Title Frozen Stiff
Description this hole in the ice, when the strip I was standing on gave way. I was plunged into the stream and was immediately swept downstream, feet first. raster than T can tell about i1, 1 was plunged unoer the ice. The last instant before completely disappearing under the ice, I put ray hands up and caught the edge of the cold water took my breath away, so I could not call for help. It would not have done much good anyway as there was no one that would hear me since I was down in up for my two friends, they were nowhere to be seen. They thought I was a "goner" and being frightened at my sudden disappearance, they had both run for home. I out from under the ice I looked up for help. Standing on the bank was a man with a familiar, friendly face, self out?" I managed to say, "Yes!" I struggled to my feet, bracing against the current, lest I fall under again. I scrambled up the icy rock bank and looked, but the man was gone. I shuffled the two blocks home the best not bend my legs or arms because my clothes were frozen stiff. I could not open the front door, but managed to kick it a little bit. Soon Mother came down the hall and opened it. She quickly pulled me into the warm and had me change to some dry warm clothing. Then she asked: "What happened?" I told her all I could remember. Then she asked: "Who was the man that spoke to you encouraging you to get yourself out?" "Where did he come from?" "Did you know him?" 83
