Searchers Fail To
Find Body Of Baby
After River Drained
22-Months-OId Son Of Mr. And
Mrs. James Heatherly Was
Drowned April 10. Not
(By Ernest Messer.)
The last organized effort to find the
body of little Bruce Heatherly, 22-months-old
son of Mr. and Mrs. James
Heatherly, drowned April 10 in the
muddy waters of the East Fork of
Pigeon River, was made by the Can
ton fire department Saturday, when
the water was pumped from a deep
pond a short distance below where
the child fell in the river.
Many people expected the body to be
found there, but after the water had
been pumped out only mud and trash
were revealed. If the body was there,
it was buried in the soft mud of the
This futile effort was the last hope
of the searchers. Unless the body of
the child is brought to the surface
by the waters of the river, the lost
body will probably never be found."
The people of Springdale communi
ty, the members of the CCC camp at
Sunburst, the fire department and
police department of Canton and many
others are to be commended for their
efforts to find the body of little Bruce.
Without remuneration they worked
diligently to -reveal" the whereabouts
of the drowned boy.
Hundreds of people from other
communities showed, by their fre
quent visits, to the scene of the trag
edy, and by their offers to aid in the
search their interest in the efforts to
rescue the body of the boy, and their
sympathy for the Heatherly family.
" The fate of the body is now in the
embrace of the powerful waters of
Pigeon River. '.'which: holds .secrets of
many other similar tragedies. Time
alone will now accomplish what men
have failed to do.

Representatives of the District
Health Department are now at work
making a survey of the Canton wa
tershed, which is along the east and
west fork of Pigeon river all tne
way to the Transylvania county line,
it was learned from Dr. C. N. Sisk,
who is in charge of the department.
Bonds have been soid for the new
water system for Canton, and the wa
ter will be taken from Pigeon river,
about three-fourths of a mile from tne
city limits, and then filtered and chlo
rinated before stored in the new reser
Approximately 800 homes are on the
watershed that will in the future sup

will have to have sanitation facilities

At present sewerage from the
county home. Bethel school, New Col
lege and other places is put into the
river without treatment, and since
Canton will get water from the river,
all this will have to be treated first,
it was pointed out. .
Four men will be placed on the job
of making the surveys, and it is ex
pected that it will take about a week
or ten days to complete the survey.
