Mr. Ludovic Will Fly to the Far Aleutians
He Was Snowed Out of Yukon Country After 8 months on Haines Highway
P. C. Ludovic will leave Neillsville early next week for the far Aleutians. He will fly from Seattle, going from there a distance roughly equivalent to the width of the United States. This will presumably land him in a spot which was once hot for the Japs, and from which more heat will probably be poured on the Japs.
Mr. Ludovic has been up in the Yukon Country, and has enjoyed the relatively mild weather there. He experienced no wintry weather below zero, but he was absolutely snowed out. The snow drifted to a depth of 21 feet, and put completely out of service the Haines Highway, which he was helping to service. SO it became necessary to give up the Haines route, and the men attempting to maintain it were pulled out of there.
Mr. Ludovic gives evidence of having made the most of the Yukon Country. He has added 14 pounds of weight at least part of which came from the big steaks which the home folks do not enjoy. If steaks are scarce and rationed here, they were plentiful and un-rationed up there. And at **Rest Cut off.***
