Answer-We are recommending that a Brix 10, Diazinon or Thimet be applied at planting time on corn following corn. We also recommend a check be made about the third week in June and more may have to be applied with a cultivator. However, we don't expect the 10-12 inches of rain in June acaln and planter treatments have also been much more successful than cultivator application. You will note parathion and the combinations are not recommended at planting time. This is because they just do not last or hold long enough to be successful. - o - Rally Night? What's that? A night of nights for eight outstanding 4-H'ers. They will be picked by their fellow 4-H'ers Thursday night, December 28 to head the county 4-H program during 1968. Eight hundred boys and girls meeting in the Algona High School auditorium will select four boys and four girls from a slate of sixteen candidates. Their 4-H careers have led them past the usual projects and activities toward a goal of county-wide leadership. The master of ceremonies for the campaigning and election will be Steve Detrick. The business meeting and installation of officers will be conducted by the current county officers. Adults helping with the activities are — Mrs. Henry Looft, Fenton, will be in charge of an information desk; Mrs. Looft and Mrs. Orville Thoreson, Swea City, will be in charge of the election of officers; Ted Smith, Algona, is in charge of the ushers; Dick Kuecker and Fred Asa, Algona, the campaigning; Mrs. Joe Loebach, Burt, will supervise the installation service; and Laurel Peterson, Swea City, will be in charge of passing out apples furnished by Roger Linde of the Linde Implement in Swea City. WESLEY By Mrs. Viola Studer There are two things that are of top importance right now concerning 4-H. The first is Rally Night. As I -A rite this, Rally- Night is less than a week away. Most of the preliminary work is done. We have jobs assigned and hope that all will go well. The big question is, "Who will be the new county officers?" I sure don't know the answer, but I can be sure of one thing. They are going to be real top notch young people, one's who have a real interest in 4-H rf- fairs. If they didn't they wouldn't have been in 4-H long enough to qualify, or have had an outstanding enough record to rate consideration, or have been interested enough to campaign for office the way they do. The offices they are elected to are not just honorary and I'm sure they realize it. During the time that they are in office these young people will be called upon frequently to serve as leaders and they'll do a good job. So I'm looking forward to working with them whoever they are. Those who are not elected will find other opportunities for leadership in 4-H and their many other activities. There's always another year and another opportunity for young people like these. The other matter is the weighing in of calves for the 4-H beef projects. All the boy's clubs have made arrangements to weigh their calves and to tattoo them for identification before January 6- the deadline for entering their calves in a beef project. 4-H projects are intended to teach the 4-H'er to plan ahead and to make the necessary decisions. The beef weigh-in is a good example of tliis as any 4-H'er who may want to show a steer at the fair in August must have already made the decision to have a beef project and have started work toward that goal. I want to mention another scholarship that I've heard about. Every year the Federal Land Bank Associations in Iowa gives two $500 scholarships to farm boys who continue their education at Iowa State University. Ask E. H. Hutchins, the manager of the Federal Land Bank Associatina in Algona for more details.
