News that Olivr-r Moo. for many years an Algona meat dealer, then for many more years a local grocor. had had a narrow escape from drowning on the Florida gulf coast was received in a let lor from Mrs. Moe last weekend. Mrs. Moe, who, with Oliver, lives at Clearwnter, Fla.. wrote: "On Wednesday, July 19, Oliver and I drove to Sunset Beach. St. Petersburg, where our daughter, Mrs. Marguerite Kencfick. lives. The distance was 17 miles. We were to spend the day with her, and incidentally I was to go bathing. The beach Nprtl?

"It was the understanding that Oliver was not to try swimming. Though in youth he was a good swimmer, we? knew that he was no longer in condition for it. As tor me, 1 cannot swim a stroke. Swims, Loses Consciousness. "Oliver and I donned bathing j suits, but he was only to play , around in the water close to shore. Marguerite was to go with us, but she had some cooking on the stove, so she told us to go on | and she would join us in a few ' minutes. "The water there is shallow for a long way out and it was calm that morning. The air and water temperatures were just right and the beach there is simply 'grand.' i "The urge to swim as he did so many years ago seized Oliver, who waded out past me and then began to swim. I called to him to come back, and he turned, but immediately he slopped swimming, and then I saw that his head was under water. j Rescued by Mrs. Moe. [ "Frantically 1 started to wade out to him though the water got deeper at every step and it was about all I could do to keep my feet. Finally I reached and seized an arm. He was unconscious, but floating, and I started to drag him to shore, meanwhile culling for help. I "Fortunately there were some people bathing less than 100 yards away, and they responded at once, reaching shore at the same moment that I did. They knew what to do in a drowning case, and in a half hour of work on him they revived Oliver. "We at once took Oliver to St. Anthony's hospital at St. Petersburg, and he was in fair condition there till the next night, when pneumonia developed. All next day he was very low, but the doctors ' gave him a sulfa drug, and on the following morning July 22 he began to improve. Ever since then he has continued to improve, and now we hope to be able to bring him home on or about August 1."
