Full Text

Miss Reta Glass, aged 16, of 99 Myrtle Avenue, Hamilton, was drowned in the lake about 7 miles from St. Catharines about 9 o'clock Wednesday night, and Murray Tait, aged 19, of 617 Gerrard Street east, her companion in the canoe which capsized, was rescued by Captain Blanchard and the crew of Dalhousie City and taken to Toronto. The girl's body was not recovered. This young couple rented a canoe from Tommy Wilcox at Grimsby Beach about 3 o'clock to go for a paddle. At six o'clock they had not returned and the lake was very turbulent. Search parties went out from the Beach at Grimsby but no trace of the canoe or its occupants could be found. Miss Glass went to her watery grave when she lost her hold on the life-line thrown her from Dalhousie City.
