The swallows wheeled and circled overhead, Unheeded. Men and women stood, and said, " The ground is broken. " " Now a start is made, " And turned to go. The lofty range, the glade Of birch, the hillside, where, reflected red Against the snow, the winter sunset led Aurora ' s glow across the sky — these stayed To watch. The stone was laid upon the ground. Thereon a building rose, and figures stirred. Thus shortly, students searching, asking, found A college, pledged to exercise the word Of truth. A score of years have heard them sound The cry, " Ad Summum! " Let it still be heard. DRUSKA CARR. I1ENALI STAFF Editor . Edward K.

Bunnell who upon the eve of retirement deserves our praise for long years of service When the cornerstone for the University of Alaska was laid in 1917 only a few people sincerely believed that the institution would become a mecca of learning in this remote territory. The decision in 1921 of the Board of Regents of the Alaslca Agricultural College and School of Mines to appoint Charles Bunnell to the presidency is the most noteworthy factor in the successful expansion of the University. The Board realized that few men have, in addition to an excellent education, the varied ex- periences of farm boy, teacher, lawyer, business man and judge. During his years as a judge, President Bunnell became thoroughly acquainted with the people and economy of the Territory, which knowledge has been invaluable to the progress of the University. His farsightedness and faith in the job he is doing have held him steadfast to the difficult task of building with limited funds in an isolated frontier. The problems faced during the early years of the college were sometimes of a trivial nature, sometimes critical. Always they called for tact, patience and resourcefulness. That the problems were met and solved, are evidenced by the fact that recognition has been made of President Bunnell ' s work and of the work of the institution itself. Certainly the everglowing spirit of this educator will lend perpetuity to his well-known motto: WITH COURAGE AND FIDELITY. DR. CHARLES E . BUNNELL Grifftn ' s PRESIDENT, UNIVERSITY OF ALASKA 1921 - 1949 ALASKA THE SCENE OF ACTION T, HE drama in which we are privileged to play a part is to be enacted upon a stage coextensive with Alaska and the scene is here. The players best fitted for the work at hand are those who believe in themselves, who have the out- standing virtues of loyalty and courage, and who come upon the stage just as it is. Here is where we are and here is where the work we have to do must be done. CHARLES E. BUNNELL President of the University of Alaska. THE PRESIDENT ' S MESSAGE The trails of 1922 are becoming highways. Reinforced concrete construction has made its appearance on the campus. Progress has, of necessity, been slow; but ground gained has not been lost, and the objective of AD SUMMUM suggests the challenge which has been accepted. Twenty-seven ye ars in the life of an individual are quite a span if measured hour by hour, but in terms of events make only a few headlines. It is more significant to reckon in terms of acorns in the barrel than cubic inches of space. The acorns are worth remembering. Space and spurious articles can be forgotten. It has been a privilege all these years to be with the young men and the young women who have constituted the student body of this institution. They are among the best the world has produced, and under our form of government the possibilities for future generations of students are limitless. The highway ahead is wide open, ready to be improved and used by all who are here and those to come. Drive is necessary to reach Ad Summum on time. Along the way, equally essential leisure is at your command. Scenery unsurpassed surrounds us. The mountains of the Alaskan Range along the southern horizon are for all to enjoy, as are the flora and fauna of the four sections that comprise the University of Alaska campus. Bear, moose, cariboo and smaller fauna cross your trail with but little caution. White birches, bright-hued wild flowers are not to be forgotten; nor the feathered friends, both year-long and those on migra- tory wings. Opportunity for leisure in this great Northland is abundant. It can enrich and broaden your education for freedom. Make it yours. The years given to me to continue in the service of the University of Alaska are looked forward to with enthusiasm. Co-operation and loyalty of the many to the cause of higher education are indispensable factors in the building process. Let us keep the stride and keep the faith. CHARLES E. BUNNELL. X (lllii.. WI TH COURAGE ANN FIDELITY The University of Alaska now faces a most significant transition period which will follow the retirement of its founding father, Presi- dent Charles Ernest Bunnell. For 27 years the school and the man have virtually been one and the same, a situation which has shaped a president of a type not found on American campuses for many decades. As is becoming more and more apparent to those more than scantily acquainted with the story of the school, we have shared in the work of a man who will become a legendary figure to future Alaskans. To gain an insight into the motives and actions of the man, attention should first be directed to his childhood scene. Born of an old Colonial family on a Pennsylvania farm in 1878, Charles Bunnell early had habits of in- dustriousness and mental alertness stamped on his character. All through his grade school and high school days he worked long hours to earn his way. Nevertheless, he gained the highest of grades. Continuing in this manner, he was graduated from Bucknell University in 1900, Summa Cum Laude, with the degree of Bachelor of Arts. Later that same year Alaska gained a new school teacher, when the restless college grad- uate began his duties in a native school on Wood Island, near Kodiak. Returning to his home in 1901, he married Mary Anna Kline, a college classmate, whom he brought back to Alaska. Both taught school at Wood Island, and later at Valdez where Mr. Bunnell became principal of public schools. In 1907 he re- signed from school teaching and entered into business, meanwhile studying law in addition to carrying on his daily work. It was in Valdez that their only child, Jean, was born. He was admitted to the bar in 1908 and by 1912 was head of his own law office. He was nominated for Delegate to Congress on the Democratic ticket in 1914, but was not elect- ed. In 1915 Mr. Bunnell was appointed District Judge for the 4th Judicial Division and moved to Fairbanks. During his seven years as Judge, he traveled widely through Western Alaska and became intimately acquainted with the problems of the territory. This association, coupled with his achievements in school teaching and law made him a natural choice for the presidency of the newly created Alaska College of Agriculture and School of Mines. He was elected president on August II, I 92 I , and assumed his duties on December 7, 1921. Isolation from the states and competition with older schools were difficulties inherent in the establishment of a college in a pioneer area. His vision of the contribution that could be made to Alaska by a center of education and research was inconceivable to many who scoffed at the practicability of the school. However, these obstacles never for one mo- ment daunted the new president. Although through the first years the student body increased steadily from a mere handful, never for a minute was the school on secure footing. Long and many were the battles waged by Dr. Bunnell to obtain funds from an often disinterested legislature to keep the school open and effect necessary improve- ments. In the early years he performed many menial tasks himself, startling visitors with the casual air with which he treated the dignity of his office. In this way he exemplified the char- acter of a school which has always been with- out sophistication, but which has ever prided itself on the real merit of its students. In 1925 President Bunnell was awarded the honor ary degree of Doctor of Law by his Alma Mater, Bucknell University, in recogni- tion of his 25 years of exemplary service in education and law in the Territory. For 27 years Dr. Bunnell has lived a dream, fighting frustration and despair, ever work- ing toward the goal of expanding his school to enable it to attain the role it is destined to fulfil in Alaska. II Because of his stand for a greater univer- sity, he has often been the nucleus about which the turbulence of Alaskan sectional politics have raged. He has had to parry barrages of criticism often with militant ef- forts of his own. An extensive knowledge of law and a remarkable memory have served him well. During these years, the Alaskan in- fluence has done much to mold in him rugged individualism, a trait that has at times im- pressed others as being the most significant characteristic of the man. However, in the overall picture many discerning people have understood the purpose behind his deter- mined adherence to his own plans and appre- ciate their general soundness. He has become a controversial figure who has remained some- what of an enigma to a great many people. Dr. Bunnell has fought hard for the survival of the school and now with the satisfaction of knowing a firm foundation is laid, he is stepping aside. The University is entering a new era. A more education-conscious public and new government research projects are coming to its aid and insure great advances. The sacrifices made by Dr. Bunnell are ap- preciated and the institution he has fostered will endure, and it will continue to provide higher education on the Last Frontier. We salute you, Dr. Bunnell, and congratulate you on attaining the position of President Emer- itus. May your talents continue to serve Alaska. 12 WALTER SAHLSTROM MEMORIAL July 29, 1948, an advanced aircraft trainer took off from the airstrip at Beach, North Dakota, banked, slipped, and crashed to the earth. All the occupants of the plane were killed. This was the tragic passing of Alaska University student Walter Sahlstrom. Endowed with the qualities of leadership and academic achievement, it is easily understood why Walt Sahlstrom was so popular on the campus. Sahlstrom came from Mt. Vernon, New York. During the recent war he fought a difficult campaign with the army ground forces in Western Europe. His studies at the University were centered in the Department of Arts and Letters. While in school, Walter was editor of the Polar Star. He was active on the University Rifle Team and took part in intramural sports and skiing. With great feeling we take this occasion to pay our respect to one very much remembered classmate. 13 MAGNIFICENT MOUNTAINS STRETCH AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE 14 Facult acuity an J Adm in istra tion 15 CHARLES E.

The members of the Circle are students of the Russian Language, Russian History and Economic Geography classes, but anyone in- terested is eligible for membership. The Circle is strictly a non-political organization, and its motto is " Knowledge is the First Line of Defense. " The purpose of the Circle is to become acquainted with Russian music, cos- tumes and other cultural media, thus promoting a greater interest in Russian studies. Because of the existing world situation, our country is in need of a great number of American-born Russian linguists. The members of the Circle feel that it is for America ' s National interests and safety that a knowledge of Russia and the Russian language is urgently needed.

The membership de- cided to change the name of the Club so that men holding minor varsity award letters could be admitted to membership. Officers of the Club must be holders of Major " A ' s " . The purposes of this Club are to foster a more active interest in athletics on the campus of the University of Alaska, to pass on and recommend requirements for the winning of athletic awards, to survey new interests and set up major or minor sports and to sell small items of an athletic nature. This Club is a service club; the social aspect is but a by-product. The Lettermen ' s Club is an ASUA sponsored organization. The president of the group is also chairman of the ASUA Athletic Committee.

One of the oldest organizations on the campus, the International Relations Club was formed in the spring of 1935 for the purpose of helping students to keep themselves informed on conditions throughout the world. It is only through education that a peaceful civilization endures. PRESIDENT VINCENT M. RAIMOND VICE-PRESIDENT DONALD S. HANSON SECY.-TREASURER SYLVIA ANDERSON FACULTY ADVISER DR. FRED W. WAGNER 66 D E N A L I J[S T A F F The Denali Staff have attempted in this edition of the yearbook to include the activities and developments of the school covering a two year period. There has been an endeavor to make this annual greater than any one heretofore published. The pace of events at the University has been stimulating to the busy staff members who make great efforts to en- compass all important happenings. It is hoped that future Denali Staffs will be satisfied with no model book other than one that they know has not been excelled. 67 THE NORTHLAND AGGIE CLUB A relatively young organization on the campus, this club, with its active mem- bers, has made it their primary purpose to promote, improve and enjoy agriculture in the Territory of Alaska. With the help of the Experimental Farm and the University ' s facilities, scien- tific farming will become the vogue in the Territory ' s agricultural future.

The Ski Club has jumped off to another enthusiastic run on this popular winter sport. The members number seventy-five. This is sufficient to keep the cross country trails and the practice slope in fairly heavy traffic during good skiing weather. The Fairbanks Ice Carnival and the Anchorage Fur Rendezvous draw the best skiers of the campus. The cross country race and the ski jump are local events which the spectators may enjoy. While at Birch Hill, there is seen the slashing slalom and the and the scintillating schuss. Many newcomers to the sport catch the " bug " while at the University and never once regret it.

Editorship has posed a problem to the staff of this news- paper. Many fine editors have left the important office to devote more time to their studies. Remarkable is the fact that a state of complete congeniality now exists between the two campus publications . . . POLAR STAR and COLLEGIAN. As polls have shown, many students not only enjoy reading the bi-weekly paper but rate it a slight favorite over the FARTHEST NORTH COLLEGIAN. EDITOR MILTON LIGHTWOOD ASSOC.

It affords the University an opportunity to convey to the people of the territory general campus news, together with such articles of educational value as are deemed of interest. The staff of this newspaper represent a hard working lot, who endeavor to meet each print- ing deadline faithfully and accurately. There are plans from this office to convert the paper into a monthly magazine of high quality. This sounds exciting to everybody on the campus; may the newspaper make rapid progress with this project. EDITOR BILL ROBINSON ASSOC. EDITOR . . MARGUERITE CHAPMAN ASST.

The ASUA made an amendment to the constitution and created the Council. Repre- sentatives from each living group, both on and off the campus make up the official body. The main purpose of the Council is to discuss various questions and proposals, bringing only the important ones requiring a student vote or discussion before the ASUA. The Council selects publication editors and committee chairmen from letter applications. Any Council member will readily attest to the weekly picture of knotty problems to be handled, and the seemingly insurmountable obstacles to be faced.

" The Town Club " is made up of those students not otherwise represented on the campus, so it may include both on and off-campus students. This year we have three main groups in our organization: those students from the Flats, those from Town, and a large group of soldiers attending Ladd Air Force Base and other nearby military installations. The club ' s main functions are: to represent the interests of its members to the Student Council, to sponsor one or two social functions each year, usually in the spring. The officers are: PRESIDENT TOM ASHBROOK VICE-PRESIDENT CLARENCE HOLLINGSWORTH SEC ' Y.-TREASURER MARIAN MORRISON 73 THE CAMERA CLUB The objectives of this Club have been for promotion of art and science of photography, through the association of its members for study and entertainment in matters relating to photography; for photographic exhibitions and contests; for greater enjoyment of photography through processing own films and pictures; and, to promote greater interest and betterment in the knowledge and practice of photography.

The Education Society feels that more students will enter its field in the coming years and wishes to be able to assist anyone interested in education to get started with their study. It believes that there is no more responsible position in the world today than that of instructor of the youth. PRESIDENT VALEDA BRYANT VICE-PRES. . ARTHUR NAGOZRUK SEC.-TREAS. .

This group which always presents a colorful appearance, seated at a candle-lighted Madrigal table, is espe- cially well received in concerts. The men ' s chorus is formed from the men in the choral group. It performs at the spring concerts. 76 THE UNIVERSITY CHORUS The University Chorus is organized for the purpose of preparing and presenting programs of choral music, and to enable those who enjoy choral literature to learn some of the outstanding works in this field. During the 1947-48 season, the chorus presented five programs at the University and in Fairbanks. This year the group has presented programs for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and two Radio Workshop Broadcasts. Plans for second semester include performances for University Day and a concert in Fairbanks, as well as further radio broadcasts. Director: Asst. Prof. Lorraine Donoghue. Accompanist, Mrs. Blanche Wagner. 77 BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION SOCIETY This group means " Business " in every minute of its wakeful exist- ence. Having a purpose of fostering interest and study in the national pic- ture of busin ess administration, practices and policies. This band of stu- dents intensely likes every detail of its program. Perhaps their chief event of the year is the BA Ball which comes off late in the first semester. Other social functions are included in their calendar.

Could be that the well-known actors and actresses are having a rehearsal for their " The Male Animal " . Melodrama and rhetoric are handled with great ease by these artists. It had happened so often that a leading player had to leave unexpectedly in the arrival of the performance date, that understudies developed the most assurances of bei ng on stage for the principal presentation.

" " Anybody who would stand around and watch such a fiasco must be a psychopathic case. " " The Ice Bowl must be classed as one of the silliest projects ever conceived in the land of the sourdough, where silly projects are something less than rare. " But, like most " silly " sourdough projects, the Ice Bowl was a whale of a lot of fun. It wasn ' t Notre Dame vs. Michigan and it wasn ' t cluttered up with celebrities making a showing. The University of Alaska and Ladd air force teams were as evenly matched as it is possible for two teams to be — as witness the final score of to 0. No cleaner football was on display anywhere on New Year ' s Day than here. There was no penalty for any infraction of rules involving roughness or illegal use of hands. After every scrimmage, the players come up grinning at each other. That is a brand of football that most people have forgotten ever existed. The sidelines were thronged by skeptical specta- tors who came to scoff and remained to praise. The national press made much of the Ice Bowl — mostly in a fun-poking way. It was a good laugh all around. Let ' em laugh. Laughter has gone out of a lot of things that used to be good fun in the States, not excluding football. In his brief public utterance at the crowning of the Ice Bowl Queen, Brig. Gen. Dale V. Gaffney said: " Well, it looks like we ' ve started something here anyway. " We have indeed. Long live the Ice Bowl!

Unique among the courses available are those in far-northern archeol- ogy and ethnology, subjects which deal with the Eskimos and sub-Arctic Indians, and their signific- ance in circumpolar history. Much of the material and information for these courses has been gathered in Alaska by members of the present staff. The Department of Anthropology came into being in 1935, when Yale-trained Dr. Froelich Rainey terminated his research in the West Indies and came to the University to analyze the huge ar- cheological collection amassed by Otto Wm. Geist during several years of field work on St. Lawrence Island. Courses in anthropology were instituted and plans for an integrated research program were begun. By 1940 departmental activities had increased in scope to a degree that required a second instructor. Ivar Skarland and J. L. Giddings, alternated in this position until 1943, when instruction in anthropology was discontinued for the duration of the war. Dr. Rainey is now director of the Mu- seum of the University of Pennsylvania. In 1945 Skarland returned to head the department and to 106 compile data in physical anthropology. Giddings resumed research and instruction the following year, and in 1948 the Anthropology staff reached its present size when Miss Charlene Craft returned to the University after her graduate studies at Harvard. Integral to the department is a program of research and field work which has brought about close cooperation with other institutions, including the University of Arizona, the American Museum of Natural History, and the Danish National Museum. During the nine years prior to 1935, the greater part of the Eskimo collection now on exhibit in the Museum was secured through the efforts of Presi- dent Bunnell, who made it possible for Mr. Geist to visit many of the Eskimo settlements on the Bering Sea coast. Extensive excavations in the huge Kukulik Mound, on St. Lawrence Island, paved the way to widespread recognition of the University in the field of prehistory. The Point Hope expedition of 1939, staffed by Rainey, Giddings, and Mr. Helge Larsen, cura- tor at the National Museum of Denmark, turned up the now famous Ipiutak Site. This ancient ruin is STUDENTS: OSWALT, SOUTHARD, SPERRY perhaps most widely known for the " skulls with the ivory eyes " , which were publicized in connection with dozens of elaborate burials made by people with strong Asiatic affinities who lived at Point Hope some time near the beginning of the Christian calendar. 107 With the exception of the war years, the University has sponsored field trips every summer into various parts of Alaska. Students of anthropology have participated in many of them, gaining advanced field experience in out-of-the-way places. Our University is one of the few centers of research and instruction in tree-ring dating. Since 1937 tr-ee-ring dating, or dendrochronology — a technique first developed by an astronomer for tracing weather changes due to sunspots — has been successfully applied by Giddings to archaeology as well as to other branches of science. This method of determining the absolute dates of past events was used in 1939 to date the most recent sites at Point Hope. The Kobuk River region was chosen as an area for archaeological research in 1941, 1942, and 1947, largely because of the excellence of con- ditions there for the preservation of buried wood. A tree-ring calendar for that area reaching back to 970 A.D. has been plotted on the basis of wood recovered from some 80 house pits of various ages. Separate long calendars for other areas include those from the Yukon and Mackenzie Rivers. During the season of 1948 there were two parties working in the field. One was surveying the Bristol Bay area under Larsen; the other, directed by Giddings, excavated sites at Cape Denbigh. This work is part of a long range program which will eventually include the village sites and remains of most of the Bering Sea region. 108 Wendell Oswalt and Walter Arron, both students, followed the Yukon and Tanana Rivers this summer surveying the area for archaeological sites and collecting data for dendrochronology. They spent the latter part of the summer continuing work on the excavations on St. Lawrence Island. Owen Rye worked with Larsen in the Bristol Bay region. Other students who in the past have contributed to archaeological knowledge by their participation in field trips are Magnus Marks, S. J. Newcomb, Ord- way Southard, and John Sperry. Results of these activities are already appearing in encyclopedic reference works, and are being incorporated into theories about the native population of the New World, as a distinct contri- bution of the University of Alaska. 109 SCENIC GRANDEUR IN SOUTHEASTERN ALASKA no Geophysical Institute in STUART SEATON, Director Geophysical Observatory THE GEOPHYSICAL OBSERVATORY The University of Alaska has been engaged since 1929 in Arctic research embracing many of the departments of natural science and in particular the field of geophysics. The term geophysics is taken to mean earth physics generally. In the earlier years this research took the form of isolated projects and of specialized indi- vidual studies. Early in 1941 the Carnegie Institution of Washington, in cooperation with the University of Alaska, instituted a broad attack on Arctic physical problems embracing studies of the ionosphere, of long distance radio wave propagation, measurements of zenith auroral intensity, continuous deter- minations of the earth ' s magnetic field, and a continuation of seismological studies. This broader pro- gram was well in hand when World War II started. With advent of war several additional projects were initiated, i.e., the problem of deviation of radio waves from the great circle course by means of precision direction finders, study of rapid fluctuations in the earth ' s magnetic field by means of recording fluxmeters, a program of solar illumin- ation in cooperation with the U.S. Weather Bureau, certain theoretical investigations on the state of the atmosphere, and theoretical study of electromagnetic wave propagation in high latitudes. 112 During the war all this work fell under the cognizance of the Office of Scientific Research and Development. The Carnegie Institution of Washington had the contractural obligations and the Uni- versity of Alaska furnished the site, facilities, coordination and overhead. Most of this research was clas sified. With return to peacetime conditions it became clear that Arctic geophysical research at the University of Alaska had received wide recognition and should be carried forward on an even broader basis than before. To this end two administrative decisions were made. The first, to offer to the United States a site on the University campus upon which to erect a specialized laboratory for Arctic research, and the second, to create a formalized unit of the University, named the Geophysical Observatory, to carry on Arctic research through grants-in-aid, direct contributions, and public or private contracts. It was also thought desirable to plan the creation of a graduate school in the sciences to work in conjunction with the Arctic research program. In addition, a study was undertaken to determine the most favorable conditions leading to basic scientific discoveries. The first administrative decision was implemented by introducing into the Congress of the United States through the Delegate from Alaska legislation for the appropriation of public funds for the creation of a Geophysical Institute. The end result was a Public Law providing $100,000 in cash and contract authorization of $875,000 for construction of the Institute. The present schedule calls for commencement of construction early in 1949 under cognizance of the Federal Works Agency. The 13 United States is to retain title to the buildings and the University is to maintain the structures and pro- vide scientific direction and the basic staff in coordination with the President of the National Acade- my of Sciences. The second administrative decision was carried out through creation of a formal part of the University of Alaska designated the Geophysical Observatory. A Director has been appointed and the organization of the program under a Council of Fellows is nearly complete. The staff designations are Fellow, Member, Associate, Assistant, and S tudent, with investigators in the first two categories of adequate ability to carry on original research without supervision or with a minimum of supervision. In addition, principal faculty members of the University may be appointed as Academic Fellows of the Observatory. In order to recognize outstanding achievement in the field of geophysics, not more than two Honorary Fellows are invited each year to become associated with the Geophysical Ob- servatory on a correspondence basis. Full privileges of the Observatory are extended to Honorary Fel- lows whenever they may wish to spend a season in residence. The Geophysical Observatory of the University of Alaska is quite favorably located for study of Arctic problems. It is nearly in the center of maximum auroral activity, and it is in a region of great magnetic and atmospheric disturbances. Temperatures range from around 90 degrees above to 70 degrees below zero Fahrenheit. The climate is semi-arid with clear weather predominating throughout the year. The nearby city of Fairbanks is served by rail, by air, and by road. Living conditions are among the best existing in the Arctic. 14 Total research budget for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1949 is somewhat over one quarter million dollars. In addition to University funds assigned to the Geophysical Observatory, grants-in- aid are on hand from the Research Corporation, about $50,000 worth of instruments are on indefinite loan from the Carnegie Institution of Washington, research contracts are in force with other agencies and a cooperative program is being carried out with the Naval Research Laboratory. It is anticipated that Fellows of the Geophysical Observatory will be on the faculty of the Graduate School of Sciences and that activities of the Geophysical Institute will be coordinated with the Graduate School. It is clear that the conditions leading to basic scientific research involve both instruction and research. The aim is to have professors in the Graduate School teach not over four to six hours a week; devoting their principal efforts to research in the Geophysical Institute. An academic atmosphere of great individual freedom seems necessary, together with a salary schedule adequate to leave the investigators unworried over personal financial problems. Lack of adequate knowledge of the Arctic assures an almost unending supply of basic research problems conducive to vigorous research and guaranteeing important contributions throughout the ensuing years. A policy of inviting younger scientists to become working members of staff has been adopted in order to achieve the necessary conditions for versatility of attack. A plan is being inaug- urated for exchange of graduate students and staff members with other institutions of higher learning in order to, first, keep the staff broadly informed, and second, to afford opportunity for others to study Arctic problems at first hand. 115 116 DENALI SUMMER SCHOOL Of the fourteen attempts at climbing Mount McKinley, only six have been successful. Of the six, two of the parties were composed of University of Alaska students, representing no function of the university, but their own interests. In 1947, a party consisting of Herreid, Schuman, and Wood made an unsuccessful attempt at climbing McKinley, being forced down because of altitude sickness of one of the members. Deter- mined to gain the summit of the mountain, Herreid returned in the same summer accompanied by two other University of Alaska students, Daubs and Mills. Favored by good weather and climbing con- ditions this party made a successful ascent in fourteen days establishing an all-time record, of which they can be justly proud. 117 The following year another party of university students, Gonnason, McCall, Piper, Huizer, Sal- strom, and Spaulding made preparations for a pass at this, the highest peak in North America. Leaving from the vicinity of Wonder Lake on the eighteenth day of June, 1948, they made their way across the swollen waters of two glacial rivers and over twenty-five miles of tundra-lowlands which were in- fested with mosquitoes to McGonagalle Pass. Upon their return to the supply dump located on the banks of the Kantishna River, Salstrom was forced to leave the party because of badly blistered feet. Returning to McGonagalle Pass, the party, now reduced to five, met with unfavorable weather which persisted for several days. At the end of the eighth day, supplies were double-packed to eleven thousand feet, the precipitous Karstens ' Ridge was negotiated requiring twenty-seven hours of con- stant toil, up through waist-high snow. Restrained from further climbing by a complete state of exhaustion and a blizzard of hurricane proportions, the party holed up in home-made nylon mountain tents at the base of Browne Tower. After two days rest, the by now well bearded men, pushed on through Parker Pass and across the Grand Basin arriving at Denali Pass (altitude 18,000 feet) after thirteen and one-half hours of be- labored breathing. At this altitude each breath successfully inducted into the lungs was a clearcut victory. The time spent at Denali Pass, while waiting for weather sufficiently favorable to make a dash for the top, was endured under the most extreme conditions. Fortunately, a well battered tent, a rem- nant of the 1947 Washburn scientific expedition, was located and set up. On the morning of the third day at Denali Pass, an attempt was made to reach the top. At nineteen thousand feet, Spaulding found it impossible to breathe and still continue climbing. An hour or so later the rest of the party also was forced to return to the base camp at Denali Pass, the weather having closed in cutting down visibility to a few yards. On Tuesday, July the thirteenth, the day after the first unsuccessful attempt had been made to reach the top, Gonnason, McCall and Piper successfully reached the top of McKinley (altitude 20,300 feet). The temperature recorded at twenty below zero and the wind was estimated at forty miles per hour. Huizer had remained behind with Spaulding, since it was deemed unwise to leave one person alone with only his own resources to depend on. The following day was spent in recuperation at Denali Pass, and at noon of Wednesday, July the fourteenth, the entire party set off down the mountain, stopping only at McGonagalle Pass and arriving at Wonder Lake at ten o ' clock, the morning of Saturday the seventeenth day of July. I II I. After five gruesome days of mosqui- toes, rain, and stumbling over tundra, we topped McGonagalle Pass on the edge of Muldrow Glacier at 6,000 feet. Here one passes from the world of the living to that of the rugged, frozen white wastes of the Alaska Range. Southeast of the Pass, Mt. Brooks, as yet unconquered by man, rises to I 1 ,000 feet. II.

" The philosophy expressed is as true today as it was when penned by the author in 1624. Each of us stands to lose— or to gain— by the fortunes of every fellow man. Alaska, for all its richness in resources, suffers a loss from each of those who lose faith and turn back. Similarly, it is enriched many-fold for each of its young men and women who, guided by vision and inspired in the knowledge that fortune is here, prepare themselves for a larger role in its future.
