Boy Saves Burning Girl
Sioux City, March 30-Friends of little Everett Ostling declare he deserves a Carnegie Medal for his brave rescue of a child from certain death by flames. As the lad was carrying papers, he came upon a bunch of distracted children. One of them, Ida Bonham, a 5 year old girl, had caught her clothes on fire at a bonfire and was shrieking with pain. The quick witted boy rolled her over on the ground in an instant and smothered out the flames with his sack of papers. The child was terribly burned but will recover.
