BY MARGARET PRATT Kossuth Extension Home Economist The opportunities that rural America offers for living, working and relaxation are told in the 1967 Yearbook of Agriculture "Outdoors U.S.A." It has just been published by the U. S. Dept. of Agriculture. It is designed for all Americans- citizens interested in conservation of natural resources, hunters and fisherman, family campers, children wanting to learn about the great outdoors and farmers interested in recreation enterprises. "Outdoors U.S.A." is destined to become as popular as the 1965 yearbook "Consumers AH" which is on bookshelves in many homes. Send for your copy today.
