Seventeen children and their Sunday school teacher drowned Saturday while on a church picnic'outing when their small boat filled and sank without, warning in a deep lake. Seven of the children were from a single family. Ages of the children ranged from .5 to. 14. The boat, operated by the teacher, Joseph Bouie, 25, plunged under water about 300 feet from, shore. The water was more than: seven feet deep. One child was saved after he clung to !the 14-foot wooden boat. The picnic group, .all Negroes, was from the. Blessed. Hope church near Quincy, a .northwest Florida town about 20 miles north- west of Tallahassee. Alzora Green, who was prepar- ing the picnic lunch, said she saw the disaster from shore.

All but one of the bodies were recovered, within a matter of hours. As divers brought in the bodies, they were stretched out on a grassy spot near the boat landing and sheriff's deputies identified them.
