MARFA, July 26.—</P)—Two soldiers marooned tm a high ledge above the flooding Rio Grande river in dangerous Santa Helena canyon In the Texas Big Bend country were found by searching parties tonight. The searchers, in charge of Sergeant Stephen Artell of Fort D. A. Russell, the men's home post, dropped food and water 1,500 feet to the men, but planned no attempt at rescue tonight. By long distance telephone the party reported to the post that a third soldier who entered the canyon on a week-end attempt to negotiate the Rio Grande in automobile inner tubes, was still missing. Searchers feared he had drowned. The missing man. private Harry Buckman. and the two on the ledge, Sergeant Clyde Rvberg and Private Clarence Hansen, drove with two companions, John McGovern and David Wise, to the head of the canyon below Lajitas Saturday. They were on leave from Fort D. A. Russell. It was planned that three of them would attempt to ride the Rio Grande through the canyon on inner tubes. They estimated it would require IO hours to make the trip. Buckman, Ryberg and Hansen set out on the dangerous journey, McGovern and Wise drove IO miles downstream to await their companions, but the adventurers did not appear on time, and McGovern and Wise grew uneasy. Finally, an inner tube was sighted. On lf was a note saying Ryberg and Hansen were marooned and could not complete the trip and Buckman was missing, possibly drowned.
