Gardening, Yard Work Perils Cited IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - A 33-year-old housewife was operating a riding mower that unexpectedly swerved down a hillside into a ditch. She jumped from the machine, but didn't get out of its path and the wirling blades cut off her big toe. This is but one of thousands of injuries the Institute of Agricultural Medicine at the University of Iowa says it has documented. Institute Director Prof. L. W. Knapp says gardening and yard work, in a time of soaring food prices and fuel shortages, are becoming America's number one outdoor pastime, but they are "also an increasing health and safety concern." He said power lawn and garden equipment are among the most common hazards and cause some of the severest injuries. One authority lists power lawnmowers llth on a list of 50 general consumer hazards, and at the top of the yard and garden equipment category. William McConnell, agricultural safety engineer at the Institute, says "the great majority of injuries result from direct contact with the Future Bride Complimented ARCADIA — Kay Hoogestraat of Arcadia, June 8 bride-elect of.Mike.Be.rg of Westside, was honored at a shower Thursday evening in the home of Mrs. Don McDade. Mrs. Lee Nobiling was co-hostess. Decorations were in the bridal colors, yellow and white. Several games were played and gifts were opened. Lunch was served to 25 guests from Arcadia, Westside and Carroll. RAIN Lows in upper 40s and lower 50s.

Weather A Year Ago— Temperatures reached a high of 65 and a low of 39 degrees in Carroll a year ago today. rotating blades." "Such injuries are almost always severe and can almost always be avoided. The second main cause of injury is due to flying objects which the blade, moving at about 200 miles an hour, hits and drives out from under the mower.'' He said other garden equipment such as lawn trimmers and soil tillers also cause injuries. "The basic safety principle is to stay clear of moving parts and to make no repair or adjustment while the equipment is operating.' 1 McConnell says. "Above all, it is essential to protect children who should not have to learn the hard way about lawn and garden safety." Kelly Donham, chief of comparative medicine at the Institute, says, "The soil itself is anything but a clean environment. It contains a wide variety of bacteria and microorganisms that serve useful purpose in nature, but are a potential cause of infection to man." Tetanus is one of the most dangerous soil organisms, he says. "All fertilizers contain a large number of microorganisms," Donham says, "but those taken directly from animals have the added hazard of containing reproductive stages of parasitic worms that can infect man." "Artificial fertilizers, insecticides and herbicides are another danger of particular concern to children." John Diana, associate professor of physiology at the university, says "gardening "arid lawn care is a healthy source of physical activity if one avoids the over-exertion that can cause heart and circulatory problems, heat exhaustion, heat stroke and muscle or back strain." "He is one of the factors that can cause outdoor work to be a problem for even the healthiest person," Diana says.
