12 July 21, 1948 MBMB City GUbe-Gaieite, MBIOU Cliy. I». Plan to Reduce Farm Accidents Iowa Joins National Campaign for Safety Am •Iowa joins every other •tate in the union Sunday in an Intensive week-long campaign to remove accident hazard on farms. President Harry S. Truman has proclaimed next week national farm safety week. The president calls for the elimination of 30,000,000 farm hazards. Iowa's share of the goal is 800,000 hazard removals, one for each member of every farm family. Note 3 Objects The safety campaign in this state will be focused on 3 objectives: First, to teach .farm folks how to recognize accident hazards; second, how to remove them and third, how to live safely with accident hazards that cannot be removed. Iowa farm folks should have no trouble finding hazards to remove, Noryal Wardle, farm safety specialist at Iowa Ctate college, points out. 4-H boys clubs in 12 counties recently made 1,323 inspections, and reported an average removal of 5 hazards at each inspection. Wardle says that even then not all hazards were removed from places inspected. While this special week has been set aside for a concerted drive to make Iowa farms safer places to live and to work, Wardle says that this goal will only be accomplished if every week is safety week on every farm. Finding and removing hazards one week out of the year won't make farming as safe a business as it can be. He strongly recommends that farm families conduct regular hazard removal campaigns, with particular attention given to new equipment with which the family is not acquainted. Hazards Revealed Results of a survey taken in Cerro Gordo, Linn and Bremer counties indicate where Iowa farmers are most likely, to find accident hazards. Accidents while at work lead the list, accounting for 43.9 per'cent of all farm mishaps. Fourteeen per cent of the accidents occur in the home. Traffic accounts for 12.3 per cent and miscellaneous, 29.8 per cent. Of all farm accidents, 28.1 per cent were caused by falls, followed by' machines with 17.5 per cent. Wardle reminds that farm folks be especially careful while haying and harvesting. Both involve machinery and present chances for falls. This list of contributing factors was given by farm folks: Hurrying, 19.3 per cent; carelessness, 5.3 per cent; safety devices not used, 3.5 per cent; tired, 1.2 per cent; no contributing factor, 19.5 per cent and other than listed, 7.6 per cent. 739 deceive Degrees, Certificates of /owa Sfofe H E R E T H E R E Return From Norway Crystal Lake—Mr. and Mrs. Ole Rosen and son who left the latter part of February for their native country Norway, returned to their home here recently.
