CHILD BURNED TO DEATH

Little Hilda Irene, daughter of Joseph POFF, of Turkey Creek*, was burned to death Monday when her clothing caught fire from an open grate, living only two hours after the accident. The little girl was only four years old and her loss is keenly felt not only by her parents but by the neighbors who had learned to love her.
