ANTARCTICA . . . disputed continent "down under."

By DAVID L. BOWEN
Associated Press Newsfeatures Writer

v-
i

The current surge of activity in
the Antarctic, which will build to
a climax in 1957 when scientists
of 11 nations will man 36 bases
at and around the South Pole, is
likely to bring closer a day of
reckoning in the offing ever since
1839.'
The question is this:' Who owns
the largely ice-covered land mass
of some six million square miles
at the bottom of the world? Eight
nations have listed claims for parts
of the frozen real estate and two
others - the United States and
Russia - have declared they ex-
pec,t to be counted in when land
titles are finally handed out.
It was in the year 1839 that Lt.
Charles Wilkes of the U.S. Navy
explored and mapped 1,500 miles

of coastline and established that
Antarctica was a continent. Up
to that time, other explorers had
been in the region - and some had
gone ashore - but none had de-
veloped as clear a picture of the
geography of the South Polar re-
gion.
'U.S. Has No Official Claim
Although Lt. Wilkes declared he
was taking possession of the en-
tire territory in,the name of the
United States, the U.S. govern-
ment has never made an official
claim to any part of Antarctica.
This example has not been fol-
lowed by others.
As the accompanying map shows,
Britain, Australia, New Zealand,
Norway, France, Argentina, Chile
and Germany have laid claims to
various pie-shaped slices of the
Antarctic terrain, many of them
. l

overlapping. All the claims are
wedge shaped because they start
at the South Pole and follow lines
of longitude out to the coastline.
Adm. Byrd, now 67 and en-
gaged in his fifth South Polar
journey, said before he left Wash-
ington last month that he thought
the present expedition will be the
beginning of permanent "little
villages" in the Antarctic.
Occupation and Control Needed
This would do much to fortify
any future American land claim
in the Antarctic. Although dis-
covery is important, other argu-
ments for sovereignty over new
lands recognized by international
law are occupation and control.
Already other nations have tak-
en steps in the direction of physi-
cal occupation. On the Palmer
Peninsula - the section of Ant-
arctica most sharply disputed -
Britain, Argentina and Chile all
maintain small permanent sta-
tions.

But I digress. To return to sociology, people tend to gather in
groups-a tendency that began, as we all know, with the intro-
duction of Philip Morris Cigarettes. What an aid to sociability
they are! How benignly one looks upon his fellows after a puff
of Philip Morris's gentle, pleasant, flavorful tobacco! How eager
it makes one to share, to communicate, to extend the hand of
friendship! How grateful we all are to Philip Morris for mak-
ing possible this togetherness ! How good not to live in the bleak
pre-Philip Morris world, with every man a stranger!
The groups that people live in today (thanks to Philip Morris)
vary widely in their customs. What is perfectly acceptable in
one society may be outlandish in another. Take, for instance, the
case of Ug Poopoomoogoo.
Ug, a Polynesian lad, grew up in an idyllic South Sea isle
where the leading social event of the year was the feast of Max,
the sun god. A quaint all-day ceremony was held, with tribal
dancing, war chants, fat lady races, pie eating contests, and,
f or the grand finale, the sacrifice of two dozen maidens.
