INTEREST IN CLUBS
Caisps At Fair Grounds To Ac
commodate Youthful Agriculturists
One of the least spectacular features
of the 1919 state fair is bound to prove
the greatest feature in itg far reaching
influence upon the future of agricul
tural, horticultural and industrial de
velopment in Oregon. This i the de
partment devoted to the boys' and
girls' Industrial clubs, covering the
following exhibits: t orn growing, po
tato growing, vegetable eardenine.
poultry raising, pork production, sheep
raising, calf raising, dairr herd record
Keeping, no ine
tpariment, it is evident that there is
jthe keenest interest taken in the work
jby th? cluhs throughout the state, and
if here will be some surprisingly fine ex
hibits made by the youngsters, who are
spurred on by the fact that there is a
fund of $1000 in cash to be divided
among them, in addition to the possi
bility of a free course at the summer
school at the Agricultural college.
To add further interest to the fair
exhibits there is provision made for
both a boys camp and a girls camp on
the grounds for at least three days ot
the fair. Each county is authorized to
send two boys and two girls to this ,
camp, these being members of indus
tral clubs who have scored the greatest
number of points in any one club pro
ject, the county defraying the expense
of transportation to and from the fair.
Thetate fair bqurd is to provide meals
tents and cots, but each boy or girl is
expeetcd to provide their own beddinii.
Suitable persons will . be selected to
have supervision over the two camps,
and every club member will be required
to submit to the rules and regulations
