The Lions club is to be congrat
ulated for bringing Captain Roald
Amundsen to Salem. Amundsen
is not only a famous explorer but
he is also probably the greatest
living sailor, the last of a long
line of windjammer captains and
a genuine master of the craft of

the tremendous potential advant

attention of all Europe for three
centuries to! the western hemi

yet to bulk as romantically as
Hudson or Frobisher, but the years
will make hiin secure to the -forefront
of explorers and captains of
all time. His North and South
Pole exploits and his discovery of
the Northwest Passage will stand
as definite milestones in the his
tory of international transporta
tion. He is the greatest livinge
adventurer. Not one of us who
have followed the sea are fit, to
black his shoes.
He has taken ships to monstrous
places, in uncharted and mysteri
ous seas. And he has come back,
brought his ships home. Anyone
who knows the difficulties and
dangers of even ordinary naviga
tion will understand and appreci
ate that. His visit to Salem will
be memorable. He stands- in a
halo of terrific achievement. Great
explorer and scientist as he is', I
salute him chiefly as a sailor. It
is not given to every man to walk
in the footsteps of the illustrious
of his own profession and outshine

initiated by the Telephone Com

"Twenty years ago. when mov

tion of the Vitaphone may have
great value in this connection.
"If television ever becomes uni
