.TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1958 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE ELEVEN Some First Aid 'Musts' Listed by Commissioner By D E. WIMBEHLV gcout Commissioner North Mississippi County An old woodsman once said: "When you meet a bear in the woods there are two surprises: you have one and the bear has the other." There are also two surprises when you have an accident. The first is that the accident happened, second It happened to you. But accidents do happen, and now as Scouters each of us should by all means know what to do, and not to do, until a doctor can see the injured person. This Is called first aid. First aid, then, is the emergency care given to any one who is badly hurt or who is taken suddenly s(ck. It is the immediate care that Is so necessary to prevent slight Injuries from becoming serious. And there are four emergencies that must have instant attention? to prevent death: ' 1. Where blood is spurting or Gushing from a cut artery or vein, it must be stopped immediately. When blood spurts from a cut artery or pours from a vein, it is like a break in a water pipe, und we must shut oil the flow, at the right place. This you will learn as a Scout In flret aid training. 2. Where breathing has been stopped, it must be started again very soon, if the patient is to stay alive, and to stay alive we must have throe things: food, water and oxygen. If necessary we can live for several weeks without food, or go. several days without water. It isn't comfortable but we can live, but we can only live a few minutes without oxygen, and to get this oxygen; or breathing started, someone must be present who can Immediately start giving oxygen by means of artificial respiration, or death comes very soon. You can't wait for a doctor or an ambulance. This too, you must learn to do as a Scout. 3. Where poison has been taken, it must be removed from the stomach very soon. To do IhLs, send lor a doctor if possible, but by all means RO to work instantly by giving the paiient luke warm soap suds, salt water, soda water, dish water, or even plain water, but warm if possible. If vomiting does not occur, tickle the Inside of the throat with the finger, and treat for shock. If breathing stops, start artificial respiration. 4. Where serious shock is present treat accordingly. Shock Is that peculiar collapse which comes with every serious acldent, and with many little Injuries. Shock may be recognized by feeling faint, face gets pale, skin moist and clammy, pulse weak and rapid, mind dull and may go to unconsciousness. Shock is so serious that you must get a dontor as soon as,possible, in many cases the shock is more dangerous than the injury which caused it. So remember to keep badly Injured person lying down and warm with blankets or such.

Troop 31 Is One oi Oldest Legion Group Has Been Chartered 32 Consecutive Years By KENNETH RICHARDSON (Scoutmaster) Blytheville Boy Scout Troop 31 is one of the oldest troops in Arkansas. The troop has been consecutively re-registered for the past two years by the Dud-Cason Post No. 24 of the American Legion. Troop 31 has the following leadership: Inst'i tutional Representative, Floyd White; Commitee Chairman, J. V. Oates; Committeemen, J. Louis Cherry and Marshall Blackard; Scoutmaster, Kenneth Richardson; Assistant Scoutmasters, Bill Williams and Ulice Nichols; Junior .Assistant Scoutmaster, Glen Ray Boyette; Senior Patrol Leader, David Moody; Scribe, Taylor Francis; Campmaster, Wayne Webster; Patrol Leaders, Jimmy Fong, Eugene Qua,lls and J. L. Austin. Troop 31 tries to have at least one overnight camping trip a month and attend and participate in District and Council events as well as help on the different drives that are sponsored in, the community. The troop was requested to enter a float for the National Cotton Picking Contest Parade last year on Scouting. Under the able leadership and supervision of Ulice Nichols, the boys constructed the prize winning float for the parade. Troop 31 missed winning the'Kel- ley Welch Camporee Trophy by one point in the fall camporee. The boys are determined to bring the trophy home next time and if they do as good a job this next year, they could very well succeed. Troop 31 got the year, 1955 off to a good start with an overnight camping trip in the hills on Eleven Point River, Jan. 8 and 9. Every boy had a wonderful time and is eagerly awaiting the next camping trip. Troop 31 attends Camp Cedar Valley for at least one week of camp every year and looks forward to the trip in the scenic Ozark Mountains on Spring River near Hardy, Arkansas. If you want to see Scouting at its best, make it a point to visit or attend Camp Cedar Valley during the summer months. Troop 31 has a few openings for new boys wanting to join the Boy Scouts. We are planning a big year for 1955 and if you want to come along with us in our many activities, both outdoor and indoor, you will be heartily welcomed. Troop 31 meets at our scout hut on North Second Street on the American Legion grounds. The hut is on the rear of the lot between the American Legion Hut and the Nu-Wa Laundry.
