The submarine, "Nautilus," by means of which Sir Hubert Wilkins hopes
to make an undersea dash to North Pole. (Inset) Sir Hubert inspecting
the boat's kitchen.
THE expedition of Sir Hubert
Wilkins, the explorer, to the
North Pole will bo the most unusual
in the history of tho world an at
tempt to exploro tho polar regions by
means of a submarine.. His undersea
boat, christened the "Nautilus," after
Jules Verne's famous vessel of fiction,
will try to travel under the top of tho
earth and beneath the North Pole.
But Sir Hubert has arranged that
hi crew of twenty will have all mod
ern comforts possible. On the trip to
the coldest section of the world, the
submarine will be equipped with an
(Blectric refrigerator and his jpen will
have the advantages of sunlamps, as
well as electric fans, radio, electric
washing machines, vacuum cleaners,
electric stove and electric heaters.
The General Electric Company was
called in to install the refrigerator
and other appliances.
While the submarine will travel
under the ice, the temperature inside
tho boat will be such that foodstuffs
would spoil without an electric re
frigerator. Then, too, while the boat
will travel to the North Pole Land
of the Midnight Sun tho crew would
get little natural sunlight. That's the
reason for the sunlamps.
