Guest Day Held
Calf Club Projeci
A successful 4-H Calf club pro­
ject was carried this year by
the Beaver Creek calf club, un-
der the leadership of Mrs. Irma
Chance, teacher in the Beaver
Creek school district. The six
members, Victor Jablonski, Wil­
liam Reymonds, George Holt,
Ambrose Schmidlin, Charles Holt,
and Jack McDonald, all filed re­
ports in the county agent’s of­
fice.
This club took as its project,
either the raising of a calf or
yearling, which is owned and
cared for by the club member. A
financial record is kept of the
cost of feeds and other items of
expense, and receipts, either in
the value of the animal or other
returns from it.
These boys are to be congratu­
lated on the splendid work they
did this year in their 4-H calf
club project, states Geo. A. Nel­
son, county agent. They carried
through to completion the first
successful calf club in this com­
munity. He is looking forward to
have them continue the work
next year and for other boys to
join.
