JULY 29, 1976 S lrome :er Breathe in. Blow out! Blow- ing out a single breath of air into a mouth piece.., connect- ed to an instrument called a Spirometer can tell a lot about your breathing. The Spiro- meter can measure how well your lungs are doing their job. • . . and it can help detect the earliest signs of breathing dis- orders. Shortness of breath is one of the symptoms of lung disease. And the Lung Func- tion Test is especially useful with persons over 40, particu- larly smokers, who are most likely to be in the early sta- ges of chronic obstructive lung disease but who have no ob- vious symptoms yet. As a result of a special CHRISTMAS SEAL PROJECT.. Homecoming Planed The Children's Home Assem- bly of God Church will observe Homecoming on Sunday, Au- gust I, 1976.

Under the direction of Rick Lee, State Program Di- rector, the Lung Function Test- ing Program is reaching out into the far corners of Ala- bama. The test is simple, painless and takes very little time. In addition to a short medical questionnaire, the person test- ed is given two trials, or more, until a profile of their breathing is made. If their test result is borderline, below normal or severe, a copy of the report is sent to their pri- vate physician. In addition, the patient is also notified and S urged to contact ms or her prx- vale physician. According to Mr. Lee, "We want to find lung disease early when it is easier to treat. And Lung Function Test will do just that. We urge all Alabamians • . . over the age 18 . .. to take advantage of this free, life-saving Christmas Seal Service".

Ford. The theme of this year's observance sponsored by the National Sa- fety Council (NSC), and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) in "Educate for Safe- ty." This marks the 33rd consecutive observance of an annual safety event that began during World War II in an ef- fort to promote safety con- sciousness and reduce costly accidents that cut agricultural productivity. Accidents in 1975 claimed the lives of approximately 5,- 500 farm residents and caus- ed about 500,000 disabling in- juries, according to the Na- tional Safety Council. More than half of the deaths occur- red in motor vehicle accidents. About une-foarth of the deaths and 140,000 disabling injuries (22 percent), followed by ani- mals (13 percent), hand tools : percent), and power tools percent). "It is evident that we still have a long way to go in educating people how to use farm tools, machinery, and equipment safely," the NSC said. Farmers and ranchers are urged to train their workers-- both family and employed• Show them how to do each job safe- ly. Supervise them until they can manage the work with corn- petence and safety. Read sa- fety articles and items in pub- lications. Read and heed in- strnctton manuals and product labels. Education today can prevent accidents tomorrow.
