WILL INCREASE 4-H MEMBERSHIP Planned as Means to Help Food Production CLARION--In an effort to make a larger contribution to the food production effort in Wright county, a membership campaign has been planned to increase the number of rural boys and girls in county 4-H clubs. A goal of 110 members has been set up and this goal has been broken down according to clubs in the county. . The amount that the 4-H club members in Wright county can contribute to the war effort during the coming year is tied up directly with the number of- boys and girls that are members of the 4-H club organization. Producing foot! is a job that every rural boy and girl can do and do well and President Roosevelt and Secretary of Agriculture Wickard have asked for a substantial increase on every farm for 1943. Each club president will act as chairman o£ the campaign. The campaign date closes Jan. 28. Special recognition will be given to the first club to reach its goal and to the club that makes the largest increase.
