School Industrial Clubs
Making Great Progress
S alem —Although the work of o r
ganizing industrial clubs in the public
schools has been in progress only a
short tim e, S ta te Superintendent of
Public Instruction Churchill announces
th a t the results are fa r b e tte r than
had been expected. He said th a t 4363
pupils had been enrolled by clubs and
th a t applications for m em bership were
being received a t a rate o f 150 a day.
T here are 10 subjects in which the
school children may compete for p riz
es, the names and the num ber o f pu
pils enrolled in each being as follow s:
C anning and preserving, 274; cook
ing and baking, 663; dairy herd rec
ord, 36; corn raising, 383; manual
a rts, 216; pig raising, 151; potatoes,
296; poultry, 472; sewing, 1045; veg
etable gardening, 777; total, 4363.
“ W hen we stop to th in k ,” said Mr.
C hurchill, “ th a t most o f our school
g irls will be housekeepers in a few
years, and h a lf our boys will be farm
ers, the value of this industrial work
can readily be a p p rec ia ted .”
The re p o rt was made to Mr. Chur
chill by Professor Griffin, of the Ore
gon A gricultural college, who is co
o p e ratin g w ith the sta te departm ent
of education in this work.

The constitution provides th a t the

ation a t once, the industry to be de
veloped by sending sam ples o f fresh
and dried berries to all p a rts of the
country and the preparation of ade
q u ate s ta tistic s for the inform ation of

of acreage devoted to the fru it this
year, it was feared th a t it m ight be

A rrangem ents have been m ade to sell
