CANOE HIT SANDBAR They had made it to shore after their canoe struck a sandbar in the river. A fourth man stayed with the canoe and was grounded on a smaller island about eight miles away. The insect-bitten men had been stranded without food for about 10 days. He landed his float-equipped craft on the river and taxied close to shore so the three men could board. They searched only a short while before finding the ether man. "They were sure glad to see him, they thought he was dead." The rescue was "just luck, for them and for me." Randy said in an interview that Fred McCauley "of Wis- consin" was one of those res- cued. He did not give the names of the others. "They're all big business- men. They said they'd do something for me when we were flying back, but you don't believe it until it hap- pens."
