In this project, 4-H members learn skills in efficient raising of rabbits as well as knowledge of the BIGGER we get the easier we DEAL This has been one of those years. Great. Buickwise, we mean. And no wonder. The 1965 crop of Buicks are all beautiful. They ride well, handle well. Buick engineers, you see, have a way of doing things that please people. So what's this ad for? To brag about Buicks? No, sir. Wouldn't you really rather go first class? Go Buick! We have something that'll interest you more. It's called how to get yourself a Buick the easy way. Because we've had such a great sales year, we can make it easy. The easier we make it, the closer we'll come to breaking our all-time Buick sales record. This goes for any Buick: Riviera, Electra 225, Wildcat, LeSabre, Skylark or Special. You name it — we'll deal. It all adds up to this: If you'd really rather go first class,' go Buick. We'll make it worth your while. There's an authorized Buick dealer near you. See his VjBrDouble-Checked used cars, too.

In addition, 4- H'ers will have the responsibility and enjoyment of working with a live animal project. Each member must own two or more does and plan to raise at least three litters a year.

Watch for the rabbits in classes of a commercial meat pen or best breeding buck or doe. Home grounds or farmstead improvement as a 4-H project is designed to show members the proper methods of developing a desirable landscape for home property. It will provide experiences and the satisfaction of planning and carrying out plans for a practical home for farmstead landscape. It will also enable 4-H'ers to know how and what to plan for when they are creating their own home. To begin this project, members must make a list of what a family would need on their home grounds or farmstead. Next, he must plan and decide what structures and plants go together and tell why. After he has completed these steps he is ready to start on the project proper. To do this he will record the existing conditions of a home grounds or farmstead by drawing a scale map. When he has finished his scale drawing, he will plan the changes that could be made to a home grounds or farmstead. Now he must make an attempt to carry out the improvement plans as much as possible with the aid of a parent arid record the progress,. To finish the project, the member must complete the project record booklet. Home grounds or farmstead improvement record booklets will be on display at the Kossuth County Fair, along with a poster mounted with pictures of the home grounds before and after the improvements, MUSHROOM Ed Hoist of Independence found a freak mushroom last month growing along a road. The "shaggy mane" mushroom cap and stem measured 171/2 inches high. Normally this type grows to about 2 to 4 inches high. Members of the Apostolic Christian Church of West Bend are watching a dream come true. The 75 family congregation with members from Algona, Humboldt, Ottosen, Rodman, West Bend and Whittemore is eagerly awaiting the completion of a new church (pictured). Some time ago, members of the church realized the need for additional facilities. The old church, located one mile east of West'Bend, in Garfield twp. of Kossuth County, held only 200 during services, and Sunday school classrooms were limited. Last fall, a nine-man board was chosen to select plans for construction of a new and larger church. Members of the board Elmer Fehr (chairman), Ray Anliker, Alvin Banwart, Levi Banwart, Walter Banwart, George Bruellman, Joe Beninger, Arnold Metzgar and George Sauder decided on a building plan which will serve up to 450 during services with additional space for a nursery, lounge, kitchen, dining area, and several classrooms. The building is 168 x 128 feet in size. The main entrance will be on the east and another entrance, on the south, provides easy access to the largest portion of the church, the Fellowship Hall. The hall measures 26 x 48 feet and will have a balcony which will seat 100. Construction began last fall and should be completed sometime between Christmas and spring. Church members carried on two fund-raising projects to help meet construction costs. Last fall, after a bad storm had knocked hundreds of bushels of corn to the ground, over 100 ambitious children in the congregation and several equally- energetic adults cooperated to clear eight fields of fallen corn in two days. The children took advantage of no-school during parent-teacher conferences in West Bend schools to salvage corn in fields farmed by Walter Banwart, Eugene Bruellman, Roger Fehr, Harold Fischer, and Alvin Banwart. Ladies of the church also sold doughnuts during Eli Bruellman's farm sale, and profits were placed in the building fund. Upon completion of the new church, services should become even more pleasant than they are at present. Services will be held as usual on Sunday at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. with a light lunch of coffee and doughnuts at noon for those who wish to attend both services. Four ministers share in handling the services. They are Paul Banwart, Earl Banwart, Alfred Fehr, and Noah Gerber. The Apostolic Christian Church of West Bend has the distinction of being one of only five in the state of Iowa. Others are located at Elgin, Lester, Oakville and Pulaski. In eight or nine months, when members of the Garfield township church see their visions of a new church fulfilled, they will hold the further distinction of being the newest of the five.
