To Members of the NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC SOCIETY YOUR PART IN THE BYRD ANTARCTIC EXPEDITION "The help the National Geographic So ciety has given to explorers has been very great. I happen to be one of those explorers, and I am glad to acknowledge that without the help of The Society I have had in connection with all my expeditions there would have been a very different and less successful story to tell. The Society's encouragement has sustained me many times when we were having a tough time in the field of operations."' -FromAdmiral Byrd's address at the homecoming reception accorded the Second Byrd Antarctic Expedition by the National Geographic Society at Washington. W HEN the Second Byrd Antarctic Expedition sailed up the Potomac to Washington to be warmly welcomed home from fruitful explorations in Antarctica, Admiral Byrd completed ten years of close association with your National Geographic Society in polar research. Members of The Society have made this cooperation possible, for only through their support can aid be extended to explorers and The Society's broad educational program be carried on. Many of your friends would also like to have a part in The Society's work-to share with you the personal satisfaction, the pleasure, and the benefits of membership. Will you not give your friends this opportunity by nominating them?
