We associate a comfortable sense of security with our homes. When our children are out in the evening, we listen for the click of ,the latch, and the sound of the closing door, and are grateful when they return home ,safely. Yet--more persons are fatally ino jured in accidents occurring in the home and its surroundings, than in any other place, including the highways. The home offers sanctuary for the sick and weary. a place of contentanent and hap- piness for the family. If we would eliminiate common accident haz- ard.s, and common dangerous practices, we could really be safe at home. The 1,362 accidental deaths in the state last year were clasisfied as follows: home, 30; motor ve- hicle, 495; occupational, 187; pub- lic (other than motor vehicle), 150. If Kansvs women would do a few simple things to make their homes safer, hundreds of lives would be saved in the state every year. We know that "falls" are the chief cause of accidental deths in the home, and that if women would stop waxing their floors too highly, and stop using the small, appropriately named 'throw' rugs, many fatal and non- fatal falls would be prevented. Keeping floors and stairways clear of toys and other objects would help too. A common and very dangerous practice is startling or hurrying fires with kerosene or gasoline-- this tkes a number of lives by fatal "burns, every year. Children less than five years of age are frequent victims of ftal home accidents--drowning, fire, poison- ing, and falls--and so many of these deaths could be prevented +by the use of a roomy play pen for safeguarding the child while" he cannot have the close super- vision of an adult. Accidental poisonings could practically all be prevented if poisons for raedicinal or household use were kept in high, out of the way places. These suggestions are based on a study of accidental deaths, and observance of them would save many lives in Kansas. Is your home safe? o-o Vitamin A in Apricots Babies born with a silver spoon in their mouths are pretty apt to'' find cod liver oil in the spoon--so exacting are the demands for vita- min values these days. Most youngsters are given cod- liver oil or other vitamin A and D concentrates from the end of their second week until they are four or five years old. Babies have no corner on the vita- mins, however, for adults are turn- ing to them increasingly often. Sometimes we almost forget that vitamins can be found in foods as well as in tablets at the drug store. One of our most outstanding vita- min A foods is dried apricots. Their average vitamin A content is 7,579 international units per 100 grams. By grams is the way the dietitians and doctors figure it, but we house- wives are accustomed to buying food by pounds. Since there are 453.59 grams in a pound, we'll find 34,378 international units of vitamin A in a single pound of dried apricots as they come from the grocer's helves.

"Social Education and Action belongs at the heart of the total program of the church. If a churctt is not active it is lacking in social education," was the ,thought given us by Mrs. Coles. During the social hour the hostesses, Mrs. Oscar Taylor, Mrs. Nick Pepperd, Mrs. Jack Jacquiss, and Mrs. Todd, served punch and light and dark cake. o-o Boss (to office boy who had come m late): "Young man, you ought to take a lesson from the busy bee."
