10 SOUTH POLE
NKW YOUK, June 3. Hear Ad
miral Itobcrt B. Peary, Arctic ex
plorer who reached tho North Polo on
his last trip to tho frozen north, In
a communication sent hero irom nis
home In South Harpswcll, Maine,
suggests that Captain Robert Bart
lutt be sent -to the Antarctic at the
head of an American expedition.
Peary's statement was prompted
by the news that Ilartlctt, after his
ship, tho Karluk, had been crushed
in the ice, led his people to zafoty
on Wrangel! Island, and then made
n long and trying Journey to obtain
relief for them,
"When he has brought his peoplo
back to civilization," says Admiral
Peary, "it would bo a flno thing if
this country through Its scientific
organizations would purchase the
Hooscvclt which can bo done for one
fifth of her cost, fit out an American
Antarctic expedition to enlarge tho
field of geographic knowledge, en
rich our mtiKcums and give our scien
tists valuablo material and put
Ilartlctt In command."
