r WITH KOSSUtH COUNtY'S LARGEST NEWSPAPER CIRCULATION ALGONA, IOWA, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 1965 VOL. 100 - NO. National 4-H Week Is Now Being Observed In County It's big I That's one way to describe 4-H. Twenty-two million Americans are former 4-H club members. More than 2 1/3 million youngsters are enrolled now. But the real measure of 4-H is in the job it does for youth. Any boy or girl between 10 and 19 years of age may Join a 4-H club by agreeing to work on a project and follow 4-H ideals and standards. The main requirement is a willingness to learn by doing, and "to make the best better" - the club motto. These groups of young people carry on a wide variety of projects in agriculture, home economics, citizenship, personal development, community service, engineering, science, recreation, health and leadership. They apply the latest scientific findings to learn the "why" as' well as the "how" of what they do. Developing character and good citizenship are long-range goals. The 4-H club program is part of the nationwide educational system of the Cooperative Extension Service - a three-way partnership of the U. S. Department of Agriculture, the State land-grant colleges or . universities and county governments. But the local 4-H club is the most important unit of the program. Local people determine its policies. Friends of the 4-H give valuable aid and encouragement. To guide 4-H'ers, some 400,000 public spirited men and women - many of them parents who are former 4-H'ers themselves - serve as volunteer local leaders. These leaders are trained, counseled, and assisted by their county extension agents, who have at their fingertips the vast stores of knowledge of the State land-grant colleges and the U. S. Department of Agriculture. Adult leaders advise and encourage 4-H'ers In planning and carrying out projects. They teach them new subject matter, attend club meetings, and most important, have a genuine interest in boys and girls. The Extension Staff of Kossuth County would like to Invite YOU as an eligible youngster or YOU as the parent of an eligible youngster to consider membership in a 4-H club. There are 45 different clubs in the county and each one would welcome any and every new member. To The 17th ANNUAL GUESTS OF MRS.
