Scott, British ex plorer of Antarctic regions and main rival of Amundsen in search of tho pole, perishes in blizzard with un known number of his party. Documents found on the bodies show that the expedition was returning from the south pole and had reached the ex act spot which is marked with Amund sen’s flag on January 18th, 1912. Am undsen’s hut also was found. Mrß. Scott, widow of the explorer, Bailed from San Francisco on the 6th of February, expecting to Join her hus band in New Zealand.

Scott, the Ant arctic explorer, and an unknown num ber of his companions, perißhed in the Antarctic while on their return jour ney from the south pole.
