They saw the farm get a complete facelifting and now many of those same people will return August 1 for a Soil Conservation Observance Day. Nearly a year ago the crowds stood on the banks of large gullies and saw them disappear, then seeded to rye and grass. They say fences come out and go in at the hands of 200 farmers, terraces built by another dozen farmers with tractors and plows. They saw pasture plowed, chisled, disced, harrowed, limed, fertilized and reseeded by F. F. A. boys of the Indianola high school and vocational agriculture classes. All operations were done on the contour. The crowds saw tiling machines operating, spring pipe line laid and concrete water tanks built. Diversions were built to protect gullied areas that were bladed in and also to protect the farm buildings. Waterways were conditioned and seeded. One large earth fill was built across a permanent drop inlet structure where another concrete wall structure had failed. More than 7 inches of rain last October and a large snowfall which went off with a two-inch rain did some damage, but that has all been repaired. "Things are looking up on the Bellman farm and will keep looking better," is the opinion expressed by Clay Barnett. The observance day will be sponsored by the Des Moines Register and Tribune, along with various Indianola and Warren county organizations. The theme of the day will be "The Soil, the Gift of God" and special services will be held that evening at the Warren county fairgrounds. Charles P. Taft, brother of Ohio's Senator Robert A. Taft. will be the principal speaker at the program. The speaker, who is president of the Federal Council of Churches of Christ, has often been called the outstanding Christian layman in America. 50 pound Block for $2.75 100 pound Bag for $4.50 Buy a bag or a block.

Nesset, Pastor Falls Cause Most Of The Farm Accidents Cler- East Sunday, August 1—West mont, service at 9:30 m. Clermont services at 11 a. m. Wednesday, August 4—West Cler mont Priscilla at 2:15 p. m. Thursday, August 5>-East Cler mont Societies at 2 p. m. Falls are the number one cause of all accidents on the farm. According to survey tabulation on the first six months of this year in three Iowa counties, falls caused 28.1 per cent of farm accidents. Norval W^ardle, extension farm safety specialist at Iowa State College, says the results of this survey in Cerro Gordo, Linn and Bremer counties is in agreement with nation statistics. One reason that falls rank so high is that they affect youngsters and older folks in all activities, including play and work. The in-between age group is subject to falls more during work because they don't spend so much time at recreation. A lot of falls occur when farmers make hay. Falling off a load of hay or out of the mow are common occurrences. When on a load of hay, stand somewhere so that a slip won't cause a fall, Wardle says. .The best place is in the middle of fine load or where a standard can be grasped. Faulty hay mow^ chutes are hazards. Check ladders and keep them in good repair. Have chute openings railed. Hand rails should extend up above the hay mow floor and painted a bright color so that they can be readily seen. All farm buildings should be adequately lighted. Wardle says that many falls can be avoided if this condition is met, especially on stairways or chutes in hay mows. In the home, most falls are caused by cluttered stairways. Stairs leading to the basement are number one hazards while those leading to the second floor are a close second. Falls are often caused by persons misjudging the last and first steps. Wardle suggests painting the top and bottom step' a different color or to make the stairs tread a different color from the stairs on the rise. Mats or rugs on stairs should be fastened to prevent a slip. At Anita, fifteen month old Richard Baylor was drowned when he fell head-first into a 10-gallon crock partially filled with rain water. 1 NEVER LOST AN ARGUMENT YET § | A cancelled check 1 | is proof in any court j | - that a bill has been paid. s | | Check'On The Friendly I Postville State Bank We Offer A Complete Banking Service Time to Re-Power ?
