(1961) In action under this section for damages for injury to plaintiff's hand caught in wood elevator while working at defendant's charcoal manufacturing plant, plaintiff failed to make a submissible case by showing it was possible to safeguard the dangerous condition, and since plaintiff was aware of the danger, failure to warn was immaterial.
