Save a few cents by spending your money in some other city, and then in the course of time find your husband out of a job because business conditions here will not warrant his remaining in some one's employ. The fight is on in all smaller cities. This does not only apply to Eaton Rapids. It is becoming a very serious question and one that must be reckoned with in the near future. Just as mentioned above^—the small city is not dying, it is committing suicide inch by inch. Instead of casting this idea off like so many snow flakes it is time, and right now when every individual should give the matter serious thought. Otherwise there'll be more vacant stores in the city than we regret to report today. Economic Committee New York. N.Y.. — The Committee for Economic Development (CED) announced today a competition to find what the best informed opinion of the Free World regards as.

"J advantages of out-door l-.vir. yet they also face it* hazart July 21 to 2" in National Fa: Safety Week — a time to tal inventory of safety practices The largest nuntber farm accidents in Iowa a: the past 9 years happened to people 65 and over. But pre-s:ho-jl age children accounted for th-. next honest number of d-aths. followed by the 15 to 19-year old group, according to Merle R. Bovis. Fayette County Extension Home Economist. Accidents while operating farm machinery account for most work fatalities. Other major cause of death, not including farm home accidents, are falls, drownings, firearms, animals and burns. Children under 5 are most often victims of burns and drowning. Firearms took highest toll among !.' those between 15 and 19 years. Many of these accidents are caused by carelessness, negli- j gence or not being aware of the J dangers, Mrs. Bovis believes, i Here's what you. the safety-; conscious homemaker, can do. i Don't let your children operate j a tractor or other heavy farm machinery until they have been trained how to do it safety and fully understand the dangers. A child should be at least 12 be- feT?.. h S. drives c a t ^ctpr B ,in,Jftg and feet must reach all the controls and move them while he's sitting in a normal position on the tractor seat. Open water tanks are where most childaten drown, so do all you can to keep the small ones away from tanks.
