Last month grief at the death of Princess Victoria his sister. Affected his spirits. I the King s illness was announced to i ? Public broadcast message a minute before Midnight dance music faded out and the announcer with emotion in his voice said before we close Down i want to read a bulletin about the i King s health a 1ecest we Mjune of Kinka of silence of Antarctic fliers due to sending switch fault graphic Story from Rescue ship Melbourne saturday. Lincoln Ellsworth the american explorer and his com Panion Hallock Kenyon Are Safe aboard the australian Rescue ship discovery ii. Kenyon is Well but Ellsworth is reported to be suffering from a severe cold. From Kenyon the men of the discovery Learnt the reason for Ellsworth s mysterious silence of nearly two months. The transmitter switch of the radio apparatus had failed and the explorers had been unable to get Mes sages through to the Wyatt Earp. Their base ship. Sighted five Miles away from the Bay of whales by either flying officer Mur Doch or flight Lieut Douglas piloting the Moth plane from the discovery Kenyon made his Way to the ship reaching it at 5 pin. On january 16. The same night a land party went in search for Ellsworth and met him As he was forcing his Way across the ice to the discovery. The Secretary of state for the United states has cabled the government s gratification at the discovery s Rescue of Ellsworth and Kenyon and thanks the British government and the dominions for their Fine co operation in locating the missing explorers. How the ship s Rescue party after meeting Kenyon later met Lincoln Ellsworth and took them both aboard was told in a message from the Dis covery ii. Today. The minister of defence or. Park Hill said that the following message had been received from the ship s com Mander on the arrival of the discovery at Bay of whales an Orange coloured tent was seen on the Barrier face. A rocket was fired and was answered. The Moth plane then flew towards Little America five Miles Distant Kenyon came oat from the hut and we dropped letters by Para Chute.

The american airmen had run out of fuel 20 Miles South of Little America and pledged in. The transmitter switch was the cause of the radio failure repaid by . Good feeling even if Ellsworth and Kenyon had been in no danger but had been adhering to their Normal schedule of ground exploration work at Little America the australian expedition was very much Worth while in the opinion of or. R. E. Priestley experienced Polar explorer and vice Chancellor at Melbourne University. Ellsworth and his companion May have been awaiting the arrival of the Wyatt Earp on january 21. On the other hand there has been just As reasonable a basis for assuming that they were in distress said or. Priestley. The absence of wireless signals when it was known that Ellsworth s plane had modern equipment was one very Dis quieting feature. Again news from the Wyatt Earp indicated that its Comman Der was genuinely disturbed by Ells Worth s continued silence. When Ellsworth s Early signals died away radio experts both Here and in America could Advance no explanation for the failure of his Short wave equipment other than that of a crash so seriously did the commander of the Wyatt Earp View the position that he faithfully carried out the provisions of a predetermined emergency pro gramme by laying Down stores in Wes Tern Antarctica. He then proceeded round the coast in the Hope that Ellsworth s flight had been successful and that he would pick him up at Little America or. Priestley added that humanity demanded thai search plans be put in hand As soon As possible. It was appropriate that Australia being the nearest nation to Antarctica should have made the gesture. 1 the Money Australia has spent on the expedition will be amply repaid by the Rood feeling aroused in the United states by our Early decision followed by our practical proof that we would do every thing possible for the Rescue he Aid. Tactically the voyage of the Dis covery ii. And the reconnaissance work of the . Men had been perfect rhe commander had steamed along the Meridian which was free of ice and had performed a remarkable feat of navigation to get a steel ship from Dunedin to the Bay of whales in three Days. The Wyatt Earp had had to go round the coast where the ice was heaviest and it was doubtful if she could have arrived at Little America by january 21.
