She then flew to Lisbon and to Rome, where she met two friends who were to travel with her. The three women flew to Belgrade, Yugoslavia, where Miss Newel had an experience which frightened her into thinking she might be arrested. While on a street alone she saw two tall, handsome soldiers walking In her direction. She raised her camera, thinking she might photograph them as fine examples of the well-built Yugoslav men. One of them smiled slightly as they passed. However, a moment later she felt a tap on her shoulder and turned toseepne of the soldiers, pointing at her camera and saying something she could not understand. Bystanders, who gathered quickly, told her he wanted to know If she had taken a picture. He asked for her passport, which was at her hotel. He then asked If she was with the United States Embassy, and she answered/'No." He repeated what he had asked first, "Did you take a picture?" As he spoke no English and she couldn't understand him, several people in the crowd interpreted all saying over and over, "Did you take a picture?" Finally, Miss Newel made them understand her answer, "You can't take a picture when people are moving." The crowd dispersed and she returned to her hotel and friends. The three women next visited cities in the Ukraine, the richest province In Russia. Kiev, the capital, was their first stop.

The purpose of this show is one of education in Kossuth county and this intent should be evident in the choice of exhibits and conduct of all exhibitors throughout the show. All articles must be the work of an active 4-H girl's club member, meeting county membership requirements and made since the 1964 county achievement show. A 4-H membership must be recorded in the county extension office by May 1 on a standard enrollment card. When the day arrives and all articles are finished and on display, a 4-H girl receives a certain satisfaction. Maybe the premium received is a red, white, or, if it is really good, a blue, but this is only "a frosting on the cake." Since home furnishings is the main project this year, the majority of the entries will be of this type. Each club is limited to a specified number of articles in each class. In the age division 10-11, there are 13 projects that may be exhibited; in the age division 12-13, there are nine projects that may be exhibited; and in the age division 14 and above there are five projects that may be exhibited. State Fair entries are chosen from entries of girls 12 and above. There are nine double entries in this class. Food and nutrition and clothing projects are also going to be exhibited at the local achievement shows. The number of entries per club will be determined by the number of project members each club has enrolled. The boys do not have a local achievement show, but their club tours are almost the same thing, Getting their projects ready is also a big task. If they have beef, you would probably find them leading their calf around the yard; if they have pigs, they are probably grooming tfteip so the pigs' coat is slick. Algona (la.)
