Hillary Challenges Antarctic Peaks [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 29 March 1909
Hillary Challenges Antarctic Peaks (Editor’s Note-Sir Edmund Hillary, who climbed Mt. Everest May29, 1953, helped explore Antarctica during the International Geophysical Year of 1957-58. He came away hoping one day to tackle the great unclimbed mountains of the polar continent. Now he has accomplished that ambition. His own story of the adventure follows.) By Sir Edmund Hillary The Antarctic continent is the world’s last great reservoir of unclimbed mountains. From isolated peaks on the polar ice cap to the highest summit, Vinson Massif (16,860 feet), each mountain has its particular beauty and its own personality. In shape, they are frequently squat and massive rather than steep and slender. Their defenses are inaccessibility, intense cold and rings of deep crevasses.

Thomas Mcafee [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 29 March 1909
Thomas McAfee Introspective, gentle-spoken, Thomas McAfee is a poet who touches all subjects with a tender cynicism and a wit equaled by few. McAfee, 39, who hails from Alabama, has been in Columbia for several years. He teaches in the University English Department and the School of Journalism. On weekends weekend he writes. His poems tell of love, death, his past. He lie gently derides a multitude of small things that make up life. At times harsh, at times whimsical, his poems are interwoven with a soft insistent melancholy, perhaps a part of the gloomy disillusionment that is the heritage of many Southern writers. The most recent of his two books, “I’ll Be Home Late Tonight,” has been given wide-spread wide acclaim. PHOTOGRAPHED AND PRODUCED BY SHARON THOMAS I Would Have the Mind… There are many wanderings the mind takes, subtle and leaf-shadowed paths, blocked with sudden things impossible to define: a branch that rakes the face of the mind as it goes those paths. I would not cha...

PRESIDENT WANTS FOUR BATTLESHIPS A YEAR May Ask Next Congress for Six-Two Not Enough. By United Press. WASHINGTON. D. C.. Oct. 20.

He also intends to fight more cruisers and torpedo boats. He believes that the two battleships a year, ordered by the last congress, is insufficient.

Senator Beveridge will lead the fight in the Senate and Congressman Hobson in the lower house.
