State Fair Provides for Farm Boys and Girls
For a good many years the State Fair of Texas, at Dal-
las, has given encouragement to the farm boys and girls to
attend its annual events. It has given space for the exhibits
the young farmers and homemakers brought to the Fair and
offered prizes for those who excelled. The greatesf draw-
back for these boys and girls has been that there was no con-
venient and inexpensive place for them to stay while in Dal-
laa. Hon. Otto Herold, President of the State Far of Texas,
in a message last week announced that it had been decided
to convert the fine, spacious building which was used as the
Administration Building during the Centennial into dormi-
tory headquarters for Texas farm boys and giris in the fu-
ture. This building is located just inside the entrance gates,
and the spaciousness and convenience as well as its imposing
appearance will cause every boy and girl engaged in work on
the farm to appreciate their new State Fair Home and feel
that the people generally are becoming acquainted with the
nature and importance of the work they and their instructors
are doing. The State Board of Education of Texas is the se-
lected agency of the State and Federal Government to handle
Future Farmers of America and The Homemakers and
Industries, and through it the salaries of teachers and
supervisors are fixed and audited, as well as the cripple Chil-
dren rehabilitation work. The Federal Government appropri-
ates a large sum of money for all this work and it is matched
by the State Government. The home ecnomic and vocational
agriculture departments of our schools in Caldwell and Bur-
leson county are beneficiaries of this money. Mr. Mcllroy,
vocational agriculture instructor, is doing a fine piece of work
here. Few know that A. & M. College students are doing
practice teaching in the Caldwell high school. This is quite an
honor for Mr. Mcllroy and our school board.
Did You, Reader, Know This?
(THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS)
That there are more than a million members of the 4-H
Clubs in the United States, Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico?
That these youngsters have for their object "to make the
best better?" and to grow in wisdom, and stature, and in fa-
vor with God and man?" and that they already have succeed-
ed in this most commendable ambition to the extent hat ex-
perts in sociology have pronounced their organizations "one
of the most potent influences for good in the Nation ?"
If you really want to be enlightened on this important
matter, and it is a very important one, write to any of the A.
6 M. Colleges and ask that information as to 4-H Club boys
and girls and Future Farmers of America organizations be
sent you—what they have done, what they are doing and
what they hope to do. And they are of a kind who usually suc-
ceed in what they undertake.
Here is the 4-H motto, which accounts for the name of
their organization: "I pledge
My HEAD to clearer thinking.
My HEART to greater loyalty.
My HANDS to larger service.
€ly HEALTH to better living for my Club, my Commu-
nity, and my Country.
As said by S. S. Prentiss of the motto of Virginia, it is
MAs lofty a motto as ever blazed on a warrior's shield or a
Nation's arms." _____
