This artide is written by Mrs. John Miller of the Progressive Home Demonstration Unit. Many of the vegetables we take for granted have an interesting history. Let's take a look at the "Vegetable Story". Many fowls have come and gone during the course of human history but the peoples' -likeing for pickles ha s steadily persisted. Early history states that pickles contributed much to beauty and health. The bean goes back to prehistoric times, spring up first in Alberia and moving with civilization to E gy p t and Europe. Greeks and Romans ate beans but many believed them to cause trouble, blindness and insanity. It took Columbus and the discovery of America to bring green beans to Europe. Green Beans grew in tooth the Americas and were widely used by Indians as a staple. Early settlers, especially those who traveled, depended on their high nutritive value and low bulk to help them along their way. It is said that the "mess of pottage" for which Esau sold his birthright consisted of a bowl of soaked dry beans. Whether this is true o r not, the fact remains that beans are among the oldest and most universally used of all foods known to man. The carrot, known since anci-J NEW LINCOLN 180-AMP AC WELDER New $110.00 WELDERS SUPPLY Phone BR 6-4861 ca soon after tho discovery of the New World. It was grown by the struggling colonists of Jamestown, Virginia, in 1609. The story is-told that'Children of the Flathead tribe in Oregon liked carrots so well that they could not resist stealing thorn from fields, although they' resisted stealing other things. In the early days only the leaves of the beets were eaten. In tlie second and third centuries the Roman Epicures gave recipes for the cooking of the beet root. Not until 1806 was a red beet variety listed in catalogs in the United States. The Pilgrims were forced to rely on corn for their survival, even though they did not relish it as we do today. It was a gift of corn from a generous Indian chief and its raising that gave us our first Thanksgiving Day. AsParagus is a perennial plant that takes three years to establish. However, once a bed is started it may remain productive, under the best conditions for 25 to 30 years and longer. When asparagus appears above the ground it grows rapidly, sometimes from 8 to 10 inches in one day. The chief food values of asparagus are niacin, Vitamin A, Calcium,'Iron and Ascorbic Acid. The Tomato, called an "apple of love by tlie French, was first used as ;an ornamentation ilt was believed by European i people, in tlie 16th century to be poisonous; We are fortunate to have discovered their excellent taste and nutritive value. Today, tomatoes, or a tomato product are used in adlmost every main meal. las Litton, Eager Beavers; Joei LeFort, Happy Hustlers; David i Rintoul, St. Mary's Allies; and! Donna and Richard Llghtncr of the Wide Awake club. Th» entomology project w a s not instigated to develop entomologists. But is a part of a plan to help develop a greater apreciation for Insects and to teach their importance to man. Besides learning the various classes of insects and names of their relatives, 4-H' are taught to indentify common insects and how to control them. By learning this, they can apply knowledge gained in entomology to other projects such as gardening, dairying and care of livestock.' Many insocts also need to be controlled in connection with the production of forage and grain crops to feed their 4-H animals projects. Collections are a valuable part of tlie project. Members gather insects, usually in tlie adult form, and are taught tlie proper method for killing and spreading them. These exhibits usually draw a lot of interest at the county fair or wherever they arc shown. Some of the first items to be conducted a s part of the entomology project ar e making insect tilling jars, insect nets a n cl spreading boards and shown the proper mounting procedures. Some of the requirements to complete the entomology project calls for demonstrations and talks before other 4-H'ers; collect at least 25 species of insects. Th«y must be able to identify the species an orders of insects in their collections. For instance they Icam early |n the project that a Lepidoptera is a butterfly and an Orthoptera is the name attached to grass- lioppers, roaches and the 1 i k e. Some of tlie most pesky bugs at the present time are Diptera (flies). Like any other 4-H project, entomology members may deserve various awards for outstanding achievement. On a county basis, medals of honor can be awarded. An all-expense paid trip to the National 4-H Club Congress in Chicago goes to state winners; and a $400 college scholarship may be presented to a state winner as a national award.

Eighteen members, one guest, and twenty-six parents and relatives attended the July meeting of the Sherlock Strivcrs 4-H Club. The meeting was a family picnic in Finnup Park. During roll call some of the members signed tlie constitution. U is hoped that the signing can be completed at the August meeting. Several announcements wore made and the President, Arlene Rupp, appointed Judy Pfleff, Karla Schiffclbein, Virginia Baler, 'David Ulrich, Alan Rupp, and Terry Linonberger to work on clean up day which is to be at tlie 4-H building on July 26.

Stor-N-Feed providei greater protection because: l.THE IXCLUSIVE BRIGHT WHITt SURFACE of the new Butler Star- N-Feed tank reflects the tun'i heat, which causes greater expansion of gasei inside th* tank — also keeps down mixing of gases and dilution of preierva tive carbon dioxide gas. 2. THE EXCLUSIVE ftUUER BREATHING CHAMBEt* (a steel chamber built into the foundation—no bags to wear out, no separate units) forces the carbon dioxide to move constantly along o "tortuous path," preventing it from mixing readily Kith the oxygen. And Butler Stor- N-Feed permits less outside air to enter the tank during the breathing process —a further measure of grain safety. Butler $tor-N-Feed also has the lowest cost per bushel. Why? It is the first coaled steel tank that has been specially designed— both functionally and structurally — for high-moisture grain. The price actually compares with an in-storagt drying system.
