We AGRICULTURE Soil types and milk testing are the two ideas that have been foremost in the minds of the agricultural studjgnts at Scottville high school during the last two weeks. Last week the boys studied the soil types on their farms. The first step was the making of a soil-type map of the farm, after which each of the most important soil types on the farm were studied individually, in connection with this work a field trip was taken Thursday by the 10th grade class to the Hansen farm iy 2 miles north of Scottville, to study the Nester loam and. the Munuscong sandy loom on that farm. Representative samples were taken of each soil so that they might be analyzed in the laboratory at a later date. The week before, Mr. Burrell Lydic, milk-tester for the Mason -Oceana Dairy Herd Improvement association, was the guest of the agricultural classes. His purpose in visiting the . . class was to present a demon- i working-, stration on official milk testing foreman and to tell the class about his ™°" work in the association. The pupils and teacher agreed that his lectures were both interesting and educational. This visit was in accordance with the activities being undertaken by both agricultural classes at that time. Mr. Lydic's demonstrations were preceded by demonstrations and studies of milk testing during the early part of the week. Out of the day's discussion there came a suggestion that the students organize a periodical testing- of cows on their farms, the testing to be done m class. This undertaking- would be for the mutual benefit of the community as well as the individual. Mr. Lydic suggested that possibly a Junior Dairy Herd Improvement association might be formed by the boys to parallel the activities of the adult association tor which he works. The only difference would be that the boys would do their own testing, weighing and figuring- of rations instead of having an official milk tester do it The milk testing work is continuing- now and the boys are beginning work on soil acidity and the use of lime at present time. from meat scraps and lye bleached from hardwood ashes. She made apple butter in a huge brass kettle, still in existence. Since there was no well on the farm water had to be carried from a nearby spring. The family laundry was carried to a creek when the weather permitted. The water was heated in a big cauldron kettle and the clothes scrubbed one by one on a washboard, then boiled in the kettle. Two children were born on the farm. They are Mrs. May Olson of Minneapolis, Minn., and Warren Genson of Ludington. Kindly and helpful in her dis- j position, Mrs. Genson responded to every call and they were many, in aiding those early settlers both in sickness and death. In her capacity as neighborhood nurse she brought many babies into the W9rld without a doctor's aid, sometimes two generations of the same family. Mi's. Gen.son knitted, socks and mittens, crochetted lace, spun yarn, pieced quilts and gathered wild fruit. The fruit i f icers were elected by the I members of the class: Gen- ieral superintendent, Ivan An- 'derson; publicity manager, Cor- iliss Kortge; safety engineer, Frank Claveau; shop foreman for drawing, Howard Rohrmos- er; shop foreman for wood- Frank Bailey; shop for metal, Guy Huffman. A period of six weeks constitutes a term in office. After the first six weeks of service of each school term, all of the above named officers will again be elected in an open meeting during a regular meeting of the class. , CORLISS KORTGE, Publicity Manager. SENIOR CLASS The Senior class is starting early to raise money for their trip next spring. They have several money making ideas, one which is now being used, that is each class member was given a box of Christmas cards to sell. Other money making ideas are selling candy, sponsoring a movie, and sandwich salej. STUDENT COUNCIL Student Council member at large will be elected by the student body on Friday. At a meeting this afternoon the members of the Student Council decided to have an all-high school hard times party on vJCt. ol. in jugs and jars. She was one of the few fortunate pioneers to own a sewing machine and many children went to school clothed in garments made by her nimble fingers. One exciting experience which , was a credit to her courage came j when she decided to shoot a bear I which was attempting to invade the Genson garden. Stationing her oider daughter, May, in a safe place to watch the bear's movements, Mrs. Genson hurried to the house to load Mr. Genson's muzzle loading rifle, a task that required time. Mrs. Bruin and two cubs bered into the garden and May screamed, "Here she comes, Mai Here she comes!" This sent the bears scampering as effectively as a shot. If Mrs. Genson had shot and only wounded the beat the family wonders what miglft have happened. While Mrs. Genson's health is far from good she is spry and active enough to assist m the housework of her son with whom she lives. She is still interested in quilt making and fancy work and last year exhibited a hand crocheted bedspread which took first prize at the Western Michigan fair. Always interested in civic betterment and community Christianity, she was for many years a Sunday school superintendent and teacher. She was president of the "Willing Workers" Aid society which flourished for many years at Sugar Grove. Except for a short residence in Huntsville, Ala., and in Lake county, Mrs. Genson has spent nearly 58 years in this county. Freesoii Friends will be pleased to learn that Mrs. Homer Coon, of Detroit, formerly Bernice Howell of Freesoii was honoree at a recent shower given by Mrs. George Moore, her sister-in-law, also a former Freesoii resident. Mr. and Mrs. Clare Tubba visited relatives in Grand Rapids Sunday. Bernard Tubbs, who came from Lansing to spend the week-end at his home here, returned with them.
