PERISHO OgI<» County Farm Aui'imt OREGON —(Special)— Four-H members have had their shaie of attention during the past week, first with the 4-H officers training; school when the respective officers of the 4-H clubs received instruc tions on duties and lesponsibilmes of each of their clubs— this being conducted by Harriett Hutchmgs, home adviser, Everett Smiley, outh adviser and myself. _ Tnen as a cumax comment that ti to this w e e k, Sunday was National 4-H Sunday. Many of the clubs in the coun- Mm- % ty conductec 1%Ja7 entire chu m^^. service and tended chui ch in gioups. I heaid several ministers en- jojed giving an oppoitumty loi 4-H clubs to take ovei the services on that day. The Rev. George Swah e of tne Middle Cieek Chinch was ceitainlv pioud of the group of 4-H members that took over in his church and lightly he should be. From the comments afterwaic those membeis performed an oi standing job It seems that Jer Carlson could almost take the place of a mimstei without any additional training Many otheis also took part in tnat seivice Each showed that tneir naming in 4-H work has been impoitant to them. On Sunday night the county-wide 4-H church service was conducted by several 4-H federation members. Federation members that were responsible for this 4-H church sen ice were Svhia Thomas, Komaine Schoonhov en, Sharon Catev, Robert Kreger, Lois Gocken, Jim Swanson, Dave Johnson, Tom Currens, Dallas Huntlej , Bernard Empen and several others. The address was given by Oscar Bussenden, special assistant to the piesident of IAA, and he confirmed the value of 4-H work He stated that it was very seldom bovs and gills that weie active in w ork of this kind would be found as trouble-makers m their community About 100 paients, leaders and 4-H members attended this country-wide service at the Oregon Coliseum.

If vou would be interested in seeing any of these plots and ha\e further information on them, either contact your vocational agriculture teacher or myself and we will be glad to show you the plots and tell you of their importance to Ogle County. Sam Gocken of Holcomb recently commented on the thin egg shells that his chickens are producing. Alwajs during the summer time egg shells are thinner than at any other time. All poultn men hav e the same problem. But it \anes somewhat among flocks. Shells are thinnest when summer temperatures are the highest and hens lay egg! with thinner shells near the end of their production jear. A few of the things you can do to maintain the quality of youf eggs aie. (1) Provide plenty of oyster shells for your birds. Oyster shells may not prevent the summer egg shell problem, but they will keep it from getting worse. (2) Be sure nests are well filled with litter. (3) Spread eggs evenly in the baskets as you gather them and especially good advice is "don't put all your eggs m one basket." (4) The hotter the house, the thinner the shells Keep your chicken house as cool as possible and lastly, summer eggs are moie fragile so handle them as if you wer« afraid they might break. Supplements manufactured for egg production will cause very little variation m the egg shells You will have to depend upon these other methods for improving the quality of your eggs.
