WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 10, 1940 BLYT1IEVILLE (ARM) COUR1EB NEWS Cruiser's Designer Crew Is Completed To Make Tn'p Over Antarctic Ice I'.J 1 NICA Service The strangest polar expedition in history will get, underway about Feb. 15 when the Penguin I, Antarctic snow cruiser, lumbers olf /or a date with the South Pole anywhere from a month to mere thnn two months later. The Research Foundation for the . Armour Institute of Technology nl '• Chicago, which developed the giant | traveling laboratory, announced the tentative starting dale after receiving filial wcrd on arrangements by radio from the Byrd' expedition ship, North Star, which t is transporting the cruiser to Little ' America. The North Star, now at New Zealand, will reach Little America about Feb. 1 accompanied by the supply ship, Bear of Oakland,,-- — -..,,„...,„„ ,„,.„„„.•,„ Unless there are unforeseen ou- omnibus. He is shown above with stucles in the uncharted wastes over which the cruiser will travel, it will travel two legs of a triangle from the- Byrd expedition base at Little America to the pole and back to another expedition camp to be set up in Palznerliuid. Some two months or more will be required for each leg of the I rii). CREW SELECTKD FOB I'OLAK Tltlf The cruiser will carry five men, headed by Dr. T. C. Poulter, who designed the machine. Dr. P. A. Wade, of Miami University, will serve as chief scientist. The ethers, according to radios from the North Star, will be Clyde Griffiths, of the navy submarine service, Diesel engine machinist; Sergt. Felix Ferrnmto, marine corps, radio en- elncer; and Technical Sergl. Theodore A. Petras. of the marine corps who will operate the aujdlimy in plane carried by the cruiser. Theirs will be no dash of geographic discovery. The pcle is already known. It will be a slow march aimed at discovering all that can be learned of the nature of the land fcclow and the sky above the cruiser's gigantic rubber- tired wheels. Meteorological observations will lie taken with a view to finding out more about South Pacific weather. Seismographic data- will be accumulated lo discover the origins of, earthquakes in the Southern Hemisphere. Rocks and minerals'will be collected .and analyzed to find "out whether valuable ores in commercial quantities are present. SHIP TO OPEN SECOND BASK In the mean time, Ihe North Star will have relurned frcm Little America (o Valparaiso, Chile, to pick up more supplies, and returned to the Antarctic lo establish the second base. The exact site has not been chosen, but will be established according to conditions found. The snow cruiser, crossing the pole, will then wcvk toward this new base. Parties proceeding inland from the base will probably meet the cruiser, and when this junction is made, the first man to "come out," Dr. Poulter, will fly back and return to America. All along the slow course of the snow cruiser toward; the pole, complete .surveys will be made for a distance of fioo miles on either side of the course by the cruiser's Scarlett Goes Rug- Cutting PAGE Dr. T. C. Poiiltcr, designer of the Antarctic snow cruiser, will l>c one of four expedition members lo journey (o tlio pole in tire ice plane The cruiser has 5000-mile range, and will be provisioned for a year. Admiral Byrd, in charge of the expedition, boanlerl the North Star for Little America nt Balboa, O. Z., i'ut will not accompany Ihe snow cruiser on its trip.
