training in American Red Cross first

has announced. , ,
New teaching material for the
courses', prepared in cooperation with
the federal Civil Defense Administra
tion, has been released to Red Cross
chapters throughout the country in
the form of supplements to the stand

books. It is designed to brinj the

With the new training- material
available, Red Cross chapters are re
doubling their efforts, begun last sum
mer at government request, to train
large numbers of persons in these
'safety and health courses.
'Among the first groups to be train
ed are school children, industrial
workers, police, firemen, and govern
ment workers. In Beaumont, Texas,
a thousand legionnaires are taking the

schools, 100,000 children will receive
first aid instruction. In Los Angeles
every high school pupil will receive

sons in first aid and hundreds of thou

Home Nursing supplements are being
distributed initially.
. The new first aid material, which
will add four hours to the standard
18-hour course, outlines the injuries
which would follow an atom bomb at
tack and the beat methods of giving
them emergency care.
It points out that burns and wounds
Would be the most common injuries.
Contrary to popular belief, radiation
damage would be comparatively minor.
Of extreme important, the text says,
Is the order in which large numbers of
casualties are treated. Severe hemor
rhage, asphyxia, or serious breathing
difficulty, and deep shock require im
mediate life-saving attention in that
order. The common-sense reminder
to remove the injured from hazardous
areas immediately is added.
Both the first aid and Home Nurs
ing supplements stress the import'
aid textbooks were shipped to chap
ters in December 1950 as were shipped
in the same month in 1949. A North
Carolina chapter stated that it had
trained three times as many first aid
instructors in a recent five-week
period as it had all last year.
Red Cross officials pointed out that
public understanding of the need for
protective training is the chief re
quirement for getting the job done. At
the onset of World War II, the Red
Cross trained more than 3 million
in first aid in a single year. Last
vear 400.000 persons received First
Aid Certificates
Information in the first aid supple
ment is being disseminated through
chapter first aid instructor meetings,
and eventually will reach all chapters
having first aid instructors.

Proposed Auto Tax
Unfair To Motorists

'UK
Motorists of the Carolinas would be
called upon to pay- approximately
$86,000,000 in Federal automotive tax
es annually under proposals present
ed to Congress February 6th by secre-j
tary of the Treasury Snyder, Miss
Goldie Layton, Manager of Edenton
Branch Office of the Carolina Motor
ICiub, says.; ;
North Carolina motorists would pay
approximately $58,000,000.00 under
the proposed tax increases, ' while
South Carolina motorists would have
their taxes increased to an estimated
$28,000,000.
r This would virtually double the
amount paid to the Federal govern
ment in auto excise taxes during 1949,
last year for wnicn figure are avair
able. This tremendous proposed boost
in federal auto taxes brought a prompt
response from the American Automo
bile Association, which pointed out
thai 'motor vehicle owners are being
asked to foot more' than 40 per cent
of the entire increase in excise tax
schedules. ' ; "'V :-:'U':.i
Specifically Secretary Snyder rec
ommended that the excise tax on new
cars which is passed to the purchaser
in the form of higher car prices be
raised from seven per cent to 20 per
cent and that federal gasoline tax be
raised from 1 cents per gallon to
three cents a gallon.
The rate of increase proposed for
new cars is higher than any other ma
jor increase recommended by the
Treasury Department Raising the
rate from seven per cent to 20 per
cent would be in increase of 187 per
cent, . virtually tripling the existing
tax schedule. . The proposed gas tax
increase is 100 per cent
By way of contract, the proposal to
increase the tax on liquor is $3.00 per
gallon, an increase of only 33 13 per
cent ajjd on cigarettes only 43 per

ing North Carolina-grown food right
here in the State -can prove invalu
able to Tar Heel citizens if the .food
and the facilities are handled pro
perly, says IMiss Orr. However, she
adds, the general public needs and is
eager to receive more information on
food freezing. c;:v"'-:-y.ij
"Frozen food locker plants, for ex
ample, have been misjudged by some
people as a place to hoard meat," as
serts the specialist 'A locker is for
the purpose of providing a better
living, not for hoarding. The hoarder
in an emergency such as we have now
is a very, poor citizen and a worthless
patron. He always geftg cheated in
economy and in quality."
On the other hand, intelligent man
agement of food 'and facilities is not
to be confused with hoarding. .Plan
ning the family food supply a year in
advance, freezing the things that lend
themselves best to freezing, canning
(such as tomatoes), storing root crops,
planning the use of fresh foods these
things show wisdom and foresight in
normal as well -as other times.
Temperature greatly affects the
quality of -frozen ' foods, says Miss
Orr. Zero degrees is the recommend
ed temperature for storing frozen
foods. Those kept at a higher tem
perature lose quality. Some people
have the mistaken idea that if , the
package is not soft it is all right The
locker plant patron in North Carolina
is protected by law on that score, but
there is no regulation regarding tem
perature of cabinets fn retail outlets
for commercially packed frozen foods
or for home freezers. Temperatures
in these cabinets should be checked
by the owners. . -
