Adventurer Takes Hearers With Him
Over Entire Trip Picturing I
Dangers Encountered
Relating his adventures on a recent
trip to the Arctic and especially Baf-
fin Land, in a most interesting man-
ner, and showing 6,000 feet of re-
markable moving pictures and slides
Donald B. MacMillan, renowned Arc-
tic explorer and distinguished lectur-
er, gave one of the most popular lec-
tures on the Oratorical' program this
year last night in Hill auditorium. ,
"Little Known of .Yorth"
"Little is known of the Northern
regions," said Mr. MacMillan, "ex:
plo'rers go there to obtain informa-
tion. I organized my expedition, fit-
ted out a schooner, and made the jouri
eey in the hope of being able to make
some contribution or, at least, to fill
some blank page in the story of this
country". He pointed out that it was
their purpose to find out something
more about terrestrial magnetism and
to attempt to discover why it is that
the needle of the compass is grad-
ually moving westward. He explain-
ed that when their party was 150
miles from the pole that the compass
refused to act and that they were forc-
ed to make their journey further only
with the aid of the stars and North-
The speaker took his hearers on
his entire trip with the aid of his I
slides and cinema. Leaving Wiskas-
set, Maine, in August, 1921, the
sch1ooner Bowdoin with its load- of
supplies, food, and crew, set out on
its exploration trip that was to last
13 months. They sailed north by Nova
Scotia and later arrived at Labra-
dor. 'lis pictures clearly portrayed
their every perience-
Shp is Frozen In
Chtting through the Polar "pan" ice
with their ittle schooner, the explor-
er made their way to Baffin Land and
here made ready for the approach of
the winter. Their ship was frozen
in for 274 days and during that time
their experiences were numerous.
These were all vividly pictured in the7
Mr. MacMillan pointed out that the,
Eskimos are always happy and smil-
ing and that their religion consists
in the belief that everything has i\
spirit, the stars, the moon, the su)i
and all things. He said that, con-a
trary to the belief that glaciers ar'
sometimes retreating, they are always
Mr. MacMillan mentioned the fad
that many valleys in that country are
Iilled with coal. Scenes of seal hunt-i
ing polar bears, igloo building, dif-
ferent types of Eskimos, icebergs, Es-
kimo dogs, and walruses were shown
on the screen Moving pictures show-
ing the building of snow houses was
especially interesting and presented
glimpses of what has seldom been
seen by Americans.
Carried Radio With Jimn "
An interesting fact concerning Mr.
MacMillan's trip is that he carried a
radio with him all the way and in
this manner was able to keep in touch
with the outside world even whert
frozen in and hundreds of miles from
the civilization of the World. Dolls
were taken by the explorers and giv-
en to the Eskimo children. The speak-
er said that their joy was especially
great on seeing, for the first time
these American toys.
The explorer paid an excellent trib-
ute to the hardy Eskimo dogs when
lie said that they are untiring and'
that they will pull sledges over rough
ice wth no complaint for six days and
more without food when they know
it can not be obtained.

the topic of his lecture, "Our Animal i

known as one of the greatest natural-
ists in the country. He has written
several books on animal life and has
done much in adding to the knowledge
of animals, reptiles and fish that has
already been gathered. In studying
animals he has discovered their many
peculiar traits and their reactions un-
der certain circumstances. With the
aid of motion pictures which he has
taken much pains to secure, he is able
to tell of the most peculiar kinds of
beasts in an unusual manner. Five
reels of motion pictures will be used
to illustrate his lecture. One of these
reels is unique in bringing together
the four types of anthropoid apes
which/ Darwin has' alleged are the
nearest to man.
Here are scenes of the only gorilr
that ever lived long enough in cap-
tivity to be fully studied with the mo-
tion picture camera. There are also
intimate scenes of the chipmanzee I
organ-outang and the gibbon. Some
of the animals are introduced to the
wantsof civilization and even dine
at "a table in strangely human fash-;
Include Animals of Many Types
The pictures include animals of
many types, ranging from the largest
elephantsown to the smallest mon-
keys, also species of snakes, lizards
and other reptiles, a wide variety or
insects and fish of all kinds. In re-
gard to his picture, Andrew Carnegie
once said, "They are the most wo lder-
ful motion pictures of which I hav'j
any knowledge".

Baltimore, Md., Feb. 28.-It
has been estimated by Lord Car-I

Includes Underclass Games, Cap Night
Cane Day, May Festival and
Two Sport Meets
Grouping of Apring events into nine
days, from May 11 to 19, inclusive, was
favorably acted upon at the Student
council meeting last night. This -is
the first of what is expected to be
annual occasion. While no name for
the week has been decided upon,
Spring week has already been suggest-
ed. Many organizatlons are in fio'r
of the project, including the Uni ,
the Athletic association, and the Stu-
dent council..
To Include Major Spring Events
The dates of the major spring
events will be changed to bring them
within the designated period. A ten-
ta.tive schedule has already been ac-
cepted by the Student council, sub-
IJect to revision in necessary cases.
This schedule makes Friday and SAt-
urday, May 11 and 12, Dad's days and
provides for the Tug of War on Fr!-
day, and the.Spring games, the 111--
nois Track meet and a Mimes' pro-
gram on Saturday.
Cane day will be changed to Sun-
day, May 13, and plans are under ay
for an All-campus convocation on
that date also. Wilfred B. Shaw has
suggested that class reunions may be
held within , these dates instedt of
during Commencement as heref-
fore. -Such;a plan would relieve the
congestion here during the gradua-
tion week and would give the visiting
alumni a chance to be here while the
undergraduates are still preent. 'Com-
bined exhibits will be arxra-ng d . for
Monday. A regatta on the Huron
ngay also be held on this day altjogh
one' of the later, days has been sug-
gested. ,
Exhibits Arranged
The combined exhibits will contluiiu
on Tueday and the Senior pl4y may
be arranged for that date. Wednesday
the May festival begins,. the conbined
exhibits will be continued, the Ohio
State Golf meet, and, probably a car-
nival in Waterman and Barbour gym-
nasia may be held. This carnival
will be produced by campus organIa-
tions and 'its exact nature is ,a yet,
undecided. Thursday will have the
May festival, the combined exhibits,
and the carnival repeated.
~ On Friday C-an Night ceremonies
will be held, the date- being cha~ned
from Saturday to allow the visiting
athletes to attend. The Interscholas-
tic Track meet will be held in the
afternoon. On that day also, the
Architect's party will be held. On
Saturday, May 19, the closing day of
the week the May festival, the Inter-
scholastic Track meet, the Minnesota
baseball gaim.e and a Union dance, are
scheduled. The regatta on the Huron
may be held on this date.
Marathon Canoe Race Suggested
Suggestion that a Marathon Canoe
race, after the manner of those 1ld
here before the war, be included' waV s
introduced by one of the visiting stu-
dents. These are some few Of- the
events which it is planned to include
in the week. Stutlents having ideas
for new features should bring them
