Liquid Forms

Last summer station wagons
rolled up to the barracks of the
Women Officers Training Class
at Quantico and college coeds de-
barked, each with a couple of
suitcases full of resort clothes,
golf .clubs, a tennis racquet and
auxiliary equipment.
They had heard of the six-
weeks-with-pay program of the
Marine Corps for training poten-
tial women reserve officers, ap-
plied and were accepted.
THE TENNIS racquet and clubs
got stowed under a barracks bunk
and the pleated tennis shorts and
summer frocks spent the greatest
part of the period between June
18 and July 28 carefully folded
away in one wall locker.
From reveille Monday morn-
ings to noon Saturdays, prescrib-
ed dress was the regular en-
listed woman NC's uniform of

The college women drilled for
foot troops daily between 7:,30 and
8:30 a.m., did calisthenics and
workouts on the fleet of Training
Class boats and then found time
for recreational activities, such as
tennis and golf during off-duty

week periods during two consecu-
tive summers.
Students can begin the pro-
gram as a freshman, sophomore
or junior if they are attending
classes and in good standing at
an accredited junior or senior
college or university.
An ensign's commission cannot
be received until graduation and
the age of 21. The Navy also re-
quires that its women officer can-

DURING the' first summer of
ROC training, a pay of $95 a

the Government.
*Quarters, uniforms, textbooks
and supplies will be provided by

LEAGUE EVENT-Summer school students are shown dancing at one of the regular League record
dances which are held from 9 p.m. to midnight each Friday evening. Students may attend with
or without dates. The dances are held in the ballroom.

The controversy over stick ver-
sus liquid cologne is growing with
each new addition to the list of
solid-form manufacturers.
This summer, for example, at
least two more firms joined the
growing ranks of stick makers.
That means that nearly all col-
ogne houses now market their pro-
ducts in solid as well as liquid
THIS DUAL production is aim-
ed at satisfying all cologne users,
some of whom have been alarmed
at this rapid change in cologne
form. For the cologne stick, pro-
moted generally as a hot-weather
product, is fast becoming a top
item among the many refresher
aids jamming the summer mar-

It all started three years ago
'when two firms introduced the
then revolutionary stick cologne.
Sales went so fast, once feminine
shoppers saw its useful traits,
that many other cologne houses

siasts back their sentiments with
several strong arguments.
For one thing, they point out
it is non-stick and non-break-
able. They also find it useful
when traveling, with its insur-
ance against damaging spills.
And since its usually comes in
both purse and large sizes, users
can carry it around and refresh
themselves through the day.
Those on the other side of the
fence who cling to the rewa ding
feel and scent of liquid cologne,
insist that the stick is not pure
cologne, and therefore cannot
come up to the quality of its li-
quid "twin."
They admit its practicality, but
nonetheless prefer their cologne
in a bottle.

Transportation to and from
Quantico is paid by the Govern-
ment, uniforms are issued and
supplies furnished.
ROC's are not automatically
eligible for commissions in the
regular Navy, but a certain num-
ber of graduates of WOTC are
offered commissions in the regu-
lar Marine Corps.'
If a coed can meet the require-

More women are now employed
outside their homes than a year
ago, statistics show. The number
has yet to reach the peak war-
time level of 1944, but it appears
to be heading that way. The num-
ber of women in the labor force
was nearly 18 million in May, a
third of a million more than in
May 1949.

Now that summer is with us'
once more there is the usual peel-
ing off of outer garments, an in-
creased and unwise consumption
of iced drinks, while sunstroke and
heat exhaustion stalk the play-
ground and workroom, felling the
There are those who, quite lit-
erally, go crazy with the heat, and
others who are sure they are go-
ing to.
IF ONE wishes to maintain his
sanity when the mercury goes be-
serk, gallops madly through the
nineties, and threatens to crash
the hundreds, he can emulate the
heat-wise Arab and East Indian
by wearing airy, loose-fitting,
light-colored garments.
To wear a hat for the sake of
one's head and hair and to re-
frain from insulting one's sto-
mach by pouring quantities of
iced drinks into it are excellent
precautions, according to physi-
cians. Chronic digestive disturb-
ances can be the result, they say.
Individuals vary in the amount
of sun they can absorb and the de-
gree of heat they can endure
without being bowled over-which
brings a consideration of sum-
mer's dangerous pair, sunstroke
and heat exhaustion.
s * *
THERE IS A distinct difference
between the two and to treat a
person for one when, actually, he
is suffering From the other, can
be disastrous-even fatal.
The symptoms of heat ex-
haustion and sunstroke are so
different as to be easily recog-
nizable once one is acquainted
with them.
Sunstroke can, and does, strike
with such catastrophic suddenness
that death is almost instantane-
ous. However, in this country, the
chance of this happening is re-
mote. The annual death rate in

the United States from overex-
posure to the sun is relatively low
-something like one person in
three hundred thousand. Men are
more commonly affected than wo-
IT IS WHEN sunstroke strikes
but doesn't kill that the layman,
because of his inability to disting-
uish it from heat exhaustion, be-
comes a menace to the victim.
With sunstroke, the sufferer runs
a high fever, his face is flushed,
skin hot and dry. He suffers vio-
lent headache, dizziness, nausea,
and loss of consciousness.
In the early stages, his
breathing is hard and loud, his
pulse rapid. The pupils of his
eyes may dilate, and he may
have convulsions. As his condi-
tion worsens, his pulse, while
still rapid, grows feeble and ir-
regular, his breathing increas-
ingly shallow.
In heat exhaustion, on the other
hand, the face of the afflicted
person is pallid, his skin is cold, he
perspires freely, and he rarely los-
es consciousness.

necessarily associated with over-
work. It occurs under conditions
of sustained heat, as in the tro-
pics, or during a prolonged heat
wave in this climate.
Though its onset may appear
to be sudden, it actually isn't. It
is more than likely that the vic-
tim has earlier suffered pre-
monitory headache, a tendency
to hysteria, particularly in aver-
sion to food, constipation, and
muscular weakness.
When it finally floors him, he
experiences dizziness and a pro-
nounced lassitude. He complains
of being chilly and sighs when
breathing. He also appears dazed,
as if in a stupor, and often suffers
cramps in his hands and feet or

in his abdominal muscles. His
blood pressure drops, his mouth

IF A PERSON is present when
someone is overcome by the heat,
he should call a doctor immediate-
ly, then determine whether thej
patient is suffering from heat ex-
haustion or sunstroke.
If it is sunstroke, he shouldt
remove the victim to a cool,
shady spot. The advised proce-
dure is: strip him to his under-
clothes and place him on his
back with his head and should-
ers raised; apply ice or wet
cloths to his head and sponge
h% body with cold water, being
careful to avoid sudden shock,
when he is sufficiently recovei-
ed, he should be given cold wa-
ter, but never ice water.
Icy showers are not recommend-
ed. Very cold water stimulates Mie
blood, and in a few minutes after
taking an icy shower one is hot-
ter than ever.
Moderately coo is the ideal
shower temperature; the circula-
tion is not stepped up nor is the
body called upon to perform he-
roic feats of fluctuation between
heat and cold.
It is prudent to eat one hot
meal a day, even during a heat
wave, or at least to drink a hot
beverage with one's cold meal.
