The words, "Eats, help, charcoal," spelled out in that order on the ice with pikepoles and bits of driftwood, told their story to the flyers who dropped hot coffee and sped back to guide the rescuers. Then began the long struggles thru miles of slush ice, across drifting floes and over open water. Five hours after they were first sighted, four of the men and the boy were brot to solid ice and guided across the two miles of ice hills to shore. The rescuers went back for more and all but three had been brot ashore when 'the ice suddenly shifted and the coastguards found themselves in the same plight as those they sought to rescue, and \vere obliged to remain on the ice. until rescued today.'
