NORWALK, Conn., September 1. – Lillian Gish, actress, was nursing a lacerated hand today, suffered when a mongrel dog bit her as she attempted to rescue her Sicilian puppy from its attack. She brought the puppy with her from Europe Saturday and was exercising it soon after her arrival here when a stray dog pounced upon her pet.
