1. Monday Midnight
Three men, Dr. Mason, Jackstrow and Joss, work in a scientific station on the North Pole in Greenland. The place is completely isolated from the rest of the world surrounded by ice and snow. One night when they were already going to sleep, they heard a very loud noise coming from outside. They went out and saw a plane crashing near their station.
2. Monday 1 A.M. to 2 A.M.

They also took a rifle and a gun with them. During the journey two people got very sick, Mahler because he was diabetic and Marie la Garde, an old lady. One of the passengers died during the trip.

They had also caused another accident on a train several years ago for the same reason. Mr. Corazinni and Mr. Smallwood left the group and took with them two people Margaret Rose and Solly Levin. Solly Levin was the father of one of the passengers. They
