Now at 4J Byrd may look back over a period of 27 years of accomplishment since he nuic'o an entry iii his diary at 14 t h a t he would explore th: North Pole. These accomplishments have brought him tho rank of rear admiral in the United States Navy, alt h o u g h be was at one tinie discharged because of injured bouen in his foot. D u r i n g the war Byrd entered tho naval aviation service and was active in planning the first round-the-world flight for naval plines in 1919, although he did not make iho trip himself. Since that timo events have followed in quick succession definitely linking him with the development o£ flight iu this country. The most Important accomplishment heralding Ills entry into Arctic flying was in 1925 when with (he assistance of Floyd Bennett, w:3o has since died, and assistants he flew over (he Arctic, gaining much valuable information for science.

On tho morning of July 1 the plane was landed in the sea off Ver Sur Mer, a short distance from Paris, after a harrowing battle wita fog during which the plane had actually been over Paris. After he- returned from Paris he began careful preparations for the South Pole trip which culminated in the .sailing of the bark City of New York from -New York, August 25, 192S, for Ross Sea. Then followed foveral flights and mishaps, notably the on a of tbo pole, during which they made minute observations. Until a few days ago some doubt had been expressed by Byrd's backers whether he and his companions would not have to spend another ye.iv'in tho Arctic wastes. This, however was eliminated when tha relief ship broke through the barrier Tuesday. The City of New York is oxpectcd to make for D u n e d i n , New Zealand, whore it Is though^ Byrd may board a liner to the west coast of Soulii America. Sue for $5,000 Damages.
