In every Iowa community active solicitation of members will begin next week by the state's entire club organization, operating under the slogan "Forward with 4-H." To reach the 1949 goal the clubs will have to add 6,000 members to this year's figure. Preliminary estimates for this year show a membership of 39.000. In addition enough new members must be obtained to make up for the normal loss through moving away, reaching age limits and other membership shrinkage, P. C. Taff, assistant director of the Agricultural Extension Service at Iowa State College, points out. Who's Eligible Club membership is open to any girl or boy between 10 and 21 years of age. Each youth joining a club is required to carry an approved home economics or agricultural project, to keep records of the project, to attend meetings of a local club and to take part in all activities of the organization. No membership due is charged in the 4 -H organization. The program is a part of the federal-state cooperative extension program. On the county level the program is supervised by the county extension offices. Employed personnel in these offices work with coun- WEDNESDAY, OCTOte. ^, ty 4-H committees of men and women to plan the 4-H activities. Local clubs are organized In most Iowa communities. These clubs have a membership ranging from five up to as many as 35 or more. Each club has one or more volunteer lenders who work with the members and guide them in their activities. Leaders,'Project These lenders attend training schools conducted by county and state extension workers where they receive suggestions for project work and other activities. The leaders then pass this information on to the members. Separate clubs are organized for girls and boys. Girls' projects relate to clothing, home furnishings, or food and nutrition. One project is carried each year in a county. The program rotates on a three-year cycle. Boys have a variety of agricultural projects from which to choose. Herald Want Ads bring results.
