CLIMBING MOUNT M'KINLEY

Meeataia Teak la Tterta
Dr. Frederick A. Cook, who wss Surreon
of tha Peary Arctic expedition of 11-W
and surgeon of the Belgian Antarctic ex
pedition of 18!7-. and Prof. Hersrhel C.
Parker of the department of physics of
Columbia university left New Tork City
May 7 to climb MoKlnley, Alaska (K.t4
feet), the highest mountain In North Amer
ica. In difficulty the enterprise transcends
the ascent of Aconcagua 2?,8u feetl, in
South America, which M. Zurbrlggen, he
Swiss guide, and Steaart Vines of Jlr.
Edward A. Fitzgerald's patty, accom
plished In 197; that is to say, the attempt
on McKiniey. though It may fall, is likely
to Involve the Intrepid climbers In greater
hardships than were encountered by ihe
victors of Aconcagua, Fitsgerald made u
campaign of several months against Acon
cagua, camping higher and higher In the
snows before a dash could be ventured for
the summit; every member of his party
suffered severely from exposure, and at an
elevation of M.000 feet Fitsgerald succum
bed to mountain sickness.
Aconcagua breaks the clouds In lati
tude 31 degrees, S3 minutes, 40 seconds, 8;
almose due-west of It 1 Valparaiso; -the
base of the mountain, therefore, is In the
temperate clime. McKiniey, in latitude
(3 degrees 4 minutes N., la very near the
Arctic circle. The snow line on the Alas
kan mountain comes down much lower
than on Aconcagua, Professor Parker es
timates, w. believe, that that there is 4.006
more feet of snow on McKiniey than on
Everest. So it follows that If a traversable
glacier can be fonnd on any slope of Mc
Kiniey there will be more Ice cutting for
the climbers than on any other mountain in
the world in all probability. Moreover, the
cold on the heights will be more Intense;
and Dr. Cook and Professor Parker will
have a season of only weeks. Instead of
months, to lay siege to the giant of tha
Extreme cold Dr. Cook has experi
enced In his invasions of the Arctic and
Antarctic, while Professor Parker has
taken hie degree as a mountaineer, hav
ing made first, ascents of Ooodslr, Daw
son, Piddle, Deltaform, Hungabee and
Lefoy in the Canadian Bockies, where the
axe and the rope are Indispensable. It
should therefore be, a happy combination
for th assault on McKiniey. Both have
penetrated Alaska before, and Dr. Cook
made an attempt to scale the mountain
from the west in 190S. when he found him
self confronted at an altitude, of
11,400 feet by a granite wall pitching down
sheer 8.000 feet. On his return Dr. Cook
said: "Arctic conditions begin almost at
tha base. Unlike Mount St. Ellas, the
glaclatton Is not extensive enough to
offer an all Ice route. The conqueror of
this immense uplift must pick his path
over broken stones. Icy barriers, sharp
cliffs and an average alnpe of 45 degrees
for at least 14.000 feet. it lsn under
taking which for difficulty and disap
pointments Is comparable to the task of
reaching the North Pole."
The presumption Is that the campaign
against McKiniey will be made from the
east this time. 4y the wayof the Shusbltna
river, which rises in the foothills and flows
Into Cook Inlet. With the use of a launch
or small steamer the party may begin their
march to tha base by the middle of June

months or more to find a practicable route,

It would be the grandest triumph In
mountaineering to stand on the supreme
ledge of McKiniey. although the altitude
Is almost t ,000 feet less than that of
Everest. In view of the prodigious ob
stacles that Dr. Cook and Professor Parker
must encounter. It Is too much to expect
that success will be achieved by them; but

CHILDREN'S PENNIES WASTED

More than seven years ago the school
children of fhe United States contributed
their pennies to a rund amounting to
1130.000 to erect an equestrian statue or the
marquis de Lafsyette in the court yard of
Ihe Louvre In Paris, the art center of the
