GIRL, SIX AND HALF LBS., BORN TO MRS. GUMOWSKI ON KENT ST. SIDEWALK

Patrolman James BARRY, of Greenpoint station, early today heard a scream
and saw Mrs. Mary GUMOWSKI, 25, of 241 Java street, collapse in front of 139
Kent street. He hurried to her assistance and found that the stork had favored
her with a six-and-one-half-pound girl.
He tooted his whistle loudly and repeatedly and summoned to his aid a
number of women who stuck their heads out of the windows to see what all the
tooting was for. They did what they could for Mrs. GUMOWSKI until an
ambulance came and took her to Greenpoint Hospital where it was said both
mother and baby were doing nicely. Mrs. GUMOWSKI explained that she had left
her home to seek a physician.
