Ronne Group Benefits
By Birth of Puppies
By Comdr. Finn Ronnt
North American Newspaper Alliance
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
