: Albatross Camp (Base Camp) ; Mamberamo River
This was another sunshiny day of quiet. Beyond some target practice with the Springfield, there was nothing of particular interest to mark the day. We gave a Dyak a couple of shots with the rifle and he succeeded in severing our clothesline on the river bank. The river continues to rise steadily. We are sorry to see it because it will hamper Hans and Prince in their work on the plane and will slow up the transport work.
