When boys and girls club work first started in the early
1900 s. the emblem was a 3 H clover symbolizing Head. Heart,
Hands. Around 1911 the 4th H was added to represent Health.
Ever since, both here and in about 75 other countries, this
emblem has represented the equal training of "head, heart,
hands and health for better living."

Health projects have grown over the years in knowledge, ac-
tivities and membership, says the Cooperative Extension Service
which supervises 4H programs. And keeping fit is one impor
tant segment of the national 4-H Health program which today
enrolls some 677,000 boys and girls.
It is easy to keep in good shape during summer months
through sports, games, hikes, camping and outdoor work. But,
cautions the 4-H Health bulletin, there is more to maintaining
food health than strenuous exercise.
This recent publication points out the need for three nutri
tious meals a day, plenty of sleep, periodic physical checkups
and a sensible balance of work and play. It also urges 4-H Club
members to look for ways to improve family and community
Individual members and clubs can win awards for doing an
•ntatanding job. Winners are selected by the Extension Service.
Award donor and sponsor of the 4-H Health program for the
list 10 years is Eli Lilly and Company.
The boy or girl judged best in the state will be a delegate
lo the National 4-H Club Congress at Chicago next fall, and will
compete for one of six $500 scholarships. In the county, the
best four club projects will be recognized with a certificate and
medals will be presented to as many as four top individuals.
TRL observes: "An $80 million
tax bill is no small matter, but
neither is it a really serious crisis
for a state with the untapped tax
resources and growth potential of
Texas. This is, of course, an op-
timistic — as well as an unoffi-
cial — estimate and the tax re-
quired might well be higher if
revenues do not come up to thes.
expectations, or if < xpendituros
substantially exceed them."
League suggests that the Com-
mittee on State and Local Tax
Policy "look at many available
revenue-raising possibilities in the
course of its studies "
