This information was released by Iowa State Fire Marshal, Wilbur Johnson, in urginp; a conscientious, state-wide observance of Fire Prevention Week in- Iowa, Octol>er 3 through October 9. "With the high-hazard months still ahead of us," Johnson said, "Iowa is already well on the way to a new all-time high for fire losses." Deaths, on the other hand, are lower. Johnson said that through August, 55 fire deaths had been reported to the Fire Marshal's office compared to GO for the same period last year. He cautioned, however, that it was still too early to make any final predictions on fire deaths. Johnson emphasized that most fires need never happen.

It's a matter of record," he added, "that these are to blame for 2 out of every 3 fires in Iowa this year I" "The important purpose of Fire Prevention Week," he said, "is to pause at the threshholcl of the heavy fire season for a sobering moment to take stock - to reeducate ourselves to the hazards of fire and to eliminate them as completely as possible at home, at school, at work and at play." Of all the places we spend out time, Johnson said, the home is generally the most poorly organized for fire safety, and listed' the factors most important in keeping our homes fire-safe: 1. Never leave small children alone. Even if you are leaving for only a few minutes, get a responsible person to stay with them. When going out for a con- 40 Percent In 1965 MR. ANT) MRS.
