SOUTH POLE EXPEDITION SCOTT

LEADING TO DOOM – Looking fit and warmly dressed, Capt. Robert F. Scott of the British Navy, leader of the ill-fated 1912 expedition to the South Pole, is seen on skis. His party of five reached the pole Jan. 17th., to find that Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen had got there a month earlier. All of Scott’s party died on the way back as they were caught in antarctic sub-zero cold and blizzards, with their supplies giving out. (AP-Photo)
