left in those coconut shells under fresh leaves. So it was, for a few days. Now there's no water. The shells are dry. People drink from the river.`` (60) = Did someone drink all the water?}%
{``"Who cares what you believe--Fatty!" "I got the conch!" "You gimme the conch back!"`` (69) = No one can agree and the conch is not helping.}

afraid of on this island.`` (63)}%

{``For now the littluns were no longer silent. They were reminded of their personal sorrows; and perhaps felt themselves to share in a sorrow that was universal. They began to cry in sympathy, two of them almost as loud as Percival.`` (66)}
\topic{Human Nature}
{``I tell you the smoke is more important than the pig`` (61) = Hunters are priortizing non essentail tasks over rescue and other essentail tasks}%
