Locatelli Flight Still Missing

Daily Report

by Lt. L. P. Arnold, "Chicago", Mechanic

For a short while in the morning it was clear here, but at the same time it was foggy at Ivigut so we waited for that to clear & in the meantime made al preparations to leave. But then it became foggy here & grew worse as the day continued.

Icebergs of all kinds float up and down the fjord & a motor boat is on guard all the time to push them away. While sitting in the planes this morning Harding ["New Orleans" mechanic] & I saw a berg, only a hundred yards away, turn over. It rolled and wobbled about for over five minutes and was quite a sight. Alongside the Island Falk a huge berg parked & we decided to climb aboard it to take pictures, etc. -- but after seeing the other berg perform we changed our minds.

The officers of the Falk treated us more royally than ever & this evenings entertainment was mostly impersonations by "Bill Boyd" & "Radio Joe."

All day we expected to hear something from Locatelli but no news came at all -- our guess being that he is somewhere on, or near, the eastern coast.
