Fir* prevention nulhorliles point out that now Is n good time for farmers to eliminate fire hazards and develop proper safety habits In order to guard ngatnst Ihe threat of disastrous fire next winter. Farm fires, which kill approximately 3,500 persons each year and destroy property valued at $100 million, arc most numerous during the winter months, reports show. Prevention measures taken now will pay off In greater safely laler. Source! l.lslerl About 85 per cent of all farm lire losses originate from the following sources: defective chimneys and flues; lightning; sparks on roofs; gasoline and petroleum products; matches and smoking; spontaneous Ignition; stoves, finances and heating pipes; hoi ashes and coals. Looking further for the cause of the fires, the experts say much of the blame can he laid to carelessness and the use of combustible exterior building materials, Farmers are cautioned to be careful In smoking, sec that children do not play with matches, avoid using kerosene or other petroleum products to start stove fires, shun use of flammable cleaning fluids, a oily rags, keep farm buildings free of rubbish, and deposit hot coals and ashes in galav.imzcd steel or other types o| metal cans. Those steps nre among (he fundamentals In common-sense fire prevention.

Exports from Malaya .SINGAPORE (AP)-The British Government is reported to have asked the Singapore government to consider guaranteeing Malayan produce exports to n,e United suites with a view to increasing the colony's dollar earnings. The products will include copra, palm oil. limber, sago, pineapples, rubber products,' Malayan Jewelery, sllerware and curios. Tin and rubber, which hae established markets, are excluded. The guarantees suggested will insure, exporters against the risk of opening up new markets similar to those given by Britain to encourage trade with the gold area. Termites and wood-destroying fungi cause damage estimated at more'than $50.000,000 a year, but science ',.; now making It relatively easy to protect a home against these forces. One common method of controlling termites Is to place metal shields between the foundation masonry and the wood resting on the foundation, These shields are to kill tcrmltea but to force them out In th« open where they can be seen ind destroyed. Another' way of controlling termites is to use chemical preservatives. Wood treated with the better kinds of commercial preservatives also Is resistant to fungi. Fungi and the destructive varieties of termites require moisture in order to exist. Consequently only well-seasoned lumber should be used and adequate ventilation provided as mean* of preventing excessive moisture condensation.
