The cropping program is extremely important to th e success of most Kansas farms because the income in most cases is cither from th e sale of crops, or from the sale of livestock which eat the farm-grown feed. -Where enough cropland is available to provide most of the needed income, the farmer must select the crop s best suited to the land, the local climate, and the market.

It does provide University level training in the management and both capital and labor. Tlwre are, however, definite differences in both the capital and labor requirements of various projects. For example, dairying still requires hig.l labor outlays in spite of .modem equipment. Most beef cattle projects require extensive amouhts of land and capital. Hogs tend to fit- best where large quantities of feed grain can be readily produced or purchased to advantage.

Plant Sciences. Over Hie Backyard Fence By ELSIE BKANDEN Home Economics Agent As you have watched presentations of 4-H'ers and their accomplishments, at the public revue during our fair, have you wondered how the ribbons are awarded, on what basis the plac- ings are made? In the style dress revue four major points make up the judging 'guidi3 or score card. They are the girl, the outfit on the girl, construction of the garments and the girl's 4-H club work, especially in clothing. ^yhen the judges review the girls as they model their ensembles, they notice posture, poise, grooming am 1 attitude. They consider the becomittgness of the outfit to the gill, choice of texture, color snd style; fit; accessories; and the value for money spent. Accurate cutting and the quality of work as it contributed to the "professional" look are points under construction. Tlie boys entering the best groomed boy content are judged on the same points as the girls with the exception of the construction. Participation in grooming is the major consideration in 4-H club work. When you attend your county 4-H styie dress revue and best groomed boy contest thi s month, remember these points as the awards are announced. This information may make the event more interesting and meaningful to you. The Ftnney County Judging of the Best Groomed Boy contest and Style Revue will be August 16. 8:30 a.m. in the Co-op Center. The public is invited to the judging.

Kabob combinations can be as limitless a s your imagination and provide an opportunity for you to be creative with food. Beef, chicken and summer vegetables — all summer plentlfuls — are excellent ideas fbr katoobs. Try pork, fish and the traditional lamb on a stick. For a k a b o b that is "just right", select foods (hat require approximately the same cooking time. Alternate meats and vegetables on the skewer, keeping each piece away from the next so the heat can reach all sides. For extra flavor, marinate the meat for a few hours or overnight in a seasoned vinegar sauce and spoon the sauce over the meat an it cooks. Allow 10 to 16 min- utee for broiling, depending on how well done you want the meat. Some may prefer their beef rare. Here are some kabob combination suggestions — beef cubes, mushrooms and siloed onions; frank s cut into 1-lnch pieces, pineapple chunks and sliced bacon; chicken livers, slices of bacon and mushrooms; beef cubes with quartered tomatoes, carrots and small cooked onions; cubes of bologna, sliced onion and slic- Ed bacon; ham with sweet pota- toe and pineapple chunks.
