Industrial Clubs Give Vent
To Pent up Energy of Oregon 's
Pace-Setting Boys and Girls
XDUSTRIAL clubs for the girls
and boys of Oregon, organized this
spring, have shot to hit in aiding
the children to win the $2,500 in
prizes offered them in contests at
the coming local and state fairs.
Applying the touchstone of utility to
education, industrial work" throughout
the Btate has recently been greatly en
couraged. In the spring of 1S13, the
Oregon legislature appropriated the
sum of (6,000 to be paid each year out
of the general fund of the state to pay
the salary and traveling expenses of
two assistants, whose duty it is to trav
el throughout the counties of the state
and supervise and promote the develop
ment of industrial work in the public
schools, including such subjects as ag
riculture, manual training and home
economics, and promote industrial
school fairs and school garden coo
tests, under the direction of the state
superintendent of public instruction and
in co-operation with the state agricul
tural college The Lever bill consider
ing further appropriations will be up
before the next legislature. Interested
iu the industrial realities about them,
public school students are pursuing
practical ideals. Having a knowledge
of the vocations they must follow in
later years they are assuming a differ
ent attitudo toward the "bread-and-butter"
side of life.
Age Limit Only Requirement.
Strengthening the work which has
liet'u started by the introduction of do
mestic science and manual traiuing in
the public schools, the boys and girls
were invited this year to organize in
dustrial clubs under the O. A. C. ex
tension service, of which B. I). Hetzel
is the director. Any boy or girl in
Oregon who is between the ages of 10

and 13, inclusive, is entitled to member-1
ship in any industrial club and may un
dertake the approved club projects, the;
particular kind of work chosen by the'
member. I
Superintendent J. A. Churchill saysi !
"Such organization will furnish an op-i
portunity for social meetings, and for
entertainments of various kinds, that
will be of value to the community. j
"I believe the pian furnishos an
opportunity for strengthening the bonds
that unite home and school. ' I
Since the beginuing of the industrial
clubs, hundreds of members have writ
ten to the state and county superinten
dents of their memberships and meet
ings. Iu turn personal letters and leaf
lets, containing the best scientific in
struction and prepared in simple style,
were sent to all the boys and girls in
terested, and will continue to be se,nt
at frequent intervals. The bulletins
of the Oregon Agricultural college are
sent free to all residents of Oregon who
request them. The extension division
of the Oregon Agricultural college,
through the state agent for boys' and
girls' club work, co-operating with the
state superintendent GJC public instruc
tion, furnishes the necessary instruc
tions and information for carrying on
the club work thoroughout the state.
Some Suggestions.

work, enrollment Dlanks, club constitu-

tions, rid other material were placed
in tne hands of the club leaders to as
sist them in organizing their clubs and
getting the work started. A series of
circulars, covering every phase of the
various elub projects were sent to club
leaders and members. These circulars
are designed to sustain the interest of
the club members and to enable the su
pervisors and leaders to utilize the edu
cational possibilities of the movement
to the fullest extent.
In a pamphlet issued by F. L. Grif-I
fin, state agent in charge of industrial
clubs, the possibilities of these home :
club nri made plain Among the
things a club can do are: j
1. Develop a more Intensive and
profitable system of agriculture by en
couraging the nse of scientific and
business principles in the rearing of
animals, culture of plants, and utiliza
tion of plant and animal products.
2. Materialize and render permanent
the educational ideals now expressed in
the industrial fair movement.
3. Offer a medium through which in
spiration, information, and vocational
direction can be given to the boy and
girl in the country.
4. Adapt boys and girls to their ea
vironment, and develop within them
self-expression and initiative.
5. Create higher ideals of country
life by showing that health, wealth and
happiness are the heritage of every
country boy and girl
6. Assist the teacher in the public
school to find an easy approach, edu
cationally, to all the interests of coun
try and community life. The club ac
tivities become the connecting link be
tween home and school, and will assist
materially iu transforming the school
into a real community center.
7. Bring the people, old aud young,
socially together. The co-operative at
mosphere engendered by such meetings
awakens in adults higher ideals of life,
and develops within boys and girls a
realization of their own powers and

Dear to the heart of every boy and
girl is his or her own pet hobby. If a
pupil in any school desires to undertake
some line of work not included among
the projects of the local school con

Recently County Superintendent Wal
ter M. Smith and Field Worker N. C.
Maris visited the gardens of the chil
dren of Marion county. Following is
a letter telling of that trip:
I hope you are ail having a good
time and enjoying your vacation, work
ing some, playing some and reading
some. I hope you are not wasting any
of your time in idleness. We do not
consider playing idleness, but if yon
play all the time you really get tired of
playing and then it does become a
waste of time.
There are' one hundred industrial
clubs in this county and probably over
fivy hundred boys and girls belonging
to them.' . If each one of these elub
members wastes, tay one hour a day,
just think what a waste of time it is;
five hundred hours or mora which
might have beea used for some good
purpose, and that is one of the funda
mental objects of our club work. To
assist the boys and girls in learning to
economize in every way, to economize
in time and effort and to learn to be
systematic in everything. There Is a
great deal in that word system. No
person and no business can long suc
ceed without system. You boys and
girls are forming habits now that will
stay with you all through life, and
above all things, you should learn to
be systematic.
This week Supt, Smith and I have
been spending some time visiting some
of the club members at their homes,
getting photographs of their gardens
and other club work and information
that will Jbe of value In planning the
work for the future. We would like to
visit every club member, but this is

Supt. Smith has arranged to give an
achievement pin to each club member
who continues the work of their
jeet during the season and exhibit some
of the same at the fair, regardless of
whether they win a prize or not. Now
it means a great deal to win und wear
one of these achievement pins. It is
a real honor badge which shows that
you are not a quitter and that you
have material in you to perservere and
stay with your work to the end.
It does not always happen that the
boy who has the best garden or the
girl who wins in bread baking, sewing
or canninng fruit has gotten the most
good out of it. Others may have
worked under greater difficulties, per
haps with poor soil or less instruction
or less encouragement, but in spite of
these facts have worked hard and uone
their very best and will have an ex
perience that will be of everlasting and
estimable value to them.
Last year Marion County won second
prize on the collective county exhibit.
Supt. Smith is ambitious to win the
first prize this year and I am sure that
you all want to help him to do that.
In fact it is up to you whether you do
or not. The boys and girls must
furnish the exhibits. You would not
! think much of your superintendent if
he did not take interest enough to
want to win in this contest. It is a
good thing for boys and girls to culti

Two weeks ago the Capital Journal
told its boy and girl readers, especially
in Marion county, about the industrial
fair to be held in the Salem armory
September 25, 1914. Throughout the
state, similar county fairs will be hold.
This year many of the extension course
members will send their exhibitions to
the Oregon state fair, which will be
held September 28 to October 3. Entry
blanks will be sent upon application
to the secretary, Oregon state fair, Sa
lem, Oregon.
Entries Are All Free.
There will be no fee charged at the
state fair for entering exhibits in these
contests. The fair officials will also
give to each boy or girl who enters an

- The experience of Motherhood Is a try

tinctly an epoch in their live. Not on
woman in a hundred ia prepared or on
derstands how to properly ear for her
self. Of course nearly every woman
nowadays has medical treatment at such
times, but many approach the experi

trial of strength, and when it is over
her system has received a shock from
which it is hard to recover. Following
right upon this comes the nervous strain
of caring for the child, and a distinct
change in the mother results.
There is nothing more charming than
a happy and healthy mother of children,
and indeed child-birth under the right
conditions need be no hazard to health or
beauty. The unexplainable thing is
that, with all the evidence of shattered
nerves and broken health resulting from
an unprepared condition, and with am-1
