Appeal to readers

“Notes and News” could be made more useful if readers were to provide more information for it. Notices and reports of meetings and symposia would be particularly welcomed, as would news of Departments and Institutions concerned with Pacific anthropology and news of individual research activities in areas of Oceania other than New Guinea. Activities in the latter area are reported fully in the University of Papua and New Guinea publication Man in New Guinea which is distributed free to individuals and institutions directly concerned with research in New Guinea and is available on a subscription basis to others. Enquiries about MING should be made to:

Department of Anthropology and Sociology,

University of Papua and New Guinea,

Box 1144, P.O.,
