1 WBfiNBS^^VEMBER I, 1930 Bl'Jflfi:CBf FOR HIS TRIP TO S%s To Cany B)TC| Party, Rome But Its Up To Congress To Bring Him Back Home BY JtAnsiIAI, 1). SHUJ.MAN NBA Service Correspondent BOSTON', o'ta/.30._A l-t of people want to visit the South Pole, to judge by the. flood of mail into the headquarters of the Second Antarctic Expedition here, but not many people knew why Ihc Uniled .States, for the second time in a hundred years, Is going to give the Antarctic an official once-over. To thousands of people of all ages, (he trip apparently scmuls ike a Inrfc-lnil lo the Government tins expedition is serious business. There arc at least three important, reasons why, early In November, 125 men under the command of Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd will be on (heir way to (his mystery land of penguins and bllzxni'ds —to remain until the Spring of. First of all, there's the matter of land-claiming. The United States has nevei recognized Ihc claims of'nny other country to the Antractlc, nor lias it ever made a claim on the basts of the previous trips of Lincoln Ellsworth and Admiral Byrd. Jusl in case the Antarctic might .turn out to be valuable (as Alaska did, to almost everyone's surprise) it seems,to be a good Idea to get In tti the ground floor. , And so the Expedition is going to set np a morc-or-le.ss temporary residence, on the basis of which the Slate Department in Washington may subsequently assert, a claim. report that Little made familiar lo Amer: .Admiral Byrd's last trip, " given up has net been . by Expedition leaders. "...CT^.V MUC)3 OF SCIENTIFIC INTEREST Tlie second purixree of the expedition Is scientific. On • the basis of ils -observations ' Ihe expedition hopes to shed seme light on lhe_ mystery' of weather i Expedition leaders arc convinced thai, Antarctic observation posts will make it possible some day to forecast accurately weather in South Pacific area—a matter of tremendous importance lo airlines and naval aulhorilies. Biology, bacteriology, meteorology and geology are some of the sciences expected to benefit from the expedition. The clarity of the atmosphere will make possible a careful study of meteors. And because cosmic rays bombard the earth with greater Intensity In this area, they too will'be 'hi a favorable condition for study Regular observations will be taken of the Aurora'Australis, southern sister to. Die Aurora Borenlis. In' his last irip, Admiral Byrd found quantities or coal which, though not commercially valuable' suggest that interesting f oss jk mriv ' be found, or . such minerals as vanadium, -indium or radium. Apart from any commercial significance of such findings, they will be of interest as relics of a time when balmy weather mtiy have ruled the "Antarctic. The expedition will nls-^ carry on medical studies, testing (he effect of extra low temperatures on tlic human body. Men seem to be much healthier in Hie Antarctic although they recover from wounds and illness more slowly, perhaps because of (he energy required to keep warm. , The third Important purpose of this trip Is to solve the largest geographical question mark on the globe. There are a thousand miles of Antarctic coast-line still uncharted which, when mapped out may fcrm the basis of this country's claim. This work will be done by dog sled teams, with the possible help of airplanes or ships.
