4-H Shows Billed
On Reduced Scale
As Fairs Dropped
Plans for exhibiting 4-H club pro
ducts despite the cancellation of the
state fair, the Pacific International
and many of the county fairs have
been virtually completed, assuring
that efforts of some 25,000 young
sters will not go unrewarded so far
as competitive prizes are concerned,
announces H. C. Seymour, state club
leader in the Oregon State college
Here is about the way the line-up
looks: In the counties such as Mult
nomah where county fairs will be
held, the 4-H club exhibits will be
included as usual. In counties where
no county fair is being held this
year the 4-H clubs will hold com
munity exhibits in centers conven
ient to the most members. From the
top exhibits in these community
shows, county winners will be pick
ed by extension workers or other
judges in classifications where coun
ty winners are important.
Members of livestock clubs pro
ducing fat stock, including those in
beef, lamb and pig projects, will
take their fat stock as usual to the
Salem fair grounds on September 9.
The animals will be judged the next
day and sold at auction September
11. It is pointed out that this will
involve no extra transportation as
the fat stock must be marketed any
way. No breeding stock will be
Meanwhile the winning county
exhibits in home economics and sim
ilar projects will be sent to Salem
for judging but will not be accom
panied by the 4-H club members.
The only members going to Salem
will be those in fat stock projects.
Arrangements have also been ten
tatively made for those 4-H club
members from this and other states
who normally send fat stock to the
Pacific International. Arrangements
are being made to handle such stock
at the Union Stockyards under a
plan somewhat similar to that pro
vided at Salem.
Best demonstration teams will be
selected in each county by the
workers there, with scores senc in to
the state office. State judges will
then visit the counties which appar
ently have the best teams and will
select state winners in those fields
such as dairy production and dairy
food demonstrations where national
competition is provided.
"We may have to give and take a
bit under this arrangement because
obviously the selections cannot be
accurate in all cases as under nor
mal procedure," said Seymour. "We
intend to do the best we can, how
ever, and believe that the results
will be satisfactory in view of the
wartime difficulties involved."

Leo G. Spitzbart, Oregon state fair

is liaison officer for public gather
ings in Oregon.
