Hildebrand Discovers Alaska
Unlike Geogram'ty Book Storyl

CLASSIFIED DIRECTORY

By DOROTHY GIES
"Alaska isn't all a land of ice and
snow, and Alaskans don't' live in ice
igloos; in fact, the country and the
people do not at all resemble the geo-
graphy book versions," Willard
Hildebrand, '35 F&C, said recently,
relating his experience in Alaska last
summer.
He and Ben Laboree, Grad., ac-
companied Dr. Dow V. Baxter of the
forestery department on an expedi-
tion to the northern peninsula, their
purpose being to compare the fungus
flora of northern North America with
that of northern Europe. They cov-
ered the coast from Ketchikan to
Seward, and circled into the interior
forests by way of Fairbanks, (which
is 100 miles from the Arctic Circle).
Mt. McKinley National Park, the
Kenai Peninsula, and back again to
the coast at Seward.
Americans Are Hospitable
"The Americans in Alaska are'
the most hospitable people in the
world, many of them having been
shut off in the wilderness for many,
years. We appreciated their kindness
after we had been camping in the
wilds, living without fresh meat or
fruit for several weeks," according to
Hildebrand.
Dr. Dow and the two young men
had to carry food and equipment for.
the whole summer in their back
packs, weighing generally about 70,
pounds. Their provisions consisted
entirely of liverwurst - pea soup in
powder form -bouillon, dried beans,
dried fruit, pancake, and biscuit
flour.
Tramping many miles a day
through wilderness trails, the men
had an unrivalled opportunity to ob-
serve the wild life of the north. They
saw scores of mountain sheep and
thousands of caribou - Alaskan rein-
deer. Once from a distance, they
watched a herd so large the whole
mountain side seemed to be moving.,
Salmon Crowd Rivers
Alaskan rivers are full of salmon
during the spawning season. Some-
times the fish are so numerous, those
on top will be pushed half out of the
water. Then the brown bears come
down out of the hills to fish. They
merely thrust in a paw, heave sev-
eral fish onto the bank, take one bite
of the choice middle back of each fish,
and leave the rest for the birds.
Hildebrand came upon a black bear
one day engaged in making a catch.
The big beast, interrupted, merely
of Angell Hall at 3 p. m. We would
appreciate reservations in advance.
Phone 5745. Bring 15c to cover ex-
penses. All graduate students are
welcome.
Badminton: There will be a meet-
ing for all women students interested
in Badminton in the lounge of the
Women's Athletic Building on Satur-
day, November 11, at 11:15. There
will be an election of interclass man-
agers.

turned and lumbered away as fast as
he could.
In Ketchekan, where the trio made'
their first base camp, it rains day and
night all year 'round. The wooden
streets and wooden sidewalks are
constantly soaked. Being wet was
one of the inconveniences to which
the men had to become accustomed.
Since there are practically no bridges
or roads in Alaska, the men had to
wade through the streams they met
in their tramps. The streams are
ice-cold, being fed by glaciers. Two
or three hours every night had to be
devoted to drying, or rather baking,
their clothes over the camp-fire.
Tell Of "Sourdough"
On the boat they once met an old
"sourdough," which is the nickname
for an old-timer in Alaska. He had
come up to the Klondike region in
the gold rush of '98, and now, all the
money he had ever made gone, he
was bound for the Old Men's Home
in Sitka. He told them of the gold
rush days, and about the supersti-
tious Eskimos of northern Alaska.
When a man dies, these Eskimos
place a tree on the ground with its
roots to the sky, and lay the body
thereupon. The ravens then come
and feed on it. They are to the
Eskimos a sacred bird, for they be-
lieve the birds are invested with the
spirits of their ancestors.
Jug Is Still Gone;
Stump Speakers To
PledgeWednesday
Maintaining an imperturbable up-
per lip in spite of the fact that their
precious tung oil jug is still in the
hands of some thief or thieves, more
than 50 members of the Stump
Speakers Society assembled last night
in the Union to review the names of
applicants for memberships, and con-
duct routine business.
On the basis of last night's review
there will be selected from the list
of applicants those who will be
pledged next Wednesday night.
To aid in the search for the club's
prized trophy, president Robert
Woodhams was empowered by a spe-
cial vote to advertise for the lost
tung oil jug.
Because of a reversal of the order
of the program, the legislative as-
sembly, in which a contest with the
radical socialist element was antici-
pated, was not developed beyond the
discussion stage.
SPEAKS ON GERMAN SCHOOLS
Prof. William C. Trow of the
School of Education lectured on
"Schools in Germany" at the first
meeting of the Travel Club of Uni-
versity High School recently. He il-
lustrated his talk with moving pic-
tures taken during a recent trip to
Germany.
