The State of Michigan, America's Water Wonderland, annually attracts tremendous numbers of water vacationists and sportsmen of all kinds. The participation in water activities is healthful and beneficial to people of all ages and encourages good health and physical fitness, and WHEREAS, As increasing numbers of our citizens and visitors from other states are attracted to Michigan's recreational facilities, there is a likelihood that unskilled and careless participants in water sports will jeopardize their own likes and the lives of others.

Safety legislation and its enforcement must be augmented by a program of public education. To this and the Michigan Water Safety Study Commission, the United States Coast Guard and its auxiliary and many other interested groups have been directing their activities.

Sp !>(' Lauren Delloff. son of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Delloff of 220 V.. Melcndy si., wrote of his experiences as an explosives disposal specialist in ,a recent letter to his parents. DeHoff is a member of the 549th Ordnance Detachment, stationed at Ft. Meade, Md. This explosives disposal control j .croup serves the entire Second Army area and is concerned primarily with warning the public of souvenir-type weapons and explosives and removing and deactivating suspicious explosive items. Soldiers assigned lo the disposal unit work on a voluntary basis. Authorities state that this type duty is undoubtedly one of the most dangerous and difficult jobs in the Army and, if a man does not have a genuine interest and desire to do this work, he can not be forced to perform such duties. However, because of the intense safely program and active educational training, there has been no record to date of any personal injuries suffered by any member of the unit. An interesting incident, concerning Delloff and his work as disposal expert, was related in his letter. Projectiles, some of which dated back to the American Revolution, from the ammunition stores of the historic frigate Constellation, were asked lo be investigated and deactivated, if necessary, at the request of a museum official in Baltimore, Md. DeHoff was a member of the group volunteering for the assignment. He writes, "We had an incident Saturday afternoon in Baltimore, in the USS Constellation. They found a couple of Civil War rounds down in the bilge and we had lo pick them up. We tore the (one apart right, there, loaded with ! black powder and containing a i cannistcr full of powder and grape I shot." Following Ihe deacl.ivation process the explosives experts were escorted on a tour of the ship. The Constellation, built in 1797, has been claimed Ihe oldest vessel in the world still afloat, and has Ihe distinction of having been the first ship in the US Navy to put. lo sc.a fully equipped and manned. Through the efforts of her crew of 'i'iO seamen arid 40 Marines, and the institution of new nunnery practice, I he commander of this ship, Cap!. Truxlim, was given the title of "the Father of the United States Navy." It. was President George Washington who authorized Joshua Humphrey-, a naval architect from Philadelphia, lo design Ihe Con- •-tdlatkin. Today the ship \^ .-.till basically sound and original and displays more .service ribbons than any other American warship. Following this experience, DeHoff appeared on a television film and was featured in a picture and story in the Baltimore Evening Sun. Flmuer An unusual flower was in bloom last week in the. Edmund Kozlowski gardens at, 008 Fifth st. Half of the stem contained foxglove and the other half Canterbury bells. pipe fills 1/30 of the pool in one minute, the second pipe drains 1/:>0.
