Farm Safety Week Began Here Sunday Farmers and farm visitors especially children-were today urged to be on their guard against farm safety hazards. R.I. Anderson, chairman ASCS county committee, pointed out that July 23 is the start of National Farm Safety Week, as proclaimed by President Johnson. So it is a particularly appropriate time for farm families to help make their farms and communities safer by eliminating hazards and unsafe practices that cause or contribute to accidents. Many farm operations involve heavy machinery, handling live- stock, and strenuous physical exertion. By their nature, these require special safety precautions. Streams and water storage structures may present special hazards, particularly where children are concerned. Among these are irrigation and drainage ditches, as well as natural streams and farm pondsandopen tanks. So the watchword, Chairman emphasizes, is "Be careful. Having a National Farm Safety Week just helps to stress the need for practicing safety. But we need to practice it in most farming operations and around farm installations every day of every week."
