A week in club camp with the best

a week spent in the school room in

events of the year.
LOYAL WORKERS' JUNIOR AC.RI
The ice cream supper given by the
Loyal Workers' Club, Saturday night,
July 8, waa a great success.
The school yard looked very pretty,
with the tables spread with their
white covers and a boquet of flowers
on each, crepe paper draped from
tree to tree and Japanese lanterns
shedding a soft ray of light over all.
There was plenty of cream and cake
for everyone, with Judge Goodloe,
John McWilliams, and Harry Morgan
dinning out the cream and the club
members taking orders and serving.
The net proceeds were $25; $7 of

Junior Agricultural Club members

will be in the ring for twenty-three
premiums aggregating $1,595. The
larest tingle premium offered will be
$200. There will be two of these, the
next one will be $150, and from this
point they will range downward to
two premiums of $5 each.
The stock yards here in Louisville
rre still having many inquiries for
ctr loads of first-class calves for this
contest which cannot be filled. A
count usually asks for about twenty-
five calves to allow a pick of sixteen
for a carload for the show. We have

calves needed here in Kentucky and
have had to buy them from the West.
It seems a shame that we have to

"The object of
the Rarm Bureau,
in formal lamina,
is to create a conn
tun toadvance ami
improve the agri
culture of the coun
ty, to co-0ierate
with the Mate I ol-
leges of Agriculture
and the United
of Agriculture in
the employment of
a county agent or agents: to develop a
definite program ol work that will bnna
to the county a better economic, social
and educational condition so as to make
farming more profitable and country life
"The mission of the Farm Bureau it to
give service. It is not an uprising ol out
raged farmers nor was it organised to
accumulate strength enough to light the
other fellow. The Karm Bureau grew Irom
a Hrsire on the part of the farmers for bet
ter production. It had its beginning in the
south where demonstration agents were
hired to try to teach the cotton farmers
how to fight boll-weevil. This was in
IU(M, and when the hrst I ounty I-arm
Bureau was organised in the north ten
veara aao there were three hundred c-ountv
farm demonstration agents working in the
south. It is because the Farm Bureau is
builded from the ground up, wittr the
county organization as the basic unit, that
it has been storm-proof.
The Bigf tst Job.
Transcending all the other work of the
Farm Bureau is the establishment of
strong local units of the organization in
every community of the land. Without
strong local units composed of men ami
women doing the every-day work ol the
farm, srlliug the products of their farm
labor, and buying things to make better
homes and better farms and better rural
life, the Farm Bureau is without that
which justifies its esistence. Where we
are losing members, where people are dis-
tisned, where lolks do not think that
they are getting value received for their
due, there you will tind a local unit that
is not functioning properly. Smiething
is wrong, and it is up to the members
themselves to analyze the situation and
find out what it is. You will remember
how the Lord commanded (Wdeon, saying
"'Now, therefore, go to, proclaim in
the ears of the people, saving, whosoever
is fearful and afraid, let him return, and
depart early from .Vaunt tlilead."
"It seems to me that we may very well
say to the Farm Bureau host today:
" 'Whosoever is fearful and afraid,
let him return and depart early from
out of the stuff of my dreams, I
build the future.
You think me unladen while you
tear the burden of life; but day by
city the load is laid upon me, and
soon I must bear it all.

and I shall grow strong; lead me to

shall love beauty and find out justice
The world comes to me its life to

For Strong Hearts.
For we have a great work yet to do,
and it is no work for the sirk at heart, the
weak and the fearful. What, then, is our
work and our future?
"If I had my way, t would make an
ideal county farm bureau. I would ei
pand it on a state-wide basis and call
that the state farm bureau. I hen I
would expand that on a nation-wide basis
and rail that the American Farm Bureau
Federation. Hut the movement is ton
young for that yet. It will take more
than ten years of education and organiza
tion to reach this ideal. 1 he Farm Bureau
believes that the safeguarding and promo
tion of agricultural interests are vital to the
public welfare, and that these interests
i an best lie protected by the united action
of all, regardless of factional or political
differences It dcienda for its strength
uxxi the kind of support given it by the
local communities, county and state or
ganizations and the co-operation which it
receives from the various agencies inter
ested in the welfare of agriculture.
Our First Effort
"The Farm Bureau is a mutual self
help organization for the f.irmer. Our
first task is one of organization and co-operation.
Our tirst rrlort to be of real
service to the farmer is to secure for him
a measure of economic justice.
"For instance, every man who moves j
onto the farm to take up that wink as a
life occupation decides upon that calling
with the idea of making a living for him
self and h is family, to proviile t he necessary
means of a comfortanle living as well as
educational features for his children.
Hence, anything that ran be done to in
crease the net income of that farm will
start the owner on the road to purchasing
the necessities of life. It is an everlasting
cycle when the farmer quits buying,
ever)-body has to quit.
Our whole co-operative marketing '
program is based on a sound, thorough i
analysis of business conditions. Our legis
lative program is builded from the thoughts
of the sane, safe, agricultural interests of i
the country. Our organization is builded I
with the same thought in mind, and if J
these conditions can be righted it will
mean not only more products on the farm, I
out better equipment, better homes, bet-1
ter schools and (letter churches, and above .
all, a better class of citizenship when the '
farmers of our forty-eight states once
learn that 'Together We Win' is the watch
word to follow." '
