The best way to insure the conser

The home economics extension
program from July 1941 to July 1942
was planned on Tuesday, May 13,
when representatives from 17 exten
sion units and eigth study clube met
to decide on the program o f work.
Mrs. Azalea Sager state home demon

discussing new developments in the
state and national program of work.
Mrs C. J. Humphrey chairman o f the
county committee presided during the
meeting and discussed how the sug
