At the present time Floyd Coffman and Mrs. C. Raymond Smith are our adult leaders. It has been very interesting to serve as historian for our club this year. We have a record for each person who has been a member of our club, listing the LITTLE GULPER — A jackrabbit, about 2'/ 2 weeks old, gulps away at bottle held by 10-year-old Beth Funk who lives near Garden City. Her father caught it in a field. Beth feeds it twice daily. Pretty Legs Are Valuable projects they have carried and the offices Ihey have held. Our club has grown during the year, and we now have 59 menv bers and 75 alumnae. Our regu lar meeting place has been the Wycoff Community House, but during the winter months we have been meeting at the high school. Our members have always shown great interest in the County Fair with many winning State blue ribbons, and going on to win top honors at the State Fairs. Throughout the years many of (our members have won County Awards in various projects and activities. Our club was chosen this year as State Award winner for our automotive project work under leadership of Mr. Aubrey Ponton. The Rambling Ranchers chorus has been chosen [o represent Franklin County at Regional 4-H Club Day three different times. This was achieved through the help of Mrs. Hank North in 1959 and Mrs. Willis Bennett in 1961 and 1963. We also have entered dances, bands, plays, and model meetings at County Club Day. Many of our members look forward to the talks and demonstrations they will give in county competition. Much valuable experience is received from these entries.

(AP)-Kansas State University and the Cheyenne County 4-H Club Council will share a $2,000 grant as the result of an award won by Lyle Seymour, Bird City farmer. Seymour was one of 15 farmers given awards in the Ford Almanac's annual farm efficiency program. The award also gave him the right to designate agencies of his choice to share a $2,000 Ford Motor Co. Fund grant. Seymour, who will be guest of honor at a dinner in Bird City tonight, directed that $1,500 be used to purchase equipment for the plant diagnostic laboratory at K-State and $500 be used by the 4-H council for citizenship scholarships. Seymour's award was made on the basis of efficient corn production. He produced 133 bushels of corn an acre on 105 acress of irrigated land last year at a cost of 38 cents a bushel. LONDON (AP)—"Girls do wear short skirts most of the time," said High Court Judge Sir Richard Elwes, "and pretty, shapely legs are admired in our time, and I think rightly so." Then he awarded 1,384 pounds— $3,875 — in damages Tuesday to Vivian Pettit, 26, whose pretty legs were injured when a motorist hit her scooter. The crash left a bad scar, and one of her legs was noticeably bowed. "It is the kind of disfigurement that a young woman has to worry about," said the judge. "I think a girl is entitled to feel unhappy about having ugly legs."

TERMS: Cash Not Responsible for Accidents AUCTS: Ben Printy & Son CLERK: Jean Printy From Your Full-Service Bank CLEANING SPRAY EQUIPMENT of all traces of previously applied chemicals is a must before the sprayer is used again. Flush equipment thoroughly and remove nozzles for separate cleaning. Circulate a solution of one pound of washing soda per 25 gallons of water through the sprayer. Pump the solution out, rinse, refill and allow to stand for at least 24 hours. Rinse with fresh water several times, then leave filled until used. USING MOTOR OIL in your tractor hydraulic system may be an old-fashioned and costly practice. Hydraulic systems in newer model tractors have much higher pressures than models of several years ago. They have closer tolerances and often require special fluids. Correct oil gives best operation because it has more resistance to foaming and overheat- Ing. Even if the cylinders are leaking excessively, it isn't wise to use cheap oil as it will thin out quickly and leak even more. FEED NEEDS TO TASTE GOOD. Feeds may contain all the necessary nutrients in proper balance and still not give satisfactory results. If a ration does not taste good, feed efficiency will be impaired. Not only will animals fail to eat the right amounts of unpalatable feeds, but digestion will be inhibited. Familiarity and habit are other factors concerned with the palatability of a ration. Avoid sudden shifts from one feed to another. PUBLIC LIABILITY INSURANCE offers protection against a wide variety of risks that can result in severe losses. Courts often consider the farm owner responsible for the safety of all those who normally come onto the farm, even trespassers. Where negligence is proven claims can be very large, so don't take the chance. Governor John Anderson, Jr. has proclaimed the week of April 21 through 27 as Clean-Up Week in Kansas. Spring Clean-Up Week has become an American tradition and this week provides an opportunity for homeowners to dispose of combustible rubbish on which fires can feed.
