Hivi'i 1 '.•mi'enls are dangerous and river depths unpredictable. Swim in properly supervised puuls. They are the only safe places to swim. 3. Wait one hour al'ler meals before entering the water. 4. Don't swim after vigorous exercise or tiring work. 0. Swim reasonably close to the shore. Don't venture into deep water trusting to the support of water wings, un inflated tube, or another swimmer. (i. Muscle cramps are warning signs. They mean gel buck un dry J;uid.' 7. Night bathing is for expert swimmers only, in familiar witter, and when accompanied by other bathers. 8.

To All Teenagers of MOODY COUNTY When Spoiled Brats Drive Cars Editorial in Lakcfielci. Cuiui., Jouinal The I.H-IS are in. boys and you just ilon'l make the grade. You. as a group between the ages of lo' ar.d 'Jf> think you're the world's best drivers; but the lowdown is this . . . you're, (lie country's worst. T|H> facts are in and your insurance rate has gone up anywhere from 20 to 50 per cent. Think it over, lads . . . and dad.-;. Tin 1 insurance people are no dopes. They don't care whether you're handsome and have the females in a dither, they don't care whether you have a piece of junk lovingly tuned to a raceway song; they don't care if you can name every part of every motor ever built or that you can rebuild one with your eyes closed. All they care about is poor performance on the road. Frankly, suns, your perl'om ance stinks. Y< u as a group are a menace to society . . . and lo yourselves. Who says so'.' Not us. The insurance companies say so and they know; they don't know your name and address They iloll'l Kllo'A ol \iiii or a Kord.

Or even like a boy who still knows he's a boy in I doesn't pretend any different. Sure, yon never meant thai accident. ,ind won't mean the one you're going to have. And of ••ne.se it never was your fault. You have a heart of gold and are kind t'i your mother . . . you 1^0 out on the highways and act like a damn fool. A real fool!
