' But in previous' explor ations mirages; soundings and ti dal conditions have beien the only encouragement that something other than ice exists Jin that re gion. " .' Admiral Peary on his polar trip stood ut one far northern point and saw what he-believed to be land some 50 miles laway. He called it "Crocker Land." Com mander MacMillan onj his special Crocker Land expedition, - wiped this spot off his mapsj because af ter traveling 150 mlies across a field of solid ice to a point well beyond where "Crocke!": Land" was supposed; to exiHt, Itjwaa as far away as when he startled. ; MacMillan returnedjto the point from wheie Peary had sighted this supposed land and he too beheld this imaginary country rugged hills and wooded stretches. It ap peared to be a permanent mirage. MacMillan took a number of sound ingg in the territory, jhoweer, and the current indicated jtnere mignt be land. ' Tidal obserktions taken at- Etah anad Cape Hubbard, checked with those taken at Point Barrow, Alaska, showed also that the tide at Point Barrow ariied four or fie hours late.

MacMilan described it at that distance as resembling group of city buildings Which had been squeezed by huge' hands and jammed together.
