BYRD BARK ns THRfIDGHSLUSH ICE Ship Pushes Toward Dunedin and Home at Steady Clip. BY BUSSELL OWEN. By Radio to The Star and the New York Time*. ABOARD THE BARK CITY OF NEW YORK. Ross Sea, February 21.—For the past SO hours, since leaving the harrier, the City of New York has been steaming steadily toward New Zealand and home. We have followed the Ross ice bar rier as far as Discovery Inlet, taking our departure from that point and by noon yesterday had reached a position about 'SO miles northwest of Discovery Inlet. During the night the ship passed through an area of slush and new pan cake ice and probably Just got out in time. Bv morning all this had been passed We now are making good time, though at present a light head wind has sprung up which prevents using sail. Since leaving the barrier, a steady rise in temperature has been noted. 'Copyright. 1930, by the New York Times Co and the St. Lout* Post-DUpatch.

NEW YORK, February 21.—Rear | Admiral Richard E. Byrd and members of his party, now en route to Dunedin. New Zealand, from the Antarctic, are expected to reach New York during the first week in June. The explorer’s ahip, the City of New York, on which he now is starting the 12.000 mile voyage home, left this port August 25, 1928. The trials of the expedition are be lieved to be nearly over and little diffi culty is expected when the ship, which will be met probably within a week and thereafter accompanied or fol lowed by the Eleanor Bolling, en counters the Ross Sea ice pack, now at its Midsummer ebb. The City of New York expects to reach the Ice Sunday. The ice pack, about 800 miles wide in the Antarctic Winter, is now be lieved to be less than 100 miles in width, and the City of New York is ex pected to duplicate its feat on its re cent trip to the ice barrier, when it encompassed the pack in 37 hours. The ship will probably reach the pack by Sunday. The Eleanor Bolling, now about 800 miles from the Barrier. Is bringing coal for the City of New York, which will be transferred as soon as they meet on the northern edge of the pack. The two ships will then proceed together and the Eleanor Bolling, as she has done before, may tow her slower sister ship. The average daily speed of the Eleanor Bolling ia 200 miles and that of the City of New York 110 miles. Due in Dunedin by March 15. Although the distance from New York to the Barrier is about 9,000 miles, the circuitous route of the two ships, which will be, it is expected, much the same as on the southern trip, will carry them over 12,000 miles. The first stop will be Dunedin, New Zealand, about 2,300 miles from the Bay of Whales. The ships will probably reach Dunedin to gether 21 to 24 days from the departure of the City of New York from the ice barrier, about March 12 or 15. The last southern trip of the City of New York, from Dunedin to the Bar rier. took from January 5 to February 18. but this length of time was necessi tated by delay in finding leads through the pack and then a storm blowing the ship far west of her course. At Dunedin three members of the expedition will be met by their wives. Joe De Ganahl, mate of the City of New York and a resident of Little America during the whole stay, will be met by his wife, whose home is in Scarsdale. She is already there, as are the wives of Capt. Ashley McKinley of St. Louis, the expedition’s aerial pho tographer, and of Lloyd Berkner of Washington, D. C„ the City of New York radio operator. Berkner's wife joined him in June at Tahiti, whither he had gone following the return of the City of New York from the Byrd base. Itinerary on Home Voyage. The ships will probably stay at Dunedin for a week or 10 days in order that the City of New York may be overhauled. They will both take on more coal and are expected to leave separately, the Eleanor Bolling several days after the City of New York. If the City of New York leaves Dunedin about March 22, as is likely, and takes the same time as she did in 1928. when she left Tahiti on Novem ber 2 and arrived in Dunedin, about 2,712 miles distant, on November 25, she should reach Tahiti about April 14. The Eleanor Bolling, unless close to her, should reach there several days in advance. The chances are that the two ships will remain in Tahiti for from 24 to 48 hours for coaling and any needed overhauling. The next lap wiU be from Tahiti to the Panama Canal. This is the longest stretch, being about 4,509 miles. The ships probably will reach the canal, stopping there a short pe riod for coaling, on or about May 15. The final leg of the voyage to New York, about 2,211 miles, will then be made. They probably will arrive to gether, any time from the Ist to the 7th of June. It is impossible to estimate exactly how long the northbound trip will take because allowances must be made for shifting winds and unforeseen de lays. It has not been learned whether any of the expedition's members will • return by other ships. DISCOVER NEW LANDS. Norwegian Fivers Map 115 Miles of Antarctic Area. OLSO, Norway, February 21 (TP).— Wireless message from the Norwegian exploration ship Norwegia, now in the Antarctic, today said the expedition Monday located new land between Enderby Land and Coata Land on the northern fringe of Antarctica.

La Facia and Treska were arrested in Akron and brought here at once, but Detective Slater said nothing had been found to substantiate Hannah's previous claims that they were involved, and that the Akron men would •be released by Mayor A. V. Wrigant of Orrville. “Hannah said he couldn’t even iden tify La Facia and Treska,” Slater said. According to the detective.
