The doctor Shook his head. Quot its appendicitis a he said. Quot we be got to get him to a Hospital right a few Yards away the doctors motor boat rocked in the Waves beside a Little Dock that jutted out into puget sound. In answer to an urgent radio Call he had chugged through the Choppy Waters from his Home on one of the larger islands of the san Juan group to this tiny Dot of land where a few families of fishermen lived. It was getting dark and the wind was rising it would be a rough and dangerous voyage of hours to get the boy to a Hospital on the Mainland hours that might make it too late. The physician turned toward the boys Mother. She stared through the window at the tossing sea. A a done to worry a he told her. A a we la find a he strode out info the dusk and walked rapidly to the House of the Fisherman whose Little radio had crackled out the Call for a doctor. In a few minutes he was Back. Quot get his things ready a he told the Mother cheerily a and yours too. Well soon be started a Rescue by air scarcely Twenty minutes passed until they heard the Distant drone of a powerful motor growing louder. Then the dark form of a huge seaplane loomed Over the ski line and circled above the Island. Gracefully the great flying boat settled into the water just off the Little Dock. A neighbor rowed the doctor carrying the boy in his arms and the Mother to the plane. A Strong armed Young Man in a Blue uniform helped them aboard. The powerful engine roared again. The ship threw White Spray As it skimmed through the Waves. Then it was in the air. Less than an hour after the plane took off from its a at port Angeles Willington the Little boy was in a White Hospital bed at Bellingham on the other Side of puget sound. The coast guard had saved another life. This mercy flight was Only one of scores made each year by Uncle same a coast guard aviators. Coast guard air stations Are scattered along All the shores of America to supplement the work of the regular coast guard service. Every Day of the year some of the planes Are in the air. The men who Fly for the coast guard like those who go Down to the sea in cutters or sur boats must always be prepared for any emergency that May arise. Serve ships at sea thus the Boston coast guard station picks up a Call from a fishing vessel tar out in the Atlantic. A Seaman aboard is critically ill from blood poisoning. Soon one of the coast guards flying boats in roaring out Over the sea. Though a fog Rolls Over the water below in a thick White Blanket. Through a break in the fog the plane miraculously locates the vessel and lands along de. The Fisherman is lifted into the plane from a Lifeboat. A Little More than an hour later he is in a Boston Hospital. But not All the work of the coast guards planes is making mercy flights. The coast guard is actually a part of the u. S. Treasury Revenue service. Originally it was organized to halt smuggling. Far More efficiently than Burlace Craft the planes can patrol sections of coastline watching for suspicious looking boats. At time a plane from Roxton flies Low Over the i Hing grounds off the new England coat. Through powerful binoculars an observer scans the Waters below. Suddenly he sights the movement of i he millions of them. The plane radio the location of the school of fish and soon fishing vessels from All that Section of the sea Are on their Way to share in the catch for the markets of the nation. The Telephone rings at a Florida Coad guard station. A this is the weather Bureau. There a a Hurricane heading for the East coast. It looks like a bad spreading the alarm the Day is Calm and Balmy but the coast guard lose no time. Within minutes the planes Are in the air roaring Down the coastline. One sights a picnic party camped on a stretch of Beach the ship circles and tosses out a Small wooden Block with a doth Streamer attached. In Large letters the Streamer bears the fearful words a Hurricane the Camp is abandoned and the picnickers head for Home and shelter. Another plane drops a Block on the deck of each fishing boat it sights. Most of the smaller vessels do not have radios. They might not know of the approaching Hurricane until it was too late to escape the blow. Warned by the coast guard they head for Harbor. South along the Florida keys Fly the planes dropping their warning blocks at Road Camps isolated houses everywhere that warnings might be needed. Then Back at their bases the planes Are fastened tight in their hangars during the big blow when no ship could stay aloft. After the Hurricane there is More work for the planes of the coast guard. They must Fly Over the storm swept area looking for ships in distress or marooned families and reporting Back by radio what they find. Sometimes they must drop emergency food or medical supplies. Like the seagoing Craft of the coast guard the planes Bear the proud motto. A Semper Taratus Quot or a always coast guardsmen have reduced it to language of their own a the rules say you have to go out. They done to say anything about coming All the coast guard planes Arr named after stars such As the Arcturus the Crux and the Vega. And at times they become stars of Hope where All Hope seemed lost the empty vessel Quot time empty vessel makes the greatest sound a maid Shakespeare. What did he mean did he mean that an Ash can full of a heft makes less sound when you hit it than an Ash can without anything in it not quite that. He was thinking of people when he wrote that sentence. Braggart he implies Are usually men without much brains. That is the boy or girl who boasts loudly usually has nothing to Hack up these assertions. All of us deep Down inside Are pretty Well pleased with ourselves. We All think we re pretty Good. But the boy or girl who puts Forth no great boasting front about these opinions of self is the Wise one.

But done to Tell your teammates or friends How Good a game you played. They saw you. They know.
