In his sweltering Baltimore home -- an un-air-conditioned former Pratt Library branch barely cooled by ceiling fans -- photographer Neelon Crawford sweats. And obsesses about The Ice.Since 1989, Mr. Crawford has made five trips to The Ice, as Antarctica is known, to capture on film the hardy research community that plumbs its glaciers, snow caves, icebergs and plunging crevasses. He photographs, mostly in black-and-white, abstract images of breathtaking natural beauty, the massive machinery of polar exploration, and the people who work there, insulated against the cold in poofy standard-issue parkas and bunny boots.

Werner Herzog is a magnet for obsessives, and his lovely new film, Encounters at the End of the World, takes you places an ordinary documentary filmmaker might've gone to yet missed completely. At the invitation of the National Science Foundation, Herzog traveled to McMurdo Station in Antarctica, a U.S.-run enclave of 1,100 men and women who study the physical environment. We spend time with ecologists, biologists and survival-school instructors who teach people how not to get lost in a blinding snowstorm.

After waiting five days for a rescue plane, a sick employee stationed at the South Pole will be flying out early today to get medical treatment. The Twin Otter rescue plane arrived at the National Science Foundation's Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station at 5:13 p.m. yesterday. The name of the male employee of Raytheon Polar Services based in Centennial, Colo., has not been released. Unconfirmed reports indicate he is suffering from bladder problems that could require surgery. The rescue effort had been delayed for five days because of bad weather.

"It's a macaroni and cheese penguin!" shouted little Jimmy Tarr, in response to a question from an Antarctic explorer who was speaking to the first grade at Eldersburg Elementary School Tuesday."No, it's not a macaroni penguin" (which really does exist, without the cheese), replied Maya Wheelock, a doctoral student in geology from Johns Hopkins University. "It's the biggest penguin. Who knows what kind that is?"(The answer, by the way, is an emperor penguin.)"We read the story of Mr. Popper's Penguins" in January, said Barbara Cohen, a first-grade teacher.

Charles William Mallory, who accompanied Adm. Richard E. Byrd on his last Antarctic expedition and later retired as senior technical adviser to Westinghouse Electric Corp., died of leukemia Saturday at North Arundel Hospital. He was 76. The 37-year resident of the Chartwell community in Severna Park was a newly commissioned ensign when he joined Admiral Byrd's final Antarctic expedition in 1946. During the three-month tour to the Antarctic that extended into 1947, Mr. Mallory was a member of a 4,000-man team that conducted scientific experiments and explored the vast wastes at the bottom of the world.
