Two "Mormon Helping Hands" volunteers carry out trash at Kelly School in Compton. Other volunteers painted poles, window frames, and doors around the school. Members of the
Long Beach Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons) were the
primary organizational arm; but some school employees or friends of Kelly were included.

The Ropen of Papua New Guinea
Gomlongon Village, Umboi Island
On Umboi Island, Papua New Guinea, a few kilometers southwest

about two hundred villagers of Gomlongon.
The Ropen of Papua New Guinea
In 2005, Garth Guessman, another experienced ropen investigator, video-taped his own interview with Hodgkinson and the session was analyzed by Whitcomb, who became even more convinced the World War II veteran was telling the truth: The man had seen a ropen.
What is a Ropen?
. . . with other names for large nocturnal flying creatures being duwas, kundua, seklobali (or seklo-bali), indava, and wawanar. But all these names might refer to only one or two species.
