SYDNEY, December 9. Dr Hadden, ethnologist, of the University of Cambridge, has returned from a visit to Pa.pua, spent mostly in the cannibal country. He strongly "urges the immediate appointment of an ethnologist at Papua. The natives, he says, are changing rapidly, and it will soon' be too late to perform highly important ethnological work that can lie performed now. This work is more important to science than Antarctic research. The professor says that he discovered a cult of skull-houses containing shelves of the skulls of people killed in war grotesquely decorated.
