TWO OF THE WORLD'S
US Admiral Plans
To Abandon Bases
McMURDO SOUND, An
tarctica, Dec. 13 (UP
Rear Adm. George J. Dufek said
today he would start making
plans to abandon all U. S. bases
in Antarctica unless he receives
new orders within eight weeks.
Dufek, commander of the U. S.
Navy's Operation Deepfreeze III,
said a lack of instructions from
Washington on the future of the
United States program for -this
icebound continent has placed him
in a dilemma.
His orginal orders which still
stand were to support the Inter
national Geophysical Year pro program
gram program until the end of 1958. But
if that is to be the end of all
U.S. programs in the Antarctic,
Dufek will have to start planning
soon after the first of the y ea r
to get out.
"Unless I hear something differ different
ent different by this Feb. 1, I will make
plans to evacuate all American
bases in the Antarctic," he said.
Congressmen here on a recent
visit expressed the opinion that
the United States should continue
its program after the IGY ends
and scientists down here say this
is a must.
uutek s remarks came as a
shock to newsmen and observers
who had the impression the Unit United
ed United States fully intended to re remain
main remain in Antarctica indefinitely.
One high official who asked not
to be named said, "The Russians
