Merchant seaman Lauri Kannikoski had not seen his native Finland for 10 years when he arrived at Geraldton, Western Australia, but he met so many other Scandinavians there that he decided to settle among them. "They all seem so prosperous and happy," he said. Now Lauri is enjoying his seventh season as a cray fisherman, owns two boats and fishing gear worth 7 000 Pounds, has his own home and car, and is married to an Australian girl. They have two children and are expecting a third soon. March 1959
