Norfolk, Va., Dec. 25--While attempting to reach the bark Kingdom in a dory, two men were drowned in Chesapeake Bay, off Oceanview, last night and five rescued.

The men came ashore to mail letters and on their return trip ventured out in a 30-mile northwest gale. In the shallows above a sandbar the dory was swamped.

The bark Kingdom is owned by the Holy Ghost and Us Society.
