10 POSTVILLE (Iowa) HERALD Wednesday, March 23, 1961 State News Letter- (Continued From Pago One) had stiff opposition from humane societies. Taxation. Senate Republicans are expected to hold a caucus this week to discuss taxation. A caucus • was held last week by GOP Senators but no agreement was reached on •whether there will be a major tax increase. Governor Norman Erbe has contended the state does not need any new taxes or higher rates than present. But his budget of $189 million has been drawing fire, especially from rural legislators who mote it proposes only a slight increase of $750,000 in agricultural land tax credits. Consequently many rural legislators are behind the move to boost the sales tax from two to three per cent as a means of increasing the credit payments as well as in increasing state aid to schools. One proposal being mentioned around statehouse corridors is to increase the sales tax to three per cent and also have liquor-by-the drink. This •would be a "package deal" in an attempt to appeal to border counties. Average Farm. A $200,000 capital investment probably will be required for the average Iowa farmer by 1975, according to Iowa State University ferm economist Raymond .-^Beneke. Speaking before an Ames agricultural conference on credit needs, Beneke said the investment per Sarin will continue to rise as the size of farms increase and the number of farmers decrease. In­ creasing farm size, and investments in fertilizer and machinery in addition to more intensive livestock production, will mean doubling the amount of capital needed by 1975. Beneke remarked.

BEEF IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM IS LAUNCHED IN THE COUNTY Farmers with beef cow herds in Clayton county are urged to consider taking part in a beef improvement program recently an nounced. The Clayton County Beef Producers Association is cooperating with the Extension Service in interesting herd cows owners in the program. The program, according to Max E. Sauerbry, County Extension di rector, will be identifying beef cows and their calves at birth time and a weighing, grading, indexing next fall at weaning. The idea of the program will be to have faster growing calves, better milking cows, improved confirmation and fewer cows that don't pay their way. Interested beef cattlemen are urged to obtain a copy of the pamphlet "A Improvement Pro gram for Iowa Beef Cattle". It is I available by contacting the Ex tension Office in Elkader.

Mark Byrnes, Allamakee County Farm Bureau president, said secondary roads are important not only to rural residents but to all businesses in the county and stale that are allied with agriculture. If the recommendations of the Iowa Highway Study Committee on the distribution formula for road use tax funds are followed, secondary roads will lose about $8 million. The Public Adminstration Service, an advisory group to the study committee, did not recommend a cut in secondary road funds. They suggested that the loss of road use tax funds for secondary roads be obtained from additional property taxes and from the state general fund. "This is unfair and is not practical," Mark emphasized. The maximum secondary road levy is 11.75 mills and the state average Iowa City—Greater dollar damages for injuries to employes seem to face Iowa farm employers as the increasing complexity of farm operations adds to the risk of substantial injuries to employes. This liability of a farm employer to his employes is the subject of a eragej le gal study being undertaken at millage levied for roads in rural ,T he State University of Iowa Ag- 'ricultural Law Center. An Iowa farm employer's legal The Highway Study Committee has recommended the following distribution formula: Primary roads — 50 per cent; secondary roads — 35 per cent; cities and towns—15 per cent. The present formula calls for 42 per cent to primary roads, 15 per cent to farm-to-market roads, 35 per cent to secondary roads and eight per cent to cities. However, the cities and towns are currently receiving two per cent "off the top" of the fund before the distribution formula becomes effective. There are other proposals for allocation of the road funds that would increase the money for cities and towns hut would not cause severe losses for the secondary roads he concluded. COMPLEXITY OF FARM OPERATION'S MEANS HIGHER DAMAGES TOR INJURIES areas is approximately 11 mills. Meanwhile, the cities and towns are—on an average—levying 4.8 mills out of a maximum of seven mills. Cities and towns—containing 70 per cent of the population- contribute $18 million per year in property taxes and special assessments. "Rural residents — only 30 per cent of the population — are contributing $32 million from property taxes for secondary roads." he stressed employe. If he was aware of the danger and still continued to work, he was considered to have assumed the risk of the job and could not recover for his injuries, By statute, Iowa has changed this rule so that if a defective piece of equipment causes an injury and the employer knew of the defect beforehand, the employe docs not assume the risk unless it was his duty to remedy the defect or unless the danger was so imminent that a prudent farm worker would have quit the job. If negligence of a fellow worker causes an injury, the employer generally is not liable if he has provided competent fellow workers. If the negligent person is a foreman or other supervisor who represents the employer in his responsibilities to employes, then the employer may be liable for the negligence of his representative. been an employer's one time an employe §1 required to show ^ negligence did not the injury.

"If the cities and towns need more road money, we are willing to support them . . . but not at the expense of secondary roads— vital to both rural and town residents and businesses." he added. Farm Bureau's position, as adopted last fall, is: "If the temporary fifth and sixth cents of the gasoline tax are made permanent, we believe this revenue should become part of the regular road use tax fund. "Changes made in the distribution formula for the road use tax fund should not reduce the amount of revenue now going to the secondary roads."

Under common law. an Iowa farm employer has live responsibilities to his employe—to provide safe tools and equipment with which to work, to provide a safe place to work, to warn and instruct the employe about any dangers which the employe could not be ex pected to discover, to provide com petent fellow workers and to make reasonable rules for the conduct of employes while at work. If the employer violates any of these five rules, he will probably be liable for any resulting injury. For example, if a farmer neglected to provide a shield for a power shaft, he would not be providing reasonably safe tools and might thus be held liable. If the defect or danger is hidden, the employer would be liable only if he knew or should have known about it. In an action for damages by an injured employe, the farm employer has three possible defenses which may prevent recovery or reduce the amount of damages. The employe may have "assumed the risk" of the injury; the injury might have been due to the negligence of another employe, or the injury might have been the result of the employe's own negligence.
