Body Found by Earl Lute.
With a motorboat, 'containing , a
SUimir Pomona and numerous small
craft within bailino diatanee. Ralph
Burd, twelve years of sge. son of Wil
liam Burd, of ElyviHe, was drowned
Wednesday morning, after his chum
had thrice risked his life In efforts
to rescue the lad.
Never Io the history of Oregon City
has anyone been drowned under more
peculiar circumstances, and the- won
der now Is that the boy's Vti tboi:'.;
have been sacrificed. The hero com
panion of the dead lad Is Kenneth
Morrison, also of Elyvtlle, . Not nntll
he had beouvijrewn under the water
three times, and was completely ex
hausted from his battle with the
drowning lad did he relinquish bis
efforts to save his friend, and It was
only by the most desperate attempt
that be reached shallow water. He
was cairied to the shore by men who
had witnessed the tragedy.
Goes to Chum's AioV
' The Burd and Morrison boys, the
latter also only twelve years of age,
left their homes early Wednesday for a
4miT!jlr,.miitltor3 did not know
where they were going, but. It Is said,
they bad no idea the lads were going
to the river.- After playing about In '
the water" on the West Side neir
Twelfth street for somftftne, Ralph.
who could not swim, drifted into deep
water. He managed to keep on the
surface for several minutes, but hid
desperate strugeninRS' drove htm near,
er the center of the river. The boy
yelled or help and bis chum swam
tO him. .' -v.-:---..:
For time Kenneth seemed to bo
winning the fight, but the other boy
kept striking out wildly with hla arms
and finally seized his friend about the
neck. They anfc but Kenneth freed
himself sni rss to- the surface. A
second later Ralph, also came tip, and
agsin Kenneth seized him. .. Thr was
another struggle and once mors the
boys sank. - They came to the surface
again, Kenneth still holding firmly
to the drowning boy, who clung des
perately to the other's neck. Try aa
h would thB heroio lad could not
shako off his friend, or free himself
so aa to use hi arms, and they went
under for the third time.. The MorrL
son boy freeing himself, with all the-'
strength he could command struggled
to the, shallow water, and Ralph did
not corns to the surface sgaln.
By this time J, O. Herford, of 414
Taylor afreet; Portland, who, wltn his
wife and several friends, was passing
in a motorboat realised the true situa
tion and hastened to the place where,
the body had sunk.
They had thought nntll the Burd boy
did not rise the last time that the
lads had been playing. It would hare
been an easy matter for them to bare
made the rescue had they known the
lad was drowning, Mr. Heryford, who
frequently comes to this city in bis,
motorboat. had often seen boys bath
ing whore the accident occurred, and
knowlnr how thev - nlav - and take
chances In the water had no reason
to think the Burd lad was drowning
until It was too late to save him. It
has been customary for lads from one
side of the river to meet swimmers
from the other side In midstream and
wrestle In the water. In, their play
tbey bare often called for aid to ex
cite passers by In boats.
The news of the accident aoon
spread through . the city, and more
than 100 persons hurried to tlw beach
from which the boys had gone Info
t the river. At least a dozen dived In
futile efrorta ror the body, among them
being Edward Buscli and J. B. Wal

and R. W. Baker, who hurried to the
beach In an automobile were among
