Linden, Alberta. — Waters of the Knee Hill Creek claimed the life of Edric Toews, 17-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. William T. Toews, on Friday afternoon, April 1.

The young man and two companions were boating on the creek when their boat upset. Edric was carried down stream by the current, while the other two were able to swim to shore.

Rescue operations were carried on daily with the aid of skin divers, but up to April 6 the body had not been recovered.
