But the high prices the champion animals have been bringing for the past four years didn't happen by accident. It's the result of much behind - the - scenes work by a 17-member Sale of Champions committee. Their goal is to make the sale of champion animals at the Jr. Roundup bigger and better each year. This, in turn, provides a greater incentive for boys and girls to participate In the livestock shows and work harder to be a winner. "The Sale of Champions committee, composed primarily of Jackson area businessmen and a few others related to farming, was formed just before the 1970 sale," said Dr. Duane Tucker, 4-H livestock specialist for the Mississippi Cooperative Extension Service. "The overall objective of the committee is to- see that the champion animals of the Jr. Roundup are sold at premium prices," added Dr. Tucker, a member of the committee. "Dixie National is a prestigious show and we fart hv want tne sae f champion idii, uy annuals iu ue equally prestigious," explained H. K. Robertson, a Jackson businessman who is chairman of the committee. Xs ?s.-,-' ; L J SALE OF CHAMPIONS - Members of the Dixie National sale of junior champions committee discussing plans for the 1975 sale are, from left, J. W. Fielder, Jasper Lowe, H. K. Robertson and Theo Dinkin, all of Jackson. Sale records of the past few years verify Robertson's assessment of success. Total receipts of the 26 beef, hog and sheep champions in 1970 were $6,300. That figure climbed to $19,573 in 1973 and reached a record $28,233 in 1974. Champion steers averaged $2.26 a pound, lambs $5.62 and hogs $2.39 a pound in 1974. Included in the sale of champions are the breed champions of beef, hog and sheep, as well as the grand champion and reserve grand champions of each livestock category.

The reported prices of the launches varied from $3500 to $8000! Sometimes the inventor and farmer took "time out" and went to the woods with the works of John Wesley. There he would read all day. He also spent much time writing in his diary. " When Richard Henington died at Belem on June 29, 1894, he left an important mark on Brazil. The naming of a school for him this year shows how lasting was that impression. . . According to Senora Guilhon, Santarem now has 70,000 inhabitants; and the coming of the Curua-Una Hydro-electric Company is expected to add greatly to its population. Her description of Santarem is particularly interesting. She says it is "....right on-the confluence of the Amazon and the Tapa-jos rivers, and one struggles with the other right in front of the town itself; and it is a Congress Rollcalls By JOHN SPARKS WASHINGTON - Rollcalls in Congress were at a minimum (or the that the 1974 Sale of Champions was great," Robertson added. Discover Technique For X-Rays The Radiological Health Division of the Mississippi week ended Sept. 6 . State Board of Health has instituted a new monitoring technique for all dental X-ray machines in the state, according to Eddie Fuente, division director. "We are in the process of mailing out two small crystaline compounds (TLD) to each dentist in the state," Fuente said. "These radia- dealers, restaurant operators, etc., who would be interested in the people that would be coming in for the show. We also talked with farm equipment dealers, feed dealers and other business people that are closely related to agriculture," Robertson added. "The first three years we had a closed sale and everyone who bought an animal knew in advance what it was going to cost. However, this wasn't producing the results we wanted, so at the suggestion of Harlan Knight of Jackson, we went to an open sale in 1973 for the first time and found that it's tion with the sale is to help much better. In competetive organize the sale and contact bidding, you never know who people who would be interested in buying the animals," Robertson said. "We first contacted businessmen in the Jackson area such as automobile The Senate returned to action slow action that is -"on Wednesday. The House of Representatives will not return until Wednesday of this week. Members of both of the Houses still are hopeful of getting out of Washington by the middle of October for a few days of intensive campaigning before the general election in November. Here is how Mississippi's senators voted on important rollcalls last week. Confirmation of the protocol to the is going to buy the animal nor how much it's going to cost," Robertson explained.. J. W. Fielder, another committee member from Jackson, said, ."The kids have worked hard on their projects and spent a lot of money. They deserve our support. We have gotten local people interested and involved and this is what makes the sale go. All we on the committee get out of it is self - satisfaction, but I enjoy it." Robertson said that the members of the committee meet several times each year and determine who might be interested in bidding on the animals. Committee members then contact the prospective bidders to make plans for the sale. "We work with buyers any member of the Sale of Cham pions committee is seeing young people develop," he added. One of the- producer members of the committee, Ed Buelow of Vicksburg, said the committee definitely helped exhibitors get higher prices for their animals. "I think there is more interest in livestock projects in the state than ever before, and part of this Interest is created by a good sale of champions." DrV James Collins and Dr. Duane Tucker of Mississippi State University both have really put a lot Into making the show and sale a success," Buelow stated.
