U. S. Depaartment of
Agriculture is Interested
In Boys and Girls Work
Important innovations are planned
for tliis season in the educational ex-
tension work in agriculture and home
economies which Is being carried on
co-operatively under the terms of the
Smith-Lever Act by the U. S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture and the agricul-
tural colleges of the 15 southern states.
The various kinds of hoys’ and girls’
clubs organized throughout the coun-
try now include many members who
have mastered the elements of their
subjects, and more advanced work is
to he undertaken for their benefit this
In the born clubs, for example, boys
in some sections who have managed
successfully their acre of corn are
now to have an opportunity to learn
tlie management of larger areas—three
or four acres—In order to give them
insight into the principles of crop ro-
tation and the improvement of soil
through the growth of legumes. Ill
many other sections the smaller boys
till only one acre hut they use a rota-
tion of legumes and small grain as
well as corn. Of course different crops
are planted in different latitudes but
the general principles of soil improve-
ment an* tlie same in all cases. Profit-
aide ways of (lisiHistng of tlie produce
from tiie.se areas by feeding it to
hogs, baby beeves and other animals
are also to he emphasized.
.Similarly, girls who have done well
in canning tomatoes are now being
taught liow to handle specialties which
command bettor prices on tlie market
because they do not have to compete
with the output of commercial can-
neries. Second year girls divide thel*
gardens into two parts and grow two
Vegetables while third year girls
specialize on three. Particular ntten-
t Ion lms been paid in the South to tlie
rial Spanish i>ep|ier. For Hits there
is a good demand. particularly for
salad and as seasoning, and the
profits from canning it should be
greater than for tomatoes.

tively unfamiliar hint tlie first thing

aration so lliat they can i«iss on the

Considerable attention is also heiugl
given to the ehayote. a squash-like
vegetable which makes a particularly

tribute throughout the Southern States

In order to secure ttte proper snjier-
visiou of this work, It is planned to
add hi tlie' Southern States approxi-
mately 150 women county agents to
tlie1 450 or so now engaged in educa-
tional work for that section. These
women and h*aders do not limit tlicir
instruction to tlie members of thej
girls’ clubs, hut perform iu home
iiomlcs for the women of the count ry
much tlie same service that tlw-if mas
euline colleagues do in agricultural
proper for the farmers. Ex|iefionco
lias shown that success with the gltlsf
in their clubs cqierw the easiest road
to the confidence of flip mothers, and
adult women generally, mid of this fie t
full use is made.
There were 21,083 Women enrolled
in the South last year as volunteer
demonstrators - that; is to say, women
who undertook under tlie supervision,
of the agents of the government and
agrti-ultural colleges to demonstrate
for the licncfit. of their neighbors tlie
actual “working out in practice of the
measures advocated by the leaders. In
this field one of (tie most important
features is tlie devehqmient of farm
butter making. The ordinary run of
farm butter is, as is well known, such
a poor article that.il brings very little
money and there is, in consequence,
little incentive for the untrained wo-
man to devote much time to it. With
proper instruction and proper equip-
ment It is not difficult, however, for
a afrmer's wife to learn liow to manu-
facture a 11rod net which will bring on
the market, double wliat she has been
accustomed to getting. The effect of
this, of course. Is to stimulate the
keeping of cows ou the ordinary farm
—a result which Is desirable from ev-
ery point of view. Tills phnse of work
also creates a demand for screening
doors and windows atul also for the
installation of simple waterworks
systems. The agents find many oppor-
tunities, also, to make helpful sug-
gestions in regard to sanitation and
—Nnceess in this field, include*, how
ever, proper equipment. Butter pad
dies, molds, tUtTinonieters, "shotgun”
cans, barrel churns and workers have
eitlier-heen made or purchased in
large quantities under the guidance
of the women county ngents, and last
year 2,062 iceless refrigerators were
installed—a matter of great import-
ance in a section where Ice Is scarce
and the temperature high. Thousands
of girls and women haver done work
in bread milking. In these donumstra-

Throughout most of the South It is
possible to have all winter without Die

ily diet both from u hygienic and an

agents have given much ndvh-e and aid

hums and bacon make good lines of
Inane demonstration work.
When a county woman agent makes-

lines of work she is Invariably called
upon for advice and information along
other lines. Thus if Is (happening that
these agents are bring asked for the
best methods of arranging, improving
aud beautifying homes in their coun-
ties. They even have requests for ad-
vice in, regard to architecture of the
house itself. In fact tlie home dt-nv
