TEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE ber. SHACK FIXED UP Puts Final Touches on His Lonely Antarctic Home for Next 8 Months. LITTLE AMERICA, Antarctica, March 28. UP)--(Via. MacKay Radio) --Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd put the final touches today on a little shack where he will spend eight months with a battery of thermometers for company. It's all in the name of science. Alone in this tiny portable house at a winter advance base 123 miles south of Little America, he plans to study antarctic meteorological phenomena until the end of Octo- 2r. There will be perils aplenty. Intense cold. Depressing darkness. Sudden storms. Yet, said Byrd as he departed by plane: "I hope no one will make anything of what I am about to do ... I am making no sacrifice of any kind." He urged the 55 men at Little America not to become concerned should his radio fail. After all, he smiled, "I am not a radio operator, so the radio will probably fail." In his abserice, the men at Little America will be under command of Dr. Thomas C. Poulter, Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, senior scientist and Second in command.

W--Mrs. Samuel Insull's difficulties appar- ·ntly were growing today. It appeared unlikely France would grant her more than the transit visa she now holds and it was said she ras accorded that only because MARCH 28 m I 934 ·--· England had been named as her ultimate destination. England's refusal to grant a visa, however, apparently has wrecked the usefulness of the French permit. Since no visa is required for Italy, there is a possibility Mrs. Insull may go in that direction. However, official quarters no longer maintain she will be expelled as an undesirable alien for assisting her husband to thwart the police when he fled Greece. This official attitude gave rise to the belief snt. may seek to remain here. A rumor circulated today that negotiations were under way for Insull to go to Yemen, in southwestern Arabia.
