"H 4-H Alumni Support 6 Alma Mater' A fairly new undertaking in Kansas 4-H activities, but one that is fast gaining enthusiasm, is the 4-H Alumni Roll Call. This is a part of the Kansas 4-H Foundation program and has several purposes. On a local level, the main ef- fort is to compile a list of former 4-H members, including the recent address of each. This list should be part of the responsibility of the "historian" of the club. The historian will provide the extension office with a copy of this 4-H alumni "roll call," and a duplicate copy will be sent to the state office in Manhattan for alumni directors there to use in their attempt to contact as many former 4-H'ers as possible.

Mrs. James Cubit of Garnctt is one of the 15 directors of the state 4-H alumni organization. • Sixteen of the 19 4-H clubs in this county have a historian, either by election or appointment, and most attended officers training school in October. It is hoped that by use of old secretary's books and other club materials that each historian will make as much progress as possible in listing his club's former members. The historian might also like to keep a notebook of club activities, similiar though not as complete as the club reporter's notebook. Kansas 4-H Alumni officers list purposes of the organization as: 1. To assist the local county 4- H program through promotional activities and leadership. 2. To develop good will for 4- H. 3. To give financial support to the 4-H program through the 4- H Foundation. All alumni listed on state records will receive the "News and Views," a publication of the Foundation, with one section devoted to alumni news. Promotional activities of alumni may include booths at fairs, compiling of club histories and libraries, sponsoring alumni days and a weekend at Rock Springs Ranch. Alumni will assist extension personnel in any way possible and will try to have an alumni representative for each county in the state. Kansas 4-H Alumni officers will meet March 9 at Manhattan to make further plans for the 4-H Roll Call program. Franklin County will be represented by Mr. and Mrs. Cecil E. Vining, Richmond. Suggestions from anyone interested in 4-H may be left at the county Extension office and PEOPLES NATIONAL Congratulations 4-H The 4-H PLEDGE "I Pledge — My Head to clearer thinking, My Heart to greater loyalty, My Hands to larger service, My Health to better living, for my club, my community and my country. 4-H CLUB WEEK [ - ^^.

To learn how one club in the county is preparing its alumni roll call, watch for the story about historian Cathy Brockus of the Rainbow 4-H Club in the April 10th issue of The Herald. Meanwhile, to assist club historians, it is suggested that every former 4-H'er contact his own club or the club nearest him if that club is no longer existing and place his name on the "4-H Roll Call."
