Boy, 4, IS DROWNED IN FREAK ACCIDENT

DURHAM, Nov. 16. (UP) Stanley Soule, 4, drowned yesterday in a freak accident near his farm home.

A boulder near the lip of the spring-fed well fell on top of Soule pinning him in eight inches of water. Two men were unable to move the boulder, and by the time additional help arrived, the boy was dead.

The medical examiner said death was caused by drowning.
