    In essence, the communication specialist in the field with his complex electronic gear and the native who beats a hollow log both perform the same function-communication over a distance. However, there is no gainsaying that the hollow log is undoubtedly the more reliable of the two communication equipments. The implication of this analogy is not as far fetched as it may appear. It has been found t... View full abstract»
