Bureau of Fisheries Expert Studies
Flora and Fauna for National
Geographic Society
Bringing with him more than a ton
of specimens of Arctic life, Dr. Walter
N. Koelz, of the Bureau of Fisheries,
has returned to Ann Arbor from his!
trip to Northern Greenland with the
MacMillan expedition. Ile was in-
vited to go on the journey by the
National Geographic society.
Leaving Wiscasset, Me., June 20, the
Peary, which carried airplanes of the
U. S. Navy, sailed past Nova Scotia,
between the island of Newfoundland
and the mainland, up the cost of
Labrador, and then through Davis
Strait for Greenland. Dr. Koelz was
on the Peary for most of the trip up,
but changed to the Bowdoin later.
Godhavn, a Danish town, was the
first point touched on the west coast
of Greenland. The boats followed the
coast line to South Upernivik, from
where they headed into Baffin Bay.
The second day out they encountered
ice, and for three days, the ships
bucked the ice pack.
Battle Ice
Finally a "lead" appeared in the
pack, and the party was able to go
on. After its struggle with the ice,
the ship was in good condition, though
all the paint was worn off by the
pieces of ice, three feet thick which
continually imperiled the craft.
At Booth Bay, the expedition reach-
ed the first Smith Sound eskimo set-
tlement. These eskimos, according to
Dr. Koelz, are of a pure stock, those
in southern. Greenland being part
Etah, the summer headquarters,
was reached Aug. 1. It was from here
that the airplanes made their flights
over land to the west, in search of a
suitable advance base. They were
unsuccessful in this effort, as on ac-
count of adverse weather conditions,'
no landing place could be found. 1
Dr. Koelz pointed out that one's
physiological reactions are greatly
altered in polar regions. The chief
evidence of this, he says, is the fact
that less sleep is needed. The eskimos
sleep only four or five hours in 24,
and seem extremely healthy.
The "Arctic waste" myth, he found,
is without foundation, as it is possible
to pick as many as 50 different kinds.
of flowers. The temperature was be-
tween 32 and 45 degrees between Aug.
2 and Aug. 21 These figures are
based on maximum and minimum
temperatures for each day, taken on
the shaded shore, "so they prove that
it is not as cold there as most people
believe," Dr. Koelz said.
While the planes were carrying on
their attempts for the Navy, Dr.
Koelz made two trips to Refuge Har-
bor, 40 miles north of Etar. The
journeys were made in a small dory,
the. leaders of the expedition allowing
Dr. Koelz enough' gasoline for a one
way trip. He had to row on the way
northward. Three white people and
two Eskimos accompanied him the
first time. Kennett Rawson, son of a
Chicago banker, who shipped as a
cabin boy, went with Dr. Koelz on
his second trip to Refuge Harbor, as
well as two eskimos who were on
their wcy to a settlement farther

Study Bird Life
The trips were made primari-
for th., purpose of obtaining peci-
mens of the Greenland Redpoll, a
bird which is rarely captured in the
plumage which Dr. Koelz was seeking.
I1« succeeded in getting specimens
vhich are considered excellent.
Yr. Koelz was invited to go on the,
epedition to investigate fish, but as
t!Les' were scarce, he spent a large
part of his time with birds and plants.
lHc obtained, more than 500 birds,
more than 1,000 fish, 1,000 plants, liv-
hig and dead, and a fairly complete
.nthropological collection, including
c l.thing, playthings, and even musical
instruments. The latter were obtain-
ed from the eskimos by barter, neck-
laces, fishhooks, and tobacco being the
chief desires of the eskimos. Mem-
bers of the expedition bought a stock

0 offer the first greetings to the Wol-
Brine squad.
The squad was taken at once to the
:tel Loraine, which will serve as
ts headquarters for the week-end,
nd at 2:40 o'clock the players were
aken to Camp Randall field for a
ght workout.
Hold Short Drill
A cold, brisk wind greeted the men

assing, punting, and a short signal
rill constituted the workout.
Light rain fell intermittently dur-

Badger uniform, led his squad on to
he field for its final practice before
he game at the close of the work-
)ut of the Wolverines.
Despite the fact that the Wisconsin
eleven has already played two games,
Coach Little is undecided as to what
players will fill several of the posi-
ions. Captain Polaski is certain to
play one end, with Burrus at the
other, and Cameron in reserve. Nel-
son and Straubel, veterans, will play
the tackles, while Larson, Kasiska and
Vonbremer will handle the guard po-
sitions. Larson was varsity quarter-
back last year, but has taken on con-
siderable weight during the summer,
now tipping the scales at 190 pounds,
so that Coach Little has shifted him
to the line.
Lineup In -Doubt_
Wilson and Wilke have been fight-
ing for the center position, and both
are still on an even basis. Both are
certain of seeing service tomorrow.
Crwfoot, a sophomore will start at
quarter, with Doyle Harmon, and
either Leo Harmon or MAnrews at
the halves. Radke and Kruz, the lat-
ter a brother of the Pennsylvania star,
are both prepared to receive the full-
back call.
Wisconsin's greatest homecoming
