Safety In The Water
Pointing out ten precautions which would be taken by
everyone going into the water, Warren Smith, YMCA ath-
letic director, adds significantly that everyone should learn
to swim. The list of countless drownings among persons who
never learned to swim strongly indicates that merely not
going swimming is no adequate safeguard.
Too many boys who can't swim go sailing, canoeing or
rowing. Too many more fall into the water from docks,
bridges, or large boats. Too many go wading in the ocean,
only to step into a hole, get dragged out to sea by the under-
tow. By far the best precaution against drowning is to learn
how to swim well, and then observe the following rules:
1-Never go swimming alone. Even a good swimmer can
get into trouble-and if he is alone, there will be no one to
aid him or go for help.
2-Never go swimming at an unguarded spot. The safest
swimming places are beaches or pools adequately protected
by skilled lifeguards. The most dangerous are docks, piers,
river banks or other unguarded spots.
3-Never dive into strange waters. You don't know what
is on the bottom and might crack your head on hidden rocks.
get stuck in the mud or run into other dangers. Slip into
strange water carefully and explore it before doing any
4-Don't show off in the water. Many an innocent prank
has had fatal results, particularly if in deep water or swift
currents. Besides being dangerous, a showoff is annoying
to other swimmers and spoils their fun.
5-Don't attempt a rescue unless you are a strong swim-
mer. Every year many lives are lost because weak swim-
mers' noble impulses overcome their discretion.
6-If you have been exercising or working, be sure to cool
off be fore plunging into cold water. Cramps result from
over-exertion or sudden changes of temperature.
7-Don't rock the boat. This is old advice, but it is still
sound. Fooling around in a small boat or canoe is a frequent
cause of accidents. If you can't swim, stay out of smallboats.
8-Pay strict attention to all warning signs. They were
not put up by busybodies, but by authorities who had your
personal safety in mind. Don't go beyond the safe limits
marked by ropes or other boundaries.
9-When swimming or rowing with the tide or current,
keep in mind that it will be "uphill" and twice the work
coming back.
10-Know your limitations. Don't try to swim across a

lake or river just because

Last week, at the invitation of
Mr. William P. Rolleston, vice
president and general manager of
Marine Studios, I attended the

Make Plans To
Study Citrus Disease
State Plant Board agreed last Sat-
urday to put $20,000 into a co-
operative plan with the State of
Texas and the Florida Citrus Com-
mission to send a staff of scien-
tists to South America for study
of tristeza, a mysterious citrus
The board acted after receiving
an opinion from Attorney General
Tom Watson that the expenditure
for research in a foreign nation
is authorized by state law. Chair-
man J. Thomas Gurney said he
hoped to have the plan under way
by next month.
Tristea is a disease which
during the past three years has
destroyed orange groves over a
wide area of Argentina, Uruguay
and Brazil. Scientists have been
unable to learn its cause or a
means of preventing its spread.
The State of Teas agreed to
match the Florida kalotment for
conducting the study, and the
Florida Citrus Commission has
tentatively offered to put another
S20.000 into the venture.
