Girl Scout First Aid Contes in Rock Springs May 22nd
The great day arrived. For the last month most of us had been training every single evening and after school too. Our own towns had seen us off for the meet at Rock Springs with heaps of advice and many, many good wishes and more - many promises of parties in our honor and chicken dinners and treats if we brought back the prize. We'd worked problems against time and practiced answering the most difficult questions; we'd tried to keep our health rules; no tea, no coffee, early to bed, lots of fresh air in our rooms; we were so proud of having made the team in our town we wanted to do our best.
The Hanna girls arrived first with captain Leone Tate, and instructor Andy Royce. Then they met the two teams from Cumberland with captains Thelma Rock and Irene Dexter, instructors, Lyman Fearne and Mrs. T. Dodds. We were assigned to rooms in the Union Pacific Club House and in the homes of Mrs. George Pryde, Mrs James Libby and Mrs. A. Thompson, who kindly entertained some of us and we all went to bed at once in order to be ready early for the field.
Then up in the morning and to the field. It was good to see our familiar equipment waiting for us. And the other teams, whole eight of them, two from Reliance, two from Winton and one from Superior, all looking so fresh and ready and efficient in their bloomers and middies with different colored ties. Competitors worthy of our very best effort! Then it was good to see among the judges the United States Bureau of Mines Engineers who'd held us in the last weeks of our preparation and Messrs. John Sorbie and Elija Daniels of the Rock Springs First Aid teams, experts all.
The gong and to work! We were to have three problems. Here are the first two:
Problem No. 1: Reading of problem and preparation of material, 4 minutes.
Girl Scout falls over cliff and receives following injuries: Simple fracture left leg, 6 inches below knee, deep cut on left forearm midway between wrist and elbow, blood spurting from cut. Treat patient for injuries and shock. Time - 12 minutes.
Problem No. 2: Reading of problem and preparation of material, 4 minutes.
Girl Scout is riding in gasoline launch, launch catches fire, burning Scout on left hand and wrist. Scout, to escape, jumps into water and is rescued four minutes later unconscious and breathing stopped. Treat - Two members of team give artificial respiration two minutes (one minute each). Time - 10 minutes.
The end and a short wait and then Mr. George Pryde read the results: Hanna had won. Quickly teams circled their Captains and one after another, cheered the winners. Captain Leone Tate of the Hanna Team, or Lieutenant "Shorty" of the Hanna Scout troop and the Hanna camps last summer, had won.
We all had luncheon together at the Club House and learned that Team II of Reliance could not only work a problem one hundred per cent, the Reliance girls could sing. (Union Pacific Coal Company Employe's Magazine, June 1926)
