In almost every instance, the completed project benefited the entire family and in many'caseSj the community as well. The information comes from the Cooperative Extension Service which directs 4-H Club work. Further, proof of the far- reaching effect of 4-H was found In 1,900 record books maintained by state award-winning club members. The records were jre- viewed in the headquarters: of the National 4-H Service Committee last November, said N,or- man C.

Another national champion, who won a Sears-Roebuck Foun dation scholarship for leadership, is 20-year-old Hoosier 'armer Wayne Buck. He has a 4-H record so long "it would fill book." Now a student at urdue University, Buck credits 4-H training with teaching him how to accept responsibility, and to better understand the world and the people in it. President Kennedy expressed similar feeling when he said n a recent message to 4-H members: "I would commend you especially for your constructive nd worthwhile efforts in learn- ng to live and work cooperatively with others." In the beginning, 4-H Clubs were intended for farm youngsters, and offered only projects n crops, livestock, home canning and cooking. The present program embraces a wide range of agricultural, home economics and scientific programs. With :he exception of a few such as ivestock, tractor and field crops, ;he projects can be carried on in town as well as on the farm 4-H Moves to Town Today, membership in 4-E Clubs is about equally divided between farm and non-farm boy and girls; The main reason fo this shift is the disappearanc of the .small farm from th American' ^agricultural scene. ^""Meanwhile, more and mor business people are particlpa ing in 4-H as it moves int suburban and urban areas, Min drum points out.

Director Mindrum, who is a ormer 4-H member and state xtension official, has this to ay: "To sum up 4-H achievement one; should call special ttention to the concurrent ef- orts of many which, over the ears, have made the 'learn by oing' program the success it is, Business Gives Cash Besides the paid and volun- eer workers who carry out the eaching-training aspect, there re business people who con- ribute know-how and money," e added.

NOW THAT JOHN GLENN HAS so vividly demonstrated that it is possible to orbit the earth, it may not be too long before inter-planetary travel is here. Soon there will be a rocket for every pocket and there'll be guided tours of the universe with selected stops at Venus, Jupiter and Mars. For newlyweds the word "honeymoon" will be taken literally for they'll be able to-go to the moon for their wedding trip. Couples from other planets may come here on their honeyearth ! * * * GEORGE AND MABEL ASTRONOID of Saturn would land their rocket! on the space strip at the Algona airport. They've just been married and they are shooting their entire savings of 200 zulairians (about $3,142) on an out-of-that-Saturn trip for their honeyearth. George gets cut of the spaceship and wipes the "Watch Saturn Grow" signs from the trunk. His prankster friends put them there after the wedding and this is the first chance George has to clean them off. *. * * "GEE, GEORGE". MABEL whipers as he carries her over the threshold to their room at the rocotel, "Do you love me as much as you did the day we found out the notches in our IBM cands matched ?" George and Mabel belong to the upper -Alpha class on Saturn, and thus are among the few selected by the Master Machine to marry and rear children. The Xi and Zeta classes, who do all the work there, hatch iut their offspring only by test tube. * * * "WOW !", EXCLAIMS GEORGE, "just being alone with you makes me feel so way-out I don't even think I'll take my stepped-up ration of Soma !" Soma is the Saturn vitamin that keeps the Alpha or intel- ectual class from feeling any pain or sadness. It also makes them more amenable to the plans of the Master Machine. "Well", replies .label, "I must say I think you over did the Soma a little at the wedding •eception, but if you are going to cut your ration so am I." * * * A SHORT TIME LATER, GEORGE AND Mabel take the blastoff • attachments off their rocket and put on the wheels so they can drive around Earth a little to absorb some local color and observe the natives. 'It doesn't look nearly so romantic as it does back home", says Mabel. 'Not a bit like the time we watched Earth rise over Antenaeball Stadium or like in the songs, "Earth Over Biami" or "Earthlight and Roses." * * * GEORGE IS NOT ACCUSTOMED TO STEERING HIS rocket. At home on Saturn all vehicles are controlled by Central Radar and you merely sit in them and ride. He gets so interested in looking at a native — a young, blonde female — that he nearly crashes into a lamp post. Mabel has little trouble reverting to a back-seat driver. "George!" she screams, "Be careful! Do you want to be arrested for driving while failing to be under the influence of Soma ?" »,.*'*' ,"I CAN DRIVE JUST AS, GOOD sober as I can after I've had a few", insists George. "Besides, these natives are blamed interesting. They are in a natural state, like the people on Saturn were befbre the Master Machine decided to replace some of their more non-functional parts with plastic ones." Mabel; whose tonsils,'appendix and mammary glands have long-since been replaced by tubes, takes.this remark from, her bridegroom as a-personalinsult. "Well I", she says huffily, "if you are going to be profane and criticize'the'works'of the Master Machine, I'll hop the next rocket out of here and go home to Mother !" , • * * * "MOTHER !, MOTHER .', MOTHER !", George sneers. "Doesn't she realize she is an anachronism ? Doesn't she know she is one of the few women on Saturn allowed to keep her maternal instincts after her child-bearing years are over ? The Master Machine decreed it thus so that there would be somebody to pay tribute to on Mother's Day and so that Saturn politicians would have somebody to owe all that they are :o their Angel Mothers ! Next thing you know she'll be advocating old- ashioned home-cooking instead of decent, self-respecting meals in a pill !" * * * "I'M SORRY, GEORGE", apologizes Mabel, "I guess the fact that 'm finally Mrs. George Astronoid is so new to me, and this funny, quaint Earth is so strange that I'm getting a little unbalanced. Any- vay, I'm beginning to think honeyearths are a little ove'rated. To really ippreciate them, people should go on them after they've been married en years. Right now, I can hardly wait to get home and hang the cur- ains and see how those darling lamps the girls at the office gave me ook in our living room." * * * AT THIS POINT, GEORGE GIVES out with a gigantic sneeze. "Oh, Darling !" Mabel says tenderly. "You are coming down with a cold ! jet's get you back to the rocetel immediately and I'll fix you a nice ot bath and a drink of Soma. I don't want to seem sacreligious about he Great Master Machine, but I do wish that since he has done so nuch to entirely eliminate polio, cancer, tuberculosis and heart disease, e could finally do something about getting rid of the only illness we ave left — the common cold !" * « * THIS WEEK'S RECIPE IS FOR three bean salad, contributed to the 'resbyterian cookbook by Mrs. Henry Lund. 1 can green beans, drained 1 can yellow wax beans, drained 1 can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed in cold water 1 cup cut-up celery 1 medium onion, chopped fine 1 green pepper, chopped fine Dressing % cup vinegar ] /2 cup sugar ¥2 cup salad oil Mix dressing well and pour over vegetables.
