That will be because two seniors. James Thomson and Evelyn Guild will be talking about red Cross whenever they can find listeners. James and Evelyn have a lot to talk about too because they attended a 10-Day session at Camp Clear . Aug 4 14 that s the red Cross Junior Camp near Battle Creek Mich provided by the Kellogg foundation. The two Young people were sent to Camp by the Mower county red Cross chapter As part of a move to boost Junior red Cross activity in area schools. James and Evelyn submitted Brief report on their Camp Exanna Maria. Fla. Fun the fish killing red tide is Hack off the Florida West coast a University of Florida research biologist said after tests in this area. Health officials conservation agents and fishermen generally had been of the belief some form of explosion killed the masses of fish which have been floating out in the Gulf of Mexico and washing ashore for Days. They said the bladders had burst and noted the absence of the Muddy red water which gives the red tide its name found Rod tide but or. James b Lackey the professor of sanitary science at the University said he had found the red tide organism in All samples of water he tested. Head of a University project studying the red tide Lackey said he had worked in the area several Days using a portable Laboratory. He said the outbreak appears to be on a relatively Small scale and already shows signs of diminishing. Largo amount Lackey explained the absence of Reddish water by saying that Large quantities of the deadly agent a tiny organism known As gym Nodin cum brevis Are needed before the red tinge becomes visible. He added that the bladder of any fish will swell and burst in a Short time after death. He said he found red tide pollution off Sarasota just South of Here is Well As in the Anna Maria Island area which is off Bradenton. The area of pollution is moving slowly northward he added. Entries flow into Waterloo Dairy show Waterloo a a flood of entries was flowing into the office of the j National Dairy cattle Congress in preparation for what is expected it i be the largest show in the 41-year history of the event to be held oct. J to. Mora than 2.200 head of the nation s finest Dairy cattle Are expected. E. S. Astel exposition be j Ere tary manager said. The show will open on a saturday. Judging of National Dairy show will begin tuesday and wednesday with the jerseys and Guernsey. Ayrshire will be Jud j pud wednesday and thursday hoi steins and Brown Swiss. Thurs-1 Day and Friday milking Short horns Friday and saturday. Perince As follows by Evelyn Guild my impressions of Camp were slightly different than Jim s there were a lot of teenagers from differ ent backgrounds All living together and having fun for to wonderful Days. In Camp we had one Spanish boy and six negroes. There were also a boy and girl from Toronto ont. Of the 98 teenagers at Clear Lake about every denomination was represented. The Young people All got so attached to each other that it certainly was hard to say goodbye. At first i watched All the others crying and Felt a Little silly but before we left i broke into tears too race color or Creed meant nothing to us we were having too much fun. We had lots of Opportunity for recreation we went swimming Evelyn three times a Day and upon passing a test were allowed to take out boats in the three periods provided. We were so Busy having fun that we did t have time to become homesick even our instruction groups were play we had two groups to plan How to make pro Active again and to learn the duties and facts about the red Cross. In the afternoon there was an activity group which produced a radio program. Newspaper made an album and planned for the last nights party. What a party eleven men from the Percy Jones army Hospital in Battle Creek were invited out to the Camp they went swimming ate dinner and danced with us. Also there was a Talent show. Two of the men did a radio to show for the army and said that they were going to give us a plug the next Day. We really had a wonderful staff too. Or. Armstrong Camp director did red Cross work in this area about to years ago. Miss Lou Eskridge is also known Here. The second Day at Camp we organized a Camp Council which took Over the Camp. None of the staff had votes on our Council but like the u. A had veto Power. They did no to get a Chance to veto anything though As the youth All behaved themselves. Camp was wonderful and i Only j Hope that next year someone else can go and have As much fun and learn a much As i did. By James Thomson one of the most interesting things that i Learned about the red Cross was that it is mainly a Volunteer organization. I used to think that the red Cross was run by the paid winners. At Camp i Learned there Are too volunteers for every paid worker and each chapter is run by a Board composed of Volunteer. The paid worker has no vote. The National organization is run in the same manner. The honorary chairman of the Board is the president of the United states. The Board is composed of civilians including two members of t h e presidents Cabinet. Red Cross activities Are limited or assigned by acts of Congress. Thomson the campers came from 16 states in the midwestern area from Minnesota to Texas and from Indiana to Colorado. The nights at the Center were really cold. Everyone in my Cabin wondered Why i could stand the cold with Only a few covers. They even started a Rumor that minnesotans were really related to Eski mos. Actually knowing that it would be cold nights. I had brought a pair of red flannels along and wore them under my thin Cotton pyjamas. We wrote a half hour radio program and put it on the air on the largest local radio station. After the show had been recorded to be put on the air that night the station manager said that it was one of the Best programs he had Ever heard. Incidentally Ray Palmer. Who was recently asked by the red Cross to be its Public information director for the ear East with he at Tokyo directed the show and deserved most of the credit for the show. He was also my Cabin Counselor. What a Guy he even had a Man s Bikini bathing suit that he wore around ramp. We were Cabin no. I. Whenever ony one mentioned Cabin i we would put our right hands Over our hearts. The Junior red Cross is an organization entirely directed through the schools. It is usually part of the school curriculum. The reason we were sent to the Camp was that while Austin has a very Strong i Grade school j re program. Noth my is done at the school except for a membership and donation drive.
