People are using 10 to 12 jmes as much water as they used to, says Carl Edwards, agricultural engineer with the Michigan State University C o operative Extension Service. Today we use at least 40 gallons of water per person each day. In the cities the amount may run as high as 167 gallons per day when the water for industrial uses is taken into account. Cities throughout the country are facing water shortage problems. Many are drilling new and deeper wells in search o f additional supplies of water. Edwards says that the problem is not one for the city fathers, but it must be tackled in the individual homes. Even with all of our modern equipment, such as dish washers, garbage disposers, and automatic washing machines w e can preserve many gallons of water each day. We can become water managers, rather than water wasters, if we follow these water saving practices when we bathe', launder clothes or merely wash our hands: 1. Be sure your toilet flush tank valve—the one in the bottom of the tank —shuts off completely after every flush. After i the tank has filled and the inlet valve has automati c a lly 12 quarts instead of 20 to 24 quarts per flush. 4. You can install a recently developed flush control valve which allows a small flush with about one-half the usual amount of water. This volume of water is usually sufficient for flushing, Pesticide Safety Rules Are Noted MADISON — Needless tragedy can be avoided by strict observance of one ol the basic pesticide safety rules — alwayi keep all pesticides in the original labeled container, e m , phasing Ron Doersch, weed but If not, the lever can be j contro i specialist at the Univer- vaccinates over 30 months o age. Certified herds and herds which have had a herd test within 12 months may exhibit ° a pushed a second time or held down to use a complete tank of water per flush. 5. Don't let faucets drip, o r you'll waste gallons of water per day. Leaky hot water faucets are especially costly, since you are paying for wasted heat as well as the water. 6. You can save water by filling the sink bowl with a small amount of water to wash your hands instead of letting the water run while you scrub. 7. Use a new type mix i n g faucet which can be pre-set for the amount of hot water in the mix before starting the flow of water. Then, no water is wasted while you adjust the mix to a desired temperature. 8. When you take a shower, use a stopper in the tub and check the amount of water you use. If it exceeds the amount for a reasonable tub bath, the shower is wasteful. 9. Adjust the water level In the washing machine for the size load to be washed. Do a full load each time the machine is filled. 10. Some types of sprinkle r s throw water around and much of it evaporates before it touches the ground. Irrigate only and use a request for an exhibition certificate. Following is a list of the re-!

If | sprinkler which puts the water is not! on the ground instead of in the air. None of us want to be withou the use of our modern appli ances, but we can't continui using them at our present rati of water consumption. Edward says, "These suggestions souni austere, but not half so austere as we'll have to be if the wel goes dry." shutting off and the water going through the toilet bowl is wasted. 2. Check the flush tank float valve for the proper level and U.P. Fair Books Are Distributed ESCANABA — Premium books for the 1965 Upper Peninsula State Fair are off the press p-nd ready for distribution, Cliff Perras, fair manager, has reported An innovation this year is the three-color cover for the prize winning design by a young Manistique artist, Dietm a r Krumrey Each year the cover is designed by an Upper Peninsula High School student and last year's winner was Darlene Waatti, Houghton. Copies of the premium book may be obtained at the U. P. State Fair office in Escanaba. Copies are also available at offices of county agricultural the thousands on sunny sides of companied by said certificate agents and Chambers of Com- the house after leaving theirj when presented for entry t o ! merce in the region. Two thousand copies have been printed. The premium book contains a complete listing of the awards winter homes. Brucellosis should be done at least two weeks prior to opening date. Permits are good for 90 days. 3. All testing and requests for exhibitioin certificates of record should be made in the herd owner's aame —individual family owners, such as son o r daughter, etc., may list their names opposite the individual animal. 4. All animals requiring certificates of record or vaccination certificates must be ac- ground or barns. Failure to have flow pipe in the tank after the tank is filled, the float is rising too high in the tank and is not closing the valve, or the valve is defective and is not stopping the water flow. sity of Wisconsin. it is important to store these chemicals in an inaccessible place such as a locked cabinet, since most accidents with pesticides are caused by improper torage and handling. Never transfer these ma- erials Into another contain e r . even though you think you will emember what the chemical s, without the label, you can :ever be certain of the product vou are handling, and there is no way to check the directions and precautions. Recently a Wisconsin man died because a weed-killer was stored in a beverage bottle and then consumed by mistake. The weed-kiling chemical, sod- um arsenite, is highly toxic compared to other herbicides ommonly used. A m i n ute amount of the sodium arsenite, 1-40 of an ounce, is calculated to be fatal to a 150 pound man, as compared to atrazine, another herbicide that has a lethal dose of 4 ounces. Arsenites and arsenates are hazardous to work with and have largely been replaced b y newer and safer pesticides that do the same job. Doersch says. However, due to the low cost of the arsenite and arsena t e compounds, many people sti 11 use these materials. If you must use sodium ar- senite, Doersch stresses, a 1 ways keep it in the original, labeled container and out o f children's reach. Last year a Wisconsin child died after tasting an arsenite compound. Wear protective clothing and use a respirator and goggles when applying the chemical. Ar- senites will burn your skin.

Articles on exhibit must be the work of students of any or all grades from kindergarten through the twelfth grades. Adults can assist in setting up the exhibits and arranging for appropriate identification signs. Premium awards will be paid to the School District. Individuals or schools may be singled out for special mention but will not be eligible for cash awards. Judging wil be based on quality and not quantity. Consideration will be given the age and grade of the exhibitors as well as the ing homes through cracks and swarming on walls and furniture. Don't suck them up in v a c u um cleaners. They are easily crushed and make un - sightly stains. To prevent infestations, spray fused entry. It is suggested that offered for prize winning e x all cattle having certificates have the name of the animal on the top of the certificate.

Michigan Feedlots Have 110,000 Cattle LANSING (AP) — Michigan feedlots had 110,000 head of cattle and calves on feed as of July 1, reports the Michigan Crop Reporting Service.
