To replace farmers who retire or otherwise leave the farm, there must be men with training and experience .enough to become successful farmers. Generally, they must be men today who have begun farming ai an early age, so that by the time they are ready to marry and start a family they will be firmly established in a farming program that promises a GOOD future. Vocational Agriculture and the FFA constitute that program — to train boys to be' good farmers, and then helping them to become established in the farming occupations of their choice. In view of the nation's need, it is fitting that recognition be given these young men in our midst, who are preparing for careers in farming. It is our belief that recognition and encouragement, at this time during their annual FFA Week observance, will do much to stimulate these fine boys to greater achievement and ultimate success. To the Future Farmers of America, in our area, and to their dedicated instructors, we pay this tribute. BRADLEY BROS., Algona. Iowa.

The West Bend FFA Chapter is exceptionally active, even producing its own newspaper, the FFA News. Projects of the chapter range from livestock judging teams, which last year performed at Spencer. Emmetsburg and the Dairy Cattle Congress at Waterloo to livestock projects which include hogs, dairy cattle, sheep, beef, poultry.
