The Centennial 4-H Club cleaned up the Town of Centropolis in a few hours last summer. One member brought a tractor and a wagon. One leader brought a pick up truck. The first stop was at the Farmer's Union Store. Members all pitched in and helped eagerly. After stopping at several different homes the truck and wagon were full and ready to be unloaded. After unloading they went back for more. By evening everyone was tired, but tiie town was much cleaner, much safer and much neater. Safety around farm machines is a "must." Safety should be practiced around all farm machines. The tractor is the most common of all machines used around the farm. Overturning of the tractor is very common. This can be prevented by spreading the wheels as far apart as practical for the job at hand. A safe speed on the tractor should be practiced Other common accidents are getting clothing wrapped in pulleys and gas exploding while the tractor is being filled. One member of the club gave a safety talk on "Guns." Some points one must remember in handling a gun is carrying it properly and keeping all guns out of reach of children.

The club won second plac in the Farm Bureau Safety Con test. The booth emphasized tractor safety. The life-sized doll, "Rescue Annie," attended one of the 4-H Club meetings.
