Selin explained that skin that has been burned must be stretched and kept as moist as possible to pected back in classes next week, and Walker feels that the program from Crozer-Chester and A.I. duPont will go a long way to in- creasing awareness and sensitivity among students and staff. "I think it was a necessary and beneficial educational process for into October which is Fire Preven- tion Month. It gives the observation of Fire Prevention Month a whole new meaning; students are seeing that it is not just an essay or poster contest."

In the film, "Through the Eyes of A Child," one young burn vic- tim explained that his burned skin was like hard rubber bands.
