II nal By VIVIEN OLSON LILLIWAUP - Dick Van Bevers rescued three young men when their 8 foot pram capsized in the stormy waters off Ayock Point last Saturday. The young son of Mr. and Mrs. Carr, who have a cabin at Stetson's Beach, brought two of his friends to spend the weekend at the cabin. Saturday, despite the high winds and huge waves, the three young people took the boat out. About fifty yards beyond Ayock Point, the boat capsized. Van Bevers, who has a home at Ayock Beach, happened to be watching and saw the accident. He put his boat in the water and started to the rescue. The youngest boy clung to the overturned pram, while the older two tried to swim to shore. Due to the extreme cold and rough water, they couldn't make mucb headway. When Van Bevers Missionary To Speak Here Rev. and Mrs. Lewis Ziegler, missionaries for some 16 years to the Red Blanket tribes of South Africa, will be in the Shelton Foursquare Church for a missionary conference this weekend, Friday at 7:30 p.m. and for both services Sunday, 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. Rev. Mr. Ziegler was born of missionary parents in South Africa and after completing high school there, came to the United States to attend Bible College. He pastured for several years in the States before going back to missionary work. There will be missionary displays and artifacts. They will also show films of their work. reached them they were on the point of collapse. Said Van Bevers, "I don't know how I did it. I just knew I had to get them into the boat. One of the fellows kept saying he couldn't make it he was so cold. I had to literally drag them up into my boat." Not too easy a task, especially considering none of the young people seemed able to help themselves, and one of them was quite a sizeable young man. After they were safely in the boat, one young man seemed most concerned over the loss of his father's gun which he had had in the boat, and which was subsequently lost overboard. Another neighbor, Dick Theobald aided Van Bevers in getting the young people into a warm place and out of their wet things. Sunday the three came to thank Van Bevers for his help before they returned to their homes. Young Car, lives in Cosmopolis and the other two young men were from Aberdeen. So all ended well despite the loss of the gun and the pram. And three young men, two whose names he didn't even know, probably owe their lives to Van Bevers. ges Against Youl Charges were dismissed in Mason County Superior Court here Friday in a case which was to have been on the jury calendar this week.
