Out of the Depths
Kenneth Adam
On April 20, 1936, the rescue was announced of two men, Dr. Robertson and Mr. Alfred Scadding , from their entombment in a gold mine at Moose River, Canada. For over a week, rescue parties had toiled feverishly to reach the imprisoned men. This afternoon Kenneth Adam will recall this incident, which aroused wide interest throughout the New World and in Europe, and will also talk about other near escapes and adventure thrills of recent times.
