From the foregoing it is seen that if the people of this county will put up $2000 the Federal government and state will put in $1500, or in the ratio of $3 for every $4 raised up to $2000. Exposition planned. It would not be possible to organize clubs in All the communities of the county this year so that All the boys and girls could be included. Because of this fact it is Felt that in some Way the work should be planned so that every boy and girl under 19 years of age should have an Opportunity to work upon a project and take part in this club work even though there Are no organized clubs in Many communities. So plans Are being made for a county exposition this next fall at which the boys and girls can bring their exhibits and compete for Liberal prizes. All kinds of Garden products canned goods Needle work handicrafts live Stock and crops will be exhibited at that time. No boy or mrs May exhibit anything but what they own and had the care of during the sum the Premium list is being pre pared and will be issued within Short time.
