Island, N.Y., was planned as a model town from its beginnings in 1879 when a New York merchant bought 7,000 acres of land with the idea of converting the area into a "city of gar- dents," according to the Ency­ clopaedia Britannica. ; A letter to The Register-News ; today revealed today that an ; unidentified young Mt. Vernon : man saved a child's life after an accident last week east of j the city. ; The letter, from J. W. Sho- ilosky of Piopolis, 111., said he \ came upon the wreckage of a! j truck and car off in a ditch \ | and could hear the* moans of j jthe injured. I He said'a young Mt. Vernon i man also stopped and rushed j down to the ditch where a ; family of five, including three small children, were in the car. "I was standing helplessly," the Piopolis man said. He said a small girl seemed jto be dying. He continued, "This ' young man fell to his knees ; on the floor of the car. As I : I kneeled over him, w a tching 1 with great amazement, he clea-! i red the blood from her nose I j and mouth and saw that she i had swallowed her tongue. After I clearing her tongue, he placed | his mouth over hers and gave • her mouth-to-mouth resusscita- ; tion. | "I had given Up hope for the child but, as I turned to walk ; away from this hopeless situation I heard a strange moan ; coming from the child. I looked fwith great admiriaton at this ; man who had brought life back ito this child." He said that by the time an j j ambulance arrived from Fairi field the child appeared to be I ; recovering "simply because this man had been well trained in something everyone of us should know how to administer. Some day we too could possibly save a life instead of being a helpless onlooker as I experienced. Largest of the earth's oceans is the Pacific; smallest is the Arctic.
