Fred Swanson of Princeton, Iowa,
who has been an employe of the Dravo

his life by cutting his throat this morn

the chances are that he will recover.
He has been boarding in with other em
ployes in a shanty on the island. This
morning about 6 o'clock two fellow
employes entered his bunk room and
found him busy with a dull knire. They
lost no time in taking charge of him
and the would-be suicide was sent to
the city hospital. No motive for the
deed is known.
