Watches Alaska,
Greatest Frontier
Outsider Finds Food
Is Dear and Climate
Mild—In Summer
(Sixth of a Series.)
Aviation Editor. The Star.
FAIRBANKS, Alaska (By Air
mail).—Troubled world conditions
have resulted in the focusing of
attention by American citizens
everywhere on the greatest remain
ing American frontier—Alaska. The
part Alaska and Alaskans may play
on the world stage, both in supply
ing strategic raw materials formerly
obtained from other sources but now
cut off by the war, and in estab
lishing a possibly vital new military
frontier, has made the Territory
and its people a source of growing
concern to all Americans.
And yet Alaska and its people are
really little known to a majority of
American citizens. What manner
of people are these Alaskans? How
do they live and what do they
Here are some of the impres
sions made on a raw outsider dur
ing a flying trip up the Alaskan
coast and “over the hump” into
the interior:
Alaska is divided primarily into
two parts—the coastal region, bathed
by the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf
of Alaska, and the "interior.” be
yond the great coastal range. To all
Alaskans the rest of the world Is
“outside” and non-Alaskans—even
fellow United States citizens—are
Climate Mild in Coastal Cities.
The Alaskan in the Interior re
gards himself as more a true
Alaskan than the dweller in the
coastal cities from Ketchikan and
Juneau on around to Cordova, Sew
ard and Anchorage. It is necessary
to cross the great mountains, as did
the gold rushers who battled over
Chilkoot and White Passes, to be
come a true initiate.
The climate in the Alaskan
toastal cities Is relatively mild
throughout the year. The tem
perature at Anchorage, on the aver
age, is about like that of Boston,
and a Juneau winter may be no
more uncomfortable than one in
Washington. The coastal summers
are a riot of flowers and luxuriant
vegetation. The rainfall is exceed
ingly heavy, averaging 150 inches a
year from Ketchikan to Juneau.
Fairbanks is the northernmost
community under the United States
flag. It is only 130 miles from the
Arctic Circle; Nome is 150 miles
south of the circle. Fairbanks has
continuous daylight during June.
Though the sun dips just below the
low mountain ranges to the south
for a short time at night, there is
full daylight at midnight. In mid
winter dawn comes at about 10 a.m.
and dusk by 3 p.m. The sun appears
for a couple of hours, but it is
very low.
At midnight on the longest day
of the year, about June 21, all the
available airplanes in Fairbanks are
pressed into service to take, the
leading citizens up to see the mid
night sun. A climb to 6,000 feet
brings Old Sol above the mountain
tops. This month 273 Falrbanksians
took part in the ceremony.
Aircraft Widely Used.
Aviation has been an inestimable
boon to the Alaskans. There are
more airplanes per capita in Alaska
than anywhere on earth, and no
aircraft anywhere are kept more
continuously in operation. There
is only one railroad in Alaska, from
Seward and Anchorage to Fair
banks, and virtually the only high
way system is composed of the Rich
ardson highway from Valdez to
Fairbanks and the Steese highway
from Fairbanks to Circle.
There are 43 miles of roads around
Juneau and 900 automobiles to keep
them busy. There is a 21-mile
road system around Ketchikan,
Alaska's southernmost community,
on Revillagigedo Island, and 500
automobiles are registered there.
Although tractor-drawn sledges
are used rather extensively in win
ter and though the Richardson high
way is kept open during a greater
part of the winter, which lasts from
October 1 until April, the dog sledge
still is ■ the important means of
ground travel in Alaska during the
winter. Alaskans take excellent care
of their dogs; they are housed in
well-made log cabins in the cold
months. During the summer they
are staked out in the open, usually
along the rivers, on which virtually
all Alaskan settlements are built.
The dogs are curious and are not
satisfied unless they can see what is
going or. When an airplane lands
at one of these outlying villages, on
the water or a sand bar or any
other primitive landing area, on
wheels during the summer months,
the dogs set up a tremendous chorus.
Then the'children appear, shouting
“airplane, airplane,” and their eld
ers soon follow. Even white visitors
usually catch the spirit.
Population Is 70,000.
There are about 70,000 residents
of Alaska, half of them white and
half Indians, Eskimos and half
breeds. The relationship between
whites and natives is about the
same as that between t*.ie white and
colored residents of the South. Na
tives attend the University o£ Alaska
with white students, but must com
pete in maintaining scholastic
standing. As a rule, the pure
blooded natives do not take kindly
to schooling. Theirs is a hard life
and they do not see the value of
“book learning.”
There is considerable agricultural
activity around Fairbanks. Despite
the brief summer, the temperature
often gets pretty high. Between 80
and 90 is not rare in June and July
and as high as 102 has been
recorded. The winter temperatures
drop to 50 and 60 below frequently
during the winter and have gone
below 70.
Vegetables grow amazingly fast
and, strangely enough, to abnormal
sizes. The largest cabbage grown
in Alaska, in a Fairbanks garden,
reached a weight of 42 pounds.
Potatoes are the chief crop. Vege
tables are tender, crisp and tasty.
Though there are increasing dairy
herds, the true Alaskan prefers con
densed milk for his coffee. It is
served in the best eating places
straight from the can.
Food Prices Are High.
Food prices, even at lunch coun
ters, are very high in Fairbanks.
These Alaskans are hearty eaters.
Servings are large and the quality
of food is always of the best. No
cheap meats are shipped in. Freight
Early Cafe Closing Is Nazis'
Most Onerous Rule to Paris
Populace Appears Too Thoroughly
Defeated to Protest Any Regulation
By the Assocl»ted Press.
PARIS, July 5 (via Berlin) .—Paris
has settled into the kind of life it
may live until a peace treaty is
Since war has washed through it,
this city is vastly changed from the
gay and brilliant center of world
pleasure which Americans knew
only a year ago.
Its buildings, cafes, parks and
monuments still are here, but two
thirds of its population is scattered
over France and the German troops
are in occupation.
The occupation has not been
harsh. The French municipal ad
ministration carries on with its own
police. Frenchmen who have to deal
with the authorities deal with
Frenchmen. What laws have been
laid down by the Germans are en
forced by the French. Neutral ob
servers have seen no French oppo
sition or disobedience.
The populace appears too thor
oughly defeated to think of anything
but acceptance.
The .police force has been divided
into three sections, each headed by
a German colonel.
German soldiers and officers may
be seen everywhere, taking a tour
ists’ interest in the city.
During the day, German planes
drone constantly overhead and de
tachments of German troops march
through the streets. In the little
cafes the German soldiers sing
Some of the German officers have
brought their families to Paris and
a cinema has been installed for the
army, showing German films.
French motion picture theaters
are open, but they have only old
French films.
For Parisians the most onerous
regulation is the closing of cafes at
9:30 p.m. and curfew at 10. Shortly
after 9 p.m. these fine summer
nights the boulevards are deserted.
The blackout system is still in force.
Despite heavy purchases of to
bacco, beer, liquor and chocolate
by Germans the Paris stocks remain
adequate. However, as refugees
pour back into the city the ques
tion of a food shortage is threaten
The food supply so far has been
hampered by lack of transport.
Restaurants with their own auto
mobiles can supply menus with
chicken and f^sh, but private homes
rates run as high as $50 on a single
beef carcass and it doesn't pay, the
Alaskan believes, to put that much
shipping cost into poor stuff. The
restaurants all have curtained
booths in addition to counters.
Relishes cost about 25 cents each;
an individual helping of celery is 35
cents plain, 50 cents stuffed. The
hors d'ouevers run about 75 cents,
even for sardines on a bit of toast.
Stuffed olives cost 35 cents. An
order of eggs and bacon runs about
75 cents. A steak dinner will run
from $3 up—more often up. Even
a simple breakfast will run to $1,
especially if it includes orange juice.
Waitresses invariably bring coffee,
without instructions, as soon as you
sit down for breakfast. There is
a can of condensed milk, with two
holes punched in the top, on each
table. There is a decent interval,
while you get the coffee going, be
fore your breakfast order is taken.

banks’ leading citizen—a resident of ■
the Interior for 45 years—tells a
story of a flock of hens he imported !
from “Outside” in the early days. |
The shipment, with a fabulous ship
ping charge, arrived in the summer.
Tire poor chickens waited in vain
for a night which never came.
"They stood around- on one leg
and then the other until they got
so tired they became dizzy,” the
75-year-old captain recalls. “One
eye would droop and then the other
I Then they would snap out of it and
pretend for a moment everything
was all right. But it wasn't all right
and they knew it. I thought they
would go crazy. I got some help
in a hurry; we threw together a
log chicken house and chinked it
with mud to keep out the light and
drove those poor, bewildered hens
in for a deserved rest.”
