HOBBSUATICLE OUTLIS
ADMIRAL PEARY' L U I F.E
(Continued from Page One)
geodetic survey. Later he entered the
navy and from 1884 to 1888 worked
as engineer for the Nicaraguan ship
canal.
Peary's polar work started in 1886
when he went to Greenland on rec-
onnaissance. His North Greenland
expedition, according to Professor
Hobbs, was largely successful due to
the use oftsuitable furtclothing which
enabled the men to travel wit#~ no
tent and no sleeping bags, the fur
clothing used "affording ample pro-
tection both day and night." This ex-
pedition showed the insularity of
Greenland. Peary made many other
expeditions during all of which hisl
splendid psysique was able to stand
the great hardships of intense cold
averaging most of the time more than
50 below zero. At one time his feet
were frozen so badly that he had to
have six toes amputate4.
Discusses Hazards
In describing the eighth and last
trip to the north, when Peary reach-
"d the pole, Professor Hobbs quoted
from one of Peary's letters:
"With the disappearance of Bartlett
I turned to the problem before me.
This was what I had worked for dur-
ing 23 years; for which I had lived
the simple life; for which I had con-
served all my energy on the upward,
trip; for which I had trained myself
as for a race. . , . . Underlying all
these calculations was the reegnition
of the ever present possibility of open
leads, and impassable \vater, and the
knowledge that a 24 hours' gale would
knock all my plans into a cocked hat,
and even put us into imminent peril."
When the Pole was reached on April
6,' 1909, after the wild dash in five.
marches with Henson and four Eski-
mos, Peary wrote in his diary:
"The Pale at east"
"'The pole at last! The prize of
three centuries, my dream and goal
for 20 years, mine a%, last! I cannot
bring myself to realize it.
"'It all seems too simple and com-
monplace
Professor Hobbs told how when the
party had successfully crossed the
"big lead', and were upon the land ice
without laving been touched by a
gale, "the Eskimos of the party went
wild with delight and relief, danced
and sang, and Otah exclaimed feeling-
ly, 'the devil is asleep or having
trouble with his wife, *or we never
should have got Pack so easily'."
When Peary had reached civiliza-
tion again, he was much dismayed by
learning that Dr. Frederick A. Cook

had claimed the discovery. of the pole
about a year in, advance of himself.
Then followed that great "Cook-Peary
controversy." Finally after Peary had
been so vindictively defamed by Cook.,
full credit for discovery of the North
Pole was given to the former.
In 1918, Peary was stricken with
pernicious anaemia which brought his
death Feb. 10, 1920.
"Greatest of All fXplorers"
Concluding, Professor Hobbs says of
Peary: "Thus passed from earth all
that was mortal of the man whom
Stefansson described jas 'easily the
greatest of all explorers, North or
South,' and one who was, loved for
his sterling personal qualities by all
who were privileged to know him' in-
timately. His qualities of leadership
have been referred to by Capt. R.
Bartlett, the commander of the "Roose-
1velt," and one who knew him as few
others: 'The admiral was a born
leader. .... In every emergency
during his trips he always thought of
the welfare of his men first and of
'himself last.. .I know of innum-
erable cases where he denied himself
necessities to supply his men'."
Nurse to See Federal Moard Students
Miss Norma Dack, social service
nurse, will be here today to see the
federal board students. Miss Dack
will be at Lane hall practically all
day.

Battle Creek, July 27.-The 500-bed
hospital for former service men suffer-
ing from mental disorders, will, in
all probability, occupy the site of
the former base hospital in the west-
ern part of the Camp Custer reserva-
tion. The elevation here is high, and
pverlooks Eagle lage. The base hos-
pital has been torn down and most of
the lumber removed. Advices here in-
dicate that construction work on the
new hospital will be started in the
fall.
The Roosevelt American Legion hos-
pital, a state institution for the care
of tubercular ex-service men, is locat-
ed east of Camp Custer, and some
three miles from the probable site of
the planned government institution.
The completion of its extensive addi-
tions will enable it to care for more
than 400 tuberculars.
LONGEST FLIGHT BY ARMY
BALLOON 1f SUCCESSFUL
Belleville, Ill., July 27.-The long-
est flight ever attempted by the army
lighter-than-air craft service was com-
pletfd today when the dirigible bal-
loon A-4 arrived at Scott field, near
here. The blimp arrived from Lang-
ley Field, Va., a .distance of approxi-
mately 1,100 miles in 40 hours and 40
minutes of actual flying time. Two
stops were made. The balloon will be
stationed,- here permanently, it was
said.
