Thursday, Aug. 12, 1920.
It looked for awhile Thursday noon
t the club's weekly luncheon at the
Hotel Sheldon that El Paso Rotary
was going to change Its tslod about
appropriating $125 to send a Mexican
boy scout troop to the camp at Cloud
croft Vot that Rotary had any desire to
dery the scouts an outing or was
opposed to spending the money, tor
Kciary is backing the Boy Scout
movement here. It was explained, and
Mrtually every member is a heavy
annual contributor. But, according to
Juhu. Lorentsen, who moved to re
consider the action of the club two
weeni ago when it voted to recom
mend to the boart of directors that
125 be voted to the scout outing and
that the members be assessed $1 each
to pay it, there was a matter of prin
ciple inoled.
Urges Caution.
That was that Rotary should not
vote money too hastily for anything
until stock had been taken of the
treasury's contents and that further
more it was not in the board's power
to assess members. Dr. XL L. Ramey
supported Mr Lorentsen, but Jack
Sheehan. Ed. Lachman, G. A. Martin,
Dr. Fuller Swift and several others
declared in favor of digging down
after the money.
Claiborne Adams moved that every
thing up to now be forgotten and
that everybody pay the dollar and
forget it. With a whoop and a stand
ing ote Mr. Adams's motion went
over Rabbi Martin Zielonfca, made
the suggestion that it was a good
idea for the board of directors of
any club, more especially Rotary, to
let the members know how much
money the treasury had in it from
time to time.
Bequest Accepted
Most of the meeting was given to
business. The bequest of 10 a year
made to Rotary by the will of the
late Robert Krakauer, -one time pres
ident of the club, was accepted by
unanimous vote and his name goes
on the roster permanently without

Grady Weeks is the chief life guard.
His crew consists of Wagner Dawson.

the woman guard.
Picked for Ability and Strength.
The guards are picked for their
ability and strength primarily, and 1
are armed In handling the drowning
persons. To aualifv as a mard th.
applicant must bring from the center
of the pool to the ropes in shallow 1
water, a man who gives him no as
sistance. A cool head, watchful eve
and courteous manner are the other
Four of the guards are constantly
on duty. Two are stationed an life
guard stations in the center of the
pool and two constantly patrol the
sides on the watch for tired or dis
tressed swimmers. Ail the men em- 1
ploy the simple overhand stroke in
their rescue work. '
With the soundlnir of the whistle
alarm by the guard' who has located
a distressed swimmer, all the guards
start toward the spot. The guard who
rlrst located the swimmer goes at
once to the rescue, while a second
stands ready with a "doughnut" life
buoy, for use if the swimmer fights
so as to endanger the guards. Thus
far, in the 75 taken from the water,
no need has been found for the buor.
While the nearest guard is rescuing
we swimmer ail tne others, except
one, go to his assistance. The re
maining guard has his attention
directed continually at other swim
mers lest the excitement cause them
to become distressed is the water.
Majority Cannot Swim.
"Nine out of 10 whom we have
taken out of the deep water cannot
swim," said Weeks. They will abso
lutely disregard their own safety and
the deeper water has a fascination
for their venturesomeness. Disregard
of safety is f ne big cause of distress
among the swimmers and non-
swimmers, although cramps and other
things have caund us some work. A
favorite stunt of young .girls is to
Dersuade their escorts to carrv them
across the pool on their backs. Only
the best swimmers can do this. The
man Is confronted with admitting
that he is not a good enough swimmer
or of taking a big chance in carrying
a woman who cannot swim into the
deeper water"
Thus far two rescued persons were
unconscious and were resuscitated by
the "barrel method" that Is, rolling
them so that the water Is expelled
from the stomach and lungs. The
guards, however, are trained In
various other resuscitation methods
