The Sweater $12.98 The Skirt $12.98 Baby Sifter Suggestions Because Christmas is a time of much entertaining and visiting, ob- taining baby-sitting services be- comes a greater problem t h a n usual. Coupled with this is paren- tal worry over the fire-safety of children left behind in a baby- sitter's care. In most eases, parents realize the importance of fire safety---especi- ally at this time of year--and have taken the necessary precautions in the placement, care and decoration of the Christmas tree. Never-the-less, ' t h e National Board of Fire Underwriters con- cerned with your safety,, offers these helpful suggestions to par- ents who employ baby sitters: 1. Know the sitter; make inquir- ies about training and family back- ground. 2. Employ only sitters who have a sense of responsibility and who like children. 3. Try to have the same s~tter regularly if possible, and one who lives nearby. 4. Have a preliminary interview with sitter. Acquaint her with chil- dren and pets, especially the watch- dog. 5. Give instructions orally and leave them in writing. 6. Show sitter all exits and how to get children out of house in case of fire. 7. Give the sitter the telephone number of the fire department, family doctor, and place to which they (parents or adult members of the family) are going. Also, what neighbor to call in the event of any emergency. 8. If there is no phone: explain to sitter other means of notifying fire department in case of a fire. 9. Caution sitter against permit- ting child to play with matches, electric cords, or other electric ap- pliances. Also, tell her to keep the child out of the kitchen, if possible. 10. If sitter is to bathe young- ster, make" certain she has had such experience. 11. Leave a first aid kit with sitter and explain how to take care of simple burns, cuts, bruises. 12. Be sure sitter understands that in a fire emergency she should get the child out of the house, then call the fire department, then noti- fy parents. 13. Provide flashlights for use in case lighting should fail. 14. Always come home at the hour agreed, upon; telephone if de- From Co. Agent The Christmas season is near at hand and a word of caution on the handling of Christmas trees might save a life or a dangerous fire. First of all, select a tree that is fresh and hasn't been cut for any great length of time. A fresh tree will last longer and reduce the fire hazard. Next place this tree in a container that holds water. T h i s will keep the tree from drying out so rapidly in the warm house and danger is reduced. Check all lights and electrical cords you plan for the tree and don't use any frayed cords or those which have kinks that might cause short circuits. The Christmas season should be a happy one so take precautions that will continue the merry time.

Lights and Milk ,Production A recent study at Colorado State University has shown that there is no advantage as far as production was concerned by leaving lights on all night for the dairy cows. About the only difference was that they were ready to come into the parlor earlier in the morning. There was no difference in either milk produc- tion or feed consumption w h e n lights were left on for the cows.
