Most farm people ncnr Blytheville can remember when the farm was covered with bcniiiida and John- sou grass and Ihe crop ylelfts were poor.

Total weight, of tile Clirlsliniit. package must, not lie over five pounds. The package can be no longer than 15 Inches or larger tliun 30 Inches in length nnd girth combined. Owing to the great distance this infill must be transported, ordinary cardboard boxes, such ns show boxes, nre not, strong enough. Miss Colcman said. The Post Office Department advises that boxes should he metal, wood, so!M Iluerboard, or strong double-faced corrugated flljcrboard reinforced with strong gummed paper tape, or tied with strong twine, or both. Small articles should be closely packed In the box with such packing materials ns ;shredded paper'or excelsior. ••_ " Perishable articles such ns fresh 1 fruil will not be.accepted 'by 'po.<L offices.

That means every day, year- 'round alertness to the dangers of accidents and fires encountered dally on forms. Although. Farm Safety Week 'was devoted mainly to prevenlio: of accidents which in 1943 took the lives of 20,000 farm people •ami injured an estimated 2,000 000, the danger of destructive fire's is ever present, even while the family sleeps. i 40,000 Farm Buildings Burn One fourlli of the fatal farm accidents arc caused by burns, second only to falls which annually account for 39 percent of (lie deaths. The National Fire Protection Association estimates that 40,000 farm buildings were destroyed or damaged by fire last year and that 3,500 persons perish cd in home and barn fires alone This docs not take into consid eralion Ihe number of burns frorr gasoline powered machinery. ;.- Fully 60 percent of the farm fire loss and one third of the tola number of fires are traced lo flammable roofing materials.

This will be one essential step in curtailing the mounting toll of life and property loss from fires and accidents. When il is realized thai agriculture employed 16 percent of the nation's workers in 19-13, yet contributed 24 percent of all fatal accidents, the largest number Of six major industries, the necessity for ycar-'roiind precautions to prevent fires and injuries is clearly .apparent. 4 'flic National Safety Council estimates that the time loss alone from these accidents was equivalent to twice the amount of labor necessary to produce thei annual wheat crop of the United JStates CORRECTION Our advertisement in Wednesday's Courier News quoted Rhythm Step shoes at 7.50 per This was in error. pair. 1 RHYTHM STEP SHOES are Advertised Nationally at. .
