pilot. The City of New York, whichl is bi'riging the ex pedition northward, is shown below.
The course to be taken by Admiiral Byrd's ship will be rather hazardous at the outset, although the ex-
pedition officers report that equipnment is on hand to meet any exigency. The naval expedition will sail
from "Little. America," the land at the South Pole discovered and named by Admiral Byrd, through open
water, and then into the great Antarctic ice pack. Up on successfully navigating this, the expedition will sail
r g o te to Dunedin, New Zealand. A temporary rest and restocking is planned at Dunedin be-1
