As I am writing this Fun Night is foremost in my mind with the selection of its King and Queen still in the future. When you read this Fun Night will be over and the King and Queen will be announced in a feature story in this paper or a later issue. - o - One activity is never finished before several others are in the planning stage. Wednesday, Feb. 28, Lola Robinson, Extension Home Economist from Clay county, will meet the clothing and home improvement project leaders at the Extension office from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. - o - Plans are also being made for the annual Boy's 4-H Basketball Tournament. First round games will be held March 8-9 at LuVerne, West Bend, Lakota and Swea City. - o- The Iowa State University Cooperative Extension Service has developed a work book called "Meals for My Family." It is designed to help teen-age girls in 4-H, girl scouting, home economics and the like who are interested in meal planning. Girls interested in it in 4-H receive copies of It as part of their club work. Others who might like to use it may obtain copies at the Extension office. - o - Winter campers — are you missing something? If so, check with the Extension office as we have some articles that were left on the bus. - o - Most teen-age drivers have good eyes and are quicker than older drivers. They should be better drivers, but instead have the highest accident rate of all age groups. I'd like to challenge the teen-age drivers of Kossuth county to give their natural abilities a chance and show us older drivers up. How about it? Can you reduce the traffic accidents involving young people in the 15-19 year-oldgroupin!968? By 25%, 50%? You can. if you try. MEMOS FROM MARGARET What kinds of programs would you like to see offered in Home Economics Extension next year? First, let me review some of the programs going on this year- there are what is popularly known as "Leader Training" where leaders from various homemaker clubs in Kossuth county come to a training school, "get the lesson," and take it back to their respective clubs as a program. Subjects included this past year were "Introduction to Famous Paintings", "Buymanship of Food" and a "Food Tasting" meeting to be held in April. Now, the question again-would you like to have more art and nutrition in leader training or do you have some other ideas? Short course-a series of three or more meetings on one subject for special interest groups is also a part of the program. This year such courses included Home Decoration, Development of the Pre- School Child, Clothing for Young Families, and followed later this year by Nutrition for Young Families. Would you like to see these continued or do you have suggestions for others? Then, there are the Newsletters— "Helps for Homemakers" for anyone requesting it, plus Young Homemaker letters—number one for brides and number two for mothers with young children. Have you been receiving one of these this year? If so, would you like to continue during the coming year? The Extension Home Economics Committee, Mrs. Gertrude Gutknecht, Lakota; Mrs. Howard Raney, Algona; Mrs. Elvin Swanson, Swea City; Mrs. Pat Bradley, Burt; Mrs. Wes Bartlett, Algona; Mrs. Hilbert Bierstedt, Whittemore, and Mrs. Erwin Eden, Titonka, are in the process of planning for the year beginning July, 1968 to July, 1969.

Co-ops do give us a hand-a hand in a lot of important work we could never do alone. "One of my local co-ops gives me the chance to buy quality supplies and equipment at a savings. Others give me the chance to sell my crops at a higher price. "One regional co-op helps me sell my livestock at a bigger profit. Other regional co-ops help me make more money by providing the 'big business' approach to farmer's problems of manufacturing and marketing that we must have to compete. "Don't drive by your co-op next time you're ready to buy or sell. If you do you'll be passing up the biggest chance you'll ever have to give yourself a helping hand."
