New York. Sept 4. Preparations
already are on foot to maks the home-
ooming of Or. Frederick A. Cook an
event of national, and possibly inter
national importance. If plana outlined
today by members of ths Arctic club
are carried out, the welcome Dr. Cook
will receive in New York will be an
ovation to which city, state and nation
will take part, whils prominent sxplor-
ers Cook's former rivala from all
parte of the globe, will gather to pay
personal tribute to his achisvementa.
Members of ths Aretis club hopes
President Tart may be present. "Such
an honor would be no more than fit
ting," one declared, "in vfsw of the
fact that the explorer has placed the
Stars and Stripes on the apex of ths
world and sddes. perhaps 60,000 square
milss to the nation's territory."
Among the explorers who are ex
ported to take a prominent part are
the Duke d'Abrotxi, Dr. Nanssn, Cap
tain Ronald Amundsen, General A. W.
Greeley, Rear AdmiraT'George Mel

New York about the middle of Septem
