Two STERLING DAILY GA2ETTE, STIRLING. ILLINOIS October 15 1 J941 More People Are Killed in Homes Than in Industry Survey Mffde by Natl, Safety Group Shows How Accidents Go released by thf Na- Council show that in Fuurf.<: just tfonal Safety .. more fatal accldettts occurred homes than in industry during the pest venr Thirty-three thousand persons were kilted in homes dur Ing 1940. while only 16.500 were kill ed in industrial plant-' . To combat this tendency to ac eident in the home, the federal hous Ing administration suggests a check of the most dangerous spots in the house and their replacement or repair, if necessary. The survey shows that stairs nnd steps are the most dangerous spots in the house, since fall* accounted for 16,600 of the total fatal accidents. Bums accounted for 5,700 deaths. • Because of the detent program a nationwide campaign is being planned to keep home accidents down to a minimum. It is suggested that broken stops leading to basements or porches should be repaired Jt is also advisable to fix handrails for support in going up and down •talrs. and if the bottom step is not readily visible it may be wise to paint it white. To guard against spontaneous combustion. It is urged that all wast* materUls not needed be destroyed. Inasmuch as oily rags, .rags used in painting, newspapers and magazines, -and-many other materials stored in unventilated closets may start a fire •t any time. Regular cleaning of furnace and flue of soot also acts to prevent fires. Automatic heating controls ahould be checked regularly to as- •ure their good working order M a protection against overheating. Dr. Charles E. Medaris Of Rockford Speaks To Sterling Rotary Club Pr.
