The mailing included three pieces, a leaflet describing the extension activities in the ten- county area. You may find a meeting in another county that fits your specialized interest and these are listed in the leaflet. For example, in Kossuth we do not have a Beef cow-calf school this year, but there is one in Dickinson County and some might want to attend. It shows the many educational activities being held in Northwest Iowa. The second leaflet describes the schools and meetings spdh- sored by the Kossuth County Extension Service this winter. These range from discussing corporations to corn. Save these sheets and mark the date on your calendar of meetings you'd like to attend. The third piece is a card to return with a place to check the meetings you are interested in or information you would like to receive. We will use these names for mailing list for any specific meeting or information we have to send out. Return the card and save the two leaflets for further reference. Let us know if you have any questions or if we can be of help at any time. 4-H leaders, do you want to make your club meetings more interesting and effective? Then come to the meeting at the Extension Meeting Room, 1306 N. Main, Thursday, Jan. 11, 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. We'll be sharing ideas and suggestions that other leaders have found helpful. Record keeping will be discussed and a schedule of events for the coming year outlined. Bring your leader's books and any questions or ideas that you have and come to the meeting Jan. 11. WHEN-?—If you read the Algona Upper Des Molnes, YOU KNOWI "This year I did a lot of helping with the younger girls and can still remember when I was the one that was getting the help. I owe a lot to 4-H and I hope that I have helped other people enjoy and learn from it, too." Jane Walker, new girl's vice-president for the Kossuth County 4-H Clubs made this statement in the story she wrote for her 4-H record book. Jane, who is 17 and has been a member of the Plum Creek Elite Club for seven years, has held nearly every office in her club. Jane has actively participated in the three major girl's 4-H areas of emphasis. But her special interest has been in the area of food and nutrition. I could go on and list her many achievements in 4-H, school and church — music shows up as a real AUCTION For health reasons I have rented my land and will sell my personal property on my farm located from West Bend iy z mile south on 44 then y 4 mile east on south side of road, or from Ottosen 3 miles west and 4 miles north then east l / 4 mile, on Thurs.

Auctioneer!; Charley Quinn and Jay Arnold Owner Clerk: Iowa State Bank ofWeat Bend, Iowa important part of her life in all three - but I'd like to quote her again instead for I hope that perhaps this will influence some 4-H'er who is undecided as to whether or not to continue in 4-H. Jane has this to say about how she felt after her first year in 4-H (1961). "I found it awfully confusing and was about ready to give up but I decided to stay in another year." 1964 showed a change in her feeling about 4-H. "By this year I was participating more in outside 4-H activities and was I ever glad I stayed in 4-H." Now in 1968 Jane has achieved the goal of a county officer. 4-H has meant much to her and could mean a lot to you — if you give it a chance. Leonard Becker is the boy's vice-president. He's also 17and has been in the Wesley Boy'sClub for seven years. Like the other officers he has had a try at several club offices and has been active in 4-H projects. As you look at his activities in 4-H you see that he, too, has gone beyond the routine projects and activities in his own local club. Leonard has been a delegate to state conference and has attended state health camp and leadership camp. He's given talks to other groups and on radio about 4-Hand received a merit award - one of 4-H's top awards. Like other county officers he has taken part in Youth Leader activities. These are countywide meetings where the older 4-H'er becomes acquainted with the other enthusiastic 4-H'ers around the county. They find that it is these extras that are the frosting on the cake - that makes it worth staying in 4-H. MEMOS FROM MARGARET BY MARGARET PRATT Kossuth Extension Home Economist HOW MUCH DO YOU SPEND FOR GROCERIES? This question was asked of nutritionists in the U. S. Department of Agriculture. Their answer after looking at statistics and surveys was: For a family of four-$35.00 a week. For a retired couple - $20.00 a week. In order to find out if this was a reasonable answer four home economists were asked to feed a family of four and a retired couple for a week a nutritionally sound diet allowing for family preferences. The results of the survey done on the east coast are already available. Here is what they found A family of four in the state of Virginia spent $30.98, while a similar family in Pennsylvania spent $35.01. Retired couples from the same region spent $19.62 and $19.96 respectively. The report showed that meals were carefully planned and the shoppers used care in shopping, but neither scrimped nor splurged. Non-food items like p<ip».-i' products and soap were not included, canned and frozen food stored at home was given the market price. They assumed that some staples on the shelf at home would be used, but that they also had to include some in the week's shopping. Wouldn't it be interesting to have four families in our own area do a similar study? Then we could compare prices with whac is paid on the East and West coasts of the United States. We could do this - all we need are some volunteers — two young families in the 30 age group who have two children and two families age 60 and over who do not have children still living at home. To my knowledge no study of this type has been done in the mid- west. Let me know if you would like to volunteer your family. If you prefer not to have your names used that could be arranged, too. Cresco Chums The Cresco Chums 4-H Club held their December meeting at the county Extension office. The club Christmas party was also held at this time. The re was a gift exchange. The families of the members were guests. Sue Smith was selected as a candidate for county office. Debbie Laws was guest speaker. She told of her summer in Europe and showed slides of her trip and places she visited. A pot-luck lunch was enjoyed by all.
