VENiNG TELEGRAPH Comic SpdfiJ CMistfted ALTON, ILL., FRIDAY, AUGUST 16, 1963 7c Per Copy Member of The Assdclated Press, 4-H'ers at State Fair Learn How It's Done Specialists Guide Work / Of Young By GEORGE LBlGlttV felogfnpli Stuff Writer SPR1NOFLELD - The Heed of food, clothing and shelter thai, are a spot above raw meat, n buffalo hide and a cave form the basis of all 4-H Club activities at Illinois Stale Fair. In the junior department, which takes up a large chunk of the real fair, far away from t h c grandstand and the horse fanciers, the casual onlooker can learn how to decorate a room quite neatly and without great, expenditure of cash, can watch a demonstration of how to make a winter coat or how to 'whomp up a platter of hoi rolls. "The whole thing revolves around making home life belter," Miss Delorcs Parrott, one-time Greene County home adviser and now a 4-H Club specialist at University of Illinois, said. To this end, hundreds of 4-H Clubbers annually trek to the state fair, where they are lodged In dormitories, burracks-s t y 1 e, to show their wares and to attend special classes and demonstrations over which specialists preside. Home. Improvement Wednesday Karen Wright and Rosemary Lemons, both of Greene County, were busily engaged in creating flower arrangements under direction of John Culbert, a specialisl In flower arrangement from the University of Illinois. This was not a contest, but an academic .process and Culbert came up with a critique of the arrangements. An even 100 girls look part in this process the same day. "This is stressed because it is a way anyone can express himself in an art form," Miss Parrott said. While this was under way, in another section, a hundred or so girls were gelling the low-down on how lo whomp up a coffee cake or some other form of pastry. Katliy Melvin of Greenfield and Pat Mclnlyre of Carlinville were among the 4-H members in this group and during a stagewait a half-dozen visiting farm youth ex- changees from other countries were being Introduced. The stage- wait, it appeared, resulted from the reluctance of some cooking oil to attain the proper temperature for the frying of sonic Swedish pastry. Lalcr one of the foreign visitors, Kamala dc Silva of Ceylon, posed for a picture with Hie Misses Mclnlyre and Melvin. Tim Clothing Section Janell Hays, a Macoupin County 4-H'er, turned up among 50 or so girls in another seclion busily engaged in examining Ihe con- slruciion of clothing. The clothing was being modeled by oilier 4-H members and every stitch was handmade at home. A professional clothier would be in a position to more accurately evaluate these garments in contrast to the ready-mades, but to our un- prucliccd eye, they seemed to fit perfectly and were the latest word in styling, Not all of the background activities, of course, revolved around what is called the "Junior show." In the huge horse bt\rn an Alton Evening Telegraph carrier, Edward Harbaugli of Greenfield, a senior at Greenfield High, was encamped with four Shetland ponies from Ponyland at Greenfield. Bill Seekamp, owner of Ponyland, asked Harbaugli if he'd like the job of looking after the ponies, Harbaugli said, "so I took it.' This, Harbaugh said, left his sister, Wanda, 13, at home as temporary Telegraph carrier. Services Set for Father Dismas Clurk ST.
