ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., June 17. — Supposedly attacked by barracuda, a species of carnivorous fish, while swimming near the municipal pier today, Miss Dorothy MacLatchie, a high school student, received injuries which proved fatal after she was brought ashore. Miss MacLatchie, who was considered an expert swimmer, was with a friend when bitten by the fish, and was towed more than half a mile by her companion before the latter’s cries for aid were heard.
