pole was not discovered, not located, by himself, but by Mr. Mawson. He laid stress on the fact that during the four months' journey the party did not consume one drop of alcohol. One occasion, a birthday celebration, they had just a little wine, but found their resistance to cold dropped, so they dropped the alcohol.
