Last year, 17 of the 19 4-H clubs participated in the annual event. The majority of the 4-H clubs have a window display and at least one story about 4-H. One club arranged and held a community meeting; other clubs participated in community meetings and various other items. This week is the time for 4- H members to "tell a n d sell" 4-H. Anyone 8 to 20 may be a member of 4-H. Those interested may contact a 4-H c 1 u b linear them, visit with your friends who are in 4-H or stop by the extension office in the courthouse for more information. The committee has spent a lot of time preparing for this week. Mrs. .George Santarpia, with the assistance of Dennis Mclntire and Carolyn Mages, has arranged with KOFO for three talks and some spot announcements. Janice Milliken spent considerable time on banners, grace cards and stories. Connie McClure contacted the seven service clubs in Franklin County to have programs during this Week.

Sometimes it's in the back, you know." Firsthand Reports Highlight International Relations Study Officers Beaten MEDICINE LODGE, Kan. (AP) —A city policeman and Sheriff C. L. Bishop were badly beaten by two youths in a fight that left the Barber County sheriff's office a shambles Tuesday night. The youths then loaded Patrolman Otto Smith and Bishop into Smith's police car and drove to Dodge City where they were stopped and jailed by Ford County deputies. Smith and Bishop were hospitalized. An all points bulletin issued by an undersheriff who discovered the disordered office at Medicine Lodge alerted Sheriff Jimmy Davis at Dodge City, 135 miles northwest of Medicine Lodge. Davis identified the fugitives as Robert Nichols and Max Millie, believed to be California itinerants. Smith had picked them up in Medicine Lodge for questioning, Davis said.

To Release New Wheat To Seedmen A male-sterile Bison wheat is being released jointly by the Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and the Agricultural Research Service, USDA, to bona fide plant breeders of hybrid wheat, Dr. C. Peairs Wilson, director of the KSU station, announced this week. Plant breeders developing hybrid wheats at other state experiment stations, federal research scientists, and commercial company plant breeders each may request seeds of the new male-sterile Bison. The new male - sterile Bison was developed in research at K- State's Fort Hays Branch Station by Dr. J. A. Wilson, collaborating with Dr. W. M. Ross, and recent ly continued by Dr. R. W. Livers who succeeded Wilson when he went with a commercial seed com pany. Male sterility in wheat is a kej requirement in the developmen of hybrid wheat. Wide release o the new wheat material will per mit a broad attack on the research that still must be don before hybrid wheat can be made available to wheat farmer: Male - sterile plants pollinate< by ordinary Bison wheat set see< ated in developing male-sterile jlants of many existing wheat varieties simply by backcrossing. Material that restores fertility hat usually contains varying characteristics of the wheats in its pedigree. Wilson developed a restorer for Bison male-sterile wheat.; the Nebraska Experiment Station recently announced another; and Livers found another probable restorer. Wide research by interested plant breeders should result in superior wheat hybrids for farmers in a few years, Director Wil son said. NO DOLLS - Actress Jill St. John, who once told interviewers she shunned dolls as a child in favor of toy cash register, is starting new Hollywood role— and may be heading for new life as single girl. Some movie observers say she'll file for divorce from Woolworth heir Lance Reventlow before long, reportedly because of her interest in career and his in auto racing. Here she displays an outfit she'll wear in "Who's Been Sleeping in My Bed?" normally. Other common wheats are expected to behave the sam way, so no difficulty is antici THE OTTAWA HERALD Wednesday, Feb. 27, 1963 Name South' Holstein Officers IOLA, Kan.

Would Fit Seat To The Sitter From Your Full-Service Bank CREEP FEED EARLY LAMBS so you'll be able to market them as early as possible, preferably in May. A simple ration containing 60 Ibs. of cracked corn, 30 Ibs. whole oats, plus 10 Ibs. soybean meal, will give good results. If you have only a small number of lambs, it may be more economical to purchase commercial creep rations. s There will be fewer spring lambs this year indicating good prices in April and May — probably better than year-ago levels. SOIL COMPACTION PROBLEMS can be greatly reduced by plowing with both rear tractor wheels out of the furrow., Some plow setting adjustments will be necessary to do this. Aside from less compaction, there are other benefits to be gained. A level tractor is more restful for the driver. Shifting equal traction to both wheels reduces wear in the differential and wheel bearings. Fuel consumption is also improved. The driver may have some difficulty at first holding the tractor the right distance from the furrow, but this can be overcome with a little practice. CALVING TROUBLE this spring can be prevented by proper late winter feeding. Cows underfed during pregnancy may drop lighter calves. Get the protein level up. Feed 1.5 to 2 pounds of 40% protein meal per day and increase roughage where needed. After calving, energy feeding is siost important. Unless protein and energy requirements are properly met after calving, animals will be slow coming in heat. Conception rate may be low too. SHARPLY LOWER BEEF PRICES are cutting profits out of feeding. Market is not expected to improve soon. Don't hold heavy cattle for market improvement. Take a least cost ration for calves and aim for sales in the fall or kite summer. WASHINGTON (AP) - Aside from her fingers, what part of a secretary's anatomy gets the most wear? That's right, and Rep. Tom Steed, D-Okla., is concerned about it. "You have only to look down the hall to see they're not all the same size," Steed says. His remedy would be to provide the Capitol Hill girls with a choice of chair sizes. Steed, chairman of the Legislative Appropriations subcommittee, is a sort of housekeeper for Congress. His subcommittee must approve whatever Congress spends itself, for curtains, watercoolers, garages, office help, furniture and what-have-you, That's where Steed's concern with the comfort of the secretarial help comes in. A* loaf as ww furnitaw must be bought, Steed said, there might as well be two or three styles of stenographers' chairs, and different sizes. "Nobody can do a good day's work if they have to sit in a strained position," Steed said. Dr. George W. Carver, the Capitol physician, agrees with Steed on providing a variety of chair sizes and shapes. "I think it's a good idea," Calver said. "After all, anything you can do to get more work out of a stenographer is all to the good." More seriously, he said, "You can't take a wman who weighs 200 pounds and have her comfortable on the same chair a 00-pound stenographer sits in."
