the party of 11 men from the Byrd expedition who reached Little America and found it almost buried under 6 years of Antarctic snow In the following dispatch he describes the trek across the ice to the American outpost at the bot tom of the world By H D QUIGG United Press Staff Correspondent tittle America UR Eleven weary Antarctic explorers nursed unexpected weather burns Saturday after a 6hour 6mile trek to the land of frozen fantasy America For 3 of the group it was like a visit home for as members of the last Byrd Antarctic expedition they lived there for 2 years They rummaged through their former America like school boys remembering and reminiscing For the other 8 including this correspondent it was like a glimpse into another world where seals danced across the snow where aloof penguins stood like statues where sky and snow met in an indeterminable horizon For the 8 neophytes the trek through the snow and ice and the visit to the old Byrd quarters was an adventure never to be forgot ten But Saturday morning they and their companions paid nature for the experience Although iiie Ant arctic sky was a sullen greyish blanket during the trip the Polar wind seared and blistered their skins as no tropic sun ever could Starting out from the icebreak er Northwind Friday at a m the 24hour Antarctic day is dull and made our way afoot and by ski over the treacherous crevasses and cracks of Eoss sea and established a beachhead on the mainland From there on it was a tiring tingling uphill trek to Little miles away As we forged across the Antarctic wastes we could see giant seals skimming across the distant white hills and Emperor penguins standing mo tionless against the gray Polar sky like welldressed men of distinc tion at a formal dinner party We reached Little America m around noon and found the huts and towers of the home base of the 1941 expedition almost buried in the Antarctic snows But build ing ventilators smoke flues and radio antenna poles were still in view Under the instructions of Paul A Siple of Arlington Va a vet eran of the 1941 expedition we burrowed 3 feet into the snow and found a shaft leading down to an icy but still recognizable Pompeii As we moved through the un derground rooms of our Polar ghost town we spied remnants of the unused provisions of the 1941 expedition frozen hams and chickens hanging on a wall a for lorn looking advertisement for Love Affair a movie with Irene Dunne and Charles Boyer and a strangely nonyellow copy of the Oklahoma City Times proclaim ing the 3rdterm election of the late

Use Washington UR Radio and radar flying aids now being ap plied to civil aviation could have prevented nearly 25 per cent of last years crashes Civil Aeronau tics Administrator T P Wright estimated Saturday Why these aids were not in use is one of the questions the house commerce committee will want answered during the air safety in vestigation it will begin next Wednesday We are particularly interested said Chairman Charles A Wolver ton R N J in knowing not only the cause of accidents but wheth er the great developments in avia tion during the war have been made available to the airlines and to the government Wright attempted to supply some of the answers in a 2hour press conference He acknowledged there was a tremendous contro versy involving conflicting army navy and CAA views on how to combat bad weather landing haz ards He denied frequent claims that CAA has delayed adapting radar to commercial use He said CAA was not in on the secret of radar until mid1945 and wants more experience before permittingair line use He referred to the ground con trolled approach system which soon will be tested commercially at Washington New York and Chicago The army which had long wartime experience with the device used it Thursday night to bring in 2 civilian planes for emergency landings at Mitchell Field N Y claiming it probably saved the 22 lives involved GCA is the standard army and navy landing system Wright said his agency approves GCA as a supplementary device to its own instrument landing sys tem ELS which now is installed at 31 airports but is not being used yet in any passenger operations The ILS involves transmission of radio signals to a receiver in a plane showing a pilot his posi tion in relation to the runway Wright explained there have been equipment
