4-H Summer School
Work Described
Our trip to the 4-H summer school
started June 7. Ellwynne Peck,
Billy Biddle and myself making the
trip with County Agent Joe Bel
anger to Arlington where we board
ed the 4-H club special train. We
arrived at Corvallis about 5 o'clock
Monday evening.
We were met at the train by Ho
mer Cherry, overseer at Beta Kappa
fraternity house, where I checked in
and dressed for dinner. Twenty
eight clubbers were enrolled here.
Othr members from Morrow county
were registered at other fraternity
and sorority houses about the cam
pus. Tuesday morning all boys met on
the football field and were divided
into eight sections according to their
ages. Each section constituted a
class for instruction, divided into
four periods of an hour each dur
ing the morning. After lunch an
hour was spent in rest or recreation.
At 2 o'clock we assembled at the
men's gym for general assembly. A
program was arranged of club songs.
Speakers of note were introduced
and spoke to us each day. After as
sembly athletics were enjoyed. Each
fraternity group chose a baseball
and volleyball captain, who picked
a team. Inter-fratemity games of
baseball and volleyball were played
from 3:30 to 4:30 each day. Swim
ming was enjoyed at the natatorium
from 4:30 to 5:30 by many members.
From 5:30 to 6:15 we made ready for
dinner. At 8 o'clock different county
groups gathered at radio . station
KOAC and broadcast a few words.
Other groups attended evening as
sembly where we enjoyed radio
plays, wild life pictures and talkies.
Two dances were held at the Wo
men's building. Throughout the two
weeks club members of fraternity
houses exchanged dinners with club
members of sorority houses. Sun
day an excursion Was made to the
ocean at Seaside by many of the
My daily classes consisted of two
general topics, livestock and plants.
Livestock consisted in judging cat
tle, horses, sheep and hogs, bringing
out the desirable and undesirable
points of each.
Under plants was the selection of
seeds. Four samples of seed were to
be arranged in order according to
purity, uniformity of size, foul ma
terial, and off color. Other topics of
interest were handling of seed to
best advantage, the grading of seeds,
methods of planting, and selection of
varieties for various crops, etc.
There were more than 1700 club
bers at the summer school, 161 of
which scholarships were, like my
own, grange sponsored.
Raymond H. Turner, manager of
Lexington Oil Co-op, was transacting
business in the city Tuesday, report
ing fanners in his section feeling
mighty good over the abundant
showers of the last two weeks.
