COUNTY'S HOME DEMONSTRA
TION WORK FOR 1918
The months of February and March
were spent in organizing Home Dem
onstration, Adult Poultry, Canning,
Bread, and Boys' and Girls' Poultry
The lessons on food prduction, gar
dening and poultry were given with
.appropriate demonstrations on pre
iserving eggs, etc. $992.45 worth of
reggs were produced and consumed in
'the homes, as meat substitutes in ad
dition to those set and sold.
With the aid of Mr. C. A. McFaddin,
District Agent and Mr. P. H. Sann,
Farm Demonstration Agent, we or
ganized a War Garden Club in the
town of Manning.
As a fitting close for this month we
invited the Chairman of the Council
of Defense and the County Food Ad
ministrator to unite with us in con
ducting a campaign in the interest of
food production and conservation
Miss Gladys Smith, Especial Assist
ant State Agent, was with us for
these meetings and demonstrations.

in the South, we are now collecting
contributions of canned fruits and
preserves, to send to the Navy League
of the United States.
In June and July, we expect to hold
our County Short Course for our Club
members and also to hold all-day L
community meetings in every section
of the county. At .these meetings, we
expect to teach canning, preserving, L
drying, brining and pickling.
In August, September and October,
we are going to continue our lessons L
on nutrition, with additional demon
strations in the use of .ubstitutes,
such as wheat, meat, fats and sugars.
The utilization of milk products and
cottage cheese and butter making will O
also be given.
