Misguided Missiles 40 TEARS AGO .... by Chon Day I The TraveUri Safely Service FROM THE FILES . . . "Where's the nearest taxidermist?" Mr. and Mrs. Orran Ashby and daughter Margaret arrived in Delta Wednesday from Phoenix, Ariz., to spend the summer at their farm in Delta. Friday Mr., and Mrs. Ashby returned to Las Vegas, Nev., to attend the wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Morrison, Jr., and then were In Salt Lake City Saturday to visit their son Richard, from Cal. Tech., before his departure to Alaska for the summer. Monday found them back in Delta, awaiting awai-ting the arrival of their sons Larry and Kenneth from a Boy Scout trip. Salt Lake City visitors Friday were Mrs. Ray Skinner and Mrs. Glen Crawford. Mrs. Zola Franklin and grandson, Tommy accompanied accompan-ied them and stayed to visit for a few days. Ansel Hall, former Deltan now at Yuma, Ariz., visited in Delta Monday on his way home after attending MIA conference in Salt Lake City with Mrs. Hall. MrsIall is remaining in Provo this summer, to complete studies for her degree in education, and will teach school this fall in Yuma. Rom where I sit y Joe Marsh Handle With Care Tractors are like horses or mules -in more ways than one. They can be pretty tricky if you don't handle them right Too many tractor accidents happen because of carelessness. The day grows hot and drowsy, the job grows monotonous and bingo! Someone forgets to throttle throt-tle down when making a turn, or something, and there's a bad spill. Credit Slim Hartman's missus for the fact that there's never been tractor trouble on their place. Midway through every morning and afternoon she brings him snacks. "Hell stay on the alert," she says, "if I get him off the tractor for ten minutes." From where I sit, carelessness can cause plenty of harm in our off-the-job personal lives, too. For instance, suppose a neighbor prefers pre-fers a glass of beer with supper. You might not share this particular particu-lar preference with him but if you're careless about protecting hit right to choose, your own freedom of choice is in danger of being "plowed under."

A large number num-ber from the various towns attended at-tended the Primary and Mutual Conference and there were nearly 50 people from Hinckely in attendance, atten-dance, including 30 young people who went to enjoy and take prt in the M.I.A. singing contest ana Miss Lyle Cropper, who represen ted this district in the retold story. This is the first time Hinckley or anv part of the Deseret Stake has ever entered the bait LaKe singing contest and Hinckley has the distinction of being the only ward in the church from Canada to Mexico that has competed at the finals in all five of the musi cal numbers. Music is not taught in the Hm cklev Dublic schools and there are no trained singers in its M.I.A., practically all the training of any of the young contestants have ever had consisted of the drill Mrs. C. A. Broadus, their director, has given them on the contest son ?s. Therefore they were pleasantly surprised to be chosen as one oi the two best for the grand finals in the Boy Scout chorus and to secure second place in the final rradine. Even Salt Lake received nothing higher than second place. Our Boy Scout chorus was the only one to receive a hearty and spon taneous encore.

West Delta (Woodrow) shows unmistakable signs of increasing prosperity. We can recall the period per-iod five years ago when a covered buggy in the road was a sight we would run out of doors to gaze upon, and when we were invited out to dinner we felt we must take some food along to help out. Now Sunday dinners are Watel aiehj Rule The tremendous toll of child lives lost each year in drowning accidents can te reduced only through parental protection and education. Dr. George A. Spend- love, State Health Director, declar ed yesterday. The Department of Public Health together with the Prudential Insurance Insur-ance Company,, is sponsoring a special water safety program here this month as a feature of the Department's De-partment's year-round Child Safety Crusade. In addition to swimming haz ards, the campaign is designed to warn parents about other water dangers, such as wading pools, fish ponds, lily pools, water-filled excavations, irrigation ditches. wells, cisterns, and even the family fam-ily bathtub. 'Drownings are the leading cau se of accidental death among chil dren 5 to 14 years of age," Dr Spendlove pointed out. "In addi tion, 10 per cent of all drownings are children under five years of age. These figures add up to more Than 2100 young lives lost need lessly each year." He said that prevention of drow ning from birth to five years of age depends primarily upon pro tection. The persons responsible for the care of a small child must not allow the child to drown or permit others to drown him. "During this period, too, the child can be taught in his bath a respect for water, rather than a fear of it or an indifference to its potentialities," Dr. Spendlove said. "He can learn that the untrained human body is not unsinkable and that fluid in the mouth, eyes and air passages is not pleasant." To reduce deaths from drowning Gordon Moody At Ream Field MILLARD COTOTY CHHONTCLE Delta. Utah Thurs. June IS, 1935. in tne live to 14 year old group, principal reliance must be on education, ed-ucation, according to the health director. "Children should be taught to swim early," he said. "They must also be impressed with the fact that clothing may rob them of their ability to swim, as well as other factors such as a blow on the head, stomach cramp, and even extremely cold water. "Anyone learning to swim must take into consideration tides and currents, undertows, surfs, whirlpools, whirl-pools, rocks and coral. It also must feature handling of rafts, canoes, logs, paddle and surf boards and small boats." Dr.. Spendlove made the following follow-ing suggestions for the protection of small children: 1. Parents should fence their swimming pools and supervise children in wading pools. 2. Lily ponds and fish ponds should be filled in with dirt or covered with heavy wire. 3. Parents should fence their yards to prevent children from Rtrnvin(7 tct unfflnrprt nnnla rsf - c - . . . . .... f. ...... w. neighbors or to irrigation ditches abandoned wells, cisterns and other death traps. 4.
