By Q. H. Jenkins
Assistant County Agent
It is said by those who are in
charge of the work at Washington,
D. C., that the boys and girls of
Oregon who are doing 4-H club work
are doing a class of work unequalled
by club members in any other state.
This does not mean that the club
members In other states are not do­
ing a fine work but that In Oregon
some very fine achievements have
won which put the work in this state
la the foreground.
a part of the national agricultural ex­
tension system. Through It, rural
boys and girls, in school and out of
school are taught better agriculture
and home economics practices and
the more significant things of rural
life. It builds men and women.
4H club boys and girls are demon­
strators, they learn and teach better
ways on the farm, in the home and
in the community. They earn more
money, acquire property, do the
wholesome and helpful things and
become leaders. Club workers learn
to work together, play together, co­
operate, achieve, and to play the
game fairly, they build up their bodd-
ies and their health through right
living and train their hands to ho
useful and their minds to clear
Larger Enrollment Sought
There are about 11,000,000 rural
boys and girls 10 to 18 years of age
In the United States. There are
now enrolled in 4H club work about
600,000 rural boys and girls, or about
one out of 18. The aim is to de­
velop the work that every boy or
girl who reaches maturity and takes
up farm life shall have had the op­

For several years moat of the
club work done in Umatilla county
has been done in this section. This
will not be tl^e case any longer
.however, as other sections of the
county have already started with
boys’ and girls' club activity.
We must, in order to hold the re­
cords we have made in the past

of achievement have been seen in
boys and girls in local clubs. Some
of these boys and girls have reached
the age limit for club work and are
showing their wares In differet
walks. Others must take the plac
of those who. have graduated and the
boys and gils are here to take it.
Mrny Are Interested
Many examples could be cited in
this section of the kind of local lea­
derships which alway accompanies
100 per cent club work. Leaders
have already stated their willingness
to help in the capacity for this
year. At a club program meeting
held in the Hermiston high school
building on February 3 where club
pictures and talks by local people
made up the program, thirty-three
boys and girls signified their inten­
tion of enrolling in club work this
cl«b preference. This is a fine
showing for the first meeting. Many
boys and girls have stated their in­
tentions to enroll in the Boardman,
Irrigon and Stanfield districts also.
If you are interested in club work
and want to know more about it.
talk to some boy or girl who hag
been enrolled in the work, or phone
or call on Mr. E. L. Jackson, local
club leader, or the assistant county
agent at Hermiston,

the banner year in the 4H club
