Abbotsford Boy Scout Troup 621 and Colby Troop 683 took part in the Ojibwa District first aid meet at Marshfield. A total of 132 boys representing 11 troops took part in the meet.

Colby Fox Patrol, with 189 points, was given a red ribbon, and the Longhorn Patrol of Colby, with 209 points, a blue ribbon.

The meet was designed to test the scouts’ knowledge of first aid methods. Each patrol was presented with a set of problems relating to specific injuries. One scout acted as the injured, with the patrol judged on the way it handled the situation.
