MESSAGE FROM (

Local Radio Station Recelves Word
Of Arrival Of Dog Team At
Arctic Weather Camp
Bringing supplies to the band of
four men who are spending the winter
in southern Greenland to study mete-
orological phenomena, a dog sled
has arrived at the northern weather
station of the University on Mount
Evans, according to a message to Prof.
William H. Hobbs, of the geology de-
partment, from Paul 0. Oscanyan,
radio operator of the expedition in
Greenland. The message was picked
up by the local short-wave station of
the R. 0. T. C. under the direction of
Lieut. Richard T. Schlosberg, profes-
sor of military- science. It read "Dog,
sled and first shipment arrived, also
mail. Thank You for letter."
"The import of this terse message
from- the radio operator at Mt. Evans
might not be clear to one not familiar
with the plans of the expedition or the
conditions in Grenland today," said'
Professor Hobbs.
"The navigation of Greenland*
waters closes about Nov. 15, and no
ship is willingly caught there after
that date. It is hazardous to cruise
in Greenland waters when the seasoi
Is closed, in part only because of the
few hours of daylight, but mainly be-
cause of the fierce blizzards in which

You, too, will find that LUCKY

STRIKES

give

the greatest pleasure -

Mild and Mellow, the finest cigarettes
you ever smoked. Made of the choicest
tobaccos, properly aged and blended with
great skill, and there is an extra process
-"LT'S TOASTED"-no harshness, not
a bit of bite.
MARY EATON
Popular Musical Comedy Star,
writes:
"It seems that most all the
members of the'Lucky Coat-
pany smoke Lucky Strike
cigarettes, and once I was t:..a
tempted to try one, and I am
glad to say I have enjoyed
them ever'since. I am very
happy to say my throat has
been in perfect condition all
season. Lucky Strike is the
only cigarette for me
