Premiums are gauged according to the number of acres in the farm, coverage of the policy, sets of farm buildings and number of employes. In Iowa, farm employers can also elect to be covered by workmen's compensation. This is an insurance program provided by law on the theory that the risk of injuries and human loss should be borne by industry as part of its normal costs, much like depreciation on machinery. Compensation is provided through this insurance program for injury or death of an employe regardless of the employer's fault, and ihe amount of indemnity is predetermined by the type of injury. Workmen's compensation is explained in a booklet called "Iowa Law of Workmen's Compensation," available for $2.50 from the SUI Bureau of Labor and Management, Iowa City.

"More attention is being given to protective devices on farm machinery, but these machines still lack the safety devices of comparable industrial machines," believe researchers at the SUI Agricultural Law Center who are engaged in a study of the farm employer's legal liability to injured employes. Many farmers are lax in maintaining protections that are supplied and in giving instruction to their employes about safe operations, ' the SUIowans continue. Farm safety campaigns are important, they say, but they have not yet attained maximum effectiveness. Farm operations today are complex and result in mor^ -= 1S - nificant injuries and damages than in earlier years, the SUI researchers observe. Such things as the increased use of powerful sprays and dusts, the enlargement of farming operations and resulting increase of vehicles on public highways, and a larger population of both humans and farm animals have increased opportunities for injuries. Greater financial responsibilities are being imposed upon the farmer for injuries and damages that do occur. The farmer is more frequently held responsible for injuries and damages, and he is required to pay large amounts for many injuries that occur. There is a growing recognition by farmers of the importance of reducing the frequency and severity of farm accidents and injuries, the SUI lawyers say. Practices in industry, workmen's compensation laws, farm safety programs and insurance companies have fostered this recognition, but the farmer is still just beginning to awaken to the potential liabilities of his farm operation. A farmer can protect himself in several ways against financial losses that may arise out of injuries to employes. He can bear his own risk and maintain liquid assets in an amount large enough to pay possible judgments. Or he may arrange to shift the loss in whole or The Grand Meadow Larks held their regular meeting in the Homemaking room on March 6, at 7:30 p. m.
