saying good-by to civilization awuy up
on the coast of Labrador. And what
does the veteran explorer expect to
tlndV Probably he himself doesn't
know. But P.nflln Land offers that
Mningeht of lures tho luro of tho
unknown. And if MncMillan reaches
Its Interior or Its west coast and gels back to tell
the tale, two or three years from now we may he
hearing something new and seeing It, for be In

and his schooner, the Iiouuoln, are off for Italllu
The truth is that Batlln Lnnd Is an undiscov
ered country. It was "discovered" away back In
tbo Seventeenth- century (1581-1022) by William
Bailln that is, that hardy English explorer dis
covered and charted Batlln bay, which lies be
tween Greenland and Balllu Land. Ko he neces
sarily discovered the east coast of Bailln Land. ,
But no man has ever sailed around Balllu Land.
And no white man has ever penetrated to Its In
terior. MncMillan therefore does not know what's
allead of him. But the Eskimo who live on the
big island have told him wondrous tales of tower
ing mountains with great glaciers; vast lakes;
birds new to science and of great size; beautiful
(lowers; herds of reindeer. Tho Island, It Is es
timated, Is about 1,XH miles from north to south
from Lancaster sound to the Gulf of Boothia. It
Is anywhere from 200 to fiOO miles wide east to
West. Its east const line Is mi Ice-capped plateau
with an altitude of from 5,000 to 8,000 feet. Tho
Interior Is supposed to he largely of rock, covered
with Ice. The western coast, vaguely Indlcatett
on the maps, Is drawn from statements made by
This western coast, according to stories told
MncMillan by Eskimo, Is Inhabited by people who
hnve never seen n white man. So, one of the re
sults of the expedition may be moving pictures of
a primitive people untouched by civilization.
MacMlllan thinks there Is coal, oil and mineral
wealth of various kinds on the Island. Then
there Is terrestrial magnetism to be .studied from
observations taken near the magnetic pole. Also
the uuroru borcnlis is to be photographed.
MacMlllan Is a veteran in Arctic exploration.
Ho was born in Provlncetown, Mass., In 1871, and
wus n '08 track and gridiron star at Bowiloln.
In early life he taught the young Idea how to
shoot. He was In the Peary Arctic Club North
Polar Expedition of I'.XIS-OO; frozen feet put lilin
out of consideration for Peary's final dash to the
pole, lie was a member of the Calnl Labrador
party in 1010 and did ethnological work among
the Eskimo of Labrador In 1011 and 1012. He
headed the Crocker Laifd exploring expedition In
1013. After four years during which time two re
lief parties were dispatched In search of hhn and
a third was formed, word chum through that the

for n relief expedition. If tho Bowdoln Is crushed
In the Ire, the party will retreat by sledge to Fort
Churchill, the trading post at tho foot of Hudson
bay, and return to civilization by way of North
MacMlllan has carefully solected his compan
ions. The members of the expedition, In most
Instances, ho has knowiTfor years nnd several of
them hnve been his shipmates on previous voy
ages. His mute Is Jonathan Small ("Jot") of
Provlncetown, Mass., who wns with him for four
years on the Crocker Land expedition and whom
tho explorer describes ns "througlwuubthrough
sailor, and tho best story teller I over met." An
other former shipmate Is Thomas McCue of Brl
gus, Newfoundland, lho cook', who was with tho
explorer on u trip through Hudson laiy Inst year.
Harold Whltohouse of Boothlmy harbor, another
experienced snllor, Is engineer.
Itulph P. Itohlnson of llaverlrlll, Maas., will bo
the explorer's general assistant during tho expe
dition. Ho was a pui.il of Uoctor MacMlllan at
Worcester academy rind later was assocluted
with him us director of summer cumps In
.Maine. He served in France during tho war
us a lieutenant of Infantry, and since ids return
hud been physical director in the Haverhill pub
lic schools until he gave his resignation In Juno
to Join the expedition.
Dawson Howell of Boston represents tho Cur
iickIo Institute on the expedition as magnetic ob
server and will also serve as radio operator. Ho
is the son of a Pittsburgh lawyer und is a former
Trinity college football captain. Itlchard II. God
dard of Wlnthrop, a member of this yenr'u grad
uating class at Dartmouth, where he was promi
nent in athletics, will liu Howell's assistant.
The Bowdoln Is small Just about the slzo of
the Discovery, Baflln's ship which, In 1010 wus
the first to reach Batlln bay. But she has been
specially constructed for tho expedition, and Is
legarded as tpiite up-to-date for Ice work. Sho
Is b'O feet 10 Inches in length, of 115 tons dis
placement, 10 feet 7 Inches beam and 0 feet 0
Inches depth. Site is of the knockabout auxiliary
typo, equipped with a -15-horse power crude oil
burning engine that will drive her eight and a
half knots an hour. Tests of the engine with va
rious kinds of fuel havo convinced MacMlllan that
oil obtained from the Arctic whole can be utilized.
Though she had on hoard 2.S00 gallons of fuel,
the sails will be used as much ns possible, and
the motor he saved for emergencies among tho
The Bowdoln's egg-shaped hull offers nothing
to which Ice may cling. Under sufficient pressure
from Ice floes, Instead of being crushed, tho Bow
doln should be lifted out and bo carried with
the pack. Her construction Is very strong. The
frame of the hull Is planked with Si-Inch white
oak, to which lias been added ut the water lino
n 5-foot belt of greenhenrt or Ironwood. Tills
armor Is said to be capable of withstanding tho
grinding action of Ice bettor than steel or any
other material. Twelve tons of cement ballast
has been so placed ns to eliminate any danger of
Ice punchjng through engine room nnd tanks.
Her bow Is sheathed by heavy steel plates. She
earrles a spare rudder nnd propeller. It Is be
lieved that her slight draft of ',& feet will make
It possible to drydock her on a beach at low tide
so that repairs can be made.
The forecastle Is of great importance" to a ship's
company In Arctic temperatures. Tho Bowdoln's
Ik huge and has been laid out with special thought
for the comfort of the explorers, who will spend
much of their time there during the long winter
months. There Is it thick air space between tho
outer and Inner skins of tho hull for Insulation
against tho cold and moisture. When winter sets
in a :i-foot covering of ice nnd snow will bo placed
over the entire schooner, with snow houses, nfter
the fashion of Eskimo igloos, to cover tlie hatch
ways. For heating purposes the vessel Is equipped
with oil heaters and kerosene for them. Cooking
will bo done In a range with coal.
When tho Bowdoln left Wlscasset, Me., sho was,
hock-u-block with a wonderful conglomeration of
articles. Tlu explorers have ninny, friends, nnd
gifts of all kinds hud been showered upon them.
In that packed cargo, were tobacco and matches
sufllclent to last two years 2,800 gallons of oil,
14 tons of nut coal, enough to keep tho galley
range hot for two years, flour enough for it llko
period, 100 gallons of gasollno for lighting, 500
pounds of butter, 500 pounds or coffee, 1U cases
of tea, 100 pounds of lard, a barrel of molasses,
ten limns, four strips of bacon, six cases of corned
beef and corned beef hash, HO cuses of other
canned goods, 210 pounds of assorted Jellies and
Jams, bags of beans, cases of rnacnronl, cases of
cranberries, puddings, cheeses, cereal, dried fruits,
nuts and .candy, a case of flavoring extracts,
spices, dates and prunes, drugs, medicines and a
quantity of dehydrated vegetables onions, pota
toes, carrots, cabbages, cranberries, etc. from
which tho molsturo has been extracted and which
' will return to their natural state upon being
soaked In water. Somebody had given u number
of old automobile, tires, to bo lowered over tho
Bides as Ico buffers.
Tho Bowdoln carries u wireless telegraph out
fit. Sho has also a complete apparatus for her
scientific work. Two motion picture cameras and
four miles of 111m, with which Doctor MacMlllan
plans to record the events of the trip, as well us
the anlihnl und bird life, form an important part
of the expedition's equipment. The explorer also
expects to be able to uso the cameriiH, which aro
furnished with special high-speed "lenses, In mak
ing photographs of the aurora borealls, and ho
will attempt, through photographs taken at dif
ferent points, to measure the height of the north
And here's something clever. There's n motion
picture machine nnd several reels of film for tho
benefit of the natives. These reels Include films
which MacMlllan made on a previous trip to tho
North. So, when tho Eskimo see themselves pro
jected against the side of an Iceberg, they will bo
more likely to bellevo what the films show them
of the white man's country. And maybe they will
not consider MacMlllan a magician 1
Tho explorers carry 20 rifles and shotguns nnd
10,000 rounds of ammunition. These, of course,
uro for the securing of specimen animals and for
the killing of game. These firearms may also
save their lles, since If they have to desert tho
Bowdoln and mako their wuy to civilization on
foot, they will have to livo olT tho country. This
can be done, ns Stefunson, Amundsen nnd others
havo proved to the world. Sir John Franklin's
two crews perished to a man on such a retreat to
the North after an attempt to conquer tho North
west passage. Tim men wen; brave, hut appar
ently Inadaptable. They perished In the midst
Of course the MacMlllan party havo no expec
tations of footing it home across the Ice. They
hope to navigate tho Bowdoln clear around Bailln
"One hundred years ago Parry left Englnnd on
tbo Fury and the Hecla to negotiate a Northwest
passage," said MacMlllan. "Ho went Into Hudson
buy south of Southampton Island and followed tho
mainland of Canada northward till ho readied
Fury and Hecla straits. Here ho. stayed tw?
years nnd found ho was balked by Ico and a
strong, rapid southward current. As fast as ho
sailed up ho was driven back and ho became dis
couraged and quit. Never since has a ship at
tempted this trip. That's why I had thu llttlo
schooner Bowdoln built. Experience hns shown
that the small, hardy craft with a smnll crew
works better than a Marge vessel anil an exten
sive expedition. The Bowdoln's 45-horscpower
oil engine should give us a cruising radius of near
ly 4,000 relies Just with tli fuel In our tanks, to
say nothing of whale oil. Wo also can depend
on our sails. I sco no reason why we can't get
home nil right."
Incidentally, ns may be Imagined, Wlscasset
had the time of Its wholo existence In the de
parture of the Bowdoln. The event brought nn
Influx of visitors such ns tho town has never seen
before. The entire local population, together
with summer residents from surrounding resorts,
nnd relatives and friends of tho crow, thronged
the whnrves along tho water front.
Mingled with their cheers was tho .screech of
whistles on harbor craft, the bellow of the flro
siren and tho peal of eliureh bells. Tho harbor
was dotted with launches, dories und other pleua
To this spontaneous demonstration on the part
of tho populace was added tho oillclal valedictory
of tho state, pronounced by Gov. Perclvnl P. Bax
ter, a personal friend of tho explorer, Just before
tho schooner left lho dock.
Under her full speed of eight and a hnlf knots
nn hour, tho schooner, for tho benefit of tho spec
tators, made n complete circle around tho harbor
before heading down Sheopscot buy. Tho crowd
remained on tho docks and watched her until sho
passed Davis island and finally disappeared around
