AUSTIN (Mfrm., HERAtO | II Monday, Dee. 29, 1958 10 Floor of Ocean Called Rogged Like Rockies By JOHN BARBOUR Associated Press Science Writer WASHINGTON (AP)-fhe floor of the Arctic Ocean may be as rugged as the Rocky Mountains, a scientist reported today, The report was one more close- up of Mother Earth provided by U.S. scientists during the International Geophysical Year, which ends Wednesday. It was made by geophysiclst Kenneth Huhklns of Columbia Uhi-| verslty's Lament Geological Laboratory at a meeting of the Amer- j ioan Assn. for the Advancement of Science. Hunkins reported on what the underwater, world looked like—a world through which the nuclear submarines Nautilus and Skate worked their "way carefully a few months ago. Floated on Ice Using echoes from explosions, | they charted the Arctic Ocean bot-1 torn. : They found a huge underwater; plateau stretching from Ellesmere Island, the northernmost point ofj Canadian territory, to eastern Si-' boria. / In the center, parts of this plateau come within 4,500 feet of the! .surface. On the sides, it drops to! depths of 10,000 to 15,000 feet. 1st Photos U.S. Air Force and IGY scientists made the first photographs of the Arctic Ocean floor from their floating laboratory, Drifting Station A. There are remarkable numbers of rocks strewn over the ocean bottom, as seen in the underwater pictures. Apparently the rocks were carried by floating ice from shore areas and dumped in the arctic j ooze. This sort of rock-strewn un- 1 derwater scene is not seen in warmer waters. Dredged Many Rocks Later the scientists aboard drift-, ing station a dredged many of the rocks from depths of over a mile. These rocks are being studied! with results that may lead to<aj more complete story of the past ; ice ages and ice movement in the '' arctic, Hunkins said. There is life on the floor of thei arctic, he reported—but It is muchj more sparse than in other oceans.j Sea animals like brittle stars, sea' cucumbers and bryozoans were brought up in the dredge and; photographed. They were found as close as a few hundred miles of the North Pole. ! 'Empty' Rifle ' Kills Youth, 16 ANOKA, Minn. (AP)-A stunt with an "unloaded" rifle brought, death to a 16-year-old Coon Rapids, youth late Saturday. | Deputy Sheriff James Sampson said Donald DeForrest aimed at liis chest with a rifle the youth I believed was empty. j "Look, I'm Superman,"' young; DeForrest told his companion, 1 Patrick A. McGuire, 16, also ofj Coon Rapids. With that, Donald aimed at his chest, pulled the trigger, and fell dead. The McGuire youth told Sampson the two were coming out of the woods, after hunting squirrels, when Patrick fired his rifle five times, believing that he had emptied the weapon. The other boy took the rifle from Patrick and held both riflei when he was shot fatally. Sgt. Sampson termed the death accidental.
