Only those panels with openings for windows or ventilators ■eed to be placed in exact locations. MANY NEW ERECTION AND STRUCTURAL FEATURES o S JO' ▼-B1P ELIMINATES FRAMING The simple, sturdy design permits LOK-RIB to keep production costs to « minimum by using moss-production methods. Port of this saving is put into superior quality materials, the rest is passed on to the buyer. And the many erection features make pos sible additional time and labor sav ings! As many of you know, it is often these two factors that run up your building expense. LOK-RIB cuts these costs! Erect it yourself or our ex perienced erection crews con do it for you. Exclusive V-Rip construction eliminates framing! View shows rib bolted to flat section of adjoining panel, forming a tri angular box girder of great strength. Panels serve as BOTH structural support and ex terior sheathing. NO ADDITIONAL STRUC TURAL SUPPORT NEEDED ON SIDE WALLS FOR GRAIN STORAGE! ONE BOLT SIZE . . . TWO LENGTHS The number of different parts 18-Gauge Ti-Co Galvanized Steel in LOK-RIB has been kept at a minimum to make erection as easy as possible. For in stance, only one size nut and bolt in two lengths is used throughout for joining panels together. No lost time looking for the "right" piece. In addition, all bolts have steel capped neoprene washers to assure weather tightness. FOR LONGER LIFE LOK-RIB is 100% galvanized steel for longer life with less maintenance. 18-gouge TI-CO Galvanized Steel, much heavier and stronger than of fered in most buildings, is used. TI-CO galvanizing clings tight, will not crack or flake. 14-INCH PANEL END LAP This gives addi 11 o n a 1 horizontal strength, extra weather protection. Corrugations nest together to prevent shearing action on the bolts. All bolt holes factory punched for precision fit.

Certainly present day farming operations have introduced new and different kinds of occupational hazards. Safety is something like an alkalizing agent that you take to re lieve an upset stomach—or to soothe that "morning after" feeling. You may not like it, but you know that you will feel better for it. To be safe in one's activities requires that one be a keen observer, possess a working knowledge of such activities, and, among other things, know how to meet emergencies when they occur. Yes, accidents do happen, with widely varying degrees of severity. Let's strive to reduce the frequency of occurrence. A Recent Incident It was brought to our attention a while back that a person was severely injured by anhydrous ammonia. The details surrounding the accident were not received. It apparently happened during the transfer of anhydrous am monia from a bulk tank to a supply tank on one of the applicator machines. There are a number of situations which could result in injury even during this normally safe operation. It is generally during routine activities, or a relaitvely simple procedure, when severe injuries result. Only those persons who are fully aware of the hazards involved in handling ammonia should handle it. They should be thoroughly schooled on proper techniques in handling the prod i there is still time to I BUILD OR REPAIR YOUR OWN GRAIN STORAGE ■ i IMMEDIATE DELIVERY ON ANY QUANTITY.

Actually there need be bo more danger about the use of anhydrous ammonia than there is in the use of gasoline, propane or butane. Gasoline is a highly inflammable and explosive material. Gasoline is widely used as a fuel for automobiles, tractors, en gines of all types, fuel for stoves, and in the past was commonly used as a fuel in gasoline lanterns. We learned how to use gasoline with safety, observ ing and practicing the necessary pre cautions required in its use. The same has been true with propane and butane. So it will be with anhydrous ammonia. Anhydrous ammonia differs in its physical properties from the fuels mentioned above. It is non-inflammable and is not considered a fire hazard, unless stored in a closed shed along with other machinery and equipment. If an ammonia leak should occur and 16 to 25 per cent of the air by volume is replaced by the ammonia gas, and there is no free movement of air, there is a danger of explosion from any source of open flame. For that reason the transfer of ammonia or checking equipment for leaks should be per formed out-of-doors as much as possible. Safety Precautions Observe these rules whenever you $re around anhydrous ammonia. 1. Ammonia is an irritating gas. Avoid breathing the fumes. Excessive breathing can burn or injure the tender membranes of the nose and throat.
