Two State Dairy Winners In Far And Near 4-H Club By JOYCE STAROSTA Far And Near 4-H Club The Far and Near 4-H Club is proud to have two of its members chosen as state champions in dairy production. Jean Reichard and James Sowers received this honor and won trips to Chicago. Because James isn't yet 15, he will be unable to go. In the state 4-H dairy production contest, daily milk weights are recorded. Once-a-month butter fat tests are made, and results of production, plus feed records, are filed on proper forms and sent to extension dairyman. At the close of contest year, a summary of records are sent to ihe extension dairyman to be judged. Jean has been enrolled in dairy for seven years. Her first calf was a registered Guernsey bought at a farm sale. Two of her cows were on the dairy production honor roll this year. Jean has shown Guernseys at the fair five years. She has been on the state dairy judging team and has received county awards in dairy two years. Jean has given two demonstrations and a talk on dairy foods in county competition. She has tried to pass on all she has learned in dairy to the younger members. Jean has been in 4-H eight years. She has served as council representative two years and vice president one year. This year she received seven county awards in canning, beautification of home grounds, clothing, dairy, garden, home economics and a guard for her silver achievement pin. She is an active member in all 4-H events. James has been working with his Jersey projects five years. At the age of 8 he received his first calf from his older brother. He took her to the Jersey Parish Show and several fairs and received numerous prizes. He has received several prizes on that calf. James has entered the 4-H fitting and showing contest four years. He has placed second in the county dairy judging contest and first in the fitting and showing contest. He was nominated by the 4-H County Club Agent for junior membership in the American Jersey cattle club. For two years he has received county awards in dairy. James has given a talk in county competition on dairy and has given many talks at club meetings on his dairy project. He has been enrolled for three years in dairy production. This year he had two cows in production. He pays his Dad for all feed costs. The balance of his milk check he uses for his school expenses and spending money. James has worked in 4-H five years. He has been junior president, junior reporter, recreation leader, and this year he is council representative. He, like Jean, is active in all 4-H activities. James has increased his dairy project to five registered females and plans to have one or two cows each year for sale, the money to be used for a college education.

Hanson Unit of moisture in American Legion Auxiliary termining t brought gifts for the gift shop at the V. A. Hospital at Wadsworth at its meeting Monday evening, Nov. 13. The doll which Auxiliary members are going to dress as a Christ mas project was displayed.

Ten members were present. All went to the A & D Dairy Bar for coffee after the meeting. Mr. and Mrs. A. V. McAuley and family returned Thursday from attending funeral services for her grandfather, John C. Campbell. Mr. Campbell had made his home with his son, Ivy Campbell, Versailles, Mo., and was bedfast the past year. He would have been 86 Nov. 16. Funeral services were in Stephens Chapel at Russellville, Mo., at 2 p.m. Thursday. Burial was at 01- ean. Dinner guests of Mrs. Martha Steen, Emporia, recently were Mrs. Dave Sturm, Mrs. Clarence Moldenhauer, Mrs. Darrell Kerr, Mrs. Pearl Lingle and Mrs. AT- mina Kennedy, Kansas City, Kas. The hostess, Mrs. Steen, is a sister of Mrs. Sturm and is Mrs. By DON BROWN Results of the grain sorghum variety demonstration on the Dale Dieterich farm at Princeton have been secured. The yields were obtained by catching the grain from the combine auger as it passed stakes used as guides, three rows with total length of 200 feet. This made a sample area of 1-70 of an acre. I feel that this method of yield check is practical in view of the fact that heads that cannot be picked up by the combine are of no value to consider as yield. Moisture tests were taken on all samples and converted to 15.5 per cent verting a part of their acreage from th production of what or from the production of wheat or barley, as the case may be, and devoting that acreage to an approved conservation use, and they will also qualify for price support on their 1962 crop. The 1962 wheat support is at a minimum national average of $2 a bushel. While the 1962 barley price support has not yet been announced, it will be at a level not less than for 1961. The national average support price for 1961- crop barley was 93 cents per bushel. HDU News TEQUA — Help for shoppers' is here in the form of correct care information permanently attached to garments and fabric household items. It is done with pictures showing at a glance whether the item should be washed by hand or machine or dry cleaned, also how it is to be ironed or pressed. Developed by the National Retail Merchants Association and recently endorsed by the National Better Business Bureau, Inc., these sure care symbols have been adopted by several progressive manufacturers of fabric goods. Fiber content labels required by federal law will continue to appear on all fabric goods. The new symbols merely supplement that information and make it unnecessary to keep so many instruction tags on file in the laundry.

THE TON WASHINGTON (AP) - An Indiana girl lost her appendix while on a trip above the Arctic Circle. An Illinois lad found the young people in Sweden "are just as proper as you'll find anywhere." It all happened during what the National 4-H Club Foundation termed a highly successful International Farm Youth Exchange. Suzanne Weibel of Kirkland, Ind., and a senior at Indiana University, spent six months in Finland and stayed with six farm families. On a trip to Lapland, she was taken ill while in a restaurant. The appendix was removed in a hospital in the town of Sodankyla, nearly 100 miles north of the Arctic Circle. Walter Griffith, Galesburg, EL, said he went to Sweden quite curious about the attitudes and social lives of Swedish girls. "If you've heard that morals are a little more easy-going over there, it's just tourist propaganda," Griffith reported. The 48 are in Washington for an evaluation session of their experiences. Members of the group, with the nations they visited, included: Darlene Dewey, Delphos, Kan.— Switzerland. Hal Judy, Hutchinson, Kan. — Luxembourg. Marcia Rygaard, Effingham, Kan.—Germany. Nancy Ewing, Nevada, Mo. — England, Wales. Marjorie Faeth, St. Charles, Mo. — Ireland, North Ireland. Anna Karrasch, St. Joseph, Mo. — Netherlands. Byron Rosbrugh, Appleton City, Mo.—Switzerland.

The Plainsman is the only open - pollinated variety, and the others are hybrid. KS 630 is the only white variety in the group. KS 701 did not stand well and was too tall to be considered as a good selection. RS 650 and Frontier 410 both 1 developed by crossing Combine Kafir 60 and Plainsman, were the shortest of all varieties and heads were of even height. RS 650 did not have a very thick stand which might account for the difference of yield. I do not have the percentage of all of the hybrids in the plot, but here are some of them: RS 610-Combine Kafir x 7078, KS 630 — Combine Kafir 60 x Combine White Fiterita. The plot was planted on June 12 and harvested on Nov. 10. I would like to express my thanks to Dale for his cooperation in conducting this demonstration. Thanks go also to Jack Sawin for his part in harvesting operations. Less than a month remains in which growers may file applications to take part in the 1962 winter wheat stabilization and the 1962 feed grain program for winter barley. The deadline is December 1.
