IIII I Photos by WILLIS MILLER PICTURED ARE SCENES of the 1971 Ford automobile that was stolen from Shirley and Ferrin DeWayne Eason two weeks ago and found in "Pretty Pond" south of Florala in Wal- ton County, Florida. Top photo is a scene of the car immediate- ly after it was dragged from the lake and the boys -who parti- cipated in the rescue of the car from the water. The second scene is the car as it was being dragged through the woods after a cart loaded with huge logs, when they decided to run away. The man jumped from the cart wagon of logs and the exerts continued on toward "Pretty Pond'" and were never seen again according to reports. The tale goes that they ran into the pond and vanished from sight never to be found. It is report- ed that divers have been in the pond and discarded looking for a bottom but apparently that has resulted in "only a rumor" being It has been a regular rumor that there is no bottom to Pretty Pond, but the car was detected in about 20 feet of water, it is reported. The water where the car was discovered is very clear and hard to tell just bow deep it is from the edge of the water. A rumor that has presisted during the years is of a "log- ger" driving several oxens to taken from Pretty Pond. since the car was seen and re- covered from the "pond with- out a bottom". Boys, who are now men, and went swimming in the pond say a number of large logs floated on top of the water for years which they played on, adding more interest to the oxen, cart and logs' disappearance back during "logging days."
