Alternates are August Meyer and Cara McKinney, both of Lansing. Iowa apparently will have a re duction in traffic deaths this year second only to the "pojnt system" year of 1958, the state safety department predicted today. Early this month, the state's highway death toll was running 65 below last year, and only eight deaths ahead of the toll in 1958 when introduction of the point system brought a record reduction. All year long. Iowa has been ranked among the top 10 states in the nation showing reductions in traffic fatalities, according to the National Safety Council. State safety officials are hopeful that, by the end of the year, at least 75 lives will have been saved on Iowa highways compared to last year. •"It all depends on the ability of our drivers to get through the dangerous Christmas and New Years holidays without an excessive death toll," Safety Commissioner D. M. Statton said. The safety department now is conducting a "Thou Shalt Not Kill" campaign in an attempt to remind motorists of their moral responsibilities behind the wheel. Statton said most of the headway in safety this year has been made on Iowa's primary highways where there have been approximately 45 fewer deaths than last year. Deaths on secondary roads are about 20 below last year, but the urban death rate is the same as 1959. amining the shoes you wear. The back of a shoe worn on a pronated foot will "lean" inward. Excessive perspiration of the feet .„ sometimes an indication of foot weakness, Dr. Fox notes. Also a puffy-looking foot may be weak. If you press on the top of your foot and the indentation remains and natural color is slow in returning, you may have some kind of foot weakness, although the puffiness may be the result of other conditions in the body. If your feet and legs ache after moderate work, you should suspect poor foot posture, she warns. If you arc on your feet for an excessively long time or if you are doing more walking than you usually do, your feet will probably ache. In such cases, this is no sign for alarm. If, however, your feet hurt after only moderate work and walking, you would be wise to look for the cause. 101 Parents At I PHS Conferences Ono-hundred-one parents of high school students (grades 0-12) enrolled in the Postville high school came to school last week to hold conferences with the teachers of their children. These parents represented almost 50 per cent of the 217 students enrolled in these grades. Last year when corresponding conferences were held 92 parents came to school for such conferences. The faculty of the high school is pleased that so many parents accepted the special invitation to come to school for these conferences. Parents are invited to come to school at anytime that they feel a special need for confer the teachers. Parents«, vlted to visit classes in Postville schools at the! ence.

O'Riley. Fred says Norval Wardle, farm safety specialist at Iowa State University, points out that children are badly mangled and killed each year in Iowa when their curiosity, leads them too close to moving parts on grain elevators, self-unloading wagons and similar equipment. Parents, Wardle says, have a responsibility to make sure their children know how and where to avoid this danger. Even if your children are trained to stay away from dangerous equipment, Wardle says, visiting children may not be as fortunate. This is added reason for tak ing all possible steps to eliminate danger spots. | The belief that you don't need to | shield slow-moving power shafts oh farm equipment is a common mistake of many Iowa Farmers, Wardle says. Because of this, farmers tend to be less alert to the possibility of getting caught in the shafts and are slower to warn their children to keep away. All power shafts are death traps and should be shielded regardless of their speed. Placing machinery so you and your children don't have to work or walk near moving parts is an excellent safety practice, Wardle says. Bright-colored warning devices near danger points will also help keep children away. Nearly every year, Wardle says, some unwary Iowa child crawls into a self-unloading wagon and slips into the unloading equipment. Other children have suffocated in past years when they were pulled into the chutes of grain bins. Children and moving machinery parts just don't make a happy com bination, Wardle stresses. Don't decrease your children's chances for growing up by letting them think these parts are toys. Iowa City—A highly arched foot is not necessarily a strong foot, nor is a low arch always a sign of foot weakness, says Margaret Fox, professor of women's physical educa tion at The State University of Iowa. A footprint which shows whether you have a high or low arch is no longer used to measure foot strength, she explains. A low arch may be quite strong: it may be the natural shape of your foot. Or muscles in the foot may have par tially filled in the arch. By the same token, a foot with a high arch may be a weak foot. Pronation, or inward tilt of the heel, is one of the most frequently found foot problems, Dr. Fox says. SUBSOILING SELDOM PAYS SAY SOIL SCIENTISTS Dos'Moines—Research has shown few benefits from either deep tillage or deep fertilizer placement in the Midwest according to Dr. W. E. Larson, soil scientist at Iowa State University. Dr. Larson's conclusions, as reported in an article appearing in! the current issue of the Journal of Soil and Water Conservation, are supported by thorough investigations carried out in Iowa, Illinois, and Missouri during the 12 years. Dr. Vernon Jamison, soil scientist at the University of Missouri and W. G. Lovely, agricultural engineer at the Iowa State University are Larson's co-authors. Deep tillage and deerj fertilizer placement sometimes increase yields, but the costs increase greatly with the depth of soil treatment. For instance, in Iowa, subsoiling 24 inches deep decreased corn yield 9.7 bushels per acre on Edina silt loam in 1956 and 6.4 bushel yield decrease was noted in 1957 on Grundy silt loam soil. In many of the tests it was evident that corn yields were better when the fertilizer was plowed down, rather than placed at a 16 inch cieoth. Lower corn yields for the 16 inch deep fertilizer placement as compared to plow layer fertilizer placement were still noticeable three years after aoplication on Webster-Glencoe soil. The true value of any yield increase must be considered in relation to costs necessary for obtaining the increase asserts Dr. Larson. The research data, accumulated from tests at various locations on all major soil types has consistently indicated that subsoiling seldom pays. In conclusion the authors state: It is doubtful if expensive subsurface soil treatments will give economic returns for corn, alfalfa, or other forage crops where good fertility and management practices are used on the normal surface plow layer.
