©Byrd Antarctic Expedition YAKE, YAKE!" SHOUTS FINN RONNE TO HIS PANTING DOGS AS THEY PULL THEIR LOAD OVER AKNOLL In dog driver language "yake" means "go." Begoggled and smiling, Finn guides the sled by its gee pole, which heholds inhis right hand. To turn the dogs to the right, he shouts "Gee !" and to call them left, he commands "Haw !" His glasses are heavy and dark to protect his eyes from the brilliant glare ofthe snow. The driver of the last team uses his feet as brakes to slow the load as it coasts downhill. These sledges are on their way from ship tocamp.
