Danger Can Lurk In The Medicine Chest Postville RefrigeratifiB Service Harold J. Sebastian, Prop. | POSTVILLE, IOWA wm Don't overlook the family medi cine chest while doing your spring housecleaning, warn safety experts of the Accident Prevention Department, Association of Casualty and Surety Companies. The advice goes goes for career girls and bachelors as well as housewives, because a sip from the wrong bottle can be fatal. Two main rules to remember regarding your medicine chest or the shelf where you keep the family dosages is (1) keep poisons away and (2) discard leftover medicines as soon as you stop using them. Turn Lights On Most adults are careful enough to keep medicine chests high enough to be out of reach of small children, the Department reports, but there remains the danger of adults grabbing the wrong bottles when they sleepily reach for something in the middle of the night. A lethal bottle of poison may feel like the cough medicine in the dark, but the results get rid of you as well as the cough. Always turn the light on when getting something out of your medicine chest, warns the Accident Prevention Department, and take the double precaution of marking poison bottles, no matter where you store them. One good method is to tightly tie on the tops of poison bottles with double-knotted cord. This makes opening the bottle difficult enough to cause even the sleepiest person to glance at the label. Old Medicines Tempting Old medicines should be thrown out because they are often either useless or dangerous. Some lose their strength in time and may prolong or aggravate your illness. Others— tincture of iodine, for example—become too strong as a result of evaporation of water or al- sohol. Besides, if medicines are not thrown away when you are through with them, there is a dangerous temptation, next time you are ill, to take a few more swallows without first consulting a doctor to see if you are suffering from the same ailment. With the exception of tooth pastes, shaving lotion and other such harmless toilet articles, nothing should be put into the medicine chest without the advice of your physician. Hell advise you that boric acid, vaseline, a good ointment for burns and aromatic spirits of ammonia are considered good standbys to have on hand for emergencies. Adhesive tape and sterile gauze might also be placed in the medicine chest But remember that after the wrapper is broken the gauze is no longer sterile. Herald Want Adi bring results.

This was proved in tests conducted on Iowa dairy, herds last year. Actually, it wasn't the DDT alone that did the trick. Farmers who got the extra bonus of milk practiced a thorough fly-control program as recommended by the Iowa State Department of Health, the State Department of Agriculture and the Extension Service of Iowa State College. Tests on 26 Herds During 1947 careful comparisons were made on 13 pairs of dairy herds in the state. As nearly as possible, each pair of herds was of the same .bloodlines. They were managed under similar conditions, and fed and milked in the same manner. But one herd in each pair used fly control methods, including strict sanitation and the use of DDT. The other herd merely continued under any ordinary fly control practices which its owner had been used to following. In a 60-day test period the average increase in milk production per cow was 3.3 pounds per day in the fly-free herds as compared to the others.' That was about a 10 per cent increase, according to Harold Gunderson, Iowa State College entomologist. Sanitation Too —The fly control methods which brought the increase included first of all good sanitation. It meant cleaning up old stack bottoms, hauling manure regularly, and guarding against other filth where flies might breed. In addition, the inside walls of barns were sprayed with DDT at the rate of one gallon for every square foot. Two pounds of 50 percent DDT wettable powder was mixed in five gallons of water to make the spray. A similar DDT spray was applied to the cows every two weeks dur ing the test. One pound of 50 per cent wettable DDT was used in 10 gallons of water for early sprays. This was increased to two pounds of 50 percent DDT weftable powder in five gallons of water during the latter part of the tests. Give Dairy Cows Shade To Keep Up Production Dairy cows need shade during hot weather if they are going to hold up in production and maintain the value of the milk or cream check, says Floyd Arnold, extension dairyman at Iowa State Col lege. He / points out that milk cows get mighty uncomfortable when the thermometer goes above 80 degrees. On hot days a cow actually does extra work in an effort to keep cool. As a result milk production goes down. The best place for shade is near the water tank or on the high spot in the pasture where cows usually congregate, Arnold says. A few poles for framing a shed, woven wire to made a roof and straw or tree branches to cover the wire are all that is needed. Arnold points out another method that many dairymen use to keep cows more comfortable' in hot weather. They put their cows in the barn during the hottest part of the day. By darkening the windows with a water-soluble paint or covering them with gunny sacks, the barn may be quite comfortable. Many dairymen use a fan to circulate the air. In addition to doing as much as possible to keep cows comfortable, Arnold says that a dairyman should be sure the cows get an abundance of good quality feed. Don't rely on short or dried-up pastures, he says. On hot days, even if the pas ture is good, cows will not graze enough to maintain both their bodies and their milk production from grass alone. Supplement pasture by feeding hay, silage or both. High produc ers should have some grain. If the pasture is dry and the cows are getting little or no hay, one pound of grain to four to five pounds of milk produced daily will be profit able, Arnold says. FORTUNATE At Whittemore, Bob Higgins purchased the former home of Mrs. Millie Kortum, which had stood vacant and undisturbed for more than a year. Workmen found over $500 in coin and small bills, tucked away in envelopes in some card board boxes.
