Overcome Winter Difficulties.
New York.—No ice pack hereafter
will prevent a successful season's catch
o f seals.
Aeroplanes have been en­
gaged by the sealing companies of the
northern states and Canada, with ex­
pert aviators to help locate the herds.
Tbe preparation for the coming sea­
son have been thrust upon sealers by
the disastrous ice conditions along the
eastern coast and the gulf o f 8t. L aw ­
rence. All last winter constant Inshore
winds piled hummocks o f Ice wherever
the water shallowed.
These high walls of broken Ice pre­
vented the lookouts on the sealing
steamers and sailing vessels frem lo­
cating the seal herds. As a result the
catch was one o f the smallest on rec­
ord. the total being lest than 50,000
pelts. This has meant a financial loes
to the sealing companies o f not less
than $250,000.
Cruising along the shores, the a e r »
planes will follow scouting tactlca. not
only locating the herds, but returning
to the vessels and piloting them to
tbe navigable channels through the ice.
As these "leads" change from hour to
hour, the need for the a v ta ty la con­
stant.
This will prevent fruitless
months of search on the part o f th«
sailing vessels.
Moreover, the aeroplanes will b « able
to report adverse tee conditions at a
distance, so that vessels w ill be able to
make their way to a point of safety
before the heralded Ice pack comes
down to crush them. This alone will
mean the saving o f many veaaels, an­
nually caught by the treacherous floe.
