Claremore, July 1: JAMES RADER, age 16, drowned late yesterday in a pond near his farm house four miles south of here. He had gone to the pond with his half-sister, FRANCES FULTZ, age 11, and four other girls to swim. The girls said he dove from a board into deep water and then shouted for help. ALVIN NICHOLS, father of one of the girls, pulled the boy from the water and he was brought here where the fire department men were unable to revive him.
