4-H Activity Family Affair With Higbies By JO COUGHENOUR S.H.A.F.F. 4-H Club Members of the Edwin Higbie family, Wellsville, have demonstrated that 4-H club work is for the entire family. The projects, activities and offices in which Mr. and Mrs. Higbie's children, Douglas, Karyl and Jay have participated during their years of work as members of the S.H.A.F.F. 4-H Club not only have made them more useful citizens, in their community but better family members, too. Mrs. Higbie also is active in 4-H work, having served as project leader. She now is serving as 4-H representative for Franklin Township. "Work in 4-H has given my children many worthwhile experiences," she said. "It has provided good basic education leading to adult independence." Doug became a member of S.H.A.F.F. in 1954 when he was 10 years old. His interests have been in many projects including turkeys, swine, crops, woodworking, electricity, safety and home beautification. One of Doug's current projects, and perhaps his most successful, is dairy farming. The 80 acres of land he is cultivating are di- vided between wheat, soybeans, corn and pasture. He has a herd of four Holstein cows and 15 feeder calves. Among the many awards he has won with his cows are the top blue ribbons received at the Mid- America Fair, Topeka, and the Kansas State Fair, Hutchinson, on one animal. Doug has served his club in several capacities, having been reporter, vice presidenTand president. He and Karyl are members of the S.H.A.F.F. square dance group. He is a representative of the county 4-H council and a junior leader. This year, Doug also is president of the Wellsville High School Future Farmers Of America Chapter. Jay, 11, also is interested in livestock. His special project is Ayrshire cattle. He owns one purebred heifer and plans to build his herd through the years. Jay's heifer was grand champion Ayrshire at the Franklin County Fair. He also owns a purebred Duroc sow which has earned the young owner more than $500 with two litters of pigs. Jay is recreation leader for the club this year. Karyl has specialized in dairy- I Eddie and John's [ "Clem put his hand in the horses mouth to see how many teeth it had, and the horse closed his mouth to see how many fingers Clem had." "And it's straight from the horses mouth that Sheldon's have the finest service facilities, including the latest diesel testing equipment, the best trained mechanics, and the most complete repair parts stock you can find in this area. Before you buy, and, especially, before you kid yourself that you're saving a few dollars buying farm equipment elsewhere, compare those facilities with our'a here at Sheldon's. We invite this comparison. . » . We're proud of pur service, and we know that you know that buying today's highly specialized farm equipment where Service is a word, instead of a fact, is like buying a television set when you don't have electricity ..." You'll know you SAVED AT . . . TRACTOR CO Where the MOP and Santa Fe meet in Ottawa THREE H'S (FOR HIGBIE) IN 4-H - Three children of Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Higbie, Wellsville, from left, Jay, Doug and Karyl, are members of S.H.A.F.F. 4-H Club, (Herald Photo) ing in a different way. While her brothers are concerned with producing milk, Karyl makes delicious dishes for her family utilizing dairy products. She has done many demonstrations showing how homemakers may use these ingredients in economical and nutritious meals. She has won blue ribbons for the past three years on dairy demonstrations given at county 4-H Club Day. Last year this 14-year old girl prepared 533 containers of frozen foods, 53 of cottage cheese. She has had all phases of clothing projects and, for two years, has taken care of a large vegetable garden. Karyl has held the offices of reporter and secretary for the club. The Edwin Higbies highly recommend 4-H club work as a means of enriching family life. It can provide interesting projects for everyone, along with social benefits and learning experiences which can make any boy or girl a better citizen. GOOD PROVIDER — Karyl keeps Higbies' freezer filled with foods containing dairy products. "New Frontier" Doesn't Appeal To Some Bankers ST.

They were asked how they would characterize the administration after almost a year of observation. The results: 39 per cent said there was "lots of room for improvement." Fifteen per cent said it has "not done as well as expected." Ten per cent said it is less effective than the previous administration. Thus a total of 64 per cent held generally unfavorable views. Another one per cent of those filling out the survy questionnaire made special comment also unfavorable. Of those holding favorable opinion, 17 per cent felt the administration is "doing a good job." Ten per cent felt it has "done better than expected" and eight per cent considered it better than the prior administration. But 71 per cent of the surveyed bankers indicated they are "conservatively optimistic" about the trend of the U. S. economy ovr the next year and expect it to be "good but not great." Eightper cent expressed "unbounded confidence," 19 per cent saw a "leveling off and two per cent expect "a sharp drop." The bankers aren't expecting a nuclear war.

Brown's Bylines THE OTTAWA HERALD Friday, November 10, 1961 A Dairy Progress Day At lola Nov. 14 By DON BROWN Dairy research information is presented each year at Dairy Progress Days. lola will have a session in addition to the one usually held at Manhattan. The dates for these meetings are lola, Nov. 14, at Riverside Park, and Manhattan, Nov. 16, in Umberger Hall. I plan to attend the session at lola and would be happy to have a car-load or two accompany me. These m e e tings will start around 9:30 a.m. and should ad- j o u r n around 3:30 p.m. Highlight of the 1- d a y meetings is expected to be a panel discussion on pesticides and resi- DOB Brown due problems. Farm Agent Dr. C. C. Roan, KSU entomologist, is to discuss materials that may be used and their effectiveness. Others on the panel are V. R. Layton, Topeka, state board of agriculture, and the county agricultural agents in this county. Members of the K-State dairy science department who will be on the program, and their subjects, are Dr. K. A. Huston, facts and fallacies of breeding; Dr. E. E. Hartley, replacements; Dr. G. M. Ward, size of business; Dr. T. J. Claydon, milking machine rubber care, and Dr. C. L. Norton, responsibility to the dairy industry. If you are a dairyman and interested in attending the Tola meeting on Nov. 14, please let me know so we can arrange transportation for our county group. Have you considered pregnancy testing of your cows? Veterinarians can pregnancy- test cows 30 to 60 days after breeding. Feed alone costs $10 to |12 a cow per month. Labor, interest and other costs can run expenses to J40 per cow with no return when your cows aren't with calf. Routine pregnancy checks will disclose cows that are safely with cal! and those that need treatment or culling for reproduction disorders. To insure future crops of walnuts, a planting program should be carried out at the same time nuts are being gathered this fall. Nut trees are easiest started by planting the nuts. Nuts can be "stomped" in the soil. Severel hundred trees can be planted in a short time by this method. Nut trees grow best on a deep, fertile, moist soil. Bottomlands that cannot be planted to other crops because of flooding are ideal for nut trees. Several persons have had ques- tions recently about strawberries and mulching. All strawberries require winter mulching in Kansas to avoid low temperature injury. Clean wehat straw is the best material to use. Break the bales in piles near the strawberry bed and sift out weed and wheat seed by shaking. Do this now and then apply an average of three inches depth during December, following a 7-10 day period of cold, cloudy weather during which the temperature drops to near freezing each day. Santa Would Go To Russia JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Businessman Robert I. Horne says he, has asked the State Department for clearance to fly to Moscow with 5,000 pounds of goodies to play Santa Claus to some Soviet children. He said he merely wants to show how American children celebrate Christmas. Soviet Trawlers Near Cape Cod CHATHAM, Mass. (AP) - A fleet of 32 Russian trawlers, with two mother ships, has been reported on a fishing bank only 21 miles off Cape Cod. Five Chatham fishermen reported the Russian fleet when they returned to port Wednesday night after a day at sea. The Russian trawlers have been seen for many months off the Cape, but this is the closest they have been to the mainland. The bank where the Chatham men reported seeing the Russians is less than 50 miles from Hyannis Port, where President Kennedj spent many summer weekends Boys Admit Vandalism HICKMAN MILLS, Mo. (AP)Three 12-year-old boys have ad mitted $500 to $600 worth of van dalism Sunday afternoon at the Harry S. Truman Elementary School on the south edge of Kansas City. No action has been taken against the boys, who were pupils at the Truman school last year and now attend a nearby junior high. Tom V. Forkner estimated the damage and said the boys were in the school an hour, wrecking mirrors, furniture, tile work anc roof ventilators. "They didn't have any reason,' Forkner said. "They just got to daring each other. Unless you're 12 years old, you don't understanc what a dare is."

Aucts: Ben Printy & Son; Clerk: Peoples Nat'l Bank .DOLLAR and SENSE' From Your Full-Service Bank DON'T NEGLECT PROTEIN IN HOG RATIONS. Regardless of the relative price between corn and protein supplement, it will never pay to skimp on protein — it may cost you more. Generally, one pound of protein fed in the proper proportion to hogs will save you 4. to 7 pounds of corn while producing comparable gains. Normally, a 50-pound hog requires 14% protein up to 125 pounds — 12% from there on out to market weight. SILAGE RATIONS WON'T ALWAYS PREVENT VITAMIN A DEFICIENCY in beef cattle, even though silage usually contains several times more carotene than normal daily requirements. There's suspicion that heavy nitrogen fertilization of silage crops may bo associated with the problem. The thought is that nitrate may hinder the conversion of carotene to vitamin A. Until more is known, it may be wise to include 13,000 to 15,000 units of vitamin A per head in all drylot rations USE CAUTION IN APPLYING FERTILIZER this fall. Except on sandy soils, phosphorus and potash can be applied just about any time. But nitrogen application should be limited to insoluble forms such as ammonia and urea on heavier type soils. Delay application until after the soil temperature drops to 40 degrees. At lower soil temperatures, soil bacteria .become relatively inactive and won't convert these fertilizers to more soluble forms. SIGN UP FOR THE WHEAT PROGRAM.
