Mrs. Joseph Harnack. ST. PAUL'S LUTHERAN CHURCH Frederick R. Ludwig, Pastor CAREFUL PLANNING WILL REDUCE HOME HAZARDS Take a tip from the industries and apply it to your own home. Industrialists study safety precautions thoroughly, knowing that as workers become more skilled and familiar with their surroundings, they often take more chances. So it is in the home, home economists believe. Homemak- eis often fail to see danger in their homes because each article in itself ^eerns harmless. According to Josephine Booton, of the Home Management Department at Iowa State College, more people are killed by accidents in the home than anywhere else. Miss Booton believes that many future accidents can be prevented in the careful planning and building or remodeling of homes. Stair rails are a "must" she believes, as are sturdy step-stools for reaching high cupboards and closet shelves and for hanging curtains. Accidents from hot liquids can nearly always be avoided. Handles of pans holding hot food should be turned in so that family members cannot brush against them. And another fire-preventing tip: Keep dust cloths in glass jars so they cannot ignite by spontaneous combustion. Articles dangerous to children musl be kept out of their reach. Ash Wednesday service this evening at 8:00 o'clock. "Christ Speaks from Calvary to the Poor," is the subject of the meditation.
