Chester Waltz was drowned near Storer's Wharf Wednesday noon. Mr. Waltz was rowing a small skiff in order to reach his boat which had been launched on the opposite side of the river. The skiff filled rapidly with water and sank 10 feet off shore. Mr. Waltz was unable to swim and although a number of people saw the accident none were dear enough to aid. The river was dragged and the body recovered in about two hours. Mr. Waltz was the only son of Mr. and Mrs. Lendon Waltz and is survived by his parents and six sisters.
