Lucky students who don't have
exams scheduled for May 30 will
take advantage ofthe Memorial
Day Weekend at surrounding lakes.
However, the Memorial Weekend
is usually the beginning of num-
erous water accidents that contin-
ue throughout the summer. If a
few rules were obeyed, even the
poorest swimmer would be in lit-
tle danger of drowning.
Swimming and boating, two
ways of relaxing prior to finals,
can be fun but may become dan-
Swimming Rules Stated
Swimming rules are simply stat-
ed and simpler to follow. Swim-
ming areas should always be in-
vestigated before a group attempts
to swim or dive. Avoidance ofaover-
exertion is necessary especially at
the beginning of the season since
this over-exertion is a primary
cause ofrdrowning accidents.
Flotation devices such as inner
tubes and water wings may be fun
to use, but weak swimmers often
place too much confidence in them.
Most drownings occur close to
shore and even non-swimmers may
aid a person in trouble by throw-
ing any handy implement. Jackets,
oars, towels and boards have all
been known to save a drowning
person when tossed to him. Weak
swimmers are cautioned not to try
to save a person by going in after
someone in trouble, for double ac-
cidents have often been caused in
Advice To Avoid Panic
"Don't panic" is not an uncom-
rmon saying when speaking of
drowning accidents. The only way
to avoid panic according to Fritzie
Gareis, Michifish coach and Wo-
men's Physical Education instruc-
tor, is to know how to swim and to
always be aware of the situation
you are in.
The foremost safety rule for the
boating enthusiast to follow is for
him to learn to swim and be able
to handle himself in deep water,
before entering a row boat or ca-
noe. Ans one who has seen a canoe
turn over knows that although it
is upside down the canoe will con-
tinue to float. Rowboats will also
float when overturned and have
been known to stay afloat when
three quarters full of water.
