The United States Navy Band will give two programs Saturday, October 24, at the Grand Theater, under the auspices of the Civic Clubs of Greensboro. School children are urged to attend the mati nee. There will be a different program each time. The Navy Band regularly plays on the Mayflower, the presidential yatch, but is released for a period each year in which to tour the country. It is during this tour that the band will come to Greens boro. All profits will go to the National Sta dium Fund, which is being raised by the American Legion in memory of the World War heroes. It has not yet been decided where the Stadium will be built. “Safety is the best first aid”, declared Dr. M. J. Shields, assistant director of First Aid for the American Red Cross, in a talk which he gave before the class es of the main building, Monday, Octo ber 19, at the fourth period. “Each pu pil,” he contended, “is a potential safety engineer. First Aid doesn’t make nurses out of girls, or quacks out of boys. First Aid is practical common sense. We are all under obligation to prevent accidents. Never pass nails in a board without doing something to them. Thirty per cent of the accidents happen in and around the home.” John Betts, a High School senior, was the subject of the demonstration which Dr. Shields, assisted' by several scouts, gave. He illustrated the correct and in correct methods of stopping a flow of blood in the upper arm by use of a tourniquet. “Don’t neglect little cuts and scratches the speaker urged. “The majority of blood poisoning is caused by small wounds.” Then he demonstrated how to fix tem porary splints on a broken leg and how to improvise a stretcher with two poles and two coats. He showed the “three Bearers” method of lifting an injured person when there were no coats handy (Continued on page three) SHIELDS DIRECTS FIRST AID COURSES AT Y. M. C. A.

Miss Wheeler and Miss Tillet bid fair, to leave off the profession of teaching to manage department stores, and there were girls to rival the most able of O’Henry’s shop girls. To the student- salesmen, the sale offorded a new study of human nature. One old negro man bought a dress and said his boy would like it for a kind of a “coat suit.” Ano ther woman who was as big around as she was tall, seemed never to have but a nickel, but on seeing something she wanted, always succeeded in procuring another. It was worth money to watch them. Though the sale was run in competi tion with about five others, the holders are highly elated over their success.
