To Fly Over South Pole in Most Carefully Planned Trip in History
Byrd Sails From New York in His Antarctic Ship
Samson in Quest of Bleak Regions; Scientific
Study and Map-Making Objects of Trip.
The South Pole, which has been hitherto only twice attained, Is the
objective of Commander Richard E. Syrd in the most carefully planned
voyage of exlporation ever made.
Commander Byrd is departing from New York in his Antarctic ship,
the Samson, accompanied by fifty-five volunteers, among them such
heroes of the air as Bernt Ealchen, Thomas Mulroy and Harold L June.
Commander Byrd is taking three planes with him. He believes the
Antarctic can be conquered by the airplane just as the Arctic has been
conquered. He has also purchased
for the venture an iron freighter,
the Chelsea, which is in New Zea
land. The Chelsea will be used
mainly to transport the supplies.
After leaving New Zealand Byrd
will establish a base on the Ross
Ice Barrier, about 1,000 miles from
the pole. A self-supporting settle
ment will be established here and
the Samson wfll be sent back to
New Zealand to prevent the loss of
her by crushing in the ice. Byrd
will establish bases from the Bar
rier to the Pole, 100 miles apart, to
be used in case of emergency.
When the bases have been laid,
Byrd will fly toward the Pole in his
tri-motored monoplane named after
The South Pole in on a plateau
about two miles high, which makes
it very difficult for an aviator as
the air is very rare, and the landing
speed must therefore be very great.
Thus, special care must be taken to
preserve the landing skiis of the
plane, the demolishment of which
would make it difficult, if not im
possible, for the flying party to re
turn to the base.
The trip will also be devoted to
scientific study, with, a special map
ping camera used to chart the re
That Boardman club work will
make a showing equal to that of
other communities next month
when the projects are closed and the
year's work exhibited at the North
Morrow County fair is evidenced by
the interest .shown in the garden
club. This is under the supervis
ion of Mrs. E. T. Messenger and
meetings have been held each
month. The July meeting was held
at the home of Allan Chaffee, one
of the members and at the close of
the meeting Mrs. Chaffee served ice
cream and wafers. The August
meeting which will be the last of
the season, will be a vegetable pic-1
nic and will be held at the Messen
ger home. The members of the
families of those belonging to the
garden club are invited to the pic
nic and it is expected that County
Agent C. W. Smith will be present
Exhibits for the fair will be planned

Mrs. Doyle Hubbell and baby
daughter came home Saturday from
Greenfield Grange had an inter
esting meeting Saturday night F.
R. Wilbur of the Hermiston exper
iment station, gave a very interest
ing talk on Curly Leaf Blight and
Melon Blight In explaining the
former, Mr. Wilbur stated that since
the blight occurred during the hot
dry winds that farmers had fre
quently attributed this as a cause
of the disease but it was found by
careful study that this blight is
caused by a tiny insect which eats
into the plants and that plants
which are growing in the shade are
not effected. Tomatoes, squash, and
other plants are susceptible to this
insect. Rotation of crops, especial
care in selection of Beed is about
all that can be done as yet to avoid
the blight, although scientists are
working to develop plants which are
immune. The water melon blight Is
not the same as the curly leaf
blight, according to Mr. Wilbur's
report, it is not caused by voracious
insects but is a disease which nils
the stalk of the melon vine, depriv
ing the plant of its proper food. An
effort is being made to develop a
melon that will be immune but so
far this has not been done. The
soil becomes contaminated and- re
moval of the melon -patch to new
soil is essential, also care to have
the melons planted some distance
from other vegetables, such as
squash, pumpkins, fucumbers, etc.,
as they do cross pollenize. Seed
houses are required where their
melons are isolated at least half a
mile from other vining plants. Care
in seed selection of melons is very
essential for while a melon may be
especially delicious and seeds saved
one might, find the melon raised
from these seeds unfit for consump
tion. The attendance was not so
large as anticipated but all who
came were keenly interested Tn Mr.
Wilbur s talk. Lunch was Berved
at the close of the business session.
