12 Nevertheless I had a contrary pull upon me to which I was responsive almost from the beginning - the pull to return to work at the national level and to interest myselfin national problems, which I knew would be possible because ofwhat I understood to be the information and insights that come to the GovernorGeneral.

In the days before the depression, life was reasonably good. One anecdote of passing interest is that when my father was an apprentice at Mort's Dock Sir William McKelI, later GovernorGeneral of Australia, was also a boilermaker apprentice there. They knew one another in those days and Sir William and I still sometimes talk about my father. When they were in the last year of their apprenticeship the question arose of whether they were then sufficiently ski lIed to ask for adult pay-they were not legally entitled to it-and the 'boys', as the apprentices called themselves and were called by others, of that particular year met and decided that someone should approach the boss and put it to hirn that the work they were doing entitled them to a tradesman's pay.

Rereading his work in late I973 was an exercise ofan attractive but abstract kind.
