Childish * Curiosity Shocking ·Childish curiosity mixed with electricity produces many sud den tragedies around homes. Statistics show that more thnn 40.000 children under five years are killed or seriously inj u r o d each year as a result of homo electrical accidents, says 0. L. Ifogsett. extension safety specialist at the University of Illinois, College of Agriculture. Most of these mishaps originate from open-type baseboard out lets and from lamp or other floor cords. The second ranking cause is cctffee pots and other appli *i .'ices left connected after u s e. IUost fatal shocks occur when children poke bobby pins, tableware or other metal objects into outlets find appliances. Fray e d extension cords that may short- circuit when handled by toddlers are also dangerous. Hogsett lists the following prcr cautions for parents to take: Provide some covering for baseboard outlets that cannot be removed by tiny hands. Tamperproof outlets are now on the market to provide maximum safety. Inspect all cords to make sure that there are no exposed wires or loose plug connections. Ho- place defective cords and plugs at once. Disconnecf all , appliances Immediately after use, and m a k e sure that children cannot reach them while they are in operation. Never leave wiring exposed or unattended white electrical r e pair and changes are made, arid never work on live circuits, Remember that children normally cannot withstand as much electric current as adults. A shock fom ordinary house c u r rent can he just as fatal as one from high-voltage lines.

Jn making the awards, Peter Vahderveld, director of the company's safety program, pointed out that Barrington Trucking has just completed one of its most accident-free years. "Our trucks," he said, "traveling over 228,000 miles, in all types of traffic conditions, were involved in "only two minor, property damage accidents' during the past 12 months. We are extremely proud of this enviable record." Scott Trimble, Harrington rd., Barrington, was awarded a three- year safe driving pin. William Hafferkamp, route 2, McHenry, earned a two-year pin. ,Fred Foerster, Cuba rd., Barring.ton and Robert Clark, Roberts rd., McHenry, were awarded o n e- year pins. The company has done a remarkable job of keeping its drivers safety-conscious. In addition to the safe driving pin awards, the men are given annual monetary awards for accident-free driving records. National Safety Council posters and stickers are posted -prominently in the trucks and on bulletin boards. Literature is sent regularly to the home of each driver and safety .meetings are -held periodically. Mr. Vanderveld feels that this effort has' paid off by making our neighborhoods safer places in which to live. 77- Year-Old Seed Firm 4 ri Locates in Northwest Area Over 100 years of combined experience in the seed and nursery business is offered to customers of the new Hollenbach Country Garden and Nursery, Algonquin and Wilke ids., according to the manager, Walter Jungling, In addition to a complete line of seeds, grasses, .spring flowering bulbs, evergreens., shrubs and gardening tools, Holle'nbach's offers helpful information to area gardeners in solving problems or planning a planting program. * # * HOLLENBACH S E E D CO., Inc., was formerly located i n Chicago for 77 years, last at 808 W.

Farmers Pay Record Size Tax Bills Illinois farm landowners paid a record-sized tax bill of $106 million this year, according to N. G. P. Krausz. University of Illinois, Professor of Agricultural Law, This tax, based on 1957 assessments, jumped "U per cent over the year before and is 348 per cent more than in 1940. Real Estate taxes absorbed almost 11 per cent of total Illinois net ;farm income irt 1957, Krausz figures. · Among corn-belt states, Illinois tax levies were the highest. Illinois land carried an average tax levy of S3.50 per acre, while remaining corn - belt states av - craged only $1.77. The avera g e tax per acre for ail states was $1.97. Only four northeastern states carried higher tax levies than Illinois. Some might think that the high value of farm land in Illin o i s compared with other states may explain the higher taxes. B u t when taxes are computed on the basis of 5100 full value,, the Illinois tax levies jumped near 1 y five per cent this past year, while the U.S. average went up only 1.1 per cent and other corn - belt states increased less than .3 per cent. So, .even figuring this way, Illinois remains among the leaders in per cent of tax increase. The lion's share of real estate taxes is used for, public schools, Krausz points out. School enrollment rose 33 per cent from 1946 to 1956, and another 40 per cent jump is expected by 1965. This rapid climb in school population creates unprecendented needs for new schools, more teachers and more operating' revenue. So, as long as the lax structure remains basically the same in Illinois, the result will be more increases in real property taxes, Krausz concludes. (Fm Revoke Driver's License Of Arlington Hts.

This adds up to a third of a million a month, four million every year! Each is naked, unfed, needing all of the things necessary for human existence and creat- % ing a staggering market of goods and services to be rendered. All of these babies need food and clothing now. In a few months they will create a market for infants' toys. In a few months another need j for more clothing arises. Along with this clothing need comes the need for juvenile furniture, more advanced and educational toys, and of course, the constant need for food, but by now one of a different type. In America today, there are almost 70% more children under 5 years of age than we had in 1940. This creates a tremendous need for all of the things that children in this age bracket use, and at the same time guarantees another future market in the fast-fleeting short years to come. A market that calls for bicycles, teen age clothing, recreational activities. Later they will be driving autos, purchasing insurance, holding jobs of their own, buying properties,' etc. Billions of dollars worth of goods and services are needed now, and even more in the years to come. ' . Money invested in advertising NOW, will insure today's progressive mar- h ket, and at the same time put him in good stead for the years and the potential to come. that people buy now just adds to everybody's opportunity for prosperity. It all adds up to a $500,000,000,000 opportunity right now . . , because this staggering sum will be spent in the next few short years on the lives of these new citizens that come into the world at such a fast rate. They're outgrowing everything, they're going new places, they're ring* ing the bells of the nation's cash registers, increasing bank accounts as families grow, and they're taking it easy during their free time, using more recreational facilities than ever before. So this means a tremendous selling job on the part of the businessman i to guarantee himself a fair share of the $500,000,000,000. No matter who you are . . . no matter what you sell, or service you ren- · der . . . with 11,000 crying needs a day coming into the world. . . , WHO CAN SAY THAT BUSINESS IS BAD?
