t A '-i- i vvKNTY-EKiHT ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 1963 SW Farm Column Warns About Corn-Pickers By ALBERT MEYER With the corn picking season not many weeks away, J. J. Paterson. Southern Illinois University farm safety specialist, sounds advance warning that carelessness in Using mechanical pickers only adds to the annual harvest of hands, arms, legs and lives. Corn pickers are among the most dangerous of farm machines, Paterson says, but most of the dangers come from improper operation and failure to follow recommended safety practices. If farmers will stay alert to possible dangers they stand a good chance of escaping being killed or maimed during the corn harvest. Paterson suggests these f » w simple rules to cut down the toll: 1. Never reach into the corn picker while it is running to remove stalks lodged in the snapping or husking rollers. Always stop the picker and disengage the power take-off before leaving the tractor seat to clean or adjust the picker. The same general rule will apply to self-propelled pick- er-shellers. 2. Keep all ( remain alert to danger and never take safety for granted. Moving corn harvesting machines along roads also is dangerous, especially if at night. Farmers should avoid night use of roads if possible. Red flags on a standard the guards and shields in place on moving parts, especially on the power take - off shaft. 3. Put the picker in good running condition before taking it to the field. Cleaning, lubricating and properly adjusting the machine will mean less clogging trouble in the field and a saier picking job. 4. Operate the machine according ,to the manufacturer's recommendations. The farm equipment manufacturers build corn harvesting machines with safety and efficiency in mind, but farmers often get in a hurry and grow careless. Nearly two - thirds of the corn harvesting accidents occur with the corn picker, 5. Keep children away from corn harvesting machines. Real safety results depend on each individual farmer. He must above the machines will help in daytime. Put reflectors or reflective tape on outside corners of the machine for night moving, or use a standard safely light showing amber in front and red in the rear for placement on the left edge of the machine. Booklet Tells Why Don't Expect Too Many Letters From Freshman CARBONDALE, 111 (Special)— College freshmen are busy people — don't expect a letter every night, says a new booklet, "The University Student in Your Family," mailed to the parents of more than 3,000 entering freshmen at Southern Illinois University. The publication opens with a foreword by I. Clark Davis, director of student affairs, which contains the sobering statistic that only one in three of the beginning students will be graduated four years hence. "The ones who succeed," Davis says, "will, in most cases, do so because of a sound background, the willingness to make personal sacri- AT LAST...A HEW ANTI-PERSPIRANT DEODORANT THAT KEEPS YOU REALLY DRY! chaperone ANTI-PERSPIRANT Mew CHAPERONE ANTI-PERSPIRANT fives you total protection against perspiration problems, even if you perspire heavily...keeps underarms completely dry and fresh.

The booklet discusses adjustment to university life, problems of registration and orientation, a budget for living expenses, health and counseling services, and has tliis sage advice for parents on homesickness: "We have found on many occasions that homesick problems are in the parents and not the students. During the first month or so of school our students are kept so busy that they rarely have time to think about being homesick. So try to avoid too many calls, frequent visits or insistence on weekends at home." Dean Davis ends with these re| assuring words for worried parents: "The young women and men who attend Southern Illinois University represent a cross section of American society. The overwhelming majority of our students gain in maturity each year and show an increased respect for morality and law. The few young people whose actions are- publicized as anti-intellectual are not typical of the hardworking and conscientious college student.
