Evelyn B. Baldwin, the arctic explorer has in an interview
has pronounced the reports of difficulties on his ship, the America,
during the recent Baldwin-Ziegler Expedition to the north as incorrect.
He says that any criticisms are out of place and premature at the end of
one year of an expedition the time for which was placed at five years.
He asserts that he only took such measures aboard the America as were necessary
in the interests of the expedition and that he will pursue his efforts
to reach the north pole as vigorously as ever."
