SUMMER WATER DANGERS.
After all prmautlons have been
taken, after children hate been In
structed and warned about dangers In
aquatic sport, after the police, school
and other officials have done their
best, we must still expect many deaths
from drowning this coming summer.
Nowhere is preparedness a greater
asset against serious accident than In
boating, canoeing and swimming. The
efforts made by the police, (be schools
and others to teach the simple meas
ures of common sense necessary
afford the best protection against dis
aster. Yet there is another element
which should be Impressed upon the
trained canoeist and the expert swim
mers. These should be taught not to
place too treat reliance Id their skill.
