Knight, too, who was with Stefansson on long sledge
journeys over the ice and has had on opportunity to

Whatever the status of Wrangel Island, a ship will
be sent there this summer, and the world will await with

records which may be found should they have met the fate
of countless prionears in all lands before them.

There is still a possibility that they might have
crossed on the ice to Siberia in the late spring of this
year. That would be comparatively easy. Once on the
Siberian coast they would be in a fairly populous country
