By Yellit
Paul C. Oscanyan, Jr., radio opera-
tor on the second University Green-
land expedition, shown above with his
radio-courted fiance, Miss Astrid Fun-
der of Copenhagen, is now spending
a quiet spring aboard the Danish
motor-ship Disko, stuck in an ice-pack
off the southern coast of Greenland,
while his fiance, his parents, and the
rest of the wedding party are pa-
tiently waiting in Copenhagen.
Oscanyan left the Mt. Evans weather
observatory of the University on
March 21 to be sure and catch the
Disko at Holstensborg, a mush of 100
miles away. The ;Disko was some-
thing more than a week late. Then
when he finally got started for the
church, some 2,100 miles across the
sea, the vessel ran into floating ice
and became firmly wedged in the pack.
Oscanyan, meanwhile, is praying for
a north wind which is the only thing
that will free the ship until the sum-
mer sun melts the ice in June or
July.
Oscanyan met Miss Funder, who is
the daughter of the director of the
Copenhagen school of navigation,
aboard the Disko last summer as the
Hobbs expedition was enroute from
Copenhagen to Holstensborg. Miss
Funder was radio operator for the
Disko.
Courtship By Radio
When they parted at Holstensborg
it was noticed by members of the ex-
pedition that Oscanyan and Miss Fun-
der danced the entire evening togeth-
er at a party given by the local
Danish officials. It was also noticed
that Oscanyan at Mt. Evans received
letters and candy whenever the Disko
passed the mouth of Kangendlugssdak
fjord, and that he spent long hours
in the evening listening to the long-
wave set of the Disko, although he
maintained a forced silence because
the long wave outfit on the Disko
could not take his short wave sig-
nals._
Ralph L. Belknap of the geology de-
partment, however, solved the diffi-
culties of two day communication be-
tween the Disko and Mt. Evans by
wave receiver when he left Greenland
taking Miss Funder a spare short
last September on his way bae
the University.

iway' the difficulties of the courtship,
Miss Funder, it was noticed by th
members of the expedition aboard the
Disko, burned a lot of midnight whale
blubber conversing in dots and dashes
with Mt. Evans, sending long wave
and receiving Oscanyan's replies in
short wave.
The same thing happened the se-
coed night. On the third day Pro-
fessor William H. Hobbs, director of
the expedition, requested everyone to
grab hold of something solid and an-
nounced that Miss Funder and Os-
canyan were engaged.
Meanwhile much merriment was oc-
casioned radio operators in the neigh-
borhood, all of whom had. long-wave
sets. Missing Oscanyan's short-wave
half of the amorous dialogue that had
been put upon the air, they sent quer-
ies to Miss Funder, asking what her
idea was in broadcasting what she
was broadcasting.
Amateur Hears Proposal
It also happened that a short wave
amateur in New Jersey picked up Os-
canyan's "Will you marry me?" and
was able to give first news of the be-
trothal to Oscanyan's parents who
reside in New York. The wedding
date was set for May 20, or sometime
after, and tile Oscanyan family went
to Copenhagen for the nuptials. They
still are in Copenhagen.
Oscanyan's still more sorry plight was
contained in a radiogram received
here Tuesday night by Professor
Hobbs, and signed by Oscanyan and
Bangsted. Bangsted was also a mem-
ber of last year's expedition, and led
a hazardous expedition inland in mid-
winter over the ice-cap to set up a
temporary meteorlogical station on the
ice. He is the father of a new baby,
born while he was on the expedition,
whom he is anxious to see, and who
is anxious to see him. Both father
l and baby are praying For the same
north wind that will start the wedding
bens ringing for Oscanyan.
