•TMUMBAY, AUG. 4,19M ALOONA (Iowa) AOVANCt-S "/NK in my VEINS " By MARIAN INMAN Did you know that a new motion picture about Iowa entitled "The Eighth Day" is now ready for release through the Iowa Development Commission? The 29-minute color film was conceived in 1965 as a way of dramatizing the great strides low- ans have made and the tremendous prospects that await young lowans in their own state. Prints are available to schools and civic organizations from the commission without charge. However, ample notice should be given so that the showing can be properly scheduled since the number of prints is limited. "The Eighth Day" will also be shown on television on a sponsored basis. Organizations interested in showing tht film should contact the Iowa Development Commission, 250 Jewett Bldg., Des Moines, Iowa. "Iowa Visitors Mean Dollars For You" is the title of a new brochure available for distribution through the Iowa Development Commission. The flyer briefly details the importance of tourism to Iowa's economy. The brief sketch on Iowa's travel industry was taken from the 1964 "Copeland Report" prepared for the Iowa Development Commission by Dr. Lewis C. Copeland of the University of Tennessee. In recent years, the travel industry's steady growth has been a major factor in Iowa's economic vitality. According to the study, lOVa million tourists visitad Iowa in 1964. This represents nearly a 50 per cent increase over the last decade. During 1964, these travelers spent a record total of $357 million in the state. The brochure may b« obtained by contacting the Iowa Development Commission, Travel and Tourism Division, 250 Jewett Bldg., Des Moines, Iowa. The July-August issue of the "Farm Safety Review" is on my desk. It has three timely articles, Are you fit to drive?, Famiiy Safety around the clock, and Keep your farm pond safe. In the article, Family safety around the clock, they state, "There's no place like home. It is a man's castle, a woman's domain, a child's universe, and the heart and soul of family's life." And there's no place like home either, when it comes to accidents. Though we think of it as a refuge, more people get hurt in or around home than anywhere else. More than 28,000 men, women and children perish each year in home accidents, accounting for an accidental death toll exceeded only by traffic. In addition, untold millions suffer minor, but painful, home injuries that are measureable only by counting the billions of band-aids and gallons and tons of medicants we use to remedy them. The most likely victims of fatal home accidents are those under five years of age and those 65 and older. They account for seven out of 10 of the deaths while making up only a fifth of the population. Falls are the leading cause of accidental death among elderly people. Fire is a significant foe of both young and old, as is suffocation for infants. A wise homemaker will strive to make her household as hazard free and pleasant as possible for the safety of every member of the family. Accidents in and around your house cen be prevented. Good management also rasults in a more attractive, more livable home, and in the extra time for you to spend with your family, or with hobbies or community activities. The suggestions for safety around the clock are, get sufficient rest, arrange furniture for unobstructed movement about the house, make home pleasant to reduce accident-producing c - tension, plan flexible work schedule to avoid rush and fatigue, learn first aid and what to do in case of firs, provide ample storage space, teach family safe practices, recognize and remove hazards, select and use right equipment for the job, take good care of household appliances and equipment and make periodic home safety checks. • Carlton L. Zink, chairman, ASAE Safety Committee, writes an editorial on the privilege of living, I quote: Not many of us, 1 hope none, would consciously deny one of our fellow beings the privilege of living. We would not poison his water supply, put a bomb under the hood of his automobile, or connect a "hot line" to the body of his wife's washer. However, there are many things we might do without either malice or forethought that could have the same effect. Here are a few: While absorbed with other problems, blithely drive thro ugh a traffic light just in time to collide with another driver in the intersection. Submit to the "pleadings of the young" and carry Johnny or Suzy on the tractor fender, even while pulling a disk harrow, a grain drill, or a rotary mower. Assume that the farm pond, attractive as it may be on a hot summer day, will be visited only by children who can swim, and fail to have a couple of inflated inner tubes, with ropes attached, hanging on a post by the side of the pond. Figure that only rabbits and mice are going to fall into our open abandoned well or our unfenced manure lagoon. Allow the corn to grow tall right to the corner of the field that it may hide an oncoming car such as the one that "jumped out and killed the baby daughter of a friend. The privilege of living _ Are you foing to deny it to someone? How? Why? August is supposed to bring us days with a dreamy haze of heat, but July has done pretty well so far herself. But then, the rich fullness of summer is something to cherish, no matter how high the thermometer may sneak. So let s enjoy it while we may. Too soon we'll be griping about the cold. My freezer holds several planned meals for the any minute visit from daughter Alice and family from Texas. So we'll have more time to visit and less time to spend in meal preparation in this heat. It takes stifling days to appreciate the coolness of the lake and a picnic is a pleasant thing. I like to be up early and greet the new day while it gives me the first hint of the heat to come later on. I have volunteered to serve again this year in our high school office. I think everyone should go back to school and get a feeling of how wonderful the world can be, for education is growing and enlarging, and the future world is going to be • far better place, for the young of today are being trained to make it so. We must let nothing interfere with education, and we need better teaching, better equipment everywhere. Teachers must ever bear in mind that not scholarship, but character is the end of education; character that will use scholarship for the betterment of mankind, and »h« glory of Cod.
