      "Girl, 7, Seriously Burned by Bonfire
      Burned about the face and body when her clothing was ignited by a bonfire Thursday afternoon, 7-year-old Lois Okan was taken to Northwestern hospital in serious condition. Returning from school, the girl was attracted to a bonfire in a vacant lot near her home. A gust of wind blew flames toward her igniting her dress. As she ran screaming with her clothing ablaze, her playmates tried to help her. Two of them rolled the girl on the grass until the flames were extinguished. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. O. B. Okan, 2813 Columbus avenue."
