Perished From Exposure and Ex
haustion in Small Open Boat
Atlantic City, Nov. 12.-Three
days and nights of the search con
ducted for John Ledbetter and Ray
mond Iszard, the Winchester school
boys who set out on a duck hunting
expedition from Margate City last
Friday morning, .came to a grue
some close Monday morning, at 11 ,
o'clock, a mile off Cape May Ci*5,j
when the bodies of the youths were
found in the bottom of their boat,
faces down, by citizens of Cape
May, out on a fishing expedition.
The bodies, divested of clothes, lay
ir. water which had half filled their
craft. Death was due to exposure
and had come probably Friday
night while they battled desperate
ly- to get their frail boat ashore
through the terrific seas which have
bombarded the coast for the ?a$t
few days. .
It is 'believed that the boys lost
first on? oar and then another in
their efforts to reach land. Panic
stricken, they are believed to have
disrobed and plunged into the sea
in '"an effort to- swim ashore .with
their boat. Becoming exhausted
and numb in the icy water of the
Atlantic, they apparently used .the
little strength left them to climb
back into their oraft, where they
fell exhausted to - miserably perish.

Because,of the length of yester
day's debate. on1 Article X of the

Senate did not take a vote, and this
move was postponed until todaj*.
'fife 'Walsh amendment was ? the
subject of much cr.iicisin and sup
port. Senator. Johnson, California,
inquired of Senator Walsh whether,
if .the irreconcilableopponents of
the' peace treaty voted for the
amendment, the Democrats would
then support the reservation as
Senator Walsh is said to ha\ e
admitted; that plan of the Demo
crats was to support his amend
ment and then ca?t their votes sol
idly against the reservation.
The Walsh amendment wiM have
'almost all-the irreconcilables op
posed' to it.
Senator McCumber, on behalf of
the mild reservation group, told
Senator Hitchcock that if the Walsh
amendment should be voted into the
reservation, it would remain theie
and that their votes would be cast
for the reservation, even if amend
