(Herald Photo) Conservation Comments By MARILYN WASMUND 4-H Council Reporter If you would have visited any of the Franklin County 4-H clubs during the month of January you would have been in for a real treat! The clubs were in copetition to find the best club in their area. This club would represent the area in the model meeting at County Club Day. Almost every member really was on his toes during the January meetings — everyone wanted to put on his best for the judges. The meetings were judged according to the rules that will be used at County Club Day, Feb. 16. The county WM divided into four areas, northeast, northwest, southeast and southwest. T h e team from the northeast judged the clubs in the southeast, and vice versa. The team from the southwest judged the clubs in the northwest and vice versa. The four teams were made up of two junior leaders and one adult' leader, all of these having an alternate, making a team consist of six members. Clubs receiving blues were Greenwood Rockets, Trail Blazers and SHAFF. Clubs receiving reds were Clover Leaf, Centennial, Silver Leaf, Full O'Pep, Junior Judgers, Rainbow, Princeton Jolly Workers, Shining Star and Acorn Rustlers. Clubs receiving whites Victory Workers, Westerners, Pottawatomie Valley. Clubs receiving top Hues wer» Rambling Ranchers, Berea Boosters, Town and Country and Far and Near. The clubs receiving the top blues will go to County Club Day and participate in the model meetings. The 'committee which organized the judging would like to thank those who judged the meetings. We hope to do this again next year. Emphasizing Wildlife In Conservation Plan Irvin By IRVIN ROSS Conservationist The Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service (ASCS) is the agency of the US Department of Agriculture which carries out action programs in the general fields of production adjustment, conservation cost- sharing and price and market stabilization. The Agricultural Conservation Program of ASCS provides cost - share assistance to farmers for carrying out on individual farms such conservation practices as establishing and improving vegetative cover of grasses, legumes or trees for soil HDU Notes Lessons On Ceramics, Handicrafts A lesson on ceramics was given by Mrs. Ray Talbott at the January meeting of the Worthwhile HDU. The unit met with Mrs. Harry Loyd, with Mrs. Anna Bryan and Mrs. Ruby Becker assisting. A vegetable soup lunch was served. Dues were paid. It was planned to have a white elephant sale at the February meeting. Mrs. Pearl Davidson and Arlis Loyd were guests and became new members. Mrs. Lois Curry, Mrs. Anna Bryan and Mrs. Glenice Brown received secret pal gifts. Rock Creek — Various handicrafts, plus a covered dish luncheon, were features when 10 members of the Rock Creek unit met at the home of Mrs. George Griffin. Mrs. Charles Schoonover presided during the business session during which Mrs. L. W. Seright was elected vice president. Mystery pal names were drawn and dues were paid. protection, installing erosion control structures, practices especially beneficial to wild life, and practices for the conservation or more efficient use of water. For 1963, ACT is especially encouraging soil and water conservation practices which are of primary benefit to wildlife. Both financial and technical assistance are available for developing shallow water areas, for constructing ponds, for establishing cover and food plots and for other practices that will help wildlife. Since programs of the ASCS require direct dealing with the farmer, a key feature always has been local administration of the program through the farmer - committee system. At county and community levels, ASCS farmer committees are elected by their neighbors to administer the farm-action programs. State farmer committees, serving as representatives of both farmers and government, are appointed by the secretary of agriculture. This method of administration helps assure that the various programs will be practical, effective and representative of the farmers' needs and wishes. Through ASCS's Agricultural Conservation Program, the Gov- ernment each year shares with more than a million farmers and ranchers the cost of soil, water, woodland and wildlife conservation practices on individual farms and ranches throughout the nation. Funds are authorized by Congress for this purpose in recognition of the fact that these resources are vital not only to the farmers and ranchers who operate the land but also to the health and well-being of each citizen, both now and in the future. This assistance is viewed as an investment in the public interest to help insure the wise use and adequate protection of the nation's farmlands.
