Not Bad At All'
Hillary Shrugs off
South Pole Victory
SOUTH POLE, Jan. 4 (UP) Sir Edmund Hillary today shrugged off as "not
bad at all" his 1200-mile trek with four companions across the icy wastes of the
Antarctic continent to the South Pole.
The conqueror of Mt. Everest arrived at the South Pole yesterday from the
Ross Sea coast but his group was too tired to continue the two miles to the U. S.
South Pole base. They pitched camp for the night and came on this morning.
Hillary's "rivgfl," in & race across the Antarctic from the opposite coast, Dr.
Vivian Fuchs, was reported about 70 miles from the Pole today. His 12-man expedi expedition
tion expedition was reported having motor trouble after great difficulties with the terrain.
Lt. Vernon Houk of Firebaugh Calif., commander of this base, and Dr. P. Mogen Mogen-sen,
sen, Mogen-sen, Danidflh-born scientific leader of the Inter-National Geophysical year station here,
went out to greet the New Zealanders on the trail.
Fuchs cabled his party was
moving at 5,800 feet above sea
level "after 100 punishing miles
of sastrugi (high, pointed humps
of ice)" that gave his men "too
few hours of sleep."
The 38-year-old Hillary, a bee
keeper turned adventurer, made
it with only one drum of gasoline
remaining after a trek of 1,200
miles from the Ross Sea coast.
He and1 his four companions left
the New Zealand base on Nov. 24.
By Christmas Day, they had
reached Depot 700, which is 700
miles from McMurdo Sound,
where the U.S. Antarctic base is
On Christmas Day, he decided
on a "hell-bent dash" for the pole.

A MAID'S JOB
$20 a month and three square meals a day. That's a fine
joke. "A Housewife' (Mall Box, Jan. 2) should be ashamed to
state In print that she hired her maid to scrub floors, bake
eakes, etc., for such a measly wage.
I dont know where "A Housewife" lives, but I'm speaking
for myself and other maids who work at Albrook, and mainly
those of us who work for officers' families. Our' three meals a
day consist of a cup of coffee and a slice of toast for break breakfast,
fast, breakfast, a measly sandwich for lunch and a glass of iced tea and
God bless the supper.
The laundry we have to do consists of five, and sometimes
six, khaki uniforms a week, to say nothing of the other clothes.
Then when we try to get out the clothes these folks mess up
the house disgracefully and wear more clothes than is neces necessary,
sary, necessary, Just to see us working all day. They even try to deprive
the cleaners of their bread by giving us their husband's pants
to do, saving off vs.
There are some unfortunate Spaniards who come from the
Interior and have no relatives in Panama. These P'Jor things,
having no place to live, are forced to accept $20 and are glad
to live in. The folks they work for take advantage of them.
It's a shame the way they push them around. Then the house housewives
wives housewives walk from house to house drinking coffee and boasting
how much they save off their maids.
There Is a case right now in which the poor, over-worked
maid weighed 110 lbs. when she took the job, and was down
to 87 lbs. when the left. Isn't this a barbarous act in the
sight of God?
I know what I say will sting a lot of Albrook folks. I am
hoping that most of all it will sting the folks I am working
for. They feel they are paying me a fortune, and I know they
are not paying me enough for the work I have to do.
"A Housewife" asks how we would like working for Pan Panamanians.
amanians. Panamanians. This is an ignorant question, because if we all did
wno would the Americans get to look after their kids when the
parents have to be running all over the place?
One lady I know of has six kids. She does no work, yet
she leaves the home each day at 8 a.m. to visit her friends.
She expects her maid to care for her baby and the other small
kidSjj and to do the cooking and everything.
There's much more A could write, but let another "House "Housewife"

to smile in the conditions we must work under. Give us our
due wage and decent treatment, and we will smile all day, all
