MANY TO ATTEND
4-H CLUB SCHOOL
Reservations for O. S. C. Junior
Summer Session Normal; Big
Program Is Planned.
With reservations for the annual
4-H club summer session already
in from 33 of the 36 Oregon coun
ties, a high attendance, approxi
mately that of a year ago when 725
enrolled, is assured for the two-
weeks period on the Oregon State
college campus. The dates this
year will be June 13 to 25 which is
one week later than last year, over
lapping the regular adult summer
session by one week.
Estimates of attendance at first
were somewhat under last year but
later reports from the counties in
dicate that some are sending more
than a year ago which will appar
ently balance the reduced delega
tions from other counties, accord
ing to H. C. Seymour, state club
leader. Last year there were 725
actual club members present in ad
dition to some 75 leaders who as
sisted in the school.
In line with the general lowered
costs, patlcularly of food, the
charge for board and room for the
two weeks period this year has
been reduced from 15 to $13. The
girls will reside in Waldo and Kid
der halls, as usual, and the boys
will live in the men's dormitory.
The program calls for about four
hours of classroom and field In
struction each day except Sunday,
but varied so as to meet all Inter
ests and avoid monotony. Physi
cal recreation is always a promin
ent feature of the session with in
door and outdoor sports carried out
under expert supervision.
Assembly programs will again be
important features of the club ses
sions with prominent officials and
business men scheduled for each

day, affording club members an op
portunity to come in touch with
people in important places of lead
ership. Applications for admission to the
session need to be in by June 1 to
be sure of being acted upon. Those
who have not won trips through
their work at county or state fairs
or other awards and who now seek
admission are advised to make ar
rangements through the person in
their county in charge of directing
