A Heroic Act. Some of those who Btudled fragments ot the water-soaked log of the A-8698, found in the rigging of the gas bag when it was picked up Saturday, pretond to see In the few decipherable entries an heroic eplo of lake and air. Piecing out the log as beat thoy can, these lake men l>elieve thoy can reconstruct, with fair accuracy, the flight, the storm, the wracking of the balloon and the death of the two naval officers. Lieut. Null leaped overboard Into the storm-tossed lake, giving himself as human ballast In an effort to save the life of Lieut. Roth, the pilot, according to tho story thoy aee in tho log. Tossed All Ballast Ovsr. Tracing the flight, they boliovo a storm Thursday night or Friday morning drove the big bag perilously close to the waters ot tho lake. The two lieutenants tossed overboard all ballast. Th'e bag roao, but, caught In the fury ot the storm, was again forced toward the water. — Clothing and everything remaining that could be thrown ovurboard, was removed, but the danger did not lessen. Then Lieut. Null, true to the traditions of the American navy, leaped from the basket and sank from sight, believing that the balloon, relieved of his weight, would rise and giva Roth a fighting chnneo for his life. - Leaped to 8ave Pal, Later, Lieut. Both began hacking, cutting and chopping at the ropos that hold the basket to tho bag. Ills only hope of safety lay in getting tho basket clear from tho bag which, buf- fetod by a wind ot gale proportions, was dragging it through tho water. He succeeded but was probably so weak from his exertions that he waa unable to toko advantage of tho small measure of safety provided by keeping Inside tho basket, and was tossed about until ha drowned. An indelible pencil was used la writing tha log and tho words in most cases are but a purple blur. Tho story of the tragedy, as pieced together hero, is based on the condition in which the bag and basket were found, the weather, the direction of tho wind, and the few decipherable purple scrawls in tie iag.
