Swedish balloonist explorer waited for two years on icecaked White island in the futile hope of rescue before he died is entertained by Dr Adolf Hoel head of the Norwegian government research office in Spitsbergen Dr Hoel oro of the most learned men of the north thinks Andree and his companions mav have lived that long on the island where thcL bodies were found this month W years after their disappearance while attempting to fly across the North pole in a balloon I hold it possible he said that Anclreo and his colleagues might have been alive for from one to two years They were well equipped with provisions guns and munitions So it was possible for them to kill walrus which were abundant on the island There were also many birds there At the time when Andree started in his balloon there was very little drifting ice around the island This should exclude the theory that the balloon came further north and that Andree and his comrades tramped across the ice to White island Arctic dispatches today said a great bank ol white fog had de scended over the entire area where the sealer Bratvaag bearing the bodies of Andree and his two com panions is supposed to be In addition to the danger which this may indicate for the sealer itself considerable concern was felt that vessels searching for the craft to put doctors and scientists aboard her and arrange preservation of the bodies before she reached a warmer climate may not find her and will have to return to Tromsoe IOWA WEATHER Partly cloudy possibly local thunderstorms slightly warm er in central and northeast portions
