I 5 After sailing out of the ice of Antarctica this year I thought of the men who wouldn't leave until next season, the men for whom we carried supplies this year, the men who "winter over". Ours is a long cruise, but the hardships and inconvenience.s these men live under far outweigh those of the Arneb, or any ship. And yet, each year Antarctica becomes a little more comfortable. Picture the explorers who ex- perienced man's first winter "on the ice", Today Antarctica has air strips, well insulated shelters, modern scientific equipment including a nuclear power plant. Scott, Amundsen . . .started with noth- ing compared with the supplies we carry in only one of the Arneb's holds. What a thirst for discovery and exploration! Therefore, I ask that this book and all of our-effort be dedicated to these discoverers of the early century to the men we left behind this year, to every man who has lived through the Antarctic winter, We h . . ave only a few pages in the half-written book of Antarctica. E. G. RIFENBURGH
