Hundreds more will be injured. Yet almost every accident can be avoided. Carelessness and ignorance cause most tractor accidents, reports the Iowa State Department Of Health. A tractor dlwayS does whdt the operator, through the controls, tells it to do. There are only three things a tractor can do when it is set in gear. The wheels can clip, they can turn and move the load forward, or, if they cannot turn, the tractor will tip backward. When the incline becomes too great, it's easier for the tractor to tip than to pull the load. Yet drivers Still try to work a side hill, or drive up or down a steep bank, or poll loads too heavy for the tractor. ' •Some operators fail to turn off the powe to adjust or repair a machine — or jump' of while the machine is in motion 1 — or drive trac f tor$ too fast for safety. Highway driving is another hazard. Only experienced drivers, possessing mature judg mint, should be given the resppnliBility of han dling farm machinery on- public roads. Each year more fatal tractor accidents occur in the 10-14 age group than in any other age category. Courtesy makes friends and .prevents ac cidents.

Failure to "take a break" and trie accompanying fatigue is blamed for many farm accidents. These precautions have saved many lives; they may save yours; Never drive up or down a steep slope or along the edge or side of an embankrnent; keep ;b,rakes• well-bdianced;. use a'draw-bar for hitching loads, and start the pull slowly; stop the engine when oiling or making tractor adjustments;' don't speed; let the engine cool before putting in gasoline;' never let chil- .dren ride, as passengers or operate tractors; take time to rest.

(no good) is about all we can say for the proposal In the state legislature to put a state withholding tax burden on Iowa employees and employers. The proposal would- follow in the footsteps of the federal government if enacted into law. First off,'it's no good because it softens the public's awareness of taxes. Secondly, it would place the burden of collecting the tax on the employer instead of on the state tax commission. Washington " ':•' ••••- /C7»' * .': , \hi Mr. G. W. Patterson Burt, Iowa .

If, for example, the tax went into effect this July Isi, withholding taxes would be collected for the balance of 1961. Already this year, Iowa taxpayers have paid their I960 taxes — thus we would be paying 1 % years' taxes in one year. In addition, during 1962, there would be another 1 '/a years' taxes paid by the taxpayer. He would pay all of his 1962 taxes by the withholding method and the first half of 1961 taxes by the present method. This is only the beginning of the trouble. The state tax coffers would be "loaded" with that additional revenue. Our state bureaucrats would look at the pleasant state financial position and go on another spending orgy and we'd be back in trouble in about two years' time, when tax collections returned to normal.
