To Do Own Judging
Children's Gardens Committee Makes
Plans Much Interest And Enthu
siasm In Work Form Of Record
Card Adopted More Gardens Reported
The Central committee of the Child
ren's Gardens Department, which Is
composed oX the chairman of all the
local committees on Maul, met In the
Alexander House Settlement last Sat
urday morning to talk over the child
ren's gardens contest now In progress.
Discussion centered about the proper
method of scoring gardens so that a
fair decision could be rendered by the
Judges. No agreement could be reach
ed upon the most essential points In
an elaborate score card and the form
given below was finally suggested as
being the simplest and yet the
most Inclusive which could be found.
Those who attended the meeting
Miss Lydia Crickard, Mrs, W. B. Wed
dick, Mrs. Ella Austin, Mrs. W. F.
Crockett, E. A. Brown, C. E. S. Burns,
J. T. Fantom, U It. Mathews, Will J.
Cooper, Carl Rose, R. C. Bowman, A.
C. Bowdish, R. B. Walker, and W. S.
The discussion of this committee
brought out several very Interesting
facts. The contest is not primarily
a contest for a prize. It was repeat
edly emphasized that the children
should be Impressed with the fact
that they were "doing their bit" by
raising food stuffs; that the Presid
ent's appeal to the people of the Unit
ed States was a direct appeal to them ;
that the prize takes a secondary place.
Another point receiving emphasis
was that by means of this contest the
children will be doing their share in
lowering the cost of living in, the
family. The cost of food is rising and
the value of the dollar is going down
and any produce raised will help their
family pocketbooks. On the other
hand, every pound of food raised by
the children will mean one pound more
of food in the open market with which
the government can feed our soldiers
and our allies.
The education which a child rece
ives is of course recognized by all.
And this Garden Contest education
will be of long standing with many of
them; for once having learned how to
grow things successfully they will be
more likely to continue having gar
dens than ever before.
Help Make Better Citizens
The social aspect of this contest Is
also an important feature. The organ
ization of this committee is along the
same general line of the old county
fair committee. Everyone knows the
success of that organization.
Garden chairmen were appointed
for each community. It is their duty
to form about them a committee for
that specific community. If the organ
ization is properly accomplished it will
be of great benefit to the locality In
which the committee works because
It will Interest a larger number of
people In the youngsters.
Committee meetings to solve the
problems which are already arising,
visiting the gardens and placing ones
self In friendly contact with each
child under ones supervision will help
that child not only in this present
contest but as a future citizen.
How To Use Score Card
Each committeeman should hove a
proportionate number of the score
card as Illustrated. He or she will
thus keep a record of that child's
garden throughout the progress of the
contest. Frequent meetings of the
local committee will help individual
members to give their best advice and
encouragement. A simple plan of
marking has been adopted, with 100
as a maximum. The condition of
the garden will be marked once each
month. Certain facts should be borne
In mind such as the interest of the
gardener which will be shown by the
condition of the garden ,the difilcuties
he has to overcome, the thought he
puts into Ills work, the quality and
quantity of material produced. Hav
ing all these facts in mind It should
be a comparatively simple matter for
Miss Local Committee to tell whether
Johnnie's garden is worthy of 95
last month and perhaps only 60 this
month; Johnny having played too
Many Gardens Started
Hundreds of children are working in
gardens on every part of Maul and
Director Mathews and his fprce have
their hands full in supplying seed
needed. However another supply was
received this week, and it will be pos
sible to furnish everybody.
Gardeners' Troubles Begin
The young gardeners' pilikias have
already begun. At Spreckelsville the
kiddles got their seed in only to have
It taken out by neighbors' chickens.
War was about to be declared on the
chickens, when some one came to the
rescue ,and it Is understood that the
garden plot is to be fenced at once.
