Italian World Fliers Rescued
after 3 Days Adrift

Daily Report

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

It was a rainy, windy, and cold day and as usual we were wet & chilled but having been so so many times noticed it but little -- but nevertheless, assisted by a crew of sailors we spent the day on the beach where the old motors were removed & the new ones set in. By tomorrow night they should be all connected up & ready for a trial hop.

Capt. Penney [Captain of the cruiser Milwaukee] entertained us at dinner which was a fine one. Movies were to have been the evenings entertainment but the rain prevented that so we sat around playing the Victrola & later had waffles & coffee.

Good news greeted us first thing this morning -- it being that at midnight the Richmond had picked up Locatelli & his crew -- 90 miles east of Cape Farewell. His plane was sunk & perhaps we, better than anyone else, can appreciate how he feels regarding that & also how he feels in having been picked up after drifting so long in a section of the world where boats so seldom travel.
