In last Thursday's Chronicle was an article about a well known boy from Long Lake. Lieutenant Harry V. Huffman, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jess Huffman of Long Lake, was in a serious condition at Harding field hospital after his foot was amputated when he bailed out of his plane near Denham Springs. Huffman's plane collided in the air with one piloted by Lieutenant Martin Clark on a routine flight. Both parachuted out, but Huffman's foot evidently was caught in the propeller blade or another part of the plane and was cut off. Mr. Huffman's father flew back to La. to be with his son. Word was received here Saturday not to worry, as he was doing nicely.
