NEW NAVAL CAPTAIN:
Bond Takes Over Helm for McKean

* *

An amiable gentleman of the'
sea, Capt. C. A. Bond, USN, has
taken over the helm of the Naval
ROTC program this year as pro-
fessor of Naval Science and chair-
man of the department of Naval
1Science.
Capt. Bond has succeeded Col.
William B. McKean, USMC, who
is now at the Marine Corps Re-
cruiting Depot, Paris Island, S.C.

.BRINGING to the University
his wife and three daughters, Capt.
Bond was previously stationed at
Alameda, Calif., where he was
commander of the Navy's airline
of the Pacific, in charge of flying
supplies to Japan, Korea, the
Philippines and Alaska.
A Navy man for 28 years,
Capt. Bond graduated from
Annapolis in 1925. He is a robust
skipper and has served on ev-
ery continent as well as on the
seven[ seas--even including a
trip to the Antarctic with Ad-
miral Byrd in 1946-47.
Of his many experiences in the
Navy which include such feats as
flying scout and observation sea-
planes and skippering the aircraft
carrier USS Bouganville during
STUDENT LAMPS

115 W. Liberty-Near Main

the Okinawa-Iwo Jima campaign
in World War II which brought
him the bronze star, Capt. Bond
recalls as his most exciting adven-
ture his trip with Admiral Byrd
on the second Antarctic expedi-
tion.
"THE ANTARCTIC is one enor-
mous glacier spreading out in all
directions," Capt. Bond recalls of
the ice continent.
"It was our job on this expe-
dition to photograph the coast-
line and the interior of Antarc-
tica from the Bellena Isles two-
fifths of the way up the Antarc-
tic coast, much of which had
never before been seen by man.
It was the greatest geographic
exploration in the world's his-
tory," Capt. Bond added.
"We were in the Antarctic dur-
ing its summer months, leaving
in December 1946 and returning
in April 1947.
IN MAPPING out the geography
of the Antarctic the men would
fly observation and scout planes
up and down the coastline and
into the interior, sometimes find-
ing it necessary to use a radar al-
timiter and pressure devices to
find where the ice covered coast-
line began and the sea ended.
During one of these observa-
tion missions a 900 square mile
tract of barren land was found
resembling an oasis in the mid-
dle of a glacial desert, Capt.
Bond recalled. The interesting
partabout this tract, he said,
was that although It would not
support vegation or other life it
was spotted with brilliantly col-
ored lakes, chocolate, green and
blue.
The square jawed skipper who
says he loves to play golf, likes
good music, and enjoys dabbling
in various languages says that he
just got a lucky break in being
able to accompany Admiral Byrd
on his history making expedition.
