EDITOR Farm Safely Week Is Worthwhile Event Natiorml Farm Safety Week has become an American institution. It richly deserves that distinction--for the ton of death and injury that accidents cuse to farmers and farm people is, and has long been, an urgent na- tional problem. This year the week is to be observed dur- ing the July 19-25 period, using as its theme "Safer American Families Everywhere." It ,has been proclaimed by President Johnson, Who said: "Notwithstanng the fact that hundreds of thousands of volunteer leaders and members of rural <)rganizations actively participate in community, state, and national safety programs wenich have proved effective in reducing the number and rate of accidents among arm residents, acciden still cause thousands of deaths and nearly a milRon dis- ,bling injuries to farm people each year. This loss .of human and economic resources causes a significant adverse impact upon the econo- my of the entire flatten aad must be viewed as a matter of national concern." The acts and igures fully support the President's statement. The death toll from farm ac:idents runs at a rate of about 8,700 a year, along with some 800,000 injuries. The dollar cost is estimated at $15 billion. Fan people Who are laid up by accidents buy less machinery, consumer goods, farm supplies. Their income loss is a business Lass to the community .and the nation. And no Statistic, of course, can begin to measure the extent of the hma problems that all these needless deaths and injuries create. Dmg the week, all manner of media are used ir. the concerted effort to bring the message hame to farm people everywhere in the 50 states--and to business and other peo- ple as well. Factual kit materials lave been prepared jointly by the National Safety Coun- cil and the Department of Agriculture. hey include items for newspaper use, material for talks and articles, program ideas for religious leaders and women's groups, stickers and posters. The dangers hieh are thus covered are wide--highway safety, electricity, falls, machinery, and so on. Basically, the idea is to stre'ss that accidents don't just happen, they are caused--,and to stir people to act constructively on that fact. As an example, particular attention is given to stepping up safety efforts in the use of pesticides and tractors. As a spokesman for the Department of Agriculture puts it, "Both are basically safe tools. It is nn'safe users that make hem dangerous." Specifically, in our society we 'use over 250,000 different kinds of drugs and household products. Many of them .are potential killers if misctsed. But, if the proper, and usually simple, precauons are taken, they are perfectly safe. To say the obvious, special care must be taken in keep- ing such substances away from children4. A list of the causes of ftal a'ccidents on farms in a recent year (traffic and home ac- cidents not included) is revealing. Among them are machinery, drownings, firearms, falls, blows, animals, burns, lightning, and su, ffocatiom An accident .of some kind kills a farm resident every hour.

This means that the deferred fields or ranges can now have cattle turned in on them to be grazed. A deferred system of grazing is a necessery practice for good range management; to build up or maintain good range conditions, it is a must. Deferred grazing can be de- fined as postponing the graz- ing of a urtit, or to allow it to mature or go to seed periodic- The other is rotation deferred grazing, which allows different units of range to rest at least once every three years. Gen:- erally, no unit is grazed more than half of any growing sea- son or at the same time in successive years. In the Spokane area, the key plants are Idaho Fescue and Bluebunch Wheatgrass as bunchgrasses and Sandburg Bluegrass. In proper range range management, these key plants .are watched and used as guides to judge when to tart and when to stop at the .rid of the grazing season. In the ,spring, when the ground is firm and the new growth has reached the height of 6-8 inches, is a good time to begin grazing. Toward the end of the seas@n, the cattle should be taken off when about 4 inches of stubble remains for the winter. Ths works out to use a,bout 50 per cent of the c u r r e n t year's growth by weight. A good rule of thumb is "take half and leave halL" Proper distribution is need- ed to utilize the forage to the necessary degree. Undergraz- mg can be as detrimental as (rtergrazing, from the stand- point of a,nnual amount of for- age produced. Either cos e must be prevented to main- lain or improve the quantity and the quality of desivabie vegetation. Brush ,and weed control, range renovation, and rarge s e e d i n g on poor-canal%ion ra,nge sites, are other means ally. There are two meth, ods of producing good ground of vtiLizirg defermerA.
