Camp Fire Girls Inviting All Sills Between 7 and 18 Years Fun-Filled Program Aims Development of Abilities And Rounded Personality By MARY E. PENNOCK "So you're a Camp Fire execu- tive," people say to me when I an- swer their "what do you do" query. "Let's see, aren't they the little girls who light fires with only one match nd fit eggs on hot ranks?" And I 6mile indulgently rid have to admit that they have been known to do both things, but that those two ex- amples hardly typify Camp Fire's /~ctivities. It's like saying that the Red Cross has "something to do with bandages, doesn't it?" Camp Fire's field of activity is broad, seeking to give a girl an op- portunity to try many things and so to find herself. The philosophy of the program is that girls "learn by doing," and if you were to glance through the "Book of the Camp Fire Girls," you would notice the long list (1,300) of things that girls may do to earn honors--notice MEMBERSHIP DRIVE SEPT. 15 TO NOV, 30 'Annual membership drive of the Camp Fire Girls extends [ram Sept. 15 to Nov. 30. Slogan this year is "There's Fun [or Everyone in Camp Fire." A summary of the organization's aims: "Camp Fire Girls work/or World Friendship. Their program is based on democratic ideals. It builds lot happy home liIe, community service and better citizenship. Through see. en lively era/is, Camp Fire Girls have tun, make trlends, and develop their skiUs end talents." the word "do"-not "know." These honors are grouped in seven differ- ent fields: home craft, health, camp, nature, business, hand craft and citizenship. Exploration into these fields has meant the discovery of a vocation to many girls. A star study session of her nature group at camp started one Minneapolis girl on a hobby that finally led her to the position of curator at New York's Hayden Planitorium. We have no promises, take no oaths in Camp Fire, because we know that promises are sometimes broken. A girl expresses her desire to follow the Camp Fire L w, which is: Wonddp G~d Seek Beauty Give Service Pursue msowie e Be Trutwerthy HeM ea to lleulth Glorify Work B Happy YEAR-ROUND TONIC The Camp Fire Law is really philosophy of life, and beautiful one, I think you will agree. A Camp Fire Girl said to me re- cently, "Miss Pennoek, the Camp Fire Law is so lovely it is almost like poetry," They $oin for the Fun. Girls, of course, do not Join Camp Fire because it Is good for them-- "character - building" agency. They Join because it is fun, bee use it fills for them a need of belonging to a group. Together with from 6 to 20 other girls, they have an oppor- tunity to do things which they can- not do alone. They make their own plans, run their own meetings. I have seen more than one president of an adult group who could learn something from a Camp Fire group president about parliamen- tary procedure. These days, when we are all thinking so seriously about making democracy work, Camp Fire groups A Camp Fire Girl (left) is from 10 to 15. Through the seven lively crafts she becomes well equipped to handle varied situations. A Blue Bird is a Junior member between 7 and 10 years old. Through a program of games, story-tell/rig, simple hand craft and war serv/ce, Blue Birds learn to work and play with other .children. They become reliable while having fun. Horizon Clubbers (right), are of senior high and Junior college age. Personaflty development, vocational study and community service pre- pare Horizon Clubbers for adult society. are getting a first hand experience in democracy. "Workshops of Dem- ocracy" is a term that has been given to Camp Fire groups. Girls are not dictated to by their leader. They learn to examine suggestions and ideas critically, to think things through sensibly, to make their own decisions. Credit to Volunteer Leaders. We who work professionally in Camp Fire take little credit for its accomplishments. AU credit is due to the tireless and loyal devotion of its thousands of volunteer leaders and the men and women in each community who make up its local councils. They serve the girls of their community through the Camp Fire program because they believe in youth and because they, too, have fun. Do not think that all the bene- fits revert to the girls. A Minnesota guardian, telling what grand times sh was having working with her group of Camp Fire Girls wrote, "My former classmates, now grown heavy and dull, look at me and say, "My, but you get younger and nicer looking all the time.' I never have time to wonder about whether or not it is true that 'Life Begins at "40".' Sometimes, the old woman that I reaLly am stands aside and looks at me that is guardian of Camp Fire, and I laugh until my sides ache to think how Camp Fire has cheated old age." It sounds like fun, doesn't it? It is fun, and there is a place for you in the Camp Fire picture it you love and understand girls. Youth needs you now, and Camp Fire can give you the tools with which to serve. Your opportunity, is as close as your telephone---to call your local Camp Fire office -- or your paper and pen, to write National Headquarters at 88 Lexington venue, New York 16, New York. And about those eggs fried on hot rocks--you can be associated with Camp Fire a long time and never learn that trick. I never have. Common Sense Will Kill Common Cold "It takes s week to cure a cold, but it cures itself in seven days," runs an old saw. Though medical re- search is finding effective anti-cold drugs, a cold is self.limiting and un- less complications set in, the suf- ferer gets well anyway. We know that the cause of the common cold is a filtrable virus, and that the virus is highly contagious. Theoretically, the fellow with a cold should isolate himself during the acute incubation period. But most cold carriers consider themselves too "indispensable" to stay home, and consequently the rest of us are doomed to inherit the virus and catch cold. Specialists say that during the first stage of an acute cold local nasal treatment is of no value and may produce uncomfortable sec- ondary reaction. The medical profes- sion is anxious to help the layman choose proper medication; because of the hundreds available, most do more harm than good. It is unfor- tunate that the alkalinity of certain nasal preparations has been so cx- THE BILLINGS COUNTY PIONEER i, Ro/ling your eyes is excellent to s~rengthan the eye muscles. Look atralght ahead.

RUBY H SKINB ELLIS BALL This name Is of Saxon origin and means "swift." Another authority gives the meaning "bold." It had many variations in spelling, such as Balle, Bale and Bal. Bal is also a B lglan m~rname. The first-head of the Ball family on revord Is Vice Comes Ba, who is named in the Doomsday book as a landed proprietor of Exou, England. A noted Puritan divine, John Ball, tolled over the radio. It is now known that nosedrops should be slightly acid. Of the available liquid nasal preparations, antiseptics and silvers are often more irritating than helpful, while gargles are usually ineffective in killing or even inhibit- ing bacteria, according to an article in Coronet magazine. Sulfa Drugs Useless. While the sulfas have little or no effect on the common cold virus, they are effective against many types of bacteria and consequently may -- when sprayed or dropped into the nose---serve a useful pur- pose in preventing the spread and shortening the duration of infection after the first acute stage of the cold. But there's danger as well as miracle in the sulfas and even these preparations should be used by the layman only on the advice of u physician. There are also great many the nose feel clear in seconds. Be- cause of cooling menthol, they do make the nose feel clearer, but that's all. Actually, they irritate the nasal membrane and are of no medicinal value whatsoever. The common cold must run its course. But Its course can be short- ened and its potential dangers can be minimized, and here's how: Make the first sign of a cold a slow down signal. If you can't spend a day or so in bed, get extra sleelb Keep warm and dry. Don't over-indulge, If the air in your house is too dry, a copious jet of steam flowing from the kitchen kettle will help moisten the dry mucous membrane. Only when the later symptoms are in evidence has the time come for medication. Then it is important to get the right medication. It's easy to telephone your doctor for advice.

Both officers are ma- rines, and are First Lt. Stella Sharpe Colley, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. I. Sharpe, Glenfield, and First Lt. John M. Colley, son of Mrs. J. C. Cooley, Fairbanks, Alaska. At a regimental parade at Camp Pendleton, Calif Lt. John received the Silver Star for gal- lantry while leading an engineer platoon on Iwo Jima, from March 12 to March 14, 1945, presented by his wife. When an infantry assault on Japanese positions was stopped because of terrain, too rough for the use of tanks, he undertook the construction of a road for the tanks. According to his citation, Lt. Coo- ley, "after making a reconnaissance under heavy fire of the rough @nd rocky terrain, personally led and directed an armored bulldozer through the route he had chosen to a point beyond the front lines. He continued this work, constantly ex- posing himself to heavy enemy fire until wounded, and by so doing, materially aided the advance of the infantry in this sector." Lt. Cooley, is a civil ~ngineer graduate of the University of Alaska and joined the marines in June, 1942. A grad- uate of Jamestown college, Mrs. Cooley received her commission in December, 1944.
