Cold-weather tips for pets
Winter's biting winds, frozen slush, and subzero
temperatures are now upon us. As you work to
keep your home and family warm, the American
Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals
(ASPCA) offers a great number of suggestions
on how to protect your pet against the cold and
wet months ahead. Here are a few of them:
• Keep your cat inside. Outdoors cats can easily
freeze, become lost, stolen, get hurt, or even die
under the wheels of a skidding car.
• More dogs are lost during the winter than any
other season. So beware of the dangers involved
in letting your dog romp off his leash on snow or
ice. Dogs can lose their scent in snow and ice
and easily become disoriented. They may also
panic during a snowstorm and run away.
• Never leave your pet alone in a car during cold
weather. A car can act as a refrigerator in the
winter, holding in the cold. Your pet could liter-
ally freeze to death.
• When your dog comes in from the cold or the
wet, take the time to thoroughly wipe his legs
and stomach. Special attention is needed for his
feet. Check his sentitive foot pads, which may
bleed from encrusted snow or ice.

Tips for You and Your Pet," send a self-addressed

Department, 441 East 92nd St., New York, N. Y.
Program fun at the
National Scout Jamboree
There's plenty of fun and games being planned
for the 23,400 Scouts who will attend the 1985
National Scout Jamboree, July 24-30, at Fort
A.P. Hill, Va. Two activities, bicycle motorcross
and clay target shotgun shooting, are appearing
on the jamboree activity schedule for the first
Scouts will use trail bikes to cover an obstacle
course up and down over uneven terrain, dodg-
ing hanging objects, crossing water hazards and
balance beams, and negotiating jump ramps.
The field sports area will include a shooting
education course, air rifle marksmanship, target
archery, and shotgun trap shooting. Each Scout
will have an opportunity to participate in the field
sports of his choice.
One of the most popular activities of any jam-
boree is the wide game, where Scouts from
different troops and different parts of the country
link arms and make friends by completing a
chain link puzzle.
This year's wide game is based upon the found-
ers of Scouting. Each Scout will be handed a
collector's packet of 10 identical photographs of
one of Scouting's founders. Included are pic-
tures of Robert Baden-Powell, William D. Boyce,
Daniel Carter Beard, Ernest Thompson Seton,
James E. West, Waite Phillips, Norman Rock-
well, Colin H. Livingstone, Theodore Roosevelt,
and Charles L. Sommers.
The Scout then sets forth throughout the jam-
boree campsite exchanging photos with other
Scouts until he has collected all 10 photographs.
On the back of each photo he can write the name
and address of the Scout he traded photos with
for future correspondence. Each Scout who col-
lects all 10 photos will be awarded a segment
patch that reads, "75th Anniversary," to be
sewn next to the jamboree patch.
