A Dream Comes True For Sandra SANDRA HERRING A dream is coming true for blond, blue-eyed Sandra Herring, of Williamsburg. Since the early 1950s Sandra dreamed of a college education financed by sale of beef cattle. Today, 18-year-old Sandra is a Kansas State University freshman. Her sale of beef has totaled $5,409 in the past nine years, and she was named a state award winner in 4-H beef. Her compensation will be a trip to the National 4-H Club Congress in Chicago. Also named a state 4-H winner, in public speaking, was 18-year- old James Dunn, son of Mr. and Mrs. L. E. Dunn, RFD 2, who will receive a watch. He also is a freshman at K-State. Sandra's first sale was a top quality Hereford steer named Dummy which brought her $23. With this and helpfrom her father, Roy Herring, she purchased Old Lady, a Hereford Heifer, which has produced seven calves including two champion heifers, one in 1954, the other in 1961, and a champion steer in 1959. Missing only one Franklin County Fair since 1953, she has exhibited 13 animals and placed three grand champions in County competition, as well as one grand champion and one champion in state judging. In addition, she has participated in 17 livestock judging contests, 13 fitting and showing contests, was a member of county livestock judging teams at the Mid-America Fair, Topeka, in 1957, 1959 and 1960 and at the State Fair, Hutchinson, in 1957 and 1959. She also held the title of county beef champion for five years. James has been a consistent contender in the promotion and demonstration talks since 1957, as well as in best groomed boy contests. His numerous cooking and baking awards include the Fleshman yeast award for white bread and the foods and pennant award, both in 1960. He also showed the grand champion market pig and the poultry grand champion at the Franklin County Fairs in 1956 and 1957, respectively. Although Sandra cherishes the many trophies and ribbons she has won in 4-H competition since 1952, she feels that even more satisfaction has come from owning her own animals and from the friends she has made as a result of them. James has been in 4-H since 1954. 4-H Notes Home Demonstration News LANE — Met at the church annex with twelve members and two visitors Harkins present, and Mrs. Mrs. Dennis Wesley Oyer appointed, one to prepare the unit's exhibit and the other to plan table ment were welcomed as new members.

Both were selected as state award winners. James received his award in public speaking, and Sandra, in beef. These'; awards mean they have completed the best project in the state for this award. There are 31,303 4-H members in 105 counties in the state. A state award is what every 4-H member dreams of during their years as a 4-H member. It takes much work to NELSON complete a project and to carry other projects in addition to those which receive a state award. James will receive a watch in recognition for his public speaking, and his record book is now competing with other state winners for a trip to National 4-H Club Congress at Chicago and a $400 scholarship. Sandra will attend National 4-H Club Congress Nov. 25-Dec. 2. Her record book is competing for national winner in beef and one of six $400 scholarships to be awarded. Sandra and James are freshmen at Kansas State University, Manhattan. They feel that 4-H has broadened their knowledge and is making college easier for them. The many friends they met during 4-H events and activities makes college easier and more enjoyable. Brown's Bylines See Ample Supply Of Protein Feed By DON BROWN There should be enough protein feed to go around without a big price squeeze being put on livestock feeders this year. Those who look only at the available supply might get the idea that prices should be lower. To look at only the supply side would be misleading. Available high protein feeds per animal unit has more than doubled the past 20 years There appears to be still another record production this year. However, use of protein supplement has i n c r eased rapidly. More and more manufactured feed is being used and many kinds have a protein base. Soybeans have greatly increased the protein supply. From a crop of 30 million bushels in 1936 to an expected crop of about 720 million bushels in 1961 is why the soybean has been called America's wonder crop. Prices of protein supplement, particularly soybean meal, are expected to decline into the win- Don Brown Farm Agent ter months. The cotton crop is forecast at about equal to that FINISHED PRODUCT — Result of an idea and work by Princeton Jolly Workers 4-H Club was this first-place booth at Franklin County Fair.

Mrs. Florence Langford presented the project lesson on the papers in your life. The next meeting has been changed to meet with Mrs. this question, the boys and girls, especially the younger ones, look around to their parents and leaders. Finally, after several nods or shakes of the head and an indication that it's "up to you kids," a motion to have a booth is made. After much discussion, the motion is passed. The president then appoints a committee and an adult adviser to take the main responsibility of going ahead. The committee then asks anyone with a good idea to confer with its members. The ideas are studied from the standpoint of: "Which field shall we pick, health, safety conservation. . . ? The committee decides and starts gathering equipment. By August, the committee reports back to the club with its idea or with a scaled model of the booth. Gathering the equipment runs into many complications, work and sacrifices. It's fair time at last, time to bring the booth to life. Everyone's ideas and efforts are put together to produce the finished duct, a winning booth, hope." Of course, we realize all cannot be winners, and we can only hope the judge will put a blue ribbon on our booth. If it is a winner, you have the privilege of taking it to the Mid- America Fair in Topeka, as we did this year. Again you see the booth come to life, but this is the end of the road.

In announcing the new policy oes not mean a reduction in Top Cattle Bring $29.75 KANSAS CITY (AP) — The grand champion carload of commercial stocker and feeder cattle, shown at the American Royal by Theis Cattle Co. of Dodge City, Kan., was sold at auction for $29.75 a hundredweight to the Schultz Cattle Co. Thursday. The 40 head of 542-pound calves won the Hereford breed championship. The Wagstaff Cattle Co. of Louisburg, Kan., won the Angus breed championship with its car- lot. In the commercial meat-type hog show, Walker Brothers of Clarence, Mo., had the grand champion pen of 10 hogs weighing 221 to 240 pounds. Arthur Jensen of Olathe, Kan., had the best hogs weighing 200 to pounds. of a year ago. Even if flax pro- that last short- no duction is third less year, there should be age of supplements. It is difficult to predict protein supplement prices. Present indications are that there is no need for a farmer to be in a hurry to contract for his supply. One must remember that the picture can change rapidly. Keep your eye on the market and get set to contract for a substantial part of your requirements on any good break in price. With this year's first feed grain program grain sorghum crop being harvested, Kansas State University agricultural economists look for a gradual price increase through the first half of 1962. Hugh J. McDonald and Leonard W. Schruben think the low will be around $1.70 per hundredweight at Kansas City late this month or early in November. Increasing the support price of grain sorghum to $1.93 has done away with the disparity between corn and grain sorghum support prices. This in turn has corrected the market price of grain sorghum in relation to corn at the terminal markets. The K-State economists added that following the announcement of the new support rate, grain sorghum prices started to adjust to it. Their opinion is that western Kansas producers would be well to store their grain sorghum crop and buy the grain needed to feed their livestock, if possible. Their recommendation to the cash producer is to put the grain under loan. Milo in some local conditions may still be a better buy than corn. McDonald and Schruben said the seasonal price decline this fall is expected to be less than usual due to the higher support rate and a smaller crop than last year. Any low prices that occur at harvest time are expected to be short lived. Nationally, the 1961 crop is estimated at 480 million bushels, a 25 per cent decrease from last year. Kansas production is estimated at 110 million bushels, a 33 per cent reduction over last year's 163 million bushel crop. HUTU* SEASON INCRUSIS fIRE HAZARDS! Army requirements for medical officers.
