FFA His interest in veterinary medicine was sparked by an uncle who managed a large Angus research ran* in Pine Blulf, Ark. Keith spent several months working there and developing an interest in field research. He has several interests besides agribusiness and veterinary medicine. "I write stories," he admitted in a recent interview. "But I haven't had any published yet," Most of them center on conservation, a topic he can expound on at great length." I did a paper on conservation politics after living on a lake for five years (including summers) and I could really see a change in the land," he explained. "The shoreline gets filled with more beer cans and paper every year. "Congress has passed some good programs in conservation, but the money doesn't always seem to get appropriated," he observed. • He's written several other stories, usually short ones with outdoor themes,and hopes to eventually get some of them published. His only real problem is finding time for all his activities. Besides his school work and long hours at the hardwire store be has put in time on the senior class play, been active in Boys State, managed the wrestling and track teams, and been in the National Horticulture Society. A ^year-old Appleton man, Daniel Smith, received the other top honor at the convention when he was named State Star Fanner last night. He operates a 240*cre farm, and has a 5,000-bushel storage bin and a (,000-bushel drying bin, phis several smaller buildings.
