And the sad point is that these statistics include teenagers and children. These might not sound like a lot when one con- siders there are people employed in agriculture. But it is. The increased use of power com- mercial weed killers and insecticides has exposed farmers to many hazards to personal health and safety. It has made the farm another industrial site. Whereas the industrial worker is subject to com- prehensive safety laws and co-ordinated accident prevention the farmer isn't. Officials in the Canada Safety Council believe this fact is one key reason the fatality and in- jury rates in rural Canada are markedly higher than the national average. The main farm im- as far as most people are is the tractor. Each year about 90 Canadians are kill- ed and 800 injured in ac- cidents involving the trac- tor. Safety officials predict tractor accidents could be cut down by 75 per cent if the machines were equipped with protective crush resistant cabs and seat belts were mandatory.

For all people who think research on the scientific level is only found in exotic places throughout this old bend an ear this way. Lethbridge is blessed with the federal Animal Disease Research Institute 'west of the city. This facili- ty is responsible for all including rabies inspection and for all of Western Canada. Five of the professional scientists at the institute are using 1974 to attend im- portant scientific meetings throughout the world to pass on new research infor- mation found in Lethbridge. As institute director Stuart Magwood research work isn't com- plete until it is com- municated to the rest of the world. And the scientist can either have his work published in a scientific journal or present it to a scientific meeting of his peers. The professionals in Lethbridge have chosen oral presentations to scien- tific peers in five instances this year. E. V. Langford presented a paper to the American Society of Microbiology in Chicago. He discussed the isolation of microplasms of reproductive tracts in bulls and cows. K. W. F. Jericho has just returned from the Cana- dian Veterinary Medical Association convention in Guelph. He discussed in- ducement of pneumonia in cattle through contact with Infectious Bovine Rhinotracheitis virus.
