More than 80,000 Tex&s rural girls and boys will observe National 4-H club week from March 2-10. The occasion will be introduced by a statewide broadcast from College Station on the Texas farm and home program on the morning of Feb. 25. In Gray county 194 4-H rlub girls comprising 10 clubs and 190 boys of seven clubs, will take part in the program. Because of the Top o' Texas Junior Livestock show in which many of the 4-H boys will participate, special activities during National 4-H club week have not been arranged, said Victor Joyner, assistant county agent. .Achievement days will be held by the girls' clubs throughout the week, with the final program' to be he-Id March 10 at the office of Miss Millicent Sihaub. county home demonstration agent. During Achievement Days, said Miss Srhaub. club members will si'inmarizo the year's work. Thi March 10 program will include talks on timely topi:s, demonstrations, and entertainment. Record books of rlubs arc also be handed in at that timo. -Mid p.wards will be present nd 'l-H club members. 4-H club work lias a sppcial meaning for Texans. The first boys' club in the world was formed in Jack county thirty eight years ago. The idea originated with Tom N. Marks, publish'- 1 !- of a weekly newspaper who later became county agricultural Client, for that roiinty. . The first group was organized to grow belter rorn and was known as the InyK 1 corn club. The first girls' ckft) in Texas was in Milam county where girls' tomato clubs were or- ganised in 1912. That's the history of the youth movement which tics Texas so closely with 4-H club work. Sin:e the small beginning it has spread to every state with more than a million and half enrollments, and to other countries. National 4-H club work will be ob- serVed chiefly in, the counties witl local rallies, demonstrations finr 'recognition of achievements o) clubs and individual members by Jounty officials and civic organl' nations. The 1946 observance is headed by a challenge to double the enrollment over the nation by 1950 Members of Texas girls' and boys 4-H clubs made a wonderful record in the production of food during th war years. Boys fed out and marketed thousand of meat animals anc poultry, and produced field crop? and gardens. Club girls grew gardens, canned millions of containers of food, raised poultry and even su:- cessfully invaded the boys' field o" feeding calves and pigs. Both tin boys and girls made this record while taking a larger part in regular farm work.than ever before. Club week will give 4-H'member: an opportunity to check their efforts to date and reaffirm their intention to carry their 1946 club goals to completion. New Weld-Killer Costs Only $1 COLUMBUS, Ohio. — American homeowners now keep their lawns free of weeds at an average cost of $1 a season as the result of a new development in 2, 4-D a weed- killing plant hormone, scientists at the Ohio State agricultural experi- ment'station'revealed today.
