PHONE REPUBLICAN HEADQUARTERS, 585-5439 if you need transportation to the Polls to vote November, 5th lONcw YartTimaNtwiStrvfce NEW YORK Two American scientists have reported evidence that at least two mountains deep within Marie Byrd Land periodically spout steam Into the frigid Antarctic sky. This report of volcanic activity and another recent one by a New Zealand expedition . suggest that a number of Antarctic mountains may be like many-layered hot fudge sundaes. That is. Instead of being formed purely of rock, they may contain both ice and ash layers. These developments help close the "ring of fire" that encircles the Pacific Ocean. For reasons not yet understood, the Pacific is fringed by a belt of volcanic and earthquake activity. However, the poorly explored continent of Antarctica has represented a gap in that belt. One newly discovered area of volcanic activity there has made possible the existence of a miniature "oasis," where 1,000 1. '50,000 mosses thrive in an otherwise frozen world. Until recently the only known active volcanoes in the south polar region were at two sites on its fringes. One was Mount Erebus, a giant dome of ice and volcanic debris towering over McMurdo Sound. It steams almost continuously and occasionally throws lava "bombs" into the air. The other is Deception Island, a crater submerged, except for Its rim, in the sea off the Antarctic peninsula. A breach in the rim enables ships to take refuge there, making it one of the best harbors in those latitudes. However, on occasion the water in the harbor bolls, removing the bottom paint from ships at anchor. Last December an eruption forced emergency evacuation of British and Chilean stations on the island. The most recent discovery is reported in the current Issue of Science by Dr. Wesley E. Lemasurier of the University of Colorado and Dr. F. Alton Wade of Texas Technological College. Dr. Wade was a member of several expeditions led by the late Rear Adm. Richard E. Byrd. On Mount Berlin in the flood range and Mount Hampton In the executive committee range the two scientists have found great ice towers that they believe were formed by escaping steam. Both summits were examined from low-flying helicopters, and Mount Hampton was visited on foot. The ice towers are 30 to 60 feet high. No steam was escaping at the time of their visit early this year. Nor could vent holes be seen from the helicopter. However, it was pointed out that snow could fill such holes within a few days after a pause In steam venting. The New Zealand expedition in January, 1967, that reached the summit of Mount Melbourne, to the west of the Ross Sea, found ice towers that were hollow and, in some cases, venting steam. The Inside of one was large enough for all four members of the party to stand inside. Ice cliffs on the flank of this volcano show what seem to be alternate layers of ice and ash, suggesting that this may represent the Internal structure of the mountain.
