Samuel Lipschitz. 33 years old, a teacher in the Sholem Aleichem “Folks Shule”, the Bronx, has been gone from his camp at Rat Island near Long Island City, since August 17. His canoe and bathing suit are also gone. Checks and ether effects found in his clothing led to the supposition of his drowning and to the search, which so far has been fruitless. Mr. Lipshutz is the only son of parents living in the Bronx.
