Three vessels ol the • Eastern group—the seaplane tender pine .Island, destroyer Brosvnson and oiler Canisleo—ivere in the Wcdtlell Sea when they sent word to this command ship ot Task Force 03 'that they were "folding up." They are finishing operation-! during which they cruised 38,0311 'miles of Antarctic sea' coast and launched exploratory flying boats across the ice pack into the unknown continental areas. Bad ;: ,weather and increasingly •low temperatures prevented their completing cmy flights into the mysterious .ice-.wasteland South of the,.
