His "cool-hand" approach to poker stood in contrast—or perhaps agreement—with the patient and gentle personality seen by his academic colleagues.

Mr . C. G. Rossby pre- sented a motion picture film illustrating his experiences while on a voyage of the motor ship Conrad Holmboe, to the east coast of Greenland. The ship had been sent to effect a change of per- sonne l for the meteorological station at Scoresby Sound. Its mission very nearly ended tragically for those on board, and did so for those who were to have been relieved. When the Holmboe got within a fe w miles of the station, ice pressure so opened her seams that continuous pumping until she reached Iceland alone saved her. While the ice pres- sure was at its worst, the personnel of the sta- tion were observed setting out in a boat along leads in the ice, were then lost sight of, and have not since been heard from. From the film the audience got clear impressions of the situation of the meteorological station on Jan Mayen at the foot of the snowbound peak of the Beerenberg, which rises some 10,000 feet above the sea that laps its base.
