Gommamling Ulfieer Sigmund A. Bobczynski was born in Flint, Mich., on Aug. 15, 1915. He was graduated from East Grand Rapids High School and at- tended Wayne University, Detroit, Mich., for one semester. The following year he was ad- mitted to the U.S. Naval Academy in Annap- olis, Md. After receiving his commission as Ensign from the Academy in 1939, he was assigned to the heavy cruiser USS Pensacola, then to the destroyer USS Pruitt. He attended Sub- marine School in early 1941. This was fol- lowed with duty aboard the submarine USS Gudgeon in Pearl Harbor waters. During this tour of duty the Gudgeon sank over 100,000 tons of enemy shipping for she was awarded the Presidential Unit Citation. It was also during this time when Capt. Bobczynski married Miss Jane Ives of Hono- lulu. Approximately one year later June 1943 . 1 . ! he became the submarine Archerf1sh's execu- tive officer which made five war patrols in Western Pacific waters. Sinking enemy ship' ping and enemy naval ships, the Archerfish sank the I.M.S. Chinano, the world's largest aircraft carrier at that time.

The success of the science effort carried out in Antarctica by the United States Ant- arctic Research Program CUSARPJ, founded and supported by the National Science Foun- dation, is to a large degree dependent on the N avy's summer support activities. The Foun- dation research is also conducted by colleges and universities, research institutions, and government agencies in the fields of biology, K 1' :Q Y, geology, gravity , glaciology, meteorology, oceanography, upper atmosphere physics and seismology. The rewards from new discoveries through research are not kept secret but are shared for all mankind, and, under the provisions of the Antarctic Treaty among 12 nations, no nation may use its discoveries for military purposes. This is dramatic testimony that na- tions can Work together for the good of all.

If we were to dedicate this book to someone we would probably dedicate it to you, the ones we love, the ones we missed so much for so long. And this would be entirely fitting and proper. On the other hand, you would love us none the less- if we asked you to join us in its dedication to an idea which will live long after all of us have gone . . . an idea that is terribly old, but finding new and exciting importance in today's hectic world . . . an idea that captured our imaginations on a world-wide scale . . . an idea that kept us thinking of you as we extended your good will along with our own to other people around the world. The idea of course is the President's People-to-People Program. Quite simple in its purpose, it opened many vistas to all of us, it enabled us to know ourselves better, even as we found pleasure in doing for others. Its thesis is nothing more than taking stock of the goodness in the hearts of all Americans, and as representative Americans, insuring that that same good- ness found appropriate expression in our relations with other people, Our efforts did not require great outlays of money or material or or- ganization. It did require a little planning, a little interest, a little personal time-simple qualities with which all Americans are richly endowed and which we take for granted at home. Putting these things to work with our own natural resources on board ship- in the form of blood donations, open house, entertaining crippled children and orphans, and paying tribute to the honored dead, etc.-in other words, doing abroad as so many Americans do at home, We gave many people abroad just a little different slant-a truer slant-of us as Americans. In this .we knew with conviction that you would be both pleased and proud to be so represented abroad. It is in that light, then, that I ask you, the ones we love, to join us in the dedication of this happy account of our travels to the idea of People-to- People-American people to all other people of the world. We hope our ef- forts as documented herein will bring you satisfaction in knowing that we had much fun and pleasure in being Americans abroad in a manner which represented you the way you would want to be represented.
