PXCU Volunteers Teach
Convalescents To Swim
Program To Instruct Palsy,
Polio Patients Started In 1948
By GRACE HARVEY
Teaching convalescent children
to swim is the project of 11 Uni
The voluntary group, which is
wade up of members of the
Water Safety Division of the Red
Cross, instructs polio, palsy and
other convalescing patients one
afternoon a week at the YWCA
pool. Eleven patients attend these
Tuesday swimming sessions.
The instructors are: Ann Kok
jer, Barbara Grow, Arlina Harte,
Blaine Ward, Barbara Turner,
Nancy Mueller, Marilyn Eaton,
Billie Howalt, Nancy Hall, Jane
Spencer and Adelle Chassnov.
. .EACH STUDENT teaches the
lame patient throughout the swim
ming program. "This way the
patient knows his instructor and
the instructor knows how much
to expect of his patient," Arlina
Harte, chairman of the Red Cross
Water Safety Division, explained.
University students have worked
on the project since 1948. Interest
increased and in 1952 a separate
college water group was formed.
The patients range from 18
months to 45 years of age with
the largest percentage of them in
the 5-15 year old group.
THE PATIENTS are either able
to walk with the help of crutches
or braces or motivate themselves
in wheelchairs. Although most of
the victims are homebound, some
of them attend school. The water,
because of its buoyancy, enables
the patients to walk and stand
( easier than they can on land.
"Although we are pleased when
our pupils finally learn to swim,"
the instructors said, "a slight im
provement is enough to make us
feel the worthiness of this proj
ect." Miss Harte said, "As one teach
er instructs only one student,
more instructors are needed for
work this summer and next fall."
Requirements for instructors are
a Water Safety Instructor's Cer
tificate, interest and training
THE ELEVEN students working
with the patients have completed
a course at the YWCA which
taught them flow to instruct the
handicapped. During the course,
which met in thr'ee sessions, the
students learned, anatomical
terms, different movements of
the body and how to apply these
movements to the swimming pro
cess. In tlie- sessions they worked
with blind persons and blindfolded
themselves while swimming so
tlu-t they could comprehend the
j-i-obieras the blind are faced with
v en learning how to swim.
Students interested in giving
ewirnming lessons to the handi
c; 'med should call Miss Harte at
2-151. 4 - '
'"THE ONLY aim of the student
Instructors is to teach the patient
to swim," Miss Harte emphasized.
"Some people have the incorrect
view that the instructors teach
"Muscle coordination and side
reactions develop naturally, but
they are in the doctor's field, not
the instructor's," Miss Harte
She added that swimming, be
sides being helpful physically,
builds morale because patients,
when swimming, are doing some
thing which normal people do.
"Most of the children like the
water," Miss Harte said, "but
when they don't we play with
them until they do like it."
