Girl Saves Boy

HOODSPORT, Nov. 19.--(AP)--Eighteen-month-old Warren Hunt, son of Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Hunt, owes his life today to nine-year-old Hettie Pierce, who plunged into Hood canal yesterday and rescued the unconscious boy.

The youngster apparently fell into the water from logs in front of his home and was seen, floating face downward, by the Pierce girl. She pulled him to safety and he was revived at a Red Cross emergency station.
