6-Algona, (la.) Upper Des Moines Tuesday, March 5, 1968 FARM PAGE } DEVELOPMENTS j FROM DEV ALOIS ,•••«••••••••••••••••• • Are you a young farm couple between the ages of about 21 and 40? Are you interested in making more money? Are you interested in learning more about Farm and Home Mange- ment to help reach these goals ? If so we would be interested in hearing from you. We will be holding a two-day Farm and Home Management school for couples during the latter part of March. We would like 15 to 20 couples at this and still have openings, so contact us if interested. Following the two-day school we would work with the interested couples on keeping farm and/or home records. Bill Turner, our Extension Farm Management Specialist for northwest Iowa, assists in this program. Either he or I would make a short spring and fall farm visit to make future plans or analyze farm records. Come next January he would assist in analyzing your records and the management cycle begins again. We like to work with a couple about three years and then move on to another group. Let us know if you are interested or if you have a neighbor or friend interested. I believe this to be a very good educational program because we work with the total farm, rather than just one segment of it like soybeans or hogs, for example. today it seems like spring and I know it won't be long before spring is here and with spring comes more farm work. We all know that farm work can be very hazardous. The more completely your farm is mechanized the greater the dangers become. A farmer must always be alert or he'll find himself maimed or killed. The Farm Safety Review for January and Feburary, 1968, lists types of farm occupations that the U.S. Department of Labor considers too hazardous to permit farmers to hire young people under 16 years of age to do. This doesn't mean that a younger person can't legally do these things for his parents. But if we value our children's health, physical abilities and life, should we ask them to do things for us that we can't hire someone else's child to do? What types of jobs are they ? Some are pretty obvious— others you might not have thought of as being especially hazardous. As a basic guide I would say that they depend upon the degree to which a person may be permanently harmed by a moment's carelessness. Here's the list in as brief a form as I can put it meaningfully 1. Handling toxic material. 2. Handling blasting material. 3. Flagging for an airplane spraying crops. 4. Driving a car, truck or bus on a highway. 5. Operating, driving or riding a tractor over 20 belt horsepower. 6. Operating and riding self- unloading equipment. 7. Operating and riding dumping or hoisting equipment. 8. Operating or unclogging any power driven equipment. 9. Felling and handling timber with a butt diameter of more than 6". 10. Working from a ladder or scaffold over 20 feet high (if s all right to climb them). 11. Work in gas tight enclosures such as a covered silo. 12. Working in small enclosures with a bull, boar, etc. Let's protect our children and give them a chance to grow up— and to grow up unmaimed. Whittemore Man Is Graduate RAMBLINGS I OflSU, Ames FROM RUTH MlllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllHUi March is certainly coming in like a lamb. I know that it is a month that can be very unpredictable and perhaps it will have turned into a lion between the time that I write this and the time that you read it. but WHITTEMORE -Mr. and Mrs. Reuben Butzke and Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Meyer attended graduation exercises at Iowa State University, Ames, Feb. 24. Donald L. Meyer, son of Mr. and Mrs. Meyer and son-in-law of Mr. and Mrs. Butzke, was one of the 438 who received diplomas. Mr. Meyer has accepted a position in the auditing department of Outboard Marine at Waukegan, 111. - o WED 25 YEARS Mr. and Mrs. Francis Foley celebrated their silver anniversary Sunday with open house in St. Michael's hall from 2 to 4. They have no family and retired, from their farm several years ago and came to Whittemore. Mr. Foley is a member of the 4 in 1 Fishing Club which consists of four retired farmers and all are expert fishermen. - o- Mr. and Mrs. Walter Struecker have retired from their farm four miles southeast of Whittemore and moved to town Saturday to the former Wilbur Roeber home. ' MEMOS FROM MARGARET Bloodmobile At Armstrong On March 7 FENTON - The Bloodmobile will be at the V.F.W. hall in Estherville Tuesday and Wednesday, March 5 and 6, from 1 to 7 p. m. Anyone wishing to donate blood there is asked to contact Mrs. Earl Bagan, 815 1st Ave. No., Estherville, for an appointment. The Bloodmobile will be at lowans are known to like their meat, potatoes and gravy and pies! Sad to say, this sometimes "shows" on many of us, too, in the form of fat in unwanted places. Studies on diets of Iowa school children tell us that they do not get enough iron, calcium, vitamin A and vitamin C, or translated into food, this means meat, dairy products, green and yellow vegetables and fruits.^ So, without too much effort many families could eat better, live better and feel better by adding — 1. Orange to breakfast menus (frozen orange is a good buy 4-5£ a serving). 2. One or more glasses of milk every day. Non-fat dry milk is used by all economic groups and costs 2? a glass compared with 6 1/2? for whole fluid milk - by mixing it 24 hours ahead and serving it cold. Substitute it for any and all cooking purposes. 3. A raw vegetable salad, either lettuce or cabbage — leave the high calorie dressings off it if you're a weight watcher. 4. A "good" serving of meat. School lunches always serve some meat 'or alternate, but not enough for the day's supply. A "less tender" cut of meat is just as nutritious as expensive steaks and chops, but it does take time and imagination to make them just as attractive. Mr. and Mrs. Edward Zinnel and Mrs. Liz Zinnel of West Bend were Sunday visitors at the Victor Dau home, Whittemore. Mrs. Paul Kampen and children spent a day last week with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Hart, Humboldt.
