      David Judge Hughes, five year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles E Hughes, who have a summer home on the East SIde of Lake Maxinkuckee, was drowned last Wednesday afternoon in the lake when he fell through the newly frozen ice.

      When his mother missed the youngster a thorough search was started and his little wagon was found on the shore of the lake.

      Lloyd Wilson, Charles Cowen and Howard Oberlin broke their way through the ice in a boat until they came to a hole in the surface. Ther in about seven feet of water that found the body near the surface, bouyed by air under the boy's heavy coat. Attempts to resuscitate were futile.
