'LONG BRANCH BOYS' CLUB
Doing Goed Work In Community .
Says Prominent Man
The Long Branch Community Club
in PicJens County staged another
one of its successful meetings in
August. This time the club was
honored by having as its guest Dr.
C. B. Smith, of Washington, D. C.,
Chief of the Office of Extension
Work. Dr. Smith did not hesitate
to compliment the bo5ii for the suc
cessful work which they are doing.
The regular monthly program was
carried off in fine style, each mem
ber contributing his full support in
making it such. One by one the
boys told the condition of the corn
and pigs being grown under their
m'lanacmcnt. It was unanimous that
the ecr1 club corn in the community
was better than other corn growl
side by side.
A strilking feature of this clib
1t1eei w \C:,:; the presence of fifteen
of the chlb boyF' pruents six or
eight of whom spoke very enthusia
tially :n tavor to the goci wor!k
being dn' by the club, saying that
it was nXt. to the church and the
school in the de "elopmtent of the comn
munity. The falther~ (f Ahe pres=ident

great value to himself, as well as to

you boys grow corn better than the
other folks around you. It is my
impression that you should grow
more legumes.. This land around here
vTcppars to need humus.
"One of the things which I would
like to emphasiz is the need- of
edicltion. I am glad to see this
nice schoolhouse here. The study of
books is the short route to educa
tion. E';xperience s t dear school,
for it requires too much time to
eanin it. What we need, not only
in our farming, but in everything
else, is more system. That is why
the Ford automobile plant can turn
outt So many cars. They have a well..
dleveloped system. Trwo men within
my acquaintance started out in life
with about the same opportinities.
One purseud en education, fthe other
did not. At tiie pro'ent ti'me the
educaeted man has attainedl success.
The other mian is a failure. This is
the di fference betwveen being educat

it take~s effort, but I beClieve you boys
are willing to putt forth the effort."
