MONDAY, MAY 12, 1952 North Pole Explorers Find New Treasures, Peary Cache BLYTHKVTU,E (ARK.) COURIER NEWS ANCHORAGE, Alaska Wi — The^ daring North Pole Air Force plane-; lauding party has uncovered more | of Hie arctic's secrets. One, a cache left by the Rear Adm. Robert E. Peary expeditious In the early 1900s, had lain hidden nearly a half century. Others, scientific secrets, are as old as the arctic itself. Th« Air Force told today ot more of the work done by scientists and observers on the historic"flight, May 4 in which Lt. Col. William I P. Benedict, of Paradise, Calif., landed a C4T and took off ihree hours and 10 minutes later from the geographic North Pole. I These were some of the results: The depth of the ocean below the ice was determined by a .seismograph cho sounding at 14,150 feet. Dr. Albert P. Crary and his assistant, Robert Cottell, of the Cambridge Research Center. Cambridge, Mass., bored a 10-foot hole in a thick ice floe and dropped two pounds of TNT and exploded it in ihe experiment. Thaw Opens Cracks The annual spring iha\v was opening great cracks in the pack ice forming the polar ice cap. M, Sgt. Edison Blair, Los Angeles, said new leads varying from a few feet to several hundred feet in width were opening on every side of the Ice flow upon which the C47 sat. It was only by sheer coincidence, Sgt. Blair reported, that such an area, roughly ft half mile in size, t was free from the pressure ridges ^nt the geographical pole. The Adm. Peary cache was found on one of the plane's flights and landings over the region. The plane was traveling at low altitude over Cape Columbia, Ellesmere Island, where the Peary expeditions .left the last land to start a 500-mile trek over the ice. The cache was spotted find upon landing the party found it tained names and dutes between 1900 find 1909. There were four metal and wood boxes. GlaM Jars Left In other work, the expedition left at the North Pole six watertight glass Jars, wrapped in eye-catching luminescent red silk. The jars contained notes about the expedition and any finders were asked to record the date and position found and report to the Air Force Research Center. Such information may supply information on the speed and direction of little-known Arctic Ocean currents. The position of the floe as the geographic North Pole was verified by the navigator, 1st Lt. Herbert Thompson, Alleiiwood, Kan., by ' training his sextant on the sun. Lt. Col. Benedict and Lt- Col. Joseph Fletcher, of Shawnee, Okla.. said they "stacked four empty oil drums into a cairn, topped by an American flag. They also thrust an Air Force flag into the top of another barrel. Tito Blast U.S. For Trieste Act Yugoslav Accuses West of Trickery In Italian Move BELGRADE. Yugoslavia MP» — Premier Marshal Tito has accused America nnd Bill all] or Trickery in letting Italy help rule part nt the disnuted Free Territory of Trieste. lie spoke angrily over Belgrade radio yesterday about last week's agreement to elve Italy broad administrative powers in the British- Amcrlcan zine of the free territory —claimed by both Italy and Yugoslavia. The Allied occupation troops would remain in their area, he said, "only to ccver up what was done while Italy took over control of the economic and political affairs at (lie expense of the Yugoslav minority Slovenes In Trieste." "We must now he very careful because be cheated," he declared. "We retain the right, to undertake necessary measures to assure our rights." Tito's statement seemed to .suggest that he might move for formal annexation of the zone of the Trieste territory now occupied bj Yugoslav troops. The Yugoslav section—Zone . comprises rocky farmlands i fishinK villages. Zone A. under provisional American-British rule includes the strategic port city o! Trieste.

Civil Defense Director Arthur W. Wal- landcr says. Wallander said yesterdav In a report to Mayor Vincent R. Im- pcllitteri that this danger steins from the capability of ft single plane to carry a dozen of the new bombs. He said new bombs are as powerful as the old ones, which were so large that a bomber could only carry one. One plane, Wallander ,iald. could scatter a string of the small bombs in a single run over the Bronx and Manhattan. by Felix Carney It's exciting to learn with television. . . Yes television'* an educator as well as an entertainer. And leade.ra in edu- . cation are banding together | ^everywhere to make use of the new medium. We see that the Film Publishers Inc. of New York are producing a new series of educational film" specially for TV. And that in St. Louis, Mo., educators from 19 states got together to make big plans for the coming year. We mention these particulars only to show the great general trend of learning from television. Looks like the old proverb. "One picture is worth 10,000 words" i.s really taking hold. And certainly it's worth everyone's while to prove this to himself. To see how much longer he remembers something he's seen than what he's only heard of. And learning through TV has R s^pecial significance i n that 'the whole family learns together. It's f u n to watch, these special programs and then talk them over, compare . . . ypii'll see how many discussions will.arise Io rapture everyone's interest. And you'll certainly join with us in saying that television is an exciting and vital way to learning. It's important too, to learn about sets . . . when you're buying.

Engineers who have been appraising our national needs figure that the hill will run over three billion dollars for the country as • whole. \ And that's just for physical equipment and installations — that's just for the THINGS which make up a water supply system. What about the men who make those things function? Everything about a water works involves big money except the remuneration of Ihe men responsible for its dependable operation. Perhaps no other enterprise in America puts more solemn responsibilities upon men and pays them less for accepting them. Already, water-systems are finding it difficult to enroll and hold on to younger men qualified for advancement to key executive jobs. The will to serve is there but it withers in the face of a dollar that has lost almost half its purchasing power in (he course of a decade. If billions of dollars must be spent on plant facilities. It becomes all the more important that tbe men who direct these purchases and operate these facilities shall he of the highest character and ability, fan we afford not to invest thousands in human Intelligence and integrity? We need to spend a few dollars more. Blytheville Water Co. "Water If Your Cheapest Commodity" GENERAL NO CASH DOWN...Yo» Name the Terms Per Week!
