"GIRLS AS EFFICIENT AT LIFE SAVING AS
MEN," SAYS WOMAN CAPTAIN OF RESCUERS
jyjgyMMK
Los Angeles. Mrs. Aileen Allen,
high and fancy woman champion
diver of the Pacific Coast, who will
compete for the national champion
ship next summer, organized and
captains the only woman's lif e saving
team in the United States.
The team, consisting of eight girls,
all expert swimmers, organized last
summer, has made numerous rescues
at the beaches here.
"In spite of opinions to the con
trary, women make as efficient life
savers as men," said Mrs. Allen. "To
rescue a drowning person does not
require so much strength as skill. It
would be the greatest folly in the
world for a man, no matter how
powerful he might be, to attempt to
save a drowning person unless he
were an expert swimmer and knew
how to break the holds of a victim
struggling in the water."

Tery earliest blows aimed at slavery.
Carranza's advice to Gen. P. Elias
Calles, re the proposed invasion of
Mexico by the TJ. S. troops, indicates
