Though a purely scientific expedi-
tion, and a very successful one at
that, the trip itself provided 'many
experiences to reminisce about-20-
foot waves which challenged the
strength and skill of the scientists as
they ran the successive rapids in small
boats, scenery whose -beauty of color
and outline was etched in the minds
of those who saw it, whimsical mem-
ories of sand in cold cream jars and
pancake flour, supposedly sugar, in a
batch of penoche candy--these were
the things Dr. Clover and Miss Jot-
Dangerous Rapids No Barriers
True to the best scientific tradition,
the group was carefully prepared for
the dangers and hardships which lay
before them. The trip was meticulous-
ly studied, the carefully balanced
menu planned in advance, and food
was packed in grain sacks with pro-
visions for two days in each sack.
Cameras and a plant press formed
the bulk of their equipment in ad-
dition to regular camping necessities.
A major portion of the danger lay
in running the rapids which were met
almost every day. Before attempting
to make the run the travelers always
stopped to study the situation, and
Dr. Clover described-one experience
when it was decided to send the boats
through with as few men as possible,
the others going over-land. "Over-
land" in this case meant up a high
cliff and across on a narrow ledge
which. sloped down toward the sheer
side of the cliff to rock and the river
Food Insufficient For Delay
Health was at a premium in a
situation where disability would mean
a trip of 40 impossible miles for a
rescue crew. Those 40 miles separat-
ing the river from the road where
miles of mountains divided by gorges
though not impossible.
Since it was necessary to economize
on space and weight the food carried
' was adequate, but no :lowances were
made fr delays. For this reason bo-
tanical specimens were collected at
the camping spots, and when stops
were made for lunches, butthere were
no extended delays for that purpose.
Perfect Health Emphasized
The only minor casualty of the trip
occurred when one of the boats turned
over. No one was hurt, nor the food
damaged except for a box of Grape-
Nuts, which were spread out to dry.
For a few days the members of the
expedition ate Grape-Nuts in little
The drinking water was obtained
from the river itself. and when there
was time the water was permitted to
stand in order to let the silt settle to
In closing the interview Dr. Clover
emphasized the major importance of
perfect health in undertaking such a
trip, and added, "We must also have
the quality of being able to face the
next wave with a shrug, and not let
it bother you."
