—————— DID PEARY REACH THE, POLE? Peary says that Bartlett took observa- tions in order "to have independent obser- vations by different members of the ex- pedition." But if "independent observa- tions" were necessary on the way to the Pole, they were much more necessary on the way to the Pole. Until Bartlett was sent back, Peary's story is corroborated. Beyond that point there is no corrobora- tion. It must be swallowed on the strength of Peary's own statements. If Bartlett had been allowed to go on with Peary, the story would have been beyond question or criticism. Peary's observa- tions would have been checked by Bart- lett's. There would have been no possi- bility of error. In the circumstances, after weighing the evidence, the only pos- sible verdict is "Not Proven." Peary may have reached the Pole, but he has not proved that he did so.-James Douglas in "London Opinion."
