Stanley Boskey, 38 year old farm hand, was drowned last Sunday while swimming in a lake near Arlington. Three Fremont firemen responded to a call for a pulmoter, but were unsuccessful in their efforts at reviving the victim.

Leo Wiedum, Wayne Normal college athlete, recovered the body after considerable diving. Boskey had worked for Eli Kruger only a week and was practically a stranger.

He carried U. S. army discharge papers which showed he enlisted in Minneapolis Sept. 15, 1917, and was in service at the quartermasters corps at Camp Deming, N.M. until Dec. 21. 1918.

County Attorney Mencke was called and took charge of the case and immediately started a search for his relatives and friends.
