£••**•*•*-**••*••*•••,;( I DEVELOPMENTS : FROM DEVALOIS •, •••••••••••••••••••* BY GALEN DeVALOlS Kossuth Extension Director The Farm Power and Machine School which we just completed was considered very successful. One hundred and fifty farmers registered and attended this school which was sponsored by the Kossuth County Extension service. Dale Hull, Ext. Agricultural Engineer from I.S.U. said this was the largest attendance in the state at a Farm Power and Machine School. The information taught on machinery and economics should be very helpful to farmers. Here are some good meetings coming up*. CATTLE FEEDERS-A cattle feeders school will be held at Spencer, January 3 and 4, 1968. This school will be taught by LS.U. specialists and some excellent speakers from other states. A $10 registration fee includes 3 meals at Stub's. INTERESTED IN CORPORATIONS? A Farm Corporation Workshop for farmers will be held at the Extension Office in Algona, Tuesday, January 9, 1968. Neil E. Harl from Iowa State University, who is both a lawyer and an economist will be the speaker. Many farmers have questions on this and here is an excellent place to get some good information. Dr. Harl is an excellent speaker. This is an area meeting and we are fortunate to have it held in Kossuth County. Registration fee is $2 and this will include the noon meal.

Upper Des Moines—5 VlHlllllllllllllllllllllilllllllililliilliiiiiilllliitfi | RAMBLINGS | 1 FROM RUTH 1 ffhiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii By RUTH PATTERSON Extension Assistant I'm very happy to be working with the Extension Service in the 4-H and youth program. I want to use this column as a source of information about matters of interest to all young people as well as a means of keeping in touch on a weekly basis with 4-H members and their leaders about their various activities. A day or two ago Galen handed me a letter from the Production Credit Association's Scholarship Committee. It seems that any high school senior (not just 4-H or FFA members) who are planning on enrolling in the College of Agriculture at I.S.U. in Ames in the fall of 1968 can apply for one of the two $500 scholarships that P.C.A. is offering in Iowa. If you're interested you have until March 1, 1968 to send your application to I.S.U., but certain things must be done before then. The application must be accompanied by a 300-500 word essay on the subject "The Production Credit System." Information concerning this maybe obtained from the P.C.A. office here in Algona. The recipients will be selected on the basis of scholarship, financial need and evidence of leadership ability and character. For answers to questions and application forms contact Louis M. Thompson, Ass. Dean, College of Agriculture, I.S.U., Ames, Iowa 50010. Another item that will probably be of most interest to girls is the Iowa Youthpower Project. This involves a project or report in one of two general areas, "Food & Nutrition" or "Food Careers." The prize is an all- expense paid trip to the National Youthpower Congress in Chicago sponsored by the Farm Bureau and others in all phases of the food industry. The projects are due no later than Feb. 15, 1968. If interested contact Iowa Youthpower Project, 507 10th St., Farm Bureau Building, Des Moines, Iowa 50309 for more information.
