Campercraft or the Summer Camp 271 Most drug shops keep ready-made dopes under such names as Citronella, Repellene, Lollakapop, etc. LICE AND VERMIN In certain crowded camps there is danger of head lice and body vermin. I have heard washing in potato water recommended as a sure cure. Potato water is the water potatoes have been boiled in. Most drug shops ha,ve tobacco ointment and blue ointment ; a very little of these applied to the body where there is hair is a sure cure. SUGGESTED CAMP ROUTINE
