THE EVENING TIMES, MONDAY, MAY 11, 1953 Sayre, Athens, South Waverly, Pa., and Waverly, N.Y.: PAGE TWELVE Jon Lindbergh Finds Big Underwater Cave in Series of Daring Dives Modesto, Calif. (UP) Jon Lindbergh, 20-year-old son of the international flying hero, emulated his father's lone eagle daring with a 150-foot dive into what may be the largest underwater cave in the West. The handsome son of Charles A. Lindbergh, New York-to-Par-is "Lone Eagle," donned a rubber "frogman's" suit and risked his life exploring the inky waters of the cave, located in the high sierras. The young scientist said what he found was "fantastic." . The mouth of the cave opens onto a small lake. But it is obstructed by a 150 foot limestone wall which drops 25 feet into the water . Lindbergh went down and under the wall to get to the submerged lake. " Eugene Ford, a member of a scientific party exploring Bower Cave, 65 miles northeast of here, said Lindbergh made the discovery in one dive Sunday and two Saturday.- "It was an extremely hazardous operation," Ford. said.

A former Navy diver himself, the 27-year-old Ford handled the one-half inch slender nylon cord which was Lindbergh's only link with the world during his dive. Lindbergh said he found an inner cave during Sunday's dive. The opening was under a 25-foot wall and he said the ceiling was at least 50-feet high. Using the special rubber suit, foot flippers attd breathing with an "aqualung" air tank, the young Stanford University marine biology student took with him a special camera and an uninflated life raft. He inflated the raft in the inner cave then sat in it while taking pictures for further study. Exact size of the underwater chamber has not been determined, Ford said. But after the information Lindbergh brought back from his dives, it was believed to be one of the largest in the West: "Lindbergh never encountered any difficulty during the three dives," Ford said. "But even with my experience, I wouldn't want to try it."

Balch Tells How Out of Albany iro (A) Good nro-arri. tion, good candidates and good promotion are what New York State Democrats need to g e t Gov. Dewey ,out of Albany, their chairman says. Richard IT. Balch gave his formula for accomplishing that "most important single task" of the party in a speech Saturday night at a dinner of the Cairo Democratic Club. He accused the Republican governor of ignoring the state's responsibilities in education, of failing to press for improvements in social security, and of using the "whiplash" of rent increases on tenants. Balch told the Grene County Democrats that Dewey was "catering to the milk trust" in remaining silent on a proposal to include Northern New Jersey in the federal milk-marketing order that governs the New York metropolitan milkshed. on a private beach near Hollywood, Fla., 18 miles north of here by a newsman who recognized Bubba, Kathy's partner in the famous "Aquatot" team, as he splashed in the surf.
