circumnavigate Baffin Land and pen

in length, said to be the longest stretch
of unknown coast line in the world.
He is a frequent visitor here and
keeps careful watch over the con
struction of his ship.
Knockabout Fishing Type.
The Bowdoin, which is being built
on the sturdy lines needed in an ex
ploration vessel to withstand the ice
grind, is a knockabout fishing schooner
type. It will be 88 feet in length, over
all, 20 feet wide and equipped with 45
horsepower oil burning engines. Three
inch oak plank material is being used
for the hull.
Before his departure for the far
north Dr. MacMillan will *nake an ex
hibition cruise along the coast during
May and June. About July 1, with a
party of six men, this explorer will
sail from Boston for the Polar region.
Under favorable weather conditions
the Bowdoin should reach Fury and
Hecla Strait early in September. There
the ship will be frozen in.
Leaving their vessel uader a lone
guard the party will push forward on
a 200 mile trip on sleds drawn by dogs.
Five eskimo dog drivers will accom
pany the MacMillian outfit across the
rugged, ice bound country which
abounds in perils. Establishing _ of a
camp 700 miles south of Etah in the
northwestern part of Greenland, is one
of the main objectives.
Within the last 12 years, Dr. Mac
Millian has made six trips into the
land of the midnight sun. Most famous
of these was his expedition by which
he disproved the theory that a Crokpr
land existed in the extreme north. At
that time he discovered nine new is

reindeer have promise of becoming a
factor in the meat supply of this conn
try as they are in Scandinavia, where
reindeer meat last year sold at a high
er price than beef or mutton.
The government is going to aid In
putting the infant industry of Alaska
on its feet by experiments in increas
ing the reindeer's weight to about
double its present average, scientifi
cally breeding them, locating ranges
and scientifically studying their di
sease. papasitea and grazing problems
Provision is made in the agricultural
appropriation bill of this year for that
Dr. E. W. Nelson, chief of the bio
logical survey, in urging the appropria,
tion told congress there are about 200,
000 reindeer in Alaska, of which about
three-fourths belong to the natives and
about one-fourth to the government
and to white owners who have started
a commercial industry in reindeer
growing for meat. These reindeer mul
tiplied from an original importation of
1,280 animals made 28 years ago, for
the benefit of the Eskimos.
"People have asked me what the fu
tune of the industry is likely to be,"
said Dr. Nelson. I have replied by
asking them the question: 'If 1.230
reindeer in 28 years produced the
present 200,000 animals, what is likely
to be the increase from 200,000 ani
mals in the next 28 years? The in
crease is almost unbelievable. In
other words, the industry, properly
handled, should have a great future.
1600 Deer Shipped.
"The Alaskan firm which has start
ed the industry exported 1600 head to
Seattle last year. They have estab
lished four small cold storage plants
at points on the Alaskan coast, where
the reindeer can readily be driven down
for slaughter to be refrigerated and
loaded for shipment. I have recently
been studying the possibilities of the
Alaskan reindeer industry when well
developed. I believe Alaska contains
available range to maintain from four
to five million reindeer. The estimate
has been made that it would take care
of 10,000,000, but I think that is too

Hybred Stock Plaa.
"There'are big herds of wild caribou
about the Mount McKinley region,
some bulls of which dress up to about
400 pounds. We plan to capture some
bulls of this stock and usé them with
an experimental herd of reindeer cows
for the purpose of building up a
higher grade of reindeer, having great
er weight and increased hardiness. I
believe it will be practicable in leas
than ten years to have the reindeer of
Alaska running from 250 to 300 pounds
to the carcass, instead of 150 pounds
as at present. The increased weight
would incresse the value of the fully
developed Alaska reindeer industry
enough to bring the potential output
around $60,000,000 at present values.

here recently. He is interested in the
lease granted by the Canadian govern
ment for a great area for reindeer
grasing in Baffin's Bay region. He
informed me that in the Scandinavian
countries of Europe abont 200,000
reindeer are killed for meat each year.
"We are talking abont helping to
build up Alaska, and here ia one thing
that is right in sight today, a fine,
big industry for Alaska, and I do not
know of any other like it in the imme
diate future. The future looks so
promising that the expenditure we
contemplate is trifling compared with
what the outcome is likely to be."
