My Trip ta Junior Week Last Year
Monday I got ready, went to Be
rea, saw Mr. S pence, then on to the
depot and waited for the train about
zo minutes. Then started. On my
way to Lexington I passed many
bluegrass farms. Arrived at Lexing
ton about 4:15 p. m. The Boy Scouts
were there to meet us, so we went
up to State University with them.
After signing up for our bunks, we
all went out and sat on the grass
while Mr. Buckler talked to us.
Then it was time to wash and get
ready for supper. After supper we
went out on the lawn and listened
to a sermon by a preacher from up
town. At the close of this service
we went to the new chemistry build
ing to a picture show. Afterward,
not having wood to make a camp Are,
we went to Our hall and went to bed,
We got up Tuesday morning at
5:30. Part of us went swimming In
the Y. M. C. A. pool; the others took
setting-up exercise. At 6:45 we had
breakfast at the State University
We formed in line and marched to
our classes (lectures) at 7:45. The
first lecture was on 'Gas Enginea
and How to Operate Them." Next a
lady gave us a lecture on what we
ahould eat and what we should not
eat At 10:15 we went to hear Pro
fessor Roberts lecture on "doils."
This was instructive. Chapel waa at
11:00, Dean Cooper giving tha Wel
coming Address. Wa had dinner in
the Cafeteria at 12:00 and" from that
time until 2 o'clock was our rest
At two o'clock w n arched over to

After all of these lectures and
classes wa went down on tha Uni
versity Athletic Field (for, "AH work
and no play makes Jack a dull boy") !
and played baseball and volley ball
to our hearts' content Then we
cleaned up for aupper.
After supper we went out on the
lawn for vesper services, to worship
Him who made us and all the beauti
ful things around ua. We then at

I would tell you each day'a pro
gram, but I saw so many things that
I would have to make a book to get
them in. So I shall give a skip to
Friday at Chapel.
Wa had all been looking around to
find suitable persons for State Club
officers. The following were nomi
nated for President Walter O. Han
ner, Hopkins county; Samuel Whit
ney, Taylor county; Glennus Croley.
Whitley county; Status Freeman,
Madison county. The boy from Hop
kins won over tha boy from Madi
son by ten votes. Next we elected
Vice President and Secretary.
After dinner we had our last
The Giant of the South
Its immense popularity is dus not only to
tha fact that every line in it is written for South
ern farm families by men and women who
know and appreciate Southern conditions, but
to the practically unlimited personal service
that is given to subscribers without charge.
Every year we answer thousands of ques
tions on hundreds of different subjects all
without charge. When you become a sub
scriber this ...valuable personal service is
yours. That is one reason why we have
classes and baseball games at the
Great Junior Week.
Saturday morning we got up at
4:30 as some had to leave then and
we wished to tell each other good
bye. After breakfast some of ua
"took in" a little more of Lexing
ton. At 10:00 I went to the depot, pur
chased my ticket boarded the train
and came home, feeling that I had
spent one of the most pleasant and
profitable weeks of my life.
Berea, Madison County.
More than 150 people in the Pop
lar Grove community attended a com
munity meeting at the schoolhouse
last Wednesday night, May 31. The
County Agent discussed "The Value
of Community Meetings and the Co
operation of Farmers." The latter
part of the meeting was very inter
esting because more than a score
of questions concernfng fertilixer,
livestock, crops, bees, etc., were asked
and discussed. More than 100 bul
letins were distributed to the people
who desired them on the subjects
they were most interested in. Before
the meeting closed arrangements
were made to have another commu
nity meeting on June 30. At this
time it is hoped that the County
Agent will give a lantern slide lec
ture on farm crops and club work.
The Junior Club work was mention
ed and a movement was started for
the organization of a club in charge
of Mrs. Cook.
We hope that a permanent com
munity organization will be perfected
at Poplar Grove; it is a real jood
farming section, and the people are
very anxious to grow and develop
in tha way of community life.
One of the biggest needs of Otta
wa, Quail, and Poplar Grove com
munities ia a limestone" pulverizer.
Each of these communities is in
reach of limestone but not in avail
able form. A pulveriser would make
it possible for these soils to produce
almost any crop with a liberal ap
plication of phosphorus.
The County Agent visited a num
ber of farmers in each of tha above
communities and found farm work
well up-to-date and croua
unaer ne -stirring interest or many
Carl Brown, a
club member, was visited and it was
found that he produced 53 bushels of
corn per acre last year in the Quail
community at a cost of 19 cents per
bushel. He broadcasted his fertiliz
er, which attracted the attention of
many farmers after the corn was
harvested, and they are doing like
wise. Carl continues thia year aa a
club member and is growing corn and
The club work in Rockcastle county
is bringing about quite a change
along the line of agriculture, live
stock, and poultry, poultry being the
biggest money making proposition In
the county. We hope that Rock
castle will reach $2000 income this
year from poultry; and poultry prod.
JUNIOR AGRICULTURAL CLUBS

When I wss a little girl I heard

man praying in the woods, one In

the father with ahining, upturned

Again, when the father and mother
spoke to each other, I couU not un
