But Barney and Pomp, the t11 o trusty colleague s of Frank held the gate v aliantly, and baftled all attempts of thi s i:.ort. I would 8 till marvel at the wonderful triumphs which he achieved. Not :;atisfied with having ma:;tered the art of flying in the air, he m uot needo overcome the problem of l=lubmarine n avigation.
