Uxbridge, Mass., March 21 --- Raymond,
the three-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Malley who make their
home on High street, is in line for a Carnegie medal for life saving as
yesterday he saved his two-year-old brother, Edward, from drowning in a
pool formed by the brook that runs through the property at the
rear of the home. The two youngsters were playing near the brook
when the younger decided to try the ice which gave way under his weight.
The older brother was a little distance off when he heard the screams
and ran to his assistance. Edward was face down in the pool and
was so caught by the ice that he could not extricate himself but Raymond
was equal to the occasion and pulled him out and partly onto the land
after which he ran up to the house and summoned his mother as the little
brother was too heavy for him to carry to the house. The little
boy was quickly disrobed and rolled into a woolen blanket to emerge
smiling about an hour later with no apparent injury from his cold bath.
