Finn Ronnt North American Newspaper Alliance RONNE EXPEDITION BASE, Marguerite Bay, Antarctic, 8ept. M (Delayed).—Puppies are being born here like mad. A few weeks ago, Pansy, our smallest husky, gave birth to a happy brood of eight. Recently, another husky, Sad Eye, produced a litter of nine. Sad Eye now shows complete in difference to the welfare of her progeny so we have engaged Pansy, whoee pups are in the stumbling stage, to act as mother and sitter. Pansy wasn’t fooled for a min ute. She knew these new pupa weren’t hers and she accepted them reluctantly. But then she decided to play her role to the hilt. In the dead of night, with only the expe dition radio operator, Lawrence Kelsey, as a witness, Pansy carried Sad Bye’s squealing puppies, one after another, around the science building hunting for a hideaway. She finally selected a home under the double-decked floor where the temperature Is generally below zero. The following morning, when i nothing would Induce Pansy to bring her newly acquired family in to the open, Walter Smith, the ex pedition’s navigator, crawled be neath the floor and placed a blanket there for the protection of \he group. Pansy appears only at meal time and otherwise tends to her adopted family alone. By all indications, she is doing a Bufflciently good job for us to count on strengthening our sledge teams with the pups by next February or March. woman sues Neighbor On Exhaust Fan Noise Mrs. Alice H.
