The ship fought with full power to free herself. ,I Steel side plates of the ship were under continuous hammering and large "l" beams bent and groaned. One large berg wanted to occupy the same area of the world the Arneb was occupying. Seams ruptured and cracks appeared in the hull --- and gallons of sea water poured into the ship. Repair crews fought the Antarctic attack working in 29-degree water for hours that seemed endless. And the Captain remained onthe bridge, ever watchful, refusingto "give up the ship" although at times the situation seemed helpless. Trapped for 48 hours, "The Big Squeeze" ushered in a "Happy New Year" for the Arneb without a "fond adieu" to the old. ICEBERG PARADE OF . .Arneb, stranded, watches menacing review.

Flooding being controlled Shudder To Shelter Damage control parties and repair crews went into action immediately when water poured into the Arneb's holds endangering the cargo destined for Cape Hallett and Knox Coast. The Underwater Demolition Detachment ofTeam 'f2l went into the holds to investigate the extent of the damage from the pressure ice, and searched in 29-degree water four to twelve feet deep for areas needing repairs. Damage control central recorded the damage as reports from the investigators came in. The bridge was informed and soon the extent ofthe damage to the ship was tabulated. The s'hip's propeller had been damaged , 99 frames had been bent, the rudder twisted I8 de- grees, several cracks were found in the hull, and the former hole in the starboard hull seam below the waterline had been reopened. On the deck ten pumps, including three "high- lined" from the Northwind nearby pulled water out of the holds. The damage control parties were I I I I workingaroundthe clock but the ship, still in herI helpless condition in the pressure ice, lay vulner- able to the treacherous icebergs passing by. We were in serious trouble until early in the morning of January Zwhena crack appeared in the ice, and the Arneb, with the Northwind's help, broke loose from Antarctica's stranglehold and reachedthe shelter ofCape Hallett to bandage her wounds .
