text: Yet another day an American Baptist missionary passed through. He was on his way from a refresher course for Sunday-school teachers to his own training school on the plains. His rimless glasses, blue bush-shirt and bright tie announced his nationality as he approached the bungalow. He talked of his family in Minnesota, American universities and the Marshall plan - a glimpse of a world which seems unreal here amongst these hills and primitive tribes.
