Made of broadcloth, in a fresh blue-green color, the one-piece garment combines many of the traditional features of the familiar middy-style uniform which 4-H girls have long worn, with a modernized "new look" typical of 1948 fashions. Plain but pert in style, the uniform features a six-gored flared skirt, short sleeves with self-turned cuffs, an adjustable self-belt and a white tie. Two rows of white braid on a middy-type collar carry out the traditional note of the 4-H uniform. A concealed slide fastener provides a long front opening to make the dress easy to get into. Extension clothing specialists, Iowa State College, utilized the suggestions of 4-H leaders in redesigning the dress. It is cool, easy to care for, simple to make and flattering to a girl at any age. At. this same time, an "Advance" pattern for the dress will be available. White anklets and shoes are regulation footwear to complete the Iowa girls' 4-H club costume. Reduce Fire Hazards Around Farm Buildings Farm barns burn down every year because someone was neglectful, and similar neglect could cause a Allamakee County barn to burn, Smoking in or around the barn is a cause of many fires, says Norval Wardle, extension safety specialist at Iowa State College. Lighted matches and "live" ashes thrown around by careless smokers set the barns afire, he explains. Wardle says not to strike matches in the barn. Light the lantern before entering instead. If matches must be carried, carry the safety kind that can be lighted only on the box or cover. Now, with National Farm Safety Week only a few weeks away, is a good time to remove and correct fire hazards around the barn, and the farm. If the barn is wired, use correct size fuses and solid, clean, well-insulated electrical connections. He reminds that lightning rods do their job only when they are grounded. It is poor policy to store tractors and trucks in barns, or to keep fuel in barns. Keep the ground around the barn free of. all litter that might catch fire from sparks.
