CHECK FARM ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT FOR SAFETY Electricity, now an accepted thing on most Corn Belt farms, brings many hidden dangers along with its usefulness. While electricity can be used to work for you, lack of respect for its dangers may result in a. serious injury or even "death, says Norval Wardle, Iowa State College farm' safety engineer. There are several places on the farm and in the home that should be checked for safety, Wardle says. He advises that unless you can answer yes to the following questions, suggested by the National Safety Council, you remedy the situation before something happens: Is your washing machine safely grounded? Are your electric motors free from dust and trash? Are pull chains over or near wash bowls and damp floors provided with insulating links? Are all of your appliances and cords in good repair? Are you using an approved electric fence controller? Are all electric outlets out of reach from the bath tub? Do all of your appliances have the proper type cord? Are your electrical circuits equipped with proper size fuses? Has the wiring job been • approved, or insalled, by a competent electrician? Wardle adds two other questions, which assume importance in summer when thunderstorms prevail: • Do your buildings all have lightning rods? Are the lightning rods well grounded? A Sewing Machine In good condition has more trade-in value for that new post-war model. Be ready when they come. Get your machine cleaned and reconditioned now. J. A. Flynn, Calmar, Iowa Phone Herald Office in Postville—Phone No. 200. BIG FISH.
