RODNEY JENSEN Hodney Jensen, Lone Rock, recently recieved a Chicago Award trip through his work in 4-H, and was asked to write his impressions of the "Windy City". They appear here: A very educational and profitable experience was given to me when I attended the Grain Marketing Conference in Chicago. I feel that it will be very helpful to me in the future, since I have enrolled at Iowa State University in the field of agronomy for next year and am planning on farming as a career. It was all a very thrilling experience from the time I found out I had been selected as a delegate till this very moment when I think back about the trip and all the educational opportunities that were placed at my disposal. The Chicago Board or Trade, our hosts, were very generous to us and went all out to make sure that we enjoyed ourselves. In our lecture sessions we were given the basic principles and uses of the market. From these I came to the belief that the market performs a difficult task, but a function which is important to growers, handlers, processors and others alike. One lecture inspired me to find out more so we can use it to an advantage in the marketing of our farm products. Among some of the most memorable experiences was the banquet which was held in our honor the first night we were in Chicago and at which some Chicago 4-H girls were special guests. Vie^gng the opening of a day's trading at the Chicago Board of Trade was also very memorable because of a very active soybean market. Our tour of the General Mills plant in South Chicago was also very interesting. At General Mills we watched the preparation of several types of cereals and cake mixes and believe it or not, some cereals are really shot from guns. Another of my notable experiences was a guided tour of the trading floor while the actual trading was in progress. In an effort to help us understand the method that the traders used to buy and sell the commodities, some members of the Board of Trade demonstrated the way they would first receive an order to buy or sell and then the use of hand signals to determine the price of it. The actual trading and the recording of the trade was done in such a short time that it was hard to believe. This only .proves how efficient and effective the role of the Chicago Board of Trade is in pro- ECONOMICAL - HEALTHFUL - NUTRITIOUS And Be SURE They're From CO OP CRtAM£RIK i^acfuA-tM of 'JaACif Q/UOJKiAy &**/?< 1 ONE COCK WA ••_, «,*( A Ci!
