HIRED HELP IS
TO BE WATCHED
State Fire Marshal Urges
I. W..W. Class.
"Be Careful Whom Ypu Hire" Is
the tlt of a bulletin issued by State
Fire Marshal Wells to the farmers or
the state relative to the gathering of
harvest crews for the coming glean
Ing season. Farmers are urged to
ask prospective hired men whether
they are American cltisens and ' if
they are Red Cross and liberty bond
"If he is a 100 ner cent American
he will tell yon all he knows' says
the bulletin. 'If he is an I. W. W.
or an alien enemy he will consider
it none of your business, in the lat
ter case do cot employ him or do
not let your neighbor have him. but
report him to the sheriff so that he
can keen watch while he is in your
commcnity. You do your part In this
direction and yon will be assisting
the home guards.
Farmers are warned not to permit
men to smoke around the harvesters
or in the grain fields. Many fires
are atributed to the careless handl
Inr of matches by smokers.
Persons who lire in small towns or
at sidings where warehouses for
storing grain are. located are advised
to procure a supplr of ladders for
use In the event of fires. Barrels and
buckets should be kent at hand with
! plenty of water. Without this equip
ment, the bulletin warns, any num
ber of persons will to fight fire would
be reduced to helplessness should
warehouse fires occur.
Harvey Wells Tells Wheat
Growers How to Pre-"
Co-operative organization between
farmers of any community and clti
sens of the nearest town is the most
effective precaution to take against
grain field fires, declares a. bulletin
to farmers that has been prepared
by State Fire Marshal Wells. Farm
ers are urged to equip themselves
with all the simple fire-fighting ap
paratus, such as buckets, barrels,
sacks, blankets.' etc.. while co-operation
with the nearest towns will
make the equipment at the fire sta
tion avalable for use. The bulletin
"The most effective means of sub
duing a grain field fire is throorh
co-operative organization between
the farmers and the citizens of the
n oar est towns. A good scheme is
to organize community fire cones
which could embrace an arrlctiltnral
area within a radius of ten miles in
all directions from the nearest town
or settlement. Once organized by a
mas meeting of citizens and farmers
the rest is easy.
Telephone le Urged.
"The first thing to be done Is to
assemble fire fighting equipment,
such as water tight barrets, buckets,
old sacks, blankets, quilts or cast-off
clothing, shovels and spades, at some
central and convenient location, pre
ferably at the fire station. Arrange
ments should be made with the tele
phone central station whereby. Im
mediately a call comes in from the
country, the operator notes the loca
tion of the fire and secures the name
of the person giving the alarm, im
mediately notifying some designated
person or persons in the city and im
parts the necessary information.
Such peison. so designated to receive
the alarm, causes the bell to be rung,
or whistle blown, and remains on
hand at the place or. assembly to di
rect the volunteer fire fighters who
respond. The barrels, baskets and
other equipment are loaded into the
first automobiles arriving at the
point of assembly and equipment and
fighters are hastened to the scene of
the fire by the most direct route.
Such an organization can be easily
and effectively consummated and
when once under way the details can
be arranged to suit the conditions
and topography of the country aur
roundlng a community and avoid con
fusion and ucpreparedneas. Several
tons and farming communities have
already organized along these lines.
Farmers Must Prepare.
"Every farmer should hare bar
rels, buckets, sacks, blanket, etc..
always on hand and convenient for
hauling to the scene of a fire on his
premises at a moment's notice. Most
Important of all. he should have a
plow always ready, with double-trees,
clevis and pin attached and adjust
