In effect since January 1,1988,
a ruling by U.S. Department of
Labor forbids youths under 18
to drive tractors of more than
20 horsepower. The ruling does
not apply to youths working on
their famil i e s' farms and
youths of 14 and 15 may qualify
for exemptions from the ruling
by completing approved train
ing courses.
In New York, for example, E.
W. Foss, professor of agricul
tural engineering at Corpell,
and Dr. Harold Noakes of the
state's Department of Educa
tion are setting up training
courses and are planning to co
operate with 4-H and FFA
groups to encourage participa
tion by rural boys and girls who
desire to work on farms during
school vacations.
The American Cancer Society
estimates that about 915,000
Americans will be under medi
cal care for cancer this year.
