This year, nearly 15,000 farm residents will die in accidents. More than 1,000,000 will be injured. The occupational death rate among farm workers is the third highest for all types of industry. The majority of these farm accidents are man-made. Human failures ... not machines, animals or natural hazards are the cause of most of them. Most could have been avoided by strict observance of simple safety rules and common-sense caution. Next time you are tempted to take a safety short-cut remember the 1,000,000 others who will carelessly take a chance . . . AND LOSE! WHITTEMORE C<W>P ELEVATOR Arfred Schuhz. Mgr.
