THAT avid yowie hunter, Rex GiIroy, of Katoomba, plans to come among 'us again next year to seek further proof that the creatures exist. In a letter this week he said he plans to check sightiogs which have been made near Lismore, Kyogle and Woodenbong.

"The yowie has been known to Aborigines for thousands of years, he said. Mr.
Gilroy said that 15 years ago a group of campers near Mount Lindsay spotted an ape-like beast nearly 4 m tall, but it eluded them in dense scrub.
