Arctic -Invaders
H1AVE 'PRIVATE BACKING
By Jo n T. Lewing. Jr.
WASH.INGTON, 'Feb. 2.- With at
least 'four expeditions preparing in the
Vnited States for aerial assaults on'
the unconquered Arctic, and three or
four others being organized by advent-
urous European spirits, it looks like
the polar. regions xwil be f avorite
summer resort .this year.
Perhaps tie most ambitious of the
expeditions is that being sponsored
byat the .AJnerican Geographical society
and the fDetroit Aviation society, under
thedleadership of Cat. Geoge Hf. Wil-'
kins, Australian explorer and aviator.:.
An expedition financed by Iarrisoii
Wjllais, and George Palmer Putnam,
to gather +specimens for the. American ,
Museum of Natural History.xwil have
Capt.' Robert Bartlett as leader, and!
Robert'E. Peary, son of the man cred-
ited with discovering the North Pole,
will be in the, party. Capt.,Bartlett ac-
comipanied Peary on some of his trigs
'to the Arctic.
Lt. Leigh Wade. one of the world
fliers, will lead a third. group of ad-
venturers.
The fourth expedition definitely an-!
nounced is that which wil be con-
m nded by Lt. Cor. Ricard.E. Byrd,
i7.S. N.
Meanwhile there is being overhaul-
ed a dirigible in which Roald Amund- L
seni, Norwegian explorer, now in the
United States, hopies to be able to fly
to the Pole over the course on which E
he was nearly lost in attempting -a i
plane flight last year.
y Although none of the leaders will
-admit' the possibility, it is pobable
that the invasion of the Arctic by anr
,wil develop into a race for what ever
honors are- attached to being the fisti
no ail a fag to the North Pole..
Lieutenant Wade is preparing to re-
sign from the army air service in
order to give all his time to prepar-
bions for the venture. His buddy on
the world flight, Lt. H. H. Ogden, will
act as his assistant on the polar dash.
In personnel, eqipmet and fianc-}
ing, the. expedition will be all Ameri-
an. It is backed by prominent alumni
of Harvard, Yale, Princeton and the1
University of Pennsylvania and will be3
known as the American university's;~
alumni expedition.
The expedition is negotiating for a
steaiYner to transport its equipment to
PI't Arrow, Alaska, which is to be-
the base also of the Wilkins expedi-
tion. organized for the same lpurpose.'
Lieutenant Commander Byrd is con-1
vinced by hisrexperience as coiman-I
Ater of the navy section ot te MVacMil-
lan expedition, last summer that ex-'
ploration of the Arctic by aircraft is
practiAl
Officially, the navy is not to be co-
_nected with the expedition which is to'
be financed with the aid of proninent
Americans, amongAvlom arc John D
Rockefeller, Jur.,.Vincent Astor and d-j
sil Ford.l
At the same time, although its o-
jest .will be somewhat si~ilar, it willj
not operate in competiti~n with the
other expeditions.
Although the navy will not oficially,
be connected with the expedition it
miay" furnish some engines for the air-'
crafts.
Commander Byrd expects to have
four aviators with the expedition as I
well as what ship and groundl crews
are necessary. It is his hope that the
navy will permit Floyd Bennett avia
Lion -pilot, of Waterbury, Vt.. to ac-
company himt as he did on the M1a(-
Millan expedition. Bennett has ben;
in aviation work since he enlisted( in
1917.

The response of ambitious students
to the Coffer of this company goes far
to disprove the recent asserions . t
educational experts that the mnotive
which draws young men to college is
the love of luxury antd spores. Agents'
