Glub member enrolled in the national 4-H health program. About 50 boys and girls will be richer by the experience of. spending a week in Chicago as delegates to the 42nd National 4-H Club congress to be held the first week in December. A half dozen of this group will be recipients of $500 college scholarships for having the best 4-H health projects in the nation, announces the National 4-H Service Committee. * The fourth «'H" in the 4-H clover emblem stands for health, and all 2.3 million members pledged their "health to better living." But the specific 4-H health awards prdgram has stated objectives which members are supposed to achieve. Many Participate In a recent report furnished the program's sponsor, Eli Lilly and Co., the 4-H Service Committee points out that in 1962, nearly 700,000 boys and girts between 10 and 21 participated in specific 4-H health activities. Members were involved in personal health improvement, better health for the community, public health education and service. Said a 1962 health" scholarship winner, "Lessons in first-aid, child care and home nursing have enabled me to react quickly in emergencies, and administer nursing care to the sick." Another winner had this to say: "Since taking health as a 4-H project I've "learned that serious illness can often be prevented by having regular medical and dental checkups. My whole family is up to date on these." Individual clubs also promote health through demonstrations, meetings, displays and by participating in local health drives. The Cooperative Extension Service supervises 4-H clubs. European Invention To Europe belongs credit for invention of the automobile. Before the pioneer cars of America were on the streets, Europeans were driving many cars propelled by steam, electricity and gasoline. GO THROUGH PACES—At a recent obedience demonstration this young dog handler put a trio of poodles through the paces, Besides teaching dogs cute tricks, 4-H'ers train them to obey commands that make for a well-behaved pet. 4-H Setup Gains New Clubs For Dog Care and Training * In four short years the number of boys and girls enrolled in the fast-growing 4-H Club dog care and training program has increased tenfold, reports the National 4-H Service Committee. Last year enrollment nearly reached the 20,000 mark and at the end of 1963 another big jump is expected. The "pet" program is popular with city and suburban youngsters. Like their country counterparts, the off-the-farm 4-H'ers working with dogs learn about animal care and breeding. Sometimes 4-H Club leaders are local dog handlers 01 veterinarians. Obedience training, animal nutrition and grooming are some of the areas covered. The young dog fanciers soon realize that a healthy "well-mannered" dog is a joy to have around the house. Neighbors like him, too. Sponsor Program The program is sponsored nationally by the Ralston Purina Co. which not only provides a variety of awards, but also a selection of educational literature, aids for club meetings and 4-H dog shows. Members who show personal progress throughout the year have an opportunity to compete for a medal, a handsome wrist watch, and a free trip to the National 4- H- Club Congress to take place at Chicago the first week in December. Winners are named by the Cooperative Extension Service which directs this 4-H activity. The 4-H dog care and training program is not 1 one-year effort, the Extension Service points out. It provides for continuing education in owning and handling a pet. Any kind of dog may be used in Ihe project. Additional information can be obtained at the county extension office or from the state 4-H Club office. Wheat Harvest Advances at Dallas City- DALLAS CITY — Wheat harvest is in full swing in this area, and the Dallas City elevator of the Illinois Gram Corp. is a busy place. Cutting started the first of the week, and harvest began in earnest on Tuesday. Bill Davis, manager of the elevator, says quality o£ the grain is good, and reports from growers indicate yields generally are good, although actual bushels per acre figures will not be available until a greater percentage of the acreage has been cut. The new 45-foot scale and dump is now in operation. Its 100,000- pound capacity and 32-foot rise make it possible to unload semi­ trailer grain hauling outfits quickly and easily, thereby speeding up the handling of incoming grain. The wheat is being loaded into barges, several of which are tied up at the local dock. READ THE WANT ADS! n CUSTOM Processing ond Butchering IUTCHIRINO 'HOGS AND RIIF 6 DAYS fVSRY WffK.

Held at Canton Senior High School parking lot, the demons stration was witnessed by some 80 persons. Daryl Wilson, an insurance agent, gave tips on safe driving and was assisted by two Canton police officers, and a representative of the state highway department. Wilson discussed the importance of safe driving and presented special information to assist drivers in maintaining good driving habits. Points are recorded at the highway department office after a person violates a traffic rule. A license can be revoked if a person's record shows 110 points or more during a period of one year, Wilson said. The actual safe driving demonstration was conducted by Leo Sharp of Canton, John Chatterton of Avon and Gene Coleman of Canton. Following the demonstration Don Stevens of Elmwood, club president, , conducted a business meeting. The local chapter's fair booth committee reported on its proposed exhibit at the Agricultural Educational Booth of the state fair. The committee will meet July 1 at the Farm Bureau building in Canton to map final plans. Hog Prices Hold Up During Week's Trade fty LEONARD M. WOODS (fcafesburg Order Buyers, Inc.) Meg numbers continue light artel under .the normal trade requirements for this time of year. Prices remain very good and after a sharp break on the close of last week have resumed their upward march.

Society Convenes NORTH HENDERSON — Mary and Martha Society of the Methodist Church met recently in the church basement. Mrs. George Speirer presided at the business meeting and led in devotionals. The afternoon was spent quilting and sewing rag rugs. 4-H Judging Teams to Vie By KEN FULLER (Knox County Assistant Farm Adviser) The 1963 Knox County livestock and dairy judging teams will travel to the University of Illinois Tuesday to compete in the state livestock and dairy judging contests in Urbana. The livestock judging team members are Larry Morris, Abingdon; Mike Hennenfent, Galesburg; Craig Sanford, DeLong; Stan Powers, St. Augustine; John Freberg, Galesburg, and Roger Bice, Victoria. The dairy judging team members are, John Thurman, Williamsfield; Elamc Jones, Yates City; Lee Fox, LaFayette; Teresa Reynolds. Oneida, and Don Burns and Peter Nelson, of Altona. The livestock team has held two judging workouts since the Knox County contest in May. The team traveled to Aledo to compete in the Mercer County 4-H judging contest, and traveled to Bradford to compete in the Stark County 4- H judging contest. The. dairy team has held one judging workout since the Knox County .ontest in June. The team traveled to Wyoming to compete in the Stark County 4-H dairy judging contest. The government has cut the spring pig crop estimate by 3 per cent whteh generally to. a bullish factor. Still hogs are comparatively high and probably since the advance came earlier than expected and prices went higher than expected we, can assume that the Enrolls in Summer School Donald Lee Rosinc, 879 Beecher Ave., has enrolled to the 49th annual summer school at Wheaton College for the first and second terms. First term begins June 22 and the second, July 20. Rosine Is studying education and Bible, Other courses include science, music, social science, physical education, speech and language, and graduate courses in Bible, theology, and Christian education. fall break in price* will came §*ffy in the summer and may be a little more Severn thari wis wftufd Mire to see. It would seem to be a good Wm to push late winter and early spring pigs and get thiffl to market as soon as possible. We mold not be too surprised to iH 8H early decline in the price of 1W to 210-pound hogs, while medium and heavyweight hogs, also packing sows could continue to show additional strength. We expect to have exceptionally good orders all summer. Farmers will find Galesburg a very favor* able market for all weights arid grades of hogs.
