supply ship Citta di Milano has no contact with Nobile

Aftenposten contacted Nobile's supply ship Citta di Milano at King's Bay to pick up any news from the Italia. But still no signals from the airship crew. Radio amateurs from Scandinavia have been asked to listen for any radio signals from Nobile and his team.

The British correspondent for the Morning Post and The Scotsman reports that because there will not be any newspapers published in Oslo today and tomorrow, on account of the Whitsuntide holidays, people are gathering outside the newspaper offices to pick up any news about the polar explorers.
