Swimming Value: 0052.0924

            [EDITORIAL] With the building of the new swimming pool, every boy and girl in Cranbrook should learn to swim this summer.  It is not only the best kind of exercise and sport, but in some emergency this knowledge may mean the saving of your own life or that of a friend.  Even being able to swim just a few strokes in the case of capsizing a boat one can usually stay up long enough to grab the overturned craft or some other object.  Every boy and girl should be able to swim, and know something of the rudiments of life saving.
