Urge Care
And Safety
In Water
In spite of the early date, we
have already had some tragic
water accidents this year in Nebr
aska. With more and more
people turning to outdoor recre
ation, water safety is becoming
of prime importance to everyone.
Knowing how to swim is prob
ably the best equipment one can
have for water safety. Unfor
tunately many adult Nebraskans
have never had the opportunity
to learn to swim.
Most of us learn to swim when
we are youngsters. If we don’t
learn then, we usually go through
life without having this simple
ability. Today’s you.igsters us
ually have a chance to learn how
to swim.
Back in the days when Dad was
a lad, there just weren’t many
places where he could go swim
ming. Today, with the many
sandpits, reservoirs, and city and
school swimming pools, almost
every Nebraska youngster has a
place to go swimming.
They also have the chance to
learn how to swirp from qualified
instructors, thanks to the YMCA,
^ WCA, Boy and Girl Scouts and
other youth organizations. Many
schools offer swimming instruc
tion in their physical education
courses.
Mo^t of the swimming instruct
ors have taken their training un
der the supervision of the Amer
ican Red Cross. If any one or
ganization can be singled out as
expert in water safety, the Red
Cross would head the list.
Much of our Nebraska water
does not have supervised beaches.
The Nebraska Game Commission
does not recommend swimming at
unsupervised beaches at any of
ts recreation areas.
Their Majesties!
R'*■ '•'•'• m s
Lovely Barbara Cole of Jack
sonville and popular Edwin Pleas
ant of Houston, Texas, reigned
as “king and queen” of Orange
and Green Day festivities held
recently at Florida A and M Uni
versity. They are shown in the
above photo minutes before they
were crowned at the traditional
Orange and Green Ball. Music
for the occasion was furnished by
Woody Herman and his Third
Herd. —A and M staff photo by
James Walden.
If you can’t swim, its time to
learn how from a qualified in
structor. If you can swim, a
good safety precaution is the
Buddy System used in many
youth camps and endorsed by the
Red Cross.
Each swimmer pairs off with
a partner and they keep track of
each other. This simple technique
makes help readily available to a
swimmer as soon as he gets in
trouble.
Even expert swimmers can get
into trouble with cramps if they
go in swimming when they are
over-heated. We all know of the
possibilities of getting cramps
from going into the water soon
after eating.
Swimming and diving in
strange water can be treacherous.
Underwater obstructions are a
hazard that claims lives every
summer.
Boating, even for non-swim
precautions are taken. Of course
mers, can be safe, if reasonable
you should have a life preserver
along if you can’t swim. There
preservers that are small, com
are many types of modern life
pact and easy to use.
On the larger waters, such as
reservoirs, even the boater who
knows how to swim, should use a
life preserver. Boats on these
waters should be well constructed
and “seaworthy”. Outboard mo
tors should not be too powerful
for the size boat you are using.
Experienced boaters in the res
ervoir areas will advise you to
head for shore at the first indira
tion of a storm. These large
waters can become very danger
ous for small craft during storms.
Capsizing of small craft is a
constant danger, unless you and
your passengers use common
sense. Never stand up in the
boat. This is a well known rule,
but, each year boats are over
turned and lives are lost because
of failure to heed this simple
rule.
Plain common sense can erase
all the danger from recreation on
Nebraska waters. You and your
family can have many hours of!
fun and outdoor recreation if you i
follow the advise of water safety
