Chapter Summary

The author, Luther Saroy, narrates his experiences from as a civil servant in the Dutch government. In the course of completing his learning assignment in Bandung, he was very surprised to see beggars, who were everywhere-near the classrooms, in the streets and even at the zoo. When Saroy entered OSIBA, he studied for only four years as the rule of practice for one year was eliminated. After his return from Java in December 1963, he became the secretary of the council of Serui. Then the Nieuw-Guinea Gulden was Indonesianized into the Irian Barat Rupiah (IBRP). Saroy ensured that there was no food crisis in Serui, unlike Manokwari and Biak. The Nieuw-Guinea Import & Export Maatschappij (NIGIMIJ) depot contained stocks of rice, sugar and milk. From Serui, Saroy was transferred to Bokondini to replace Bapak Karma around 1965, and he worked there for a long time.
