Vilhjalmur Stefansson, who will

series at 8 o'clock tonight in hill
auditorium, may change the subject
of his talk from "Abolishing the Arc-
tic" to "New Lands of the Tropics
and the Poles." His desire to give
the latter lecture, which' is a new one,
was expressed in a letter received

The Arctic explorer and lecturer
seems to enjoy introducing new 1e-
tures before Ann Arbor audiences.
The last time he spoke here, at a
University convocation in March of
1923, he introduced a lecture that he
had never given before, "The North-
ward Course of Empire," which has
been one of his most successful lec-
tures since that time.
To Give Experiences
As the title indicates, "New Lands
of the Tropics and the Poles" will
probably combine the speaker's ex-
periences in the Arctic and in Aus-
tralia, where he spent the summer on
a lecture tour, according to his let-
ter. Mr. Stefansson also plans to
show some pictures of "the so-called
desert of Australia." It is said that
the explorer has hopes of reclaiming
this desert by education, and of even-
tually proving that waste spaces can
be hospitable to settlers.
Mr. Stefansson's attitude in regard
to these so-called "waste" lands is
well expressed in the following,
which is reprinted from an interview
in the New York Times shortly after
the explorer's return from Australia
last month:
"The worthlessness of any large
territory is imaginary, such a terri-
tory is worthless simply because the
people insist on thinking it so. They
refuse to make any effort to conquer
such regions; the very thought of it
appalls them. The Arctic and the
Sahara alike are dismissed as hope-
less stretches of ice and sr nd because
of the centuries-old traditions that
have existed concerning them. i

remain until tomorrow morning.
