| Various life saving techniques taught by The American Red Cross...
This Pete Smith specialty combines a bit of humor with a display of life saving techniques taught by the American Red Cross aimed at saving the lives of swimmers in distress.

There are so many different rescue techniques and all of them are photographed from an underwater viewpoint that shows the arm and leg movements involved.

Neatest of all is the man who uses a paddle stroke on a board that takes him quickly to the side of the swimmer needing rescue and enables him to flip the victim onto the board and back to safety.

The humor involves a man in a toga who takes forever to remove his garments to make a rescue and the shallow water bit as a final joke.

Typical Pete Smith stuff, but not especially noteworthy.
