Are you interested in public speaking? In the preservation of our natural resources? If so, you should be interested in the Soil Conservation Speech Contest to be held in July. I know July seems a long ways off - but time does go fast and you will need to do some research and preparation. The topic for 1968 is "Soil, Our Important- Legacy." Get in touch with me for more information. * * * Feb. 3 the 4-H county officers will be attending a workshop at Spencer for all 4-H county officers in the ten-county northwest area.

Why not have them join now? They can get information from rne at the county extension office. MEMOS FROM MARGARET 1 4-H members always "carry a project" and the majority of 4-H girls in Kossuth have Food & Nutrition as a project for the 1968 club year. Here are some of the suggestions 4-H nutrition leaders have t been receiving in a series of three ' training schools. Emphasis on good nutrition - knowing and eating an approved diet for optimum health is what each leader hopes to accomplish with the girls in her club. Of course, learning what to eat comes first, followed by finding ways to persuade each girl to want to eat a well-balanced diet. Talks and demonstrations showing not only the food value, but the preparation of food are given by 4-H girls in their local club meetings. For example, the study of breakfasts eaten in different parts of the world and the preparation of foods to "pep up" our .own breakfasts by learning to make muffins or other breakfast breads. Learning to prepare new foods will lead to exhibits the girls will be practicing on and later showing at local achievement shows and fairs. These will include baked foods and posters and exhibits showing nutrition and its place in the diet. The third and last training school for leaders was held on Wednesday, Jan. 24. A demonstration on making yeast bread, a planned meal at noon, plus a discussion of possible exhibits and their evaluation was a part of the program. - o - Home Economics extension programs are always planned around the family and individual family members, especially the homemakers. Families are consumers of goods and services and emphasis on selection and buymanship has been the basis for many program offerings. All of us are aware that the consumer has become very important and is receiving help not only through educational programs and business, but also through laws passed by Congress. The best example of this is the Truth in Packaging Law that went into effect last July first. There is a set of slides "Truth in Packaging" available through the Kossuth Extension on this subject. The last session of Congress passed more consumer bills. Here is a tally of key consumer legislation- these bills have become law— Meat inspection — to extend meat inspection within state lines, as well as across state lines. Flammable Fabrics-to permit stiffer standards on flam inability of textile fabrics. Air Pollution Control - to give government power to halt industrial production and traffic in case of health emergencies. Hazardous Products- to study hazardous household products not under regulation now. These bills have passed one house and are waiting action now. It is expected they will be acted on during the present session- Truth in Lending - to require leaders to disclose annual rates for finance charges. The voice of the consumer is important.
