I. Lavrischeff, who passed away December 5, 1937. Since Sep- tember of the previous year Dr. Lavrischeff had been associated with the University as research assistant and translator of Russian material in Washington, D. C, for the University ' s research project in Alaskan history. Dr. Lavrischeff was born in 1896 in Samara, on the Volga, in Russia, and educated in Russian institutions. Coming to the United States after serving as an officer in the Russian army, he was soon ordained as a priest in the Russian Orthodox Church at Sitka. After serving as priest in the Territory for some years, he left Alaska and entered the University of California, where he received his doctor ' s degree in education in 1935. Previous to receiving his degree, he had alternated attendance there with several years of teaching and supervisory work in the Territorial schools. In the summer of 1936 Dr. Lavrischeff was appointed to examine and translate Russian documents for the University of Alaska. His abilities as a linguist, his extensive travel, his familiar- ity with the Russian Orthodox Church, and his thorough training, made him a valuable member of the research staff. Above all, his qualities as a gentleman and citizen won him many friends who regret his passing. ± res id resident s M ess ag€J During this restless period of economic upheaval, social disturbance, and financial stress, it behooves you, and each of you, to endow your future with a generous supply of those powerful forces by virtue of which this Nation came into existence, and has maintained itself. There are no substitutes for courage, industry, honesty, thrift, and loyalty. Permit not yourselves to be led to believe that you can expect to reap a bountiful harvest from fields you have neither plowed, planted, nor tilled. You are fortunate, indeed, to be on our last great frontier and to have the sustaining influence of pioneer traditions. Alaska offers you a field of opportunity so vast I do not presume to estimate its boundaries. Most earnestly I urge you to prepare yourselves to participate in the develop- ment of this " Empire of the North " , and thereby become justly entitled to receive a well earned share of its prosperity.

Gasser Dean of Men Dean of Faculty William Elmhirst Duckering handles the problems which come to his office with a fairness and efficiency that has won him the respect of faculty and students alike. Heading the largest school of the University, Dean of Mines Raymond Jenness Barber has in his first year proved himself a capable executive officer. Edith Collais Evans, in her first year as Dean of Women at the Uni- versity, has displayed a keen human understanding and a kindly interest in the problems of youth Many and varied are the problems that confront Dean George Gasser in his duties as Chairman of the Student Affairs Committee and Dean of Men, but equitable solutions are always forthcoming. 15 FACULTY Raymond Jenness Barber Professor of Geology and Mining Dean of the School of Mines Alfred W.

The dormitory, which is now nearly completed, will have accommodations for sixty-six women students. Plans are under way to begin the construction of the power plant on the seventeenth of May, the day following Commencement. For the purpose of establishing an agricultural fur farm experiment station and to be designated as sub-station No. 2, the Legislature at the same session appropriated the further sum of $20,000. The site selected for this station is near Petersburg and the work of clearing the site is in progress. By another appropriation, funds were provided for the Commissioner of Mines to establish assay offices at Nome, College and Ketchikan. Since a duplication of the work already being done at the University by the United States Geological Survey was unnecessary, this station was transferred to the Commissioner of Mines. Off the press during the year and for distribution are Volume II, Mis- cellaneous Publications of the University of Alaska, " Archaeological Excava- tions at Kukulik, St. Lawrence Island, Alaska, " by Geist and Rainey, and Campus From the Air Volume III, " Auroral Research at the University f Alaska, 1930-1934, " by Fuller and Bramhall. The success of extension courses in mining during the 1935-1937 biennium (624 enrolled during 1936-1937) met with the approval of the Legislature and the fund wa- increased from $1(),()(M) to $lo,()(M) for the present bi- ennium. The faculty has hecn increased .by establishing the positions of instructor in chemistry, assistant professor of Knglish, assistant professor of geology and mineralogy, assistant professor of education, and head of the depart- ment of music. The scope of agricultural experiment station work was increased, July 1, 1937, by transferring the University Farm to the Fairbanks Station. Likewise, and with in- creased funds for cooperative extension work, it was pos- sible to add to the force and keep a home economics demonstration agent stationed in Southeastern Alaska. The Alaska History Research, for which funds were appropriated by the Rockefeller Foundation, has con- tinued the examination of records and documents in Wash- ington, D. C, with a staff of three, assisted during the summer by the Director. This project sustained a great loss when translator of Russian, Dr. Tikhon Lavrischeff, departed this life on the fifth of December. Palasontological research in the Fairbanks section, financed by Mr. Childs Frick of New York, was continued for the eighth season. The work was extended to the Livengood section and many rare specimens were re- covered. The museum continues to add to its large collections of archaeological treasures and to prove of special interest to all visitors. During the year a considerable number of old Alaska publications have been accessioned. Through the courtesy of Dr. Volney Richmond the old Russian blockhouse at St. Michael was donated and delivered to the Museum. . mc Worn fit ' Itormitorr Present Women ' s Dormitory Section of University Museum Student loan funds have been substantially increased both by earnings and donations. The Shiels-Timson loan fund received an additional thou- sand dollars from the founders. And quite recently the Leopold F. Schmidt loan fund was established by Peter and Adolph Schmidt, sons of Leopold F. Schmidt. The amount is $1,500. Of administrative importance is the experiment beginning with the March issue of the Collegian in which the " Student Section " first makes its appearance. The lack of adequate facilities to house students has been a major problem all the year. Both the first and second semesters have record enroll- ments. The new dormitory for women solves the problem temporarily for women students, but the demand for suitable accommodations for men is increasing so rapidly that new dormitories for men are imperative.

Bramhall, Professor of Physics at the Uni- versity, was presented with a Congressional medal, voted to him by the United States Congress in recognition of his eminent scientific service as a member of the Second Byrd Antarctic Expedition. The ceremony, an impressive and appropriate tribute, was held in the University Gymnasium. An introductory talk by Dean William Elmhirst Duckering on Antarctic Exploration preceded the reading by President Bunnell of the Congressional resolution: PUBLIC RESOLUTION NO. 15— 74th CONGRESS JOINT RESOLUTION Extending the Gratitude of the Nation to Admiral Byrd and to the Members of His Expedition. WHEREAS Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd and the memhers of the Second Byrd Antarctic Expedition are returning home from a successful and heroic exploration of Antarctic lands, wherein they have extended our knowledge of this vast area hy airplane flights, tractor and dog sled trips, making extended and valuable scientific observations; and Whereas the members of the expedition have displayed a courage and devotion worthy of the high- est traditions of American exploration, and an unswerving loyalty to the superb leadership of their commander; and Whereas Rear Admiral Byrd has added another notable chapter to the annals of American expedi- tions by his genius in organizing, transporting and providing for the subsistence of his men while they carried on a program of research in twenty-two branches of science under the most adverse conditions, and he personally displayed exceptional gallantry in his lone vigil away from the Little America base in order to make important meteorological observations: Therefore, be it Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress Assembled, That the gratitude of the Nation be extended to Admiral Byrd and to the members of his expedition, and that a copy of this resolution be appropriately inscribed and presented to him and to each member of the Second Byrd Antarctic Expedition. Approved, May 8, 1936. The following lines are excerpts from a letter sent to President Charles E. Bunnell by Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd for the occasion: " . . . Some months ago Congress voted a Congressional Medal to Dr. E. H. Bramhall. one of the scientists on my last expedition to the Antarctic. The medal is one of the highest honors within the power of the American people to bestow . . . " " . . . Dr. Bramhall did a splendid job and it is fitting that he should have been so honored . . . ' ' " P. S. Bramhall is one of the best men and best scientists I have ever known. " • 23 ri I rY v rt.el r rt S ENIORS r K " i .

Much of the success of these affairs was due to the leadership of Druska Carr, class president. Ted Mathews Trail, B. C.

Officers and Standing Committees Lucha, Rutledce, Colp, Beistline, Runyan, Rhode, Johnson, Yasuda, Lyman, Scott, Johnston The Associated Students of the University began their activities for the year 1937-38 with supervision of Student Welcome Week in September. A special Student Limited train brought students from the coast and the States. Merchants of Fairbanks displayed appropriate window decorations; the Empress Theatre invited all University students to a special College Night Performance. The President Leo Rhode Junior Chamber of Commerce in Fairbanks honored the faculty and students with a Welcome Dance. The A. S. U. A. sponsored a free Registration Day Dance so that students could become acquainted. Freshman Initiation and the Bonfire were supervised by the organization. In November the Association approved and undertook the building of an ice hockey rink across from the Women ' s Dormitory. The rink was a popular amuse- ment place throughout the winter. At the December meeting it was decided that six students would be chosen by the Executive Council and Dean Duckering to represent the University in " Who ' s Who in American Colleges and Universities. " The representatives for the year 1937-38 were Olavi Kukkola, Druska Carr, Jane Runyan, Carl John- ston, Dick Mahan, and Ted Mathews. 42 • The University basketball team was sent to the Anchorage Fur Rendezvous by the A. S. U. A. in February to compete with teams from various parts of the Territory. During February the organization voted to edit and publish a student section of the COLLEGIAN. George I ' olk, Jr., was chosen to edit this section for the remain- der of the year. Cooperating with the Fairbanks Ice Carnival Association, the A. S. U. A. elected by popular vote Miss Gertrude Schlotfeldt to be " Miss University " to compete with beauty queens from various Maskan cities for the title of " Miss Alaska " . To conclude the year of activities tin- annual A. S. I . A. Banquet was held in Fairbanks, at which time various activity awards were made. The officers of the Association during 1937-38 were Leo Rhode, president; Bob Lyman, vice-president; Violet Johnson, secretary; Percy Lucha, treasurer. On the Executive Committee in charge of financial affairs were Jane Runyan, Earl Beistline, and Leo Rhode, ex-officio. The Athletic Committee included Carl Johnston, chairman; Hana Yasuda, and Dick Mahan. Douglas Colp was athletic manager with Wilson Scott, assist- ant athletic manager. Bob Rutledge was the student member of the Boxing Com- mittee.

A. for student news, features and editorials. George Polk, senior student in Arts and Letters, was selected to edit the new section, and James V. Fletcher and Everett R. Erickson, faculty members, were appointed co-editors of the other division of the paper devoted to administration news and editorials. Harrison Leer, editor of the publication before the change, became business manager. Besides the student staff members, who were former contributors, an abundance of new journalistic talent was uncovered, resulting in a pub- lication that, it is felt, furnished a greater appeal to its many subscribers. 44 James V.

Phipps of Colorado, visited the Alaska Agricultural College and School of Mines on July 20, 1926, Mrs. Phipps expressed her interest in the College by becoming the donor of the first scholarship to the institution. This scholarship provided that the high school student in Alaska who proved himself entitled to the award by competitive examination should receive the sum of $600 for four successive years. With this provi- sion it was not possible for another winner to enter until the preceding one had finished the four years. In 1931 this was changed to $150 a year, affording the opportunity for one Phipps scholar to enter every year. John R. Wilcox of Valdez, with an average of 91 5-7 per cent, was the winner of the first scholarship. Other winners of the Phipps award are: John E. Stewart of Juneau, in 1931 ; George B. Henton of Fairbanks, in 1932; William R. Cashen of Douglas, in 1933; Harold Culver of Anchorage, in 1935; Harrison Leer of Cordova, in 1936; and Edward K. Holt of Seward, in 1937. 62 • HONOR PLAQUES jf% £.- S- Al u JJB S-4 ? t «Wi« - • MiL i-Lmau. . A -..•-. -»w fe J MtSuttAfi amf. tht In the hallway of the University library hang six honor plaques.

Of the others, the one for honor graduates was given by the faculty members of the University for the college year 1936-37. Mrs. George L.

This lack of intercollegiate competition is due, of course, to the isolation of the University. It is 2000 miles from another institution of higher learn- ing. Undaunted by lack of competition, however, the University is equipped to offer a wide range of sports to the athletically minded, and has developed, under the expert tutelage of the competent coaching staff, outstanding stars in the major sports: basket- hall, boxing, and hockey. Besides these major sports, there is a wide variety of minor sports. The well equipped gymnasium en- ables all who wish to participate in fencing, wrestling, tumbling, handball, volleyball, tennis, target-shooting and gymnastics. The skating rink and the many slalom, cross- country, and downhill ski trails, as well as a fine new ski jump, offer winter sports equal to those of Sun Valley and Chamonix. For their splendid organization, instruction, and inspiration worlds of credit go to: Dr. James Ryan, director of athletics and coach of varsity basketball; Dr. Alfred Bastress, hockey coach; Lawrence Bayer and Norman Phelps, Frosh and women ' s basketball coaches, respectively; and Leonard Newman, wres- tling coach. Douglas Colp, athletic manager, and his assistant. Wilson Scott, have been invaluable, and have con- tributed greatly to the success of the athletic school year, and deserve the thanks of the entire student body for their unceasing efforts. ANCHORAGE FUR RENDEZVOUS The Team Our Doug Anchorage Special All Aboard January 27 — The Student Body responded to an invitation from the Anchorage Fur Ren- dezvous by voting to send a comhination Varsity-Freshman haskethall squad to com- pete in the sports tournament. February 19-22. February 18 — The students turned out en masse to give the players a send-off. Athletes, with Coach Ryan and Manager Doug Colp. who boarded the train were: Dick Mahan. Ted Kukkola. Woody Johansen, Gene Richey, Dick Downing. George Karabelnikoff, Norm Richey. Jerry Ottem. John Cray and Frank Cashel. February 20 — The University defeated Wa- silla. 53 to 5. February 21 — The school continued its winning streak with a 25 to 21 victory over the strong U. S. C. G. Spencer five. February 22 — The University was sched uled to meet the Fairbanks Wolverines for the championship of Alaska. However, the storm-bound Juneau team arrived, and the Wolverines were elected to play them. Score: Wolverines 29. Juneau 28. February 19-22 — The University was well represented on the Fairbanks Ice Hockey team by Gordon Picotte and George Karabelnikoff in the forward line and Wally Kuhn on defense. The composite team made a clean sweep of four games over the Anchorage and Palmer aggregations. February 23 — Home again.

Strengthened by the return of Woody Johansen and George Kar abelnikoff, the team exhibited worlds of potential speed and power in the early practices. However, the Varsity lost the first conference game to the strong Brown Bears, when a last period rally fell just short of overtaking the lead built up by the Brownies in the first half. A week later Karabelnikoff the Wolverines squeezed out a one-point decision over the Polar Bears at the University Gym. In the next game against the Frosh team the Varsity showed its first organized play and won. The best game of the entire season followed when the Varsity, determined to stay in the win column, took an early lead from the Brown Bears on a fast passing attack. The Polar Bears then played the kind of brilliant, heads-up ball of which their supporters knew they were capable, only to Yl RKOVICH CaSHEI Rickey Hooks a High One Downinc crack momentarily in the overtime period to come out on the lower end of a 42-37 score.

This defeat, however, was later avenged in a thrilling overtime game, which ended at 34-31 in favor of the Cubs. Twice the Frosh nearly upset the highly touted Brown Bears, but each time gave way in the crucial moments to their more experienced adversaries.

Skiing has developed into a fanatical re- ligion hereabouts. Popular several years ago, the enthusiasm has been whipped up by the constant addition of new equipment and new trails to conquer. Last year President Bun- nell donated a well-equipped cabin in hills three miles north of the campus. The mem- bership of the club mushroomed immediately. This year a fine ski jump has been erected on Rainey Ridge, and the cabin has been redecorated and more completely furnished. Several exceedingly pleasurable parties have taken place at the cabin this winter, and practically the entire membership turned out for each occasion. Members of the University Ski Club took part in the Fairbanks Ice Carnival ski races, and their performance was a credit to the organization. The club sponsors an annual series of cross- country and down-hill races. Great interest is always shown in these events, but never before have they been taken so seriously as this year. For weeks before the day of the races, candidates for the various events slid over the three courses daily — always attempt- ing to clip minutes from the previous records. s t_- s Look Out Below! 74 • WRESTLING Standing; Coach Ryan, Miihuu, ( " F hhui..

In the Fairbanks Ice Carnival and Dog Derby parade the cadets formed in platoons and marched in a column of squads. On arrival at the ice palace the unit swung into a company front for the arrival of the queen ' s float. Lieut. G. W.

It was a windy afternoon, with the fog running just above the mastheads, and visibility none too good. The date was August 21st, 1732. In his report to the Imperial Government Gvozdev wrote: " . . . it was now Fedorov ' s watch, and he, without consulting anyone, gave orders to weigh anchor and approach the southern point of the shore. From there we could see huts, but in spite of our best efforts we did not come as close to them as we wished on account of the head wind and the shallow water . . . " Gvozdev had already visited the two Diomedes, and had sailed east. Now, as it was late in the fall, he listened to his sailors who wished to return home, and set sail for Siberia without having set foot on the third " island " . He never knew that he had probably seen the mainland of Alaska. The map-makers of Gvozdev ' s time were at a loss as to what to make of Company Land and Gama Land, large territories supposedly lying somewhere east of Siberia in the wide expanses of the " Eastern " Ocean. It was not until Bering ' s second voyage, and the voyages of later explorers, that these territories were reconciled into one that actually existed, lying farther to the north, called Alaska or The Great Country. St. Lawrence Island had been discovered and named as early as 1728; but St. Lawrence Island lies a hundred and ten miles off the Alaskan coast, and from it you can see land only back on the Siberian side. S. S. " Victoria " Off Nome — Jacobs, Xome 86 • — Jacobs, iimr Midnight Sun, Elevation 5000 Feet, Nome, June 21, 1935 Southeastern Alaska, Kodiak and the Alaska Peninsula were discovered, explored and ex- ploited hefore much attempt was made to learn a great deal about the long, forbidding coast that started from Latitude 58 degrees and ran northward far into the Arctic. Places were left to be named by Captain Cook, who, almost a half-century after Gvozdev and Bering, sailed along the Western Alaska coast and up into the Arctic Ocean until the ice-pack stopped him. Most of Cook ' s names stuck: witness Bristol Bay, Norton Sound, King Island, Sledge Island, Cape Prince of Wales . . . The re were others whom history cannot ignore in recounting of Western Alaska — Otto von Kotzebue, Shismaref, and Father Juvenal, the kindly Russian priest murdered by the Iliamnas. And later, into this Ultima Thule pushed various religious sects whose imprint still exists. The fur seal was for the Russians, and remained for the United States for a long time, the most valuable resource of Western Alaska. It became also the cause of long-continued trouble between the United States, Great Britain, Japan and Russia. Whether the United States could prevent other nations from taking seals on the high seas remained a moot question for many years. It gave the principle of mare clausum in international law its final test. Eventually an agreement was made to take seals only on land, with each of the four countries involved receiving a percentage of the catch. Today the seals return each year to their breeding grounds on the islands of St. Paul and St. George of the Pribilov group, protected; the harvest of furs has been growing almost steadily since the settling of the controversy. But at one time, when the arguments were hottest, conditions in Bering Sea had been such that Rudyard Kipling was inspired to write: " There ' s neither law of God nor man, run north of fifty-three. " While the fate of the fur seal hung in the balances of international agreement, fish, especially salmon for canning, rapidly became one of Alaska ' s major products. In Bristol Bay, shallow spearhead of Bering Sea, edged on one side by the north coast of the Alaska Peninsula and on 87 the other by the Kuskokwim region, fishermen found the greatest red salmon banks in the world. The first canning plant on the bay was built at Nushagak in 1884. Others followed soon, and in 1890 operations were extended to Naknek. On the Kvichak side two canneries were built in 1895. At the present time Bristol Bay has a total of between twenty-five and thirty canneries. Bristol Bay fishing is carried on in two manners. One is by the use of nets staked near the beaches; the other, far more productive, is open sea fishing in double-ended Norwegian-type boats rigged with full sprit sail. The latter method is replete with both adventure and danger. A small sailboat, perhaps loaded to the gunwales with salmon, requires a skillful sailor to keep it right side up in a sudden storm. Power-driven craft are prohibited by law from engaging in the actual fishing. Time is valuable — in two or three weeks the season is ended and the catch made or lost. After the fish came gold, and, strangely, the first boom that came to a Western Alaska town was a result of a strike seven hundred miles away as the crow flies, at Daw son, Y. T. Stampeders into the Dawson country who wished to avoid the grueling overland route from Skagway, took passage to St. Michael and from there reshipped via river steamer to fight slowly up against the current of the Yukon. But it was to Nome, a hundred and twenty miles across Norton Sound from St. Michael, that was reserved the greatest boom Alaska has ever seen. Just before the turn of the century, three Scandinavians discovered gold in almost unbelievable quantity on Anvil Creek. A year or so later the beach sands were found to hold rich pay. The winter of 1899-1900 and the following summer saw the influx into Nome of between fifteen and twenty thousand stampeders, the greatest gold rush ever recorded. Nome changed overnight, as it were, from a barren, sandy strip of beach to a city of tents, frame houses, law offices and saloons. Tex Rickard, afterward promoter of million- dollar prize fights, operated " The Northern " , a saloon and gambling-house. Rex Beach saw here the drama he later portrayed so well in " The Spoilers. " No harbor existed at Nome. Passengers and freight alike had to be unloaded in the roadstead, a mile or two out, onto barges, sea dories — almost anything that could stand the buffeting of the Nome From the Air — Jacobs, Nome 88 • sea— and then landed on I he beach. Lumber and mer- chandise were piled near the water ' s edge in such quantities it was impossible to move them away fast enough. I-ater. a tower was set out in the sea, with a cable hoist to unload barges and bring cargo to the dock. This lasted until 1913, when a great storm broke the tower from its foundation. Today, tugs and barges bring passengers and cargo from the steamers into the government-dredged mouth of Snake River on the west end of the citv Within this shelter unloading is a comparatively simple matter. The long winters at Nome seven months when all communication with the outside world except by dog-team, and much later by radio and airplane, was entirely cut off — provided the incentive for the dog- racing epics, the Alaska Sweepstakes. These proved the most grueling dog races ever run ; the stamina required of both driver and team kept all but the best drivers and the finest and most carefully selected teams from even entering. The Alaska Sweepstakes developed and made world-famous such drivers as Leonhard Seppala and Scotty Allen. Later, when the diphtheria epidemic struck Nome in the dead of win- ter, dog-teams in relay brought antitoxin over the long trails in record time. Balto, dog-hero of the mercy run, became known by name to almost every school child in the United States. Nome was a picturesque town. The streets were narrow and crooked, and planked. Horses ' hoofs and the hobnailed boots of miners resounded for blocks. The buildings, flimsy and false- fronted, were all uupainted. Under the foundations the frost heaved and settled continuously, imparting to the buildings and the entire city a certain weird, topsy-turvy effect. Above the roofs a forest of tin smokestacks reached up almost the height of another story. Though extending along several miles of beach. Nome was compact and closely built. Build- ings stood wall to wall against each other; the second stories jutting out over the sidewalk reached within a few feet of those across the street. Bering Sea was only a few feet from the back door of those whose places were on the south side of Front Street. Fire came and burned the city as if it had been a box of kindling wood. It rose again, like the phoenix, from its ashes, and burned again. A great storm in Bering Sea smashed tugs, barges, washed out a graveyard, and left a mass of sand and wreckage where half the town had been. Nome learned slowly. The sea is still only a few feet from the back door of the buildings on the south side of Front Street; the great empty spaces left when rebuilding was started after the fire of September, Vi4, are now being taken up by frame constructions, wall to wall against each other. But now there are heavy bulkheads to keep out the sea, and the streets are wide and graveled. Dr. Rainey With St. Lawrence Island Natives Native Landing Supplies for Bunnell-Geist Bering Sea Expedition Bering Sea Natives in an Umiak 89 To Nome every summer come the King Islanders from their lonely, precipitous rock out in Bering Sea. In their great skin-boats, " oomiaks " , they ride through the surf and in toward the beach until aground in the shallow water. They make their summer village on the east end of Nome and spend their time carving ivory for the tourist trade. When fall comes, the government ship " North Star " takes them back to their island home. West and south of Nome lies St. Lawrence Island, nearer to Siberia than to Alaska. Here has been found material rich in value to archaeologists and ethnolo- gists alike. Hrdlicka, Collins and others have made archaeological investigations of the island. Geist and Rainey of the University gathered archu-ological ma- terial over a peiiod of several years, doing the most painstaking and complete work on the island that has been so far accomplished, and published a report of their findings and observations. Otherwise, however, the island is barren, scarcely sufficing to support its small native population. As in the greater part of the mainland region of western Alaska, there are no trees. Driftwood provides the main source of fuel. North again lies Teller, and Cape Prince of Wales on Bering Strait. Then Shismaref, home of George Ahgupuk, Eskimo artist. East of Shismaref and Deering is Kotzebue Sound, named after the explorer who explored it in 1816. Here are Kiwalik, Candle, where new development in mining is being pushed rapidly, Kotzebue, and, far inland, Shungnak, near the head-waters of the river known by the lines — " And the waters of the Kobuk Rippled onward to the sea. " Deeper into the Arctic, on the bleak northwest coast near the top of the continent, are Point Hope and Wainright. Then Barrow, the farthest north town in Alaska, within a few miles of being as far north as any part of the mainland of North America. Here daylight is uninterrupted from March until the latter part of the summer. The temperature may rise as high as eighty or ninety degrees above zero. On the other hand, the sun goes completely out of sight for almost two months of the winter. And there is no time of the year when one can say positively that it will not snow.

At the clow ot the whaling -« ;im ii, tin- latter part of May or the first of June, the natives hold the great celebration feast, the " Naliikaluk " . Mail comes in from four to a half-dozen times a year. The few ships that reach Harrow during the open season are joyously welcomed. In the winter, dog-teams set out from Kotzehue for Harrow every second month. Otherwise, the only mail connection is by a chance plane. At Harrow lives Charles Brower. " King of the North " , who has spent a greater part of a lifetime at this northern outpost. In 1935, the ill-fated Post-Rogers flight ended a few miles away from Barrow. - ■ The history of Western Alaska has been largely of coast and sea. because, except by river travel, inland movement has been almost barred. Important towns have been built on the Kusko- kwim. such as Bethel, and, on the lower Yukon, Marshall. Russian Mission. Holy Cross and Flat. Some have dwindled to a vestige of their former size — others, like Flat, are vigorous and growing communities. The incongruity, and yet strange harmony, of the old and the new in Western Alaska seems in this setting — to have a touch all its own. The peaceful, somehow pathetic, structures of the Russian Orthodox Church in the Bristol Bay region contrast strangely with their surroundings. The natives have cast away their pagan religions — almost — retaining only the more supernatural aspects of superstition. But they are good Orthodox Christians, too; their trails to church form a design like the spokes of a great wheel, all converging at the hub. At Unalakleet, wire and insulators — what is left of them — the poles are long since gone — are mute remembrance of the Western Union ' s proposed telegraph line to Europe via Bering Sea and Siberia, sixteen thousand miles of wire. When, in 1867. news came that the trans-Atlantic cable had been repaired suc- cessfully, obviating the necessity of a land line, the equipment was left to the disposal of the Eskimos. At Nome, where barley and hops never grew, a brewery still stands. Western Alaska has a golden past, a brilliant past. That the future will be the same we cannot say — we can only guess. Constant growth will take place in those communities that have firm economic foundation. But events will happen that will necessitate the changing of maps. Two years ago, small type served to designate Good news Bay. But not now!
